HAHA I GOT ECLIPSE TODAY!

But I'm not reading it.

At the moment, I have about two more pages left of Of Mice and Men, which I'm reading for school.

And my other school book is called archy and mehitabel (yes, in lowercase). It's a collection of poems that was a newspaper column in the 1910s and 20s. All of the letters are lowercase because the thing that is writing them is Archy the cockroach and he's too small to make the capital letters on the typewriter

It's actually a really cute and funny book. I highly recommend

Ha well this weekend was quite a fun one, reading-wise.

I read Absolutely, Positively Not by David LaRochelle. This book is hilarious and fun, starting off with this boy insisting he is not gay...he just likes square dancing as a favor to his mom...etc. Of course he ends up coming out because he is so completely, obviously gay and this is apparent from the first chapter lol...it was just a lot of fun.

Then I reread Teen Idol, because reading Meg Cabot's stuff is always a good time.

Then I read Freak Show by James St. James which was another book about a teen, Billy Bloom, who is gay...or bi...or something. I never got that part straight, because apparently Billy doesn't like labels...this book is overwhelming and sweeps you away. At first I thought he was slightly overdoing the exclamation points...but ah well, it adds to the character of Billy. At times I marveled how what seemed to be a string of endless nonsense ended up turning into a story. Kinda like the Georgia Nicholson books...but that's different...

An excerpt:

Quote :
You have moved into the light, and your healing has begun.
So this is it.
The BIG BOOM!
REBIRTH!
A LIGHT SHINES DOWN!
THERE IT IS!
LOOK UPON THE GLORY!
GAZE UPON MY SUPERNATURAL BEAUTY!
REJOICE! THROW FLOWERS!
LET THE RAPTURE BEGIN!
GIZZLE-GAZZLE! DIZZLE-DAZZLE!
BOW DOWN!
FOR I AM SUPERFREAK!
BOOM! KER-PLOW!
(And the world sings of salvation.)


Another excerpt:

Quote :
I am Superfreak.
Defender of girly-boys, scourge of flat-faced homophobes everywhere.
Wrapped in the purple cloak of midnight.
I come and go undetected.
My every move whisper quick!
A wig on the wind!
I move about free from glaring eyes. Hidden in shadows. Covered in darkness.
A creature of the night. Prowling. Growling. Ready to pounce. WATCH OUT!

Well, yeah. That's Billy, in a nutshell. XD

I'm currently reading "The History of Love", by Nicole ... something... XD

It's pretty nice - as far as I've got now (chappie 3 XD), it's told either by an old writer-guy or a 14 years old girl or a 3rd person narrator. My fave was the part told by the girl... the old guy is a bit weird, me thinks... XD ... oh well, I'll have to read it all to.. understand, hehe :D

I'm reading Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. Somebody please tell me why I'm doing that to myself. I wonder whether I would have more of a chance at understanding it if English were my first language, because no, I'm not reading the German translation, but the original English thing with all that cruel stuff that Joseph is saying...

At the moment I am concentrating my reading time on The Golden Compass, book 1 of His Dark Materials. I saw the preview for the movie when I went to see Order of the Phoenix and it looked awesome. The book is really well written, and I really think that I will continue with this series.

I read A Certain Slant of Light by Laura Whitcomb which gave a WHOLE new meaning to the word 'soulmate'...lol. It was really good, but I kinda got the feeling that the author could do even better. At times it was almost like poetry...I will definitely read her next book, cuz I'm sure it'll be even more fantastic.

I also reread Shopaholic and Sister by Sophie Kinsella. Because I like to laugh. ^^

Ooh Kate you should definitely continue with that series, it's excellent!

I am currently reading Eclipse! It finally arrived!

And over my holiday I read...

Summers of the Sisterhood: Forever in Blue by Ann Brashares - I really enjoyed this, though found Carmen's story boring compared to the rest.

Queen of Babble by Meg Cabot - Hehe, I liked this one, very funny.

Gossip Girl 1 & 2 - Well, I got addicted by these. They're like a soap opera in book form.

Nobody's Girl by Kitty Neale - This was pretty good, set in 1950's England. The back described it as "misery lit" :D

The Other Side of the Bridge by Mary Lawson - This was beautifully written, you could almost imagine you were there. Really well-woven story, I very much enjoyed this book.

The House at Riverton by Kate Morton - Wow, this one was amazing. The best I read on holiday, and I would definitely recommend. It's set in the 1920's and 1999, telling the story of two sisters: Hannah and Emmeline, from the perspective of their maid Grace. Fantastic story, and I was sad to reach the end.

Then I read half a Doctor Who book cos I'd run out of others :D

Just read Love and Other Four-Letter Words by Carolyn Mackler, which was pretty good, Crunch Time by Mariah Fredericks which was...interesting, though I was having a hard time sympathizing with the characters...oh and Sink or Swim by Kate Cann, which was SUPPOSED to be lighthearted chick lit, and ended up being torturous-still-in-love-with-ex chick lit. Gah.

The Center of the World by Andreas Steinhofel, which was excellent and very well-written but WAY messed up. Seriously, the things that the main character went through...and he seemed to consider them all quite normal...*shakes head*

And I'm in middle of reading I Never Promised You a Rose Garden by Joanne Greenberg. Very confusing at times but always intelligent, I think it captures the mental illness of the main character very well, although I can't seem to read it all at once and I keep putting it down and then going back to it.
