Currently reading The White Mountains. Or Welcome to Camden Falls (the first book in Ann M Martin's Main Street series).

EDIT: Next Week, I'll probably be reading a signed copy of MacGregor Tells the World.

I'm nearly done with Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer, the thrid book in the Twilight series. And holy crap, it is amazing. Possibly even better than Twilight, which I frequently quote as the best book ever. My poor romantic heart just about burst when [spoiler]Edward got down on bended knee to propose.[/spoiler] I was actually SOBBING. Anyway, it's taking every ounce of my self control to pace myself with this book. I don't want to finish it too fast, but the suspense really is killing me!

^ I think I've heard about that book... most people were saying it was awful though :?
I might give it a try anyway, I've been in the mood for soppy romantic stuff lately.

I'm not really reading any books at the moment... but I read a couple of rather... odd... Baldur's Gate fanfics, if that counts. Gods, I really should buy some real books before my brain deteriorates completely.

I finally finished reading LOTR after reading it for a year now. That's one book I don't plan on re-reading for a very long time because of just how long it takes to get through it all. I've now started on His Dark Materials: The Golden Compass by Phillip Pullman and the first volume of the Crest Of The Stars novels by Hiroyuki Morioka.

I just finished reading yet another warriors book. This time it was a one shot called "Firestar's Quest"

these books are continuing to be as awesome as ever. I really REALLY recommend them to you all. They are easily as good as Harry Potter.

Wow, it's been a while since I posted in this topic...

Anywho, I'm up to book 8 in the Wheel of Time series, titled "The Path of Daggers"

Now I'm just hoping that Mr. Jordan gets well enough to finish writing the last book before I get to it... I doubt that will happen.

I just finished reading the first book of His Dark Materials. I really enjoyed it but now I'm worried about how the movie will handle the book's anti-religious themes since they're rather important to the plot. The book is basically like the anti-Narnia. ^^;;

I'm now starting on Robotech: Genesis by Jack Mckinney and I'm reading Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban for a third time.

I'm currently reading "Wicked" (thanks to Cardcaptor Takato's sig 8) , it's really good) at my place, "Brother Surgeons" (about the life of an influential surgeon in the late 17th century- true story) at my boyfriend's place, and Tamora Pierce's "Shatterglass" (there is only two books of hers that I haven't read) at the uni library.

Just finished "Comes the Blind Fury" by John Saul (my first book by him, and I really like his writing style so far), and started re-reading the Flowers in the Attic series by VC Andrews.

That woman seriously had some issues. I still need to build my plot-spinner for her books. There would seriously be like 3 options...

LMAO.

You may be right about her. XD I looked up her info on wikipedia, and apparently she had all kinds of medical problems, including wheelchair confinement.

And seriously...your optinos would be like..."raped by relative", "given away/sold by natural parents", and "unrequited love".
