Just finished The Dog Stars by Peter Heller. It was such a good book!! Again, not something I would have normally chosen, but decided to give it a try when I found it in the new books section of the library. It's post-apocalyptic, a pandemic hits. Not at all like any other story or movie of the same type. Very powerful story, incredible writing. Hard to read sometimes, some parts were very upsetting.

Raw Sprit: In search of the perfect dram by Iain Banks.
Informative and a good fun read a travelogue around Scotland sampling a few wee haufs.


Great book, I have passed that one onto so many people who probably would never have read his novels :D
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

About a quarter of the way through Wool by Hugh Howey. Started out as self published but now signed to century and seemingly with a film on the way. Its quite good so far. Characters are well drawn and it reminds me of Philip K Dicks The Penultimate Truth.

Got about halfway through Scent of Darkness by Margot Berwin and had to stop because it was stupid.

Currently reading 5 books. One I have to read, but I still return to the other ones, since the one I have to read is boring.
Tolkien - The Hobbit
(I was in a bookstore and read the beginning of the book, then went home and saw in Supernatural a girl reading the same part and the next day found the book in the library, it was the first day I saw it there, yay :D )
Pratchett - Snuff
Cassandra Clare Mortal Instruments series - City of Glass
(Had seen the book in the bookstore and didn't care for it too much, then saw the trailer and had to read it.

Actually, I saw the trailer for the first book, City of Bones, I'm reading now the third one.) I like the world she has created.
Peter V. Brett - The Desert Spear
Mats Traat - Tants aurukatla ümber
It's an home assignment and it's about ordinary life.

^^ 5 books at once, you don't muck about do ya? I like the way you do things!

I'm not likely to read the 50 Shades book but I am a hopeless Mr Darcy fan. My friend gave me a book to read, it's title; 50 Shades of Mr Darcy. I shall share the first sentence with you,

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good riding crop must be in want of bare buttocks to thrash.

Deary, deary me.

I was hoping to correct that. It's 6 books. I knew I forgot something, just didn't know what it was.

I've never been able to read more than one book at a time. :)
