The only movie which MIGHT surpass the book i read (or is on the same level) is Howl's Moving Castle
Also finished The Heart of the Matter by Greene who rightfully says he hated this book, i agree, but maybe i didnt understand it, its for school so ill have to reread it will comment later on it.For now all i can say is the characters are annoying, the main is a goody two shoes with too much pride and the plot is too sad.
Ah, you mean Howl's was not a Studio Ghibli original (story)? I didn't know that... I'm curious about the book, if that's the case.
speaking of rereading, I'm currently rereading Neil Gaiman's Stardust. It's one of my favorite works by Gaiman, and I also loved the movie, surprisingly.
And I have my sights on the classic The Prince by Machiavelli.
and the new book Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother which I could totally relate to, when I read parts of it in a bookstore. My mother raised us in such a similar manner

Its okay, I just wanted someone to recommend me a few of queen's book but I guess I'll ask somewhere else.
I'm still reading Agatha Christine's books tho, I'm not really a fast reader so I'm now only reading "The Sittaford Mystery".
What's your fav books by christine?
The one i read and was brilliant, but i cant remember its name bet it remains one of my fav. crime books, maybe someone can hlp me find it again i really loved it and i wanna reread it, it was a story on a detective who met a woman who told him about his hometown and then got killed. The detective reads her death on the newspaper and decides to go investigate. there he meets loads of people and some incidents lead to the death of many people, it turns out to be the nice old lady who was killiing people and he gets a lover too in the end who was his prime suspects (who dies) wife i think but didnt love him and married for some need??
I've read a few books by Christie. Back when I was in sixth grade or something. I quit the mystery genre in high school, for some reason.
I've recently started readin Patrick Rothfuss' The Kingkiller Chronicles. Finished The Name of the Wine and avout halfway through of Wise Man's Fear. It is good this far. Funny things is, while it is obviously different, it still reminds me a lot of Harry Potter. More mature though.
I finished the first one and was eagerly awaiting the seconds ones release. But when it did come out, a surge of indifference took me. I still havent read it. Is it good?
I think it is good. I liked the early book more though. Now I'm on the "Counsellor of kings"-part mentioned in first book, and not really into it. Or atleast I asume this is the king. Feels bit cliche at few points. But still, I like it.
Currently reading a novel titled "Blue Bloods" by Melissa de la Cruz. I think it has a unique way of telling from most novels I read, a different way of how the author presents the plot. It feels somehow strange and confusing at some points, yet interesting since I get to try something new and different.
I'm currently reading "Frankenstein" and have to read "The Giver" and "Digital Fortress" for AP English over the summer. Can anyone tell me is "The Giver" and good. I hear "Digital Fortress" is good because Dan Brown is awesome!
"Digital Fortress" is to die for good believe me you wont regret reading that, but imo Dan Browns bestest are "Dav Vinci Code" by far and "angels and Demons" while "the Lost symbol" is insteresting but not quite as fun as the others, I'm only halfway through and ended up dropping it but will continue it soon when i get the courage to try it again. His novels are always amazing but very tiring :/
also, what do you think of it so far?, do you like it or not?, is it hard or boring to read? etc etc etc?
I don't know anything about the other two books though. Except that The Giver has an award and thus is likely to be a great book, as that's why it was given the award, hehe. It's a pretty famous book.
