Is it too late to join in?  If not here goes and if so sorry :(

 

The Hunger Games, I really was surprised with how much I liked this trilogy.  I was even more surprised with how strong it was for a teen audience.  These were not light reads and there were some pretty heavy choices to be made.  However, I think it did show that kids are more aware of the issues than adults may think they are. 

 

And THE KITE RUNNER was a beautiful book as well, I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did and I look forward to what you all think about it.

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!

Hope you are feeling/doing much better now Tricia!  Thanks for the recommendation on "A Discovery of Witches", I'll probably check that book out next.  I've never read Harry Potter, but will admit to being a big fan of all the vampire books. :)

OH girls. I feel bad for the last two books. I had a death in the family and a lot of stress. I forgot about the book totally. So two days ago I got it and rushed through. CSandCK THANK YOU SO MUCH for this book recommendation. I have seen it tons of times in the book store but thought it would be horrible. I'm addicted! I read the first 2 in less than 2 days and I just started number three. When you said Harry Potter meets Twilight I had serious doubts. But that's exactly what this is. I love these more than I loved Twilight. Book two made me sob like a child!! I definitely recommend this book!

 

Now let's discuss! Did anyone else enjoy this as much as me????

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
