The Scar by China Mieville. Must read for any fantasy/sci-fi fan. It just blew my mind~

I'd write a review, but I just came back from the hospital, where they injected stuff in my veins to counteract my allergy caused by too much Penicillin, which had led to my arms/hands becoming swollen and itchy and achy. Lol.

I think I'm gonna get that book the 48 Laws of Power. I'm familiar with some of the principles. I'me very wary of anyone using manipulation/power/control on me. I shall go away..

I read "The Art of Seduction" by Robert Green years ago and that book was on my mind for years!! I once "helped" a complete stranger (we INFP's can do this easily) after he described to me behaviors his g/f was inflicting upon himself. I told him, "I believe you have just described this book I've been reading called The Art of Seduction." I then went on to describe what was in the book. He very surprisingly told me that he remembers seeing that his g/f had the book!! I'm afraid her "games" were over and done with after that but I was glad to help the poor guy with his dilemma.

Siddhartha, in the original German. I must have read that poem 100 times. And every time I do, I understand it a little more.

My absolute favorite book of all time is Lathe of Heaven by Ursula K. LeGuin. I find that I can relate to the protagonist, George Orr, in a lot of ways.

I also love way too many other books to count, from American Gods to the Sabriel/Lirael/Abhorsen series to A Separate Peace to Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler ... just so many books.

The Myth Adventures series by Robert Asprin, a combination of fantasy and comedy. Heartwarming.
Out of the Silent Planet by C.S. Lewis. A Christian view on science fiction is interesting.
When the Wind Blows and The Lake House by James Patterson.
The Way of Wyrd by Brian Bates.
