The Number Games by Adam Spencer.
Once again another great book full of mathematical facts and puzzles. Definitely worth a read.

Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes  - The local high school did it for an acting competition and now I feel the need to read it.  So far I'm liking it!

Star Wars: X-Wing Rouge Squadron by Michael A. Stackpole.
It's part of the "Legends" canon with the New Republic being mentioned, etc.
Pretty good read so far.

Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman 

So far the book is interesting and there is a difference between the movie and the book.

I've been reading A Brief History of Time by the late Stephen Hawking. My brother had a copy of the book for years and I never thought to read it until now. It's not without a few technical terms but it's actually quite easy to read and he has rather a good sense of humor as well.

Since I haven't had much time to actually read books lately I've been enjoying audio books instead!

Over the past year I've listened to the Graphic Audio versions of these books:
Mistborn Series (ongoing and currently 6 books)
Stormlight Archive Series (ongoing and currently 3 books)
Elantris
Warbreaker

These are all Brandon Sanderson works and I highly recommend if you want some new fantasy stuff to read. Also quick explanation but Graphic Audio is a company that makes audio book productions that feature full voice acting, soundeffects and soundtracks for each book. So as they say "a movie in your mind".

Outside of Graphic Audio titles, I'm currently listening to:
Wheel of Time series (finished book 1, on book 2)

Listened to/Started:
Edgedancer (a Stormlight Archive novella placed between books 2 and 3)
Oathbringer (3rd book in Stormlight Archive, no Graphic Audio version has been released yet but the audio book is still good! Didn't get too far though as I went back to Wheel of Time book 2).

I actually read Mistborn Secret History which is a short story set during the first three Mistborn books.


Annnnd yeah. Audio books have helped me catch up on some reading. ^__^

I started reading The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera. It's been a very interesting and intellectual read so far. I like how the book interprets and explains itself and its characters while telling the story. This may sound weird, but the links between interpretation and story are done so well, I can't even-- Hngghhhhh!

I've heard of Brandon Sanderson before, but I've never read his work - I am going to have to add him to my lists!

Thank You For Arguing by Jay Heinrichs, a nonfiction book about rhetoric and argument for my AP Lang class next year. The Secret Garden as well, but that's just for fun, and in the hopes that I'll finally finish it after starting it and coming so close to the end so many times. Oh, and Codename: Sailor V volume 1.

Just finished Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu, a retelling of the Snow Queen that is actually perfect and one of my favorite books ever. And now I'm reading Replica Lyra/Replica Gemma, by Lauren Oliver, which is one story told from 2 different character's perspective in an interesting format.

During my time offline I've been reading Circe by Madeline Miller. It's an excellent rendition of the original Greek mythology and the character herself and her story is very compelling. I thoroughly recommend it for anyone who likes a more traditional fantasy story with a bit of grit. If you're like me you'll empathise with Circe a great deal.

been reading a book called The Constants of Nature by John Barrow for a while now! It's an interesting little book on scientific constants, but I lost my place when I started at work.... speaking of, I've also been reading various sections from some guide to electroplating at work, though I forget the exact title...

Ready Player One. I was recommended it by a friend who thought I'd enjoy it, and I do! I love the very unique imagination from the author to create such a diverse universe.
