This Week's Topic is:
Top Ten Series
We'd like to start but haven't yet
Pittacus LoreKatie: I guess I haven't gotten into this series because I watched the movie, long before I ever knew it was a book. I always try to read books first, I don't like to read book after I have seen the movie first... same thing kinda happened with Harry Potter, never read it because I had already watched it. Anyways, I really really LOVED the movie, so I have been meaning to pick up this series to see what happens after the movie stopped.
Melissa De la CruzKrisha: I've seen some great reviews around the blogosphere about this series. I know, I know. It's yet another vampire story line. It doesn't focus around any mortals, so maybe it's a step up?
Dan WellsKatie: Believe it or not i have Partials and Fragments on my book shelf. Both won from two different giveaways. I really want to read these soon, they look soo good, and they stare me down at night... they chant " read me, read me"
Krisha: I feel like the LAST PERSON ON EARTH to have read this book. Katie received it a while back and even carved a cool pumpkin at Halloween inspired by the book. I need to read it STAT!
Katie: Like I said I am a sucker for books that are becoming movies, I picked up Beautiful Creatures just for the sole purpose of watching the movie and seeing how they book and film were related. When I hear a book is getting made into a movie I am all over it.... So now that I saw the preview for City of Bones and it makes me really want to get into this series.
Margaret Stohl & Kami GarciaKrisha: Same as The Luna Chronicles. Still feeling like the last person on earth. And I don't want to see the movie until I read the book.
Gregory Mcguire, Douglas SmithKatie: To start with, I love musicals! I would die to be able to go to Broadway and watch Wicked! First off, there is singing and dancing, secondly, it's a fairy tale rewriting from a "villains" POV, I really wished I had gotten into this series and I hope to read it one day... and watch it!
*interrupting side note from Krisha: This first time I read this book was 15 years ago and has been a favorite ever since. I have DEMANDED that Katie read this many times! Maybe I need to send her a copy...
Rick RiordanKrisha: I have read almost every Riordan book. I think my hesitation lies in that I can't decide if I really want to read about the Egyptian gods. These books sit at the bottom of my TBR list. Maybe it'll get bumped up soon over my sheer love for Riordan's writing style.
Jennifer L. Armentrout
Katie: I have no idea why I haven't read the Lux Series by Armentrout. I have read the Covenant series, which I love, and I have heard soooo many good things about the Lux series. I really hope to read it soon!
Colin Meloy & Carson Ellis
Krisha: I was in the middle grades section of Barnes & Noble and saw the cover of these books and fell in love. The pages have this natural fiber texture and the artwork is so pretty and unique. Yup, judging a book by it's cover.
