On my trip to Florida last week I decided that I didn't want to "exert" my mind anymore than I had to before classes start again, so I purposely made my reading list ridiculously light...as in strictly young adult fantasy , which has always been my weakness. I finished His Dark Materials on the drive there, and while I really enjoyed the first two books, it got downright amazing towards the end of The Amber Spyglass. Never in my life have I wanted two book characters to be together more than Will and Lyra...until I started my next read, (well sort of next read, I finished off what CS Lewis I had left first) Twilight. Oh. My. God. I read the entire thing in two days (which is impressive for me, a child of ADD), and I had to make an emergency stop at a bookstore to pick up the next books in the series as soon as I finished. I really thought I was over falling for literary figures, but Edward Cullen has claimed my heart. This is getting ridiculous...but seriously, amazingly addictive.

Thank God I'm taking two literature classes next semester so I don't feel like I'm completely rotting my brain away between all of the fantasy novels and science fiction television I'm indulging in...otherwise I might end up more of a nerd than I already am...haha, not possible.

i read his dark materials when i was really young, and didn't read it too well then

reread it the summer before the movie came out, and loveddddd it again. (not really the second book in the trilogy, but the third is phenomenal! the first is also really good too) true what you said about will and lyra.

i was really disappointed in the movie. literally right when it ended, me and another guy in the theater made audible "UGGGGGGH" noises and "that's not how it ends!"

Yeah, I've never been more disappointed in a movie adaptation than The Golden Compass...with the possible exception of Prisoner of Azkaban, but my hopes were too high with that one.
