Okay, just finished Sunshine by Robin McKinley which was GOOD, and Specials by Scott Westerfeld, which was SO SO GOOD.

I LOVED the ending of Specials. Especially the punchline. Wow. That guy is seriously talented. XD

I've just started reading a book called "Don't Ever Tell" by Kathy O'Beirne. It's an autobiographical book about the life of the author, and the cruel, harsh suffereing she endured at the hands of her Father and the nuns of the Magdalen schools and laundries in Ireland in the 1970's.

I've only got about 100 pages in but already it's horrible to read about. And knowing that it's a true story, that it actually happened to this girl, this woman is just...mind boggling. To think that these places were open in such modern times, and girls could be sent there for simply smiling at a boy (which encouraged 'impure thoughts') is just...

I've not finished it yet but so far it's really good. Just really sad to think of the hundreds and hundreds of women damaged by those places.

Right now I'm not reading anything XD lol I had enough reading to do for the last 8 weeks and now I'm blah even though I love reading. Besides I'm getting a weeny teensy bit tired of always reading the same books over and over again so yeah... I'm getting some new ones at Christmas though lol so I'll get back to reading then probably, and hopefully I won't get as many books to read as I did last semester in school...

Okay. Books under my bed right now that I borrowed from the library and liked: Sister to the Wolf, by Maxine Trottier. Alpha dog, by Jennifer Ziegler. The Naming, by Alison Croggon (this one is a quartet! Yessss!). The Warrior Heir, by Cinda Williams Chima.

And the one I just finished now, which was of course incredibly well-written, and also very sad, The Rules of Survival by Nancy Werlin.

ohh that's an awesome series becca.

so I read in the last day and night 4 books...this is why I hardly ever buy books. I would be broke. Cause I can go through 20 books in as many days. Well anyway:

2 more of Meg Cabot's work--it was just what I expected, enjoyed them very much.

13 Little Blue Envelopes--now this one was a shocker. I hated the cover--still do actually. I know you're not supposed to judge books by their covers and all that, but this kind of cover gives off a 'trying too hard' vibe. Like 'please buy me cause there's a girl in low-riding jeans on my cover.' I usually avoid such books just for the principle of the thing. But after I kept seeing it all over and read a good review about it, I decided to give it a try, and was pleasantly surprised, because that book is quite frankly mad.

It is unbelievable but excellent and very very good. You can tell by little details that the author throws in that she has really been to all those places or at least knows them very well...(example: in Britain when the train doors open a clipped British voice warns you to 'mind the gap.' lmao. I know this is true only because I was in Britain.)...and she writes about them very well. I still don't like the cover though. It looks NOTHING like the main character would look like. Thank Merlin.

I am the Messenger--Now I LOVED the cover on this book. and I loved the book too. It was funny sometimes, sad sometimes and incredibly real throughout. Then the author drops the bomb...lmaooo...the ending would be corny if it weren't so insanely right. Or rightly insane. ^^

I'm about to start Uglies...I have a long list of books to read.

Listening at the Gate--Betsy James. Man, this was one amazing book... *smiles*

It was so good that I couldn't read anything else after, I had to reread it. Yeah, that doesn't happen too often anymore.

I've just read "13 Little Blue Envelopes" after reading your rec a few posts back streams. I thought it was very good, although the ending left me feeling a little unsatisfied. I would have liked to know what was in Peg's last letter.

Quote :
You can tell by little details that the author throws in that she has really been to all those places or at least knows them very well...(example: in Britain when the train doors open a clipped British voice warns you to 'mind the gap.' lmao. I know this is true only because I was in Britain.)...and she writes about them very well.

That was true...although there were two very glaring inconsistencies to me (as an English person). The first is when she's reading the letter on the plane - Peg tells her that there's a ten pound note in the envelope "it's the purple thing with the picture of the queen on" - wrong. The purple notes are 20, ten pound notes are the orange ones. The second thing is the PIN number for the debit card - the pin is supposedly PANTS, but it's impossible to have a five-figured PIN number, they're four figures max. So those two little things annoyed me, but I enjoyed the book overall.

I'm now reading Uglies by Scott Westerfeld, and I'm enjoying that so far, and I'll be reading the next 2 afterwards!

I'm currently at "A farewell to Arms" by Hemingway. I found it boring at the begining, then it got ok (mainly because the action moved from the front of the first world war to a hospital in a city XD) and now the main character is returning to front. And that's where I stopped reading for a while. I should get back to it, but I don't really like war-books. The only hope I have is that the war-scenes will soon be over cuz *points to title* farewell to arms... I hope so!

I just finished "Pretties" and I'm waiting for "Specials" to be delivered (hopefully it'll arrive tomorrow!)

I didn't like the end of Pretties sad I didn't want what happened to happen...but Streams told me that I would like the end of Specials...so we'll see

yeah, the ending of pretties is sorta sad...and specials is really sad too, at times...but trust me on this one, the ending is SUPERB.

Oh by the way, I saw you said earlier that you read the princess diaries...did you read any of Meg Cabot's other books? She has several adult series out as well as many other teenage series...because the PD's are my least favorite series of all her books, and she's one of my favorite authors XD

Hehee I spent this weekend rereading Queen of Babble by Meg Cabot and a sad story about Cystic Fibrosis. Two opposite ends of the spectrum, but ah well. ^^

Wheeew, finally finished "A farewell to arms" XD

Now I started "My name is Red" by Orhan Pamuk. I'm only at chapter 4 at the moment, but I'm really enjoying it up to now, especially because of the oririental atmosphere - Istanbul - middle ages?? don't know the exact period, but anyway, long time ago.. - and the way it's written - each chapter form another person's perspective. Love it!

Well I've felt the need to re-read His Dark Materials yet again so I'm halfway through The Subtle Knife.

Also reading Stephen Kings Hearts of Atlantis again. One of my favourite books by this fantastic man.
