Who loves to Read???

Recommended Posts

i LOVE Phillipa Gregory's series of books. She wrote The Other Boleyn Girl, which was subsequently made into a movie. The books are much better and the plots are sooooo scandalous! Juicy, juicy books!! They are all historical fictions based on the Elizabethan time. I've also read The Boleyn Inheritance...great book!

I'm kinda a freak when it comes to my books I like the Anita Blake searies by Laural K Hammilton; basicly trashy romance novals with vampires and ware-animals hehe

 

V.C. Andrews, her books are kinda twisted with weird events like the guy the main charater is dateing turns out to be her brother kind of stuff...

 

Though right now I'm reading a book someone said on this site "saving your marrage before it starts" really really good points to think about when getting married

 

Though now I want to read the Something Borrowed searies but the first one is not on the kindal yet... but the second one is :/ booo

One really great book I've read recently was Scar Tissue by Anthony Keidis. Lead singer of Red Hot Chili Peppers. It's a book on his life. It was interesting to say the least. Made me feel very greatful for the life I've had!!

2. The Alchemist - Paul Cohello

3. The Alienist and The Angel of Darkness by Caleb Carr

I love Emily Giffen and Sophia Kinsella.

 

I just finished American Wife by Curtis Steinfeld. Interesting fiction based loosely on the life of a former first lady. Good read and a page turner.

I dont know if you have ever heard about this but its a real story of two girls who were in a car accident, one died and one ended up in a coma, and in a terrible mix-up the one family buried who they thought was their daughter while really their daughter was in the hospital. Dont worry I didnt just ruin the story, but it is an amazing read.
Oh I've heard about this--it actually happened to two girls from an Indiana school (which is the state I'm from). It was like a van or something from their school that wrecked...crazy story!

We use to have a book club on MDC. It was fun and then it faded off when I think people got a little busy and so noone discussed the books after we read it. If anyone is still interested I would love to do it again. I think we read some great books. And I am still reading 4 -5 books a week. And would love to discuss them with people.

I have yet to read & see the movie but I have heard from several friends (who have seen & read it) that they disliked the movie but love the books! I've just heard that they left things out of the movie or something like that!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
