Currently, I am reading "The Sweet Far Thing" by Libba Bray...

It has taken me a while to get into it...

It is book #3 in The Gemma Doyle Trilogy. It used to be a trilogy at least. Now I think there are going to be four books.

I HIGHLY RECOMEND READING IT!

The Gemma Doyle Trilogy?

Well, it is about this girl, who goes to this school, meets some people, can travel to this place called The Realms, is tying to kill/get rid of this mean lady who wants to rule the world, and is trying to find her place in the world.

It is kinda hard to explian. Just go to your library or buy A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray, give it a try, see if you like it.

I think I read somewhere that Libba Bray was originally going to write a trilogy, but she had too many ideas so it is going to be a trilogy with a few extra books....

MAYBE I AM WRONG.

Don't trust me 100%, because I can't remember where I heard this...

I think I remember reading that somewhere too though I think it remains a trilogy for now. *sigh* I haven't even read The Sweet Far Thing! It's not at the library..yet. (hopefully?) If not, I guess I'll just have to wait until I can order it from the bookstore.

truthfully, I didn't like TSFT as much as I did the other two books...

it took me a LONG time to get into it...

I LOVED the sweet far thing! I instantly fell in love with the first two and when I read TSFT I really didn't want it to be over. And it was pretty cool because it so much longer than the others I kept thinking it would be over soon and then I would realize "I'm only half-way through...YES!" And then I was really depressed when i really was done with it. But this series and the pellinor books are tied for third in my ranking which really good because a book has to be pretty special to get a ranking from me.

Anyway, I just finished reading the ninth Pendragon this morning so I'm still deciding what I want to read next. The ending was a total cliff-hanger though.

I wish they would release the date for the next pendragon, DJ MacHale just leaving it with the shadow of impending doom over our heads like that. Mad gaa! I want to know who's going to win!

TSFT is not my fav out of the series, AGATB is better by far for me.

I agree kitty


I STILL haven't read #9 Pendragon! I love that series...

but I have seen the cover, and bobby looks like a weirdo to me from that pic...the pic of him on the first book makes him look cute, but now...no me gusta

He does look really strange, but my theory is that it is because he has been on Ibara living a more primitive life.

I just got done reading Ever by Gail Carson Levine about twenty minutes ago and that was pretty good, but my favorite book by her is still The Two Princesses of Bamarre.

Oo Ever? It sounds good, but it isn't at my library, it appears. Is it a new release?
I love the books by Gail Carson Levine. The Two Princesses of Bamarre were good but my favorite has got to be Fairest.

I liked Fairest a lot too. I think Ever came out somewhat recently, but I'm not sure. If you liked Fairest you will definitely like this one.

I know, I just spent about 200 dollars of birthday money on books and they are finally coming, and they are all the first ones to series, so I will be busy for a while.

I can relate GTB! Very Happy I have so many books I want to read once I finish the Pellinor books that I don't know which one to read first (though I'm in no hurry to finish the Pellinor books).

Wow, $200! Most I've ever spent (in a short period) on books is around $50. My mom's constantly giving me the "guilt" talk after I buy a book, so I generally don't buy too many books.

My mom doesn't like me buying books just because she thinks I won't read them again.

Truth is, I will probably read them 5-6 more times, and I will lend them to a bazillion people.

I like getting use out of my books

I know. I really like owning books just to know that if I do want to read them again I can, and I LOVE lending them out to people.

Right now I'm reading Ink Exchange, by Melissa Marr. I'm close to done, but I should be doing my homework so i won't be able to finish it till later.

the Luxe was good if you want a really light and fairly meaningless read, which at the time was exactly what I needed so it worked. I'm like halfway through the city of Bones and I am absolutely loving it. I think it might even deserve a ranking when I'm done with it which with me is not easy for a book to get. Although I'm not quite sure what that ranking would be yet.
