I hate when I pick up a book and think that it's going to be really good, but get super bored of it before the middle. I wind up finishing it anyway, just to see if it'll get better, but it rarely does. :/

Almost never. The same thing happens to me.

If your talking about Gone by michael grant I don't understand how you can be bored. That book has so much action in it. Also has anyone seen this new book called The Ghost and the Goth? I saw it the other day in the book store and it looked like a humorous read.

IKR! I really considered buying it when i saw it. The cover was one of the best I'd seen in a while too. It's all bright and eye-catching.

No! It's about this really popular girl that dies and becomes a ghost and will dissapear unless she can get someone to notice her spirit, and the only one who can see her is this goth boy from her old school who is being bothered by other spirits so they have to try and get along and help each other.

Yeah, that book was amazing. I'm reading another book by that author for my book project right now.
You read Marcelo in the Real World?

Where I am in it, it's sad that his Dad yells at him for talking in third person and doesn't believe in the music marcelo hears. I'm only on page 25 or so though.

Oh. The end is kind of strange I think. May be thinking of a different book though. A REALLY sad book was Crosses by Shelley Stoehr (I think that's how you spell it) It is definitely not appropriate in any way shape or form, but this book made my cry (and that is saying something.)
