To Kill a Mockingbird
Harper Lee
Book Cover

A book about innocence, knowledge, courage, and prejudice, Scout Finch and her brother, Jem Finch, is going through a tough time during the Great Depression - their father, Atticus, a well-respected lawyer, is, of all people, protecting a black man named Tom Robinson.

One of the books that I just HAVE to finish at the point of readin the first chapter, To Kill a Mockingbird is a beautiful book. I have learned lots from reading each chapter. Currently, I'm on Chapter 12, but I won't be stuck there for long. ;D


Harry Potter and THE GOBLET OF FIRE
Just Kidding Rowling

I've just recently gotten into these, books, and they are really fuckin good.

Fallen Angels by Walter Deans Myers. I have read this book tons of times haha, it is a really good book. I recommend it highly to people who like war stories.

Why is a format necessary...? Eh.

The Heaven Stone
David Daniel

Admittedly, I'm not reading this of my own free will; I'm reading it for class, but it's one of the first school-required books I've read in a long time that didn't make me wish I were illiterate (just to clarify: I like reading, just never the awful books they make us read). That being said, though, I knew literally by page 6 the point the author was trying to make in his work thanks to an honest-to-god monologue. I thought authors were supposed to remember that effective storytelling relies on showing the details and not just stating them! Clearly this sort of subtlety is a long-lost art.

Incidentally, I think this would fit more in Media, so while I'm here I may as well bump it there.
I should get a new layout.

Probably won't, though.
Death by Black Hole by Neil Degrasse Tyson. Just started it yesterday and it's starting out to be a pretty good book.

Description-This book is one that mostly teenage/college age girls would enjoy a lot. About a 16 year old girl whose 18-year-old sister runs away. Caitlin, the main character, basically begins walking through her life as if she's asleep for it and not in control. She meets this guy Rogerson who she feel almost magnetically attracted to him, for no obvious reason, and Rogerson is not exactly the right type of person do be in a relationship with.

There is a lot of comedic relief in this book, either from humorous observations made by the main character, or interactions with more outlandish characters, such as Caitlin's ex-hippie neighbors. I find it hard to read this book for more than 20 minutes or so at a time because I feel like Caitlin is being foolish and making very bad decisions and hardly seems in control of herself. She is also very undefined- the author has characterized every character so well that I can picture all of them and understand exactly who they are- with the exception of Caitlin. However, I believe that is the author's intent, as Caitlin probably sees herself as undefined- there are many times where when she thinks if what she is doing is something she should do, she instead thinks of her older sister, and is constantly comparing herself to her sister.

The book is very well written and easy to follow, though I don't know if many guys would like it.

Oh, it is so on.
You Have to Stop This
Pseudonymous Bosch
Description- this is the finale of the Secret series. There are 5 books in the series, each one corresponding to one of the 5 senses. Book 1 is about smell, book 2 is about hearing, book 3 is about taste, book 4 is about sight, and this one is about touch. The series is told by a Lemony narrator. This installment is about Cass and Max-Ernest finding themselves in trouble when they accidentally break the finger off of a mummy during the mummy exhibit, and they soon find themselves trying to solve a mystery. There's not much I can say without revealing spoilers (anything mentioned in the blurb I do not count as a spoiler). You might have guessed this, but there is a BIG secret.
Pretty fascinating stuff. The mysteries and codes they're always cracking remind me of Professor Layton.

The Shining
Stephen King

I have just started the book a few days ago, and I haven't read a lot of it yet, but I already know the most important parts of the story from my parents who watched the movie that was made for the book. It's about a man who works with his family in a hotel as janitor. It's winter and there are no guests and when there is a power failure they get cut-off from civilization. The protagonist then turns mad and tries to kill his family. (That's at least what I heard.)

