This is pretty much just like Admiral Thrawn's "movies seen recently" post, but with books instead. Same rules apply.

I'll start:
Zombie Lover 10/10 written by Piers Anthony

Day by Day Armageddon

I read it in one sitting. Quite good. A daily journal of a survivor.

What kind of survival book is it? If its zombies, then I just started reading World War Z, its a compilation of a bunch of different Zombie stories

Zombies, yes.

World War Z is a zombie version of Studs Terkel's "The Good War". It is an oral history and through the accounts given, a clear picture of the zombie war is given. It is quite good, I've read it several times.

Super-long post alert!

Ender's Game
Orson Scott Card
I've now read this book 7 times. I never get bored of it. Card's mastery of not only prose, but also what I enjoy reading about, is totally complete. If you have a few spare dollars, buy this book.
10/10

Speaker for the Dead
Orson Scott Card
Sequel to Ender's Game. No less of a story (in fact I think it might be more so), and equally masterful writing. The characters are sometime difficult to keep track of, however. Also a bit of a thriller.
9/10

Xenocide
Orson Scott Card
Sequel to Speaker for the Dead. Picks up where Speaker left off, and continues the with building on the ever-increasing tension the last book starts. The struggle of good people making very difficult decisions, no less heartfelt than the last book.
9/10

Children of the Mind
Orson Scott Card
Sequel to Xenocide. With the biggest issue of the last two books resolved, a new one pops up almost immediately. Once again, good, and now some bad, people must make difficult calls. Card's complete grip on what he's writing is wonderful. Another must-read.
8/10

Siddhartha
Herman Hesse
I read this for a school book report. Herman Hesse has been described as one of the greatest writers of all time. This might be true, but he only had me hooked because he has a control over his writing that none of my teenage peers do. His grasp of prose is second almost to none. He language is as smooth as silk, but heavy in volume. A difficult read, and not something I would have normally chosen.
5/10

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Douglas Adams
Douglas Adams. Need I say more?
10/10

Childhood's End
Arthur C. Clark
Arthur C. Clark's entry onto this list is possibly one of the most prophetic book I've ever read. While not a prophecy itself, it speaks of the human mind and how it is flawed. An amazingly written story, and one of the most chilling I've ever read.
9/10

For Crying Out Loud! The World According to Clarkson, Vol 3
Jeremy Clarkson
I know, technically not a book. A collection of Jeremy Clarkson's weekly articles from the beginning of 2006 to the end of 2007. Clarkson's cynicism closely matches my own, and his complete disregard for political correctness is a welcome refresher from this world of PC where every word has to analyzed before it can be spoken.
8/10

Jingo
Terry Pratchett
Terry Pratchett is today's Douglas Adams, even though he was writing before Adams died. Pratchett's satire touches on everything: Racism, sexism, sterotypes, war, religon, magic, physics... Every single piece of satire he creates is amazing, and his Discworld creations are the best. Jingo is, in my opinion, one of the better books. Even though he has now written over thrity Discworld novels.
10/10

The Picture of Dorain Gray
Oscar Wilde
A very well-written book. I didn't spend much time analyzing it, so not much to say. Wilde is a fantastic writer.
8/10

The Thrawn trilogy
Timothy Zhan
The writer of the first ever Expanded Universe Star Wars book, and the creator my namesake. Zhan has a way of saying much in few words, and the Thrawn Trilogy is still the greatest EU story of the entire SW Universe.
10/10

Gulliver's Travels
Johnathan Swift
Swift's satire is almost always political, which doesn't really appeal or even apply to me. The way he satires subjects is usually by being so outrageously offensive, silly, disgusting, ect., to the point where I find myself not-so-strangely uninterested. Read 'A Modest Proposal' to see what I mean. The only thing going for this book is the quality of Swift's writing.
4/10

wow you read a lot Thrawny >.>

Like Water for Chocolate

A novel written in months that contains mexican recipes in the very beginning. Rich in magical realism, love, and symbolism of food. Not the best book ever, but decent.
7/10 (That's nice on my scale!)

All of those in the last 6 weeks. I find it a brilliant way to waste my teachers' time.
