Today’s topic on the 30 Day Blog Journal is my favorite book. That is going to be difficult because, I love literature more than movies and music put together. I read CONSTANTLY. I don’t just read, either, I re-read my books. I have repurchased books because I’ve worn them out reading and re-reading them and still just am not done. I have favorite series’ and favorite authors and favorite genres all of which change with my mood and change my mood. Yes, I’m one of those freaky book people who gets genuinely absorbed into the fantasy world of literature, if the writing’s right. This is probably why I attempt to write.
OK, down to business… Obviously, the Potter books are right up there. If I HAD to choose a favorite Potter, I’d probably go with The Half Blood Prince (#6). I love all of them and there are things that I think are just perfect about each one. But, The Half Blood Prince is literally the first book that ever made me cry. I wept like I lost my best friend and all hope for the future at the end of that book. (Yes, because I am ghey and also a pussy. See, G I call myself a pussy, too…)
But, alas a reader cannot live by Potter alone. (Blasphemy, I know). Other favorites include:
Then there are the Twilight books. The most confusing books on my shelf. The books I love and hate and love to hate and hate to love. They are ridiculous. They are not well written. They are the literary equivalent to Snakes on a Plane. But… we all know how I feel about Snakes on a Plane. So, even though I think they are awful and I do hate them, I also re-read the shit out of those damn Twilight books (I am so ashamed). In case you’re wondering, my favorite is Ecplise. Also, while my heart will always belong to Robert Pattinson (it is pathetic how attractive I find that boy), when it comes to the books, I totally believe that Jacob Black is the healthiest choice of all the boys (& centarians) throwing themselves at this insanely average, whiny, pathetic girl. I hate Bella. Maybe that’s why I read them? I do love to hate Bella.
