    I'm reading Swimsuit right now. So far, it's really good. I love Patterson's writing style, too. His stories are character-driven and his writing style keeps the stories moving at a fast pace.

    The Strain by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan. Finally some scary-ass vampires, no sparkles at all.

    i've been in a nostalgic mood lately. i'm rereading one bande dessinée after another.

    CD corps diplomatique by daniel & paûle ceppi. it's a bd that tries to shed light on international relations after the fall of the berlin wall. main character is léocaldie lulla, who works for the CNUCED in geneva. she's intelligent, decisive and independent. i quite like her. the story begins when léo finds the body of an older man on her doormat and inspector nizza arrives.

    Dead and Gone Charlaine Harris. Not as bad as I feared. Waiting for the new book to come out in paperback. Love the books so much more than the show.

    I just finished that. At first I didn't really like the vampires because they were more like zombie sci-fi monsters than the vampires I'm used to. As they dealt more with the master and his story, it became a lot more interesting. Are you going to read all three books?

    I just finished "Eden". Such a good zombie apocalypse story! I woke up in the middle of the night needing to find out what happened. I hope they make a movie out of it. It was very good.

    At the moment, I am trying to read Eat Pray and Love.

    Not sure if I will end up finishing this book, I am finding the main character annoying.

    Crappy chick lit loaned by my chick-lit-loving friend. She eats it up with a spoon and turns it over to me, but I can't get into most of it. Right now it's Faking It by Jennifer Crusie. I have to suspend reality way too much to enjoy it.
