What kinda books are you reading right now?

  • What kinda books are you reading right now?

    Well, the question explains itself.

    I'm reading a book called 'two little girls in blue' by Mary Higgins Clark. I'm also reading 'The Odyssey' by Homer for a school assiongment. I just got done like, literally, this morning with Mary Higgins Clark's 'No place like home'... whoa, do I feel like a nerd0_o

  • Malleus Maleficarum (The Hammer of Witches)... fascinating ;)
    Dean Koontz- Intensity - I prefer King than Koontz, but DK is also good

    "Few creatures of the night have captured our imagination like vampires...
    What explains our enduring fascination with vampires?
    What is it about the vampire myth that explains our interest?
    Is it the overtones of sexual lust, power, control...
    Or is it a fascination with the immortality of the undead?
    And what dark and hidden parts of our psyche are aroused and captivated
    By the legends of the undead"
  • Novels I'm reading:
    Ulysses by James Joyce
    The Iliad by Homer
    Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck (university project)
    The Illuminatus! Trilogy by Shea & Wilson

    Poets I'm reading:
    Dante (The Divine Comedy)
    John Keats
    Percy Bysshe Shelley
    William Blake
    William Wordsworth
    Samuel Taylor Coleridge
    Lord Byron
    Felicia Hemans
    Charlotte Smith
    Mary Robinson

    Aside from all that I'm also reading a hell of a lot of literary theory; it feels like I'm covering absolutely everything from the Enlightenment to Post-Modernism, though I'm trying to concentrate on Psychoanalysis as that's what I'm covering in the debate at the end of the semester...

    I just got Dreamers of the Day by Maria Doria Russell (which I'm really excited about, T. E. Lawrence is one of my peculiar obsessions) and the first Flashman book (author's name eludes me – something McDonald) from the library.

    Silence by Shūsaku Endō
    Silence (沈黙, Chinmoku) is a 1966 novel of historical fiction by Japanese author Shusaku Endo drawn from the oral histories of Kakure Kirishitan and Hanare Kirishitan communities in Japan. It is the story of a fictional Jesuit missionary sent to seventeenth century Japan, who endured persecution in the time of Kakure Kirishitan ("Hidden Christians") that followed the defeat of the Shimabara Rebellion. The recipient of the 1966 Tanizaki Prize, it has been called "Endo’s supreme achievement" and "one of the twentieth century’s finest novels". Written mostly in the form of a letter by its central character, the theme of a silent God who accompanies a believer in adversity was greatly influenced by the Catholic Endo's experience of religious discrimination in Japan, racism in France and debilitating tuberculosis. | Source: Wikipedia
