Julia Gillards autobiography - it's a big read and is very dry and matter of fact so I think this one's going to take me some time. Doesn't help that I don't know who or what most of the people she mentions are because they're all Australian political figures. A case of perseverance and making myself read this one.

Finished 2001, now I have to return to the beautiful mess of a book that is Only Revolutions. Have a few days off from school so I'm think of rereading House of Leaves to prepare my brain, hehe.

I hope you guys still like it! The first book was alright, but if you don't enjoy it, it doesn't improve xP

I'm really enjoying it so far! I'm just over 100 pages in now and have just left off with Thomas stepping out of the Glades and into the Maze to help Minho and Alby.

Just finished "The Mist" by Stephen King. He did a great job with it, but not the very best book I ever read

I've recently bought The Maze Runner despite reading Mouldy Cheese 's post beforehand. I'll see what I think about it and maybe delve into the rest in the series. I also bought a new Wilbur Smith book. I really shouldn't be buying more books. I have enough to read as it is. xD

I'm still working my way through Band of Brothers by Stephen Ambrose. I've just hit the 2 week + mark with reading it so I really want to get finished asap. It's been a really interesting read though and it's been amazing to follow the experiences of soldiers within Easy company whilst fighting in France, Africa and Germany.

Just finished the Maze Runner trilogy. Yes. All of them.

And it was an entirely big piece of klunk.
Haha, well that's comforting, because I'm currently reading The Maze Runner. :P

I read it before when it first came out and liked it, but never went on to the following books for whatever reason. I just recently watched The Maze Runner in the theater so I decided to give the series another shot. I'm almost finished and about to move onto The Scorch Trials.

And it was an entirely big piece of klunk.

The first book was okay! It was an interesting concept with good characterisation and a fun pace. The second book was alright, although completely lost itself towards the end. There was a whole betrayal thing set up that you knew was coming and then when it did it seemed totally pointless and illogical. And then we got a whole lot of ZERO as an explanation for why it "had" to happen?

Don't get me started on the last book. It was just plain boring. The only reason I read it was because I mistakenly believed it might make up for the previous two with some awesome explanation. Nope. Not even close.

It was as if the author had a whole bunch of "awesome" ideas he kept coming up with and wanted to put in there. Problem being that he had no way of tying them all together and half of them ended up abandoned and unexplained in the process. The ending felt like such a cop-out and a gratuitous use of deus ex machina.

Ugh.

I'm reading The Sea of Trolls by Nancy Farmer. I've read it about 13 times before, so I guess it's pretty good...It's set in A.D. 793. It's about a boy who is apprenticed to the village Bard, and one day the boy and his sister get captured by berzerkers. It sounds crappy, but.. (*.*)...it's really good.
