I have to admit, I enjoyed it, since it was a lot better than the book we had to read before was Charles Dickens' Great Expectations, which I HATED with all of my life.
It was a horrible book, and I loathed the main character Pip. He was so stupid, I just wanted to slap him.
LOL, I would love to help you slap Pip. I agree, he was stupid, especially about Estella.

currently, I am reading the series 'sweep' by Cate Tierman.

I have to say, I don't know if you would like it... it's more l. j. smith than Stephenie Meyer.

I have to go, I'll explain more later.

Cullengirl14 wrote..Brisingr was interesting, i remember not enjoying it as much as the other two. Isn't Paolini writing a fourth and final book at some point? I thought that Brisingr was the last because i'm sure i heard that it was a trilogy. I will probably read it because i want to know what happens to Eragon and Saphira, whether they finish their training etc.

Yes, the Inheritance series has been extended into a 'Cycle', with a 4th book, and its going to be ridiculously easy to figure out what will happen in it. Still excited for it. You would have read about it on Shur'tugal.com, because its the most popular fansite.

I need to go to the library and pick up all my Sherlock books, but in the mean time my mom's reading Poison Study, so when ever she's not reading it I'll steal it and skip to all the good Valek parts. :D

Right now i have a few books that i started but have not finished. The ones i am actually working on are: The lucky one by Nicholas Sparks, and im still trying to get through Bram Stoker's Dracula.

The ones that i was reading but set aside cause i just couldnt get through it are: Memnoch the Devil by Anne Rice (too much God and bible references for me) :roll: , Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy (actually its a huge book with the whole series in it, which is like 6 or 7 books i think) :| by Douglas Adams, Grimms Fairy Tales, and The shining by Stephen King (i saw the movie first and i now whats coming, i just cant bring myself to finish it now) :? :oops:. Hopefully i will finish ALL of these one day, cause i have been buying books like crazy lately :lol: ;)

NOTHING!!! Ha ha


I finished reading Catching Fire last night. Man it was so good. Definitely had some twists I didn't see coming. But now I have to wait for the 3rd to come out. and that probably won't be for a long while now.

I think next I am going to read Princess Academy by Shannon Hale. It was recommended to me by a girl at my church. I hope I like it.

I have read this book several times. First time was in high school. I LOVED it! Yup, it's ridiculous long, but oh so good! So many levels and very witty and though provoking. Although, I did read it during the summer. I hope you get back to it!
