struggling through 50 shades of grey. i can't help but laugh every few paragraphs. i feel bad for the female gender if this is how insecure they really are.. haha. but at the same time, i can see why they would find it so intriguing.

I'm female and even I must say it's not a very interesting read. Naughty yes, but "groundbreaking" no.

there's no way i would call it groundbreaking. its just someone's dirty fantasy. nothing wrong with it, but nothing stellar either.

Geez this is getting repetitive

Also restarted the Trigun manga. I bought the whole collection years ago and got just past the halfway point before college started and I never got back. Well nothing's stopping mah readin' now! Also inspired me to finally open the shrink wrap on the Badlands Rumble movie; great movie and I hope they decided to make more anime for the series.

After Dark, Norwegian Wood, 1Q84, Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World by Haruki Murakami

The Great Gatsby by Francis Scott Fitzgerald

Currently reading The Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky and A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. I just do not have any time to read nowadays, so it's taking me quite long to finish these two titles.

My type of books are usually YA novels which are mostly on romance. I have 10 books sitting on my shelf. Currently, I am reading Thirst book 4 by Christopher Pike. It's a wonderful read. I am sure many of you will love it just as i did.

^ Whatever you do, don't bother with Existentialism and Humanism. It was debunked so hard even he had to admit it sucked.

Reading Kandak by Patrick Hennessey.

Oh my, a book thread! I've recently been re-reading the works of Glen Cook (Black Company & Instrumentalities of the Night") as well as some really really old English translations of more "ancient" works such as "The Way of the Dao" by Laozi.

I admit that I used to be a big fan of "Forgotten Realms" fantasy novels, which I guess is the geeky equivalent of "chick lit" .. .. although I haven't really been into it much lately, guess there's been enough fantasy-ish themed anime/manga/light novels to fulfil that need!

Well, that and "Too Big to Fail" and Alan Greenspan's autobiography "Age of Turbulence"

At long last, I've found the time to read The Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky.

The ending was a bit unexpected, I'd thought it was spoiled for me but there was a very important part left at the very end after all. All of Dostoyevsky's books make me feel as if they were written by some omniscient being, not a mere human. It is hard to believe someone could have such a piercing gaze into the furthest depths of human mind. Gives you the feeling that there is literally nothing left to be said and that what's written is the absolute truth. And we are talking about all kinds of different personalities, not only the one the writer might feel the closest to.

Started reading the Great Expectations by Dickens, been meaning to do it for a while now and it's the first book to get onto my One X's Kindle app. After that I'm planning to satisfy my craving for Murakami's novels (shame he didn't get that Nobel prize...although I feel like he's not quite ready for it) and also The Idiot by Dostoyevsky.

I am currently reading a book called "Shatter Me" by Tahereh Mafi. It is just the first book in the trilogy. It has romance, drama, takes place in a post apocalyptic future and very psychological.
I haven't finished the book yet but my thoughts so far is that it is going great. I have never come across this style of writing in a book in my life. Some people criticize it because of the style but, to me, it fits the psychological part in the book.
My advice to all readers is to never criticize the style of writing. It may be necessary. We should always learn to accept almost any style of writing and only judge the book not by its cover but what's inside.

Le rouge et le noir by Stendhal and My Àntonia by Willa Sibert Cather. Neither were bad read but Stendhal's work was kind of a left down, y expectation were probably too high.

I just finished World War I by S.L.A. Marshall a couple nights ago. It was generally good, but I felt that there was a little bit too much in the way of personal opinions by Marshall disguised as facts or categorical statements.

I'm reading Star Wars: Choices of One by Timothy Zahn now.

Mary Shelley's Frankeinstein and Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels are my latest reads. I'm looking at finishing HG Wells' The Time Machine soon.
