Just finished reading:

The Bell Jar - Sylvia Plath - Jesus this has to be my favourite book now, the way she writes just left me feeling so depressed. I would recomend this to anyone.
Cracked up to be - Courtney Summers - This is a nice book, about a girl who used to be perfect in everything, but then just throws it away in a self destructive cycle, wont say too much.
Thirteen Reasons Why - Jay Asher - Amazing plot line. It is about a girl who kills herself but before that records her final words onto tape and sends them to people who all caused her to commit suicide. And it is from the perspective of one of the people who is one the 13 people that affected the girl.

At the moment I am reading:

Let The Right One In - John Ajvide Lindqvist
The complete works of Oscar Wilde - lol and this does mean complete, at nearly 1000 pages it includes all his stories, poems and plays.
The Catcher in the Rye - J.D. Salinger
Ariel - Sylvia Plath - An anthology of her poems, many of which were written shortly before her suicide.

And I bought the other day:

The Whitsun Weddings - Philip Larkin
Collected Poems of Ted Hughes
Waiting for Godot - Samuel Beckett
Mrs. Dalloway - Virginia Woolf
The Driver's Seat - Muriel Spark

Histoires Ecologiques, an anthology of Sci-Fi short stories about ecology. Nothing more Doom, as all the tales here are all along the theme of future dystopia, with some very pessimistic views

I wonder if the forum user above has yet finished reading Let The Right One In, The Complete works of Oscar Wilde, The Catcher in the Rye and Ariel by Sylvia Plath and got round to starting The Whitsun Weddings, The Collected Poems of Ted Hughes, Waiting for Godot, Mrs. Dalloway and The Driver's Seat by Muriel Spark?
I am currently still reading the supplements from Saturday's paper. Plus a story book.

Ecce Homo, you say?Well, I am just at the begginng(I'm in a very busy week now, don't have much time read ), but until now, it's interesting.It's a self analysis of Nietzsche own life and works, and he makes a kind of synthesis of his ideas.He talk about his influences, his lifestyle, the development of his character, which turned him in the that man he was , and so on.
I wish I had more to say, but for know, I can only give a vague description like that.

Okay, well when you've read a little more I'd like to know a bit more about it. What made you pick it up in the first place? Have you read much else of his writing? What is it in Nietzsche that you find appealing?
