Isn't Stephenie Meyer also the writer from Twillight?????
Looooved the movie!

Yes. Have you read the books? So much better than the movie! (I'm still a fan of the movie though).
The host took me a while to get into but I think I ended up liking it better than Twilight.

Just finished Night Watch. Onto Day watch now Very Happy

No, haven't read them yet.
Since the film all of her books are on my wanted list though.
Books are often better!
So you know how it goes on with our "lovebirds" then?
Someone at bol.com gave away a lot of the story.
The magic of the story is in the mystery of this overwhelming love and the torture of not being able to be with the one you love.

Well if you also loved Twilight, you should see: "let the right one in". It is a swedish film I think. They are going to make a new version in america.
With a little girl as a vampire. More pure and a lot of long shot's in it. The atmosphere just get's under your skin.

Mika Waltari - Mikael Karvajalka
(This is the Romanian title, I'm not sure if it was translated differently in other languages. I think it's The Wanderer in English, but I'm not sure)

Just read Horseboy from Rupert Isaacson.
The story sticks around in my head, about a man and his journey to find his son, who is lost in PDDnos.
hmm probably not very good english this one but I hope you know what I mean. A lot of spirituality, horses, relationship, hope, following your heart stuff in a down to earth written book.

Last night I couldn't stop reading new moon. Stephenie Meyer. Finished it.

Read the twillight saga (all 4) last week, I'm so hooked, thinking about reading them again and again.
Luckily I discovered the unpublished "midnight sun, the partial draft" on the website of Stephenie Meyer.
So I am reading that one.
And some book about Near death expieriences. Crazy thing is these story's hit me in the center of my being.

I haven't read them, but I've heard all sorts of opinions, most of them quite oposite. I don't know. It's not Tolkien, but it might be worth a try if you like fantasy a lot

(I do, but still woudn't buy them. Maybe borrow them Laughing)

I started reading Philippa Gregory's The Boleyn Inheritance last night. I quite enjoy her books, even though there's something a little morbid about them.

Finished the draft of midnight sun (stephenie meyer).
It is not as relaxing reading a book on your computerscreen as having a book in your hands.
Loved it anyway.
Now I will try to live a human life away from the vampires...... Laughing

Don't know about the Eragon books. A friend of mine is quite fond of them though. Well vampires or dragons, maybe it's a nice change!

Read during the weekend And Then There Were None, funny how it's name changed a few times, and the bg title is still the very first Smile
It's very interesting, but when you thinking about it at the end, it doesn't hold together.

After all my studies I can finally read books for pleasure now. Although I did read S.Dali's diary this summer. It's called "Diary of a Genius", and it's priceless Very Happy

Now I read novels by Jodi Picoult, I finished Keeping Faith and started Picture Perfect... I have two more, got it from Arturas' sis, who buys them in London and gives them to me after she read them. I read them for the sake of reading in English, I can't say it's something I would choose to read myself, at least not all four novels... I get the feeling as I read them that the author kinda makes these books after one pattern, if you get what I mean
