Wild Magic by Tamora Pierce


 :D Tamora Pierce is one of my favorite authors ~ And The Immortals quartet is probably my favorite out of all  of the stories ~~~

I'm reading the latest Appleseed manga from Dark Horse, copyright 2008. dunno, but this seems to me to be about 20 years old, as I think I remember the first Appleseed movie running like this. hmmmmm.
I've been reading C.J. Cherryh, and Elizabeth Moon. Moon's The Speed of Dark was good. I can see why it won the Nebula award.

It's called The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde and it's a romantic comedy. Yes, it's a play, but still, you should read it if you're into classical wit and sarcasm. Also, it has a lot of puns.
I just finished it like, 30 minutes ago. It blew my friggin' mind xD

Thank you Jeff T Moderator for unlocking this thread.

I am reading "One Day on Mars" by Travis Taylor. Published by Baen books. I am posting about it, as Taylor has mecha in this novel. He seems to believe that they will be a viable military weapon in the future. THis is not a book about mecha, but they are an instrument of war, and so are in the book.

The book is also a bit more hard science fiction that pure space opera. But if you like action, he has been writing with John Ringo on a series, so has been able to bring what he has learned there, to his solo novels.

I can't say yet I recommend reading this book. I am having a harder time reading it than I had reading his other novels. Bu tit is nice to read sci-fi, that is not all gloom and doom.
Have Fun

I was kind of hoping this thread would come back. :'D

As for manga, I'm rereading 20th Century Boys and getting into Urasawa's other works for the first time (namely Pluto and Monster). What great stories...

And The Other Side of the River by Alex Kotlowitz is my current left-to-right novel. It's a book for English class, and I'm thoroughly enjoying it.

I am watching Toradora (Moving on to episode FIVE.)
And re-starting Death Note just for the pure joy of seeing if I forgot something. :3 Epicness, eh?

And.... THE AMULET OF SAMARKAND

I've been reading that book for a while, few years, lol. I like it, but I keep having to put it off for schoolbooks and texts and whatnot.

But, here are some of what I am currently reading:
- Watchmen by Alan Moore
- The Truly Disadvantaged by William Wilson
- The Norton Anthology of English Literature: The Victorian Age
- Stone of Tears by Terry Goodkind
- In the Days of Simon Stern by Arthur A. Cohen

I am reading 1635: The Dreeson Incident. It's an alternative history, part of the 1632 universe created by Eric Flint. I had never learned so much about this period of history until I started reading this series. It's really neat, to me. And I wonder what would life be like now, if I even existed now, if someone went back in time and made massive changes to the world. Besides that we would have been on the moon by 1776, at the latest. And what other eras could someone do affect the future? I think there are times that no matter how advanced the people going back in time were, that they could not change the future much, because of how backwards the time they went was, or that they would all be killed for witches or something.

Finished reading A Desert Called Peace by Tom Kratman. He has some what would be called radical ideas on how to solve our terrorism problem. Mainly by acting like those self-same terrorists. Is it the religion he hates, or just the adherents? Dunno.

Just started Elric Saga by Michael Moorcock. I hadn't ever read it before, not sure why, maybe I just didn't like the idea I got from the covers, or that it was supposed to be too fru-fru. Or, I am just not that into fantasy fiction. It's slow going to start, kind of like reading a Masterpiece Theatre production. or something...

I'm reading A word after dying (a college level book, and I'm in the eighth grade, take that people who say I'm stupid and suck at reading!)

Manga wise I'm reading Gin Tama, it's entertaining, but I'm not a huge fan of it, I think I have to read more before I can say anything more though.

Okay, I really don't want to read any more of the Elric Saga. It just isn't what I care about. It's written in a much older style than it was published. I am talking 1909, when E.R.R. Eddison had The Worm Ouroboros published, which I really liked a lot. I hope you can someday read it.

Been on a Ross Campbell kick lately, reading all of his graphic novels. I just found and read Water Baby yesterday, and today I reread The Abandoned. Fantastic drawing style and artistic capabilities, beautifully realistic characters.

@ MiriaRose, you oughta read Slaughterhouse 5 next then. Should only take you about a day. Main character time travels. It's written by Kurt Vonegut jr.

This diabetes is making it hard to read, my eyesight had already gone downhill, before I knew.

But I am trying, sort of, to read Dragonseye, byt Anne and Todd McCaffery. It's second pass stuff, and I am not so sure I am thrilled to read it, and I like 9th pass better. But... we shall see.
