Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 16

Favorite female character… This may be harder than favorite male character… Well, I think I’ll go with… Thursday Next (from Jasper Fforde’s Thursday Next series.) She is such a dynamic character. She changes throughout the series, sometimes in little ways, and sometimes in huge ways that in other books would be unbelievable. Not this series though, somehow it all makes sense… Continue reading Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 16

Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 15

Favorite male character… Hmm so hard… I would have to say, Sherlock Holmes I’ve read most of the original stories, and many spin offs. His character is something I find interesting and intriguing. I’m sure once I post this, I’ll think of a million other characters that would fit the bill, but oh well, that’s a reader for you! Continue reading Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 15

Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 14

Book turned movie, and completely desecrated…. Oh, this is fun… So many to choose from…. The one that popped into my head as soon as I read the Challenge was… Cassandra Clare’s City of Bones (Mortal Instruments). I’d read the series, and liked it, so I thought, why not watch the movie?

Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 13

Your favorite writer… I really have to pick just one?! I’m not sure I can do that. Hmm, if I had to pick just one, I’d have to say Neil Gaiman. He has this ability to tell a story that people already know, in a way that makes it completely new. If you’ve never read any of his books, what are you waiting for, really? I would also recommend that you listen to at least one of his audiobooks, one that he narrates himself. It truly is a magical experience. Continue reading Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 13

Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 12

A book you love, but hate at the same time… Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury Obviously this is a classic that is on most must read lists. It’s very well written and that is one of the reasons that I love this book. However, just the premises of not being able to read books really gets my hackles up. So that is why I pick this book for this Challenge. Be careful how much control you let others have over you/society… (Read Banned Books) Continue reading Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 12
