novels, books, biographies, poems, textbooks, articles, scrolls, tabloids, religious doctrines, whatevs. if yr reading it or just read it, post it here. preferably with a little description.
right now i am reading:
Perdido Street Station by China Mieville - i'm reading this slow, 'cause it's a pretty tough read for me, but i love it so far. the world mieville is creating is super fun and fascinating. on every page he hints toward something incredibly awesome just around the corner. he only shows you a small fraction of what his amazing city has to offer, but he's contantly dropping hints about the rest his city and the rest of his world. it makes the story come to life in a great way. of course i'm still early in the book, so i'm looking forward to learning more about new crobuzon and bas-lag.
Dark Places by Gillian Flynn - i'm almost done with this one. this is sort of a crime/mystery thriller, but hold on, it doesn't totally suck. it's a pretty original story with a fantastic main character. the protagonist isn't an anti-hero so much as she's just kind of a dick. yr still forced to sympathize with her and root for her though, just 'cause she's just such an interesting character. the story isn't that engaging and the other characters are pretty meh, but it's well written and the main character was enough to get me to read the whole thing.
A Coney Island of the Mind by Lawrence Ferlinghetti - this is just a little book of poems that i read through probably once a month because it's my favorite collection of poems ever. i picked it up last night because it was there and it's still incredible. if you like poetry, or if you don't like poetry, you should try this one sometime.
so what have y'all been reading
