Recent books read and recommending

Books I have read recently and which I heartily recommend.

I have been burning through the Scott Westerfeld books lately. I know they are intended for young adults, but they are entertaining enough for an adult (if a bit light), and I do like the way he sneaks some learning into the books.

  • Midnighters #1: The Secret Hour (Midnighters) by Scott Westerfeld

  • Midnighters #2: Touching Darkness (Midnighters) by Scott Westerfeld

  • Midnighters #3: Blue Noon (Midnighters) by Scott Westerfeld

  • So Yesterday by Scott Westerfeld

  • Pretties by Scott Westerfeld

  • Peeps by Scott Westerfeld

  • Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

  • The Plot to Save Socrates was an intricate yet interesting time travel novel, while Anansi Boys serves as a sort of sequel to American Gods, a must read book by Neil Gaiman.

  • The Plot to Save Socrates by Paul Levinson

  • Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman

  • I always like to spice some of my reading lists up with some math and science.

  • Aliens In The Backyard: Plant And Animal Imports Into America by John Leland

  • The Mystery of the Aleph : Mathematics, the Kabbalah, and the Search for Infinity by Amir D. Aczel

  • These Stephen Baxter novels were enjoyable rereads and have inspired some comments.

  • Manifold: Time by Stephen Baxter

  • Manifold: Space by Stephen Baxter

  • Manifold: Origin by Stephen Baxter
