Joyzi This series will get better and better, I grew up reading this book and every year I'm looking forward for the next one. Enjoy reading that!


message 7: by K.D. (new)

K.D. Absolutely I will Joyzi. I will also remember the young you while I read from one book to another. How old were you when you read Book 1?


message 8: by Joyzi (new)

Joyzi I really can't remember it was eons ago and that's why my book review on that was really walang kwenta, I just say I really enjoyed the book blah blah


message 9: by K.D. (last edited Nov 07, 2010 06:13PM) (new)

K.D. Absolutely Shame on me. I am an old man now and still to read the book. I hope my review will be may kuwenta (there is computation ha ha) so I will not be double ashamed at least to you.

I understand. I read Twilight before joining Goodreads. So, I just wrote something on my reviews for those 4 books. Had I read them just this year, the reviews for each would be kilometric considering the I liked them ha ha!


message 10: by Joyzi (new)

Joyzi haha sige now I'm curious to read your review on Twilight


message 11: by Regine (new)

Regine I was 11 when I first the read Harry book, and I finished the 7th book when I was 17 or 18. Rowling was really smart about the books because the characters and her own style of writing mature with her target audience.

Having said that, my older siblings ( the oldest one is 17 years older than I am) also enjoyed reading the books after I was done with them.


message 12: by K.D. (new)

K.D. Absolutely Walang Kwenta (no computation ha ha).

Kasi when I added those books as read, I was adding so many books that I tried to remember so I would have a record of all the books I read since I learned how to read. So, I could not remember the stories in those books anymore. Of course Twilight was an easy one but I normally write how I felt about the book and not like how a detailed professional book reviewer would do it. Then of course, the movie was shown already and since its centered on feeling, I tend to remember the images in the movie while writing those reviews so I just made them short. In short, wala talagang kwenta (really no computation) ha ha


message 13: by K.D. (new)

K.D. Absolutely Thanks for telling me Regine. I feel pressured now. Before leaving home this morning, I was thinking which book to put in my gym bag: Harry Potter or The Red Tent. I sometimes have time to read while resting before leaving the gym.

The Red Tent won. It should have been Harry Potter. However, I am not sure people will not frown on me reading there. An old man reading HP. Late by eons (as Joyzi puts it) of time. When I bought may copy last Saturday the salesclerk said: "ngayon lang babasahin ng anak nyo, sir?". Buti di nya sinabing apo ha ha


message 14: by Joyzi (new)

Joyzi apo hahahahahha


message 15: by K.D. (new)

K.D. Absolutely It's really funny, Joyzi. I should have hid my face in shame. Well, maybe I will just ask my daughter to buy the other books ha ha.


message 16: by Joyzi (new)

Joyzi Haha tama tama parang ako lang yan nung bumili ako ng Lost Hero parang lumaki yung mata nung sales lady 19 years old na ko nabili pa ko ng children's books


message 17: by K.D. (new)

K.D. Absolutely 19 is still okay. Just pretend that you have underdeveloped mental capability. Bring lollipop and lick it in front of the salesclerk.

46 is already too much. I cannot wear adults diaper and pretend that I have Alzheimers!


message 18: by Joyzi (new)

Joyzi lol I can't really imagine myself like that I probably look retarded


message 19: by K.D. (new)

K.D. Absolutely That's the point! That's why you are buying a children's book! ha ha


message 20: by Joyzi (new)

Joyzi lol wala lang dapat hindi yun yung bibilhin ko Hunger Games paperback sana kaso out of stock, tas nakita ko yung Lost Hero sabi ko sa Saleslady miss yun na lang bilhin ko tapos lumaki talaga mata niya, hunger games napunta sa lost hero lol


message 21: by Melissa (Mel) (new)

Melissa (Mel) Well, I was already a grown woman when I started reading this series. I'm not ashamed to admit there were a few times that I stood on line in front of a bookstore at midnight to get the books when they were released. Looking forward to the new movie but very sad that there is only one more movie left!


message 22: by K.D. (new)

K.D. Absolutely Yes, I feel sad to.

Of course, there is the Twilight final movie split into two also.


message 23: by Joyzi (last edited Nov 07, 2010 09:11PM) (new)

Joyzi I'm not really looking forward for Breaking Dawn, I might punch someone in the face(maybe the one sitting beside me inside the cinema) because I was really annoyed by the book


message 24: by K.D. (new)

K.D. Absolutely Why? It is supposed to be where the climax is.


message 25: by Joyzi (new)

Joyzi Hello pedophilia??? and Breaking Dawn was the worst anticlimactic ending I've ever read in my entire life


message 26: by K.D. (new)

K.D. Absolutely Onga noh? Ha ha. You have a point! Why I did not take note of that? I got fixated on the fight scene!


message 27: by Joyzi (new)

Joyzi What fight scene are you talking about? Did I miss reading that part of the book? It was like a bunch of talking and drama


message 28: by K.D. (new)

K.D. Absolutely My dear, did you like Bella's shield?


message 29: by KaiPea (new)

KaiPea Ooh. Will be waiting your review about HP. My parents bought me this book as a pasalubong loooong ago because it is all popular and everyone is talking about it.
I can't say I liked it. I didn't even past the first chapter. I can't seem to enjoy the movie as well.

