I've been trying to catch up in Detective Conan. So far I got to chapter 556. I started to read Highschool of the Dead as well. It isn't as long so I can finish it pretty quickly and then continue on with Detective Conan. As for American books, I've been reading the Lorien Legacy series. The movie I Am Number Four made me want to check out the book and I'm glad I did. Finished I Am Number Four and now I am on The Power of Six.
After, a short story anthology about the end of the world. It's done by 19 authors. Interesting so far, but I'm only 3 stories in. I usually don't like short stories but I'm doing preliminary research for a writing assignment.
I'm currently on a Dragonriders of Pern kick. Mom has most of the books, being a long-time fan, and since she's a librarian the rest are fairly easy to obtain. Mostly I'm a sci-fi fan. I read Tanya Huff's Blood series and the Smoke series, David Weber's Prince Roger and Bahzell series, Rick Riordan's books, and a lot of other assorted stuff. Too many to name. My bookcase is buried under books, and I have three more boxes of them under the bed.
I'm currently reading various mangas, such as the HGSS Chapters of PokeSpe, the first few copies of Soul Eater I have, and the rest of the FullMetal Alchemist manga. I'm also reading up on A Clockwork Orange because I just want to.
I'm in the middle of reading Reached. It's the third in the Matched series, and it is really good. I must say that I take a great liking to dystopian fiction. I'm also at book 4 of the Percy Jackson series, which is on hold because it is checked out of my library.
