    I'm actually about to finish We Can Build You by Philip K. Dick.

    And I'm on part three of Fyodor Dostoevsky's The Idiot.

    hi i heard that dostoyevsky novel is really lovely and i'm excited to read it once i finish the brothers karamazov.

    currently reading:
    pale fire by vladimir nabokov - oh boy now this is a novel. it's a novel about a poem written by a poet for which commentary is provided by an adoring critic, a prince from a foreign land. most of its allure lies in the ingenious self-referential style that nabokov applies in the novel, but the poem also holds a lot of merit autonomous from the rest of the book -- it's replete with literary devices and it's nice to look back on it intermittently. i'm currently a bit more than a third of the way through with this novel. this is a very early example of "meta-fiction", and i'm getting the feeling that it's one of those novels that you have to read several times to actually understand.

    coriolanus by shakespeare - got this from an old bookstore on a trip to canada for a festival. i don't really have much to say, especially considering that i've only read up to the first scene. i got this play as per the recommendation of a smogoner, and i'm definitely looking forward to reading it and (hopefully) seeing a fairly good company perform it one day.

    the brothers karamazov by fyodor dostoyevsky - god this book is a monolith. my edition is just under eight hundred pages: of those, i've read approximately five hundred. i'm only a little more than halfway in, but i think that this book has the potential to supplant catch-22 for the station of "favorite book". it's a huge, sprawling opus, one that's deeply human and philosophical. it's a veritable masterpiece so far. the one scene that really did it for me was the grand inquisitor chapter -- never since then have i viewed religion in the same life. it's one of the most mordant critiques of christianity that i've read. it's a very thought-provoking book, and i'm probably going to read it again at some point where i'm not mired in homework.

    i've been contemplating whether i should read jr by william gaddis or the first harry potter novel (never read the series, but so far it's kind of cute i guess, a bit far removed from the nostalgia which adolescents my age typically feel, as to be expected), but i figure i'm just saving myself unnecessary stress by refusing to read the novels at this moment

    ordered a few books today, so they should be here by friday or monday at the latest. i've discovered that i don't need to spend that much time online anymore so i feel as if devoting more of my time to reading and doing homework would be far more beneficial to me than what i'm currently doing.

    I'm not in the middle of anything, but I finished Kafka's short story In the Penal Colony yesterday and I have to get started on The Bell Jar soon (again), for English.

    Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by JKR

    I'm currently re-reading the entire series, partly because it's made of win, and I haven't done it in ages. But mostly because, after reading The Host by Stephenie Meyer, I need something I know is good, to wash out all the bad, bad writing I had to suffer through - a mental detox, if you will. Seriously, never read The Host; it's just Twilight as science fiction, but with even more rape culture.

    A portuguese book that we need to read for classes called "Memorial do Convento" (literally "Memorial of the Monastery") by José Saramago. The writing style is very...unique, to say the least, but the book is rather interesting, surely with a theme and way of dealing with it that's not something you see often.

    I got a new book about the Titanic for Eid al-Fitr, but I didn't bother reading it until a few days ago. It's called Voyagers. It's a really good book - it talks about a lot of the passengers on board. And it covers all three social classes - from wealthy businessmen to poor immigrants.

    My maternal grandmother got it for me because we share an interest in the Titanic. She was born in Tibnin, a village in Lebanon that produced several Titanic passengers. (There were nearly 100 Lebanese immigrants on the Titanic - virtually all were in third-class.) She told me that her father knew one of the victims.

    I just finished Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck (LOL LOL WHAT A DUMMY THAT LENNIE IS)

    Also finished re-reading Night by Elie Wiesel. Had to read it in 8th grade, and I wanted to read it again.

    Just finished the first part of "The Hunger Games" (so about 130 pages in).
    I like it so far. I like how it's got a rather slow pace. I also love how at one point I was thinking "When are the games going to start?" and then it made me realise that I'm just like those from the Capital xD.

    I'm currently reading The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien. I am just starting, but am enjoying it.
    The Blastoise is strong.

    I don't care about what people think. I am a Power Rangers fan, and I'm not afraid to admit it.
