  • I'm almost done with gone girl. (:

    But I'm sorry.. I won't be on in October and November due to exams, so I'd participate back in December. Sorry for the inconvenience caused. ><

  • The Wasp Factory - Iain M Banks

    Who doesn't like a book where boys set fire to dogs and girls have their genitals eaten by them?

    • Lol why not?

    • Show All
    • Well yeah. I wasn't expecting a turn out like this honestly. I just thought it'd be cool. I've loved reading since I was kid and I've always wanted to join a bookclub. I spend a lot of time here so I thought why not? It's also a way to interact and get to know each other.

    • Yeah I see what you mean.

  • I'm okay with whatever - just not one that's not 1000 pgs... I'm still trying to finish the GoT series xD

    • There isn't any...

    • Then I'd suggest "Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynmann" by Richard P. Feynmann. It's a collection of anecdotes, the "lol... so that was a thing that happened" type of stories and some are just seriously eccentric but the prose is so well done, but not dry, that it's relatable for the layman.
      Another one I always throw out is The Hot Zone by Richard Preston. I read it back in high school and it's one of my favorites, like a true story horror story. Then the whole Ebola outbreak happened and I was just like "O___O..."
      And also The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. It's about a cervical cancer patient, Henrietta Lacks, and the trials she went through not only with the somewhat ethically ambiguous nature of medical care ad research back then but also the fact that the ethical issues were also compounded by race.
      And lastly, I noticed someone put in Pride and Prejudice. I'd like to raise that to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, because. Just because. Zombz, man.

  • Hey I'm really sorry but I still haven't gotten around to finishing the last book because I've been busy with school. But for October can we read a scary horror book? Like Stephen King or something? Just a thought

    • Yes! I read that some years ago. Great book, rather creepy tho lol

    • Yeah, that's why I like it, it's sad and so interesting to think about. Have you tried Call of Cthulha, it's a little difficult to follow but it's worth it.

      I love reading but I also just read real crime books now lol

    • I haven't heard of that one. I love reading too.

  • I wasn't able to get Gone Girl :(

    Suggestions:
    We Were Liars
    Pride and Prejudice
