Hater by David Moody.

Never heard of it before, but when the book store didn't have my next Malazan book, I made an impulse buy off the 'Staff Picks' wall. It's pretty meh so far. Reminds me a lot of M. Night Shyamalan's The Happening, only with assaults/murders rather than suicides.

Not all the way through it yet, but if it turns out to be the plants I'll be upset.

I am on the last book of The Dark Tower series. Hands down the best books I have ever read and probably ever will read.

While waiting for Palahniuk's Damned to come out, I'm again looking for random authors to try and keep me sated. Hater just didn't do it for me, so I went and picked up Enter Player One by Ernest Cline and I have to say.. it is satisfying every bit of nerd in me. Definitely worth checking out.

I also picked up Dust of Dreams by Steven Erikson but I know I'll prolong it for as long as possible, being the second to last Malazan book.

On a side note, has anyone read anything by Max Berry? I read the synopsis and sample of his book Machine Man and I think it may be up my alley.

Mortality Bridge by Steven Boyett. Dante, Greek Mythology and Faust all mixed into a good read.

Halfway through A Dance with Dragons. It's hard trying to power through novels during the school semesters. I want to just be a freeloading hobo who gets paid to read.

Enders game if you haven't read it. Great book but the others in the series are lacking and have highly religious overtones.

Yeah I felt the same way. The main reason I wanted to get through it was because I had other books on my to-do list that I wanted to read. But I found myself pretty solidly sucked into the universe that King created there. Really interesting. I liked the ending, too.

And because of what everyone's been saying, I think I'll take up Ender's Game when I finish A Dance with Dragons, which should be a couple days.

I actually read GRRM's Dying of the Light yesterday instead of Ender's Game. I thought it was really well done. I don't fully understand the significance of the ending, but I really enjoy how the book was done.

Started Ender's Game this morning, a little over 50 pages deep. Very cool. I'll finish it some time this week between work and helping people move.

Enjoyed Ender's Game thoroughly. Very cool book. Most people think it's the best in the series, but I'm gonna give the second book a shot. I might read Tolkein's Children of Hurin or King's Under The Dome first, though, since I already have them in the mail.
