Grad School + TBR list = Lots of Summer Reading!
I read the first book and saw the movie. Didn't enjoy the movie as much as I thought...it's hard for filmmakers to get books right.
I loved these books! Adorable! I've read the first 3 books, but will start at the beginning again. Also, my blog name was partially inspired by this series....I'll explain the details in a future post. ;)
The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini
I've started Eragon twice before, but never got through it. I don't know why. I really enjoyed the story, but put the book down at some point and once I picked it up again I had to start over from the beginning. Let's hope third time's the charm.
Gemma Doyle by Libba Bray
Another one I started and didn't finish. (highly recommended by a friend)
A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket
I own 7 or 8 books and will rely on the library to fill in the rest.
Children of the Red King (a.k.a. the Charlie Bone books) by Jenny Nimmo
I have books 1 & 2, so I'd love to start this series.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
The third book Mockingjay will be released in August! This is THE BEST and most addictive series I've ever read (well, this and Harry Potter of course). Can't wait to see what happens next.
Wow, that's a lot of books (and I could add more titles to it)! I'll try review around two-three books of a series at a time. Also, I will throw in a few 1001 books and others I'm overdue to read.
