Mimori Kiryu

I'll join back up with this club! ^^ The book series that I am currently reading is the Twilight series (Twilight, New Moon and Eclypse) by Stephenie Meyer. Eclypse is amazing to say the least. The novel that I recently finished was My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult. I can't remember the last time I read a realistic fiction that touched me in so many ways.

Mimori Kiryu, I've never heard of the Twilight series; what is it about?

Mimori Kiryu, I've never heard of the Twilight series; what is it about?Just call me Mimori. ^^; And I'll be glad to tell you what its about. :3

The Twilight series is about a girl named Bella Swan. She moves to Forks, Washington to live with her father, Charlie, while her mother and her mother's new husband go to Florida. (He's a baseball player so he moves around a lot). Bella thinks that moving to a rainy city is going to be horrible since she used to live in sunny Phoenix, Arizona. When she arrives, she makes friends easily and on the first day of school while during lunch with her friends, she sees a table of strikingly good looking people. She's told that they are the Cullens, the rich family. They're all brothers and sisters and were all adopted by the doctor of the town. They don't really talk to anyone else and they keep to themselves. Bella is amazed by how perfect they seem and one of the Cullens, named Edward, Bella says is the most beautiful. Surprisingly, the next class (Biology), Bella is paired up with Edward as partners for the year, but he keeps acting weird around her, always fidgeting and never sitting still. He clutches the lab table they sit at alone fiercely, almost breaking it. Bella thinks it has something to do with that he doesn't like her, but its completely opposite from what she thinks. Later on, after some amazing feats by Edward, such as superhuman abilities in saving Bella from being hit by an out-of-control van about to crush her in the student parking lot of the high school. She realizes that the van hit him but that Edward seemed to be holding the van away from her, it shows that Edward is more than she thinks. As time passes, she learns what he and his supposed brothers and sisters are. He's a vampire.

It's a great series and the 4th installment comes out August of next year, so its a long wait but well worth it. It's better than I describe it is. You should definitely check it out. ^^

12th October 2007, 1:01 PM
It sounds like an interesting book. But, being vampires, how are they out in daylight?

I just finished reading a book called "Rise of the Black Wolf." It was ok, but I kind of suspected the plot twist at the end. Now I'm reading "The Three Musketeers."

Hope we get more members soon...

I am reading the Great Tree of Avalon now. That is 3 books in a week.

What is the most books you have read in a week?

I have read Deathly Hallows 592 times completely since I got it that night. Serious.

crobatman
15th October 2007, 4:34 AM

so, time for another topic:

What is your definition of a bookworm?

I think it is just someone who enjoys reading a good book. Someone with a love for the stories no matter what genre they are.

MondoTR
15th October 2007, 9:52 AM
Whoa, slow down on the topics. Your second one was thirty-six minutes after the first.

I don't read as much lately since I'm busy and I can't remember the most I've read in a week from before. But I'd have to sat at least ten.

And for me a bookworm is someone who enjoys reading and does it a lot.

It sounds like an interesting book. But, being vampires, how are they out in daylight?Read to find out. <3 XD I ain't gonna tell you. Besides, lots of rules and supposed facts about vampires ain't true. Edward tells Bella in the series anyway, so you'll just have to read to find out! ^^

Since we're kind of on the topic of vampires, anyone ever read Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice? Or any others in the series?

Never heard of it.

Since we're also kind of on the topic of monsters and movies based on books, I just wanted to point something out. In the original book Frankenstein, the monster has superhuman speed. But in every Frankenstein movie, he moves at roughly the speed of a turtle with a broken leg. How terrifying - "The monster is coming!! Walk for your life!" Why do you think they changed something like that when they started making Frankenstein movies?

MondoTR
15th October 2007, 11:31 PM
It seems slow creatures happen a lot in monster movies. I guess the anticipation is supposed to make it more frightening or something. *shrugs*

Superhuman speed? That's cool. I like when people have powers. That's why the story I'm writing is like that. ^_^

Mimori - Totally worth the money. Or we could just borrow each others books. XD

As for making something sci-fi, well it means science fiction so it could just mean fake (usually supposedly advanced) technology. But space seems associated with it as well.

I haven't read Animorphs in a long time. Didn't one of them get stuck in animal form? A bird, I think.

Tobias got stuck as a bird in book one, but was able to morph back into his human self after book 13 (but only for 2 hours). It confused me how he did it.

May I also join this club?

The last book I read was "The Children's Bach" by Helen Garner, but it was for school. It's by a random Australian author, so not many people will know it - it's a little weird; about the modern world vs. traditional values and also about emancipation.

But before that it was "A Thousand Splendid Suns" by Kahled Hosseini and it was brilliant.

So, may I?

A few good books I read are The Golden Compass (Movie on Dec. 7th 2007) and the Subtle Knife. Both by Phillip Pullman. The series is called His Dark Materials.

his dark materials series is great! although i don't know why they renamed the film of it "the golden compass"- i prefered it being named "the northern lights", sounds much better imo. but anyway, brilliant series- i love the idea of everyone having a daemon with them that can be any animal depending on your personality and stuff! i took a quiz a while ago that said my daeomon would be a snowleopard! :D

I finished reading "Lord of the Flies." Pretty depressing book...I wonder what life would have been like for the boys on the island after they got back to civilization? They killed, tortured and hunted each other on the island...Would they go on to become serial killers or something after being rescued? Would they be able to just forget about the island? What do you think?

