Fables Vol. 2: Animal Farm

Fables, Vol. 2: Animal Farm - Bill Willingham, Mark Buckingham, Steve Leialoha This just keeps getting better and better. I'm hooked!

Fables, Vol. 1: Legends in Exile

Fables, Vol. 1: Legends in Exile - James Jean, Craig Hamilton, Lan Medina, Steve Leialoha, Bill Willingham I'm finally reading Fables and I'm loving it. Started very well.


Stardust - Neil Gaiman It's a nice story. Unfortunately I was a bit disappointed with Gaiman's writing in this one due to my high expectations after having started to read American Gods. I'd recommend this to a kid or to someone who's in need of some light dreamy reading.

Fahrenheit 451 (Spanish Language Edition) (Spanish Edition)

Fahrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury It was my debut with mister Ray Bradbury and I can say I've now "seen what all the fuss is about". Very light reading despite the loaded story. I recommend this reading for those who liked 1984 and/or The Admirable New World. Further more, I'd recommend it to kids who haven't yet read those two books I've just mentioned, for its apparent lightness in dealing with such heavy matters will for sure spread the seed of curiosity in the minds of the younglings. :)

The Bell Jar

The Bell Jar - Sylvia Plath I'm very glad I gave Plath a second chance (after reading her "crossing the water", that I did not like so much). To say The Bell Jar is a sad story is an understatement. It is one of the most depressing things I've ever read. And I loved it. I also survived it. :phew:

Crossing the Water

Crossing the Water - Sylvia Plath Was expecting to like it a bit more than I did, I confess. I had read some quotes of her poems on tumblr, which made me curious to read her work (yes, that happened; deal with it), but this left me a bit disappointed. Maybe I started with the wrong Plath's book. I'm giving her another chance, with The Bell Jar.

The Iron Duke (A Novel of the Iron Seas)

The Iron Duke -  Meljean Brook I liked it very much. It was the first steampunk piece that I've read and what a starting it was in the genre. I devoured it, with some little pauses to breathe from the excitement.I think it'd survive without the "bed" as one of the main characters. In fact, I'd like to read something like this without the smut. But then again, maybe I wouldn't have read it so fast. *blushes* I'll definitely read the anthologies later.- A tip of the hat to Joana Lima for telling me about it.
