Just read Pickman's Model and The Thing on the Doorstep.  My Lovecraft reading list so far:

The Dunwich Horror
Call of Cthulhu
Herbert West- Reanimator
Cool Air
Dagon
The Colour Out of Space
The Beast in the Cave
Hypnos
Pickman's Model
The Thing on the Doorstep


I need to finish reading The Shadow Over Innsmouth and I need to read The Haunter of the Dark.  Thankfully, most are short stories and the longer ones are novellas, so I can read through them in about a day or two.  I can also find them all online, which makes things easier.

The Dunwich Horror was great and still remains my favorite.  I definitely recommend starting with that one, as Lovecraft wrote it as more of a serial and it has a more pulpy prose.  Herbert West- Reanimator was also a good one, and it absolutely nothing like the schlock of the movie.  I enjoyed Pickman's Model, and it was quite... weird.

Picked up Mistborn as well as The Way Of Kings.
They're both abso-freakin'-lutely fantastic.
You can read Mistborn online Here, and I highly suggest getting the latter at the library or something.

I love you almost as much as I love booty parades.

I read Haunted Asylums by E. R. Vernor.  The book talked about fifty old sanitariums and their histories more than any actual hauntings.  Quite fascinating.

Still reading The Hero with a Thousand Faces.

I implore everyone to read it; Joseph Campbell uses psychology to connect reality and mythological motifs in extraordinary ways.

The Space Vampires by Colin Wilson

With a cheesy title like that, I had to check it out.  Not bad so far.

Oh, and speaking of necromancy... *Raises thread from the dead as a space vampire zombie*

Picking A Feast for Crows back up. I had kinda read myself to the point of being burnt out a year ago, and after the break, and especially with the new season of Game of Thrones out (at least the 4 episodes that leaked) I'm totally all about getting back into it. I'm about halfway through already anyway, and then it's onto Dance of Dragons and my favorite characters Tyrion and Jon!

FEELS  ;^;Which has the massive scrotums?
