Paper Towns. I'm a huge John Green fan
His Dark Materials
A Hero With a Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell
Boyfriends with Girlfriends by Alex Sanchez c:
Throne of Midnight, (second book in the Throne of Glass series) and it's honestly one of the best books I've read in a long ass time that hasn't become a movie yet. Pick it up, it's sooo good.
The Picture of Dorian Gray. Really enjoyed it, though at times it kind of lost my interest; it brought it back pretty quickly.
"A Storm of Swords"... which I am actually still reading. It's my second time through it.
I just finished reading The Grim Company by Luke Scull Hella funny book.
I just finished Bram Stoker's Lair of the White Worm, and right now I'm reading Dante's Inferno. So far it's pretty good, I'd say. I'm thinking of rereading Slaughterhouse-Five after that. I really love all of Vonnegut's works.
Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck. A shhort, simple story that, much like the Grapes of Wrath, managed to be really depressing. Pretty good though, I'll have to check out some of his other works after I finish Crime and Punishment
Why Do I Do That?: Psychological Defense Mechanisms and the Hidden Ways They Shape Our Lives by Joseph Burgo.
I'm currently reading Halo: The Fall of Reach by Eric Nylund its a good read so far just as action packed and intense as the game. I love games with deep stories.
The last book I finished was a book called Our Daily Bread. It was a Swedish book and it was slow at first, but then it kind of grew on me and I think it was worth it reading it. Now I'm reading Capital (by Karl Marx). These first chapers are soooo hard to digest. But it's still interesting.
Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel..
It's gripping but hard-going at times. Amazingly well written though.
A Work in Progress by Connor Franta. He's such a talented and inspiring person, and his book is my favourite of all times!
Finished reading the 27th edition of The Journey Prize Stories: The Best of Canada's New Writers. I enjoyed reading all of the 12 short stories in the collection. Some of the stories were thought provoking as they touched on the meaning of being, life, and relationships.
The last book I read was Garbology by Edward Humes. It's for this Waste Management class I am taking. It's quite an easy read and great for people who don't know much about the subject. It really gives you a good perspective of the hold that consumer culture has on the U.S. and really opens your eyes to the amount of waste that we produce. Remember everyone, it's reduce FIRST and then reuse and recycle.
The last book was "Survivor" by Charles Palahniuk. This is one of my favorite authors.
The last book I read fully was Catcher in the Rye but I think I'll have to re-read it soon to fully understand it and I'm currently reading Atonement.
I'm almost finished so I might as well get mention it:
Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut. It's a great book, but I personally don't see the big deal about it, really.
