Jus-Anne Boleyn is my favorite of the wives. She's so fierce; I love her. If I can be half as fierce and strong as she was, I will be content hehe.

Dear Arwen Evenstar,
The book 'The Concubine' contained, of course, a great deal of fiction, but it did coincide, in substance, with other things I've read about Anne Boleyn. Mostly, though, I think it's not such a great idea to marry a 'king'. ;) - jus'

Pixie - To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my all-time favorite novels! Smile I would legitimately name my firstborn daughter Harper Lee if I could get my husband to agree to it.

Pixie, To Kill a Mockingbird is fantastic! Scout's one of my favorite characters.

And Jus-yea, marrying Henry didn't work out too well for poor Anna Regina.

Dear elena532,
I watched the movie One Flew Over the CucKoo's Nest long ago. I've never read the book. Please let me know if you think it's worth reading it, and also if you've seen the movie with Jack Nickleson. It's nice to see you back here again. - jus'

Dear Forever,
I see that there's a 1973 movie based on that book. In English they've called it "The Peasants". And there is 1 customer review written about it (which I clicked on) that seems to be a pretty good report on that movie/ This site says that the book is considered a classic in Poland. Here's the link. - jus'

Jus, "Anna Regina" is Latin for "Queen Anne". I was referring to Anne Boleyn, sorry for not making that clear. My head is chock full of weird facts like that.

I'm currently re-reading the Harry Potter series. Good times.

Forever-re-reading the HP series and LoTR series is my summer thing too. I'm going to bawl at the last two movies, especially the King's Cross scene.

Jus-awww, even the Lord of the Rings series? Although that's more fantasy/fairy tale than "occult" I suppose. I think it's brilliant how Tolkien combined the Norse/Celtic myths, Arthurian legends, and his Christian beliefs into one mytharc. The man was a genius and I think it's so sweet that he created the character of Luthien Tinuviel from his wife.

Their headstones even say "Luthien" and "Beren". That's so heartbreakingly beautiful. For non-Tolkien fans, Luthien is the foremother of Arwen Evenstar and the first Elven Princess to give up her immortality and eventually die to marry a human Prince. It's a bittersweet tale about star-crossed lovers and it's one of my favorites in "The Silmarillion".

Favourite authors:

Nyx, I have read Watership Down tons of times - first read it in 5th grade and still have it somewhere....John Adams also wrote "Plague Dogs" - similar idea, dogs <which I love> as main characters-

have also really enjoyed King, Koontz and Crichton and did like a couple of the "Goosebumps" I read
