Hi :)
Like all oldies, I am rediscovering my youth.

Hence my book currently is

Just So Stories

Rudyard Kipling

Ideal bedtime reading, as I manage to read a tale a night. lol!

My Current Read....

Post by Vampire Girl on Mon 29 Mar 2010 - 22:04

hahahahaha... that book worm is sooooo cute!!! Hmm let's see the book i am reading right now is a sort of self help tome. It is called "Facing your Giants" by Max Lucado. It is sort of helping me to cope with my personal life situation a bit. It's centered around the story of David and Goliath and Saul.. I would be party David and partly Abigail in the story the way it is presented. I am not particularly super religious, but it is helping me to cope with the stresses i am enduring. :heart:

Liked all the harry Potter series.

Just finished reading a Clive Cussler book The Silent Sea. Waiting for his new one, The Spy.
I have read all the Clive Cussler books, find them very enjoyable.

Also like Mathew Reilly, an Ausie Author... the characters are a bit far fetched but a great read.

Like Andy Mcdermott as well. The Hunt for Atlantis, The Tomb of Hercules, The Secret of Excaliber, and The Covenant of Genesis, again a bit far fetched but a good read. :)

If it wasn't for all these Forums I'd have more time to read.. lol!

Ok so everyone knows I like Vampire stories. So one of my favorite authors is Charlaine Harris. She has several supernatural novel series, but her most popular to date is her Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Mysteries Novels.. most notable for the HBO series True Blood which is based off her novels.

This month saw the debut of her most recent release, "Dead in the Family," her 10th installment in her southern vampire series. It definitely gets Vampy Chick's stamp of approval! :twisted:

Saw the film 'Blind side' while on a flight the other month so I decided to buy the book. I quite liked it but if you are not into American Football the book will be hard to get into while the film is good regardless of your sporting tendencies.

Was the book better than the movie? I find a lot of times movies made from books are not as good as the original story because sometimes the story gets lost in translation from the pages to the screen.

Read the first book of the hunger games. Will get around to reading the second one, and plan on reading the saga of the seven suns by Kevin J. Anderson. Read the prequel comic, which was good!

I read the first book and it was surprisingly good. I haven't seen the movie yet. Katniss is a very well written character. Thumbs up

Definitely liked the book.The commercial to the movie got me to read the book! Katniss was cool, the characters compelling. the second one starts off soon after the first one finishes. Will watch it when it goes to dvd. Got so many books to read! tons of scifi from yard sales. actually got rid of some, not enough space.

I dived into the second book immediately as well. I had to know what was going to happen. I am going to try and see the movie this weekend.

Right now I am reading Thomas Hardy's Tess of d' Ubervilles. So far it I am liking it.

I had jury duty Wednesday, and wasn't sure if i wanted to bring an eBook (hunger games trilogy). I finished Wolverine: Weapon X, which was graphic but enjoyed some of the flashbacks to his origins and details to what was going on in the facility.
