[quote=""nona""]I have a friend who keeps trying to get me to read JR Ward books, is he a really good author, she seems to think so. The covers through me off, yes I admit it I judge by covers sometimes.[/quote] You have to like paranormals to get into these books, they're not great works of art but...

[quote=""Amanda""]I just finished watching August Rush, with JRM and Kerri Russell. Lovely movie, beautiful music (JRM sings!)..... I am still drying my eyes.[/quote] I saw this too the other day and although I'm not a great fan of JRM, I thought the movie was wonderful, Freddie Highmore is fantasti...

I do enjoy her books, they're a bit formulaic yes but addictive, just be sure to not read too many of them at once, it tends to get a bit tiresome. I've read The Pact, Mercy, Keeping Faith, Plain Truth, Perfect Match, My Sister's Keeper and Vanishing Acts. My favourite one is Plain Truth, followed c...

[quote=""Vanessa""]I really enjoyed The Book Thief, Lila. It is unusual having Death as the narrator, he saw everything in colours, didn't he? He had a bit of a warped sense of humour, if I remember. But I did find it a very moving book.[/quote] I'm one of the very few people that didn't really enjo...

[quote=""diamondlil""]Do you mean True Blood? I am looking forward to that one. I read the series that it is based on so it will be interesting to see how it compares.[/quote] I'm really curious about this series, I want to see if it's any better than the books, I really didn't like Charlaine Harris...
