Re: Book Review: Matilda

I’m using Matilda as part of my Book Bingo Challenge! I read your review and I have to agree with you Katelin. I did enjoy the reading (even more this time than the first time I read it), but still I prefer the movie much more. In a way it is expected. It usually happens like that when children book...

So today I finally finished reading the book! And I have to say I’m extremely happy I gave the book a second chance. In my family, my sister is the one who is crazy about Lord of the Rings. She basically forced me to read the books 4 years ago, and while I enjoyed them more than the movies, I still ...

Re: The Fellowship of the Ring: Chapter V — Chapter XII

Tarma, I feel like you read my mind!! Many things that you wrote are also some of the ones I found interesting. First of all, I liked how Frodo was surprised when he found out that the others already knew about the Ring. He was willing to tell everything and cause an impression, when suddenly, it tu...
