    Any1 on Goodreads?

    Fizzy123. Add me you slags.


    I am currently into The Omega Men reboot. Its probably one of the most ambiguous stories I've ever read. The 'good' guys use straight up terrorist tactics and the other side are pretty much genocidal dictatortwats. Really intrigued to see how this one ends, seriously a ballsy piece of work.

    Been reading the second book of the Coldfire Trilogy, When True Night Falls by C.S. Friedman. I had to read the first one twice to like it but I really love the main anti-hero Gerald Terrant. If ever a character was Lawful Evil, it would be him. Really great writing style and if you can get through the first half of her books they pick up.

    Last thing I read was "The Call of Cthulu", which was just as fascinating (and racist) as I'd been hearing all these years.

    Oh gosh if you really want to hear Lovecraft get totally racist read The Street. I was completely disgusted and fascinated at the same time.

    Currently on the 4th book of the serie 'A song of Ice and Fire'. Been reading the saga since season 1, but with work and university (and a little bit too much of gaming), my reading pace has been significantly decreased. And my reading list keeps getting bigger (thanks Shannon).

    I recently read Notes From Underground by Fyodor Dostoevsky and was surprised to see I really enjoyed it. Now I'm rushing to read his other books. I bought a collection with some of his short stories, but right now I'm primarily reading Crime and Punishment by him.

    I grabbed my copy of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde off the shelf this morning when I realized I've never actually read the novel.

    Pretty excited about getting into that in the next few days.

    Haruki Murakami's short story collection The Elephant Vanishes. I recently finished reading Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman and thoroughly enjoyed it. While I really enjoy Murakami's longer novels, he's a very strong writer of short fiction.

    I'm also planning on reading Tolstoy's Anna Karenina someday. But I can't work up the motivation to read an 860 page novel right now.

    I had just recently finished reading the 4th book out of five from the Healers of Meligna series by K. J. Colt. I first found the series from a free selection of books that amazon offers for anyone with the kindle reading app. The first book was in a bundle of free fantasy books, so I figured I'd give it quick glance over. Within the first few chapters I was pretty hooked.

    The story takes place in a medieval time period where anyone with sickness or disease are ostracized. Adenine, merely 14 peers at through the innocent and sheltered eyes of a child. As the story progresses Adenine is quickly exposed to the true wickedness of the world in which she lives in.

    Here's the first book's (Concealed Power) summary.

    Adenine is blind and isolated in her small attic bedroom. Convinced she is the last carrier of the Death Plague, she avoids contact with the outside world.

    When her mother fails to bring her food Adenine begins to starve. Driven by her hunger, Adenine ventures into the house discovering her mother bedridden and sick. Despite her terror of infecting others, Adenine fumbles her way onto the streets of Borrelia in search of the town's doctor.

    Soon, she is surrounded by new friends... and enemies she never knew existed. Every secret unravels. Every lie is discovered. Now Adenine's life depends on who she decides to trust.

    Im rereading American Gods by Neil Gaiman.

    I'm really bad for rereading things when I have so many new books to read.

    Last I left off, I just got some Swamp Thing Comics and some new 52 Justice League. As well as the MLP comics, I think I am up to number 20 on that one.

    I had the misfortune of reading the play version which actually has a different ending and was a tad tedious to follow because they'd detailed all of the props, their exact locations, characters entering/exiting, stage description in terms of the setting and whatnot.
