I've just finished When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit, The Other Way Around and A Small Person Far Away by Judith Kerr, very good series of books that i read when i was younger...just re-reading them takes me back to when i was about 8 or so, really recommend reading them if you haven't.

^I've been meaning to read those, since I got given a copy of the first one for my birthday.
I've just finished the Sweet Far Thing, which was an amazing (if lengthy) conclusion to the Trilogy. Now I'm reading Potiki, by Patricia Grace, which has thought-provoking themes about developers trying to buy land off the local Maori so they can ruin it by building a tourist resort-y place. I'm definitely going to have a look at more of her books in the future.

Is the Sweet Far Thing by Judith Kerr? I can't find it anywhere, just another called Bombs on Aunty Dainty *confused* where can i get my hands on a copy of it?

**Edit** i think i was having a bit of a (what my fella would call) blonde moment...sorry

Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac.

Honestly, its my ultime favourite book :D (seeing as Twilight and Harry Potter are series)

Finished Atlantis Unmasked by Alyssa Day. It was really good, the ending seemed far too simple. I think it is deceptively simple making me crave the next book.

Now I am back the Breeds series, reading Mercury's War by Lora Leigh.

Catching Fire Catching Fire Catching Fire!!!
*dances* I dropped Phantom fo the Opera for it.

But there's a book coming out soon that I'm more excited for, even more than CF. Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson (who's writing the other series I've been reading) wrote a new book for Jordan's series (cuz he died, so Brandon finished it) and I'm UBER EXCITED!!!!!! /dances crazily*

I am reading Stephen King Goes To The Movies. It is a collection of all the short stories by Stephen which later got turned into movies.

I finished 1408 and it's not all that it's cracked up to be. I will see the movie now.

Agatha Christie is way better with supernatural themes. Her The Hound Of Death and While the Light Lasts were a treat to read.I highly recommend them. Both are collections of short stories.
If all else perished and he remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained and and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger.

I finished Mercury's War and it was really good. Now I'm working on the following Breeds novel called Coyote's Mate by Lora Leigh.
