Reading Stolen Lives was a heart-wrecking experience.

What kind of light reading? Do yo like vampire books, because Blue Bloods was a cool light reading, it's only 150 pages or some Nora Roberts book if you like romance, perhaps.

thanks for the suggestions
but atm i'm totally over vampire books (currently reading the last book of the vampire academy series and i just don't get into it at all)...romance has never really been my genre, but maybe it would be a nice change

The Hunger Games:
Ok, I've now read the first two books of the Hunger Games trilogy in about a week and I'm about to start the third, but only because I've already bought it and not because I like it that much. Because I honestly don't. First and foremost the writing is really bad. It's so one dimensional and unimaginative (the sentences, not the story). I also wish she would have described everything in more detail, I had a hard time imagining the setting and happenings sometimes because she races through the most important events in just a few sentences.
There were other things bothering me but that would take too long to explain. I guess the story is kinda exciting and you want to know how it all pans out but I don't really see how people can be so overwhelmed by this. But maybe you'd have to be a pubescent teenager with low literary expectations to get the appeal (I don't mean to offend anyone- to each their own)

16. God is not Great by Christopher Hitchens [*]
17. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

I finally bought something that looks like fun. *relief* :p

God is not Great was really difficult to finish. I was bored for the most part of it, it feels like a publicity book to convert believers into atheists.
The big problem with it is that it is just the opposite extreme of religious intolerance, stereotyping and portraying religious people as fanatical,
more naive and little-minded. There is even a part of it when he claims that atheists are statistically more inteligent and better people.
This is disgusting for me.

1: The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen
2: Bossypants by Tina Fey
3: Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand
4: Tomorrow in the Battle Think on Me by Javier Marias
5: Cat's Eye by Margaret Atwood
6: The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
7: The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss

Slowly chiseling away! Moving on to the second book of Patrick Rothfuss's Kingkiller Chronicle trilogy... I have mixed feelings because I'm sure it will be years before he completes the third book, so I'll just have to reread both of these mammoth works again (the first book was nearly 700 pages, and the one I'm starting now is close to 1000), but oh well. They're not particularly difficult, just long.

Looking forward to seeing what happens next at any rate.
