The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi .What happens when bio-terrorism becomes a tool for corporate profits? And what happens when this forces humanity to the cusp of post-human evolution? This is a tale of Bangkok struggling for survival in a post-oil era of rising sea levels and out-of-control mutation.
The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi (2010): In a future of rising water levels, bioengineered plagues, widespread food shortages, and retrotechnology, calories have become currency. An encounter between Anderson Lake, AgriGen's "calorie man" in Bangkok, and Emiko, a genetically engineered member of the New People (and titular “windup girl”), sets off a cataclysmic chain of events.
The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi | Anderson Lake is a company man, AgriGen's Calorie Man in Thailand. Under cover as a factory manager, Anderson combs Bangkok's street markets in search of foodstuffs thought to be extinct, hoping to reap the bounty of history's lost calories. There, he encounters Emiko...
The Windup Girl | Paolo Bacigalupi. To be honest, I only got 50 pages in. I didn't like the style of writing and the characters failed to compel me. The plot may have gotten interesting but I was having trouble getting into it.
The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi. In a world of rising sea levels and out-of-control mutation, calories have become currency and multinational businesses search for the latest useful mutation.

Worth Reading, Books Worth, Brides, Movies, Favorite Book, Princesses, William Goldman, The Princess Bride
Just read this. This author is clearly somewhat nuts, but the book was fantastic. #theprincessbride #williamgoldman
The Princess Bride by William Goldman was my favorite book as a young girl. I still love it and the movie!
Forever Reread: The Princess Bride by William Goldman - If you love the movie, read this book. It is so awesome!
The Princess Bride , by William Goldman i love THIS BOOK! if you ever thought the movie was was just a parody than you are missing out, this book is so FUNNY!
The Princess Bride was even better as a book. I know! I didn't think it was possible either! interesting fact: S. Morgenstern is really William Goldman (the guy who directed the movie)
The Princess Bride by William Goldman. This book is just as fantastic as the movie! And some parts the film took word-for-word from the novel!! I love it! (+13)
The Princess Bride, by William Goldman. AWESOME book. I prefer the book to the movie, but the movie did it a nice justice.
In college, I actually did a research paper on the Princess Bride movie vs. the book. They are both wonderful, having both been written by William Goldman. But I think the book has an edge.
Worth reading if only to better understand the movie.

Ender's Game - by Orson Scott Card My FAVORITE fiction book of all time! Nuff said. Can't wait for the movie in 2014. Don't screw it up, Hollywood.
Ender's Game by Orson Scott. Card The Earth's population has been decimated by an alien attack. Earth must strike back. But an army of adults would be too old by the time they reached the enemy deep in space. An army of children must be trained. And Ender will be their leader. Image taken from Macmillan.
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card: an excellent piece of science fiction that does not underestimate its young audience. This book raises a lot of very good questions about morality, human nature, and the relativity of age, while also kicking a lot of people in the face and blowing some stuff up.
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card - as reviewed by Grace of Books Without Any Pictures - winner of the Hugo and Nebula Award for Science Fiction.
Ender's Game (Ender's Saga, #1) by Orson Scott Card. First book I ever read by him, and still one of my favorite books.
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. A serious favorite book! Any s/f fan who hasn't read it is seriously behind in her/his reading. Card builds a believable world out in space where humans are locked in an intergalactic cold war with an insectoid alien race. We visit this world through the eyes of a young military cadet who was bred for it without his knowledge. Great for young and old alike. Excellent for adults, doable for YA.
Orson Scott Card- Ender's Game. One of my all time favorite books/ series.
'Ender's Game' by Orson Scott Card. My favorite book.

DONE - Reading "American Gods" by Neil Gaiman. Only 1/4 of the way through and I am in love. A must read
American Gods by Neil Gaiman- There are really no words to describe my love for this book, or for Neil Gaiman for that matter.
Everything Neil Gaiman writes is magical, and American Gods is no exception. This dark and twisted book follows Shadow, a recently released convict, in his work as a bodyguard for the mysterious Mr. Wednesday. Harry Potter fans of the darker elements in the series will be drawn to this folklore-inspired creation of an American mythology. | 15 Books As Enchanting As The Harry Potter Series, Since You've Already Read Them A Million Times | Bustle
American Gods -neil Gaiman Trapped in a hidden fortress tucked between towering mountains and a frozen sea, Solveig, along with her brother the crown prince, their older sister, and an army of restless warriors, anxiously awaits news of her father's victory at battle. But as winter stretches on, and the unending ice refuses to break, terrible acts of treachery soon make it clear that a traitor lurks in their midst.

The extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller that is now a major motion picture, Markus Zusak's unforgettable story is about the ability of books to feed the soul. It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still. Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books.
By Marcus Zusak. It's an amzing novel that follows a girl in Nazi Germany from Death's point of view. It's clever and well written and tear inducing at points. It gives an interesting insight into Nazi Germany and is compelling to read. The kiss. . . So sad. www.adealwithGodb...

The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien. Admittedly, I never read it myself, because nothing could compare to my father reading it to me when I was a kid.
I just finished reading this for the first time, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I am looking forward to starting the LOTR trilogy soon :)
The Hobbit- J.R.R. Tolkien A classic, and Tolkien is unarguably one of the absolute greats of the fantasy genre. Without his Lord of the Rings books, the world of fantasy writing today would have an utterly different landscape. I'm re-reading The Hobbit this summer to refresh my memory before the film comes out.
"Victory after all, I suppose! Well, it seems a very gloomy business." - J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit
If the Lord of the Rings trilogy is intimidating, start with The Hobbit! Bonus, the movie is coming out soon.
The Hobbit. Read it before the movie comes out. You will not regret it :)
