List started on 12/17/09:
1. My Booky Wook by Russell Brand - It was okay. Not my favorite autobio but not my least favorite. It kind of dragged in some instances, but I guess that's how life typically is.
2. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl - Cute kids book. I love the movie (the Gene Wilder one) but never read the book so yeah, it was good.
3. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis - So I've never read this book or seen this movie before but I've heard good things so I read it and I liked it. I thought it was going to be longer but it was very simple and to the point which for its readers (kids young and old) fits. I liked it and I plan on reading the rest of the books and I'm tivo'ing the movie that's coming on this weekend, haha.
4. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton - It had a slow start but was an okay book. Not many books about greasers and "socs" anymore, that's for sure, so itt wasn't something I usually read. Pretty good though.
5. Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen - It wasn't what I was expecting, I was expecting to be more of a story or even journey but it was just very kind of scattered thoughts and random stories from her experience. It was good, but I actually think I preferred the movie.
6. The Giver by Lois Lowry - I actually really liked this book. I picked it up not knowing what it was about but it was very Brave New World-y but I kind of liked it better. I just wish the ending could be more solid but other than that I liked it and the whole idea of it. How much we take all these memories we have for granted and yet if they ever disappeared we would be living in a very boring world.
