I wanted to see if this worked.. This is the 8th book in the series. When I saw this on tv I nearly peed my pants 'cause I thought they were making a tv series..but no it's a new book. Maybe we should include 'House of night' series into our club since we've been talking about it so much. I'm on book 4 but the first book is still fresh in my mind. And how was everyone's weekend?
Andrea, my weekend was productive!! Well, reading-wise anyway... I already finished The Hunger Games and can't wait for the discussion questions!! (It's like an essay test, only FUN!! lol) and have started in on a new book called My Dirty Little Book of Stolen Time by Liz Jensen. It's about a prostitute in oh... I don't remember... 18something Denmark that gets transported to the 20th century via a time machine and her endevores... It's pretty interesting so far and I haven't even gotten to the heart of the story yet... How was your weekend? Have you started on The Hunger Games yet?
Awww Yeah I finished Hunger Games already! Awesome!! (No spoilers!) Our Library down here is awesome it's like 3 stories looks like Mall of America! I nearly pooped myself when I saw all the books lol. But they have this online thing where I can order books thru the catalog and they call me when they are ready :) I can't keep buying books...and I want to finish the series and don't wanna read any of my 300 TBR books...so library it is! I'm going to pick up the last two books of Hunger Games, Vampire Academy (#1) and Succubus(#1) series (Thanks to Lindsay), House of Night (#4-#8) andddd Extras (uglies series) So I'm pretty much in love with all the picks we've had so far.
Aw,Crap I didn't read Dracula!
OOO I'm reading Flora Segunda by Ysabeau S. Wilce. About a little witch that lives in a house with 11,000 magical rooms. It's so much fun! Someone already mooched it--I was going to pass it on to Lindsay or one of you guys cuz it's fab! Def something we would all like. I don't think there will be anymore after this book.
Yeah I've heard of your book...I think it's on my wishlist I dunno...Tell me how it is. Anyway ya'll have the bestest week! *hugs* my virtual sistas!
I LOVED the Hunger Games series!! I read all three books in a row...which is not common for me at all!
As for the House of Night series, I have considered adding the first book to our bookclub. Myself, I would like a re-read of Marked...I probably would continue on and read the series straight through again only with the addition of the newest novel!
I have a strong feeling we will be having a snow day here in Lexington tomorrow, so I was planning on doing a little research into books we can/should/need to read! :)
I want to read the House of Night series. We've had a snow/ice day yesterday and today. We can't get out of our driveway and most of the roads (and businesses) are closed here so we've had plenty of time to research and read.
Stephanie, I saw Gathering Blue on your want list... I read The Giver, and then stepped right into Gathering Blue, I have The Messanger at home, somewhere, lol, and am pretty excited to read it (when I get the chance). Gathering Blue was a lovely book, full of action, and the plot was pretty amazing!! I loved the book and the characters in it. The ending let me down a bit, but otherwise, I definately recommend the book to you and your family!!
90º ?!?!? 90º ?!?!? I think we should switch houses for awhile, we're under at least 6 inches of snow right now, with another due by the weekend!! I'm TIRED of the snow!! I want Spring!! (or 90º temps, lol)
Heather, yea Manda has read The Giver and Gathering Blue, but I've never read either. I'm want to read them. We just mooched The Giver and it's on its way so we'll be reading that one soon...well between school books and the books for the group :)
