message 16: by ★Meghan★ (new)

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 1455 comments I am currently reading Hannah's List by Debbie Macomber and if anyone has any suggestions from my list please let me know.


message 17: by Jencey/ (new)

Jencey/ (jencey) I noticed you like Jane Austen. I happen to be a fan myself. I don't know what kind of suggestions you are looking for? I have one Elizabeth Aston has written a series that are the sequel to Pride and Prejudice. The title is Mr. Darcy's Daughter. I haven't read it yet.


message 18: by ★Meghan★ (new)

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 1455 comments I was thinking more from my own list, but I will look into that book. Thanks.


message 19: by ★Meghan★ (new)

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 1455 comments Ok Finished Hannah's List by Debbie Macomber and will be starting The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium, #1) by Stieg Larsson and Dracula by Bram Stoker


message 20: by ★Meghan★ (last edited Aug 10, 2010 07:34AM) (new)

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 1455 comments Ok so I thought I wouldn't really get into Dracula by Bram Stoker ...not normally a book I would read. But it is soooo good. Really creepy! I even am getting weird dreams about it if it is the last book I am reading before bed!

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium, #1) by Stieg Larsson is also very good. It is a little more slow moving, but I am intrigued to see what happens...murder is on the foot!


message 21: by Kate (new)

Kate (katemreads) | 94 comments How many pages are you at now? Your last page count was 7,271 but you finished Hannah's List. We are about the same pages wise. :) I hope you can get your 10K goal by next month!


message 22: by ★Meghan★ (new)

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 1455 comments I am to 7271 with Hannah's List! But right now I am reading 3 books. Dracula, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone. They have 433, 426, and 309 pages respectively. Which would put me at approx. 8400 if I can ever finish them. Haha got to read the first two faster! Harry Potter is going quick though.


message 23: by Kate (new)

Kate (katemreads) | 94 comments That's great! :) I think you can def. reach your goal! Especially if you have more books that have in pages the 400's. It's a good way to get more pages in! You'll have to tell me how Dracula and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo are. Obviously I've heard of Dracula and seen the movies but I've never read the book before.


message 24: by Heather (new)

Heather (nickyblue7) | 486 comments good luck and how is dracula? i just watched the movie yesturday and it was good


message 25: by ★Meghan★ (new)

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 1455 comments I have never seen the movie. It was intriguing for the first 5 chapters because you get to see Dracula. Now I am in chapter 9 and it has changed to the setting in England. There are still a lot of pages for me to read (only at about 140 or so). There is a creepy edge in these chapters too but you have no idea where it is coming from...if you get what I mean.


message 26: by Heather (new)

Heather (nickyblue7) | 486 comments it sounds good since i havent had a good scary book in a long time


message 27: by ★Meghan★ (new)

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 1455 comments Haha Dracula isn't my normal type of book...I usually read nice "fluffy" books. Which right now I am reading a few not so "fluffy" books which is why it is taking me longer. Especially since this week I worked 54 hrs and for a while will be doing 60 hr work weeks. So I feel like I should have been done with these books forever ago.


message 28: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) I will look into The Exorcist. Because I heard the movie/s were good.


message 29: by Heather (new)

Heather (nickyblue7) | 486 comments Meghan: u have inspired me to read dracula which i have out from the library right now. thanks :)

You should set up a buddy read. Always better to read with other people, especially classics. You get more out of it and people can motivate you. Might be a good time because it's one of the free classics this week (ebook) at B & N. So, a lot of people, like me, have probably downloaded it intending to read it later.


message 31: by ★Meghan★ (new)

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 1455 comments I so would Shay but I am about 1/2 way through it already :( I would put it off but I really want to try finish it this month. I haven't finished anything since the 6th.


message 32: by ★Meghan★ (new)

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 1455 comments YAY! I finally finished a book. Now time to whip through GWTDT


message 33: by Heather (new)

Heather (nickyblue7) | 486 comments which one?


message 34: by ★Meghan★ (new)

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 1455 comments Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone I want to re-read them all before the last movie hits theaters. Because I am weird like that.

Shay the next book I pick out a classic which my list is still growing but it won't let me put on anymore new ones (too many characters). I will definitely set up a Buddy Read as long as it is cool with Z and Elyssa.

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 1455 comments Finished The Hunger Games (Hunger Games, #1) by Suzanne Collins and now onto Catching Fire (Hunger Games, #2) by Suzanne Collins and of course still reading Dracula by Bram Stoker


message 39: by ★Meghan★ (last edited Sep 12, 2010 07:25PM) (new)

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 1455 comments I am almost done with Catching Fire (Hunger Games, #2) by Suzanne Collins about 25 more pages left. I like this one a lot better than The Hunger Games (Hunger Games, #1) by Suzanne Collins which was too predictable for my liking. It should hopefully be finished sometime tonight or tomorrow sometime. Then I will work through Dracula by Bram Stoker a little more and start up Mockingjay (Hunger Games, #3) by Suzanne Collins . Plus I have also added in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter, #2) by J.K. Rowling when my nook is dying.


message 40: by Kate (new)

Kate (katemreads) | 94 comments This is an awesome list Meghan! I love how you have some seasonal books! What's your page count now? It's got to be over 9K now.


message 41: by ★Meghan★ (new)

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 1455 comments Not yet! I do not have nearly enough time to read with working 50+ hours a week. But I am will be done with Mockingjay probably tonight or tomorrow! And starting another book shortly after that.


message 42: by ★Meghan★ (last edited Sep 25, 2010 09:27PM) (new)
