On my reading list is the following:

- "Ida B." by Katherine Hannigan
Great book, with imagination, and talented writing. I've read it before, but its only because I enjoy it so much, considering its a younger person's book.

- "Three Days" by Donna Jo Napoli
A suspenseful book, with nightmarish drama, and a secret mystery that will hook you in, as it did me.

- "The Devil's Arithmetic" by Jane Yolen
A fascinating story of a Jewish girl, who is transported back into the dreadful WWII. A book filled with incredible detail, and superb characters, I definitely recommend this amazing page-turner.

- "The Prophet" by Kahlil Gibran
A text of wisdom, and proverbs, that will make you contemplate everyday issues and emotions from a different perspective.

- "The Dogs Who Found Me" by Ken Foster
A book that makes compassion an everyday lifestyle and makes you discover what a blessing to those who encounter you. A very moving book.

- Bird Behaviour, Stephen Moss
- Designing Interactions, Bill Moggridge
- Gödel, Escher, Bach, Douglas Hofstadter
- Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler
- Die Vermessung der Welt, Daniel Kehlmann

The two I'm reading at the moment are:

The Lady Elizabeth, by Alison Weir

The Lady in the Tower: The Fall of Anne Boleyn, by Alison Weir

Am on a mission to read all her books at the moment so will most likely read her book on the Princes in the Tower after I have finished these two, have too many books to mention any other options!

I've requested Haldeman's "The Forever War". Don't have it yet.

Also waiting on part 2 of "Under the Dome." Who knew you had to make a separate request for the end of the book? *shakes fist at Ft. Bend county library*

TheBloodRed, at first I thought you were referring to "Here Be Dragons" by Sharon Kay Penman, the first book in her Welsh trilogy and one of my fave books. :p

i bought a book from a scottish charity shop about a boy and a wolf which looks really good ( the name escapes me) - it's set back when the Vikings invaded which should be interesting.

the newest inheritance book is also on my reading list - which is supposedly due out soon.

I'd like to properly read the 'duncan wood' books as my mum bought me them and after a breif flick through them they look interesting :)
She also bought me a fantasy series back when I was in hospital but i couldnt turn the pages :p

I'll start them after finishing re-reading the twilight & inheritance series xx

I really need to finish the Vampire Chronicles Series by Anne Rice; although where Im up to is about where she started to switch back to Catholicism again and I can really see it coming through in the writing - nevertheless I should continue to push on.

I also want to read the Mayfair Witches - I started one of the books, it was good, very dark, but incredibly fascinating and indulgent.

Currently Im reading a book called "Fire" by Kristin Cashore - Im not sure if Im liking it yet; its alittle shallow. And Ive bought Atlantis Code (I mean, comeon, could I honestly ever resist a title like that?) by Charles Brokaw; but I haven't begun reading it yet :)

So many well thought choices! I definitely will check some of you all's. :)
Those who have 1984 on their list, you will enjoy every page.

Animal Farm by George Orwell is great as well.

I'm reading both Mermaid Saga (which I doubt is actually qualified as proper reading, since it's manga lol) and a lovely Egyptian History book. Not too much stuff atm as you can see. But I'm having lots of free time, so I'm planning to modify my reading habits eventually! :)

Dracula(Abraham Stoker)
An amazing book,very smart and intrigant.It does have a lot of sense of humor,wich isn't reflected at all when you think about Dracula.

Frankenstein(Mary Shelley)
A cold story about humanity,it makes you think about who are the real monsters.

Edgar Allan Poe
Marvelous,marvelous,oh marvelous writer.What more can I say?...Annabel Lee it's a magnificient piece of art.

The Sanctuary/Interview with a Vampire/Vittorio the vampire/Blood and Gold/Lestat the vampire/(Anne Rice)
She started well but then becomes really repetitive.The Sanctuary is marvelous,so nice and fun to read.Lestat the vampire,the best character on vampire history,is IMO the worst book of all I've read...boring,too long without necesity and a bunch of things really unnecesary.

Tales of the Jungle(Horacio Quiroga)
A few stories about animals that reflects the human feelings and emotions.There's one particulary beauty and sad,wich is called "The Swan's singing"

I have read a lot more,but those are my favourites.
