The Wind Singer is about the journey of Kestrel Hath and her twin brother Bowman (well, there is a classmate tag-along too.) They live in the city of Aramanth, where the system of life is 'everything must be in order.' To save their family, the twins leave the city to find the key to the wind singer, a long-defunct device in the city's center. It was once the source of happiness and harmony in Aramanth, but the key was given to an evil spirit-lord [the Morah] in exchange for the Morah's calling off its terrible army of Zars.
The Samurai's Garden and Memoir of a Geisha are both based in Japan. The Samurai's Garden: On the eve of the Second World War, a young Chinese man is sent to his family's summer home in Japan to recover from tuberculosis. He will rest, swim, and paint. But he meets four local residents-- a beautiful Japanese girl and three older people. Young Stephen has his own adventure, but it is the unfolding story of Matsu, Sachi, and Kenzo that seizes your attention. Memoir of a Geisha: We enter a world where appearances are paramount; a girl's virginity is auctioned to the highest bidder; where women are trained to beguile the most powerful men; and where love is scorned as illusion. It's about a young girl being taken away from her parents and becoming a Geisha, striving to get the attention of the Chairman. :DD Just read the story. e.e
The Hobbit: There and Back Again is one of my favorite books ^^ and most of you have probably heard of it.. I hope. o.o The prelude to Tolkien's Lord of the Rings series, yes? It's all about Bilbo Baggins' adventure through the Western world. You'll learn about trolls, goblins, dwarves, and elves, and get some glimpses into the history and politics of a neglected but important period.
Ah.. Harry Potter. o.o;; Yeah, a lotta you are probably laughing and what not, but those books really get me reading nonstop. ^^ I like the sense that there is another world/way of life combined with the regular, normal one of ours. If it were real, I would rather go to Hogwarts than that public school I'm going to right now, wouldn't you? It would be interesting stuff to learn rather than math x_x My favorite book so far is probably the third one, Prisoner of Azkaban, because I like Sirius Black a lot. >) I think Hari Pota art is cute too. Yeah, the Japanese style ones. o.o They look like Digi Charat. ^o^
