I'm on the last chapter of The Lord of the Rings. Once I finish it I'm going to move on to either finishing the Predator Cites series or read The Name of the Wind. Predator Cities is a post-apocalyptic scenario where cities move on massive devices (whether by air, sea, or land), and to survive they basically need cannibalize other cities. I only read the first chapter of The Name of the Wind while at a bookstore, but I really liked the theme and tone of the story. It seemed very dark and adventurous.
I just finished Yahtzee Croshaw's Jam and volz 1 of the the graphic novel Saga (can't remember who wrote and drew it), and I'm currently reading The Simpsons And Philosophy and Ayn Rand's Atlus Shrugged.
I just finished reading Three Times Lucky, Chasing Vermeer, Theodore Boone: The Abduction, and Tangerine. I have read all of the Heroes of Olympus, Kane Chronichles, and Percy Jackson. I have read hundreds of other books too.
I finished Life of Pi a few weeks ago for school. It was fairly overrated, in my opinion, but it wasn't terrible. Right now I'm reading Star Wars: The Last Jedi for entertainment. Not the most glamorous of titles, I know, but it's pretty good.
I currently re-read "The Conquering Family", book one of Thomas B.Costain's "A History of the Plantegenets", the ruling family of England from soon after the Conquest up until the death of Richard III. I bought the books back in 1978 and have read them a number of times since. This will be my fifth reading. As you might guess I quite enjoy the series.
Just prior to that I re-read David Gemmell's three volume "Troy Saga", consisting of "Lord of the Silver Bow", "Shield of Thunder", and "Fall of Kings". It was my second reading. I'm a huge fan of anything relating to the Trojan War and its era. (I need to re-watch Michael Wood's "In Search of the Trojan War" yet again soon. I liked to well enough to make it one of my first DVD purchases and view it several times a year.)
I started Veronica Roth's Divergent yesterday. Finished it an hour ago. I didn't know it was a trilogy and now I'm slightly ticked off due to the fact that it was a great book with a cliffhanger ending.
Sometime after supper last night I finished the book mentioned in post #22 and have moved on to volume two, "The Magnificent Century".
I'm almost done with A Dance with Dragons. I have no idea what I'm going to do while I wait for the next book.
Yeah, that's a problem with "A Song of Ice and Fire". The novels come out infrequently, spaced far apart, and are of such quality that almost anything else in the genre is a bit of a letdown. How does one follow them up? Me, I pretty much have to break from reading for some days until I get "Ice and Fire" out of my system. Same thing happened upon finishing "A Memory of Light" (concluding volume of "The Wheel of Time") early this year.
I'm currently half way through The Mark of Athena, and I'm planning on either moving on to Harry Potter or The Sun Trail next while I wait for The House of Hades to come out.
I just finished The Mark of Athena! The book was great, I have all three in The Heroes of Olympus in hardcover. I am getting The House of Hades for my birthday on veteran's day if it is out yet. I reccomend starting The Kane Chronicles series also by Rick Riordan. I suggest trying out the Chasing Vermeer series or maybe The Shadow Children or just about any other book by Margaret Peterson Haddix. I do like to read!
