1. The Fellowship of the Ring - J.R.R. Tolkien
2. On Canaan's Side - Sebastian Berry
3. The Witches - Roald Dahl
4. Room - Emma Donoghue


Not sure what to read next! I think either The Curious Case of the Dog in the Night Time or The Orphan Master's Son.

Woow some of you guys are really devouring books, now i feel lame posting my list. Anyway... I finished my first book

1. "On The Road" by Jeack kerouac
I absolutely love it, specially in the beginning, although it got me a little bit bored in the middle of the book because it was more of the same trips and going from city to city, meeting new people and the same parties. But despite of that i really like it, i think it educated me a lot about the "Beat generation", and step out of the cliché vision that i had, i even started downloading some jazz music during the reading like George Shearing and other cultural tastes of the characters to get into the book a little bit more. It was really inspiring and it encourages me to travel more, probably not doing autostop btw


Now reading:
2. "Compassion" by OSHO

01. Jon Krakauer - Under the banner of heaven
02. Sharon M. Draper - Tears of a tiger
03. David Benioff - City of thieves
04. Isaac Marion - Warm bodies
05. George R. R. Martin - A feast for crows (ASOIAF #4)
06. Robert Schneider - Schlafes Bruder
07. Neil Gaiman - American Gods
08. Max Brooks - The zombie survival guide
09. Orson Scott Card - Ender's game
10. Ann Rule - The stranger beside me
11. Patrick Ness - The knife of never letting go

decided to list all the books i'm currently reading (i know it's a lot...i can never only read one book at a time)

Warm bodies:
Zombie "R" goes hunting, falls in love with a living girl and together they want to change the world (over simplified)
it sounds stupid and crazy, but it was actually pretty good. the writing was nice and was deeper than i had expected. i liked that the romance wasn't cheesy and the main focus of the story, although it was so essential to the plot, the way they fell in love felt very natural.

if you're interested in the book, watch the trailer, i usually hate book trailers, but this one is pretty good

My list is by no means impressive, but so far I've managed to read :
1. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - Stieg Larsson
2. Cat's Cradle - Kurt Vonnegut
3. The Road - Cormac McCarthy


Currently, I'm reading:
4. The Paris Wife - Paula McLain
5. Pygmy - Chuck Palahniuk


Though, I've got the feeling I probably won't finish Pygmy. I used to like Palahniuk, I still love his style, but it seems to me that he's getting more and more ridiculous when it comes to the plot .

I had the same feeling when I read Pygmy, it's really a bit ridiculous. And the protagonist's "language" is so tiring to read! It took me forever to finish it...

01 > Das böse Mädchen (engl: The Bad Girl, orig: Travesuras de la Niña Mala) < Mario Vargas Llosa
02 > The Crossing < Cormac McCarthy
03 > Schachnovelle (engl: Chess Story / The Royal Game) < Stefan Zweig
04 > Op. non cit. < Alan Isler
05 > Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close < Jonathan Safran Foer

I'm reading "Extremely loud,..." for the second time, it's been a few years and seeing the movie trailer really made me want to read it again.

Personally it's my favorite book! but I guess someone older than 25 wouldn't enjoy that much...
