I'm reading The Golden Notebook by Doris Lessing, and it's good but kind of tough reading, so I keep having to take breaks and go watch bad TV so my brain doesn't blow up. :

I just finished Boy in Striped Pajamas by John Boyne. It was a really great book! It is written kinda strangely but I greatly recommend it!

Could any of you direct me to a book that explains how you could take a healthy, 5'9 , 16 year old boy and transform him into a 6'7" werewolf?

Has anyone here read "The Time Traveler's Wife" I'm struggling in the beginning of this. It's slow but so many friends have highly recommended it and it will be a movie in 2009 sometime!

I also have "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" waiting to get read.. anybody??

I want to buy "The Hunger Games" since SM highly recommends it!

ANY suggestions is welcome. I'm re-reading New Moon again because Time Traveler's Wife is so slow!!

I just finished Cathy's Key and now I'm re-reading Cathy's Book
If you haven't read them, I'd highly recommend them, they're as awesome as Twilight ;)

i've had the hungry games for three weeks now and only half way... i've read The Host three times in one week right before picking up Hungry Games... I don't think it's my taste. I can't seem to pick it up and finish it.

I have a question, I HATE to read because I dont' want to waste time reading somethign I'm not going to enjoy... any suggestions. I want a love story like "the host" <3 ian... but nothing X rated or anything like that. Any suggestions? Just curious.

Thanks

Have you been reading from Stephenie Meyer's Amazon Book List? I have. I really liked her suggestion of Eva Ibbotson's A Company of Swans. It is set in the early 1900's, so it's not going to be anything like The Host in that respect. It's not X rated, but it has a certain amount of intrigue and action. So I have read another Ibbotson book Madensky Square which I liked almost as much.

Oooo really! Is it a good book? I'm a music teacher. Keep me posted on your progress in songwriting. I love songwriting myself, used to be in a band and was a church music director. Have you any music posted on-line? I have friends of friends (or brother of friend in one case) who are musicians in Nashville and my nephews in a band. Sorry to get off-topic.

I hope you like it. I found a copy at the library, but I think I will reread it again. What was cool when I was reading it was that I just met someone from one of the countries the book is set in and had friends who visited that country, too. I'm checked off Pride and Prejudice (then I HAD to read Sense and Sensibility) Speaker for the Dead (and since it had a book that preceed it, Ender's Game, I read that too) A Company of Swans, To Kill a Mockingbird (which was the Big Read this year, and prolly my favorite book of all time - no offence Stephenie), I'm at Chapter 12 of Jane Eyre (I read Wuthering Heights first, big mistake but at least I had an annotated copy, which I highly recommend) and I've watched the Princess Bride about two dozen times or more. Okay, I'll shut up now . . . .
