Twilight Saga is a good read. i actually still need to finish Breaking Dawn. for some reason i stopped and when i saw the movie i realized i had stopped right when the movie did, but i have til Nov to read it so i have time.

i'm having issues with putting the Hunger Games trilogy down. i want to keep reading but if i did that i'd be up all night! such a good series so far!

One of my friend that read the book told me how the quality of the writing is not that great (compared to the other books I've read). So she kind of sold me off from ever reading the books. What do you think Angel? Is the book worth reading considering I've seen the movie and totally hate it. So, it just adds more distaste to the whole franchise (including the books) lol. Most books are significantly better than the movie, is it the same with this? In your opinion, is it worth to give the series a chance?

if you didnt like the movies, you probably wont like the books. as for the quality of writing, its not meant to be an adult novel, but geared toward teens (just like the hunger games, as i recently found out). every persons opinion of the series is different. there have been books others didnt like, that i have enjoyed and vice versa...

It's not the level of the writing but the quality of the writing and thus the book. Tolkien's LOTR, Narnia, and the Giver are middle school level (grade 6 and 7) and they are some of my favourite books that I found was very well written.

i'm not sure many books can compare to those as they are also some of my faves... as far as quality, i cant really give you an answer to that.

I'm reading the Farseer trilogy by Robin Hobb. I finished the first three and now on to the next. By far one of the best book series I've ever read, and I've read a lot of books. The plot is fantastic and you just fall in love with all the characters and have feelings towards them.

My problem is I like films but I find the books have more info in like Harry potter and the half blood prince the book is my fave one

I have only seen new moon of the twilight saga so that is why I wanted the books badly

I love teen books and I'm 23 I just like the writing styles for me but at first I hated new moon and then saw it again and love it

The book was good, the ending was ok. I think King gets so attached to his characters he doesn't know how to say goodbye to them.

Is anybody interested in seeing the Hunger Games movies? Normally wouldn't be my thing, (I thought the books were ok, not great) but I loved Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss) in the movie Winter's Bone. If you guys haven't seen it, check out out, it's amazing. Plus, there are a few scenes I would like to see on film. (Katniss, The Girl On Fire!) I thought the first book was the best one, too, so I wouldn't mind seeing this one.

I just finished reading "The Sisters Brothers". It went on sale for 25 cents during the Google "Play" sale. First book I've read completely on my phone.

I enjoyed it. It had been a while since I read a book.

Yeah, they plan to make them all, probably milk it more by splitting the last one into two parts which is the "in" thing to do now it seems lol. All three books are still on the best seller lists. They're expecting the movie to make more than Twilight.

Winters Bone is great. It should have won the Oscar that year. It's based on a book, too. I want to read that.

Started The Girl Who Plays with Fire last night, starts right up.. At 10% ish right now... feels like it's just picking up where the last left off. No real build up. I like that in a sequel. Sometimes, it's like the sequel touches on so much from the previous book that the first book wasn't even really *required*.

(sure it helps, but you could get the main points without reading it.)
I like the way this one is done.

As long as first one is a box office hit... I'm still salty they killed the golden compass planned sequels

AJ Jacobs - Living Bliblically.
It's an amazing book about a man who works at Esquire Magazine deciding to live his life by the Bible as literally as he possibly can. It's engaging, funny, thought provoking...This is actually my second time reading it but I could read it over and over again.

The first one started really slow for me, I enjoyed it, but it wasn't something that I felt needed to be finished immediately. After the start though, what a page turner. This one starts right up. Maybe a total of three or four pages (usually a paragraph at a time) that referenced the first one.

I'm really digging it.

Finished reading this Got one more in the series to go! I'm currently finishing Jeffrey Archer's Only Time Will Tell. I love most of Archer's work. This one is on the slow and boring side, lol. Half way done and it's starting to get interesting. The plot evolves around the life of this poor bastard child growing up in the 1920s and the story is divided into the perspective of the different characters that interact with the child.

So...Only Time Will Tell is not a stand alone book It's the first book to a trilogy *sigh*. I really don't like following a series after the ups and downs of following the release with Dance with Dragons in Song of Ice and Fire for 4 years.

Finished the Shadow series of the Ender's Game sega...and you know what sucks. 8 books later, I realized that two of the main characters are African in looks >_>; One is from Greek and the other is Islamic.

Right now, I want some romance...so I'm reading Nicholas Sparks. Read Dear John yesterday and today I'm starting At First Sight.

NO. NO NO. NO NO. NO NO.

Nicholas Sparks is one of my favorite books, yet I refuse to read dear john and that other book that was a movie. His best books are by far Safehaven, the lucky one and the choice. Really didn't like the notebook, novel or movie, but safehaven is his best book. Just picked up a bend in the road

haha, I didn't think Dear John was bad...a bit slow. Just curious if all of Sparks' books are from the male's perspective?

I will keep see if I have Safehaven in my ebook collection.

I'm reading the Believe now. I didn't know that the Believer came before At First Sight...so I'm kind of reading the story backward. The first half of At first sight was boring but I didn't expect how the story turn out.

Male perspective wise, I honestly don't remember haha It usually goes back and forth. I won't read Dear John, I just won't. At first site was an excellent book! I was surprised with the story as well. I'm reading a bend in the road at the moment and so far so good. Very happy and content

Finished Darth Plagueius. Story started a bit slow but eventually told the story of Palpatine's apprenticeship under Plagueius. The author seemed to try to impress his readers with his vocabulary. Seemed a bit unnecessary but he did an excellent job of tying all the events together that lead up to the Clone Wars. Recommended for any Star Wars fan.

Reading A Bend in the Road...I believe this will be my last Nicholas Spark book...his stories are way too similar to be much entertaining, lol.

I feel like reading the Troy series by David Gemmell, lol. His only series I haven't read.

Nick, not sure if I ever recommended him to you, but I think you'll like his Drenai Series, which is superb. He's one of the best heroic fantasy writers.

I'm currently reading Airborn by Kenneth Oppel. I know it's a children's book but it was first assigned for class, but now I'm just reading it for pleasure. It really is a fantastic adventure story and I do mean to continue reading the rest of the series to it.

Roze roze roze

You did recommend him to me.... And I hate you LOL>

(not really) I really LOVED that series!! I wish there had been several more

The chronology of the series was a bit hard to follow but I read them all in order and was really sucked into the Drenai World..... I been thinking of checking out some of his other books recently......



What I'm actually reading now is the Farseer Series (thanks chaos3232, lol) i'm halfway through book two and I literally can't put it down... LOVE IT!!

David Gemmell is the Drenai author isn't he? (i forget) But yes, he has a ton of other books that sound pretty interesting.

Wow!! That is weird. After chaos recommended Farseer I started them almost immediately. Good solid books, I'm just past half way point in Royal Assassin. Love the series... apparently there is another series set in that world as well. Need to go to authors website to figure it out/

How far into first book are you? There are a few parts that REALLY stood out to me in that book

I didn't realize that the series I was reading was Farseer. Knowing your reading style, I was going to recommend Robin Hobb to you. I guess Chaos did that already. I just started yesterday and have read 1/4 of the book

Did 'Boy' get his loyalty tested yet?
