Off the subject...


I am sitting here in the early morning hours thinking about how monotonous our days could get these next few weeks...

Argh! For a change of pace, use this space to tell me one of your favorite books (yes, you have to have read it to count it) and why it is so great.

Mine- Suzanne's Diary for Nicolas by James Patterson
It was an easy beach read and had romance as well as tears. I loved the format too.

My favorite book would have to be Eragon/Eldest. The way the author writes really gets me into the story. Speaking of getting into the story, I really like the Neverending Story as well. When I read any of these books, I loose touch with my outside life and become a hermit crab. I can barely put the book down while reading it. That day in class that I was reading Eldest, I was in the climax, and throughout the day teachers had made me put the book down, but finally, in your class, I got a break and finished the book. Thank you, Mrs. Caldwell. You are the only teacher in this high school that understands what it means to be trapped in a book. I think I would have bitten the head off of the next person that interrupted my reading.

My favorite book is To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I loved the innocence of the book. It reminded me of my childhood years and growing up in a small neighborhood where everyone knows everyone.

My favorte book is definently a toss up between The Teeth of the Tiger, Rainbow Six, and The Bear and The Dragon. All of which are by Tom Clancy. The action and political aspects of these books aree amazing. I read them once a year.

One of the best books I have read is Life of Pi by Yann Martel. It is so incredibly interesting; i couldn't put it down. It's one of those books that if you can get through the first 20 pages, it is an incredible read. I would recommend it to anyone.

My favorite book was The Runaway Jury. John Grisham provides many exciting twists and is very detailed in describing the trial. I just remembered that The Count Of Monte Cristo is a really good book too.

I'd have to say that my favorite book is Pay it Foward. It's an uplifting book and is centered around a pretty amazing concept. If you help one person, and that person helps one person, and then they help one person, it will keep going until you have indirectly helped hundreds of people just by directly helping one! You should all read it...or just watch the movie!

My favorite book would have to be in between Memoirs of a Geisha , Ahab's Wife, and Harry Potter. It may sound odd to have these in the same category with Harry Potter but they are my favorites...i read ALOT though...i have alot of favorites its hard to choose. Some of my other favorites are Can you keep a Secret?, Pride and Prejudice, Beach Music, Girl with a Pearl Earring...I could go on forever. Mostly I have to admit I enjoy romances and adventures...I am not a huge mystery reader like I was when I was younger. Also, occasionally I will get into a good philosophical book such as Life of Pi.

I love the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Call me weird, but they fascinate me. I read The Notebook at the beach and that was a good read, very sad though. I'm sure the majority of the girls have read it, but in case you haven't, I highly recommend it.

Well, besides Harry Potter, i would have to say my favorite book is Boy's Life. I read it when i was in 8th grade and i loved it. It has a great mixture of everything a good book should have. It is funny, scary, intense, dramatic, and shocking. Boy's life has over 600 pages, but it only took me 3 days to read it. Every chapter seemed to give you a cliffhanger which made you want to read even more.

Actually my one of my favorite books is The Power of One. I hated it for a while, just because I didn't have a choice about reading it, but once I got into it I really enjoyed it. Other than that, I really like Harry Potter.

maxg3 said...

off the top of my head, i like Harry Potter. theres no explanation needed. they're just plain cool. i remember reading Holes a loooooong time ago. at the time it was the only book i had ever read that i kept wanting to read. by the way, i dont think its fair that you can show pictures and we cant. stupid HTML code blocks

The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks is definitley my favorite book, Bee! And if you haven't read it(or seen the movie..which you should) then you're crazy! My favorite thing about it was obviously the mushy love story! I wanna fall in love..gah!

If I had to choose a favorite book I think it would have to be Pride and Prejudice! I was dragged to the movie with a friend before I was ever interested in Jane Austin. After seeing the movie I fell in love with it! So after seeing the movie I fell in love and had to read the book. I love how she writes and her word choice. She makes ordinary words into beautiful language.

