I'd love if you wrote RECOMENDED on the top of your reply to this thread whenever you have a book that you really liked! Thanks!

"In this thread, everyone will post their reviews/opinions of the book they have read this week AFTER you rate/review it on your page. The purpose of this is so everyone can see what you read this week and read your review without having to visit each profile. Some of you have their profiles locked, so this saves you the trouble of unlocking it.


The format will be like this:

Name of book.


n/5 stars.

"Your simple opinion/extended review/one word that expresses what you thought of the book. GO CRAZY! Anything counts. Don't feel pressured."

Link to your review.

Also, this allows us to be organized, so even if a member didn't log in for about a month, they can add the book they've read to the appropriate thread.



As I've mentioned in the guidelines, one word or a simple opinion counts as a 'review'. I only called it that because Goodreads calls it that."

Now let's see your achievements, awesome people.

40. Criminal (Will Trent, #7) by Karin Slaughter
Book: Criminal
Author: Karin Slaughter
Genre: Fiction, Crime, Mystery, Thriller
Finished Date: 9.Sept.2012
Rating: ★★★★★
Review: I loved it.

≈ Will Trent has been a mystery I loved to get glimpses of from Book 1 in the Will Trent Series. This book gave such a heartbreaking story of a man who's had the toughest time but still managed to "rise from the ashes" as Karin said. Even when he's definitely damaged and holds so many emotions, Will Trent is a good guy with a haunting past. I really like how it all came unraveled and I hope this isn't the end of the series. ≈

By Tite Kubo
I'm not a fan of the anime specially with its sad soundtracks, but allot said the series is worth it and that it is really good so the manga feels better :)

Pride and Prejudice
by Jane Austen


I like how the story does not revolve about the main character and the person she's interested in as if they're the only ones in the book. Read the book then watched the movie. I decided it's better to watch the movies of classics instead of reading them....

41. Fractured (Will Trent, #2) by Karin Slaughter
Book: Fractured
Author: Karin Slaughter
Genre: Fiction, Crime, Mystery, Thriller
Finished Date: 10.Sept.2012
Rating: ★★★★★
Review: I loved it.

≈ I've said this the first time I read this series and now I'm saying it again. This series can be a huge TV show. With the way Will Trent portrayed as a detective with baggage, he definitely can steal some wannabe-cop shows. Only I don't know who could play him... hmmmm, let me think about that... ≈

يا بنتي by علي الطنطاوي

كتاب صغير وخفيف، لربما تعد لقافة مني أني قرأته، ولكني لطالما أحببت أن اقرأ لعلي الطنطاوي. :D

نصائح جميلة وقصيرة للفتيات، ومختصرة أيضًا.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the fourth (and final, I think) installment in the Goose Girl series. And I'm happy that it didn't disappoint. Rin is an interesting protagonist, and we get to see a lot of Razo (again), which is always welcome. Also the plot was very interesting with a few twists thrown in.

All in all, an excellent ending to a very good series.
