Another Book


I feel like I'm on a roll here...I'm just about finished with The Host. The only thing is, if I end up flying to Florida I won't have anything to read on the way there. I'm all out of books at my house and I haven't heard of anything new that interests me. So I'm needing some help here. Currently I've been liking all these science fiction love stories...so give me some idea's before I leave.
Anyways back to The Host, I started reading it when I first bought it a couple months ago and I never really got into it. I only got past the first two chapters and I was really confused. But Saturday I decided to try reading it again and once you get past the slow beginning, it's pretty darn good. I'm surprised how much I like it right now. I'm just really hoping it doesn't have a bad ending...don't soil it for me though. I'm almost there. Only about 50 more pages.
And as for the Hunger Games. Emma finished it and loved it. Then I let my friend Kylee borrow it and she's about half-way through and she really likes it, but I guess her mom saw it and started to read it and she loves it. I thought that was kind of funny. A little chain reaction...
Now Disneyworld. I find out today if I'll be able to go, at 2:15. If the doctor gives me the ok I can go and if I'm not in to much pain or anything when I get my new brace. I am extremely excited! I haven't been able to bend my knee for nearly 2 weeks now. I bet it will feel so good to finally stretch that knee out! I'll be able to put my own shoes & socks on, sit in my desk at school properly, and maybe even walk faster right away. My only concern for Disneyworld is the flight, hopefully I'm not to uncomfortable sitting on a plane for 8 hours. I know I can hardly stand sitting at school for 3 hours and even then I get a break to walk to my next class I still hate it. Hmm. I'll just have to tough it out. Disneyworld's worth it.

Good luck! I hope the doc gives you the go-ahead.

So, I'm totally with you on the SciFi love story stuff. I'm desparate to find another good one. I read Battle Royale after Hunger Games:

http://www.amazon.com/Battle-Royale-Koushun-Takami/dp/156931778X/ref=pd_bbs_sr_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1224703926&sr=8-2

It has a similar premise to Hunger Games. It's a real page turner, love story, tons of twists, but be warned: it's not for the faint of heart. Gut wrenching!

I'm still on the lookout for more, so let me know if you find something good.
