I'm glad you finished! Sorry that I provided a distraction, but it's good to hear that I've enlightened you to Nerdfighteria! DFTBA!
Less than a month until Inheritance...this is going to be very, very epic. I can't wait for the discussions that are sure to come after everyone's read it! It seems like the majority of the YA literary world has been waiting for this book forever.
And when it comes to Ed Elric versus Edward cullen, have you seen this icon? Pretty hilarious. http://www.sodahead.com/entertainment/edward-cullen-or-edward-scissorhands/question-910759/?page=2&link=ibaf&q=edward+elric&imgurl=http://quizilla.teennick.com/user_images/R/RO/ROS/ROSE1167/1245962414_6057_full.jpeg
You should definitely try out John Green's books. While you're at it, you should search "vlogbrothers" on youtube and watch some of their videos (the one talking about puff levels is John). I think you are definitely a nerdfighter and just don't know it yet (don't worry, it's a very good thing!).
I definitely liked Brisingr the best. Christopher Paolini's writing improved at ton between Eldest and Brisingr, I have a way better time reading Brisngr than either of the others (not that I don't love them).
Team Edward Elric for the win! So much better than the other one. :)
Hm...I've been too Stephenie Meyer, Lisa McMann, John Green/David Leviathan, Cassie Clare/Holly Black, and Leaky Con's Lit Day, which was basically a ton of authors all at once (most importantly John Green, David Levithan, Maureen Johnson, Stephanie Perkins, Scott Westerfeld, Robin Wasserman, and Libba Bray). I loooooove book signings, they're the greatest!
It's been that long since Eragon was released? Geez! I just remember that it was about 3 years ago that Brisngr was released. I decided to just reread that one in preparation for Inheritance; I can understand the books getting a little slow after reading them too many times. :)
Yeah, I would have been so mad if he died. When it seemed like he did, I spent the rest of the book repeating to myself "There's no way...I'm sure she didn't kill him....please...there's no way..." :)
And speaking of author signings and Forever, I just found out that Maggie Stiefvater is doing a stop on her book tour for Scorpio Races that's less than 2 hours from me! And it's on a weekend, so it looks like I can go! I'm so excited!
And I'm definitely going to read Fire. I'll probably read it after Clockwork Prince comes out, because I still need to finish Clockwork Angel and Catch 22, and then Inheritance comes out in a little over a month. So many amazing books, it's overwhelming!
Looks like we're into a lot of the same authors. :) I feel like there's a definite group of YA books by authors who are all friends that readers tend to like as a whole. I'm rereading Clockwork Angel in anticipation of Clockwork Prince....I'm so excited! Did you see the art contest Cassie put on for ARCs? My friends and I are the cosplay group. We didn't win, but we got honorable mention and had a blast doing it. I was photographer/director.
Also, how did you like Forever? I thought it was amazing!
I'm LOVING it! Nearly halfway through. I wish someone had told me about it sooner, I had no idea it'd be this good! I absolutely love Katsa, she's the definition of a kick-ass female protagonist. I love that I'm 200 pages in and it seems obvious who the love interest is but she's still completely resolute about not marrying and everything. Finally, a protagonist who isn't swooning after the first ten pages! So awesome.
No problem! I'm an instinctive ranter, so I completely know where you're coming from. :) Yeah, I feel like Uglies is one of those series that starts out sort of light and happy, and then just gets darker and darker until you don't know what to do with yourself! I absolutely love Zane, so I was so upset when he died, too....darn that David. :) And you've read Extras too, right? Frizz is definitely my favorite, and the article about real-life radical honesty that Scott-la talked about in Bogus to Bubbly is really interesting! Have you read it?
The Leviathan series is so much fun, I can't wait for Goliath! Do you read Scott-la's blog? Because he's been posting a piece of Keith-la's art from Goliath once a month, and it just makes the anticipation even more exciting! I'm glad I have a fellow Westefeld fan to rant with- don't hesitate to rant anytime!
