Title: The Last of the Mohicans
Author: James Fenimore Cooper
Current Page: 53
Opinion so far: Even though I've read some criticisms and know it is not like the movie (which is one of my favorites), I've been wanting to read it for a long time and finally picked up a copy. The writing style takes a little getting used to-- I've read it was considered outdated even when he wrote it in 1826-- but it isn't difficult.

The Ecclesiastical History of the English People by Bede. I think that it's somewhat interesting. It seems like a lot of the same over and over again: so and so evangelized so and so, Bishop so and so died, and so and so took his place, etc. It's not bad though. the last book I finished was The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. It was for school.

I'll probably read more now since I'm on summer vacation.

Title: The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
Author: Stephen Chbosky.
Current Page: around 175.
Opinions so far: Really depressing. The whole book is set up like a diary, yet, more intimate than a diary. Charlie's letters are singular and unique, and devastating. I don't know where he lives. I'm not sure to whom he is writing. All I know is the world he shares. I love his perspective. <3

Title: The Odyssey
Author: Homer
Page Number: About 35.
Opinion thus far: It is a little boring right now. Telemachus is going around and asking people if they have seen Odysseus since the Trojan War, and it's kind of boring. But I predict that it'll get better when Odysseus becomes the focus of the story.
Last Book Finished: Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley.

Title: Before the Dawn: Recovering the Lost History of Our Ancestors
Author: Nicholas Wade
Current Page: 95
Opinion so far: VERY fascinating so far! Interesting look at humanity's obscure origins, focusing on conclusions that can be drawn from DNA analysis. Some is controversial, and I'm not sure I agree with everything so far myself, but definitely worth picking up from what I've read so far, if you are interested in the subject.

Title: The Godfather
Author: Mario Puzo
Curent page:236
Opinion so far: Much better than the movies. It really paints a picture of how the crime families operated. Although I think it jumped around a lot in the diffetent books.

Title: Life in a Medieval City
Author: Joseph and Frances Gies
Current Page: 98
Opinion so far: Picked this one up for less than a buck in a thrift store, good buy! Specifically focuses on what life was like for the people of Troyes in France in the year 1250. Very easy to get into, and though I consider myself pretty well-read on the time period, came across details already that I wasn't aware of, like how incredibly intricate some of the recipes used by more well-to-do burghers were. A little dated (a few little things here and there that I think have been contridicted by more recent research), and I can't recall a mention of the contribution of the Medieval Optimum/Medieval Warm Period to the prosperity of the High Middle Ages, which 1250 fell towards the end of (plague and climatic cooling resulted in this mini-Renaissance being squelched in the next century), but overall definitely a great read so far!

Title: The Dark Tower
Author: Stephen King
Current Page: Just completed
This is a Fantastic series, not like Kings Horror books - although it's no lightweight in that area!
If you want to get lost in a long fantasy story...start with 'The gunslinger' and just watch yourself get hooked. 7 books in all
This tale is an emotional roller coaster.
The Dark Tower reduced me to tears at times - exhausting read!

Title: The Dying Game (lovely title...)
Author: Beverly Barton
Page: 30ish
Opinion: Well, it's certainly making me want to read more, but yeah. Not too far in at the moment.
Last book finished: 'The Beach House' by James Patterson and Peter de Jonge (sp?). That was actually really good. Very entertaining.

Opinions thus far: Plot that is keeping me entertained. I usually am more into fantasy/supernatural works like King or Card, but I like realistic fiction occasionally too.

A friend gave me Twilight as a present. I was really skeptical about starting it. I mean, Romance? I started it today. Edward is an annoying romantic. But, I wouldn't really label the book as romantic. Iím around page four hundred and almost done. Any twilight person will give me a run for my life yet, I think Jacob can pwn Edward any day of the week. x_x

Reading Naruto Shippuden manga at the moment.
Latest chapter.

Most recent book I read was I Am The Cheese by Robert Cormier.
It's a really psychological one ._o I liked it though.

Title: undead and unappreciated
Author: mary-janice davidson
Current pg. number: 71/271
Opinions thus far: re-reading again. this is the third book out of a series..not too sure how many books there are now (i think 5 or 6); i only have the first four. all are very funny paranormal romances. they are short & light but i love them all the same.
Last book finished: undead and unemployed

an excerpt:
eric sinclair, king of the vampires, was back from europe the next night, i was sorry to see. it had been a relatively uneventful six weeks despite -- or because of -- the vampire king's voyage to europe. i had been careful not to ask questions, because i didn't want him to misconstrue my interest in his activities as an interest in him. on the top of my brain i figured he might be abroad to check on his holdings -- they were on the vast side. on the bottom, i just didn't want to know.

"welcome back," i said to tina, his sidekick and oldest friend. really old...like, two hundred years or whatever. "die," i told him.

"i did that already," he replied, folding the newspaper and setting it aside. "and i have no plans to do it again, not even for you, darling."

"i'll see you later, majesties." tina bowed and walked past us, out of the room.

"hi and bye," i said. "why can't you follow her example?"

"miss me?"

"not hardly." this was sort of a lie. eric sinclair, at six foot huge, was an imposing presence. it wasn't just that he was big (broad shoulders, long legs) or great-looking (black eyes, dark brown hair, succulent mouth, big hands). he was charismatic...almost mesmerizing. you looked at him, and you wondered what it would be like to feel his mouth on you in the dark. he was a sin in a suit.

Title: Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World
Author: Haruki Murakami
Pg: 92
Thoughts: Holy shit, this is definitely the weirdest of Murakami's work that I have read so far and I've read a bit. This is so fucking surreal I'm almost confused. It's fantastic.

I never finished The Mists of Avalon. It's one of those books that you read for a while until something else catches your eye. I'll eventually go back to it.
