    Title: The awakening of Intelligence
    Author: Jiddu Krishnamurti
    Type of book: Educational
    Number of pages: 538 pages

    About the book: This comprehensive record of Krishnamurti’s teachings is an excellent, wide-ranging introduction to the great philosopher’s thought. With among others, Jacob Needleman, Alain Naude, and Swami Venkatasananda, Krishnamurti examines such issues as the role of the teacher and tradition; the need for awareness of ‘cosmic consciousness; the problem of good and evil; and traditional Vedanta methods of help for different levels of seekers.

    I would highly suggest this book, I am only halfway through and it has opened my eyes to many things; some I knew others I didn't. Overall great book to get you thinking.

    Title of book: Dark Gold
    Type Of Book: Hmm... Romantic (part of a series-Carpathian)
    Author: Christine Feehan
    Number of Pages: 320 page

    About the book:
    Was he a man…Or a miracle? Alexandria Houton would sacrifice anything-even her life-to protect her orphaned little brother. But when both encountered unspeakable evil in the swirling San Francisco mists, Alex could only cry to heaven for their deliverance…

    And out of the darkness swooped Aidan Savage, a golden being more powerful, more mysterious, than any other creature of the night. The ageless Carpathian male snatched them from a hideous fate. But was Aidan a miracle…or a monster? Alex's salvation…or her sin? If she surrendered to Aidan's savage, unearthly seduction-gave him the color, the light, the family he craved-would Alex truly save her brother? Or sacrifice more than her life?

    Title of book: Morpheus Road: The Black (book 2 of the Morpheus Road series)
    Author: DJ MacHale
    Type of book: Supernatural/Sci-Fi/Fantasy
    # of pages: 405

    About the book:
    A series about 2 friends, one dies in a horrible accident/murder. Then his ghost comes back to lead the main character to help solve the mystery.

    I'm a huge DJ MacHale fan! Read the whole Pendragon series a while back. This book is really different than those books tho. It's funny tho, because it has some references that only Pendragon fans would understand.

    I read the Hunger Games trilogy in around 2 days because I was so into it. And then when I got to the end of Mockingjay, I was all disappointed because it was such a depressing and just terrible way to end the series. But it would be realistic to end with a bunch of people dying and separating. But I read books because I don't like reality. xD So like I said, really disappointing.
