@Jedi Joe: Ender's Game was excellent, and Speaker for the Dead was really good. But you're right. Xenocide really drags. Neutral

I finished the first two parts of Fahrenheit 451 and oh. My. Goodness. Shocked

I can already say (unless the third part totally screws it up) that this is one of my favourite books of all time.

Recently finished Maskerade by Terry Pratchett and I must say that is was the funniest book I ever read. It is sort of a Phantom of the Opera parody so it had me in laughing fits 'til the end! Laughing

Finally finished Splinter Cell. The less said on that book, the better. Now reading Stephen Fry's The Liar. I'm only about 20 pages in, and I'm thoroughly enjoying it already.

Yes. For a spy who's supposedly the best, he got caught every. Single. Time. Or at least did something incredibly stupid and un-spy-y (like using a machine which he knew, or at least should have known, that makes a loud noise when used - while there was a guard in the same area). The prose was torturous. The plot was rather banal, and required leaps of logic to take seriously.

I'm reading Ender's Shadow, the companion novel to Ender's Game. Even if you've never read ender's game, you can still read ender's shadow because it takes place in the same time period as Ender's Game.

Tonight I plan to start re-reading "John Dies At The End" by David Wong. It's sequel, "The Book Is Full Of Spiders (Seriously Dude, Don't Touch it)" came in the mail last week.

Here's the trailer for the movie adaptation of John Dies At The End (for those not familiar with it). It's supposed to come out in Early 2013.

@Taral: I have had that book for 7 months now and still haven't read it, but you've inspired me to start.

Well I just started on A Calculated Risk but I ain't really making progress with it. I think I'm on page 10 or something. Sad Anyway, a few weeks earlier I bought the most recent book in the TimeRiders series. I was SO psyched when I saw City of Shadows in the bookstore and didn't hesitate to pull out my purse. I'm so glad to add another book to my prized collection and was finished with it in two days!
Sorry guys I just have to brag with my awesome collection I couldn't resit:

I'm reading The Red Necklace by Sally Gardner (per Jaina's recommendation) and A Graveyard For Lunatics by Ray Bradbury.

Year of the Black Rainbow by Claudio Sanchez. It was ridiculously annoying to get a copy of but worth it thus far. I'm a huge Coheed & Cambria fan and finally getting the novel form of the first part of the story is great. I've read the so-so comics and the story is great (though in comic form very poorly executed) and this novel is really getting me excited. I'm such a geek.

Hey! How did you know it was me? Anyways you'll love it I'm sure of it. One of the books on my wishlist is the sequel of this book, The Silver Blade or something like that. The previous book ends in a cliffhanger (sort of, let you be warned Reep!) and I'm VERY desperate to get the other one! Laughing
