Come here to suggest books and tell everyone what you're reading :)

Currently, I'm reading the Au Pairs by Melissa de la Cruz. I'm enjoying it more than I thought I would!

Really? I'll have to look up that book.


message 5: by Lyla (new)

Lyla Lougee (LylaLougee-Author) | 32 comments actually, it's called something like "strange powers" but I like Dark Vission because it's the whole triliogy in one book. AWESOME!!!

Heard of it, read the first chapter, don't think i'm gonna get it.

On another note, I'm reading our groups book Clockwork Angel! It's a gloomy day which is perfect! I love this book so far, and if anyone has read The Mortal Instruments series then you will definitely see people that I love in this book! I find it odd and a little of a bore when you can figure others emotions before the do. =^/


message 13: by Lyla (new)

Lyla Lougee (LylaLougee-Author) | 32 comments Oh man! for any of you who like French Ravolution boks, this one I'm reading is great. It's called Sovay and it's set in the same period but it's way different. It's not quite focused around the French Revolution, but it takes a more sympathetic side to the event. It's actually about a lady in England and what happens to her. But at the moment, the part I'm at, she's going to France so it's connected.

Patti | 327 comments Mod
oh i heard of sovay. isnt she like robin hood?


message 15: by Lyla (new)

Lyla Lougee (LylaLougee-Author) | 32 comments Not at all, actually. She's just kinda... herself. Although it puts that on the book cover.


message 16: by Veronica (new)

Veronica (veronica_mitchell) I am currently reading The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima. So far it is pretty good.

Camilla (camillaisloved) | 177 comments Just got done reading Girl in the Arena by Lise Haines : not what I thought it was. It was a good story, but the climax was a little (a lot) anticlimactic; and Another Pan (Another, #2) by Daniel Nayeri : again, not what I expected, it's the 2nd novel to Another series and it was better than I thought it was going to be.

Now I am going to start reading one of the seven books that I got from the library. Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3) by Suzanne Collins or The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff or Torment (Fallen, #2) by Lauren Kate or Crescendo (Hush, Hush, #2) by Becca Fitzpatrick or one of the other 3 that I cannot remember. I have my month full!


message 18: by Izzy (new)

Izzy I'm currently reading Second Helpings by Megan McCafferty - this is the second book in the Jessica Darling series, and I like it a lot so far! It's shaping up to be just as good as the first.


message 19: by Alice (new)

Alice (aliciairene) Currently reading Sing Me to Sleep by Angela Morrison and it is pretty awesome.


message 20: by Camilla (new)

Camilla (camillaisloved) | 177 comments Sweet God, Alice! That is one of my favorite books!!! Love it! And it's so SAD!! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!


message 21: by Alice (new)

Alice (aliciairene) Oh my God. I just finished it, Camilla. I just couldn't stop reading it. It is indeed so SAD. But so so beautiful.
Definitely one of my favorites.


message 22: by ~Tormiester~, The Writer (new)

~Tormiester~ (hatsoff343) | 363 comments Mod
Woah. Is it really that sad?


message 23: by Camilla (new)

Camilla (camillaisloved) | 177 comments It was amazing! So good! Yeah, it's so sad! If I were to re-read it I would have a whole box of Kleenex next to me. I didn't just cry; it was the type of cry where my face was soaked and I had snot mixed in! I was a hot mess! And the craziest part was that I couldn't stop reading. I kept reading through the tears. That took some time. lol :D

K.C. Neal (kcneal) | 31 comments I'm reading Jenny Pox, about 1/3 of the way through it, and it's really good - I stayed up an extra 45 minutes last night because I couldn't put it down. :)

Jenny Pox by J.L. Bryan


message 25: by Camilla (new)

Camilla (camillaisloved) | 177 comments I'll have to check that out! It looks amazing!

I know! I kept reading and reading. I was a mess and my face was filled with tears and I was sobbing so hard. Thank God, I was locked in my room, otherwise my mom would've freaked out-or I wasn't in school.


message 28: by Alice (new)

Alice (aliciairene) Anyway, I am currently reading V for Vendetta by Steve Moore and it is pretty awesonme.

Question out of the topic: Is 'damn' a bad word? Since I live in Pma, I have no real way of knowing.


message 29: by Camilla (last edited Feb 01, 2011 05:27AM) (new)

Camilla (camillaisloved) | 177 comments Have you seen the movie 'V for Vendetta'? If so, is it anything like the book? I thought that the movie had a good plot and story line.

As far as 'damn' being a bad word: I think that all depends on the person and how one would define the word. To me it's a curse word and I would never use it.

Here is what a web dictionary says:
▸ noun: something of little value ("His promise is not worth a damn")
▸ verb: wish harm upon; invoke evil upon
▸ adjective: used as expletives ("Oh, damn (or goddamn)!")
▸ adjective: expletives used informally as intensifiers ("I'll be damned (or blessed or darned or goddamned) if I'll do any such thing")
▸ adverb: extremely

Reading Last Sacrifice. I swear...if Adrian bonds with someone and gets involved with them instead of Rose...I think thats where it's headed and I will be extremely angry if it is!! Go Team Adrian! Always cheering for the underdogs.


message 31: by Alice (new)

Alice (aliciairene) Aw thank you, Camilla. It's just that here, in a place where everyone talks spanish, you don't really see the caliber of the word.

And about 'V' it's exactly as the movie. And yes, I have seen it and it's one of my favorites. The book is the same as the movie, however, of course, you get more details and explanations.


message 32: by K.C. (new)

K.C. Neal (kcneal) | 31 comments Anybody read I Am Number Four, by Pittacus Lore (ha, what a great name!)? I have it on reserve at the library, but there are like 40 people ahead of me. It looks really good!

Went and saw the movie! LOVE! It is SO different from the book, but in a good way. To me anyway. Can't say that anyone else will have the same opinion.

I am reading Linger (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #2) by Maggie Stiefvater The Demon Girl (The Rae Wilder Novels #1) by Penelope Fletcher Red Riding Hood by Sarah Blakley-Cartwright Throat by R.A. Nelson Eternal (Tantalize, #2) by Cynthia Leitich Smith Blessed (Tantalize, #3) by Cynthia Leitich Smith ... in that order.


message 37: by Alice (new)

Alice (aliciairene) I just finished Clockwork Angel and it was great. The Millenium Trilogy is her next choice to read.

Yeah its very slow so far...its also running in circles.


message 42: by Camilla (new)

Camilla (camillaisloved) | 177 comments I thought so too. I just didn't want to ruin it for you and cloud your judgement with my opinions.


message 43: by Cara (new)

Cara | 1 comments Need advice of which to read first! I have both Crank and 13 Reasons Why for a month from the library. Which to read first?


message 44: by Patti, The Reader (new)

Patti | 327 comments Mod
@ Cara- I know our other moderator, Tori, read the whole entire Crank series and loved it.

@ Camilla- I finally finished it. Way too many coincidences and people popping up at exactly the right time. The characters (Ridley, Link, Liv, and Lea at the end) were what really made me continue reading. The first was definitely the best.


message 45: by Camilla (new)

Camilla (camillaisloved) | 177 comments @Cara: I have not read the Crank series, but I have read 13 Reasons Why and I really liked it. I would read that one first before starting a series. But that's just me.

@Patti: I am glad that you finally finished it! And I agree that the first was the best. I think that I'll read the next one, but I hope the story gets better.

READ CRANK!!!!!!! ^-^

I surely had my moments when I wanted to ehem kill one of the characters who I shall not name for fear that I might get the feeling to strangle them again...but I loved the style and it was a good book.
