Aw, really? They were all lined up all nice in my school library so I just started working my way through them. And that's actually something, because my library has nothing ever.

Well, I lied. SOME are incredibly hard to track down, others are insane prices. Out of printness in Australia.

Some books are hard to find here too. That's why I love my Amazon Kindle. *huggles it* 8D

Ooh, and sorry for the double post, but I thought of another book to add to my list, if anyone's still interested...

Chinese Cinderella, Adeline Yen Mah {It's the true story of the life and experiences of a girl growing up in China during the Second World War, who is considered an unwanted daughter. Her whole family (except her aunt and grandfather) blame her for her mother's death because her mother died shortly after giving birth to Adeline. She is very talented, but usually completely ignored, for this reason. Most of her family, especially her stepmother, put her down and treat her very poorly. It's horrible to think this is a true story, but Adeline manages to rise out of adversity, and is truly an inspiration.}

Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo.
It is an anti-war novel published in 1939 (and was actually banned during certain time periods, if I recall). A definite must-read.

To put it simply, that is the most disturbing and powerful book I've ever read in my life. It has impacted me so greatly: it pulls at your heart and forces an emotional reaction from you. It brings tears to your eyes at some points, makes your blood boil at others, and also brings you to reflect on your own life.

It honestly has changed the very way I look at war and at life.

The Birth House - Ami McKay

I've only started to read this last night, but I haven't been able to put it down. It's about a girl in Nova Scotia who's apprenticing as a midwife during WWI.

I read the Uglies recently. It was pretty good.
I got halfway through Pretties, but then life hit me in the face and I haven't read much since then.

Hmmm. I like Emily the Strange.
