Suggestions on what I should read? Yes, that's a mess, but I am NOT typing all that out!

Lastly, I finally got around to watching Inkheart. I did quite like the book, so I was looking forward to a movie portrayal. What did I think of it? Well, I thought it was overall a pretty good movie. My biggest problem was the girl that played Meggie. She drove me crazy! She is the exact example of why I didn't read young adult novels for years. I think she overacted or something. All I know is that I couldn't stand her! Her voice drove me crazy! I honestly do not think she was a great choice for the role. Otherwise, I thought it was a fun movie! I am contemplating a reread before I move on to finish the trilogy.

  1. Sheesh...no wonder you're having a tough time deciding what to read...I'd have a tough time choosing from amongst all those awesome sounding books, too! But my recommendation--go with Amazing Maurice!

    I think you should read Here, There be Dragons as I would love to hear your thoughts on it. Also Changeling, Tender Morsels, Journey to the River Sea and definitely My Swordhand is Singing.

  4. LOL!! I am rolling around on the floor here laughing at your library check out list, lol. I'm sorry...I can be just as bad sometimes ;) I'm getting ready to start I Never Saw Another Butterfly!! I went and got it as soon as Debi reviewed it!

  5. Oh and you should definitely read The Disreputable History of Frankie....and four and twenty blackbirds.

  6. Debi: I plan to reading Amazing Maurice. I can hypothetically renew that one, though, so it will probably be renewed!

    Rhinoa: Consider the point yours! And, I will make all those a priority. I don't think any of them are renewable!

    Becky: I was wondering if got them from you... I know I got them from someone recently!

    Chris: Um... that's not the whole list. In total I have 47 books out from the library... I went and got I Never Saw Another Butterfly as soon as Debi reviewed it, too! Adding those two books to the list!

  7. I'm going to show this list to my husband! He thinks I'm nuts for all the books i bring home (half at least that I don't get to read). He won't think I'm so unusual now....thank you for making me feel normal!!! lol

    I have Changeling on my TBR shelf,and Tender Morsels out from the library too. Great books! hard choices! and that's half the fun....

  8. And Four and Twenty Blackbirds - I read it based on Chris's review, and it is good and gothic and creepy :-D

  9. I can't stand it when books are made into films. The Tale of Despereaux, Inkheart, I couldn't bare seeing the movie for fear of smudging the mental images I've created through the author's magic.

    The girl character I'd like to most slap is the girl in Little Miss Sunshine. ;)

  10. I didn't like the movie Inkheart not so much because of the acting but because the movie was almost 90% different from the book.

  11. I will refrain from recommending any because I'd name too many to actually be helpful :P

  12. Yay! I got a point!!! You should read Changeling next. It's such a great story and it's not very long either. :) I recently re-read Inkheart and plan to read the others for the first time before I see the movie.

  13. Susan: lol I always have too many books. It's been years since I had a manageable TBR pile! Looking forward to Cherie Priest!

    Bellezza: I know what you mean. My biggest thing was when they made the 'Archie' comics a television show at some point and time. I accidentally saw an episode and it was rather sad because I have had voices for those characters for years... It ruined it! And, yes, I hear you on the Little Miss Sunshine thing!

    Alice: It's been so long since I read the book that I couldn't really remember. I think I will probably reread before carrying on with the trilogy so that the book is fresh in my head, not the movie.

    Nymeth: lol. Thanks!

    Tink: I know. Changeling looks so good! I have so many books! Gah! lol
