  1. Never Have I Ever...

    Neither have I. Never have I ever had a cup of tea without a spoonful of sugar. Naughty me.
  2. Book Titles A to Z

    Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen
  3. Never Ending Song Titles - Part 8

    Livin' on the Edge - Aerosmith.
  4. The Book Thief - Markus Zusak

    Yes, definitely understand where you're coming from. However, being the coward I am, I had to induce myself in another world (specifically Miles Halter's, from Looking For Alaska) to distract myself from getting emotional over the emotive context Zusak uses to set the scene of death is this truly magnificent piece of work. I admire the book, and somehow look up to it, as well as Liesel Meminger, the Book Thief.
  5. The Book Thief - Markus Zusak

    Hello, Book Clubbers. I joined this forum yesterday, and made it clear that I was halfway through reading 'The Book Thief' by Markus Zusak. I am thrilled to say that I have just finished this emotional rollercoaster of a book. I must admit, I do not cry often, and the ending of this book brought a tear to my eye. To those of you who have recently, or not so recently, finished this amazingly realistic novel, what did you think of it? I am curious into thinking if other's opinions are similar to my own. Again, I am delighted to have finished this book, and am now in need of a cup of tea to get started on a new book!
  6. Your Ultimate Dream Library

    Oh, I've been fantasizing about my dream library for months.. I'm 14. Oh dear. It would be a large rectangular room with the walls painted a light duck-egg blue colour. There would be dark oak beams across the high ceiling, and the floor would be exactly the same colour oak as the beams. On the left and right walls there would be great long dark oak shelves that nearly touched the beams, and on the wall with the dark oak door, there too would be a long shelf to the corners of the room, that arched over your head as you walked into the room. In the centre of the room, there would be 3 shelves carefully place as close together as possible with just enough room for one person to walk in between the small isles. On the back wall, there would be a small strip of window that ran through the middle of the wall. Above the window would be an encouraging canvas frame that read the words, "Of course I love books more than people!". Then, beneath the window, there would be a charcoal grey sofa, as well as a matching armchair. On the sofa would be 3 orange pillows to contrast against the room, and 1 orange pillow on the armchair. In the middle of the two chairs, there would be a small dark oak coffee table, with orange coasters for my dearly beloved tea that I love to drink whilst reading. Oh my... I shouldnt have done that..
  7. In need of some new book recommendations

    Wow! Thanks for all of the suggestions, guys. I have put all of them onto a reading list that has grown massively since about 2 hours ago. I appreciate your recommendations.
  8. In need of some new book recommendations

    Thank you for answering. I will be sure to put this on my list
  9. Hello all. I am 14, and a very mature reader. Some of my favourite YA books would probably be John Green's 'TFIOS', Rainbow Rowell's 'Fangirl', David Levithan's 'Everyday', Stephenie Meyer's 'Twilight' series, Suzanne Collins' 'The Hunger Games' and so far, Markus Zusak's 'The Book Thief', in which I am halfway through. Though these books are different topics, I am in need for some new YA book recommendations, for after The Book Thief and Looking for Alaska, also by John Green, I will be stuck on what to look for next! I am one for almost all genres, but I take a special interest in realistic books, and some futuristic books such as The Hunger Games, and I have heard that The Maze Runner kind of falls into that genre.. I will be sure to keep an eye out for that one. So please, if you know of any teenage books with great recommendations, please let me know. I don't know if this site is English or not, but I certainly am, and so if you have any book recommendations for me, please let me know if they are being sold in any nearby shops. Thank you. Many thanks, fellow Book Clubbers.
  10. John Green books

    I am 14, and so far I have re-read The Fault in our Stars five times, and Will Grayson Will Grayson twice (David Levithan too is a delightful writer. I love his work), and am yet to read the physical copy of Looking For Alaska that I bought, after I've finished reading The Book Thief. In both books that I've read of his, I think they are truly well-written - the context is perfectly understandable for teens like myself and my friends, who have read TFIOS under my recommendation. I love it. TFIOS is possibly my favourite book ever to read. Enjoy reading your other John Green books.
  11. The Vampire Diaries By L. J. Smith

    I have been addicted to the television series. I find it hard to believe that Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder are in their 30s. That's my chance gone out the window. I have the first 2 books in the series on my Kindle, though I haven't gone that far into them because they are a little hard to get into, so I've been distracting myself with other books.. The television series will always have a place in my heart, though.
