Just started reading Two Graves, be Preston & Child. This is the 12th book of theirs I am reading, and I really like them. Their first book, Relic, is really good, but a not so good movie.

^ What did you think of The Stranger in particular? I had to read it for school last semester, and personally loved the exploration of ideas, but couldn't deal with the main character, despite his quirks being the entire point of the book.

 

Coincidentally, that's exactly how I'd describe my feelings toward Catcher in the Rye... Meh when actually reading it, exceptional when analyzing it later.

I got this from Amazon.UK a few days ago.

 

Starting to read it now. It has a lot of backstory and

history to Alton Towers itself, before the theme park

came into being, as it is today.

Not a lot of photos in it, but so far has started out, an interesting read.

It was an interesting read, but I went back and reread the second half and that was when I really started to get it and enjoy it.

Got the Kane Chronicles. It's from the guy who wrote Percy Jackson. Percy Jackson was good, but nothing great, so I thought I'd give it a chance. Plus, it was $10 for all three books on my Kindle.

^The movie is excellent, but difficult to watch (for understandable reasons).

 

I like to read one "moldy classic" per year; this year, it's Victor Hugo's Les Miserables. There's not a lot of singing in it, strangely enough.

I just finished Signals of Distress. It wasn't bad but I did not like the ending. I want to read MaddAdam, the last if Margaret Atwood's amazing trilogy, but not sure what my book club will pick next. Hopefully I get to choose!

Just read the first Cirque du Freak book. As with most books that are movies, it was completely different from the movie, and I do like the book better.

Started re-reading the Lost World. I haven't read it for a long time, and I totally forgot everything about it so it's like reading a brand new book. I forgot how incredibly different the movie is.

Not reading any book right now. I guess I'll read a few short stories by Edgar Allan Poe as I've read a few and really enjoyed them.
