    Italo Calvino - Invisible Cities.

    It's possibly my favourite book, now that I've got into it. It's about Marco Polo at the court of Kublai Khan telling him about the cities he's visited, except there's a twist in the cities. It's awesomely poetic, and is split into different books as time goes on. It's quite short though, think "on the train reading"; can dip in and out of it and such. Quite deep sometimes too.

    Beautiful by Amy Reed
    68 Knots by Michael Robert Evans
    Dawn by Kevin Brooks

    They're all pretty good books. Although, to be honest, I'm a little annoyed by some of the characters in both '68 Knots' and 'Beautiful' Just something I've noticed over the weeks that I've been reading the books.

    The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.

    Despite seeing the films years ago, I haven't got around to reading the books until now. I loved the Fellowship of the Ring, and am finding The Two Towers just as good.

    What I've read so far is brilliant, his childhood and his time in the war. Really heartwrenching at times.
