A little break…
So I’ve decided to write an entry every night…at least I’m going to try to. I’ve finished the bulk of my studying and I’m just reviewing my notes right now.
I don’t know if I have mentioned this before, but I am a huge fan of fantasy, adventure novels. Anything that has some sort of escape from reality. I’m not sure when or how I got the idea to read this book, but I read it and I loved it. It’s The Circle Trilogy by Ted Dekker. He’s an amazing author and this story is so different from anything I’ve ever read before. I know that there are a lot of books that fit that category, so I guess that this will be another one of those. It’s heavily based on Christianity just like The Chronicles of Narnia. If you are not a huge fan of those kinds of books, I believe that you will still really like it. It’s fast paced from the beginning. It’s quite interesting how he writes this book and I would really love a movie made based on this book. If they make a movie out of it, I hope that its execution will be as good as Lord of the Rings. Peter Jackson did a awesome job with those films. A video game based on these books would also be interesting.
So now that I’ve finished reading those books, I found it hard to find another good novel to read. I was browsing in the book/dvd section in the store the other day and I came across The Time Traveler’s Wife. I completely forgot about that book. I’ve read good things about the movie so I assumed that the book should be better. They almost always are. (I mean look at what they did to Eragon, Golden Compass and Twilight…Need I say more?) I was glad to see that The Time Traveler’s Wife got a 7.2 on IMDB. I quickly nabbed the book and I’m planning on reading it next week.
Also, two quick things about what I’m wanting to get. I was searching around the internet yesterday and I found three highly rated books:
Vellum: The Book of All Hours by Hal Duncan
House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski
Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
I know that these books are not new and they have been best sellers for a while, but I just thought that I would share this with you guys. If anyone has any suggestions to what I should read, based on what I love to read, feel free to comment!
