Default What was the last book you finished?   #1  
Yeah, not the last book you picked up and tried to read, but the last you actually finished? XD If you wish, you can tell if you hated or loved it (or were left simply unimpressed) and why.

Mine is "The Martian Chronicles" by Ray Bradbury and let me tell honestly, it is one of the BEST books I have ever read. Wow. I loved how he told the stories, the told and untold meanings behind them, how real were the characters, how much... The book is about us, the present, the side of everything we don't want to see.

The last book I read was Countess of Scandal by Laurel Mckee. It is about a couple who when they were young had been in love, Eliza Blacknail and William Denten. Will had joined the English arm and left Ireland for many years. Years later soon before the war between the Irish and English, Will's troups return to Ireland. Eliza, who became a countess after the years, and now is a widow, secretly joined an underground Irish rebellion. It Will tries to figure her out, they're fillings are still strong as ever, and the war has began.

I won't say anymore for romance lovers~ I really did enjoy this book. The ending surprised me at how supence filled it was. I can't wait to read about her second book which is about Eliza's sister and a sexy duke!

Though her writing had a few errors, it was still well written and had me very entertained in the end. It did start a little slow and took me a while to finish. lol If they're really good I can finish them in a night. lol

This afternoon, I finished The Ghost King by R.A. Salvatore. It's the last in a series of a kajillion (20-something) books. I bawled like a little baby at the end.

I really like all the philosophical stuff in this series of books. Sometimes there are simple typos, and enough of them that they really should have been caught. Sometimes the writing is cheesy and has such bad foreshadowing that it makes me cringe. But the way he writes his characters is so wonderful, and the trials he throws at them make them really come to life. Even the characters I don't like very much, I still feel compassion for if they're hurt or tormented. The characters really come to life for me, and the combination of the well-written characters and the creative plot really make the books wonderful.

The second book of the Monster Blood Tattoo trilogy, Lamplighter. Looking forward to the third book. D M Cornish spent years outlining his world and it's nice to relax inside someone else's imagination, knowing you're in good hands and not cheesy ones.

2. The Child Thief by Brom: Amazing book. I couldn't put it down~

3. Merlin's Dragon by T.A. Barron: Another short one. X3 But really good, anyway.

I just know there are some books I can't force my self to finish. I pick them up at the book-starving time, but they are so bad, I can't get trough them (like German romance books >o>), that's why I added "finished".

"The Martian Chronicles" is amazing! Bradbury is such an amazing writer, and his scifi has a delightfully human element to it that many others unfortunately gloss over in favour of technology. If you haven't already, you should pick up his short story collection, because he really shines with his shorter tales. If you get the complete version, it's a giant monster of a book, easily over a thousand pages.

The last book I finished was "The Ball Jar," by Sylvia Plath. If it weren't for the undercurrent of racism in her descriptions, I would count it as one of the greatest books I've read, but I didn't exactly enjoy reading it. I don't think it's supposed to be enjoyed.

Oh, no, I haven't read his other stories yet, but I intend to do. Unfortunately, probably not that much has been translated in Latvian and republished at this moment. ^^;
And, yes, the book's absolutely amazing. I instantly added it to one of my favorites. He has amazing writing style and I love how he weaved a whole big story together from small pieces.

:D Salvatore's books are some of the best books I've ever read, and I'm happy that I was able to get you into them C: I didn't really read any books at all but when my friend gave me the first book of that 20-something some 3-4 years ago I was addicted to them. At one point over 1 week I read 6 of the books @.@

And as for the latest book I read, it was Elminster in Hell by Ed Greendwood. I really like Forgotten Realms C: And the book wasn't so bad :P
