Tesni (ohmarcello) | 5242 comments I haven't read that one yet. However, I did get a copy of Burned for Christmas, and that was amazing.

Meagan (flwurmeagan) | 4986 comments Oh, I think I have that reserved at the library. XD I have Tricks to read after this :)

My only problem was that book is that there were SO many issues with them. I mean, it was just too much.

I wasn't a big fan of Crank, I would hope that her other books are more original.

Like, I like the poetry, but the plot itself and all the characters are lacking.

There are definitely a lot of issues with them. And I'm barely into it :P

I loved Crank, for the poetry.

The poetry's undeniably the best thing about her books, at least to my mind.


Shreya=Drastically Random. Find the emoticon. | 1078 comments Aaaah I'm still down after Parvana's Journey. It's so sad but it's so REAL! :(:(:(:(:(


message 110: by Tesni (new)

Tesni (ohmarcello) | 5242 comments OH OH OH I READ THAT!
Well, like, three years ago. Anyway, I loved it.
Have you read the other two books? (Mud City is actually my favourite)

Shreya=Drastically Random. Find the emoticon. | 1078 comments I read the breadwinner, but I haven't read Mud City yet. I really want to - it's nice how she's not trying to hush up all the cruel or harsh bits - like I said before, it's real.


message 112: by Tesni (new)

Tesni (ohmarcello) | 5242 comments hmm. Well, you should read Mud City, 'cause it's about what happens to Parvana's friend after the first two books. Hard to say why I like that one so much- maybe Shauzia just seems like a more likeable character.


Shreya=Drastically Random. Find the emoticon. | 1078 comments Oh. That'll be good for me - I was feeling strong hate towards her. But for some reason I can't help liking Asif.


message 114: by Tesni (new)

Tesni (ohmarcello) | 5242 comments Asif is highly amusing.


Shreya=Drastically Random. Find the emoticon. | 1078 comments I know! He's so grumpy and rude, but there's something about him that you have to love. He's funny too...his sarcasm is amazing.


message 116: by Meagan (new)

Meagan (flwurmeagan) | 4986 comments There's more books to The Breadwinner? I didn't know that...


message 117: by Hayden (new)

Hayden (normanbaes) | 7944 comments Star Wars: The Old Republic: Fatal Alliance

Bwa ha ha. This is what I'm reading.

Indeedy. After The Breadwinner there's Parvana's Journey , and the third is Mud City.


message 119: by Meagan (last edited Jan 17, 2011 09:37AM) (new)

Meagan (flwurmeagan) | 4986 comments I need to read those...maybe...


message 120: by Tesni (new)

Tesni (ohmarcello) | 5242 comments They're pretty good.
Well. I read them almost two years ago, so perhaps I'd find them different now. Hmmm.

Alicia (Lav) | 22630 comments Mod
I just started Looking for Alaska.


message 122: by Meagan (new)

Meagan (flwurmeagan) | 4986 comments I WANNA READ THAT


message 123: by Tesni (new)

Tesni (ohmarcello) | 5242 comments LOOKING FOR ALASKA YES YES YES
I cannot be pleased enough if you're reading this.


message 124: by Alicia (Lav) (new)

Alicia (Lav) | 22630 comments Mod
I read the first chapter and it's amaaaazing so far. But I love all of John Green's books. Paper Towns is still my favorite though, so far.


message 125: by Tesni (new)

Tesni (ohmarcello) | 5242 comments An Abundance of Katherines is my least favourite, though I haven't read Will Grayson, Will Grayson yet.
Not sure whether I prefer Paper Towns or Looking for Alaska...they're both great.


message 126: by Alicia (Lav) (new)

Alicia (Lav) | 22630 comments Mod
Oh yeah. I haven't read Will Grayson, Will Grayson either.


message 127: by The Urban Otome (new)

The Urban Otome (TheUrbanOtome) I'm reading North of Beautiful by Justina Chen Headley

It's pretty good so far, the descriptions are greatly visualized.


message 128: by Tesni (new)

Tesni (ohmarcello) | 5242 comments I've heard so many good things about that book...alas, I haven't had a chance to read it yet.


Maria [the clockwork creeps on useless lives] (MariaChhile) | 8772 comments Mod
I am reading PAPER TOWNS. Why am I still reading it, you ask? Well, that is because no matter how good of a book it is I have been much too lazy to get it out of my backpack.


message 130: by Tesni (new)

Tesni (ohmarcello) | 5242 comments *gasps*
It's definitely worth getting out of your backpack.


message 131: by Hayden (new)

Hayden (normanbaes) | 7944 comments Same with me. "I really want to read it, but my butt's REALLY comfortable right now and I think I just lost feeling in all of my limbs, so I'm not gonna' get up."


message 132: by [deleted user] (new)

I can't wait to read Will Grayson, Will Grayson


message 133: by Emily (new)

Tesni (ohmarcello) | 5242 comments The Antique Gift Shop, Volume 1 by Lee Eun. It's...more than a little weird.
Don't know why but in my sleepless nights of late I've been reading heaps of manga.

message 140: by Tesni (new)

Tesni (ohmarcello) | 5242 comments Almost finished reading Bright Young Things (Bright Young Things, #1) by Anna Godbersen, 11th or 12th book of 2011 so far (I think).

Tesni (ohmarcello) | 5242 comments BUtterfield 8 by John O'Hara
BUtterfield 8 by John O'Hara. Only just started it, but the opening is epic.
