A Clash Of Kings in the Game Of Thrones series.

It's so amazing, everyone! :D I'm going through it pretty slowly (I'm only in the one-hundreds, when there's about a thousand pages) compared to my usual rate, but it's surprisingly nice not to finish a book in two to three days. (SPOILER) My favorite characters are probably either Daenerys, Lysa or Jon and I'm also beginning to love Yoren so much. I really hope they don't die >(

(SPOILER) However, I never really liked Ned that much anyway.

I just finished The Familiars, and it is SO awesome! It's about (SPOILER) 300 pages. Hehe, you thought i was gonna say what it was about! Silleh inferior humans! I'm not just gonna put the page number cause you'll think I put the page number, which i did, but you wouldn't have found that out if you have just left this alone, wouldn't you. >=D. MWAHAHAHA! Now you'll never found out what the book's about, unless you read it yourself! >=D

Anyway, my library still doesnt have the Son of Neptune! >=U

Reading for my course kind of killed my love of reading for pleasure. I mean, I find that type of reading fun, picking apart arguments and writing notes and preparing essays and stuff, but when you do that for six hours every day you don't really want to do another hour of reading after that. Also, having to cook/wash up/go clubbing/band practice/phone home kind of takes up all my time now. I haven't played a video game or watched TV in over a month. ;_;

That said, I'm slowly making my way through Stephen Jay Gould's Wonderful Life. It's a really lovely book about paleontology, biology and a bit of history.

I recently finished The Exiled Queen, the second book of the Seven Realms series by Cinda Williams Chima. I liked it a lot and it was a decent length, too. Would definitely recommend it to fantasy/adventure fans.

I also read Witch and Wizard by James Patterson. It was only okay.

Back to the Future Divide. Second book of a Back to the Future trilogy. It's about a boy with a rare heart condition going to a world full of mythical creatures, and there, humans are the mythical creatures. Very nice book, I must say.

I'm reading The Gray Wolf Throne by Cinda Williams Chima, and I LOVE it! I also read The Gift by James Patterson, which was only meh, and Trickster's Choice by Tamora Pierce, which I also loved.

EDIT: The Gray Wolf Throne was a grat book, but the ending was really dissapointing :(

I am reading 'The Maze Runner' by James Dashner. It's one of those books where it's really ambiguous at the start and doesn't explain a lot in the beginning. I'm only about 10 pages in, and the thing I notice the most is how instead of cursing, the characters say things like 'klunk' and 'shank'. It's because the people invented a new kind of English or something, but it's really weird hearing someone say 'You'll klunk your pants' (yes, this does happen).

Also, I find it funny how The Maze Runner is by James Dashner
