The Circle Opens: Shatterglass
by Tamora Pierce
Tamora Pierce is a favorite author of mine, but The Circle Opens quartet isn't quite the same as her other books. They're more like mystery novels, and has this particular book contains coincidences that seem a little too unlikely to me. Regardless, it's a good read, and I'm enjoying it.

I watched The Last Samurai with some friends over the weekend, and when I told my mom all about it she suggested that I read Shogun. Shogun is a book that I've been interested in before, so I went to Library2Go (an online library) and am listening to it now. It's quite interesting. I suspect that I might get bogged down in it if I were actually reading it instead of listening to it, though.

Fantasy, graphic novel
A friend introduced me to the prequel to these books, Rose, and I liked it so much that I had to read the Bone series. I've read books one through four, and am currently waiting to get ahold of book number five from the library.
These books are hilarious, and because they're meant to be read as one big story rather than being separated into nine books the ending of each book is a gigantic cliff hanger.
