Jar City by Arnaldur Indridason. Anyone interested in crime fiction should try it. It also has a little genetics in it. The action takes place in Iceland, a country I'm sure some people would be fascinated with (I know I am ).

Right now I'm reading the best selling book of all time: The Bible. I'm not really impressed so far..

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger. It was a short read, recommended to me by a friend. Not the best book I've ever read, but definitely worth the read

For the past 2 weeks, I have read 1984 by George Orwell and Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury in French. They were recommended by a friend when I asked for books on dystopian novels. I couldn't enjoy them too much because they were some stuffs I didn't understand. Maybe it has to do with the fact that the last time I read a book in my personal time, it was really long ago.

Next on my list is The Day of the Ants in French by Bernard Werber. I just found out that this is a trilogy and I'm reading the second book but oh well.

Whew, ok! A few months ago I finally finished Mary Stewart's excellent Arthurian saga, including her Merlin trilogy (The Crystal Cave, The Hollows Hills, and The Last Enchantment), followed by the tough to track down The Wicked Day and the out-of-print The Prince and the Pilgrim. What a journey, I tell you.

Then after that I tried to get back to Brian Fagan's Cro-Magnon, and it worked for a bit, but soon I got sidetracked again by Phil Jackson's Eleven Rings, which I went through.

Then I finally read Alice's Adventures in Wonderland for the first time ever, and now I'm almost done with Through the Looking Glass, which is somehow even trippier.

It's awesome

Been reading a lot of Star Trek novels recently, not brilliant literature but fun.

I also started a new Sci-Fi trilogy recommended by a friend called Silo. The first book is called Wool and it was very good.

I find Star Trek novels to be a nice safe read, because overall they are enjoyable.

Reading Bossypants, Tina Fey's autobiography. I'm trying to read more about the people I admire in their own words. Maybe their struggles and successes will inspire me in my own life

I just finished this book called 'Death Benefits' by Sarah N. Harvey. ヾ(o・ω・)ノ
It was an amazing book, got me very emotional and had a fantastic story line.

I'm now reading 'Emma' written by Jane Austen. (◕〝◕) It's a good book, but has very old English, haha. But I love how romantic it is.

I just finished The Disassociation of Haruhi Suzumiya and now I'm regretting picking up the book as soon as it came out since I won't get the end of the story for at least another four months. Don't you just hate it when that happens?

The Twelve, the sequel to The Passage. Justin Cronin is an awesome author, that's all I can say.

Citadelle by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, a unfinished work. It would had been interesting to see how it would had been if he would had finished it himself.

Fifty Shades trilogy... in two days for ~2K pages... the first one was quite interesting... thematically, but the sequels were your standard girly porn... the writing was decent throughout; characterization (narrator exempt) was paper-thin (if not wishful), nonetheless the main character was indeed very interesting... and that's what makes it worthy to check out, unlike commercial fiction, self-published artworks give out a piece of the creator's insight, fragmented, biased, complicated, etc... yes! but still extremely interesting, more so than what we usually get in mainstream art.

I have read The Day of the Ants by Bernard Werber. It was more enjoyable than 1984 and Fahrenheit 451 because of the different perspectives on human nature. Maybe I will enjoy those books more if I read them again in the future since I cannot understand them well now.

My next book will be The Society of the Spectacle by Guy Debord in French. I heard about this book somewhere and how some parts have become true now. So I thought "Why not read it and let's see what it is about?".
