reading Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor E Frankl (a memoir from the Nazi death camps) , LOST and Philosophy (philosophy in the show LOST...my favorite show ever.) and as for manga, I picked up Lucky Star volume 1 and it is greatly amusing me. Next in line are Mistborn: The Well of Ascension and then Mistborn: The Hero of Ages, by Brandon Sanderson.
Can't wait for:

I just finished reading C. S. Lewis's space trilogy (Out of the Silent Planet, Perelandra, That Hideous Strength). He's a ridiculously good writer: very descriptive, very evocative, and very profound. Every word seems to be dead on, and if there are any superfluous ones, I haven't seen them.

Wolfbreed by S.A Swann . Man I'm slow, it took a few chapters before I realized this novel's story is almost completely based off Lynn Okamoto's Elfen Lied. My goodness, even the main character's name is Lily.
Shame on me for not reading the notes at the start of the book.

Not really a Novel but,

Astonishing X-Men- Joss Whedon
Very well written, better than some novels I've read.

I'm reading Matilda by Roald Dahl at the moment. It's an illustrated version from the childrens' section, too.

Haven't got much time for reading atm seeing as how I'm either studying or watching anime but:

The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky (almost done)

The Sands of Mars by Arthur C. Clarke (only just started)

A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin (loved the TV show and I can't wait for the next season to start)

After waiting five fucking years, I finally have a copy of A Dance With Dragons by George R R Martin. Unfortunately because of the painfully long wait unless this book as epic as the second coming of Jesus, I will officially declare it "The Book That Wasn't Worth The Wait". Not sure how long it's going to take for me to finish it though. It's a fucking treekiller, at 950 pages...

80 pages in...

...okay so far...

Finished Heretics of Dune by Frank Herbert. It's the usual Dune novel by Herbert so it's very good and slow paced right up to the end when everything sort of happens in a flash. Also a politics and conspiracies are abound in the book but that's precisely why I enjoy the series.

Now off to Mass Effect: Revelation by Drew Karpyshyn. I like the games and a friend of mine has been bugging me to read it for quite some time so that's that.

Into the Niger Bend by Jules Verne -- I completed a great series called Secret of Cerulean Sand not long ago and learned that it was based in part on this novel and its sequel, The City in the Sahara. A lot of similarities, a lot of differences between the book (which takes place in Africa) and the series (which is set in the Middle East).

Currently reading the Muv-Luv Unlimited manga. I have been playing Alternative and some of the events so far have depressed me so I'm just taking a bit of break.


As for actual novels I'm in the middle of Tomorrow, When The War Began by John Marsden and enjoying it tremendously.

The City in the Sahara by Jules Verne -- pt. 2 of the Barsac Mission. A fine adventure tale overall. Secret of Cerulean Sand was an excellent adaptation and in some ways was even better than the book.
