Cool. Thanks for the list, Ariel (and for reviving this thread). I think I read on the forum on Jim Butcher's website that there may be a chance for all the short stories to be collected in one volume/collection next year. Or maybe that's just wishful thinking on my part because I don't want to go o...

Ever since I read Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger in 11th grade, I've always wanted it as a movie. Another book I think should be made into a movie is The Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher, as well as the Codex Alera series (also by Jim Butcher). Preferably, I'd go with the latter, as there ha...

You know, I voted in this poll way back and I don't remember what I voted for. Back in high school, I think I was probably just under ten books (and I'm not counting the text books or the books I had to read for English). The only time I had for reading in high school was thirty minutes twice a week...

A couple years ago my favorite series would have been Harry Potter. But now I really like The Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher, and the Codex Alera series (also by Jim Butcher). Although at this point my top favorite over the two would be the Codex Alera series--that's only because I'm reading it...

I just absolutely love this series :D I just finished Grave Peril (the 3rd book), and for quite some time I couldn't put it down. I was just so into it. Part of me wanted to finish it so I could get on to the 4th book (as well as because it was just so thrilling to read), and yet another part of me ...

I'm also a fan of And Then There Were None. (I'll have to re-read that book, it was so great the first time around; I just need to refresh my memory of how great it was :D ) I have some other books of hers, and I've also read The Man in the Brown Suit as well (didn't like it all that much; maybe I'l...

I like reading some fanfiction. And writing, as well. But as of lately, I haven't had much time to read a good piece of fanfic or even write a good piece (I've started a bunch, but I still need to finish them). I used to like reading Buffy or Angel, but got out of that fandom (well, I still like it....

Some books I recommend are: Loneseome Dove by Larry McMurty (I just started reading it, but it's a very good book. And it's a western, for all you Western lovers out there.) The Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher (I absolutely recommend these books. It's fantasy/science fiction/horror, and it's abo...

Personally, I didn't like Lord of the Flies (but I know some people who do, so I guess it all depends on the person). I have Animal Farm, but I'm too busy with reading other books that I haven't had time to pick it up. But I did read 1984 when I was a senior in high school and I found it more appeal...

Such a wide array of genres...and so I couldn't really pick just one, because I do like suspense; I do like science fiction and fantasy, and horror. But if I had to pick just one I'd pick literary fiction (the type kids often read in schools). I guess because they can practically fit any genre at al...

William Shakespeare's plays (my English teacher always got paranoid about saying 'book' and 'play'; she always corrected us when we used the word book instead of play when reading Shakespeare's works) are a love/hate relationship for me. I didn't like Romeo and Juliet, but I did love Julius Caesar, ...

I read this book back in the 7th grade and I absolutely loved it. Sure, some people died, but the author was drawing from her real life experiences while writing the book, so it had to be realistic. And the book-it's like you can re-read it year after year and it'll never get old (well, it seems tha...

I'm in college English at college and we have to read Cannery Row by John Steinback. Which is, needless to say, far better than Grapes of Wrath (which I had no desire to read between the summer of 9th and 10th grade) but not as good as Of Mice and Men.
