    The Harry Potter movies weren't that bad, but they were missing a lot of scenes that were in the books.

    I don't think there's going to be a continuation to the Percy Jackson movie. Saw it, didn't like it that much. Poor Hades

    The Cirque du Freak though, the ending hints a continuation. idk how they would continue it, now the plot is so different and quite a lot have been revealed...

    Speaking about CdF, Shan is making another series about Larten Crepsley. I might try to read that someday... My CdF collection isn't even complete yet though. Book number 1 and 3, I think, I haven't read yet.

    Yup, at least the main storyline doesn't differ that enormously though.

    Anyone read Caught? Written by Harlan Coben.

    Why you want to join: books are very entertaining, and are an excuse to get off the internet are the next best thing compared to the internet. When I need to take a break, it's reading time. As a matter of fact, I'll do some reading now.

    Current book: The Red Pyramid. Yes, I'm quite slow.
    Welcome to the club!

    Also, added a welcome banner! Thanks KB3!

    Nice banner, Chello!

    I read the Hunger Games. Violence, fiction, an original concept; it's great. Once I'm done with The Red Pyramid, I'll start on Catching Fire. Aspiring novelists like me need to read, read, and read some more. SPPf is trying to thwart my plans, but I think I'll manage.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    Like I said in my previous post, and if you can't tell from my sig, I'm a writer. Ex Tenebris Lux: Via is the first part of a trilogy. I'm almost done with the first draft. The first few chapters can be found here. I encourage all to read it and give feedback. I already have ideas on how to improve for the second draft, but I welcome more. Even if it is just for that brief preview.

    Anyways, I look forward to reading The Red Pyramid in the future when I finish the rest of the books I'm currently reading. And I express interest in The Hunger Games. But I know nothing about it. Nobody can explain it to me without unnecessary use of sarcasm, or, in the case of my kid brother, ranting about how the movie better be good. So can somebody tell me about it?

    Accelerated reading means you basically scan through instead of reading 1 by 1 , this way you will read faster like meeee!

    Accelerated Reader is a stupid system in public schools where certain books cost a certain amount of points. After reading said books, you are required to take a brief test on the book on the computer, and based on how many questions you answer correctly, you'll get AR points. The points get you nothing. It's just a method of trying to force people to read books that they don't want to read. When I was in school, all the books I read were adult level books that were worth nothing, so I averaged zero points, and I got in trouble for it. All the AR books were quite like the selection from a summer reading program or course reading: agonizingly dull and suicide-inducingly depressing.

    Yeah, AR is something really stupid. For us, every semester our LA teacher assigns a certain amount of AR(or accelarated reader) points for us to achieve throughout the marking period. You basically have to read books and depending on how long, thick, or hard the book is, is how they decide the points, right now im reading Mockingjay By Suzanne Collins, and it is worth 15 AR points, so when l finish, l go to our school library, take the comprehension test, and than recieve how ever many points l get.
