    Summer reading...

    So I just finished another book in my Epic Summer Reading Challenge, which makes six novels and one non-fiction book since May 20th.

    My post for today, which I hope ushers in many replies is what should be the next book I read? I enjoy many genres, so just fire away and be sure to include author names so I can find them easily. Foreign authors welcome, as long as I can find English translations of their works.

    Have a great Monday everybody!

    Hey TheCrimsonActuary.

    I would recommend reading Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. I am not sure if you have read this book before in high school, but it's a fantastic novel about the New Age and what could lie ahead in the future. I won't spoil the novel for you, but it's a very great book that I think you'll enjoy a lot.

    Hey! I just finished ready the Magicians Trilogy by Lev Grossman. I though they were fantastic; imagine a combination of Harry Potter and The Chronicles of Narnia but darker and aimed at adults. I loved them, definitely disappointed that their over.

    Or if you wanted to add a non fiction to your list, I've read A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson multiple times. He takes fascinating science and explains it all in a why that blows my mind every time.

    You should definitely check these out! I doubt you'll regret it.

    Happy reading!