I can't really judge the book yet, considering how little I've read of it, but I already read some other books by Stephen King before, and I always found them interesting.
I'm still on To Kill a Mockingbird, but I'm the type who lieks multi-reading =P:

Rereading:

A Long Way from Chicago
Richard Peck
Book Cover

I read this in sixth grade, and I'm rereading it right now in 8th. I remember treatinbg it as the best book ever (well, before the Phantom Tolbooth, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Outsiders, Mitch Albom, and a bunch of other books came). The book is about Joey Dowdel and Mary Alice Dowdel's memorable weeks spent at their Grandma Dowdel's house. I was going through my huge piles of books to books I could sell for a fundraiser for my class, and came accros my copy of A Long Way from Chicago.

I just started rereading it yesterday night.
I'm at the last chapter.

The Rescuers

The book that was used as the basis for the classic Disney movie - it's a pretty good book. I'm having an interest in reading the original stories used for the Disney movies. The latest one I finished was the Hunchback of Notre Dame. And I just stumbled upon this book.

The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey
Trenton Lee Stewart
Book Cover

I haven't really gotten in the book yet, as I'm only two chapters in. But I'm really surprised about that - when I was reading the first book (the Perilous Journey is Book 2), I couldn't stop reading it from the first page to the 432(?)nd page. I don't know if this book will be as GREAT as the first one.

Planning to read:

The Help
Kathryn Stockett
Book Cover

I'm borrowing it from a classmate.


I'm on the 6th harry potter book, and all I can say is that I really love these books. They have been a blast to read, and I really don't want them to be over.

The Evolving Brain
F. Grantsteen

It's non-fiction, which is all I read nowadays (university does that to you). It's really just an overview of the brain, neural functions, and how our brain compares to the brain of a dinosaur and monkey. I know everything in it already from school/previous research, but it's interesting seeing other takes on the brain from different sources.
formats YOUR BUTT!

I just got into the first Harry Potter book thanks to BloodyToothBrush, and it really sucks you in pretty quickly. I stated a few weeks back (I think) though I'm only on around chapter 10 right now due to the fact I just don't have much time anymore. I'm trying to finish it over Christmas break now.
the bell jar
i've had it for months. in fact i remember starting it a week or so before i broke up with this girl. which was in august. honestly, i'm afraid to read it. i know its about the author being crazy, and so far a lot of the passages were eerily identifiable with things in my own life. does this spoiler work? maybe one day i'll finish it.

--------------------

The Light Fantastic by Terry Pratchett. I heard that the Discworld books were humorous fantasy, which is something that would be right up my alley, so I decided to try them. I haven't read a big enough variety of them to make many judgements on them, though.

Uhm, did you even read the the first post?

Wait, did you even read the thread title?

And I said book, not Manga. There's another forum for that.
Manga comes in book form.

I mean there's another forum for manga and anime. Phone books come in book form, but they don't apply here.

Actually, I just finished reading the S-T section of the phonebook. It was enlightening.

Anyways, I'm currently reading a book called 'The Exiled Queen'. Google it if you want a description.

Also, iss it me, or does it seem like this thread was made to give Giant_Shyguy book recommendations?
Well, it's not actually reading, but I've just finished the last Harry Potter audio book, in English (!). I've been listening to them since September 1, so it took exactly 4 months to finish 7 books...that's a pretty good pace, I think. The whole thing was actually to practice for my English exam (which was in October), but I liked them so much that I couldn't stop and listened to all of them.
At first I was a bit skeptic ("why is it so good? I'd rather just read them" etc.) but then I almost became obsessed with it (given how much I like HP already). The experience was at least as good as reading a book (or sometimes even better, since the reader impersonated the characters so well), and the fact that I could listen to it on the bus, before sleeping, while taking a walk with my dog etc. made it even better. Another great thing is that I learned a lot by this, in the last months I didn't even have to concentrate on the English language to understand it...which is pretty damn awesome in my opinion.
I'm a bit sad that there are no more HP books to listen to, but right now I'm trying to get the Lord of the Rings audio books, since they are my other great favorites.

Also, "The Silmarillion" by Tolkien is in progress too (also in English), but it's pretty heavy so the progress wasn't that great lately (I'm actually reading it since April).
