Re: The Great Books!
Books I've read:
Stuff written by James Patterson. I love any good mystery/crime/suspense book. ^_^ My favourite one would be, 2nd Chance
. I've also read Four Blind Mice
. It was okay, but not my type. >_> *cough*
My other favourite author would be...John Grisham. I love the books he wrote. Crime and suspence.
The one I loved reading all over again was The Client
. It's about this twelve year old kid who witnessed a murder, and has all the details as to where the body is hidden. He grabs media and police attention, including the FBI. But he can't say a thing since the killer threatened to kill his mom and younger brother.
Philip Pullman's Dark Materials
were a great read as well. I particularly liked the last one, since all was revealed in there. ^_^
I've also read Peter Pan
, 80 days around the world
and The Wizard of Oz
. Written by J. M. Barrie, Jules Verne and L. Frank Baum, respectively.
At school, we got to do a lot of reading too, in Englsih class. I particularly enjoyed Sherlock Holmes
series written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. ^_^ Yeah, I'm a big crime and suspense fan. Other books read at school...well. Stuff written by William Shakespere.
My favourite Shakespere story was A Midsummer's Night Dream
. It was more on the fantasy side. ^_^
Speaking of fantasy, I loved Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
. I'm planning of buying the whole Chronicles of Narina series. I've already read Prince Caspian
*borrowed from a friend* and I can't wait to read the rest.
Like millions of others, i love the Harry Potter series
. The best for me was the fifth book. Didn't really likethe latest one much. It dissapointed me greatly. >_<
When I was younger, I also used to read Goosebumps
, but I was always tired at all the endings always turning out the same. So I tried reading another series, called Spooksville
. It got me hooked.
It's interesting since we have the same characters *unlike the Goosebumps series* and they all have different adventures everyday. I jsut loved it. The sad thing, is that there are only 24 books which was written until it stopped being published.
I highly reccomend it for any kiddish mystery/fantasy fan. ^_^ NJT, since you've read Goosebumps, you should try Spooksville too!
It's very old, and hard to find here though.
In fact, I've been searching for a whole year now, to collect all the books. So far, I have only 5 more to go until it's complete. But most of them were from second hand book stores. T_T So hard to find.
Hmm...what else. Oh. LOL. I also read Horrible Histories
. Hilarious, honestly. I already enjoy history, and I don't really need it to be horrible for me to enjoy, but I read one anyway. ^_^ It's quite interesting, since the facts are all real, but remains to interest young readers with their quip and sarcastic jokes. ^_^
I've also read Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code
and wuite enjoyed it as well. Even if some facts weren't real at all, and even a religious Catholic myself, I remain open to books like these. ^_^ I can't wait for the movie adaption.
Roald Dahl's children's series always interest me. I loved Matilda
and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
I'm also planning on reading the Mary Poppins series
since I enjoyed the Disney flick. Although, I've heard it's really different. So, I'm really not sure. I liked the understanding Mary in the movie, and I read that the pook portrayed her as a vain character. I don't want my perception of Mary to be ruined by the book..but..oh, I don't know.
Currently, I'm not reading anything now, but there's one particular book that I've been re reading almost every week. It's by Jonathan Kellerman, which features his character Alex Delawawre. I've only read one book of this serires, but I really like it. It's called Self-defense
Oh, and I've read a few books by Agatha Chritie. Quite hard to understand with some of the suage of language she uses, but I liked them. ^_^
Erm....I'm sure I've read many more books in my 16 years in Earth..but I can't remember them.
Ah!! Last one. I also read some X Files
series. I love the T.V show. ^_^ <333333333333333333333
