16th-Apr-2005 10:56 pm (UTC)
*Eeee!* Bless you child!

But I haven't read Lord of the Rings or Ivanhoe. And it feels like I read so little of Macbeth that I shouldn't list it.

WhoHoo! I just wandered on here and want to add my two bits--I hate Scarlet Letter it is just toooo wordy. In fact, I hate just about anything from that era to Hemingway, where somebody figured out how to streamline words. Don't ever try The Last of the Mohicans is wordy beyond words.

I can't believe you've never read anything Lord of the Rings! Actually, I never read it until the movies came out. If you love YA then start with The Hobbit it isn't as complicated of a read as the others. (Tolkien had this love affair with making up his own languages and the deeper you get into the thing, the less straight english there is.)

Daughters of the Moon
I've completed 1-4 ... or maybe 1-5... but they are soooo good.

Number the Stars
That was the one with the Jewish girl during WWII, right? Well, if it was, I loved that book. It was so good. I remember reading it in... the 4th or 5th grade... I think. I'm hoping that is the book that I'm thinking of. It may not be...

Candide...
I read that last year in French class, and well, since it was written in French... I kinda didn't understand it, and I thought it was a drama, turns out it was funny. So I really need to get to reading that.

Anyway... yeah, I might take some of those nooks into account next time I head to the library. Which won't be for a while, though, seeing as I have a shitload of fines... woops!

Eeee! I'm so excited someone else has read them. That's so cool. There is a spin-off series by the same woman... but they are starring boys. I don't know if it's boys from the Daughter of Moon series or not. There are so many of them. I'm so behind.

Indeed it is. I just read it a few years ago. It was really good.

Yeah. Get the English translation :P It's so great. Sarcastic as hell.

Good, reading is great :P And bad girl with the fines! :)

Lol, what's with the face? This is fun stuff! Though I'm damn scared to even start the movie list since there are so many and even more that I'll probably never remember, ya know?

As always, I suggest reading:

Stephen King's Dark Tower Series: (I'm just doing the first book's synopsis) This heroic fantasy is set in a world of ominous landscape and macabre menace that is a dark mirror of our own. A spellbinding tale of good versus evil, it features one of Stephen King's most powerful creations - The Gunslinger, a haunting figure who embodies the qualities of a lone hero through the ages, from ancient myth to frontier western legend.
The Gunslinger's quest involves the pursuit of The Man in Black, a liaison with the sexually ravenous Alice, and a friendship with the kid from Earth called Jake. Both grippingly realistic and eerily dreamlike, here is stunning proof of Stephen King's storytelling sorcery.

Five stars worthy series. *nods*

Eragon by Christopher Paolini:

When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself. Overnight his simple life is shattered, and he is thrust into a perilous new world of destiny, magic, and power. With only an ancient sword and the advice of an old storyteller for guidance, Eragon and the fledgling dragon must navigate the dangerous terrain and dark enemies of an Empire ruled by a king whose evil knows no bounds. Can Eragon take up the mantle of the legendary Dragon Riders? The fate of the Empire may rest in his hands....

An amazing book, I'd say 5 stars as well.

Well, that's all I can think of right now.
