PostSubject: Book worm.   Mon Nov 15, 2010 2:25 pm

Hi,

If you are a book-worm and would like to share your books with other people here's the right place for you!!!

I'm a book lover and would love to spend hours and hours into reading books, I find some books very amusing and inspiring and would love to share it with others and so I came up with this idea!

This is the whole matter:
1) You Read a book
2) If the book is great- SHARE IT!!

It's important that you read the book and then share it.

Here's my book:
*Moa's Last Dancer*



Long story made short:
Li was born into poverty in the Li Commune near the city of Qingdao in the Shandong province of People's Republic of China. At the age of eleven, he was selected by Madame Mao's cultural advisers to attend the Beijing Dance Academy, where students endured 16-hour days of training.He was one of the first students from the Beijing Dance Academy to go to the United States.

I'ma book-worm, but it has been a long time since I've read because of school and such.

The last book I read was "quidditch through the ages", and the last actual book I read was "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," All I have to say is, J.K Rowling, you have a new fan.

I don't have a favorite book, (although I throrougly enjoyed Life of Pi), but I have a favorite author. Kate DiCamillo. She harnesses your emotions, and she has powers of allegory and writing that have remained unmatched by anything since I first picke dup "The Tale of Desperaux" in 3rd grade.

definitely a book worm. and let me just tell you right now that margaret peterson haddix is amazing!

i love haddix and cornelia funke (inkheart series and theif lord) and i want to read the hunger games next idk who the author is but my sister says the books are awesome. right now im reading a pretty good book called Troy High by Shana Norris. its not really my type of book though. no offense to stephanie meyers, but she writes at a second grade level. again not trying to be mean but i mean its for teens soooo...

anyway, if you like fantasy read inkheart series. im also gonna read a book called beautiful creatures (might be a series) and i think older people on this forum would like it.

Haddix? The one who wrote the Shadow Children series? I read those in fifth grade, I swallowed them whole. She is surely a master of suspence. I loved her books, how could I have forgotten abotu her?

I haven't read much of Cornelia Funke, but I read Inkheart and loved it. She has a wonderful writing style, but they could certainly get dull at times. However, you should really read them due to the wonderful mastery she has over world-building. I read Dragon Rider a looooong time ago, and it is also a great book.

READ THE HUNGER GAMES. If you like Haddix, you will love The Hunger Games. The second book is not really all that great, but the first one makes up for it and the third one makes you completely forget about it as it bombards you with pure, undistilled awesomeness.

Stephanie Meyers should be ashamed to call herself a "writer". The prose she uses is reminiscent of Mary Sue fanfics, and the plots are basically non-existent, and, when present, patently ridiculous. She has potential (however small it might be) in characterization, if it weren't for the dull main characters.

@Sarah and other Otaku: MANGA FTW.

yes, i agree about funke. at times in the inkheart book, i feel asleep :p (probably cuz i read it at eleven at night, but whatever) and stephanie meyers should be banned from publishing books. she could have made cool characters out of jasper and alice and she just left them alone. no character development whatsoever.

Oh, I wouldn't discourage her from writing, and I am strongly against censorship even if she deserves it.

HOWEVER! She needs practice. A few year's worth, maybe more. And a screen of editors. Once she can write something mildly decent, we'll see.

My newest favorite author to add to the author list is:

Jonathan Strout
He is the writer of the Bartimaeus Triliogy. Such a good sense of humor, much snarkiness and I wouldn't recommend them to younger readers, as they're confusing, and the second and third book are extremely dark.

Brian Jacques
The author of the Redwall Abbey Story things. (There like 20 books and he's still writing happily). They are such classics for me. :]


~More to come but for now I must.. leave D:<~

Im currently reading a book called Small Steps by Louis Sachar. I have to read it for reading class, but seriously, im falling in love with the book.

I love Madeline O'Lengle. Her stories are vibrant, unique, and beautiful... A Wrinkle in Time. Still my favorite book. x3

MANGA BASEDD, FullMetal Alchemist, Bleach, and Clannad.

Oh yes, Madeline O'Lengle. Oooooooooh, yes.

@Pokeranger: I Love Harry Potter! It rules. There is no other way to put it. I'm a proud Ravenclaw, my favorite spell is Accio, my patronus is a ferret, and my favorite characters are: The Weasleys, Luna, Lupin, Tonks, Mc Gonagall, Neville... *rambles on and on for ages*

Does anyone here like classics?

Oh Thnx People For Your Co-operation! Very Happy

Classics??? uh-huh

We had The Merchant Of Venice in SCHOOOOL Last Year!!! It was so very boring.
And this year we have The Tempest. Until now nothing special just bore-ness.

Today's book is a major hit in the book world. It maybe an old book but yet it will remain great.

My Sister's Keeper.



It's a great book.

~XOXO

Yes, I'm a bookworm. Sort of.

I enjoy reading school books(when and where I'm not supposed to read, I learn more that way), and fact books where I can learn stuff from. I also enjoy fantasy and sci-fi novels. Not that interested in reading love-themed books, those are usually boring. Over-describing books make me tired.
I've read a few book series. The individual(non-series) books aren't that memorable to me. Neutral

The series I've read through, are:
Harry Potter:
 

The Chronicles of Narnia:
 

Animorphs!:
 

I've tried reading Lord of the Rings, but I failed half through the first book. As I said, I find it hard reading over-describing books. But I did finish The Hobbit, though.

Did you read it all?
Because you probably stopped before they met the witches and went to this surreal place where I didn't have much of a idea what was going on. :O
I LOVE SNAPE PEWPEWPEPWPE
Classics.. Not yet, plan on reading The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn, and Anne of Green Gables though.

:PP
