I was given book 1 of The Hunger Games for my birthday. I've heard good things about it and I look forward to reading it. Now I don't have to borrow it from my niece. :D


I loved the trilogy! It kept me riveted and I could not wait to get my hands on the next installment as soon as I finished a book.

Quote JaneDoe: Took forever to find this thread! 8)

I decided to start reading Jane Austen's "Emma" this weekend, I've seen the movie and it was a free Kindle book so I dove in. It never even occurred to me after seeing the movie and never having seen it mentioned before that the 1990's movie Clueless was loosely based on this book until I was reading it! Talk about being clueless 8) .... that's one of my all time favorite movies. What an AHA moment. 3)



Oh Jane Austen books are in my "que" to read also. I've never seen the movies "Emma", "Pride and Prejudice" and "Sense & Sensability". I've always wanted to read the books first. I'm horrible about reading a chapter or two and then looking to see if a different books catches my interest quicker. I must have 25 books where I've read the first chapter. LOL

Glad you found this thread though. We had some really great discussions in here.

One author I'm loving right now is Suzanne Enoch. Of course I'm really partial to Historical romances and rarely stray from them.

So Clueless is based on Emma...hmmm it should be a fun read then. Maybe I'll start that this week.


Pride and Prejudice is my favorite book! It's the only Jane Austen I've read (multiple times too). I'm still reading Emma now, but it will take a while to finish. I'll probably continue reading it during breaks from other books since I've seen the movie and I know I can pick up where I left off easily. I've also seen a mini series on Sense and Sensibility, but I'm not as interested in reading that book. Right now I'm more interested in the new book I just received! ;)

Have you read my Julia Quinn Series? It's an easy read, you could probably read all 10 books in a month.

Did you get it? I downloaded a few more Jane Austen books last night. You got me thinking about them. Mansfield Park and Northanger Abbey. I think I've seen movies or mini series on these two but I'm a glutton for books. 3)

No I haven't and I was off for 4 weeks but was working on my masterpiece instead. They're still in the box and I was looking at the box going now would be a good time to read these. LOL

Just finished "Where We Belong" by Emily Giffin. GREAT book!

alikat - I've made it through 1/2 of "Naked Heat". It's good, just like an episode of Castle! :D

Awesome. I just got the new "short" of the Derrick Storm series.

I'm looking into buying the hardcover Nikki Heat series for my dad and his wife. (They refuse to read digital).

I'm in the middle of a series right now and after that I'll most likely start the Nikki Heat series. There are 4 of them out now.

One day I'll study to find out how exactly all of this "series and tv show" came about because the author is listed as Richard Castle and on the show when he has his poker games, I'm pretty sure those are the real authors like James Patterson, etc... So I'm wondering if "Richard Castle" is actually a pseudonym and one of those playing poker is actually Castle.

Either way, the show is fantastic so I'm glad the books are too.

I'm wondering who the real Richard Castle is too. I like how they keep the author in character with the show..... but we all know that a fictional character isn't really writing these books. 8) Maybe one day we'll have the answer, but I like your theory!
