Books / Re: What are you reading, part 3

I've been meaning to read the Bartimaes Trilogy FOREVER (at least a year). I actually have the library book with me--but very little time to read at present. If you're re-reading it, it must be pretty good. I've heard good things about it--we'll see what I think.

I must warn you, I like the Charlie Bone Books about a third as much, so some might say I have low standards.
  Also, the books are Very good in my low opinion. The whole thing is one big mystery you'll figure out almost completely in the second book. I really liked it anyways though, just to sound redundant. ;D

I think I'd be a Feruchemist, although Hemalurgy sounds awesome right now, mainly because, Sazed gathered enough strength to knockout an INQUISITOR! Powers of that sort would be awesome. Though I might miss the whole steel/iron burning stuff.

If you like Peeps and Midnighters, you'll LOVE the Uglies trilogy, which I think is the best of Scott Westerfeld's work. Science fiction in a not-too-distant future, in which everyone is ugly till they turn 16, and then they get the "pretty surgery" and get to go to New Pretty Town and be bubbly and happy. Commentary on our present-day obsession with beauty and a great story in and of itself. Chimera reviewed it here a while back--take a look.

Actually, I found these books AFTER I read the Uglies Trlogy on her advice.  Those books are awesome though.

I'm currently rereading the Protector Of the Small series, by Tamora Peirce, as well as The Magician's Guild by Trudi Canavan, and i'm trying to force myself through the Scarlet Letter for class[blech]
I JUST finished PEEPS by Scott Westerfeld, which is about vampires, and another by him, The Midnighters, about these five kids who can walk around during the 25th hour of the day, while we petty mortals wait for twelve o'one to roll around.

I'm also just starting on rereading the Bartimaes Trilogy, a child's series about a demon summoner in an alternate world's version of England.
 I NEED to go to a bookstore soon.

    Whoever it was that wrote the review on Uglies should march down to a bookstore and pick up PEEPS and Midnighter, both by Scott Westerfeld. Anytime I start to submit a review on one of them, I read it over and delete everything in a bout of scaredycatism, so I need one of you people to write them for me. PLEASE!?? :-[

I'm surprised you can't find anyone to discuss these with, Bumpken--they're all over the place.

 Actually Fell, I just can't find ANYONE in my general area who's more interested in Fantasy than the Almighty Football, Beer, and Finding A Job that my classmates are so interested in.   ::)Sometimes Highschool is a total drag*sigh*

That map was actually quite good!  What's more, the fact that the Well of Accension is where it is DOES explain the whole nuclear winter thing better....

Sorry Ookla! If you thinks I need to E-D-I-T then I will.

I personaly LOVE Blushweaver! In real life, I would have to throttle 'er, but, like Gilmore Girls, the gal's great when someone else has to deal with her. ;D

I love those books!!! Though, technically, it isn't a triloge, it's a series. Novik is already working on a 4th book involving a dragon plague brought over from Canada by a new breed of dragon.  I'm sooo happy someone else actually READS her books. I can't find anyone to discuss them with! ;D    GO TEMERAIRE!

I'd enlist, but so far, most armies have silly policies
about grenade-carrying penguins coming in with me. ::)
Viva le revolution! ;D
