I asked my mother and step-dad for book recommendations yesterday, and my mother told me to read Good Night, Mr. Tom, and my step-dad told me to read Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry. I finished both of them today, and Roll of Thunder was one of the worst books I've ever read, and Good Night, Mr. Tom was a good book, but it isn't my favorite. Both of them were REALLY easy reads, as if they were meant for a sixth or seventh grader :P

I have started Agamemnon, partly because I thought it would be handy for University Challenge and partly because I quite like Aeschylus. (Only later did it occur to me that, having a classicist on our team, reading Greek plays was perhaps not the most efficient use of my time.)

Hurr durr, I went to the library and got Mockingjay (Hunger Games thing) only to realize that it was the third one, not the second book in the trilogy, blah...

Also I really want to re-read 1984! But I'm too lazy.

I just finished reading The Cat Who Sang For the Birds. It's a children's book, but really good for a children's book. It actually is pretty interesting, I liked it a lot. It's kinda like how so many teens read Warriors, but I don't really like Warriors anymore. I'm not really sure why I read this book.

The entire Ender Series. Well, I REread the Ender Quartet (plus Ender in Exile!), but this is my first time reading the Shadow Series (Bean Quartet). I just finished Shadow Puppets earlier today. I'll start on Shadow of the Giant later.

And after I finish with that, I want to reread the Eragon series. (Well, Inheritance I'll be reading for the first time).

And after that, I want to reread the Percy Jackson series.

Someone I know is going to let me borrow The Faults in Our Stars by John Green sometime soon! But until she gives it to me, I am re-reading Delores Claiborne by Stephen King.

Ugh. Percy Jackson. I hate the series because it's too slang, but I feel bad because my grandma bought me one for my birthday and I keep feeling guilty, but she bought Mark of Athena, so I have to read all of the previous books before I read that one.

Also Castle Roogna by Piers Anthony.

I just finished To Kill a Mockingbird. I don't know why I didn't read it much sooner. It was one of the most beautiful novels I've read in years.

I LOVE that book! I read it when I was in like seventh grade for the first time, and I have re-read it 6 times since then!

And recently finished An Abundance of Katherines by John Green, and it is one of my favorites!!! And I am almost done with Hearts in Atlantis by Stephen King, and it is super duper good!
