I recently read "How to Save a Life" by Sarah Zarr, "The Life of Pi", and "Lucid" by Adrienne Stoltz. I really loved each of them and I strongly recommend them all. :awesome:

My reading has kinda slowed significantly. I read the entire Bronte collection and I certainly recommend them, with my favourite being The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.
I've started reading about 5 Physics books and then I get distracted by the next. I'm also reading Derren Brown: Confessions of a Conjurer and I love it, but that's probably because I love Derren :lol:
But right now I'm actually re-reading the Artemis Fowl series. I'd been recommending it to my boyfriend forever and it made me want to re-read it so I decided to kill 2 birds with one stone and now I read a bit aloud to him every night. We've just finished the first one and he loved it, so full steam ahead ready for The Arctic Incident :awesome:

The Compound was 5/5 stars in my eyes.

Right now I am reading the sequel to The Compound, about eight pages in. Already much has been written about the previous book and their current situation. I really love how the mother finally has so much control in the family business. There's this feeling in my stomach that the dad is still alive somewhere. I just know it.

On another note, I had just finished An Inconvenient Truth by Al Gore for my nonfiction book project. The book really changed my perspective on how much global warming is effecting Earth.

^I've read Good Omens too! :D

...I just finished The Bunker Diary. Took me about 2 or 2.5 hours to read total (not counting the time in between reading...). Has anyone else read it here?

This user will debate you about how important Jean Valjean is (acceptable answer: very), and the distinction between 'antagonist' and 'villain' and how the terms apply to Javert and the Thenardiers.

Over the summer I discovered a small local bookstore that specializes in crime, mystery, and thriller novels.

I only get the chance to stop in on Saturdays so I don't read through the books very quickly, but I've so far worked through three novels by Dennis Lehane (A Drink Before the War, Shutter Island, and The Drop), one P. D. James classic (Death of an Expert Witness), and a fairly recent work by John Le Carré (A Most Wanted Man). Next on my list are two more Le Carré works, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and The Spy Who Came in from the Cold.
