January 2010 Reading List!


1. Cirque Du Freak 6: The Vampire Prince, by Darren Shan (208 pages)
2. Cirque Du Freak 7: Hunters of the Dusk, by Darren Shan (256 pages)
I can give or take the series, honestly. It's decently written with an interesting plot, but mostly fluff.

3. The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins (374 pages)
A really awesome beginning to a utopia/dystopia implied postapocalyptic series. The characters are solid with definite goals and pasts that are weaved into it very well. Totally recommend.

4. Dayworld Rebel, by Philip Jose Farmer (256 pages)
Second in the series. Read the first ages ago and finally found this one at a used bookstore. Great read. Also postapocalyptic utopia/dystopia.

5. Catching Fire, by Suzanne Collins (391 pages)
Second in the series started with The Hunger Games. Just as compelling as the first. Cannot wait for the next installment in August!

Total book pages: 1,485

Progress: 5/50

Next on my list: Leaves of Grass, The Crying of Lot 49, In Our Time, Storm Front, The Man with the Golden Torc

Comic books/Manga:
(doing this in part to force myself to read what I own)

1. The Boys Volume 5: Herogasm, by Garth Ennis (144 pages)
Good series. Really like the anti-hero aspects and the moral implications of superheroes. Definitely took an odd/disturbing turn in this one.

2. Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne: Volume 1 (176 pages)
3. Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne: Volume 2 (176 pages)
4. Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne: Volume 3 (200 pages)
Cute little series by Arina Tanemura. I really like her Full Moon wo Sagashite, so when I found this at a used bookstore I grabbed it. Reminds me of Saint Tail in a lot of ways.

Total comic book/manga pages: 696

Progress: 4/50

Next on my list: several Doctor Who comics, Dragon Knights, Hunter x Hunter, issues of Shonen Jump
