Re: Anyone read novels... ever?

Last novel I read was "Killing Mr. Garrison" in my 2nd to last year of high school, bare in mind, Im 22 now so it's been almost 4-5 years since I read a novel...
Actually now that i think about that, thats a lie, I re-read "Death Note: Another note, the Los Angeles BB Murder Cases". a few months ago...
But I dunno if that counts?

Re: Anyone read novels... ever?

Fiction is a bit of a passion of mine, so I'm kinda obsessive with novels.
Lately I've been reading the "Foundation" series. Very, very, very, good.

I was reading Tokyo Vice before December and then I lost it somewhere between Philadelphia and Chicago without having finished it. I was enjoying it too...

I'm re-reading the Case Book of Sherlock Holmes right now. It's been a few years since I read it last so I figured I would pick it up again

Re: Anyone read novels... ever?

Fiction is my heart and soul - I have stacks upon stacks of books waiting for my attention, and stacks and stacks more that I've already read.

Right now, oddly enough, I'm reading nonfiction: Defiance by Nechama Tec, which the movie (starring uber-hunk Daniel Craig) was based on.

Harry Potter, if that counts. My favorite series. Yup, HP nerd.

I haven't in a while, but my other favorite series, novel-wise, is Redwall. Amazing books right there. So much adventure. I've never been pulled into a fantasy realm as fascinating as this one.

Re: Anyone read novels... ever?

In the past year I've only read one novel, which is a shame, but my life has just been too hectic. That novel I speak of was "To Kill a Mocking Bird". I'm also a fan of the Harry Potter series. I've read the entire series enough times for a dozen people. I started reading when I was three years old, started tutoring other kids when I was five and six, and was always involved with my school's library. Needless to say, literature was a big passion of mine growing up. Not to say it isn't anymore, it just evolved into many different variations.

I've heard good things about the Percy Jackson series, I may give it a spin eventually.

Re: Anyone read novels... ever?

Oy...it's been a long couple years...I've read quite a few good ones...

All 7 Harry Potter's...Love em...favorite series
I've read the Dark Tower series by Stephen King up to 5...I really need to just go finish...just can't find time for this one though :-/
- Read The Shining, Christine, Pet Semetary, Carrie, andThe Dead Zone by King as well recently
For School we read The Scarlet Letter...which was horrible imo...but it's a 'classic' so, meh...
Also read Candide, which I enjoyed.
And Brave New World...but it wasn't my cup of tea.
There was To Kill A Mockingbird, which was a very good book.
Let's see...what else...Oh yes... The Crucible was interesting...
Lord of the Flies was good...
Of Mice and Men, The Pearl, and Grapes of Wrath are all Steinbeck, so therefore I dislike them...I just do not care for his books at all...
Narnia series...
OH! The Great Gatsby as well...I loved that one...that was probably my favorite one for English class :biggrin:

Re: Anyone read novels... ever?

Well, I haven't read anything recently... I've read the first two of the Eragon books and am working on the final one, but stopped halfway through like half a year ago, so I'm gonna need to re-read that. I've read the entire Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. I've also read the entire Harry Potter series... I don't read much anymore though.

I read constantly. I'm a huge fan of The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher, and am currently reading Bright Shiny Morning by James Frey. Also having lots of fun right now with Ozzy's new auto bio I Am Ozzy.

Isaac Azimov. My god how I never thought anyone else would be reading it. I'm still looking for my dad's copies. He's got them somewhere amongst all the belongings in this house. It's just a matter of locating them. Wow; how are they!? Are they as good as I've heard?

Re: Anyone read novels... ever?

I'm a fan of the fiction and fantasy genres. I find myself enjoying a novel more if I can tell the author put a lot of thought into their work to make a rich plot. I'm also a sucker for series with recurring characters where past events actually affect what happens in later books.

I love Salvatore's works, especially the Sellswords trilogy! Also a big fan of Friedman's Coldfire trilogy.

You need to get on this.

You need to get on this right now.

Although, for the last book, a warning should be issued. DO NOT READ THE CODA. Seriously. He tells you not to read it. I was warned but I didn't listen.

I DIDN'T LISTEN!

That aside I like reading a lot. Looking back on my school days I wish I had read the books given to me with a bit more enthusiasm. But like most of my interest I'll try anything once
