Booking Through Thursday -- 5/21


What book would you love to be able to read again for the first time?
(Interestingly, I thought that I had thought this one up myself, but when I started scrolling through the Suggestions, found that Rebecca had suggested almost exactly this question a couple months ago. So, we both get credit!)

I would like to read The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman again for the first time. I devoured the novel on the first read. I loved every page of the adventure that stretched out before me. Lucky, it was the first book of a series so when it ended I still had two more books to go. Still, I would love to read the whole series for the first time again and feel that sense of wonder.

How about you? (Want to play along? Go to Booking Through Thursday.)

I really loved this book, but have yet to read the rest of the series. I'm sure I'll get to it eventually! The movie was not so good though. What was with them leaving out the whole ending!?

I have never read this! I might give it a try, although I have seen how thick it is...it would probably take me years to read it. LOL

Books that have surprise ending or a twist would be refreshing to me. I also read my favorite books, like Name of the Rose and The Master and Margarita.

I loved this book! Someone lent it to me, and then I went out and bought the boxset for myself, because I was sure I'd love to re-read it!

I have not read this and I don't really know if I have the desire to. Sounds pretty good though. I have not watched the movie either.

Didn't think of The Golden Compass but that is a great choice. Love the Dark Materials trilogy! Thanks for the reminder.
