Dracula, well, I'm almost finished, it's an amazing book

I really enjoy The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I saw the movie and liked it. I need to fish out the book and re-read it.

I saw the movie and thought it was rather compelling which is what lead me to read the book. I really felt it translated quite well from the paper to the screen.

Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke. I'd recommend it if your a fan of fantasy, but if you're not into that sort of thing it might seem a little long and tedious

Wool. Definitely liked it, an interesting take on dystopia.

I know its kind of cliche but slaughterhouse 5, its just reads so fluidly even though the story is quite dark.

The last book I read was American Gods. I found it to be an enjoyable work of fiction that left me craving a pasty.

I am reading the Warlord Chronicles by Bernard Cornwell..I would highly recommend these books. I am on the last book in the series and I will be kinda sad when I am done as the characters are so well developed I have become somewhat fond of them.
