May I say, that To Kill a Mockingbird is a great read?

The Name of this Book is Secret (and the rest of the series) by Pseudonymous Bosch.

They're very clever books. ^_^ I highly recommend them.

Finished Girl With the Dragon Tattoo in a week. (My worse timing to read a book...)

Well, it's a worthwhile read. Just a bit awkward at times, since there are a number of inappropriate scenes. Still liked it though, and there's a nifty ending at the end.

Now, time to conquer Girl that Played with Fire. (The sequel)

Princess of the Midnight Ball is actually better than I thought it would be. It's suspenseful with romance and comedy. The only thing is it has too many people at times, and it's hard to keep track of who is who. Otherwise it's a great book, even for guys. XD

Thank you Fowlie!

Well, when all the normal people find out how cool it is to be different, they'll want to be different too. So if everyone is different, then different people will be normal, and the normal people will be different.

Life as we knew it, by Susan Pfeffer is amazing. It's about the world ending. It's a really good book, until the end which isn't the best. Apart from that it's awesome.

Pandemonium-By Lauren Oliver.I loved it. Once again I am very upset.Lauren Oliver is fond of upsetting me. It's the sequel to Delirium.The second book in a trilogy.I'm not going to start talking about the story 'cause I'll just rant on and on.Her writing is extremely beautiful though.

So far 'The Jungle' by Upton Sinclair is good, if disturbing

Finished reading Stargirl :D
It seems to be an exceptionally heartfelt(?) book with good themes.
The author has great skill at character development.
I like Archie's description of Stargirl because it fits her so well(in my opinion).
Still a newbie; I think...

'Brave New World' (Adolus Huxley)is so inappropriate but so good...

inappropriate isn't the word I'd use, I'd say it's mature readers.

Has anyone read the short story, The Lottery? You should all check it out!
