I re-read Polidori's The Vampyre, which is more of a short story than a book.

I also read Kizumonogatari, which is also about vampires. That had better count as a book, because it took me multiple hours to read. I couldn't put it down.

Tess of the d'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy, I hated it. Disliked the protagonist, all the supporting characters really, the plot and the writing style. Of course it has to be in our English curriculum... it was the most torturous read in all my years of high school D:

Greedy Bastards, by Dylan Ratigan. He covers just about all of the content on one of his two sites or his show but it was a good read nevertheless. Greatest example I can think of is Salman Khan and how when his only interest was in educating his cousins, he created what can very well revolutionize the face of education.

Another great example: EVs. Imagine how much progress we would have made had the EV1 not been scrapped.

A Choice of Enemies by Lawrence Freedman. Not as comprehensive as A World of Trouble but I have learned a few more minor things.

finished all potter books. amazing. would recommend it to anyone, adult or children.

read first 5 Percy Jackson. good but anything followed by Potter is just not good enough. i'm sure i would have enjoyed if it wasn't the follow up to potter.

read 1st Sooki Stackhouse(True Blood) book. okay. not really my thing. enjoyed Hunger games so i thought this would be good but, could not connect.

started reading A Princess of Mars. good so far. enjoying it.

Finished Breaking Dawn and The Host. The latter was pretty interesting - body snatching aliens invade and it's from the perspective of one of them with the host still being able to retain thought and talk with each other.

I have been catching up on Agatha Christie's Poirot series. I finished Miss Marple a little while ago, so I decided to start Poirot. I have watched David Suchet's portrayal of Poirot, and I must say his version of Poirot is what the writer would have wanted. Such resemblance!

Comparing Marple and Poirot, I prefer Poirot. This could be due to my personal depiction of what a detective should be. Marple's way of investigating....really not my cup of tea, and I could even predict who the killers are for certain cases. For Poirot, I never could guess who the killers are, and the many twists and turns certainly bewitch me.

Finished reading the fourth and final installment in the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini - Inheritance. It was good but I felt there should have and could have been more to it. The final Battle was very unusual. Also finished The Lord of the Bows by Conn Iggulden - second installment in the Conqueror series. Its a very good take on Genghis Khan and the Mongols life.

Agreed. I've pretty read everything from Agatha Christie a decade ago. Marple is really boring compared to Poirot. Can't really remember much, but Poirot has a nice start and a nice end, with Hastings.

Yeah, I love cases featuring Hastings as his "sidekick". I jumped straight to the last Poirot case, and the ending is sad, albeit a justified one. After dedicating his life to uphold justice, it is only fair that he ends his own life after he commits murder.

To be honest, I've never read any of Agatha Christie's works. I'm not much of a murder mystery novel fan. However, I greatly enjoyed the Poirot TV series. I also feel the show did a great job of capturing the time period Poirot is set in.

I highly recommend the books. The language is pretty straightforward and easy to understand, and given its length, you can finish 1 novel in a single afternoon.

Yes, the background music, the props-everything! It captures the mood of the novels perfectly. David Suchet is an amazing actor. Have you heard his real voice before? haha, this is your chance.

A tale of two cities by Charle Dickens, Une vie by Maupassant and Le Zèbre by Alexandre Jardin. The last one did surprised me, it was better than I expected.
