The Vampire Diaries by L. J. Smith (fan-FREAKING-tastic) and I'm even more excited because she's planning on releasing more *jumps up and down in excitement*

I also just started (I literally just got and started it today...) another series from her called Night World and I'm almost done with the first book.

L.J. Smith is seriously a great author-I love her characters and I got so into one of the Vampire Diaries books that I threw it across the room in anger with what happened at the end of one of them. I takes a lot for me to be SO involved in a story and I've never done that before... Shifty

Wob:
»L'écume des jours - Boris Vian, it's called ''froth on the daydream'' in English. Absolutely marvellous. Definitely the most peculiar novel I've read so far. Also one of the best, obviously.

»L'étranger - Albert Camus, ''the stranger''. Also quite peculiar. I didn't like it at first, but after analysing it, I've taken a great liking to it.

»Das Parfum - Patrick Suskind, ''Perfume''. I'd have never thought it possible to write a book using as main descriptive sense Smell, but it seems S­uskind has done it, with amazing success.

»2001; A space odyssey - Arthur C. Clark. A completely different experience than the movie, yet very well written.


»The Exorcist - William Peter Blatty. I loved the movie, but the novel... amazing.

»a) The world of Karl Pilkington & b) Happyslapped by a jellyfish - a)R.Gervais, S.Merchant, K.Pilkington, b) K.Pilkington. pure genius. or idiocy. your take.

Evernight (I really hope that it will be a series)
Wuthering Heights (well, I'm almost done with it and it's freaking awesome so far).

I also forgot to say that I started another L.J. Smith series- The Secret Circle.
What frustrates me is that they don't just re-publish them all at the same time. I get to read the first three books and then I have to wait forever just to get the next three... same with the Sweep series-except that's only one at a time...oh well...

Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
Yes, it's probably overrated; no it's not "great literature." But that book...just sort of hit something in me, y'know, like...I can't describe it. But I love it--and I did before I ever got into Green Day. >.>

Also, all of Jerry Spinelli's books, Stargirl especially. He's such a brilliant writer, every book of his just...carries me away. I've been wanting to reread all his books for awhile but I can't get ahold of some of them yet. -.-

Same with Sharon Creech.

Tweak is great. Have you read Beautiful Boy by his father? Also very good. It's interesting to see both of their perspectives on his addiction.
