I know! I didn't think I'd like them given the amount of craze that the show went through, so I gave the show a shot and loved it. Then moved on, now I can't get enough. Tahleen wrote: "I didn't know Gregory Maguire wrote a book about a tooth fairy!"
I didn't either till I saw it sitting on their clearance shelf, it's for younger readers (can't really decide if that's children or young adult though) but so far I'm loving it.It's adorable.
I went to Borders Thursday and picked a few books with my gift card. What-the-Dickens The Story of a Rogue Tooth Fairy
by Gregory MaguireDead as a Doornail
by Charlaine Harris The Gargoyle
by Andrew DavidsonThe Heretic Queen
by Michelle Moran
Agreed, in this case the people in charge of rooming definitely didn't consider others. There are plenty of other empty rooms in the three different buildings, and yet they chose to move them into a hall full of people. Very poor planning, considering the fact that we are pretty sure they were kicked out of their old dorm.
My roommate situation went from perfect to disasterous...I'm still with my old roomie Caelia but as I mentioned before we moved to a suite. And for nearly the entire semester we went with out suite mates. So it was quiet and clean...then suddenly out of the blue in November we were told we were having suite mates...well we were kind of expecting them to move in the next semester. NOPE, they moved in 30 mins after we were told.
They party...have random (and unfamiliar) guys over almost every other night, they are rude. It's just horrible. We have received the stereotypical college girls...
For my Spring semester I'm finally getting to delve farther into Anthropology.
Case Studies in Cultural Anthropology
...and a computer class that I can't for the life of me remember the name. It was an required extra class so I didn't pay to much attention since it's a online course.
I just started The Eye of the World
very large book so I may pick another book to read along side it.
About a month ago we had Yusef Komunyakka come and read. His work is absolutely amazing, and hearing him read it was an experience to remember.
It's one thing to read it yourself or hear someone like a teacher read it to you. But to hear the person who wrote it down, that takes the poem to a whole other level of understanding.
We are having Natasha Trethewey come and read next semester as well, and I'm thinking about trying to go.
I go through phases now. Growing up I would tackle 4-5 books at a time a finish majority of them before the week was out. By the time I hit middle school I was down to 3 at a time. High school I was down to 1-2 and that's where I usually stick. But occasionally I'll develop literary ADD and then I'll have about 4 books going at once.
I used to listen to audio books with my mom, but now they tend make me drift off to sleep.
@Emily: I've thought about that too!Lol
We finally bought the soundtrack like a week ago (took us long enough), so me and my boyfriend have been singing along like crazy.
Harry Potter Series
Water for Elephants
The Time Traveler's Wife
Any of the Zamonia novels from Walter Moers
Oh there are so many, but those are the ones I finished quite quickly
One of the books we are required to read in my English class is a book of poetry, it's called Native Guard
by Natasha Trethewey.
Very pretty, yet very sad poetry. I'm really enjoying it, and I must say it's a relief to be able to analyze something that feels like it's supposed to be.
I agree, every time I hear that I find it so weird. 3 seconds to dream it and yet sometimes when you explain it you take forever! I remember telling my friend one of my dreams, 30 mins...30 mins of explanation! The brain is an odd thing
I've only managed to actually fully cry on one book so far and that's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows when my favorite character died...and then I practically bawled.
I finally finished Ventrue Clan Novel
and started Water for Elephants
It's a group read for one of my other groups here on Goodreads. So far I'm really liking it.
I know mine is slightly strange but I can't help it. I have a thing for Severus Snape from the Harry Potter series. He's so dark and sarcastic, he's overall attitude and depth just appealed to me.

Well so far I'm about 300(ish) pages into it and I love it, I really want to buy it myself so I can reread it in the future. I completely recommend it, it's very original and the storyline completely sucked me.
I'm trying to get through Ventrue Clan Novel
, which even though it's short and fairly good it's taking a long time for some reason.
Also kind of reading my roommates book off and on called Elantris
Lol that was kind of random.
I've had a dream similar and it repeats at least once a year. I usually go to our Campus Center (which I've only been to twice) and hang out. Then at some point I always end up in our mascot outfit while I'm running away from something ( I never know what it is). Just the fact that I'm running around in a oversized blue wolf costume is weird enough. lol
There are very few books I loathed but the ones I do make me cringe at the very mention.
I despised Beloved
and The Bluest Eye
by Toni Morrison. I tried to like them and I'll give the author credit for a wonderful writing style but I just couldn't bring myself to like the books.
I hate the Twilight series, there simply isn't enough plot to satisfy me, among a whole other list of complaints.
I'm like Rory Gilmore, I read everywhere. I feel weird if I'm not carrying a book with me out and about. I read any time I have a free moment ,that's not taken up by conversations or walking around campus (far too many turns and hills to read while walking).
