I don't care what ANYONE says, the twilight series (mostly breaking dawn) is an amazing series! I fall in love with it every time I read it..

I really love the House of Night series, my second fave series of all time.

I'm wanting to read the hunger games but..I have put it off for awhile. Lol

I used to read all the time, now I never read at all.

House of night...hmmm..I honestly think the series is overrated.
I mean,Zoey is annoying.So is Stevie Rea and Heath just irritated me.
I only read the books because of Stark haha!

I LOVE the Percy Jackson serie,and the spin off & I've enjoyed the Hunger Games (looking forward to the movie!).
For school I'm reading Land of the Living by Nikki French.

Bracca meas vescimini.

I've been contemplating buying that book forever I loved the Twilight series but have always been a little sceptical about the whole alien thing...
Then again I was pretty sceptical about the whole vampire thing as well but I enjoyed the saga so I guess i'll have to buy The Host now!

Currently, i'm reading Redwall by Brian Jaques. I loved the series when I was a kid but never read the books before. SO mad when I found out it's not the first one I always hate starting in the middle (or in this case, near the end) of a series!
Oh well, it's pretty good so far!

I enjoyed The Host as well. It has many of the same flaws as the Twilight series but both are guilty pleasures of mine. My biggest complaint with The Host is that Stephenie Meyer is about as subtle with her foreshadowing as a smack in the face. That and the ending, but I won't spoil it for you guys.

I'm finishing up re-reading The Horse Whisperer. And waiting impatiently for April when Christopher Moore's new book comes out!

Another book I started recently is Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I thought it would be funny, but its just like the original. Super complicating, and not too be rude, but BORING.
Last year I read Prom and Prejudice. I thought it was super cute(:

Baby you light up my world like nobody else.

OK I have to know who Christopher Moore is? Since I like all the books you've mentioned I suspect I might enjoy his work, too. And I'm always looking for reading material!

I also couldn't help responding because my book's been described as 'Twilight meets The Horse Whisperer' and you mentioned both in one post - we're definitely on the same page here :)

I just finished a book that my mom gave me and my sister's for Christmas, based on my aunt's recommendation. It's called The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Anne Shaffer and Anne Harrows. It is an AMAZING book and is written in quite a unique style. It could probably be termed historical fiction because it is set in post-WWII England and the British Channel Island of Guernsey.

Right now I'm re-reading Inca Gold by Clive Cussler. It's probably my favorite of the Dirk Pitt novels by Clive Cussler. I also just got finished reading Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson...for the first time. Lol It's one of those books that I've always meant to read, just something "better" always came along. So, when my eight-year-old told me that he'd read it, I decided it was high time the momma read it too.

Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.

Christopher Moore is probably my all time favorite author! His books are hilarious.
He actually has a trilogy about vampires that kind of pokes fun at the genre. My favorite is the second one in the series You Suck. You can read a synopsis of it here: Christopher Moore, author of The Stupidest Angel, Lamb, and Fluke

Fortunately you don't have to read the first book to get that one, so it's a good place to start. A Dirty Job and Lamb are also excellent, and if you're a fan of Shakespeare, Fool is pretty good too.

His books do contain some adult situations though, so I wouldn't recommend them to folks who are younger or easily offended.

thanks!! Funny is a huge selling point - I will definitely check him out (although until I finish writing the sequel I won't have much reading time, boo). I don't mind adult situations and I'm not easily offended, so no prob there :)
