Hey everybody!
My name is Leya, and I'm a sophomore at Wake Forest University in North Carolina, going for a Math and PoliSci double major. What do I do in my spare time? I play Contrabass Clarinet, do ridiculous amounts of community service, work on computers for food, write poems, short stories, and novels, and I paint and draw.

I got into reading Chuck Palahniuk when I was a junior in high school. I watched Fight Club after prom, and fell in love with it. I read the book the summer afterwards and became hooked. So far, I've read Fight Club, Choke, Lullaby, Haunted, Rant, Snuff, and Invisible Monsters. Next up is going to be Tell-All. After that, I'm not sure. It just depends on what my local bookstore will have next time I go there. I think my favorite would be Snuff, just because the ending is freaking hilarious.

Let's see...other authors and poets and other forms of expression that I'm interested in (I'm going with what I have on my dorm bookshelf...lol):
The Great Gatsby
The Republic
I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell
Sex and the City
Manifesto by anonymous (http://www.duke.edu/~jgj4/manifestoflyer.pdf)
{insert all the Palahniuk books I have read here}
Watchmen
300
I am Legend
V for Vendetta
1984
Angels and Demons
The Da Vinci Code
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Where the Wild Things Are
Pride and Prejudice
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
T.S. Eliot's Complete Collection
A Collection of Franz Kafka's short stories

I hope that I get the chance to get to know a few of you.
here's to the interesting discussions to come!
