Share whatever you're currently reading in this thread. Feel free to also give a short synopsis of the book so other people can see if they might want to read it too =3

I'm currently reading East of Eden by John Steinbeck for a class. My boyfriend is pushing me to read the manga series Negima!, which I plan on doing once I finish East of Eden.

I can't remember if East of Eden was the BDSM one or the crocodile one. Oh, Google tells me it is neither. Too many "of Edens".

I'm not reading anything right now, but I really recommend John Dies At The End. It is sooooooooooooooooooooooo cool! Scary as hell, though.

I may start reading the Cyborg 009 manga again. It was really good!

Yeah, East of Eden is an old classic.

Anyway, I've heard that John Dies at the End is good. I've thought of reading it before.

Maybe you heard me raving about it on that other forum's book thread because I CAN'T STOP PRAISING IT.

I'm going to the school library today so I'll be sure to check out what they have. I know they have got some manga, which is rad.

A friend got me to read it a few months ago. I liked it, but sometimes I felt that it was just being vulgar for the sake of being vulgar. It would have been a lot funnier if the author had toned that down a bit.

JDATE had a narrative that I personally loved and seemed so unique to me. I suppose there were vulgar bits, though, it certainly wasn't PG. Each chapter was like a South Park episode played dead seriously.

My issue wasn't with the fact that it had vulgar content at all, but that it felt unneeded. If I remember correctly, I said something to my friend like "it seems like they have to fill a quota of mentioning a penis every few pages", lol.

I'm reading Howl's Moving Castle~ about halfway through. Sophie has a lot more spunk in the book versus the movie. She can really put Howl in his place.

I'm reading the Durarara!! manga, though I only have the first two volumes. Durarara is one of my absolute favorite series though, so it's pretty awesome.

I was able to skim the first volume of Death Note. Gorgeous art.

The Death Note manga is lovely~

I'm between manga series right now. I'm currently reading the Artifacts Cycle from the Magic: The Gathering universe. Then I'll be reading Game of Thrones. .

xxxHolic is getting really heavy on crossovering with other CLAMP series' and I can't say I enjoy it.

Oh, yeah, CLAMP stuff does that a lot. It's kinda obnoxious when you're reading your first CLAMP manga especially >.>
