Re: Community Room

Thanks they are great books aren't they! I'm on The Order of the Phoenix now and they just keep getting better and better.  I've never seen one of the movies either so most of the stuff is new, but of course I know a few things that are going to happen from all the hype :smileyhappy:

Re: Community Room

I just finished reading Alice I Have Been which is fictional account using what facts there are about the girl Alice in Wonderland was based on.  I am almost done with Knit, Purl, Die a mystery novel and also working on Eternal on the Water for another FL club.  My next book to start is Veracity which is a little different than my usual reads.  I like to challenge myself not to read the same genre all the time.

 

 

I think I mentioned in a different post that joining my first FL book club got me motivated to start a blog.  This week I am trying my first ever contest.  If you are interested in entering to win one of five copies of "Corked" come on by :  http://bookbookseverywhere.blogspot.com/2010/01/giveaway-corked-by-kathryn-borel.html

Re: Community Room

I just finished reading Fallen by Lauren Kate and it was an amazing book. It was one where when you start reading you keep reading so that you can find out what happens next, but slow at the same time. I loved reading it and trying to piece everything together along with the main character. Great book and I definitely recommend it. Can't wait for the second book!!

Breaking Dawn  I just finished this book about 3 days ago and it was wonderful. I would have to say this is the best book out of the entire twilight series. It includes good action scenes and romance scenes. If you loved eclipse and thought it was the best book, get ready to hold on to the edge of your seat for Breaking Dawn!

Re: Community Room

Wings  I just read wings and it was a really good fantasy book. I thought it was a great story plot and I absolutely loved the ending of the book. I am hoping for a sequel to come out soon. I really liked how the book ending left you hanging. It made you want to just keep reading through the book. I thought that this was a good book for you fantasy book lovers. It was like Twilight because it talked about myths and what was true and why humans thought that it was true but it wasn't. I suggest this book to readers who like a little bit of romance and fantasy along with a hint of action in it.

The book Wings started off in a totally different direction then the rest of the book and then surprised you with what happens to Laurel. You don't expect it at all until the next few chapters. Now it is a little obvious in the next few chapters what will happen because of the title, but it is great. It isn't exactly the same. I suggest this book and Love it!

Re: Favorite YA books

I read Lips Touch Three Times, it was excellent.  I also just read Ice by Sarah Beth Durst (a take off of the fairy tale East of the Sun and West of the Moon), loved it.

Another great book that is The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness.  I couldn't put it down!

Just started Ruined by Paula Morris, but haven't gotten too far into that.

Re: Favorite YA books

my idea about Breaking Dawn don' t change after I've read. I prefer Eclipse as the best of the saga. In the last book, it's foreseeable what is going to happen. and I think that the book could be thinner. about Stieg Larsson, I've read the trilogy Millenium, and I have to say, the two first books I love them, but the last book, it has too many words maybe. the explanation about Seg...I know it's necessary to understand the story. but it's very boring. the final of the characters I liked.

Re: Favorite YA books

I just finished Undone by Brooke Taylor and really enjoyed it. I wasn't so sure about reading it but in the end it was well worth it. It was one of those books that got me thinking and I would reccomend it.

Re: Community Room

I love The Historian as well. It is very well written with a lot of in depth detail. I love how many legends and myths the writer includes in the story. I found a few parts difficult to get through but I plan to reread it this summer. Has anyone read Elizabeth Kostova's second book? I haven't read it yet but would like to know what you think of it before I buy it.

I'm currently reading Elizabeth Kostova's The Historian with my school's book club. I didn't think I'd like it, but I absolutely LOVE it, its up on my favorites list!  It's a little lengthy, but a very easy and fast read.  It sucks you in and you don't even realize its so long---you don't mind it AT ALL! If you like history and different cultures, this is the book for you because of the vivid descriptions of countries like Turkey. And of course, this book is mainly about VAMPIRES. So if you are a vampire fan...this one is DEFINITELY for you!

Re: Community Room

 

I recently read The Swan Thieves, which is her second book. It's very different from The Historian. Instead of retelling the Dracula story, it focuses on uncovering the reasons behind an artist's apparent mental illness (he attacks a painting at the National Gallery of Art)--reasons that are rooted in a mystery at the heart of French Impressionism. I didn't like it quite as much as The Historian, but it was well-written, and it shares the same method of assembling bits of a hidden story. I would recommend checking it out of the library (or reading the first few pages in the bookstore) to see if you like it before you buy it.
