I'm reading How I Live Now, which is a wartime love story. It's kind of weirdly written, but it's good.
Just finished Double Cross, which I think was the worst in the Noughts and Crosses series :(
There's going to be a movie??? Yay!!

edit: I just found it on IMDB, it was released in October.

Well, yesterday I went to my cousins' and they sent me back with a nice stack of books. I read The Five People you Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom yesterday, and it was terrific. I cried...a lot. I was sobbing during the last chapter or so. I loved it

I'm also going to be starting Kyrian's book in the Dark Hunter series tonight.
hose books sound interesting!
Do you mind me asking what they are about?
Wolf-Girl90, i'm sorry it took me so long to get back to you. This little blurb is taken from the author's website. Any explanation I wrote was giving away too much.

The Warrior Heir: One March day, Jack Swift, a high school student in a small college town, forgets to take the medicine he’s taken daily since he was an infant. There ensues a cascade of events that puts him in mortal danger.

The Wizard Heir: Sixteen year old wizard Seph McCauley has spent the past 3 years bouncing from one exclusive private school to another. Orphaned as a baby, Seph was raised by Genevieve LeClerc, the sorcerer owner of a Toronto bed and breakfast. LeClerc tried to protect Seph from the treacherous world of wizardry by keeping him away from others of his kind.

But now LeClerc is dead, leaving Seph on his own and without the training he needs to control his growing power. He prowls the illegal clubs of Toronto’s warehouse district, plagued by magical accidents that are increasing in frequency and severity. Worse, he’s beginning to realize that the stories he’s been told about his parents’ life and death are fabrications—that the people he most trusted have been lying to him.

They are really great books and I devoured them both so quickly. They stressed me out at times, but I like that...it's a sign of a good book. :)

Hope that was helpful.

Has anyone else read Sovay, by Celia Rees? It's a historical book, about a young woman who becomes a highwayman. I really recommend it! The only bad thing is that there are so many guys who like her, but she chooses the worst one... :(

I've finally started The Host. I've had the book sitting in my room for the past month and never got around to it, mainly because I started The Black Dagger Brotherhood right before I got it and the brothers kept me busy for a while.

I really liked The Host. I am still plugging away at the Dark-Hunter series. However, a friend of mine just read The Wizard's Daughter by Catherine Coulter. I didn't know she wrote more than just her FBI series. Which is funny since most of her books are romance and I only know her drama series! :lol: The story sounds really good! Has anyone read it?
