    ^^ I like how you say that with the name "thighs" and your current post number is 69. Integral plot points to that book I hear!

    Just started The Night Circus (Erin Morgenstern) -- friends are raving about it and so far, so good. And now I'm thinking perhaps I should also re-read The Great Gatsby before the movie...

    super sad true love story, by gary shteyngart.
    i'm about half way through and love it so far. it's a dystopian love story and so smart and funny and full of hilariously astute observations about a totally possible and imaginable near future.

    Just finished the Hunger Games trilogy (yeah, yeah). Wtf. It's depressing. I feel empty and lost in melancholy. Can't believe that's a kids book.

    The True Sea by F.W. Belland. It's set in the Florida Keys in the years 1909 till 1925 about Flaglers railroad linking Key West to the rest of America. Pretty good so far.
    See, Whores, we are good for something. Love, Florida

    ooh, I bet I'd love that! I'll have to check it out!

    I'm reading Nightwoods by Charles Frazier about small town North Carolina in the 1960s. Haven't gotten far yet.

    Mauthausen - Iakovos Kampanellis

    Kampanellis was a concentration camp survivor. He's a Greek poet and playwright. The book starts with the liberation of Mauthausen by the Americans and the afternath for the prisoners as they get to mix with the female prisoners for the first time. The main character had fallen in love with one of the girls from afar and gets to finally be with her. We get a lot of snapshots of the life in the camp in flashbacks but in general, I thought it was a good idea to start with the liberation, it definitely makes it easier to read. It's a true story.

    I don't know if the English translation is any good but it's truly a brilliant book. I've never read or watched anything about the Holocaust that came alive the way this book does.
    What if Superman is psychotic and everyone can see that he's Clark Kent but they just play along not to set him off?

    i finished about a month ago and loved it. yes, they are harsh and violent, especially for a kids' book, but i like that the author didn't sugarcoat and act like the heroes were perfect human beings who lived happily ever after.

    I really loved The Hunger Games Trilogy, too. I liked the premise before I picked it up, but I was surprised how much I actually enjoyed the characters and the overall writing. I even read the first book over again even though I had other things to read, and I hardly ever do that.

    A Feast for Crows. Needs more Tyrion, but still pretty good.

    Has anyone read Before I Fall? My neighbor keeps saying that my daughter and I would both love it but warned it can be a painful read. She said it's like a mix of Mean Girls and Groundhog Day?
