Well the start of the semester definitely ate into almost all of my reading.

I finally finished Mockingjay a few days ago. I thought the trilogy was ok, but too much of it was focused on Katniss's love triangle for my liking.

Yesterday I started

Have all of you reading In The Garden Of Beasts read Devil In The White City? Personally I liked that one much more and I'd recommend it to anyone. So if you haven't read that one, do it.

Right now I'm reading Quiet: The Power Of Introverts In a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain. I'm only about 25% through and it's alright but seems more anecdotal than scientific so far which is pretty meh to me. Hopefully it gets better.

After that I'll be reading The Signal And The Noise: Why So Many Predictions Fail - But Some Don't by Nate Silver

Finished up Neuromancer by William Gibson. Easily the best Cyberpunk novel I've ever read, and possibly the best Science Fiction novel. Seriously considering doing my master's dissertation over the book.

Starting Diamond Age: Or, A Young Lady's Illustrated Primer by Neal Stephenson. I loved Snow Crash and thought Cryptonomicon was decent, so I can't wait to see how this one plays out.

And then you have to read the Robot novels for the later crossover with the Second Foundation trilogy.
It's good reading, if not necessarily good writing and well-drawn characters.

Currently reading:
Long Legged Fly by James Sallis

Detective noir. Really short book. Only about 160 pages. Should finish it by tomorrow or Sunday.

Started Second Book of Lost Swords by Fred Saberhagen.

Not sure why I keep reading these. The writing is pretty dull, and the swords aren't nearly used in as many interesting ways as they could be.

Thanks to the Kaiju Combat Kickstarter, I got a free ebook copy of Project NEMESIS: A Kaiju Thriller. I'm only a few chapters in, but I gotta say, I'm already sure I'm going to be recommending this to people for years to come.

Finished Brave New World. I liked it, though I definitely prefer 1984.

Next will probably be either Game of throne or Under the Dome.

And on that note, I'm currently reading an anthology of short stories about dystopias called Brave New Worlds. Pretty good so far, though I can't say as many of the stories have stood out to me, but I'm enjoying the variety in how dystopian literature is approached. While there are a few of your typical dystopias, many take unique approaches in either what caused the utopia or how the government exerts its control.

I use Shelfari, but if you start a Goodreads CAG group, I'll transfer over to it.

Edit- I'll just stick to using this thread to join CAG readers.

Can't go wrong with either one.

Since my last post I have finished several books.

Pillars of Earth (Good)
Dune (Very Good)
All Quiet on the Western Front (Excellent)
Me Talk Pretty One Day (Meh)

I started The Looming Tower a few days ago. It is very engrossing.

I just picked that up in paperback from a library sale. Good to see someone else liked it.

There is one but it was pretty much DOA.

I think I'm going to start the Dragonrider's of Pern series today. I feel like this series was sort of a joke to me when I was in middle school so I never tried it. Should I get into it?

Spin by Robert Charles Wilson

Started it last weekend. Only maybe 50 pages in so far, and it hasn't quite captivated me yet. Hell, it won the Hugo, so that was enough for me to pick it up. But I don't need a trite coming of age and unrequited love story shoved in the middle.
Good sci-fi is hard to find.
