For any of my fellow Dr Who, Star Trek, gamer fans "ready player one" is fantastic!

So who knows, I may get more into it as I get deeper into the series!

Just looked up The Passage and OMG I'm totally reading that now!

I also read the first Divergent book and it was okay! Gonna read the others at some point!
I thought the same of the hunger games and yet I reread as well!

I haven't started the Divergent series but its on my list, I have a lot to read in the passage still but I'm loving it.

I don't like it as much so far but we'll see.
I've not seen the movie but I've read all the books except for the last one. It's a fun series but the main characters too whiny that drives me crazy.

Good Omens is one of my all time favorite books.
Same here! I recently decided to start working my way through some of the other Pratchett and Gaiman books; I'm reading American Gods right now. I'm curious to see which author I like better, since Good Omens is the only thing I've read from either. The friend who got me hooked on Good Omens praises Pratchett more, but just flipping through their books, Gaiman's appealed to me more.

My friend got it for me for Christmas a couple of years ago, and I stared at it for weeks thinking "I'm not going to like this" before finally picking it up. I wound up digging through it far faster than I expected. I didn't realize it was a trilogy until recently; I think I'm going to have to re-read the first before I pick up the next. I remember certain scenes from it vividly, but not everything.

Of all the big teen series recently, I do think this is one of the best written and most interesting. Less "teen angst love triangle". I was really excited to read the second, but it downloaded funny to my Nook (pages were all out of order) and I got sick of trying to piece things together. I should just go pick up a copy of it now that I've been reminded.

Just read "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children". It was pretty okay for reading fodder but it wasn't as interesting as I'd hoped.

Oh and yes Hunger Games...I've reread that series so many times. I wanted more than three books!

I'm re-reading the Harry Potter series for like the billionth time.
Currently on Chamber of Secrets.

After this... I will be re-reading the Hunger Games series and the Divergent series to prepare myself for the movies/new book. Yay!

I finally sat down and finished "The Bride Collector" by Ted Dekker. I liked it, ending was a little on the predictable side, but I find that in most "mass market" type novels these days.

I just started into Game of Thrones. I've been enjoying the HBO series and wanted to read through the books now. I have some vacation time coming up and like to have something I can sit on the deck and ready while I enjoy a big fat stogie
