Okay okay okay... I haven't really been active have I? Well I felt like talking to you guys about books! Yeah I am a book worm and I am proud of that. And most of my books nowadays that i read are these BIG, FAT, and LONG books that are 1-3 inches big in thickness. Very hard to carry now that the school year has begun... SCHOOL! > < I don't like it either, but actually i am very terrified... upperclassmen scare me a lot, teachers, even rejection of my little groupie. Yeah. So back to my topic: Books.

What books do you guys read? I mean there's always that infamous "Twilight" series. But honestly Twilighters, I don't like it. I never read it, but because of the popularity and my allergicness to popularity, I guess I don't feel like it's my type. I really don't know why, maybe it's because of all the "Bite-Me, Edward!" claims I've heard so many times, or maybe it's all those t-shirts, keychains, and all the products!!! (Seriously my teacher bought shoes with the Twilight logo on it... )

So I am a hard cookie to eat upon book reading, I read Dragons in Our Midst and it's Sequel series, Oracles Of Fire. But OoF (Oracles of Fire) pretty much continuing the story into a deeper story for everyone. Bryan Davis is the author of this mind bending series. If anyone likes the Arthur legends and stories, Dragons, amazing plot lines, and just pure fun I recommend! Yupperz!

I also read from the bookshelves of Mr. Wayne Thomas Batson. He wrote the double series of Isle of Swords and it's sequel of Isle of Fire. Amazing! If anyone likes pirates (which I have a really great fond of actually), adventures, and good guys beating up the bad guys and a cliff hanger (Isle of Swords is the first book!), you're in for quite a ride.

I was going to list all of it like those before but I'll just list them in bullets with the reason they're awesome!!!)

~Echoes from the Edge series (Mr. Bryan Davis once again! + Amazing story for thinkers and music lovers! It's so twisted at times that it's scary. There are 3 books and is complete! :)

~DIOM (Dragons in Our Midst) and Oof (Oracles of Fire) Bryan Davis + The best and life enlightening story of love, life, and amazing adventure. It will send you through all the realms of Earth, Hades, Heaven and in between! There are 8 books in total and all are on sale online (search Bryan Davis) and in all the Family Christian stores.

~Isle series, Wayne Thomas Batson + Pirates is all I can say. :)

~The Door Within Series, Wayne Thomas Batson + Okay this is so sweet!!! > < It's a realm reeeeeeliing story! It's like the redemption story, the resurrection, and revelation! The three R's!! Amazing!

Well that's all for now folks! And a bonus to tell you guys, it's family friendly and they are GOOD books. If they can make me cry... (well I cry easily) and make me rethink things and get me thinking straight they are pretty well written.

Never Alone,

As one Christian to another, I'd definitely say that there is wisdom in NOT reading Twilight. I must say, though, angelmew, that is quite an...um....extensive list of reading that you've accumulated.

Well, a few weeks ago, I finished reading When God Writes Your Love Story and I'm currently reading Holiness: The Heart God Purifies by Nancy Leigh DeMoss. I'd definitely recommend both of them.

The world is flat. Fascinating read about how the playing field is being leveled for Americans, Indians, Chinese and much of the rest of the world. I highly recommend it. Though not necessarily a christian author, I still highly recommend the book.

I read most/all of the left behind books. All are fascinating as a possible end times scenario. Some things may happen, others probably won't. Chronicles of Narnia are good. I also enjoyed the magic bicycle series in middle school. The Dragon king saga was an interesting read, though frustrating to read as an assignment in class. The screwtape letters were interesting for sure.

I've heard that there are a lot of very good Christian Authors out there if you just look for them.

Yup clearwater-san! If you look for them many will pop up. I'm saving up for a new book, it's manga and it reads the old testament, they're making the new testament after! Hahahaha it was so cute when Isaac met his wife! (I loved how they drew them!) Yup.
