The last book I read: Shadow of the Wind - Carlos Zafon
- a story about tragic love and mystery, was actually really good! A man at a second hand store recommended it and it's arguably one of my all time faves!
The book I am currently reading: Moby Dick
Books I want to read next: Not sure! By the time I finish Moby Dick, I'll be back at uni which means the only books i'll be reading are text books :/
The last book I read: A Dance with Dragons (the latest of A Song of Ice and Fire series). At the rate George RR Martin is writing though, I'll probably start watching the new series of Game of Thrones instead of waiting for the next book
The book(s) I'm currently reading: I'm trying to finish off a bunch of books I started, which are:
- What about me? The struggle for identity in a market-based society - Paul Verhaeghe: it's an interesting take on mental illness, approaching it from a socioeconomic standpoint
- The Year of the Flood - Margaret Atwood: I started the first three chapters and then forgot I owned the book lol
- Sacred Modernity: Nature, environment and the postcolonial geographies of Sri Lankan nationhood - Tariq Jazeel: just trying to learn more about my home country (away from a nationalist source)
- Women's movement in Sri Lanka - Selvy Thiruchandran: same deal as above
- Emma - Jane Austen: this is the same deal as the Atwood novel, I apparently don't pay much attention to my books lol
Books I want to read next: LOL let's not think about that right now
A book hasn't caused me to laugh for a very long time.
@tsnyder Hopefully you can find some time to read books other than textbooks when you get uni. For me, i found that time was before I went to sleep.
I am reading Lost and found by Brooke Davis. It is a funny and enjoyable book to read. There are three unique characters you get to learn about. And one of them is a 7-year old kid (Millie Bird). Every time I read her perspective it makes me want to be a kid again.

After reading The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns about a year ago I've finally started 'And The Mountains Echoed' by Khaled Hosseini, and I'm enthralled. His writing provides such an insight into Afghani culture
No human being, however great or powerful, was ever so free as a fish
