I don't really know where to post this so I'll just leave it here. I need a book suggestion for school. The teacher told us to read a "book of our choice" (:rolleyes:) but, in it there has to be two main elements, that is picturing the landscape and love. Also I'd love it to have mystery/murder/horror. I'd read Murder at The Orient Express again, but the only love there I can think of is the love of the workers on the legacy towards the family that had their child kidnapped (haven't read it in a long time so I may be wrong)?

Stargate SG-1: Hydra, very confusing book there were so many different robot versions of SG-1 it was hard to keep track of who was who, the only difference between the robot teams was their names for example SG-Alpha or SG-Gamma, and the last few chapters made no sense whatsoever.

I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone.

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

This was a great book :tmb: I watched the Swedish movie first, about a year ago, and finally finished the book today. I am getting ready to watch the American version on Wednesday, and I am going to rewatch the Swedish verion before then. All the background and extended information was very interesting and a great read. I now have The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest to read, but I will do that in 2013 - 2014.

Anyway, all three books are on my must-read list :p

It took me a while to get back into the swing of reading. This year alone, I have only read 3 books ;__; One was for school, which I really liked (Like Water for Chocolate), and the other was Fight Club. I still even have the entire Hunger Games trilogy to read, so I think that I will read that first one before moving onto the rest of the Millenium books.

Also, I wanted to read the books, and then rewatch the movies right after, and since I dont feel like rewatching them yet, I'll read them prolly read them in 2012-2013. I think I was overexaggerating with 2013-2014, for some reason :p

Think of some books that you have enjoyed reading, then choose other books from the same author. Or, just find a book that you have heard good things about, and just start reading it, if the synopsis interests you.

Battle Royale - The Novel.

http://i.imgur.com/7ktob.png

It's as thick as Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix I reckon. One toss and it'll sure to knock out a dog.

The book is very easy to read to my surprise. The characters are very relatable and you can feel for them effortlesly. Plus, the writing style engages you, making you turn every pages wondering what will happen next. :tmb:
Read a few hundred pages. Things are getting tense and interesting with all the killings and suicides.

I'd totally mail you mine but it's in Romanian. ._. Also, i don't know how many languages it's been translated into, since it was originally in French. T_T Luckily for me, Brussolo's books are really popular in Romania for some reason.

Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. I thought it was fantastic, but unfortunately it is difficult to explain what it is about without spoiling the plot. The blurb and trailer for the film adaptation don't seem to manage to explain the story very well either. Just take my word for it that it is really good. :p

I'm going to have to try out some more of Ishiguro's novels. I'll probably read The Remains of the Day next, although I've already seen the film so I roughly know the story. Actually, judging from what I've heard about the narration in the novel, I've only just realised while typing this that The Remains of the Day is really hard to describe without spoiling it as well. Hm...

"Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter" by Seth Grahame-Smith

Much like "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies", the main joke is the concept. The book itself is mostly written as a straight-up biography of Abraham Lincoln, if he had been a vampire hunter. There are jokes and overarching themes, but the main joke is the absurdity of it all. But that's what makes it fun to read. I can recommend it to everyone, and am looking forward to the movie.

"misery" by Stephen King.

Just, wow.
The book was full of surprises and unexpected things.
I just loved it.
"Africa".

415 pages in 4 days.. I really liked it. D:

*****SPOILER*****

And the way annie dies.. Or we just think she does. The way she wasn't in the room, although she collapsed there, drenched in champagne and blood. "Goddess". I still don't believe she died, although the policemen found her in the barn. The way she tortured Paul.

The way she chocked on "misery's return".

The rats. The missing letters. "Africa". The drugs, the axe, the match and burning pile of pages.

And the way Annie looked, before Paul got out of the room. I don't know how she looked, but I created an image for her.

The psycho thoughts throughout the book were also breathtaking.

*****/SPOILER*****

If there's a movie, I can't wait to see it. I may have found my favorite author. He's definitely as good as Serge Brussolo. They both describe horror so well, it's unbelievable.

This book creeped me out like no other. I always came for more. These four days, I didn't study for my exams, just to read it. It was addictive. I want more.

I definitely recommend it to everybody, regardless of your preference in books.

Demon Lovers: Witchcraft, Sex, and the Crisis of Belief (http://www.amazon.com/Demon-Lovers-Witchcraft-Crisis-Belief/dp/0226772624)

This is one of the best books I've ever read on the subject. It's up there with Christina Larner's Enemies of God. It's a very intense and thorough examination of the theology and psychology of the witchcraft theorists of the 15th and 16th centuries, and how their writings betray deep anxieties about their own beliefs as they sought to find ways of proving the existence of demons and the spirit world at large through their interactions with "witches". Most insightfully, the authors of the most influential witch hunting treatises are revealed to have been reluctant skeptics rather than militant misogynists or credulous dogmatists.

