I've contemplated picking up that series a few times now, but I've never actually done it. It seems interesting but I'm not sure...

I'm re-reading The Time Travelers Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. I think most people who love this series would like this book. It's basicly a beautiful romance but with a little time traveling thrown in for good measure. It's wonderful!
Ooh, you should read Uglies! I've only read the first one, but my friend is going to swap me Pretties for Twilight this weekend. ^_^ I really liked it. Not nearly as much as Twilight, but it's different. Kind of sci-fi. I didn't like it at first, but when I couldn't put it down, I realized I liked it more than I thought. :P
The original part of this convo happened earlier this month but I just wanted to say that I am about 3/4 through with Uglies and I do really like it! Mostly because he branched off of the Brave New World idea of classes of people and being "programmed" to think a certain way, etc. It's very much a sci-fi social satire.

i am not reading anything right now because i can not find a good book to keep my mind occupied. that has been a problem after reading twilight, new moon, and eclipse. \
however, i really want to read where the heart is and the honk and holler. by billie letts. i read shoot the moon which was also by him and i really liked it so maby i will like these 2 books.
I was already past trying to live through one week at a time, or even on day. I was fighting to make it through a single hour. It was only a matter of time - and not much of it- before I showed up at your window and begged you to take me back. I'd be happy to beg now, if you'd like that.
I LOVE EDWARD CULLEN

I started to read the Uglies, and then I put it down because someone told me Scott Westerfeld always leaves his endings really open in the end, making you wonder how it really ended, and I hate those types of books. I've also got the Midnighters, which I loved when I was reading it, but also put that down for the same reason. So basically, my question is, does he really leave his endings THAT open? Like, to the point where you want to throw the book against the wall out of furiousity of not knowing how it all really ended? Or is it not that bad, once you finish any of his books?

It seems like we are very similar in what we read! (even if our ages vary!)

I just finished A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly: A great book with a strong (smart) female lead, light romance, and great writing. Pick it up!

I've moved on to Uglies-- I know, its long overdue. I'm drawn in, but not quite addicted yet. If I like it, I'll move through the series.

I agree w/ those on here-- The Timetraveler's Wife is SOOOO good and so is The Lovely Bones.
