I'll pick adventure over love anyday.

Well, lately I've been reading a lot of children fantasy books. Yeah I know right? Ain't that just dandy? It is! It all started with my fascination with Harry Pot-er and Hogwarts (da best school yo). And I rarely even read chic-lit, I don't even know why. Probably because, in my opinion, they're all the same. There's a confused chick, guys and love. So that's why I read very little chic-lit, heck I've only read two or three. And I must confess A Walk to Remember is <3>

(Wooh I have this cover which is the First US Edition D: )

Ok back to the main topic, Children Fantasy Books :B They're awesome. I've read this Trilogy called Dark Reflection (The Water Mirror, The Stone Light, The Glass Word). The ending was extremely sad, I wished the author re-write the ending but like the book said, this is not a fairytale and even in fairytales it isn't real. Yeah sighh... but it's really unique, original and one of the most imaginative book I've read. And the best part it is set in Venice, and all over the world, but it started in Venice! I really want to go there.

Then there's Darren Shan the half-vampire. He was a normal boy, but one grave mistake made him a half-vamp. And so he goes through many adventures being all vampire, and kind of animal-like. You can finish a book in a day. It's a nice light reading material and very addictive. Well I'm addicted. I just love the first book! A very nice way to start a story, very unexpected and the plotline was great! Gosh I'm sounding geek-ish but I don't give a hoo-haa.

Adding to the list is, Percy Jackson! Thanks to my friend she bought the second and third book (first book, sold out) and instantly I got hook! Percy and Tyson is really funny. And I love Nico di Angelo heehheeee. I don't know why, he is an interesting character and he changes throughout the series. And thanks to the series, I'm googling ancient monsters, greek mythology and the olympians. I have literally become a Percy Jackson fan. Even when I have midterms, I kept reading The Last Olympian and I bet my marks would suffer. But the book was just calling me and saying "Read me, read me!!" How can I resist? I'm not that strong!

I hate it when series end. I cried when Pot-er ended. I know LAME but how would you feel when the book you grew up with finished and every year you patiently wait for the next book to come out and now you have nothing to wait for :( I wish they could magically just continue but I know that would just make it a disaster.

Kai Meyer is one of my favourite authors. I don't know how many books of him are translated into English, but they are all worth reading! :)
Oh and the end is really, really sad, I know. :(
