17941 I was disappointed by it. I didn't get into the story or characters, even though I loved some of her other books.

17941 I read it a few months ago and really enjoyed it.

17941 It's embarrassing to ask this, but is there any romance in this series?

17941 Has anyone else read this? I just finished it and can't believe how great it was. It's much better than Hunger Games, and possibly on par with Ender's Game. It's a dark, violent dystopian novel with a rip-roaring story of incredible richness and complexity. It has a feminist 16 year old boy as the main character, and really well-drawn secondary characters. The movie rights have already been sold. You should read this book before the hype starts!
17941 I'm with you. This is one of my very favorite YA novels. I should read it again!

17941 Angela, I never even finished Looking for Alaska! You should read Will Grayson, will Grayson. And also The Fault in Our Stars.

17941 Angela, An Abundance of Katherines was one of the first YA books I read when I got hooked several years ago, and it's terrific. Pretty much all John Green books are!

17941 I loved Pushing the Limits, and when I read it, I couldn't put it down, either!

17941 I'm reading twelve things at least. Liking The Diviners, by Libba Bray, loathing Crime and Punishment (book club), about to start At Home by Bill Bryson ( book club as well). Want to get back to How to be a Woman, by Caitlin Moran.

17941 I put this book on my Christmas wish list and I can't wait to read it! The reviews for it have been amazing.

17941 I don't participate in the challenges, but I really love book discussions. More cool discussions would be great.

17941 I finished The Fault in Our Stars, by John Green, and sobbed through the last part. I used up at least 8 tissues. What an amazing book. I'm still working on Demonglass, which I am getting more into, and waiting to start Tempest.

17941 I'm reading The Fault in Our Stars, and also Demonglass. Both are good. TFIOS is better, but also more painful. That's why I haven't picked it up in a few days.

I have a question on a different topic: do you any of you have goodreads on your facebook timeline? I kind of want to do it, but only if I can select which friends can see it. I don't want everyone on my friends list to see what I'm reading; it would be like them peering inside my soul. Maybe I'm just weird. But is there a way to have goodreads on timeline but limit who can see it? Thank you!

I've been doing the same thing! I loved Discovery of Witches, and have read it twice already. Dying for the sequel to come out.

And put me in the Name of the Wind camp -- that is one incredible book. I was amazed by it.

I really enjoyed it, and the movie, too. Embarrassed to admit it, but it's true."

Embarassed? Why?"

Well, James Frey is the author, and he is sort of a laughing-stock, especially now that he's got this YA factory going on. And the movie got savaged in the reviews.....Oh well. I still enjoyed them both.

I LOVED the Passage! What an awesome book. It keeps getting better as you get further in.

I just started The Name of the Wind. :)"

That book is AMAZING! The beginning is slow, but don't give up. It has really incredible storytelling.

I loved Jane! After I read it I saw the movie Jane Eyre, and now I have got to read the original. (I read it in high school and hated it, but I am slightly more mature now....)

I am reading Divergent, after starting and abandoning Abandon, by Meg Cabot.

17941 I'm rereading City of Bones right now, as I got the fourth book for my birthday recently, but feel like I need to read the trilogy again first. I'm still loving Discovery of Witches (not YA), and would like to do nothing but read it, but my messy kitchen awaits.