My favorite book is probably the favorite book of half the girls in our grade, but that doesnt matter. Redeaming Love is my favorite book of recent. I love the way it is a love story that is based from the Bible. It is written so it is very easy to relate to the characters and is easy to grow to love them. It may suprise some, but I have talked to guys who have read it. Although they would not read it over and over, they were glad they read it and think guys should read it. So there, guys should try it too :)

My favorite book is Timeline by Michael Chriton because it was full of suspense and it kept me wanting to know what happen next so i could not put it down. - BakerB3

Right now I'm reading Wouldn't It Be Nice: Brian Wilson and the Making of Pet Sounds. I like it a lot. It tells about the history of the Beach Boys and the making of Pet Sounds. I love that album so much it's ridiculous so it's exciting to read about it. It's also fun to hear what the author has to say about each track b/c it amplifies what I've already noticed but also makes me appreciate it more.

My favorite book is Summer Sisters by Judy Blume because it deals with two friends who are total opposites who go to the beach and have the best time ever and they go every summer until her friend's dad gets married. It is such a good book I reccomend it to all girls.

I have lots of favorite books. One of my favorites is Lonesome Dove. It is very well written and seems to be very realistic. The plot and characters were extremely enjoyable to read about and its the only Western I've ever really liked.

Like a lot of other girls, my favorite book is Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. It is so good. i'm absolutely in love with the main guy in the book. I've actually read it twice, and I cried both times.

DorieF5 said...

Okay my favorite book is definately Secret Life of Bees. It is different from any book that I have ever read and I loved it. It's definately a girl book and it is perfect for me, and I just fell in love with it right from the start. You would think from the title that it would suck, but it definately did not, I would recommend it to any one! but yah I love to read haha... good bye see you tomorrow!

JoanneL1 said...

my favorite book is can you keep a secret? by sophie kinsela..yes i know lame title but it's a great book. By the way if you of ya'll cared... I'M GOING TO THE KENNY CHESNEY CONCERT TOMORROW NIGHT!!! sorry i can't stop thinking about it and i can't study for my two tests that i have tomorrow because of it. It's going to be AMAZING!

My favorite book, like many, is To Kill a Mickingbird. I think Harper Lee did an unbelievable job with keeping up the suspense. Her ability to keep the reader fully engaged at all times was awesome. I believe To Kill a Mockingbird is definitely a must read.

My favorite book is Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. It was 400 pages and I read it in two days. I think the reason that I liked it so much was because I felt like I was watching TV and not exactly reading the plot moved so smoothly. The author constantly kept you guessing so you would never put the book down, because you wanted to see what hapenned next.

My favorite book is "The DaVinci Code" by Dan Brown. Yes, I am aware that this book is completely based on Christian beliefs, and seeing that I am Jewish it would seem akward for me to be drawn to this book. However, I believe that it is interesting to find out information about other cultures and this book is so adventurous and exciting in how it describes history and religion, that I couldn't put it down.

So it's definitely 10:30 p.m. on a Friday night during my second semester of senior year in high school...but yet i still find myself blogging. That's sooo wrong. I do love blogging...but I really need these points, also!! Ok, I'm gonna be sappy and say the Notebook by Nicholas Sparks. It was such a fantastic read because sometimes a good cry is just what ya need! And for those of you that can't get enough of The Notebook or Sparks, there's a sequel to it called The Wedding. Beeaauutiful story!! Well much love!!

My favorite book is by Lance Armstrong, It's Not About the Bike. His entire story really amazes me. It is something I believe everyone can relate to, "struggle" and "adversity."

AbbyW5 said...

My favorite book is Captivating. It's a Christian book that discusses the depth of a girl's heart. But I also like Harry Potter too because I think it would be cool to go to a school like Hogwarts!

My favorite book is Angles and Demons by Dan Brown. It is full of action, and it incorporates a murder mystery with cool technology and the Illuminati, a group against the church. It is probably the fastest-pace book that I have ever read.

My favorite book is In the Shadow of Man, by Jane Goodall. I liked animals to begin with and also I liked the story that she tells.
