@Napiform The Count of Monte Cristo is awesome. After I read it (I think like five years ago or so?) it was my favorite book for a long time. Can't remember it enough at the moment, definitely could read it again soon.

@Emily 1984 is a classic, another great book. A little frightening that some of it doesn't sound too far off.

 

I just finished reading Let The Right One In. It's been a while since I've devoured a book, it was so good. Highly recommend. Usually hate watching movies of books that I like but it has really good reviews so I'll probably check it out. Can't imagine how they could put some of the things from the book in it, pretty crazy shit.

@Napiform @DonValentino - For sure. I had just recently read the book when I chose this name for codex. Best book I've ever read in my life.

But, here's what I'm reading now - notes :(

Does listening to audio books count as reading?

I'm sure we'd love to know what you're listening to! :D

 

I'm currently reading textbooks which is thrilling. Art history so fascinating ;P

Reading Gone Girl right now. Just hit the point that really makes things interesting in the story, though I do find some passages quite contrived. I can almost feel the author's ego shining through in some parts, like she's so proud of herself for having typed out this or that rant. Otherwise, a decent story so far, and I can't wait to finish it so I can see the movie and watch the perfection that is Rosamund Pike.

Definitely! This is the first book I'll have finished in years (yay brain fog!) so I'd love to discuss. I'll let you know when I'm done! :)

Just finished Superman: Earth One vol 2. LOVED IT from start to finish.
Heart is still aching from one scene though. Dang good writing if you can get an emotional response over a fictional character.

Can't wait until the next volumes of it, Batman, and Teen Titans in the Earth One universe.

 

Up next:

The Opposite of Loneliness: Essays and Stories by Marina Keegan

It is really really good. Its a collection of the authors writing that she wrote while she was attending Yale. She died and in her honour her family published her writings. This young woman's outlook on life is enchanting. 

 

"An affecting and hope-filled posthumous collection of essays and stories from the talented young Yale graduate whose title essay captured the world's attention in 2012 and turned her into an icon for her generation."

 I'm dying for Clariel. Garth Nix has been promising it for years and the snippet only makes it worse!

 

I was so mad at him with how Keys to the Kingdom turned out at the end. Still haven't forgiven him.

 

I spend most of my life dipping in and out of High Fidelity so my copy of that is always lying around.

 

I quite like what I've read of Nick Hornby but  have not read High Fidelity because he suddenly got super popular gave the book covers a revamp and is selling for three times the price I used to get it for from my local bookshop :(  Have you been enjoying it? I don't think I'll get it unless it's really good or goes on sale.

 

 

Finnegans Wake by James Joyce

Lol good thing I'm starting now because that means that I can hopefully actually understand it by the time I die :p

 

I'm waiting for the day where I can actually read past the first page without zoning out and coming back to it after a mug of tea and just having to reread it again.

 

 

Recently finished (reading not eating): A Case of Exploding Mangos

"Justine" by Marquise De Sade. I have heard that it is a super racy book but what one considers racy may be anothers norm. Well, De Sade is sick even against today's wild standards!! But at least now I can "argue" what the book is about, the premise, language, etc. I am looking for some lighter reading after this for sure!

Same here in relation to GoT. It's bad when the TV series is catching up to where I left off. ><
