    I just finished The Taker by Alma Katsu, I have mixed feelings about it, loved the characters more than the story itself but I did enjoy it and will probably end up reading the whole trilogy, I just wish there was another author out there who had a somewhat similar style to Anne Rice but with different kinds of stories, any suggestions? I did buy The Wolf Gift but I am the kind that won’t let go of her books until I am done and not patient enough to read and then wait for her to start on the second one so I am kind of saving it haha

    I usually don’t read a book if I already watched the movie or don’t watch a movie if I read the book, I am weird, I know!

    I just finished the Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society; it’s not perfect but I liked it and it made me want to visit Guernsey.

    i just saw the movie. it was quite strange, but not bad or something. i thought it would be a funny movie, but it wasn’t πŸ™‚

    in a scale from zero to ten, where fear.com is the zero and inception is ten, i gave it 4 πŸ™‚

    pros: good editing, good cinematography, cool action sequences

    cons: story got slow sometimes, nothing really original

    Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter was a great book. I have friends that told me not to go as the movie and the book have the title in common and not much else. I am reading Power of ICU The End Of Student Apathy…Reviving Engagement and Rsponsibility. Anyone that is an educator would love the book–great ideas. I have to read a book on the reading list to demonstrate how I do book share project to my class. I have an older book Lois Duncan’s Stranger With My Face.

    I loved Lois Duncan’s books. Sad true story, her daughter was murdered in 1989 and Duncan said in an interview that she felt it was partly a result of the supernatural elements in her books, that somehow the universe was telling her it wasn’t pleased. So she swore she’d never write that sort of plot again.

    And now I’m reading “The Gods of Gotham” by Lyndsey Faye (who’s a friend of a friend of mine), it’s set in New York City in 1845, just as the city’s police force is being founded. I just started it, but so far very good.

    I am debating reading “Les Miserables” by Victor Hugo; has anyone read it?

    I have, Kilroy. In my opinion Hugo’s books usually difficult ones to get into. Great read, but not for everyone. I recommend an abridged version.

    Thanks, Commune. I’m only considering it because Mr. K & I are big fans of the musical but there are parts of the plot that don’t make sense, plus I know there’s much more to the story. All the reviews I’ve read say that there are huge chunks of the book that are very skippable

    Kilroy that is one of my daughter’s favorite books! Yes she had to push to read it, but she loved it.

    I’m going to have to check it out, Commune, see if I can get on my Nook. Sounds interesting.

    Reverting to my childhood, I am currently reading “The Boxcar Children” — short stories written for beginning readers, loved them as a kid and even though they are far-fetched as an adult, I am still enjoying them!
