Allison (The Allure of Books) (inconceivably) good start to the year! I hope you're enjoying Sookie :)

Kristen (KristenMA) | 142 comments Thanks Allison! I am really enjoying the Sookie books. I can't wait until the next one comes out.

13. From Dead to Worse by Charlaine Harris
14. Blue Bloods by Melissa de la Cruz

April (booksandwine) | 954 comments Oh how was Blue Bloods? Everytime I log on Amazon they tell me to purchase it!


message 8: by Kristen (new)

Kristen (KristenMA) | 142 comments Blue Bloods was okay. It was a good story idea but I don't think that it fully lived up to its potential. It seemed like Gossip Girl meets vampires. I am going to read the next book to see if it gets better.

19. Forever Princess by Meg Cabot


message 12: by Jeane (new)

Jeane | 4891 comments How is the queen's fool? Have it form the library more than a month and still didn't start it.


message 13: by Kristen (new)

Kristen (KristenMA) | 142 comments Jeane - I have read The Other Boleyn Girl and the Boleyn Inheritance and I really enjoyed them. The Queen's Fool was not as good as these books. It started out slow but it did get better towards the middle of the book.

Kristen (KristenMA) | 142 comments 20. Hunted by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast

Kristen (KristenMA) | 142 comments 21. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak


message 16: by Vicki (new)

Vicki Was Revelations the third one of the series? I read the other two, but didn't read that one. How was it? Did you like Hunted? I loved the Book Thief. I am reading his I am the Messenger now.

Vicki, Revelations is the 3rd Blue Blood book. It was ok. All of those books are really quick reads but they are not my favorite vampire books.

Hunted seemed like a book that sets up the plot for the rest of the series so it seemed that not much happened in the book.

I really liked the Book Thief. I find that since I finished the book I have been thinking about it for the past few days. You will have to let me know how I am the Messenger is.

How did you like everyone worth knowing? I read the devil wears prada and chasing harry winston. everyone wirth knowing is definitly my next chick-lit piece ;o)


message 22: by Kristen (new)

Kristen (KristenMA) | 142 comments Thanks 3rdfloor! I have not been good with the not buying books thing. Buying books is like an addiction. Everyone Worth Knowing was okay. I found the book to be very similar to the Devil Wears Prada. I have not read Chasing Harry Winston yet. Was that a good one?

Kristen (KristenMA) | 142 comments 38. Dead and Gone by Charlaine Harris - I need the next Sookie Stackhouse book to come out soon. I don't like loose ends!


message 38: by Carol (last edited Jun 06, 2009 11:35AM) (new)

Carol (caroldias) I want to read the Sookie Stackhouse books too!

And what was your thoughts about the L. F. Stolartz books? I´m reading the Blue is for Nightmares series.


message 39: by Kristen (new)

Kristen (KristenMA) | 142 comments Carol: You should definitely read the Sookie Stackhouse books, they are so good and once you start you won't be able to stop until you have read them all.

I did not really like Deadly Little Secret by Stolartz. To me it seemed like a blatant rip off of Twilight but not done nearly as well. How is the Blue is for Nightmares series though?


message 40: by Carol (new)

Carol (caroldias) Bad for the Stolartz book.

I read the Blue is for Nightmares and I´m waiting for me White is for Magic to arrive in the mail. The first one I liked, it´s very light reading, the main girl is funny and all the wicca things are treated naturally, I´m looking for the 2nd book cause people say the last 3 is actully a series, the first one is more like a stand alone just to introduce the main character

Sharon Ellis | 177 comments Do you think Little Women is a good gift for a nine year old girl, or too advanced?
thanks
Sharon


message 43: by Kristen (new)

Kristen (KristenMA) | 142 comments Carol: I will have to check out the Blue is for Nightmares series because I have heard that they are good.

Sharon: I remember reading Little Women was I was 13 years old so I think that a nine year old could probably read it.
