Wecome to the Movie Lovers Group. Hope to see you as an active participant in the group; it's always great to hear from new voices. Just FYI, if your interested....last month's group movie was "Miracle on 34th Street" and this month's group movie is "The Maltese Falcon". If you've seen any one of them (or both) please feel free to post your comments. March's Group Movie Discussion will be on Asian Films and we will discuss "Three Times". We also have a recurring thread "Movies You've Watched During the Month". Please feel free to post the movies you've seen on the small and big screen and your ratings.
Have a wonderful day.
Hey, Shaikha. I recommend the series, since you like YA lit. I think Meyers creates an original mythos in her Pacific Northwest setting. I mostly like the main character, Bella, and find her easy to identify with. But you might want to consider my shelf and the fact that I've been drawn to vampire lit since I first sank my teeth into Stoker's creation and weigh that in with other recommendations. I did put a hold on "The Cairo Trilogy"!
Shaikha, I enjoy the mystery genre, because you can explore other cultures and ideas in a painless way. I've been enjoying a lot of Scandinavian mystery writers lately and so I wondered about Arab writers. We have the Cairo Trilogy in the library. I've thought about checking it out and now I'll move it up higher on my list. Maybe someone will translate Sahar Al Mogi. She sounds intriguing. Are you a "Twilight" fan?
HI there Shaikha :)
Good luck with your new job. I have been changing jobs and now I'm settled with my current amazing job :D
As it has been said: "May the best you have even seen, be the worst you will ever see."
I've been well trying to read as well but not getting anywhere. I'm facing this reader's block again. So busy at work and I really can't believe it's the weekend! yiippiieeeeee!! I need the REST, you know? :D
Have a good one sweets
Hi there Shaikha :)
I LOVED the book. It totally touched me.
The way the author portrayed the longing and mourning was really great. She lets you in.
There's another book for her that has been recommended to me by so many "If you could see me now." I have it on my amazon wish list ;)
Have a good one sweets