:P Maybe you can give some push to reread it.


message 30: by K.D. (new)

K.D. Absolutely I am not sure about that too, Kaipea. I am just on page 10 and to be honest, I am a bit bored. I think both of us need that push at this point.

Problem at this point: I know who that "you know who". I saw him in the movie ha ha. No more excitement there! Hay, KaiPea. Why did we not pick and read this 10 years ago?


message 31: by Joyzi (new)

Joyzi I don't like Bella's shield I think that really made the book anticlimactic having a superpower not meant an offense but more of a defense


message 32: by Joyzi (new)

Joyzi @kaipea that was my brother's problem too, he loves the movie but he can't get to read the book because he complains about the first chapters being boring


message 33: by K.D. (new)

K.D. Absolutely Joyzi, Bella does not want to fight. She only wants to be loved. She was not born as a fighter but a lover ha ha.


message 34: by Joyzi (new)

Joyzi lol now you're being cheesy epekto ba yan ni Stephenie Meyer?


message 35: by K.D. (last edited Nov 07, 2010 10:08PM) (new)

K.D. Absolutely I don't know, Joyzi. When I read Twilight, there was no movie yet. Also, I was not into heavy reading yet so I had no point of comparison. I mean I have not yet read Elizabeth-Darcy love story so I thought that Bella-Edward's is just perfect and has given a new definition to a forbidden unusual love story similar to Beauty and the Beast ha ha. But that's me. I mean many readers got turned off by the movie. But I would like to think that readers liked the book and even myself, I don't think that Edward the actor approximated the guy described in the book. I thought he should be a lot better looking that that hum actor!


message 36: by KaiPea (new)

KaiPea @KD: I was busy reading Dragonlance and Knights of the silver dragon. x) I guess I got accustomed to LOTR (although I haven't read LOTR I've only watched the movies to me BTW is AWESOME!) kind of adventure books...
that made HP quite boring.

@Joyzi: The only thing that I liked about HP is the effects very very very cool but even that won't make me watch it.


message 37: by Joyzi (new)

Joyzi I read Twilight because of all the hype, I first saw the movie and already 2 of my friends are raving about the books and mind you they're not really into reading books but Twilight got them reading so I was curious to read about it to know what all the fuss was all about. The first and the second book I didn't enjoy that much because I'm struggling with Meyer's purple prose, I think Eclipse change that and that was when I respect SM and I know that she can write decently but Breaking Dawn it was just so bad if I had the book I might have burned it.

I read all the books via e-book btw so I'm not really that angry, I thought the Twilight saga was literally what you call a literature junkfood


message 38: by Regine (new)

Regine I think that only the first two HP movies measure up to the books. The rest of them were good, but did not stand up to the book.

KD, I reread the HP books once in awhile to "cleanse my palate". I remember reading the first one, and thinking, "wow, this is quite boring". By the second or third chapter, I started remembering why I loved the books so much.


message 39: by Joyzi (new)

Joyzi I love the 3rd movie, the movie that I think was the worst was the Order of the Phoenix and Half Blood Prince


message 40: by Regine (new)

Regine I hated the Half Blood Prince


message 41: by Joyzi (new)

Joyzi me too the movie destroy the book Grrrr


message 42: by Regine (new)

Regine I loved the book. Loved, loved, loved the book. I can't even compare the movie to the book, because they turn the plot into a teen-romance. They missed major points in the movie-- such as Voldemort's family history, and there was no sense of fear when I was watching the movie.


message 43: by Emir Never (new)

Emir Never Excuse me, ladies. Did you find Severus Snape's character lovely?


message 44: by Joyzi (new)

Joyzi Yeah I love Snape why? I think he's cooler than Harry's father which I think is a douche bag


message 45: by Emir Never (new)

Emir Never Severus is my favorite HP character, Joyzi. :)


message 46: by Joyzi (new)

Joyzi yeah me too one of my favorite, but I think Hermione Granger was the best character among the rest and then I also love Luna Lovegood and Bellatrix and Sirius Black and Lupin and Dumbledore and Harry and Ron and the Twins Fred and George and Neville and Draco Malfoy, okay I shut up now


message 47: by Emir Never (new)

Emir Never Joyzi wrote: "yeah me too one of my favorite, but I think Hermione Granger was the best character among the rest and then I also love Luna Lovegood and Bellatrix and Sirius Black and Lupin and Dumbledore and Har..."

lol! I like Snape's tragic story and enduring love; such admirable constancy!


message 48: by Joyzi (new)

Joyzi Yeeep I cried when I've read The Prince's tale


message 49: by Regine (new)

Regine Severus is my favourite character too! I have coworkers that dislike Snape, and I just think , "what? are we even reading the same book here?"


message 50: by Regine (new)

Regine I think that my favourite characters are :

1) Snape
2)Harry
3)Lupin
4)Dumbledore
5) Ron and Hermione, and Hagrid, and Neville... haha, same problem that Joyzi ran into.
