I've decided upon Black Edelweiss: A Memoir of Combat and Conscience by a Soldier of the Waffen-SS by Johann Voss for now. It seems like all I read anymore is military-themed history books from ancient Rome up to Afghanistan and Iraq. Sometimes I think I missed my calling somewhere along the line.

I was originally thinking of saving this one until I have jury duty in August, but I've unfortunately started it too soon. But I could always read it again....

I'm reading a bunch of different books all at once lol. I will literally read 2-5 books all within the same day & still follow all the plotlines & never get confused.

The ones I've been reading recently are (some I'm re-reading, & others I'm reading for the first time):

"Blood Noir" by Laurell K. Hamilton (first time read)
"New Moon" by Stephenie Meyers (first time read)
"Tipping the Velvet" by Sarah Waters (re-read)
"City of Ember" by Jeanne DuPrau (first time read)
"I'm Looking Through You; Growing Up Haunted: A Memoir" by Jeniffer Finney Boylan (just finished this morning)

I could actually add more lol, but those are the main ones.

Recently read "Look Homeward Angel" by Thomas Wolfe , a novel with some very good socialphobic themes. It's an underrated timeless classic. Though written in America, I think it was a book that was actually popular with the Germans at the time of its publication in c1933

I've read "Twilight" & am reading "New Moon" right now. I wasn't expecting to like them, but they're very good & immensely absorbing.

currently reading "painfully shy" by Barbara and Gregory Markway.

p.s. I really wanna read a good fictional book full of modern mythology's and suburban fairy tales, but don't know where to start looking? If anyone has any recommendations that'd be cool! I just found this artist the other day who I love;

Shaun Tan - Picture books

I'd love to find more like him....any ideas?

Oh, have you watched the film? You should watch the movie after you read the book if you haven't already.
