• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

What are you reading? II

I got The Alloy of Law by Brandon Sanderson from the library :D The Mistborn series finished a lot better than I expected so let's see the sort of sequel? The cover looks steampunky yes good

Tragically unbeyachted.
Finally, finally, after so very much persuading, I've started the behemoth that is Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrel.

(Mhals assures me it's the best thing ever, and despite being the size of a small European country, not difficult to read. Although it's worth mentioning she's currently reading LotR and finding it a well-paced romp.)

I will second her on both these points, and I found LotR impossible to get through.

I'm just about to start One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez, then I'm going to try and eat Life of Pi and The Great Gatsby, and re-eat The Hobbit, before I watch their respective movies.
Only half-way through it, but I just wanted to say that One Hundred Years of Solitude is amaaaaaaaaaaaaaazing.

Talking about magical realism, I finally finished The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake, Aimee Bender, via my habit for buying books on Amazon based solely on how interesting I find the titles. It wasn't as good as I thought it was going to be, but it was entertaining enough! Lots of people hated the ending though. Which is silly, because it's only about as silly as the rest of the book.

I have been reading loads of Yasunari Kawabata lately. To wit: The Master of Go, Thousand Cranes, and The Sound of the Mountain. They're all excellent, especially the first.

I just finished the books Wintergirls and Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. They are now my two favorite books! I'm currently searching for a bookstore that owns Twisted by Laurie Halse Anderson :)
