I have read three times
I want to reread the whole series, there's just something about this story that is really interesting, and it kind of makes me feel nostalgic...I think I'm just gonna keep rereading these books, I'll never get sick of HP!

15. The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins
I have read once
I want to read again
That was a really great novel and with the movie coming up, it just makes me want to read it again even more! And hopefully the movies aren't like Twilight, hopefully the movie isn't just gonna be a spoof of the book.

17. The World According to Garp - John Irving
I have read once
I want to read again
I thought that was the strangest book when I first read it at the age of 15, but somehow I really want to read it again. I don't know if it's the atmosphere or if I just like rereading books (which I really do) but I'll give it another chance.

18. 10 Things to Do Before I Die - Daniel Ehrenhaft

19. The Way of Shadows: The Night Angel Trilogy:... - Brent Weeks
I have started reading
...and I abandoned it about halfway through to read another book I think. My brother lended this one to me, it was interesting though I can't remember much so I'll have to read it from the start again, and hopefully this time I won't give up on it.

26. And Then There Were None - Agatha Christie
I have read once
Seeing as I read this novel in two days and I stayed up until 3 am to finish it, I guess you can say I appreciated the story. It's very easy to read and the suspense keeps you going.

27. Dead in the Family (Sookie Stackhouse Novels... - Charlaine Harris
I have read once
Well I hope the next one in the series is more exciting because that was strange and uneventful

People who added this item 554  Average listal rating (302 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating
28. The Shining - Stephen King
I have read once
Obviously I have seen the movie and loved it. One of my friends read it and apparently some WTF parts of the movie which are explained in the novel so of course I'm gonna read it. But I won't keep it in the freezer like Joey ;) (and if you know what that meant, ALRIGHT!)

My thougts on the book
The novel is really different from the movie. There were a few really scary moments, but not that much. But what is interesting is seeing the evolution of Jack, which we don't really understand in the movie.

29. The Magician's Nephew (Chronicles of Narnia) - C. S. Lewis
I have read three times
I also want to reread the whole series pretty much for the same reason as Harry Potter, but HP is always gonna be HP, nobody can compete with it. But I have a soft spot for Narnia also.

I have read once
I bought this novel when I was in the Hollywood tower of terror, in Disney World. I really loved the atmosphere of this ride and the spookiness of the 'hotel' so I decided I should get into...the Twilight Zone

My thougths on the book
Having never watched the show, I didn't know what to expect when I would go in....the Twilight Zone. Some stories were interesting, some just plain strange and not even fun to read. Overall worth reading but only once and I'll probably forget all about it pretty soon.

Well I wasn't expecting that! So many prejudices and stereotypes toward the 'Soviets'. I don't think kids should read this Tintin, they might get the wrong idea you know.

45. A Clockwork Orange - Anthony Burgess
I have read once
After you get past the strange nadsat language, it is so AMAZING. WOW great story, it really got interesting to me when Alex went to prison and then it was great. And I have to say I like the novel WAAAYYY more than the film because the portrayal of the characters is not how I had imagined it and they changed the ending, which I loved in the novel.
