I've been reading some Murakami lately and Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman is absolutely amazing! I think my favorite was "Man-Eating Cats" or something like that... I've got boundless enthusiasm for Murakami's short stories. I hope to read them in the actual Japanese on day :)

And OMG, vampire novels/science fiction - I'm glad I'm not the only one who can't stand either genre! (Though, there are definitely some really good science fiction novels out there - I adore dystopian fiction, for example, but some people consider that a separate genre.)

It's so much happiness to read Murakami. I really enjoyed all of that short stories. 'A Shinagawa Monkey' was really exciting & in a different way totally funny.
Ahh...that Cat Story. Absolutely unique (:

Ya, I've read the Twilight series & that's really enough. And I can't stand Moonlight/True Blood blah blah I can't see those series anymore. So...um...trashy?!?

Ah, the question was would never enjoy XD I enjoy Science Fiction but not so much. Although I really liked Artemis Fowl. I've read the first 3 books and there were really cool. Its Phantastik/SciFi.

"A Shinagawa Monkey" was very good, too - it was so disjointed, but it somehow really made sense.

I read the first Twilight book looong before the fandom started, and was amazed at how much epic phail it was even back then :p A couple of my friends recommended it to me and within the first chapter I was pretty much WTFing at what a loser character Bella was -_-;

...lol. I take it you read the question wrong? Ah well :p I liked Artemis Fowl too, though I think I've only read one or two books. My little cousin has a collection, so sometimes when I visit her I randomly skim through one of the books!

Ya, correct. The Monkey thing was so unexpected but the story was still great. I can't really describe it...all the stories were simply absurd (a great absurd) BUT you have to read "between the lines". And then it's really plausible (=

I liked the first book. Edward here, Jasper there. Really nice. But the other 2 books were okay/absurd/weird....I don't know but I know I've enough and to spare :D

I guess yes and no. I'm just not into that whole sci-fi stuff. I just liked Artemis Fowl & Otherland was okay. I've heard the first eBook.

O cool. I just have the first 3 books but I will buy the others,too. I have to know how the whole spectacle will ends. Ah, you have to read the second book. It's exciting (=

Ah, I saw that 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' is one of your favorite books.
I'm currently reading it :D I never read that book before and I really like it.
+ I'm going to the theatre play "Dorian Gray" on next friday. It's an english play and I'm really looking forward to see it (:

Definitely agreeing you on Murakami :p

Lol. I don't think I've quite got the appetite for anything Twilight-related, tbh.

The second book was The Arctic Indcident, right? I thought it was very good - it was actually the first of the series that I had read, and it left me wanting more!

And Dorian Gray is amazing. I think I read it back in middle school or something and it completely and absolutely scared and floored me - scarier than most of the so-called "horror" novels out there! I've been a big fan of Oscar Wilde ever since. Hopefully the play does justice to the novel!

Ya right. It really was very good. I'm looking forward to read the other 3 books!

Yaaa...he really is. That reading is so amusing! O, Dorian. Adorable character!
I hope that,too. I'm so excited to it. Will tell you my impression.

Have a nice weekend (:
