    If ya'll like fantasy then I highly recommend The First Law trilogy by Joe Abercrombie. I just finished the second book and it's fantastic.

    Yep, I am a big fan of Joe Abercrombie. I personally feel like "The Heroes" is his best book yet.

    Bloody-nine is up there with my favorite fantasy characters ever.

    Read a couple lately....

    Bind, Torture, Kill about the BTK killer. It was very, very good. A real page turner. One of the better true crime books I've ever read.

    Into the Wild. I imagine most are familiar with the story/book/movie. It was interesting but, despite only being about 200 pages, still felt like it had too much filler.

    Graphic Novel but it's so good I figured I'd post here. Maus. Been meaning to read it for several years and finally got around to it. Wow. Beautiful, sad, and surprisingly funny at times. Easy, quick read and well worth checking out for anyone who hasn't already.

    Well I finally committed and decided to read Stephen King's It. All 1,100+ pages. This is gonna take awhile. I hope it lives up to all the hype.

    Currently rereading Jurassic Park. It's my favourite book of all time.

    I recently read a book called Vicious which is a book about 2 friends who work out how to get super powers and then betray each other. Quite a good book.

    i read Ready Player One and then went to see the movie....

    book was okay, generic ending but it was ight.

    the movie is NOTHING like the book... i cant stress how not similar they are. they use the same names and the contest concept and thats about it.
