currently reading this side of paradise by f. scott fitzgerald--i think he was terrific.  i read mostly classics and i can't really name a genre in particular, kind of just slice of life, you know.  i don't know what to choose as my all-time favourites but the best thing i read recently was the strange case of dr. jekyll and mr. hyde by robert louis stevenson.

I just finished a book called GROWLAND by a local small author :)

SMALL GREAT THINGS by Jodi Picoult is also really good, especially the ending.

In fiction:

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien

Dragonlance: Dragons of Winter Night by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman

Fantasy, as you may have guessed.

In non-fiction:

Will soon be starting Shiva: Stories and Teachings from the Shiva Mahapurana by Mataji Devi Vanamali

I don't really have one. I suppose Gods and Myths of Northern Europe by H.R. Ellis Davidson comes closest.

My interest in reading ranges. It depends on what I'm into at the time. Generally I like mythology, esp. Norse and Hindu, Jungian psychology, Western Esotericism (academic and practicing) and Yoga, philosophy and practice.

I didn't know DEAR EVAN HANSEN was a book!  Who's the author?

I'm reading The Three Body Problem by Liu Cixin, pretty good so far, writing style sometimes a bit weird but I'm guessing that is a result of it being translated. Reccomend. [also it won a Hugo Award in 2015]

I read sci fi and fantasy mostly.

It's about a woman from LA who moves in with a marijuana grower, back when that sort of thing was more iffy than it is now.

fiction and fantasy, always. never realistic fiction, i'd rather dive into a world that doesn't exist. im always a sucker for well-made romance (think Every Day) and occasionally dystopia

Its kinda dated but ready player one Is a very good read if your into retro stuff

Yeah since most references in it were a part of my youth I liked it for nostalgic reasons 😅

I’m reading ‘Praktijkgerichte ontwikkelingspsychologie - Van wieg tot hangplek’ at the moment. It is a book about the psychological development of a child ‘from cradle to hangout’. Interesting but also a bit dry. I’m mainly interested in the bit about children aged 6/7, since I have been asked to teach this age group art classes and I have very little experience with them as I mainly teach older children. Just trying to get a feel for what I’m going to work with really.

My all-time favourite books are the Discworld novels by Terry Pratchett. I also really like pretty much everything Brandon Sanderson writes, with ‘The emperor’s soul’ being my favourite. I’m getting his new Wax and Wayne book ‘The lost metal’ next week for Sinterklaas so that’s going to be my next read :)

My favourite genres are fantasy and science fiction.
