Catching Fire (The Second Book of the Hunger Games)
Scholastic Press, 2010
This is a MUST READ! I find myself a little sad that I've finished it and am dying for the third book to be released next month. Not a series that I thought I'd be interested in but I was obsessed with reading it...didn't want it to end but couldn't stop reading!
The Glass Castle: A Memoir
If you ever have felt sorry for yourself--read this.
I grew up poor with a father who was absent most of the time and was drunk all of the time. After reading this book, I realized how much worse it could have been. This was an eye opener as to how bad things can get. I am successful and the author of this book also made something of her life. It just fortifies the fact that when your survival instinct kicks in--you can do it! I highly ...
This Time Together: Laughter and Reflection
This time together
Absolutely wonderful book from someone who has made many of us laugh over the years - and continues to do so.
Harper Collins, Inc., 2010
The "Scream" of vampire fiction!
This book is the "Scream" of paranormal fiction! Remember how that movie kinda poked fun at the horror genre at the same time it was itself a horror flick? Meg Cabot has done that with Insatiable! She pokes a bit of fun at the whole popular vampire fiction craze (oh yes, there are references to sparkly vamps and Sookie Stackhouse) at the same she is pulling off telling an awesome bit of vampire ...
The Hunger Games
Scholastic Press, 2008
WOW! Powerful, fun, fast, well done.
This book was amazing. I read it all night and even cried! What an amazing writer. It was very violent for a young audiance so I would recomend 14 and up and even then you might want to preview it yourself before your teen reads it. There was a nice romance between the charaters but it never went farther than a kiss whitch was great! I loved this book and will be reading the 2 as soon as I can ...
Sliding Into Home
I really enjoyed this book, it had alot of honesty in it. There were some parts that made my jaw drop, some parts that made me tear up a little, and some parts that had me laughing out loud. If you are a Kendra fan, this is a must. You wont be able to put it down.
Oprah: A Biography
A GREAT READ...REGARDLESS OF THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS
Let me premise my review, first, by saying I AM NOT AN OPRAH WORSHIPER. That being said, I can't deny the fact that Kitty Kelly's book was a fun experience. In fact, I don't think Oprah herself could have written a better biography about herself than Kitty Kelley did. The main criticism that some of the one star reviews in Amazon.com mentioned was that that Kelley just rehashed everything ...
Confessions of a Prairie Bitch: How I Survived Nellie Oleson and Learned to Love Being Hated
What a wonderful book!
Like many other reviewers, I have read all three books. This one was the best of the three. It had many interesting facts about both the show and Alison. I was so very fortunate to see Alison at Melissa Gilbert's book signing. She graciously took a photo with my young daughter (who said "Mommy, it's the mean girl!" when she saw Alison). We then saw Alison again at Melissa Sue Anderson's book ...
DUTTON ADULT, 2010
A Mystery Tale with Plenty of Twists and Turns
Caught had almost everything I'd hope for in a good mystery story such as: a well developed & interesting protagonist (Wendy Tynes), an excellent storyline full of twists and turns to keep me guessing until the end of the book, especially about what happened to Dan Mercer. Coben's Caught was a near "5". My only complaint is that the two law enforcement characters, Sheriff Walker and Frank ...
One of the best books I've read in years. What's amazing is how it's by turns both laugh-out-loud funny (and I NEVER laugh out loud when reading) and, in the end, deeply moving. What's especially astonishing is how, while it's a quick, easy read (I raced through it in a day and a half), it's also no less profound for being eminently readable. The last page and last lines, especially, move ...
Suck It, Wonder Woman!: The Misadventures of a Hollywood Geek
St. Martin's Press
This is Attack of the Shows Olivia Munn's first book. She has been a fan favorite for 4 years now and has a massive following of fans from all of her projects. Now she has a book and let me tell you it's incredible. If you are not a fan of Munn's then put the book down you might despise it. If however you are familiar with Munn and find her somewhat funny pick it up and enjoy. This book is ...

Created in full collaboration with ABC Entertainment and ABC Studios, this will be the first and only fully licensed and comprehensive reference to all things LOST, and it ...
Love Tori Spelling! This is the second audio I have of hers. She tells the story Mommywood with her own personality. As if she was telling it to you. I found it very entertaining.
Avatar: The Last Airbender (The Art of the Animated Series)
The book is excellent! The quality is top-notch. The pages are nice and thick, the printing brings the amazing drawings to life, and the coffee table size of it is perfect for the content, which is incredible. I've never seen a single source that gives more in-depth, behind the scenes information on the series than this book. And it's narrated by the creators themselves! If you're a fan of the ...
A Bold Fresh Piece of Humanity: A Memoir
I bought this for my husband for Father's Day and he absolutely loved it. I was very thrilled to find it on Amazon for only $6.99 when it actually retails for $26.00. The book came in just a few days and it was brand new! Thanks Amazon for finding the deals!
Tip It!: The World According to Maggie
Let's All "Tip It" with Maggie!
I have to agree with all of the other reviewer's of this extremely well-written, funny book - Maggie Griffin is an American treasure! She's like your grandmother - funny, sweet, down-to-earth, full of wisdom and common sense - and yet, you wouldn't want to cross her (especially when you read her letter to the thief who stole an antique sword right out of their basement!). I've always loved ...
American on Purpose: The Improbable Adventures of an Unlikely Patriot
HarperCollins e-books, 2009
Both this book for a long airplane ride and did not regret it. Craig is funny, witty, self-depreciating, and truthful. What an entertainer: on screen and on paper!
Extra Lives: Why Video Games Matter
Written by a gamer, for gamers!
Tom Bissell makes it plain from the start: this book is about a writer who plays lots of console video games. He's not here to talk about how crisp games look in 1080p or provide a laundry list of games we should buy. Instead, he tackles questions which most reviewers tend to overlook, such as how a game makes us feel while playing it, and how those feelings mesh or clash with the gameplay ...

My Booky Wook
HarperCollins e-books, 2009
an entertaining read
