I'm going to read Abhorsen! It's in my queue of books-to-read. (But I agree, Lirael is better.) Right now I'm re-reading The Golden Compass.

I've never heard of Abhorsen (or Lireal) so I can't comment on that.

I'm in the middle of Bartimaeus 1: The Amulet of Samarkand (I like it so far (especially Bartimaeus's chapters)) and The Princess Bride (one of my favourite books). And tomorrow I'm going to pick up TTFN and Pretties from the library.
The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.

Im currently reading a cool (if slightly odd) nonfiction book called Conversations with God for Teens by Neale Donald Walsch, but I'm about to move onto some awesome books:

Firstly Half Moon Investigations by some random author then fairly soon I'll get round to Lost Colony.

I can't wait!!!

I'm reading Watership Down...'tis so cool!

I have to go read Inkspell soon, apparently it's really good.

Lirael and Abhorsen are the second and third books after Sabriel - by Garth Nix.

I prefered Abhorsen to Lirael, great ending.

I'm re-re-re-re...re-reading the Artemis Fowl series again. I have TLC at last!*glee*
Then I plan to read the Alex Rider series. After that I will read the Narnia books again, then some of the random books I bought in England. And when I've fnished them all (they won't last long Razz), I will borrow Inkspell from the libary. And sometime I will re-read the GOlden Kompass too. Wink

is that the book the new film 'driving lessons' starring Rupert Grint is based on?

Or is it completely different?

I'm Part Way through Half Moon Investigations and its a bit odd (but good) even if the refrences to Ireland (euros, Irish Dance) are beginning to get on my nerves.

I'm reading "Dress Your Family in Courdoroy and Denim" by David Sedaris, but I think I will quit that to read some old favorites (that thread about your favorite books made me nostalgic). I miss Garth Nix's books now too. Mogget was my favorite, so I liked Sabriel the best.

I don't think so. It is different. I'm pretty sure.. unless I'm wrong. Of course. Now I'm reading "The Two Princesses of Bamarre" by Gail Carson Levine.

I'm reading Pendragon by D.J. MacHale...again! And I'm re-reading As You Like it and Julius Ceaser, both by Shakesphere. And I'm kind of reading The Mists of Avalon...I read a lot of books at once. 'Tis great fun!

I am reading "Heaven Eyes" by David Almond. It is emotionally packed and very well written. A good fantasy story.
