Legend by Marie Lu. Perfect for those who loves reading YA dystopian books.

If anyone is interested in fantasy books i would recommend the Malazan Book of the Fallen series by Steven Erikson. There are 10 books in the series and they are a wonderful example of world and character building

The 5th wave is really good. I like the story and the characters and the plot! I hope the next book will be released sooner.

Just read the school for good and evil. Its a children's book so there is no bad ending but I still think its good.

Well considering I really am not a reader. As some know. I have actually just finished reading Lord of the Rings. Got to admit, I really enjoyed it. No idea what to read next though

If you want suggestions, let us know.

Oddly enough, picked up an old favourite, Tad Williams' - War of the Flowers, on Kindle. Been ages since I read this. I am considering it to be a warm up before Peter F Hamilton's book signing on Thursday

Back in the UK in time for a PFH signing? Well played sir.

I'm currently working through Terry Pratchett's nonfiction collection 'A Slip of the Keyboard.' I've known him by reputation since forever and I have a few of his Discworld books plus one of his YA novels at home, but I didn't know much about his background and career overall. This particular book is fascinating as well as hilarious - Sir Terry really is one of the sharpest writers around, and given the problems he's had with his health in recent years I guess we should savour each new Pratchett as if it's his last...because none of us know if it will indeed be his last.

One interesting little detail in this one though: he owns ten of his trademark hats, which are apparently Louisianas (or an Akubra, for use during visits to Australia), and are not quite the same as a standard fedora. There's a four-page chapter dedicated to them.

I'm currently reading TP's latest Discworld novel, Raising Steam...about the only author I make time to read these days (I've read every Discworld book over the last three decades).

I just finished reading '1984' by George Orwell as a part of my A level studies, despite that it was pretty hard to get through for me, I enjoyed it, though I have no doubt that if I didnt have my tutor teaching me all the contextual stuff I wouldnt have enjoyed it as much...
Otherwise though I just started 'Looking For Alaska' by John Green. I loooooved 'The Fault in Our Stars' so Im looking forward to this, along with 'Paper Towns'. Anyone else read these? Im curious as to what Miles is counting down to.. "One Hundred and Nine Days Before" hmmmmmm

I'm in the middle of "The Man in the Rubber suit" by Robert Llewellyn, which is proving to be quite entertaining. Before that I read the Jobs autobiography, and am now looking forward to some of the unofficial Apple books so I can fill in the blanks

Sugar Dark. It's a Light Novel but I still very much enjoyed it. Here's a link to the PDF/ePub if anyone is interested https://sugardarkthetranslation.word...1/pdf-version/ .

I just read Anne Frank's "The Diary of a Young Girl"

It was both cute and depressing, but I didn't shed a tear. Which says a lot, I cry at sad stories
