Finished re-reading Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell (still such a good read...even after the 4th time!)

Now re-reading two books at the same time:

"Elegance of the Hedgehog" Muriel Barbery and "Consider Phlebas" Iain M Banks

Finished "Consider Phlebas", put "Elegance of the Hedgehog" on hold so that I can re-read "The Hobbit" ready for the launch of the first film in a few days time.

Warriors: The New Prophecy - Twilight
Posted Image
It's an amazing book, one of my favorite of the series. It is really sad, and I can relate to Leafpool a lot. :( It's really deep, especially when Leafpool is breaking the warrior code by loving Crowfeather but Spottedleaf, a medicine cat from StarClan (cat heaven) simply tells her to follow her heart. :blink:

Ibong Adarna (it is in Filipino by the way) for school that book is just like lolwut whoa what the heck is happening because honestly it doesn't make sense lol like when Don Juan caught the Ibong Adarna then he brought it back to his kingdom and he and his three brothers took turns watching it but they lost it and Don Juan claimed responsibility so he ran away to Armenia like what why did he run away then he found a magic kingdom inside a well, slew a giant and a serpent and found two princesses. The story gets weirder and weirder as it progresses... Like these seven tasks Don Juan had to do for Maria Blanca's father so he could marry her seriously what's her father's problem I mean "Go get this one stalk of wheat and bring it to a mountain and turn it into bread overnight and bring it back and I will eat it for breakfast" "I have a jar with 12 Negros in it but they escaped please catch them and put them back in the jar" "Please move a mountain beside my palace so I can see it in my window" "Now move it to the ocean and build a castle" "I changed my mind, I want it back near my window, please move it back and destroy the castle you built" "Oops, I dropped my ring in the ocean please get it back for me" O_o seriously though that king what and I have to study it for the big test tomorrow and I'm nervous I'm pretty sure my Filipino grade went down but I can't be sure because my dad forgot to get my report card anyways the point is I gotta do well to bring my grades up

Norwegian Wood - by Haruki Murakami (in translation) - such a good book... and there's a film too - recommend it
