Currently reading Jeff Vandermeer's Authority, second in the "Area X" trilogy. Annihilation was short but really good so I can't wait to get further in!

Rereading "The Wolfen" by Whitley Strieber



Probably the only werewolf novel I've ever found creepy.

Damn shame that the movie adaptation is by far the single worst werewolf movie ever made. Don't know how they managed to take the scariest werewolf story and turn it into such hot garbage.

I may be mad but I'm perfectly good at it.
The Book of Dust, volume two. It's actually a bit of a let down. The end of The Amber Spyglass hinted at something great that I can't quite put my finger on. I liked the original trilogy so much and I would have been happier if it had been left as a completed story.

In Stereo. Where Available.
I'm almost finished with the Battletech Warrior trilogy. Might move on to some Shadowrun stuff next. Kind of on a 90's FAFSA kick right now.

At the time being, much of my reading has been confined to either John Romer's first History of Ancient Egypt book (they're a bit dense so reading back through them is a... frustratingly recurring incident), or digging through my NatGeo subscription from the last few years.

I'm reading this thread haha!

Nah but for real, I'm not much of a reader but I just finished The Glass Castle and I really enjoyed it!
The ending is super bittersweet and it almost made me tear up!

The Museum of Dr. Moses, Joyce Carol Oates, short stories.

Another collections more in the horror genre, and quite good: she has a real knack at melding her literary talents with the macabre. I'm particularly impressed by the story Feral; worth the read for that one story. Also, how does she mange to write as much as she does? It can be a bit even, and yet, she has so many stories that hit the ark, it's almost baffling.

But Feral shows her at her best: exploring the dark side of suburbia; do you know where your children are? :p
 
im reading:
  • A Game of Thrones- Book 1 of The Song of Fire and Ice (for fun, I'm trying to read the books before I watch the tv series, so far so good)
  • Gullivers Travel (for school, even with the eighteen century talk, its an entertaining read but its boring when characters are sitting down and discussing politics)
  • A Bridge of San Luis Rey (another class, pretty short and written beautifully)

I'm not much for a reader, but I have delved myself into the world of Eragon, reading currently the last book in the series. After reading basically the first book, I don't think I will ever go back watching the horrid version of a movie.
Perhaps if someone else would take up the stick and actually make a series then maybe I would check it out, but so far, really enjoying the series as in book related that is.

Ladies, form a line.
Finishing up Golden Age by Naomi Novik, a short story anthology set in the Temeraire universe (give or take an alternate timeline or two).

For anyone who hasn't read this series, I thoroughly recommend it. Napoleonic warfare with dragons, you can't go wrong with that.

Currently reading 1984 by George Orwell, at the moment. I can definitely say that I'm loving it so far.

Once I'm done with 1984, I'll be moving onto Metro 2033. Looking forward to reading that too.

Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow by Yuval Noah Harari, which I have been meaning to read for a couple of years and seems ironic in this time of mortality. I'll probably finish my reading bucket list before quarantine is up.

I am currently reading the Aeneid and I will soon be reading Freud's Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality.

Currently re-reading Mort by Terry Pratchett. Best way to describe this book is "Death takes an apprentice, loses his mojo, and gets a job as a short-order fry cook."

I'm rereading Hillbilly Elegy by JD Vance. It has a poignancy, particularly now.
