Guess what... BOOKS!

>> Friday, January 8, 2010

Yeahh I got to go to the library yesterday! How wonderful. And I made this lovely amazingly organized list. Of books to read. I love lists. I like certain aspects of my life to be organized (unlike my bedroom, haha!).

Today I finished one of the books that I got from the library; Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson.

What did I think? It was GOOD. Very good, actually. It won a bunch of awards, even was made into a platinum edition, and is even being used in some schools for english. And I think that it deserved it.

It was also made into a movie (same title) starring Kristen Stewart. I want to see it. Even though I don't really like Kristen Stewart, I think that she actually probably does a good job in this movie, since the part fits her. And I've read several reviews that said she did a good job. So maybe I'll see it someday...

I think I'll type up my book list, just for fun.

Here it is:

• before the title = on hold/hold request sent in
Bold = I have it right now.
All capital lettered title+bold = I've read it.




Megan's book list.

Eagle Strike by Anthony Horowitz
•Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
•Graceling by Kristen Cashore
SPEAK by Laurie Halse Anderson
•Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
•Esperanza Rising by Pam Munoz Ryan
Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
•The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson and the Oplympians #2) by Rick Riordan
The Wizard Heir by Cinda Williams Chima
Tunnels by Roderick Gordon/Brian Williams
The Last Thing I Remember by Andrew Klavan
Eragon by Christopher Paolini
(I got these next two; they weren't on my list, but they were by authors on my authors to check out list)
The Other Side of Darkness by Melody Carlson
Message in a Bottle by Nicholas Sparks


And there you have it! That's my list. It's always growing and changing, of course. Gosh, I love lists. I'm not sure why... but anyway, that's partly why I really like goodreads.com, because I'm using it to remember what books I want to read, and then I write them on my list! Heheh. I'm so silly.

So, yeah, if you've read any of those or want to read any of those, let me know what they're like or something! The nice thing about a few of those books is that they're 'classics' - meaning that my mom will let me read them for school. Haha!

Well I'd better go. I'm starving, but it's not quite dinner time yet... oh, whatever. I'm HUNGRY!

Bye!

So, what did it mean on your list when there was nothing--no dot bold, or anything?

Tell me more about this goodreads business. I looked at it a little...

Nothing meant that I haven't done anything with that book yet- rather, I don't have it and haven't put a hold on it or anything.

Um... Well goodreads is basically a place to 1. Learn about new books/books that your friends like and 2. Tell other people what you thought of certain books. You can find a book and say that either you've read it, are reading it, or want to read it. That's how I'm using it to help with my list- I see a book I want to read on there, so I mark it, and then I can look at all the books on there that I've marked I want to read. You can rate books that you've read (up to five stars) and write a review about them, so when people go to the page for that book, they can read te review you wrote. And also they have lists you can vote on (such as best book cover, best book of 2009, etc) and groups. Like, one group I'm in is a Hunger Games fan group, so they have lots of discussions and stuff going, and it's cool to see what other people think and give my input.


Hope that helps explain it! And sorry if there are any mistakes, I'm on my iPod and typing rather sloppily/fast.

Bye!
