Just finished How Firm a Foundation, the new Safehold book by David Weber. I was quite impressed by all that happened. Though some of the content was a little depressing for me(characters I liked that died ).

I recently completed a book by Leslie Woodsdavis titled Rune Logic.

The book was excellent, and reminded me of the old Zardoz movie.
If you enjoy Cranial Science Fiction you'll enjoy this book.

Currently I'm reading Tobias Cabral's Night Music

It's Hard SF also, but maybe a bit too brainy for some people's tastes.
I like it, but then again I'm a total SF Nerd.

Finished the Eureka Seven manga series (which differs from the anime in a number of ways), haven't got to reading my previously mentioned Halo Cryptum, honestly I think I'm going to wait for the sequels to come out since it's a 3 parter. I guess my next novel sized reading material is to arrive in the mail soon in a few days (the last Twilight book along with Halo Glasslands). As for manga I believe I'll go with Samurai Champloo.

Not reading material but I'm down to the last 3 episodes of Dragon Ball, after which I believe I'll watch the Eureka Seven anime and movie.



Bolding is fun

Finally started on Mary's Stewart's Merlin Trilogy. Been meaning to read this ever since I skimmed a few pages 10 years ago.

The Last Days of Pompeii by Edward Bulwer-Lytton -- an old Roman-era soap opera set just before Vesuvius blows its top, with love triangles, intrigue, religious tensions, and, of course, gladiators. The author makes use of discoveries made at Pompeii in the story and attempts to recreate the decadent lives of the wealthy at the time. Quite a good read, though heavy in the use of "thee's" and "thou's."

Read my first comic book... Batman: Red Rain. I actually really liked it, I loooove dark stuff! The art was interesting and I'd never heard of a Batman story like this before. Now onto the rest of the Batman Vampire trilogy, although after skimming through Crimson Mist I'd say I'll probably like it less..

I've reread Solanin; that manga/graphic novel - only 1 vol - is really great and bit depressing for me. I'm currently reading Vampire Hunter D: Raiser of the Gales

Fiasco: The American Military Adventure in Iraq by Thomas E Ricks. I've only just started it, but my word I'm quite amazed at the sheer volume of warnings that Bush and other key figures got about every aspect of the Iraq invasion before going in, all of which completely ignored. Jason Burke wasn't kidding when he said intelligence assessments can be quite crap...

I just finished reading Assassin's Creed: The Secret Crusade.
Now I'm gonna read Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood.

Yes, I'm an Assassin's Creed fangirl. :3

Library finally got around to sending me my reserved copy of Snuff. I have to admit I love the Vimes' Discworld stories the most. He's definitely come a long way from his Guards!Guards! self.

King Lear for English. Damn, that was depressing D: I liked it far more than I thought I would, though. I still can't read Shakespearean English

Sadly, I haven't been reading much in the last few years. The last book I've fully read was Hamlet for english class which was a few years ago. Any suggestions for a good book to read?

Depends on your tastes really. Why not look at what people in this thread have been reading lately to get some ideas.
