I am a Cat - Natsume Sōseki
Almost the Japanese equivalent of Oscar Wilde. Frivolously, aimlessly addictive and excellently translated (I assume) to boot. Will be reading all of his stuff now.

Currently reading a series titled The Amulet



So far it's a fun fantasy adventure series of two young children traped in another world...
Very original, very unique and all around very inspiring to all those interested in artwork.

I enjoyed the first one. Have you ever tried the Courtney Crumrin series?

I'm reading Christopher Booker's The Seven Basic Plots, a rare nonfiction book for my story-starved self. It's got some pretty interesting stances on stories. Worth a read if you're into literary critique or scholarship.

I recently finished watching Hyouka, which has a lot of homages to Agatha Christie, so I decided to check out the queen of mystery for myself with And Then There Were None. I have to say, it was pretty good. I usually like a bit more drama in what I read, but it got my brain working, which is also fun. I might look into the mystery genre a little more, and see if I can find something more in line with my style.

I finished "The Shambling Guide to New York" by Mur Lafferty. It's a very imaginative book that I really enjoyed.

Next up: "The Graveyard Book" by Neil Gaiman.

"The Graveyard Book" by Neil Gaiman was a great book and is often labeled as Young Adult. It's about a child that escapes from a murder and is given sanctuary by the spirits of a graveyard. It's very imaginative, and the end is quite moving. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Next up: "Fade to Black" by Francis Knight.

I've gone back to visiting childhood classics, and I am currently reading the Betsy-Tacy series. I love the early 1900's setting, the detail of childhood/school days and life in general, and how it shows Betsy's life from the age of five to a newly married woman on the cusp of WW1.

I finished "Fade To Black". It was enjoyable, especially the world building. You don't find unique magic systems too often, but how the author used pain magic was very interesting. I found the MC a bit annoying, but that's really my only complaint about the book.

Now I'm reading the "Mouse Guard: The Black Axe" by David Petersen. This is technically the 3rd volume in the series, but there is another book collecting a series of guard stories. I've loved the books so far, so I'm looking forward to reading this one.
