2012 (in more or less chronological order)
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (currently reading)
Knock by Fredric Brown – Beautiful short story. Also known for starting the shortest horror story of only two sentences and three ellipses…
Starship Troopers by Robert Heinlein – Interesting story. Made me think about what life would be like as a marine.
Wool by Hugh Howie – Absolutely phenomenal short story. This has pretty much redefined my conception of how compelling a short story could be.
The Giver by Lois Lowry – Great book, I couldn’t put it down. There was a rather haunting scene in there which I think will be with me awhile.
The Complete Works of H. P. Lovecraft (available as a free download – thanks Cthulhuchick!), of which I have read:
Beyond the Wall of Sleep
Event Horizon [Kindle Single] by Scott McElhany – Interesting story about a time-traveller going to the future after the rapture.
The Southern Vampire Mysteries (Books 1-8) by Charlaine Harris – Trashy, trashy stories but help me! I had to finish them!
