My current favorite series is the Cirque Du Freak series by Darren Shan. I've also started reading his Demonata series and his new Zom-B series. I think the most arresting thing about Shan's writing is that it grips the reader so hard that when they reach the end they feel like they just went through the wringer a hundred times over.
Stephen King is probably my favorite author. I recently finished The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon and loved it! My favorite Stephen King book has to be Pet Sematary.
I listen to mostly classic rock. My pandora playlists are varied, but most are either 60s-80s pop or rock.
I don't have cable and am, therefore, very behind on television shows. I have to say the ones I watch most often are CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Naruto, Bleach, and I recently started Hamtaro. Otherwise, I watch documentaries on PBS.
