Janca (yancha) | 5 comments I am adding Monster Hunter International, Ender in Exile, and Guns of the South, to my to read list. I added each one because my english teacher told me about monster hunter international and it sounds really good, i added Ender in Exile because i like the other books in the series, and Guns in the South because i LOVE the Civil War and it has a twist that sounds really good.

Shyla Summers | 2 comments The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne I picked this because I heard it was really good from a friend.
The Vampire Lestat (The Vampire Chronicles, #2) by Anne Rice
I want to read this because I read the first one but I don't really like the character Lestat.
Because I am Furniture by Thalia Chaltas I wanna read this because it sounds really interesting.

Shadrach Puletau (Tongan4Life) | 1 comments I starting to like Carl Deuker books and I'm looking forward to finishing Gym Candy and I'm lookng to read Night Hoops. I'm also looking at Holler If You Hear Me just because I want to hear what Michael Eric Dyson has to say about Tupac. I'm now looking at Only the Strong Survive: The Odyssey of Allen Iverson because I admire Allen Iverson as a basketball player, he also was the first player I watched play in the NBA.

Lacy | 6 comments Willow, Give a Boy a Gun, Suicide Notes
These 3 books caught my attention because they are related to suicide and death. Death and suicide interest me quite a bit, something about getting attached to characters and letting them go keeps me into it. I enjoy sadness when I read, I like the emotional feel it gives me.

Lucifer (PunkRockBoogie) | 4 comments The five books I want to read this summer are not known yet. I'm not the best planner. As a matter of fact, I break plans. Well, I'll be sure to find what I'd like to read. Not many books can follow Siddhartha; well, not many that fall under the same category. I will find what I like though.

message 23: by Ariana (new)

Ariana | 10 comments The best book I read this year: Girl, Stolen, Scars, and Leftovers.

message 24: by Ariana (new)
