I'm rereading Brave New World (By Aldous Huxley) and realized that i like it so much more when it's not assigned reading.

Also, because of this I've started to read the Doors of Perception, also by Aldous Huxley. So far it's an interesting read.

Me - War's Heart

An epic teenage war book for adults I wrote back when I was fifteen. It's like someone novelized an action movie.

I'm ready a collection of short stories by an Australian Journalist for my Advanced Journalism class. It is called "True Stories" by Helen Garner. So far it has been an interesting read. I need to finish the book before class tomorrow as we are going through it in class. I still have over half the book to go! Eek!

I'm re-reading Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz. It's one of those books that I read back when I around 14 years old, and it's clear that's the age range it was written for. Still, it's fun to get back to.

Halo: Contact Harvest again

Damn...Staten was one of the writers for the Halo games...why are people using battle rifles against Brutes, and having people survive Harvest's destruction when no one else seems to even mention it. You think he would have based it somewhat around the original books...or even the games. Like Halo Wars, can this even be counted as Canon, seeing as how many plot errors there seem to be?

I read that about a month ago. Pretty good book.

I'm working on reading The Heroin Diaries by Nikki Sixx. Interesting read, that's for sure.

Scar Tissue by Anthony Kiedis.

Thinking about writing my first book review when I'm done but my normal style doesn't exactly work with books.

It's essentially the same with movies, except you comment on the writing instead of the acting....ish.
