Katie Victoria (thisisarcadia) | 2 comments I'm reading Alice's adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. Also, Brixton Beach but I have to say Alice in Wonderland is far, far better.

Yeah I agree with Leonor. I really enjoyed reading this I actually bought it. Now I have a list of co-workers waiting on reading it too.

**Carla** I am close to finishing Pretties and will be going to the library this afternoon. So I will get a new book to start after. I have been told to get something to read by Judy Blume cause I can't ever remember reading anything by her and apparently she is a must read author.

I really liked Lovely Bones, it's really sad though.


message 261: by **Carla** (new)

**Carla** yeah I have seen the movie already so I know what the story line is but of course I always find the book better than the movie.

I also really enjoyed Lovely Bones. It is high on my list of recommendations. (I borrowed out my book... haven't seen it since. I guess they like the book.) The book was written well, however, it is probably be one of those sad books that I wouldn't think of re-reading.

How was the movie?


message 264: by **Carla** (new)

**Carla** The movie was really good however I think it is one of those movies that you are either going to like or hate. not much of an in between. Have also heard that in comparison of the book to the movie they didn't put in a lot of the graphic detail that is in the book and that it's a good thing otherwise the movie might have been to hard to watch. ps I love Mark Wahlberg

I haven't seen the movie yet, but my friends that have say that the book was way better. I'm still going to watch it eventually though.

Karli I've got my friend's Kindle and am reading The Apothecary's Daughter - Never heard of it, but it was the only thing that looked at all readable on there, and I soooo wanted to try out the Kindle. :)

Karli I have three going right now - The Wednesday Sisters, Being Dead: A Novel and Fool. It's going to be a busy weekend. My friend from college mailed me Wednesday Sisters when she finished it, and said that the characters reminded her of our college crew - I've identified myself and my roommate so far, and I'm on about page 20. :) Good times!

Jordan (flyinglogicmonkey) | 150 comments Re-reading Grace in Thine Eyes, reading A Severe Mercy for school, and getting ready to maybe read an ebook. Even though I don't like ebooks.

Tom | 6 comments The Godfather of Kathmandu (Sonchai Jitpleecheep Series #4)  by John Burdett

I love John Burdett's books located in Thailand. They are good mysteries and also explain a lot about Bhuddism

T J Flynn | 3 comments I just started Willy Vlautin's latest novel, Lean on Pete. He's a great and as yet, partly under-ground writer (at least considering his immense talent) but has such a beautiful and sparse style, which hooked me in his two previous books. Pete is a stomper so far.

KSMary I am currently reading The Kite Runner

good book. and a quick read. his second book A Thousand Splendid Sunsis even better.


message 284: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth just started The Room and the Chair. interesting, but a complicated number of characters.


message 285: by Karli (new)

Karli I finished The Wednesday Sisters last night - my children were spending the night with grandparents, so I had time, I had only been halfway finished when I started before bed. It was OK. The story was compelling, I cared about the characters, but it was just not that well-written, at times it seemed more a series of anecdotes than a novel. Good enough for a read, not good enough for a keep.


message 286: by Heather B (new)

Heather B (HeatherBenson) Finished reading Beautiful Creatures and I'm now reading Irresistible Forces.

I used to live in Thailand in I would say he brings Bangkok alive with words. His discriptions make me miss that big smelly city. Ahh...

I just picked Night Embrace again. Starting from where I left off. (I was in my trunk no wonder I couldn't find it.). It's ok you can laugh. I did!


message 289: by **Carla** (new)


message 290: by Heather B (new)

Heather B (HeatherBenson) I liked that book, still have to read the second one though.


message 291: by Angela (new)

Angela B I am reading Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher By Jay Asher it's very good so far, interesting story and style of writting


message 292: by Karli (new)

Karli I just finished Fool by Christopher Moore and am now debating my pile of books for where I should move on...I'm thinking it'll probaby be Life of Pi by Yann Martel.


message 293: by Heather B (new)

Heather B (HeatherBenson) I finished Triple Shot Bettys In Love by Jody Gehrman
Starting The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks


message 294: by KSMary (new)

KSMary I started Stardust


message 295: by Karli (new)

Karli I changed my mind and went with The Virgin Blue. I'm not sure why, but I'm avoiding Life of Pi. Perhaps I'm still resentful, as the librarian who dissed my other selection (The Historian) endorsed Life of Pi so heartily. I think I may be contrary.


message 296: by KSMary (new)

KSMary I have The Historian waiting TBR as soon as I finish Stardust.

I'm really surprised that a librarian would be able to dismiss a book so easily. One should realize that everyone has different tastes. That is why there are so many different types.

I am interested to hear what you think - it was such a heavily researched book, I learned so much while I read it. I probably wouldn't re-read it, but it was totally worth picking up.

Sincerely,
Contrary Karli
