Also I guess this is going back a little, but I don't know many other people who have read that, so I've just got to ask what you think of it? :lol:.


I read that!!
And I think it's actually my favourite from all the one I read right after the Vampire Lestat!

I've only just seen this... :O I'm not trying to be annoying and restart a thread from ages ago, but I'm a bookworm... the urge is too great!

I'm a huge fantasy fan. My absolute favourite book has been really widely criticised, and a lot of people seem to hate it. It's 'The Magicians' by Lev Grossman. I'm never sure whether to reccommend it or not, given that so many people hate it so much. But personally, I think it's wonderful.

I'm also a huge fan of a Jack Kerouac, particularly Orpheus Emerged... That particular book is one I over-analyze... but I love it. Of course and every Kerouac fan loves On The Road and The Dharma Bums.

Like lots of people here, I also liked The Heroin Diaries, and the Dirt (what can I say? I'm a Cruehead).

And I'm a fan of Anne Rice... a friend of mine actually got to interview her! :O

Apart from that, I love Stephen King, I ADORE Oscar Wilde's works... his humour is just wonderful. Shakespeare, Poe, a friend bought me Lovecraft's collective works which I need to finish, I love Devon Monk's novels... (the Allie Beckstrom series). I could go on forever but I'll save everyone the hell that happens when I start talking about books :P.

Right now I'm reading Stephen King's Dark Tower series... The first one, the Gunslinger. I have yet to make a decision on its quality, though ^^.

... The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars ~...

That's what you should do, instead of creating a new one with the same content. :)

Currently halfway through Dave Mustaine - A Life in Metal
it starts off a bit slow but once you get into it, it's a fucking awesome read

Already finished the Gunslinger (yeah, I really am a bookworm... wasn't even joking XD). Now I'm reading Red Seas Under Red Skies, by Scott Lynch... It's the second in the series, and I really liked his first: 'The Lies of Locke Lamora'. It's kind of fantasy, but not obvious fantasy... And I'm no good at describing books! ^^

I've heard of that... it's supposed to be really good... someone said it was very philosophical? I haven't read it but I want to ^^

I like biographies (not autobiographies) about historical figures. I have read one about Marie-Antoinette and a couple about Dutch historical people. And I started one about Julius Ceaser but that one needed a lot of brain work, so I put it away for a while. :=D ;)

Reading various work by August Strindberg. Good stuff really.

And all that is holy, holy shall be...
Let the light bless and
let these words proclaim the blessing.
Let the seal be broken and let the light prevail

I've actually finished a disgustingly small amount of books this year. But I'm currently getting through the original Sherlock Holmes novels/short stories. :). Anyone else read them?
Loving them so far!

Well you know how the story goes, if it's too loud then you're too old.
