I just finished Jack of Kinrowan by Charles De Lint. I give it 4/5 stars.

Fun, fast-paced reading for those who love urban fantasy.

Last book I read was The Garden of Last Days bt Andre Dubus III. A superb read and it's gets 10/10 from me.
For something completely different I have just started reading The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman.

The last book i've read was Stieg Larsson's The girl who kicked the hornets nest. I give it four out of five stars. The book was really good and never for a second predictable. A few passages was a little overwritten and unnecessary though. Apart from this last thing i absolutley loved it.

the most recent fiction book i read was the darkest part of the woods, which i think would be around 3 out of 5 stars...superbly written, but kind of...off. just kind of a let down in some places, but worth the read.

The last book I read was "The Hunger Games" -Suzanne Collins. It is a very enjoyable, quick YA read. I would give it 3.5 stars out of 5. :)

A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess. Really interesting and you get used to to the language used easily if you've seen the film.

4.5/5.

Recently I have read some classics - "Vanity Fair" Thackeray. I have been re-reading it. I think my mark is 3 out of 5. Not much, but there are things there that I really like.

Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier 4.5/5

Extraordinarily magical young adult fantasy story! Anyone who is a fan of this genre should seek it out.

Remember Me by Mary Higgins Clark. I give it a 10 out of 10. Very suspenseful.

The Road by Cormac McCarthy. I read the book in less than two days and I thought it was excellent.

Golden Butterfly - AM Williamson 3/5

It was a good story, but it seems in the later years she was writing for an audience instead of herself. Her later books lack the purity and innocence of she and her husband's earlier novels.
