Daughter of the forest was better...


message 3: by Hannah, Don't TOUCH my Title Klymy. (new)

Hannah | 3223 comments Mod
Well I haven't read that yet, so I can't really say. :D But what did you think about Wildwood?


message 4: by Katerina, Mother Gothel's Cake (new)

Katerina (klymene) | 2740 comments Mod
It was good enough. I just can't get over how Amazing Daughter of the Forest was. I just can't believe Way hasn't read it yet. It's such a beautiful book, based on the story of the 6 swans, by the Brothers Grimm. Here is the original: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Six_...
But it's changed abit, like retellings always do.

Hannah | 3223 comments Mod
I KNOW THAT TALE! It's great! Xd I will have to read it. Most retelling are. That's cool! I'll let you know what I think. Maybe we could change this topic to Juliet Marillier books?

Hannah | 3223 comments Mod
I won't be able to get it from the library for awhile since I have stuff going the rest of this month. But it's on my AS-soon-as-I-get-back list.


message 10: by Ingrid (new)

Ingrid I LOVE JULIET MARRILLIER!

Katerina (klymene) | 2740 comments Mod
Read Daughter of the Forest, PLEASE, Way! And Heart's Blood was quite good too


message 12: by Ingrid (new)

Ingrid I will, I will. I keep on planning on doing it and then get sidetracked. I'll order it from the library right now.


message 13: by Katerina, Mother Gothel's Cake (new)

Katerina (klymene) | 2740 comments Mod
YAY!!!


message 14: by Ingrid (new)

Ingrid It is ordered!


message 15: by Katerina, Mother Gothel's Cake (new)

Katerina (klymene) | 2740 comments Mod
Mega-YAY!!
Does your county have a small library?


message 16: by Ingrid (new)

Ingrid Province, you mean? No counties here. But unless you mean neighborhood. No, we have a very good library. I mean, look at the website. www.saskatoonlibrary.ca

YOU HAVE COUCHES?!!
Do you get new books fast?


message 18: by Ingrid (last edited Jul 19, 2011 11:02PM) (new)

Ingrid And bean bags that we can sit and read in.

Oh yes, very fast.


message 19: by Katerina, Mother Gothel's Cake (new)

Katerina (klymene) | 2740 comments Mod
Begins to choke Way. Why?! Why do you canadians get an awesome library?
Wait. Do you get better funding?


message 20: by Ingrid (new)

Ingrid Because we're awesome like that. Vancouver has a six story library.

I don't know. We just seem to get the big name ones pretty quickly. The only thing that is hard is getting the books before the other hundreds of people who have them on hold.


message 21: by Katerina, Mother Gothel's Cake (new)

Katerina (klymene) | 2740 comments Mod
Well, find out about the books before everyone else and reserve it. Goodreads is a perfect place to find the books
WTF. I'm gonna go to Vancouver. Just to be in the library. Wait. How big is the fiction section?


message 22: by Ingrid (new)

Ingrid Yeah. You can usually find old books, but new ones or bestsellers are more difficult to reserve.

I don't know. I've never actually been there, but my friends have. I assume the fiction or teens section is huge.

Hannah | 3223 comments Mod
So our library has couches and seats for reading. :D It's awesome. Anyways.

I"m going to the library today./ But I looked up Daughter of the forest. They don't have it. It's terrible. They do have the sequel to Wildwood. So now I have to get Daughter through my other system. GAHR

them=who?


message 27: by Katerina, Mother Gothel's Cake (new)

Katerina (klymene) | 2740 comments Mod
The library. They don't have the book. That's a crime.


message 28: by Hannah, Don't TOUCH my Title Klymy. (new)

Hannah | 3223 comments Mod
They really don't FOR SHAME! I was sad.... I'll have to get it from my other library. GAHRR


message 29: by Katerina, Mother Gothel's Cake (new)

Katerina (klymene) | 2740 comments Mod
How many libraries are there, where you live?!


message 30: by Hannah, Don't TOUCH my Title Klymy. (new)

Hannah | 3223 comments Mod
A bunch...we use multiple systems.


message 31: by Katerina, Mother Gothel's Cake (new)

Katerina (klymene) | 2740 comments Mod
Where I live all the libraries in our county are connected, so if you reserve a book from home, the book can come from any of the libraries in the county, based on which copy of the book is available. If the county system doesn't have it, then we can do inter-county loans. We just request it through a massive catalog (online of course) that covers all the books in the state. But then it takes longer to arrive.


message 32: by Ingrid (new)

Ingrid Let's all describe our libraries!

In the city I live in, there are roughly eight different branches, but they are all interconnected. There is one, two story, main one that carries almost everything and then smaller ones that have less selection, but you can order books from the main one and then pick up the materials up at the one nearest you.

But that is the city system. The city system is connected to a provincial system that is linked to all the big cities and towns across the province. You can order books from any town and it will come to your library. You can also use your library card in any library in Saskatchewan.

Katerina (klymene) | 2740 comments Mod
In the area where I live, there is a city library, which is very closely connected to the county library system. All the county systems in the state are connected to the State system.
Our libraries are generally one level. We have many computers in each library


message 34: by Ingrid (last edited Aug 02, 2011 04:47PM) (new)

Ingrid Yes, we have quite a few computers. Here is a picture of the library I usually go to:

Katerina (klymene) | 2740 comments Mod
The library is the one on the left. I'm not exactly sure what the one on the right is. I know that I see people pay for speeding tickets there, and stuff like that.


message 37: by Hannah, Don't TOUCH my Title Klymy. (new)

Hannah | 3223 comments Mod
There are a bunch of libraries around. Like 3 Main systems. Once u join one u have access to all buildings/ bra he's in the system. Duh. I'll get some pics of the ones we mainly use. I'm on an iPad.....not easy:)

As for holds we can reheat which branch we get it at.


message 38: by Katerina, Mother Gothel's Cake (new)

Katerina (klymene) | 2740 comments Mod
Try that again, because I barely understood any of it.
Way, did you read Daughter of the Forest yet?!


message 39: by Ingrid (new)

Ingrid I got it just yesterday from the library and I've started it. But I must say, wow, the chapters are long. I'm enjoying it so far though. I love Sorcha's and Finnbar's relationship as brother and sister. It is similar to some of my own characters relationships. Connor also reminds me a bit of one of my charries.


message 40: by Hannah, Don't TOUCH my Title Klymy. (new)

Hannah | 3223 comments Mod
I'm just gonna get it on hold. IT wasn't at the library yesterday.


message 41: by Katerina, Mother Gothel's Cake (new)

Katerina (klymene) | 2740 comments Mod
It's AMAZING. And then after that, you have to get Son of the Shadows, I think that one was my favorite. Then it's Child of the Prophecy, and then Heir of Sevenwaters, then Seer of Seven waters.
I like Son of the SHadows best, then Daughter, then Heir, Child, then Seer. Seer is actually pretty new.
I actually read Son of Sevenwaters first. It was so good I decided to read the first one. And it was a delightful surprise to find it was a retelling of the 6 swans.
Once you finish the book, watch these videos. They are stories of the people in Daughter of the Forest. It was SO Cool.

I know I'm totally gushing, but I love this series passionately.

Katerina (klymene) | 2740 comments Mod
But seriously, Oonaugh is the awesomest evil person EVER. Wait, Bellatrix is still awesomer. But Oonaugh has alot more depth.
