    • Ooh, nice list. I’ve only read a handful, but I’ve heard lots of good things about the White Tiger. I think I’ll have to try that one soon. I forgot to put the Great Gatsby on my list–I’ll have to add it, though, because it was beautiful.

      • Regarding, Mr. Gatsby, I hope you are talking about the book, not the nonsensical film that came out, also the White Tiger is a easy enjoyable read!

        • Why of course. The movie can’t give you this quote: “At the enchanted metropolitan twilight I felt a haunting loneliness sometimes, and felt it in others – poor young clerks who loitered in front of windows waiting until it was time for a solitary restaurant dinner – young clerks in the dusk, wasting the most poignant moments of night and life.” And yay, then I’ll look forward to reading it soon!

    • I’ve read Dark Places, but not Sharp Objects. Sharp Objects is on my to-read list (which is about a thousand books long, unfortunately, but I’ll try and get to it before summer’s end). I really like Gillian Flynn’s style, but I liked Gone Girl more than Dark Places, mainly because Dark Places was a little too dark for my tastes. I’m more for psychological thrillers than I am violence and stuff. Which one did you like better?

      • Sharp Objects was the first I read and remain my favorite, but I would say it’s more similar to Dark Places than Gone Girl, so you might still prefer Gone Girl in the end. I can’t believe that all 3 of them are being turned into movies!

        • Hmm, in any case, I’ll have to try it out and find out! Wow, I knew Gone Girl was becoming a movie, but I had no idea that all three were! That’s so surprising. I hope they manage to do a good job with them.

    • Well, actually, when I put the Artemis Fowl books on my favorite list, I really mean books 1-4. I read books 5 and 6, and they were good, but not the stuff of the originals. I’ve yet to read the last, just because the Artemis that I loved seems to be trapped in the first couple of books. But that’s interesting to hear. Are their rumors circulating that Colfer didn’t write the books?
