Do you like that book? I thought it was really really EXTREMELY boring. Well, the first...three chapters were...I didn't really give it much of a chance, I suppose. I think I'll try to reread it, but I doubt this time will be much better than the last.

I had to write a report on that book for my GRANDMA. Yeah, I know. But I get money for the reports so it's all good. But I just watched the movie instead of actually read it... :oops:

well, i'm always reading either twilight, new moon, or eclipse. i just pick it up whenever i feel like it, which is alot. right now it's twilight.

i am also rereading a great and terrible beauty, by libba brey. super good book!

i just finished irish hearts, by nora roberts. very cute love story! has horses in it.

and i'm on the waiting list for book of a thousand days and austenland, by shannon hale. the list is HUGE! i think it's bacause stephenie mentioned them...

oh! i'm listening to the book on tape of phantom of the opera! it's one of my favorite movies, so i figured id give the book a try. it's a whole lot dofferent, and a bit confusing, but it's good. it's even better if you pretend it's real :wink:

that's all. for now...

I feel so bad for you. I barely made it through that book.

I'm barely making it through it right now. The fact that it takes place in the French Revolution and that I'm going to cover that in my European History class is helping me get a little bit into it. I would rather read something else for Wolrd Lit. class (we have a list we can chose from), but Tale Of Two Cities is required so I'm getting it over with now.

I'm in the middle of Nicholas Nickleby, and its only my second Dickens, and I can see how in style its similar to The Tale of Two Cities, but Nicholas Nickleby is ridiculously funny and so easy to read. I love reading the names aloud to my mother, to which she laughs and says "only in England."

I noticed a few posts ago people talking about Wuthering Heights; totally one you have to stick with, and there's moments you have to force yourself to read, but at the end you'll be glad you did.

I am rereading Twilight and New Moon while I wait for my friend to finish my copy of Eclipse so I can reread that. But I am also reading a book called 'Go Ask Alice' it is an actual diary of a 15 year old girl who was drug user. It's about her downward spiral into drug abuse that took her away from her loving family and comfortable home to the mean streets of the city. A journey that took away her youth, innocence and her life.

I'm reading Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr. It's kindof wierd but it has a lot of action in it. The cover it also very pretty (main reason why I bought it).

At the moment, I am reading or have just finished several books.

I just read the two Libba Bray books, A Great and Terrible Beauty and Rebel Angels. Both were very good, but I particularly liked the second book. Now I just have to wait till December for the third book.

Last night I finished Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. At first I was a little wary of the book, but then it grew on me and I liked it. I think there is supposed to be another book after it.

Now I am reading Marked. I just started it so I can't really give an opinion on it so much.

Then for my book club I am reading The Unbearable Lightness of Being and it is slow going. It just doesn't seem to hold my interest.

I need to finid alot of books to fill up my time between now and next August!
