Book Tag

Here's another tag. This one's easier than the last. Here are the rules to the tag:

1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next five sentences.
5. Tag five people

The book I just finished last night is called Uglies. It's a young adult science fiction about a futuristic land where everyone has surgery to make them beautiful when they turn 16. I would not normally read science fiction, but it was recommended by a friend. I can't say if I would recommend it or not. I'm still undecided. I'll wait until I read the second and third books in the series to say. So here goes:

"The thought of what she must look like was too much. Tally collapsed onto the bed, covering her face with her hands and sobbing. Peris sat next to her and held her for a while as she cried, then wiped her nose and sat her up. "Look at you, Tally Youngblood."

She shook her head."

Not very exciting. Okay, I tag anyone who reads this, except Kate since she's the one who tagged me. This one's fun and easy to do so I don't feel bad.

I've wanted to read that series. So should I or shouldn't I??

I don't know yet. It's very entertaining and easy reading, but I'm not sure how much I like it yet. It's one of those that you have to read the whole series to get the whole story.

I've read all three. I really liked the first one, couldn't wait to get the second. Pretties was fairly good, worth reading. But I really didn't like the third one,Specials,mainly because of the ending. The author got a little preachy environmentalist on us.

I just finished the third one and I have to agree, I didn't like the ending at all. The whole series was very entertaining, but I was waiting for some great ending to tie it all up. But then I got to the ending and I felt almost cheated.
