Just Finished:

Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein - The quintessential military SF book. Read it. Seriously.

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher - Young Adult novel dealing with suicide, shitty high school issues, and more all done in a unique manner.

Poison Study and Magic Study by Maria Snyder (who teaches at my grad school) - Fantasy novels with nonstop action and intrigue, complete with poison and, yes, magic. Both books were awesome, by the way. Don't let the fact that they're in the Romance section fool you.


Currently Reading:

This Is Your Brain On Music by Daniel Levitin - The science behind why we like the music we do and just how integrated it is with our mental wiring.

Got Fight? by Forrest Griffin - Want to learn about MMA (among other things) from one of the craziest dudes in the UFC? Read this and laugh your ass off in the process.


On Deck:

Fire Study by Maria Snyder - The continuation of Yelena's story in the Study Series.


Recently Purchased:

Darkfever, Bloodfever, and Faefever by Karen Marie Moning - Part of the Fever Series dealing with deadly Fae and the fate of the world. Also in the Romance section - but again, don't let that fool you. Read their respective reviews: #1, #2 (I haven't gotten around to reviewing Faefever yet). Dreamfever comes out in August (whoohoo!)

No-Bake Cookies by Camilla Saulsbury - The title pretty much says it all.

Physics of the Impossible by Michio Kaku - Loved this book so much, finally had to buy it. Read the review here.
