    Hi guys...I've been abscent due to health issues, but excited for a new book. Also, CSandCK- I just got done reading a book that they say is the adult version of a cross between Twilight and Harry Potter- A Discovery of Witches. I've never ready Twilight or Harry Potter, but I enjoyed "Witches" a lot!

    I really enjoyed the series! My favorites were the first two. The third was a little slow for me, but I still enjoyed it. I was so torn between Peeta and Gale, but in the end I was happy that her and Peeta were together. When she talked about feeling her baby move in her belly...ugh...tears! This series certainly lived up to the hype!

    Per recommendations from this thread I just finished The Book Thief....I thought it was good. I enjoyed it. SO SAD and I did shed some tears! I am kind of surprised that it's Young Adult. I wouldn't think that the writing style is the easiest for teens, but who knows. Good suggestion, thanks! Now onto the last book of the hunger games...

    I was going to set this one out because I'm a big nerd and like my books to match so was going to wait for the second two to come out on paperback before I start the first..but...I needed a book to read on Tuesday and it was the only new one I had on hand that I hadn't read. Finished it last night and went out and bought the second. I guess I don't need my books to match after all!! The first one was such a good read! Looking forward to the others!!

    I only have a minute so can't answer the questions right now, but I just wanted to say that I LOVED this book. It is one of my new favorites. I couldn't put it down. It was a very heartbreaking story. I didn't know really anything about the French involvement in the Holocaust and looked up things up after reading the book. It was just amazing to me that the French police officers agreed to participate. My husband is a police officer and I just kept thinking about him and his squad, friends, ect from the department and it's just amazing that the officers participated. It's just absolutely unfathomable to me that they could contribute while having their own families and little ones at home. It just shows how brainwashed people were at the time. Even though it was a heartbreaking story I didn't finish it feeling depressed. It's hard to explain, but I felt a sense of peace. That this woman had fought to get this story out and was determined and brought attention to the subject to keep it alive. Great book.

    Cool. I picked up this book about a month ago and have been looking forward to reading it. I hear that you want to read the next as soon as you finish! It was $7 at target if anyone else wants to buy it.
