When he sings, he makes me melt like a Popsicle on the Fourth of July

Just got these 5 movies from mail but I can't watch them today cause I'm not gonna be home tonight. Sucks! And these movies aren't kind of any happy happy joy joy but I guess I like it like that.

And my big question for you is that you have to recommend some good books for me. I like pretty sad and dramatic books, I like Torey Hayden's books, the Virgin Suicides, Nancy. I just got Lolita and The Cement Garden. So tell me your favourite book that you think I might like.

    Kannattaa ehdottomasti lukea J.D. Salingerin Sieppari ruispellossa, vielä enemmän tosin suosittelen Alice Seboldin Omaa taivasta, ellet ole sitä vielä lukenut. :)

    Lukaseppa toi Fight Club ja Trainspotting kirjoina, monin verroin parempia molemmat kirjoina, vaikka leffatkin ovat täyden kympin arvoisia. Orwellin 1984 menis varmaan myös. Beatnikkien kirjojakin kannattaa lukea, Kerouaccia ja Burroughsia esimerkiksi.

  14. jenny downham - before i die

    it's a great & authentic book. when i read it made me cry.
    i think you'll like it, it's quit dramatic.

  15. The above mentioned "The Bell Jar", "The Catcher In the Rye" and "White Oleander" might suit your wish, I have "Revolutionary Road" by Richard Yates on my night stand at the moment and I love it. It's a good read for people in a serious relationship but why not for singles, too.

  21. Hi Rosa-Fiona:) If your looking for some good books I can only recommend you to read Jane Austen. Seriously. Her books are classic but still dramatic and romantic. Just everything you might like. I'm so into Jane Austens books <3 You should def. have read one of her books in your life and I'm sure you'll love.

    I LOVE FIGHT CLUB. but the movie just adapted the story from the novel 'fight club' by chuck palahniuk. and the book is soooo much better than the movie.
    or read jane austen's books. there you have romantic and happy ends but a little bit drama,too.
    the reader by bernhard schlink is my favourite book. when I read it,i couldn't stop crying :(

    Toi Trainspotting on kyllä ihan törkeen hyvä kirjana! Se elokuva on toki hyvä, mutta... oksettavia, kuvottavia, etovia kohtia löytyy ihan liikaa ainakin mun omaan makuun. Tuskin ihan kaikki välttämättä haluaa niitä NÄHDÄ omin silmin, if you know what I mean... Lämpimästi suosittelen kirjaa :-)! Ja englannin kielisenä versiona.

    Vampyyrin palvelija (S.E. Hinton) · Kertoo mielisairaalaan joutuneesta ex-merenkulkijasta ja rötöstelijästä, jonka elämä muuttui yhdessä vaiheessa aika radikaalisti. Ei mitään Twilight-soopaa, vaan kunnon kirja. Loppukin aivan täydellinen.
