Happy Friday everyone!
I am totally getting my book reading vibe back. I’ve been reading some Nora Roberts and John Green, as well as finishing the Davinci Code. Here’s a list of the next few books I’m planning to read. Let me know if you’ve read them and what your opinions have been about it 🙂
1. Looking for Alaska: John Green
Since this book is busy getting organised into a movie, I really want to read the book beforehand to be able to properly compare. I really enjoy John Green’s writing as well – he is such a brilliant author!
2. The Woman Who Stole my Life: Marian Keyes
I’m always really excited when one of my favorite authors brings out a new book. YAY!
3. The Ruby Circle: Richelle Mead
I just really want to finish the series and see what happens to Sydney and Adrian!
4. Angels and Demons: Dan Brown
I really didn’t like The DaVinci code. However, I’ve heard that Angels in Demons is actually much better, so I am willing to give it a try.
5. Atonement: Ian McEwan
The movie is just the saddest watching experience ever, and I just really want to see how everything unfolds in the book, even if I know the end.
What books are you planning to read?
Atonement is awesome, The Woman who stole my life though, while good, is not as memorable as Keyes’ brilliant earlier books. I was a tad disappointed it it 😦
I started reading Atonement last night… It is really well written. As for Keyes, I really love her as an author but the last book I read written by her (The Brightest Star in the Sky) was not a favorite of mine. Do you have a favorite written by her?
I love those early Sullivan sisters books – Watermelon, Lucy Sullivan is getting married, Rachel’s Holiday, they were fun and fabulous.
Great work bestie! Angels and Demons is WAY better, though also steeped in conspiracy. It just has a better story to it and kept me more entertained. I hope you enjoy your reads. I loved Looking For Alaska, but it is a very heavy read!
Thanks best one! I hope it is much better than DaVinci. I can’t wait to read more John Green #aftersillyexamswearefreeelves
If I EVER finish Mansfield Park, my next books include catching up with John Green like Paper Towns and The Fault in Our Stars 😉 And Insurgent is sitting there waiting for me also. Catch up on a ton of YA novels..haha!
As for your upcoming books, I liked Angels and Demons more than Da Vinci Code so hopefully you’ll enjoy it more 🙂
Kim! You must read FIOS… It is so painfully beautiful! I love a good YA novel.. let me know which ones are awesome 😀
I really hope I enjoy it more!
Hmm. I preferred The DaVinci Code to Angels & Demons! But wasn’t crazy about either. I really want to read Looking For Alaska. 🙂
O dear.. I really hated the DaVinci code!
Uh oh. You may not like Angels & Demons, then! I don’t know… 🙂
I really liked Angels and Demons…. but that was many years ago. Its still got the conspiracy stuff but its more fun to follow than the Da Vinci Code.
I am currently reading Inherent Vice. Man if people thought the movie was confusing…. the book is all over the place! I love it though, reminds me of Hunter S Thompson.
Gonna read American Gods by Neil Gaiman next.
I hope I enjoy it more 🙂 I really disliked the DaVinci code.
I think I will look into that soon then. I heard American Gods is a really excellent read!
