Last night I finished reading The Cuckoo's Calling by "Robert Galbraith" (J. K. Rowling). I absolutely loved it! It's very un-Harry Potter, so I definitely don't recommend it if you are only reading it for the author. I've read The Casual Vacancy a few times now, and I seem to be the only person who really loved it Haha oh well!
Next I think I'm going to read Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray.Jemima

Right now I'm reading a few books, the most recent being The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly. I was home last weekend and I was looking through my bookshelf for something to bring back to school with me. I found a book that I had apparently gotten for my birthday in 2006 (someone wrote a nice little message for me on the inside). I guess I never got around to reading it. When I was reading it last night, I found a receipt I had used as a bookmark dated from 2007. :P It's pretty interesting so far... I'm only about 20 pages in, but it seems like it'll be a pretty quick read. I like the author's style. He's very descriptive. Great writing.
I'm also reading The Particle at the End of the Universe by Sean Carroll. It's about the Higgs boson particle. Oh, ya know, just some casual light reading.

I'm currently reading:
Sophie's Choice - more explicit than I expected but the writing is pretty good. Finally got to the interesting part and past all the yammering about the writer.
Foundation (Asimov) - creative idea but more political than I find appealing. Also, the major "hook" of psychohistory I find rather weak and unsupportable. Good writing and a good concept though.
Anne's House of Dreams - happy fluffy reading.Top Names: Benedict Calvin & Noelle Geneva

Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.
