I'm toying with reading Madame Bovary, in French!. Now I have a decent knowledge of french already, but not complete, sp I've gotten myself a firefox plugin to translate anything I highlight, so I might be able to pull it off.

Darkely Dreaming Dexter

The story of a forensic blood analyst, who is as well a serial killer. He hunts down the criminals that the police can't proove guilty and after showing him the result of his evil actions, he cuts them in pieces and gets rid of the body. This system worked from him for some 15 years, but suddenly a new serial killer appears in the city, whose style is pretty similar to Dexter's, fascinated by this that he considers art, he starts trying to catch on him, but everything starts to get complicated when this unnamed killer starts sending him mensagges and inviting him to "play".

Two of Higashino Keigo's Galileo mystery novels - Galileo no Kunou (The Agony of Galileo) and Seijyo no Kyusai (The Virgin's Salvation). These are about a genius physicist who helps police solve difficult crimes that often use scientific 'tricks'. One of the books in the series is The Devotion of Suspect X and it's the only one that has an English translation! Has anyone read it? If not, I recommend it very highly, it's quite a special mystery. It shows you the crime unfold and you know exactly who did what - this story explores motivation and is really fascinating - it also becomes genuinely moving by the ending. The movie was very nice too.

I recently reread Red Dragon by Thomas Harris. Currently rereading Silence of the Lambs, and plan to go through the series again.

Cobley's Seeds of Earth. Probably the most boring Space Opera I've read. I just couldn't get into it, and that's saying a lot considering I love Hamilton's works. There was just something about the characters, the world and the sheer info-dumping that made me race through it so I could start on JXIIH's The Traveller. Which is pure love.

I'm wading through Homer's The Iliad right now. It's certainly not light reading.

I finished Jurassic Park recently and I'm reading The Terminal Man now. Both by Michael Crichton. I don't like his style, though. I don't know why I keep reading his books...

I'm also reading The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens. His style, I do like. Yay.

The Myst Reader by Rand and Robyn Miller -- A compilation of three books based on the Myst video game series.

Death at Daisy's Folly by Robin Paige -- Third in the Kate Ardleigh/Charles Sheridan Victorian mystery series.

The Empire Strikes Back by Donald Glut -- The novelization of the best Star Wars film. There were several changes in the dialogue, most of which were trivial, but it was egregious to omit Han's "I know."

Return of the Jedi by James Kahn -- The novelization of the last Star Wars film. The writing wasn't all that great, but the scenes with Luke, Vader, and the Emperor were well done.

Tried two books last month by authors I've never heard of so and it wasn't so bad.

God's War by Kameron Hurley - May be offensive to some, well it's definitely offensive to a lot of people. But it is an, uh, interesting read.
The Quantum Thief by Hannu Rajaniemi - Wow total mindfrak, I don't even...I can't...It's just...Well nevermind, I wanted to get back into "hard sci-fi" and this is exactly what I thought I wanted.

This month I'm knocking out:
Julian Comstock: A Story of 22nd-Century America by Robert Charles Wilson - Pretty good so far, kind of a fresh take on what I've read in too many post apocalyptic scifi novels.

Also has anyone read Carte Blanche? I wanna read it but I've never read a James Bond novel before and was wondering if it's n00b friendly.

Eventually did finish Gears of War: Jacinto's Remnant, now in the middle of Gears of War: Anvil Gate. It's amazing how much reading can be done finally with some free time. There's a new book coming out in a couple of months, three whole books to patch GOW 2 to 3, Traviss has quite the story going.

I don't suppose anyone would happen to know of any GOOD mecha-related novels, would they?
