My Sweet Audrina was one of the ones I didn't like personally.. Try the Heaven series :D


oooh Heaven rings a bell...

the one i'm talking about was of a family of 4 (mum dad daughter son) and i think the dad died/left.. then the son died so the daughter was brought up as the son?

i really do need to go look lol

My Sweet Audrina is a standalone.. not in any series though

Yeah it is, there were literally only a few stand alone books and the rest have been series'

Flowers in the attic is highly recommended along with the Heaven series :D

I've been resisting posting these as they all sound as pretentious as hell, but they genuinely are my favourite books!

Albert Camus - The Outsider, The Fall, Exile And The Kingdom
Dostoyevsky - Notes From Underground, The Idiot
Kafka - Metamorphosis, The Trial, America
Robert Tressell - The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists
Voltaire - Candide
Radclyffe Hall - The Well Of Loneliness
John Bunyan - Pilgrim's Progress
Hunter S. Thompson - Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas
Thomas Hardy - Return Of The Native, The Woodlanders
Milan Kundera - Immortality, The Unbearable Lightness Of Being

... I'd carry on, but this is already looking massively self-indulgent! :D

Carry on :) There's nothing wrong with being a reader, far from it.

reading makes our speaky english and writing english goode coz it helps to learn u how ta do all that spelling and punctyation and all that stuff that them smart peoples do

I apologise, couldn't resist :D
Seriously those books look a little too clever for me and I would bypass them entirely in a library, but on re-reading a few of the book titles, they sound like something I would enjoy. :D Thanks for your input :G11:

Maybe thats why my swedish is so good, coz i read to much(?) O.o
Once i have started a book, i have problems putting it down, even to eat O.o
Thinking:   aaah, i have to eat, but i will just read a little more...  

Why is it so easy to just sit and read and just forget everything else?

And yes MercifulRelease, carry on :D

Ah books.. Tiny little things full of adventure, romance, comedy, horror and everything else you can possibly think of.

I adore books, specifically the supernatural genre but i have been known to branch out a little sometimes.

My favourites include:

Child of Time - Isaac Asimov
Harry Potter series - J.K. Rowling
Nightworld series - L.J. Smith
The Forbidden Game series - L.J. Smith
Wicca series - Cate Tiernan
Twilight saga - Stephenie Meyer
Most things written by Virginia Andrews, Stephen King and Anne Rice

What's your favourite book(s)? :D


Have you read The hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, my daughter assures me its a fantastic read, with a film due out later this year. Stephen King quotes on it "constant suspense..... I couldnt stop reading.

Shopaholic Series & Undomestic Goddess - Sophie Kinsella.


Not long ago I started exploring this this Shopaholic series, and I liked the 1st book I have read Shopaholic and Baby. Another book of this author-Kinsella that I've got is the secret dreamworld of shopaholic which soon will read as finish with my current book.


Other authors (love-story writers) that I like is B. Cartland - plain stories but with well performed plot.

From classical English literature I like a lot works by Ch. Dickens (since school). My favourite is the novel Great Expectations. Among 20th century authors remarkable are works by Golding - The Double Tongue.

In my plans to read Twilight saga in English as in Russian could be lost in translation, on the other hand I read slowlier in English, still they say it's worth reading the book in English

After reading dragons oath, i'm considering going back and re-reading the House of Night series as Istopped part of the way throught mainly because of time and the fact the next one was due out shortly and I didnt want to wait to read it so long after reading the set.

Child Of Time by Isaac Asimov is one that stands out as a nostalgia trip for me. Very cool story about bringing a neanderthal boy back to present day using a time machine.. Sounds corny as heck but its all very scientific.

I think Potter and Blyton's stuff came out somewhat before the 70s...

Anyway, my books:
Anything by Roald Dahl (especially George's Marvellous Medicine, not least because of Rik Mayall reading it on Jackanory.
Most of the Discworld series (some of them are a bit lame, it has to be said)
The Hobbit
The Hitchhiker's trilogy (obv)
Kim Newman's (writing as Jack Yeovil) Warhammer novels.
Ninteen Eighty Four
The Day of the Triffids
Vila: I'm entitled to my opinion.
Avon: It is your assumption that we are entitled to it as well that is irritating.
