What kind of books do you like?
Hey I'd like some recommendations too. Something in the suspense thriller/murder mystery/detective genre. Looking for something that will have me on the edge of my seat.
1. Directing Actors
2. The Vertical Self
3. Let The Right One In
Going through my yearly re-reading of the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Currently about a quarter-way through The Two Towers.
I, Partridge: We Need To Talk About Alan.
Idk, like a psychological thriller I guess.
Manga wise I've been reading Fullmetal Alchemist Volume 7 - 8 - 9 combo, and I have another book (non-manga) called The Big Kitty I am starting on after this.
I like to read, and pretty much read anything lieing around.
I need recommendations >_>.
The last two books I got done reading were The Great Gatsby and The Hunger Games. I have Catching Fire lieing around for when I have time to read it but that won't be for a while.
My final exam in American literature is coming up. I have to read Nathaniel Hawthorne's "Scarlet Letter", as well as "Paradise" & "The Bluest Eye" by Toni Morrison. It's a 45-minutes long oral exam fully in English which is quite scary for a German girl
At least I'm done then and have my official "Master of Disaster" degree XD
CALCULUS 7E - James Stewart
The Dark Tower series, Book One, The Gunslinger by Stephen King
I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore. The movie does the book no justice!
Be sure to pick up the recently released book in the series, Dark Tower 4.5: The Wind Through the Key hole.
As for me
I've recently reread
Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
The Girl Who Play with Fire
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest
Finished reading "The Wind Through the Keyhole: The Dark Tower" a while ago by Stephen King.
Rereading "11/22/63" by Stephen King. I'm on the last few pages.
I'm also re-reading "Middlesex" by Eugenides, Jeffrey, also on the last few pages.
I really do need some recommendations... anyone? I'm open to any genre.
Not sure if you read this series or not, but when I was younger I HIGHLY enjoyed the Wind On Fire trilogy, you might want to try that out.
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. The second book of The Hunger Games Trilogy.
Good ol' Jurassic Park
A Song Of Ice And Fire: Book One - A Game Of Thrones
Just picked it up today. So far I find it to be highly entertaining.
I'll try to check it out.
I've been meaning to read this for quite awhile.
Hmm. I don't know much about those. At least recent thrillers. If you're down for detective fiction like Agent O, Raymond Chandler is a safe bet. The Long Goodbye is about 60 years old, but it's definitely worth a read if you like a good mystery.
Jesse, have you read any of Haruki Murakami's work? I know you're into Japanese culture, so I think he might be right up your alley.
I'm rereading Foundation by Isaac Asimov. What a work of genius.
