    All of a sudden, I feel very young. LOL.

    I was in elementary school when Harry Potter came out. o.o I haven't read a single one of the books.

    @anatess, I think a lot of Star Wars fans still wish there were only 3 movies....

    I too am sad about Harry Potter. More so the books than the movies, so I felt more of a let down when I finished reading The Deathly Hallows. Although I have a whole list of books I want to start reading now that I am at the end of my grad career. I cannot wait to start reading "real" books again....so tired of journal articles!

    I am planning to start with the George R.R. Martin series (Fire & Ice?) that starts with the Game of Thrones. I have also heard that the Hunger Games series is really good. Does anyone know about that?

    Thanks so much for the offer, you're too kind! I researched on amazon how much they were and the collection isn't too expensive. Actually it was cheaper than I thought so I'll probably get it before Christmas.

    As much as I'd like to say Team Eric, deep down I think I'm Team Bill. Alcide's great too but I don't like how he's treating his current gf. C'mon, if you don't love her then stop dragging her along!

    I know I've mentioned this somewhere before but has anyone tried Patricia Cornwells Scarpetta seriese...I found them addictive and have read the whole seriese. some let downs here anfd there where I think the author had a silly moment but very good reads that have individual stories to the book but a constant story of the characters lives running throughout the seriese that keeps you hooked.
    May be worth a read if you like Crime/Thriller books
    If you like easy summer reads to make you laugh Sophie Kinsella Shopaholics books are very funny.

    Books from ages ago that had me hooked were the tolkein books Lord of the Rings seriese and The Hobbit. and Virginia Andrews Flowers in the Atic etc...I was 14 when I read them and so disappointed when the movie came out.

    You didn't like the Lord of the Rings movies? I loved them! I cried more to them than the HP series. haha. The action scenes just catch you off-guard and makes you feel like you can conquer anything. The soundtrack is so powerful and captivating too. My bf and I are always discussing that we should have a LoR movie marathon one day.

    I tried and failed at reading the novels. They were filled with so much detail that my mind was so exhausted after every page.

    Sorry bad grammer again I meant the Flowers in the Atic movie was poor compared to the book.

    Oh yes the LotR Movies were and are amazing we do the marathon often, and I still have to leave the room when Arwen is growing weak The best bit is that the movies did the books justice...but maybe thats because it had been years between me reading them and watching the movies that I had forgotten details. I read it at 13 and was instantly hooked but have since tried and found it too difficult to read. The adult mind is not as easily manipulated into belief.

    Speaking of LOTR... I love it! But, man, I couldn't re-read the books. It's just too rich. Yeah, kinda like eating pure chocolate.

    But, the Drizzt stories... now those are awesome! It's written like LOTR with great adventures and multiple realms but with a more average-reader-appeal literary style. I'm still amazed that nobody has made movies out of Drizzt. Or even any really good mega-production movies out of the Dungeons and Dragons world. The 2 D&D movies that came out were a joke! When you got LOTR and Harry Potter and even idiotic-Twilight making big movies and succeeding, it's a wonder how both D&D movies were so under-achieved that they sucked so bad. I guess it's a good thing they didn't make a Drizzt movie. I would cry if they would put a half-brained movie out of this hero. Kinda like Percy Jackson - what were they thinking???

    Anyway, if you're looking for a LOTR-kinda series, pick up the stories of the dark elf Drizzt Do'Urden starting from Homeland, Exile, then Sojourn. And then move on to when he banded with a dwarf, a barbarian, and a halfling on some quests...

    I am Team Eric. But I also like Alcide. Read the books, it changed my mind from Bill to Eric.

    Loved the Hunger Games series. A very easy read. Loved it. I have to admit, I loved the first book the most.

    I wonder if the movies are going to be good. Don't know what the books are about, but as long as the storylines are good and there's some eyecandy then the movies should be epic.
