The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor


I LOVE The Looking Glass Wars. The sequel (Seeing Red) was pretty good too!

I, Lucifer. My girlfriend gave it me to read, and it's good so far.

The Two Towers, which I'll get back to when I finish I, Lucifer tomorrow.

And I started Lolita on the way down to my girlfriend's house on monday, but she's also reading it so I'll get it off her to finish next week. : D

I go through phases with book genres; at the moment I'm into crime thrillers so I'm currently reading Kisscut by Karin Slaughter. It's a crime thriller and so far it's brilliant.
Prior to this I read Blindsighted which is by the same author - that was very good, and from what I've read so far, this one looks just as promising.

Now i'm on to Trainspotting (still for my course, no time for reading for pleasure sadly! X.X) Despite it being stupidly confusing and difficult to read (scottish accent narration much? x.x) it's actually pretty darn good and i'm not quite sure WHY. XD Very odd...

Can I also mention i've been reading lots of shakespeare too? And that i'd do for pleasure in a heartbeat! First time reading King Lear and just adored it. <3

/nerdyness out.

Due to my English course, I have a set book I have to read.

It's Wurthering Heights *shudder* I hate it with a passion and have taken to blanking it lol

By choice, the last books I've read have been The Bartimeaus Trilogy by some dude I can't remember, the latest in the Inheritance Trilogy, Brisingr by Christophere Paolini and currently reading Ninja by some dude I can't remember the names off. It's pretty awesome so far and not typically what I choose.

The Woman in Black, by Susan Hill.

I've been lapping up her work lately, she's all I've been reading for the past few months. Love her writing a lot.

The Woman in Black is one of my favourite pieces of theatre, so I finally got around to reading it. Its just as good!

Heh, I've been set that for part of my uni course - it's not that bad but I've probably been approaching it differently from you.

Do language books count? If so, then Remembering the Kanji by Heisig (-.-) very much a "marmite" kind of book.

I really should get around to reading it. I did enjoy the movie and in most cases the book is much better. Maybe when I do get the chance I might give it a read.

I don't like any part of it, so it's likely to be tastes of books. Doesn't help that I hate it when books are written in first person. The Bartimius Trilogy (by Jonathon Stroud, just remembered lol) had bits where it was from Bartimus pov, but it was done in a comedic factor and was hysterical. Even had footnotes where he went off on a tangent.

I don't like any of the Bronte sisters' works tbh. My teacher is obsessed with them though so I'm stuck

Yeah Dan Brown's awesome, Lost Symbols is quite good as well but Angels and Demons is still my favourite. His other 3 are worth reading but the Robert Langdon books are the best.

Just finished The Painted Man by Peter V Brett, great book, can't wait for the second one and still waiting for the last 2 books in the Wheels of Time dodekalogy(?)

I've started "remains of an altar" by Phil Rickman. I'm having a bit of trouble getting into it though. Probably because I keep leaving it until really late on an evening to read it.
