The Series Of Unfortunate Events is really good. I'm only on the 7th one thought.

Anyone know what some of the others' themes are?

I'd also like to hear some of Olaf's other disguises.
So far, up to wear I am, he's been a research assistant named Stephano, a Captain named Sherm, a receptionist named Shirley, a Coach named Genghis, and an auctioneer named Gunther.

The Guide! By R.K. Narayan. It's odd, but fun to read.

Why has no one mentioned the Alex Rider series? It's an awesome teenage super-spy series. RAWR. It's basically a smaller James Bond with a little more angst since Alex is a teenager struggling with life as well. XD

Oh yeah, The Spiderwick Chronicles are also good, by Tony DiTrezelli (Spelling?) and Holly Black. The movie is out, but the books are so much better, they've even got a few nice pictures in em. Good for ages 8+ or so.


The Demon Child series by Jennifer Fallon is good as well, for teenagers.


Does anyone know a good bookshop in Victoria, Australia, or in Melbourne that sells the second series of Warriors? It's either that or EBay baby.

Yes, I just finished one of those ^^ I'll have to get the others..

Chronicles of narnia are also good, and harry potter. (Although the CON are a bit short, i finished The last 2 the night i got them, they're still pretty good ^^)

Talking Re: Cool Books Discussion

The book Indie Girl by Kavita Dasawani was really good! I also liked reading Eragon, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and I especially loved Marie Osmond's book Behind the Smile, despite my not having postpartum depression (I'm only 13), but I'm a devoted fan of Marie and it's great to get into her mind for once and see what her life is like.

I'm interested in the Series Of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. So far I've gotten to about the middle of number 8, The Hostile Hospital.

Just finished Angela's ashes a while ago. It was a really good book, now one of my favourites... Some other ones I've enjoyed include the discworld series (good, light reading), and also "To kill a mocking bird" (absolutely fantastic). I'm also about to read "Wuthering heights" by Emily Bronte.

The Redwall Series by Brain Jacques was pretty good, imo.

They have fresh little rats that run around with knives and shank all the rival gangs.

An epic novel for all you bestiality lovers.

That was a very deep novel that I think could really change the views of any reader.

It turned me homosexual; his underpants are just too hot to resist.

LUCKY! I wants Outcast! (Ah wells, I got a Borders gift card)

You mean, Cherith Baldry, Kate Cary, and Victoria Holmes? Yep, they really need to keep writing these! ^^

I think they should make a movie, seriously.
