I've seen the movie, very good, slow, but good. The books is great so far though, that's the full thing I linked right there.

Started reading "The Strain" by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan for the second time. After that, I plan on checking out the sequel, "The Fall", from a library near one of the stores I work at.

I have to say, the creatures are an interesting mix between zombies and vampires.

^ Enjoyed the first two books and waiting on the third. Nothing like violence and an exterminator to make books more fun. Been a while since I read it though.

Started Star Wars: Tales From Jabba's Palace as I loved Death Star, where it goes into characters behind the scenes who inhabit famous places; the everyday Joe. Only into the first story (The Rancor Keeper) and I'm hooked.

I bought the Strain from my library for like a dollar, is it any good? I haven't had time to check it out yet.

I like it. I think it should be made into a movie, as Guillermo del Toro is a film director who directed Pan's Labyrinth. That would be awesome. Oh, and I see it was on the New York's Best-Selling list too.

I'm still reading through The Night's Dawn trilogy. Peter F. Hamilton writes amazing science fiction, he has another series called the Void, which I intend to read after I finish The Night's Dawn.

I read this earlier.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Go_the_Fuck_to_Sleep

Its a gift for my cousin who just had a baby.

Edit:
Reading that wiki i just found out this:
"The audiobook company Audible.com has published an audiobook version of Go the Fuck to Sleep, narrated by Samuel L. Jackson."

Finished Tales from Jabba's Palace and onto Tales of the Empire, edited by Peter Schweighofer with stories from the Star Wars Adventure Journal.

Good ol' Timothy Zahn, bringing Talon Karrde into the mix right off the bat. Easily one of the best authors in the Star Wars EU, and have his Choices of One (Pretty sure that's what it's called) on hand to read afterward.

Been crushing through the Song of Ice and Fire series (Game of Thrones) and crushed the 4th book reasonably quickly and moved onto the 5th and newest edition to the series. Pretty good so far! After that I've got Battle Royal and a bunch of other books to read, but I want to find out my school syllabus so I can start reading those early.

Go for Battle Royale! Nothing says violence like opening a lemon.

Edit: Choices of One by Timothy Zahn. Since it's by Zahn, it's a great read without even finishing it.

Joker written by Brian Azzarello and illustrated by Lee Bermejo. This was great. Life of Joker from point of view of one of the henchmen.

Got a Kindle recently and loaded it up with books. 96% of the way through The Pact by Jodi Picoult (one of my favorite authors), then I'll be reading The Hunger Games, which was lent to me by a friend.

Will you be reading Battle Royale before or after it?
But it was some good fun, just not as delightfully depressing as BR.

Fluke Laboratories: EVOLVE TODAY!

Having to crib from my notes on Twitter for this list.

Started "Brothers" by Ben Bova (still getting going).

"Antarctica" by Kim Stanley Robinson: read this. technically not SF but brilliant.

"Atlantis" by David Gibbins: DO NOT THINK "DA VINCI CODE"! This bloke IS an archaeologist, knows his stuff, and has put together a plausible theory about Plato's morality tale and how Solon The Lawmaker may have got two histories confused. Yes it's fiction but thought provoking fiction. With big guns.

"Iron Dragons" by Rose Mendes. Bizarre table top game tie in from years back. Meh.

"Portent" by James Herbert: Not his best, which, if you've read his work, is a fair warning.

"Titan" by Stephen Baxter: Hard SF of the hardest kind. And big. Really big. You may think that space is big but that's just peanuts compared to... Oops. Wrong ref.

Um... "The Satanic Bible" and "The Satanic Rituals" by Anton thingummy (founder of Church of Satan) a while back.

"Necronomicon" (the version published in the 1970s).

"The Worst Case Survival Handbook" (the friend who gave me this lot has tastes more eclectic even than me). Actually quite interesting.

"Against A Dark Background" by I. M. Banks: Brilliant but be warned- it's even bleaker than his usual stuff.

Think that goes back to as far as when said friend dumped The Library of Alexandria on me...

*ADDENDUM*
Also "A Game Of Universe" by... um... Look, it was brilliant. Think Graal Quest crossed with Space opera narrated by a wizard who eats people's souls and works for a galactic corporation of professional assassins and has a year to find the Graal or he goes to Hell, and has to do it before the other 12 or so professionals beat him to it and they save themselves and become fabulously rich instead of him. If you can find a copy you'll enjoy it.