Wind through the Keyhole. It was ok but I had expected it to tell more about Roland's past than it did.

still on this, i have like a third left, but i can't find motivation to continue it, it's kind of dull.

on the other hand, i just started reading The Fault In Our Stars by John Green today, which is amazing, i can see why it's so popular. i still have like 120 pages out of 300 something, can't wait to finish it. unfortunately all i could do is read it online, and in english, as it's yet to be translated in romanian and it's nowhere to be found in our libraries. shame.

Grrr!

Anyway, I posted here because Looking for Alaska sounded familiar to me. Then I remember one of my friends read a quote to me from that book and I was...intrigued

"I am going to take this bucket of water and pour it on the flames of hell, and then I am going to use this torch to burn down the gates of paradise so that people will not love God for want of heaven or fear of hell, but because He is God."

I read about 20 pages from The Haunted Vagina. It's pretty stupid in the sense that, "I feel dumber, now." Some of it was funny, but overall, it's pretty bad.

Though, It's only about 100 pages, I think, so maybe if I read a page a day, I can finish before the year is up :whi:

I can't even not laugh hard while reading this. I just Amazoned it

In Carlton Mellick III's fourteenth bizarro novel, The Haunted Vagina, the reader is presented with another Mellickian mind-bending concept--what if your girlfriend's vagina was a gateway to another world? We are introduced to Steve and his girlfriend Stacy, whose "haunted" vagina is a problem for their sex life. When a skeleton-like creature emerges from Stacy's vagina, the two decide to explore what may be inside of her.

When Steve explores (and becomes trapped in) Stacy's vaginal world, he reflects upon his relationship with her. Mellick makes it obvious through clear dialogue and abstract imagery that their relationship is not healthy. Despite these strange occurrences and relationship problems, Steve remains hopelessly devoted to Stacy. This love is the basis for Mellick's return to a common theme: the power, figuratively and literally, a women's vagina can hold over a man.

The joys and terrors that Steve finds in the vagina reflect his relationship with Stacy. The power and trust struggles are seen from inside both characters--inside Steve, who is the narrator of the story, and from literally inside Stacy. This allows the reader a uniquely personal viewpoint of Steve and Stacy's downward spiral as lovers.

Mellick has made a name for himself by writing consistently engaging, strange, and downright weird stories. His characters can sometimes get lost in the weirdness. The Haunted Vagina is not really about the hallucinogenic world Steve finds inside Stacy; it is about the characters themselves. Their doubts and fears fuel the plot.

Fan's looking only for Mellick's hardcore gore and extremely bizarre imagery may be disappointed, as this book is more subtle than its predecessors. Don't be mistaken: this is still very much a horror book that explores the vagaries and dangers of lust, love and obsession. In this Bizarro novel, Mellick illustrates the human condition better than many authors of "realism."

Despite having dealt with similar themes before (e.g. Razor Wire Pubic Hair and The Steel Breakfast Era), this is Mellick's most mature and effective representation of men's sexual fears. His sparse style paints an intimate portrait of Steve and Stacy's relationship. The Haunted Vagina deserves attention; it's among Mellick's very best.

God, what a very depressing book.

The thing that was impressive is how the author was able to come across as really a young teen. The wording, the structuring of phrases, even the thoughts that went through the kid's head. I really did feel like I was reading a 15 year old's diary.

Tomb Raider Angel of Darkness, by J.R.Milward (our very own Jenni/Greenkey). Finally got around to reading it (Kindle). It's no secret that I don't like the game, but I do feel the story had merit, but got kind of lost to me while I was plodding through the game. Jenni does a wonderful job of breathing life to the story and humanising Lara in ways the game never did (imo). I admit to being slightly concerned when Lara names her subconscious self, but this allowed for a dialogue where otherwise there'd be silence or mere 'I thought' moments, which may not have worked so well in delving into Lara's persona. Some areas in the game were altered or cut down a bit to avoid mere descriptions of gameplay such as Lara climbing or just pulling switches or whatever which, if you have played the game you don't need to know about. This allowed for the action to flow fluidly from scene to scene. The descriptions are wonderfully written and full of detail, if, at times I felt slightly overwhelmed by similes. You don't need to have played the game (or enjoyed it) to read and enjoy the book, and the book, imo, is so much more pleasing as the story is full of mythological intrigue, which Jenni captures so well with a sophisticated yet easy to follow literary style.

That's enough of my shoddy attempt at a mini review. :p.

Cursor's Fury, by Jim Butcher, for me. I'm only four books into the Furies of Calderon series, but it's proving to be excellent escapism; it has plenty of pace, strong characterisation, and memorable imagery.

Currently reading Inferno by Dan Brown. So far it's a very solid and entertaining thriller with the usual up- and downsides of a Dan Brown novel. Although you really mustn't question Robert Langdon "coincidentally" being pulled into all of these crazy conspiracy theories when reading it. I mean, this is the fourth time it's happened and he still acts as if he'd never been in a situation like this before :p.
