I looked back through the entries to make sure that I wouldn't be repeating anybody. I'd like to share a couple titles that I enjoyed.
1) "Wit'ch Fire" by James Clemens (I might have spelled his last name wrong) - It's pretty dark, and has a lot of blood and violence in it. But it's fast paced and it really kept my attention. I read through it in only a couple days, where as a lot of times I'll end up not getting through a book for a week or more. It's about a young teen girl who ends up being the wit'ch of an ancient prophecy. The party that gathers with her is certainly a motley crew, but they all have distinct personalities and are quite likable. I'm very much looking forward to the second book in the series.
2) "Inkheart" by Cornelia Funke - This book is aimed more at the target crowd of Harry Potter, but I'd say it's a good read for adults, too. It's another book I went through in only a couple days' time. It's about a 12 year old girl whose father has a special talent for "reading characters out of books" when he reads out loud. It just so happened that he read the villian of a book out into the real world, and that villian wants her father to read out several of his other... companions. Like with the first book I mentioned, I'm looking forward to book two of this series, as well!
I hope to be hearing about some more good stories from you guys soon! Take care!
