^And I thought the book I was reading was strange.

Just finished Watch Your Mouth by Daniel Handler. :shock: This is not Lemony Snicket, here. Well, it is, but you know what I mean. The writing style is fantastic and made me laugh out loud, even though the book is horribly, and delightfully disturbing. It's got opera, incest, Jewish mythology, horrible mail service, lots of sex, day camp, death, stock characters, and a twelve step program to get over the first half of the book. But I don't think the wierdness factor can come close to a detective novel about G.W. Bush's nutsack.

I love "Of Mice and Men" by John Steinbeck. I could probably read that over and over again.

I love reading, so I tend to love every book I read (except The Chocolate War :evil: )

Right now I am reading "White Oleander" by Janet Fitch because I just love it.

I'm 4 pages from finishing 'Republican Like Me' by Harmon Leon (I think that's his name). It's a reeeeaaallly funny expose of some extreme right-wing groups; he goes undercover as, in an homage to 'Black Like Me', a Republican. Funny, funny stuff.

Also finished Alice Sebold's memoir 'Lucky' a few days ago. It was fantastic, just a great book. Sad, but uplifting.

Speaking of sad, 'Of Mice and Men' made me bawl like a little baby. Really well written, but so sad.

I'm reading Exile by RA Salvatore!

Next I'm reading one of these:
Floating Dragon by Peter Straub
Darkness Falls by CS Friedman
The Dark Half by Stephen King
'Salem's Lot by Stephen King
The Two Towers by JRR Tolkien

Hopefully I can read all of those sooner than later :P

*The Phantom of the Opera (yup it's actually a book long before a musical)
*Great Expectations
*Les Miserables (pretty depressing)
*Frankenstein
*Tess of D'urbervilles
*Orlando
*Moll Flanders

The last books I read because I actually wanted to:

*The Notebook
*the latest Harry Potter book
*Timeline
Scarlett: Rhett, Rhett... Rhett, if you go, where shall I go? What shall I do?
Rhett Butler: Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.

Is that any good? I've seen it in the bookstore and I've always wanted to read it.

House of Mirth (from what I've read) is really good and it's full of scandelous stuff.

Madame Bovary is freakin' awesome.

Hedda Gabler is okay. I had to read it for my World Lit. class.

I haven't actually read it yet. My professor put it up as out "to read" list for next semester. I read a synopsis and it doesn't sound too bad.

I have read Madame Bovary which I liked.


Ohh another book I forgot, "House of the Spirits" by Isabel Allende
Scarlett: Rhett, Rhett... Rhett, if you go, where shall I go? What shall I do?
Rhett Butler: Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.

Pet Semetary by Stephen King. When I first watched the movie, I almost cried at the part when the little boy gets hit by the truck. :(
