I'm currently in the middle of 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami, next up is Pontypool Changes Everything by Tony Burgess, I'll be reading James Joyce's Ulysses for school this upcoming semester (which I feel like is going to be a daunting task), and Gravity's Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon, Fury by Salman Rushdie, and The Rational Optimist by Matt Ridley are sitting on my bedside table, waiting to be read. I've got a shit ton of reading to do in 2012.

To those of you who are somehow confused - this is a thread where you list the books you read. We had one last year that worked great - http://absolutepunk.net/showthread.php?p=100219602

It's just like the Movie List only with Books.

This looks fun. I have a feeling Organic Chem is going to cut down on my reading time this semester but I read like a maniac anyway — mostly anything fantasy that's not medieval.

Here's my Goodreads link.

Currently:
Daughter of Smoke and Bone - Laini Taylor

January
1. Special Topics in Calamity Physics - Marisha Pessl
2. The Thin Executioner - Darren Shan
3. The Fault in Our Stars - John Green

That guy wrote another book I know called The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray, kind of a horror/fantasy YA novel. I read it when I was probably 15 and really liked it — I should put this one on my list.
