i should probably read it again.

i finished this a couple of weeks ago:



i was sceptical about reading a vampire novel with the overflow of fangs in pop culture at the moment, but i enjoyed it. i found the writing cheesey sometimes (just read the strap line on the cover) and the dialogue bugged me a few times. this stuff didn't really matter, though, because i liked the story enough to finish it very quickly by my standards.

Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt by Chris Hedges
How to be a Person: The Strangers Guide to College, Sex, Intoxicants, Tacos, and Life Itself
that's the one book I have read of that list, I guess I didn't do much reading in 2012 lol, but it was a great and fast read. I think you can finish it in one sitting if you start early in the day, definitely grabs you. the premise felt like it bit Dostoyevsky a little hard but is a much faster and easier read.

Just finished this book and I thought it was pretty interesting in the way that it made connections between magic and the use of psychology, math, and even a bit of physics. The mentalist portion of the book was probably the most interesting as it went into detail about how people like John Edward and psychics are able to play on people's emotions and mental states to take advantage and make it seem like what they're doing is real.

enjoyed it. the ending was anti climactic.








so far, so good. a depressing story, though. it's about an innocent man on Texas' death row.

This book started off really slow and I almost stopped reading it, but I continued with it and the last few hundred pages were stunningly amazing. So glad I didn't judge it from it's slow start and finished it.
