I have just finished reading A Thousand Splendid Suns (which I highly recommend btw) and I was wondering on what book to read next?

I like all genres, mainly adventure and romance

Does anybody have any recommendations/suggestions on what to read next?

As well....

What are some of the books that you have read that have changed your life?

What are your favourite books and why?

Do you read the book then the film or the film then the book?

Do you have a library card? If so go to your local library and ask for recommendations. Or try Amazon. Your local bookstore should also have romance novels too. To answer your question it depends.

I absolutely would love to read The Kite Runner! I am planning on getting it for my mum for Christmas cause she wants to read it also. Have you read A Thousand Splendid Suns? The author rights beautifully I find.

No I don’t have a library card but I do frequently go to our local book shop, Waterstones. Whenever I go into town I go there, Superdrug and Costa😂

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. There is also a film adaptation of the same name based on the novel. We read it in class once and then watched the movie.

so lunar chronicles (from my best friends Google and wikipedia but in my own words) : " Each book entails a sci-fi twist on an old fairy tale that you've probably heard a million times since you were born with twists and turns, there are 4 books in the series - there is both adventure and romance ; currently like all the ships in the series they are so cute and the concept of found family"

renegades : "young adult dystopian trilogy way better than Divergent {sorry but hunger games > divergent series} , focusing on teenagers with superpowers with an Adrien and Queen Bee not to be mistaken with Miraculous Ladybug"

Personally I really like her writing !!!

to an extent YES but to another extent NO

I loved how Efiie was in District 13 in Mockingjay
Why would you remove representation for disabilities like give one legged people both Hiccup from how to train your dragon film triology and Peeta Mellark ?
Gale stans were annoying before movie came out and become more annoying afterwards :rolleyes:
I like how the movies showed protest after Rue's death, breaking of the damn in district 7, snow and gamemakers perspective
OMG the CGI fire in the first movie though
Why would remove Madge giving Katniss the badge originally to show there is even differences in wealth in a single district other than districts vs capitol ?
Didn't they change the colour/cat playing Buttercup between catching fire and mockingjay lol
