I love it so much it can't even be EXPLAINED.

Suzanne Collins's descriptions are just AMAZING. Her imagination is just so.. WOW."


I actually just bought that book! I haven't read it yet but I really want to. It looks interesting. It's good to know that it's a good book. I was just turned off that it has romance in it because, even though I love romance, I feel like every book nowadays has romance in it! I was kind of looking forward to something that wouldn't. Hehe, but if it's good I may want to read it!

Ashley | 1 comments My fav book is 'Uglies'

Really!? I actually DID NOT like that book...at all.


message 6: by Hannah (new)

Hannah | 19 comments It's a very quick read, and the plot is rather interesting. But, it's just the writing. It sounds like a 5th grader could have written it. And the characters are...gah! They're so thin and plain!


message 7: by Hannah (new)

Hannah | 19 comments Oh (nervous laugh) I'm sorry. It's not THAT bad. It just...argh...it frustrates me. I've only read the first book though so they may get better once you get into it more, I s'pose.

I just think that strong, interesting characters and deep writing style is equally as important as a good plot.

For fantasy: Harry Potter!
For historical fiction: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Classic Literature: almost all Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Nonfiction: Too many things to list, I'll give my favorite biography, the Diary of Anne Frank
I also really liked Suzanne Fisher Staples's books Haveli and House of the Djinn, though they were both incredibly sad, Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson and The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson
