I'm reading 3 books right now. 2 for school and 1 for pleasure.
The two books for school is The things they carried by Tim O'Brien and The Maze Runner by Dashner.
& I'm also reading Game of Thrones whenever I'm not reading the other two books.

I'm actually re-reading the Harry Potter series because I love them and have been craving a good book lately (they seem to few and far between these days). I'm also finishing up 50 Shades of Grey, which really was a terrible book overall. I just wanted to see what the hype was all about for this one, haha.

I recently finished the Hunger Games series. Now I'm looking for my next read. Of course, that doesn't count cereal boxes, shampoo bottles--I'll read anything with words that is put in front of me! Of course, the shampoo bottles rarely have much of a plot!

I'm almost finished the 2nd book in the Fire and Ice series by George R. R. Martin. I am seriously loving this series!

Currently reading Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn for a community Book Club. I would like to find a new fantasy series to read. Any suggestions folks?

Right now I'm reading Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel. I'm only on chapter three, but I'm not enjoying it yet. Much too choppy.

I just finished "Delirium". The next in the series is called "Pandemonium", but I'm not sure whether I want to continue; it reads an awful lot like "The Hunger Games", to the point that I kept finding parallels, which kept me from really getting lost in its world the way I usually enjoy. As I am not beyond just stopping and putting a book back on the shelf if I don't like it, and in this case, I did finish the first book, it must have something going for it. Has anyone here read the next one, and if so, do you think it is worth continuing on?

Atm I'm reading "The Name of the Rose" from Umberto Ecco. I know it's old, I watched the movies a couple ages ago when I was in High School and I loved it. Took me a few years to remember I wanted to read the book, so now I'm working on it. Better late than never :P

I'm almost done with Insurgent in the Divergent series. I like this series so far. :)

This may be strange but I am currently reading the diaries of Thomas Mann (the author).
And when holidays start, I'll be picking up on my Harry Potter re-read.
