Ghosts of the Nile By Cheryl Harkness

Wow… okay… um…

This book is pretty short, and I’m not sure if it was supposed to be a fictional comic/story with real-world info, or just an info-dump? Props to the Author for trying, at least.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets By J. K. Rowling

Woo, finally got to the second book in the series!

Way more different from the movie then I would have guessed. 😮 Still plenty of action and excitement though! Even having watched the movie before, I was so suspicious of Percy Weasly the entire time. XD Never saw THAT coming though! Poor Ginny though, having to deal with all that

Guys Read 4: Other Worlds Edited By Jon Scieszka

ANTHOLOGY TIME!

  • Percy Jackson and the Singer of Apollo By Rick Riordan

Bwehehehe! Poor Grover though, No breaks for him, even if he is Lord of the Wild and all.

  • Bouncing The Grinning Goat By Shannon Hale

Woo! I love a good ‘discovering Magic’ story! X3 This seems like an awesome intro to a longer series, I’ll have to do some poking around for this one!

  • The Scout By D. J. MacHale

Sigh, Secrets, they never end well. Poor Kit.

  • Rise of the RoboShoes By Tom Angleberger

Meh, just some randomness.

  • The Dirt on Our Shoes By Neal Shusterman

Interesting way to start a colony on a planet far, far away. I could see it happening too, maybe not how it happened in the story, but… yea… sent a bunch of microbes out into space and such. Plants too.

  • Plan B By Rebecca Stead

Bwehehehehehe! Alien Cats!

  • A Day in the Life By Shaun Tan

This made no sense at all, but yay for pictures!

Poor Ghost boy, but at least he’s free now.

  • The Warlords of Recess By Eric Nylund

Rules are Rules! X3

  • Frost and Fire By Ray Bradbury

Wow o.o I can’t imagine living in a world where life happens only in the span of 8 or 11 days.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone By J. K. Rowling

Dude. DUDE. O_O

I never read the Harry Potter series before, I was into other things when this first book came out, and I never really picked up the books later on either while the series was still being completed. My first look into the Harry Potter World was the movies, but, BUT! Seeing’s how similar the two are, and how Different! I’m glad I finally started reading the series. There’s so much in the book that was Better, in my opinion, then the movies, and there’s parts of the Movies I still love that translated nicely from the book.

Definitely continuing on with the series, and maybe re-watching the movies again. X3

The Wishing Tree By William Faulkner

Hard to follow. Seems like it has a pretty neat idea behind it but  it was choppy and wasn’t easy to get into the story at all.
