Re: Books!

@Craycray17 It's about these kids who really love skateboarding but there's no where to go where they live so they always get in trouble, so they decided to make a petition and one of them dies, so it mixes in like a sort of trivial topic about there being no skatepark with a really big issue.
everybody's responses to this thread are like really well written big novels but I'm not really a big reader and I'm not real great at it so I need something I can follow really easily.

Re: Books!

That sounds interesting @j95! Ooh hey I have a suggestion of a good read you may enjoy!

It's called the outsiders by S.E.Hinton. It's about Galong gangs and the clash between the classes of boys in the neighbourhood who form the gangs. It's a really interesting read, but not complex! The incredible thing about it is how it's written in the 60s by a 16 year old girl, someone who wasn't involved with any of the like, yet she really writes such a realistic and believable account of boy culture.

Re: Books!

I have finished the Inheritance Cycle (Eragon) and now I don't know what to read. I've gone through Divergent, Eragon, Percy Jackson, Heroes of Olympus, Kane Chronicles, Vampire Academy, Harry Potter and quite a few Terry Pratchett books.

What now? Smiley Tongue

Re: Books!

I'm about to start A History of Love by Nicole Krauss. She was the wife of my favourite author and I heard they have similar writing styles, so I'm excited to read it!

Re: Books!

Alrighty, so today's prompt for an external photo a day thing that I do is reading.

So I want to know what book everyone is reading at the moment?

Mine is the complete works of Jane Austen. Currently reading sense and sensibility.

My entire life can be described in one sentence: It didn't go as planned and that's okay. ツ