Historical fiction. But I have read some books that I enjoyed in that genre, so I don't dislike all historical fiction.

Hi. May I join?

I love most books, though I admit I am highly critical of the books everyone says are amazing, mainly because of the hype leading me to be disappointed? I love the Harry Potter books, and have been reading them from day 1, but I admit I dislike Lord of the Rings and His Dark Materials.

Both series were hyped up to the extreme, and when I read them, they were boring. And I challenge ANYONE to actually say they understand what Northern Lights/Subtle Knife/Amber Spyglass is on about. I doubt Pullman knows.

But other than those 2 series', I am a huge Fantasy buff. I love the genre too much ;)

I'm sorry i can't give more detail but it's actually a pretty good read. I am now up to chapter 4 in golden compass and it's pretty good so far.

I agree with that. I bought the three books in one volume about a week before Christmas and finished them on Christmas Eve. I heard a lot of comments that the movie was crap and that the book wasn't very good either but i thought they were really good. I found all three of them to be a delightful read

Theyre over complicated and overhyped. Its like The Lord Of The Rings, I didnt like them either. Dont get me wrong, Im possibly one of the Biggest Fantasy Fans (Try saying that 10 times fast ;) ) ever, but His Dark Materials and Lord of the Rings dont appeal to me.

Anywho, on the topic of books Im reading, I got Snakehead (By Anthony Horowitz) for XMas. Its the 7th Alex Rider book. Im only 2/3 chapters in so far; its been busy here; but its shaping up to be just as good as the rest.

And on the topic of Alex Rider books, my order (Fav to Least Fav):

1- Point Blanc
2- Scorpia
3- Stormbreaker
4- Eagle Strike
5- Skeleton Key
6- Ark Angel

Point Blanc was AMAZING, but Ark Angel was a bit too much. I mean, the rest of what happens in Alex Rider is "Believable", but Space is too much.

And on the topic of Anthony Horowitz, who here reads the Power of Five series. They are AMAZING. I love them. I cant wait till the 4th book comes out.

I received a few books for Christmas and i am slowly reading through them now.

I got the last two books of the Will Buster series by Odo Hirsch. I have just started the final book in the series and it is awesome at the moment.

I also got the whole seconds set of Deltora Quest books by Emily Rodda and a book called The Alchemyst by Michael Scott. I haven't read it yet but it sounds really good.

EDIT: I hadn't read any of Anthony Horowitz' books yet but seeing the comments DCD made i had a look at them on his website and they do sound interesting (especially the Power of Five). I might look into buying some of them. My parents just gave me $100 dollars for getting a really good end of year report so i might use some of that on one of his books (or more).

Can I join please? I mostly enjoy teenage books like Jacquline Wilson, but there are many others I enjoy too!

Currently Reading: The Illustrated Mum
Just finished reading: Candyfloss
(Just a note, you may not have heard of any of the books I talk about as most of them will probably only be relesed in England!)

If anyone's going to...
I say Armoured Dragon, since he's the most active.

Only if no one else will. I'm already a member of a lot of clubs, and I own two of them...

Havent had much time for reading of late. Only about 6 Chapters into Snakehead

And I say Armoured Dragon deserves to lead the club most. S/He (Sorry :S) has always been friendly and helpful and knows what s/he is talking about

But Armoured Dragon (who is male) is only going to be the new owner if no-one else wants to.
How about you, DieChavsDie?

I'm in a few. Anyone want me to be owner?
(unless crobatman comes back, of course.)

well since you are the only one currently up for the job since everyone else is too busy I say so. Hope you do a good job and good luck to you.

Right then. I'm going to make the new thread, but will it be ok if I change a few rules?

I was thinking of having Co-owners (you 3) and if someone's been inactive for over 1month and a half, then they get kicked out. Also, getting new members to PM one of us asking to join, to show they have read the rules, and if they ask in the thread they can't join (doesn't count for all previous members) ?

Also, should I keep Crobatman as a member?

Sounds good...I guess you could keep Crobatman on the member list, just in case he comes back.

Have you posted it? I cant find it

Also, If you would like a Co-Owner/s to start off, Im sure myself and Armoured Dragon (Sorry if Im being a bit preemptive AD) wouldnt mind being Co-Owners

It hasn't been created yet. I am finding HDM a really good read. I have a mind that understands things very quickly DCD, so it may be that. But I found lord of the rings boring, exceot The Hobbit, it was very entertaining for me.

Well its about time this darn thing came back up. Ahem. May I join?

Cybermew- My mind is like that too. I can take in a situation (Even in TV. Especially in Murder Mysteries/Drama's etc) and work out what will happen/"whodunnit". Its not that my mind doesnt work in the right way, its just that His Dark Materials is completely Unstimulating, boring and flat, with no real comprehensible plot that makes sense

Babylon- By the looks of things, a new thread will be made, so it may be best to post there, but I am pretty sure you will be able to join once you list things such as "Fav Book", "What book you are currently reading" etc.

Dark Arceus
16th January 2008, 8:19 PM
Right then. From a few minuites, when I will make the new thread, everyone post there. Babylon, you'll have to join the new thread, but make sure you check the new rules!

I'll add the new thread as soon as it's made.

EDIT: Right, it's made. All that remains is for the mods to approve it!

EDIT2: TA DAAAA!!!! Here it is!:
