#43 Player One-What is to become of us by Douglas Coupland

This book fascinated me and I couldn't put it down. Yet...I can't decide if I LIKED it. I think it might make a really good movie.
To describe it, roughly, I would say that it revolves, mostly, around 4 people coincidentally joined in an airport lounge on any other day for whatever reason has brought them there. Today is the day oil prices skyrockets and the end of the world begins, though. It's a story of personal interactions and emotions and survival but not really a survival story. It's kind of difficult to describe. Maybe its more difficult since I can't, honestly, decide if I liked it. I dunno. Maybe you should read it so we can talk it out. I'm not gonna encourage you more than that, though.

#42 Fools for Love by Eloisa James

I like the author. The book was kinda indifferent. I'm in the mood for something GREAT but am at a loss for what that might be. I read this book and Gossip Girl #7 days ago but was so indifferent that I didn't bother updating this blog. Meh.

#41 "GG" Nobody Does it Better by Cecily von Ziegesar

number 7 was just like the other ones. I'm gonna read all available but I am now bored with them.

#39 Bram Stoker's Dracula

Sitting at the Dr's office for 3 hours gave me lots of time to read. I made it through half of the book during that time alone.
I liked the book. It wasn't new to me, though. The Gary Oldman, Winona Ryder, Keanu Reeves version of the movie was remarkably close...from what I could remember of the movie anyways. At any rate, I'm pleased that I took the time to read it.

#38 Animal Farm by George Orwell

BRILLIANT! This story is so witty and cunning and BLATANT that it completely tickled me. I have, of course, heard of it but had never read the book. Zakk had to read it for a class. He made a comment about not liking the end. He let me read it when he found out I hadn't. I loved it. Loved it!

#37 "GG" I Like it Like That by Cecily von Ziegesar

fun. :) I want more. I guess it's back to the library tomorrow.

#36 "GG" Because I'm Worth It by Cecily von Ziegesar

They're still good and I have one more here at home...but I realized in this book that I don't like one single character. I don't think you're supposed to but I really don't.
