You might like "Does My Head Look Big in That?" It is Teen lit and pretty funny. I have a copy if you want to check it out.

I am glad you liked SPEAK. Now that we've read THE HUNGER GAMES, would you add that to your list? Why or why not?

Do you think THE HUNGER GAMES was similar to horror? What about ASHFALL?

I like non-fiction a lot too. We'll be doing some non-fiction reading circles this year. Your book sounds really interesting. Do you know the title?

What do you think about ASHES? There are 3 books i that series, and then ASHFALL will have 3 too.

Have you read the HARRY POTTER series? I was sort of anti for a while, but then 2 years ago, I made myself get through the first one, and then I was HOOKED. The series as a whole is sooooo good and well-written.
