LIFE OF PI by Yann Martel

That just sounds awesome.

Ive got and read the book thief. I think it's a little morbid but very beautiful. Death as a character is personified perfectly. You'll fall in love with him!

Well, I just recently marked off two books from my to buy list (so now on my to read list): "Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman" and
"Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World". Both are by Haruki Murakami. I still need to see about getting his books "Hear the Wind Sing" and "Pinball, 1973".

I've got too many books on my lists to name here, but a few of my friends read Life of Pi and LOVED it. I still have to read that! Bad me! They read it back in high school and I still haven't!

I finished Percy Jackson series like two months ago. Awesome! I loved them, though I will admit the first two books struck me as a little too juvenile at some points, but they were still fun. Plus, they get progressively better, and Percy's snarkiness endeared him to me.

The only book on this book that I have read (so far) is THE BOOK THIEF. I LOVED it. It instantly grabbed a spot on the list of my favorite books EVER.

It's sad and morbid, like Heidi said, but so wonderful!

I own and have read Mists of Avalon. It has been a very long time since I read it, but I do remember it being a good book. It's not as easy to read as HP, more along the lines of Lord of the Rings reading, but a good book.
