    Bookclub - what are you reading?

    Hi Joyous LOL, the Twilight series huh :P Thought that's more for teenagers (theme wise anyway)? Has she tried the Harry Potter books? I love the books, and I've heard that they are much better written than the Twilight series (which I've not and probably will not read).

    Hi Joyous Dunno if you still check out this thread...I've not been in these forums (SG Brides & SG Motherhood) in ages. I'm glad your daughter enjoys John Bellairs. You can try borrowing from San Bookshop. They have quite a good collection. I usually buy his books rather than...

    Joyous Dunno if this comes too late. For horror for older kids, I would recommend the works of John Bellairs (can find his books in the libraries, Borders and even some San bookshops) He wrote a series of Gothic horror stories set in '60s USA. Very creepy stuff. I started reading his...

    ariesta Yah, Robin Hobb is a chabor. Actually, I think most of her books start off really REALLY slow. You really need to have patience when reading her stuff, but it usually pays off in the end. Not so for her latest series (the Soldier Son trilogy) though...it was still readable, but I...

    ariesta I've nvr read Eddings, but my hb hates his stuff. But my hb loves David Gemmel. He died oredi..did u know? So sad. His last book was completed by his wife I think. Like Bear said, GRRM is quite complex. His cast of characters is very wide, with some supporting characters even...

    Comments on Awfully chocolate and Choc a bloc

    I agree with Bear. Both don't taste good to me. Awfully Chocolate has a weird tasting sponge that's kinda dry, and while Choc-A-Bloc is better, I did not find their cakes rich enuff. I mean if you want good chocolate cake, it has to be rich right, otherwise why eat it? :P Swiss Bake's Choc...

    Bear, think you read too fast liao..hehehe. I liked the whole Hallows part - we had some background on Harry's cloak (I was wondering how no one else seemed to have such a wonderful item); the elder wand also fit in nicely (since Voldy was going after it, thinking that he could only destroy...

    Hi Bear Since you complained that you were talking to yourself, I better write something here :P *Deathly Hallows Spoilers Ahead* I actually loved the last Potter book. It wasn't my favourite (think that honour still goes to HBP & PoA), but I thought that JK Rowling tied up...

    Avid Yes, World Trade centre is the one w Nic Cage..yah man, it was damn boring. For an event that was so horrific, I dunno how Oliver Stone managed to make it so dull and emotionless. I remembered tearing alot at the end of United 93. And that was a movie filled with unknowns. It ran...

    Hi nec I usually rent books...seldom go to the library. Funny thing is..my sis works in NLB..hahaha. Robin Hobb's latest series is not bad, but like most of her other stories, she takes quite awhile to get things moving. But I don't feel that this series is as strong as her previous 2...
