I haven't been on here in a while and with all my homework my book reading isn't really moving at a fast pace. I'm getting there though.

It was great. I am so bad at telling about books without giving away the whole story... It is about these four kids that get involved with the magician that makes magic candy, but it's really kind of sinister. Read it! You'll be glad I didn't tell you all about it!
PS I see your from NZ, so you are probably familiar with Garth Nix (I think he's from Australia). If you haven't read any of his books, you should try them. Good stuff! The "Keys to the Kingdom" series is way better than Fablehaven, IMHO... The first book is "Mister Monday".
I've read the first two and am looking forward to reading the rest (not really sure which of the two I like better). I just don't know when I'll get to them. I'm in the process of picking the books for the 4th-6th inventory for my daughter's school book fair. I need about 1000 titles, so I've been doing a lot of reading. If you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
If you like Brandon Mull, you should read "The Candy Shop War". I'm reading it now and it's REALLY good. My daughter thinks it's better than "Fablehaven". I'm not sure yet. We'll see how it ends, but it seems to be getting better and better. I'm also reading "Leven Thumps and the Gateway to Foo" which I'm also enjoying. If you like fantasy, I recommend it.
no, have not read catterheart, but i saw it on your shelf along with a few other books that i added to my "plan to read" books. it looks really interesting. yeah, i know what you mean about libraries sometimes, that used to be how it was when i lived farther north, but i actually live right across the street from a realy good library now and often ride by bike to collect a basketful of books for the week :)
hi, nice to mmet you! :) i jsut wanted to say I agree with what you said about books verses movies, I nad that same thought today when my mom asked if I wanted to watch a movie and I said I would rather read :) if you're lookin gfor a good book, i'd suggest something by Tamora Pierce, for example, "Alanna; The First Adventure" It's a fairly easy read but really entertaining. If your looking for something a little heavier, I'm reading a book called the Alienist, by Caleb Carr an dit is truely amazing, it's a mystery case about murders during America's turn of the century (late 1800s). Feel free to suggest book for me too, it sounds like we like the same types of books. :) Happy Reading!
