About meI'm 26 years old and obsessed with books! There is not enough time in the day for me to read to the extent that I would like to. I get lost in books that I read and it's basically my escape from everything else. I have recently obtained my BA in Psychology and am working on my MS in Environmental Policy & Management.

I noticed that you do not show the [Woodcliff Anthology] in your library, did you have a problem downloading the ebook you won in the giveaway?
I have no doubt you'll love all of the Harry Potter series. I owned them all, but I left them at my mom's. I need to get some more bookshelf space lol. I'm on the 3rd Uglies book, I didn't like the 2nd book as much as the 1st, but I think that's because it was mainly about pretties and they're soo annoying. Still a good series though. Have you read "Unwind" by Neal Shusterman? (not sure if I'm spelling his name right) It fits in with the survival dystopian stuff, it was pretty good.
I'm shocked you've never read Harry Potter?!?!?! That's insane lol. I've read them all, haven't seen any of the movies though. I am not a die-hard Harry Potter fan, but I did enjoy the books and I could read them again. I haven't read any of that series by Charlaine Harris. I just finished the latest Sookie Stackhouse book of hers, and was pretty disappointed. Maybe I'm just hard to please these days, I don't know. I did read Discovery of Witches and I liked it, but I didn't love it. I preferred the first half of the book, as soon as they became a couple I kind of got bored with it. I will probably read the next book when it comes out, just to see what the author does with the story though. I am almost through with the first of the Uglies series, and I do like it...I think I'm sort of a socialist, deep down inside, though not really. I like the idea of a society like Smoke, where people work toward a common goal, not live fueled by individual greed and materialism. I can tell it's going to be a good series and it does sort of remind me of the Hunger Games trilogy, in that survival aspect. I didn't get as much reading in as I wanted this weekend, but things never go as planned. At least I got a bit in, and I'm trying to get everything together so I can have some downtime when the kids are back home instead of having to run around after them and pick up as soon as they go to bed. I'll have some mommy-time. Ha, that'll last about a day. I really want to read the next book following Matched by Ally Condie?, but it doesn't come out until November, boo. That's the only book that I'm really looking forward to off the top of my head.

I saw your entry about "Discovery of Witches" and since I have it in my giant TBR pile was curious about you and wondered if we had any connections. Low and behold when I saw Autagua and Wetumpka I knew you had to live in Alabama. I too live in Alabama. In Tuscaloosa. Glad to find another LT'er in the state.

there's a list of authors , i browsed through the ones I knew. But I'm not sure what you've read.
I also found out that Hugh Laurie (tv's House) is an author, an apparently writes funny fiction. weird.

i added a few from maggie's list too
it's only 10 bucks a year right?? thats not bad.
I've decided to use librarything to get recs off the books I read that I LIKE .That way I don't get compared to a bunch of people with libraries full of the books I hated. And I keep most of my To-Read list on the other site, because I use this one for finding recommendations. I want recommendations based on what I've liked not the other junk I've read lol. I deleted a bunch of stuff off librarything to make room. I cant pay to use it.
I just read your review for A Discovery of Witches...I'm going to have to read it soon. You said you were bored with the mundane details, well I LOVE that stuff!! lol. I don't know why, ever since I could read those added details never bothered me. Like, I loved that throughout the Nancy Drew series they always had fried chicken and potato salad packed by her housekeeper on their sleuthing trips. I still remember that and I read those books when I was a little girl! All those little details help me envision the setting of the story and really immerse myself in it and the stick with me. I, on the other hand, usually get bored during the climax of the story, seriously...i usually skim them. I don't know why. Books with a lot of action tend to leave me going cross-eyed trying to keep track of it all, and wanting to grab a notebook to make notes. I don't like to have to work to read a book, but I don't like reading completely dumb books either. I just don't like too many things fighting for my attention within a book, that's how Game of Thrones is going for me right now and I'm avoiding reading it because I've gotten used to reading little YA books I could finish in a couple hours, but those don't leave me feeling fulfilled at all and I forget what the book was about the next day. That's why I joined Librarything in the first place, to keep track of all the books I've read because I could read 100 books and remember 3 of them. Like you told me, grammatical errors tick me off too. I hate Nicholas Spark books because they're too predictable, and the writing style is so poor. I really don't understand why they're soo popular. Same thing with Twilight, the first book was good, the following were slightly interesting but not good enough to worship them and throw them on top of the best book list like everyone is doing these days. I really can't wait until I don't have to hear about Twilight anymore lol. Maybe I'm just a picky person. ha.
lol...it's set in the south and in the mid 60s...i typically dont like reading about segregation and racial issues...but It's good so far. It's told from the help's pov. I love books in the 50s and 60s when theyre about the hollywood life. "Valley of the Dolls" is one of my all-time faves.
