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….

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
