Mega Thread What book are you reading?


Recommended Posts

The Outstretched Shadow iby Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory's

So far I like the book and its sooo much more darker

and longer then anything I've read by Lackey in the past.

How dark exactly, I might give it a try.

I tried some of the books, but never finished them, then again, I'm definitely not the target audience :lol: .

I do enjoy most of the songs though.

H.P. Lovecraft, Great tales of Horror.

Just wondering what books you lovely people are currently reading? Any you recommend perhaps? And what do you think about it?   At the moment I'm reading a book called 'The God Emporer Of Didcot', i

I'm reading Eragon by Christopher Paolini. About 520 pages left to read. I've read only 3 chapters but I already think it's quite good.

Just finished "Black Company" (highly recommend it for every gritty, low magic fantasy fans), ordered the sequeland started "Shadow Puppets". It's uncanny how Mr. Card manages to suck you in after two pages... :wacko:

 

 

 

 

 

@@Silverstream,

Great, thanks to you I'm now imagining Sombra as a herald-mage who turned evil. As is Venyel had just one crappy day too many, told Renly to buck off and took over. :ph34r:

I'm gonn be n ass again and give you this advice. Stop after the first book. The second is okay, if terribly predictable, the third should have just been slashed by the editors and the fourth is just a traincrash.

Mr. Paolini has some good ideas, but his inexperience as a writer is terribly obvious.

Well I was reading Hidden Reality by Brian Green, which is a 'challenging' book to say the least. I was most of the way through it when I forgot to pack the book right before a long flight. I had the first few chapters of Fallout: Equestria on my tablet which I had downloaded a long time ago so I decided to read that on the plane instead.

 

So that's what I'm reading now. Buck Brian Green and his mind-bending science. I need to find out the future of Equestria!! (and please, guys, no spoilers! in fact, don't even reply to this unless it's about the Brian Green book! thanks!)

Fahrenheit 451. It's a pretty famous book written by Ray Bradbury. I have to read it for a school project but it is still a great read and if your into dystopian literature you should definitely give it a try.

In other words, he's kinda like me, only much much better since his stories have been published as a book.

 

What you just said makes me even more interested to read all of them now.  I am also after all completely inexperienced, enough so that even my best story (which happens to be my one and only MLP story) so far is not good enough for Equestria Daily, but seems to be... somewhat liked in FIMfiction.net as it has 0 dislikes, 25 likes and 509 views ATM. That's much more than my other 3 stories in any other site.

 

So what if the stories are not quality material? That doesn't mean they suck as heck. It all depends on whether the reader enjoys the story or not.

I just start to write a few stories for mlp  just for the enjoyment of it,  i did get

some  favs//looks which made me happy and I posted it both on fanfic.net and fim just

to spread it out.     One thing i do know is a beta/proof reader always helps out  from anything

to grammer and spelling to  plot if you ask!

 

It takes me a long time to find a beta which im still looking for. :umad:

I am reading War and Peace by Count Leo (Nikolaevich) Tolstoy. It is considered to be one of the greatest novels ever created. Reviews said that this book is "a work of art within a work of art". I do have to say, it's very long. It contains about 1500 pages and about 500 characters. This should be interesting.

Well. this thread shouldn't be dead.

 

Just finished "American Gods" by Neil Gaiman (absolutely awesome) and blazed through "Mark of Calth" (mostly awesome) out of the Horus Heresy series.

 

Also reread "Nightwatch", cuz its my favourite Discworld novel (which means a lot).

Reading "Breakfast at Tiffany's" by Truman Capote. Quite a good book. Also reading Herodotus' "The Histories" though it's going to take a while to finish that one.

Trixie is reading the Manga Trinity Blood.  So far it is better than something called Twilight.  Oh darn, trixie had to be reminded of a peculiar unicorn with this...wait Alicorn now?  Nonsense.

 

 

Anyway, when it is read Trixie will also review it on her Great and Powerful Tumblr.  Now excuse her as her writer plans to take over anew.  Such bother.

I am being forced to read "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee. I have to read the book in english class and it's an alright book. I just hate the southern style of language in the book.

About finished with the Prose Edda, moving onto The Saga of Volsungs soon, or the Poetic Edda, not sure yet. Though for sake of the character limit I will also mention that I recently got Beowulf, The Tao Te Ching, The Book Of Enoch, and The Song of Roland if I want something else.

I'm currently floating around multiple books. I'm slowly making my way through the Bible, I'm rereading Dante's Inferno, and I occasionally flip through The Art of War. Yeah, very boring books... I'm more of an encyclopedia type of person. I just recently got the first book in A Song of Fire and Ice but its just been sitting on my table.

Yay, its alive :)

Started Angel Exterminatus, also from Horus Heresy (Perturabo, Fulgrim and a crazy Iron Hand scientist, very cool).

 

 I just recently got the first book in A Song of Fire and Ice but its just been sitting on my table.

I highly recommend it. It took me some time to get invested in the characters, but its worth it.

 


Fear to Tread by James Swallow

Oh, I gotta get to that after finishing Angel Exterminatus. Is Sangi already blond in this one (he has black hair in Thousand Sons)?
