I haven't completed yet but I am trying to work my way through Shelly's Frankenstein. I am obliged to read it as it is part of a course but I am finding it tedious. I concede that I am at fault but I am struggling.

I just finished re-read Asimov's Foundation. I've just started re-read the Second Foundation. It's a trilogy. I'm skipping the middle book because it was so bad that I didn't finish it the first time. I only read the last in the series, Second Foundation because I bought the set. That was a good thing, because the Second Foundation was even better than the Foundation and that's saying a lot.

Happy Easter All.
Nothing like a good Easter read. I'm currently reading The World Beneath by Cate Kennedy. It's about the way our anxieties,accelerated by our consumer culture get in the way of living genuine lives. 4****

I haven't spared the time to read books. The last time I read a book was ages I guess. It was "Angels and Demons" by Dan Brown. Believe me! That book is awesome! I just got lost in history. I think this is one of the best books I have read so far. I just couldn't even lose grip over that book. I finished it in 3 days I guess. And, the funny part is that I bunked studies and work for it! Now guess how interesting this book may be. A must-read!

My dad read that! He also said it was really good, however, I didn't bother reading it myself. The only book by Dan Brown that I actually read (although I didn't finish it) was the Da Vinci code. Maybe I'll have a look at this one some time.

I just finished reading The Devil and Miss Prym by Paulo Coelho and it's a good book for the soul. I'm currently reading the House of Night series since I haven't had the time to read them when I had school.

Rise of the Governor. This was after reading the entire Walking Dead comic book series. Rise of the Governor is the back story of a villain that should be showing up in the 3rd season of the show. This is an actual book, not a comic, but those were the first comics I've ever read. Now I'm turning into a comic book nerd and I'm starting the Scott Pilgrim graphic novels. Before that, I read the Hunger Games series and loved them!!

Recently I got talked into reading The Hunger Games. So far, that book it pretty good.
The last book I've actually finish though was Beyond the Shadows by Brent Weeks. Beyond the Shadows was the third book in The Night Angel Trilogy. I loved the entire trilogy as well as his writing style.

I just finished a young adults book Feed by M.T.Anderson. It was actually quite a good read. If you get a chance take a read of it.

The last thing I've read was Fail Safe by Eugene Burdick. The book was okay, it droned on for a while.

I am ashamed to admit that I just finished reading the fifty shades of grey series. It was average at best. The writing was average, the story was decent. I think the hype is because it's a book bu tit's really erotica so housewives feel like they have an excuse to read porn.

The last book that I read was The Shack by William P. Young. It's been a minute since I've sat down to read a book even though I have plenty on my list and the order that I want to read them in. I have really just been trying to get a lot of my free time back and in order, but I do want to start reading these books on my shelves.

Sometimes it takes awhile to pick up a good read. I was handed The Monsters of Templeton by Lauren Groff. It has turned out to be a page turner.

Here's a trailer of the book I found :unsure:

I'm reading a young adults fiction at the moment After Though not what I normally read, I heard a review on the radio so ordered it online from the library. It's an okay read. I'll definitely finish it.

The last book I completed was an original-language version of Sun Tzu's Military Principles (The Art of War). I'm currently reading The Odyssey, by Homer.
Today I don't need to reach your deafened ears and
I don't need to try and fill your empty heart, 'cause
All I need now is the agony I see upon your face,
That's good enough for me
In the end
