bookish_dragon: Discworld rules (Bookshop is a black hole)
Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pa, by Christopher Moore. I like it so far.

The Thing on the Doorstep and Other Weird Stories, by H.P. Lovecraft. I liked the podcast-version of "The Music of Erich Zann" enough to buy some of his work and read for myself.

And going to start PopCo, by Scarlett Thomas. It lured me with its cover. So blue...

The Silmarillion, by J.R.R. Tolkien. I'm progressing, honest! I survived Túrin Turambar. He whines too much for my liking.

A hat full of sky, by Terry Pratchett. Second in the Tiffany Aching-series. Nac Mac Feegle, wa hey!

Het verstoorde leven, by Etty Hillesum. The diary of a young Jewish woman during the beginning of the Second World War.

Heart-shaped Box, by Joe Hill. Judas Coyne, rockstar and purveyor of the weird and the macabre, buys a ghost off the Internet. The ghost turns out not to be his biggest fan...

Blaze, by Richard Bachman. After his partner George dies, Clayton 'Blaze' Blaisdell decides to go ahead with their plan to kidnap a baby for ransom. Blaze not being the brightest sort, things soon start going wrong. Horribly wrong.

Once bitten, twice shy, by Jennifer Rardin. Jaz Parks, working for the CIA, gets partnered up with Vlay, a vampire born in 1744. Ostentatiously as his bodyguard, which he needs about as much as he does a suntan. Why did he request her, will they get along without bloodshed, and what is she hiding?

The Silmarillion, by J.R.R. Tolkien, still.

The Screwtape letters, by C.S. Lewis. The story takes the form of a series of letters from a senior demon, Screwtape, to his nephew, a junior tempter named Wormwood, to advise him on methods of securing the damnation of an earthly man, known only as "the Patient."

Sex and the single vampire, by Katie MacAlister. Paranormal chicklit. She is a Summoner (of ghosts), he a sexy vampire who needs her to redeem his soul. And there's a mysterious organisation who'd love to get their hands on them both, for different reasons.

Gates of fire, by Steven Pressfield. The battle of the Spartans at Thermopylae.

The Silmarillion, by J.R.R. Tolkien. The earliest history of Arda. This one is a bit on and off, since I can't always concentrate on it.
