I would say the "Modern Fairy Tale" books by Holly Black are more closely aligned with Melissa Marr's darker faerie books. They are really good reads but they aren't all happy, happy they have more of an edge. I really liked them. Do you have anything that you think I should read? I recommend both Holly Black's and Melissa Marr's work if you haven't read them.
Ohh, that's sounds really interesting! I'll definitely have to read that. No, I've read Percy Jackson. I actually haven't had time to read much at all lately due to schoolwork and SATs looming so close =/ But once I've taken the SATs I plan to take a nice break and read as much as I can over spring break before going back to studying for the AP and SAT subject test exams =]
I have a list of books to read, feel free to drop a note about some books that you liked that maybe I'd like to read. I'm more into action and fantasy books. Action such as spy stuff like Alex Rider series and fantasy like Harry Potter and Skulduggery Pleasant series =]
Haha, don't worry. In 7th grade, my homeroom teacher told my parents that I read too much and I was like, so?? it's homeroom!! But yea, i spend way too much time reading everyday =P I agree about the movies. They don't follow the book but I want to see them because of the book =] I haven't really reread any of the books but I think I'll do that over summer.
I did like Blue Bloods but I didn't get hooked on it. It's a series that I really enjoy reading but wouldn't go gaga over, you know? =]
Never heard of Mortal Instruments. What's that about?
I felt the same way after Harry Potter.... I was like... what now?? now I'm waiting for the 7th movie(s) to come out =] I noticed you're going to read Blue Bloods. That was a great series! I read book 1 and 2. I'm waiting for my friend to finish book 3 =]
thanks Sharolyn! Glad I could help out. I have heard of the Percy Jackson series, and it wasn't my type at first. But now all my friends are hooked on it because of the upcoming movie, so I decided to pick up a copy! I haven't started reading it yet, but I am sure it will not disappoint. Stay in touch and I look forward to sharing books/opinions with you in the future! Thanks for the friend request.
