These are the books I finished recently (*!* marks the really good ones that you should definitely check out):

Naomi Klein – This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate *!*
David Harvey – Seventeen Contradictions and the End of Capitalism
Sandra Bem – Lenses of Gender *!*
David Schutz – Eloquent Science
Laurie Penny – Unspeakable Things *!*
Julia Serano – Whipping Girl: A Transsexual Woman on Sexism and the Scapegoating of Femininity
Stieg Larsson – Millennium trilogy

Rosalind Miles – Who Cooked the Last Supper?: The Women’s History of the World *!*
Naomi Klein – The Shock Doctrine *!*
Allan G. Johnson – Gender Knot *!*
Joan M. Auel – Earth Children series, vols. 1-3 (those are quite good, but I stopped here because I was disappointed about the protagonist’s choice at the end of book 3, so I decided not to read vols. 4-6, not yet anyways)
Rosalind Miles – Guenevere trilogy
Bart D. Ehrman – The Lost Gospel of Judas Iscariot
Tom Digby – Love and War

And some I’m still in the middle of:

James A. Robinson, Daron Acemoğlu – Why nations fail (I have se-e-eerious criticism about this one, so only read it if you are prepared for a bunch of white male historicians’ crappy and biased version of colonialism and politics… bleeeeh)
Charlotte Bronte – Villette (still reading)
Thomas Piketty – Capital in the Twenty-First Century (still reading, it’s pretty thorough…)
Joanne M. Harris – The Gospel of Loki (still reading)
Judith Butler – Gender Trouble (more or less finished but needs to be re-read because it’s a tough read…)
Jill Nagle (Editor) – Whores and Other Feminists (still reading)
Joanna Russ – The Female Man (still reading)
