I just have two right now. I love the spines, but I especially love the covers. I want to get them all even though I already own most of the books in the collection.
I don’t like picking and choosing favorites, so I will list some that I’d most recommend: The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath, Towards Zero by Agatha Christie, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway, Waiting on the Barbarians by J. M. Coetzee, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, Uglies by Scott Westerfield, Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes, The Scarlett Pimpernel by Emmuska Orczy, and Animal Farm by George Orwell.
*deep sigh* Life after college? What a daunting thing to think about. Ideally, I’d like to be working with books. I’d really like to be a librarian technician at my local library. That’d be pretty sweet.
Hi, I’m glad you got back to me! It’s really no problem. I’m more than happy to talk to you. Message me off anon and we can get to know each other better.
I’m really sorry you’re going through that with your friends. I know how you feel about friendships in general and talking about books. I honestly didn’t have many people in real life to talk to about books before making this blog. Yes, please let’s be friends! I’m always here to talk to if you need me.
If I had to pick one thing, then probably shoujo manga.
Hi, thank you! I use this theme by sakurane. I’ve edited the HTML a good bit though. The font for currently reading, and everything in my side bar, is something I made using PicLab. It’s how I make all of my headers. I uploaded those images to photobucket, copied the HTML code, and pasted it to the description area in customize. That wasn’t the best explanation. If you have further questions, just send me an ask off anon and I can help you out!
Hi, I hope I can help. The books that first come to mind would be: Annie on My Mind by Nancy Garden, The Miseducation of Cameron Postby Emily M. Danforth, Beauty Queens by Libba Bray, and The Bermudez Triangle by Maureen Johnson. I’d also recommend checking out this list of more books.
My followers suggest: Fingersmith by Sarah Waters, Ash by Melinda Lo, and Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult.
I haven’t read a lot of autobiographies or biographies, but I immensely enjoyed Treat It Gentle by Sidney Bechet, Lady Sings the Blues by Billie Holiday, and Twelve Years a Slave by Solomon Northup. I seem to own a few more books that are people’s journals. I think I like reading those more than reading something that’s strictly an autobiography. I’ve really loved The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath and Between Sea and Sahara. I don’t think I could finish this question without mentioning The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank. I have yet to read it, but I know it’s going to be great. Also, thank you. :)
My followers suggest: What I Talk About When I Talk About Running by Haruki Murakami, Q’s Legacy by Helene Hanff, Model: A Memoir by Cheryl Diamond, Girls Like Us by Rachel Lloyd, Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt, Growing Pains by Billie Piper, Just Kids by Patti Smith, A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway, and The Glass Castle byJeannette Walls.
I have reblogged things from Ned Vizzini and I have some of his quotes and things queued up. His suicide was a shock to me and made me so very sad. I’m glad that he’s getting more attention on Tumblr now. Though I do wish it wasn’t after the fact.
A — Author You’ve Read The Most Books From
I think that goes to Lemony Snicket. A Series of Unfortunate Events does have 13 books.
B — Best Sequel Ever
I’m not one to normally enjoy sequels, especially in trilogies. Though, Pretties by Scott Westerfeld is probably my favorite sequel.
G — Glad You Gave This Book A Chance
I suppose that goes to The Shadow of the Wind by Carols Ruiz Zafon. I really almost gave up on it, but I’m glad I finished it and completed the series.
U — Unapologetic Fangirl For
Oh, so many books. I’d say for just 2013 I became obsessed with all of Patrick Ness and Rainbow Rowell’s works. I’ll always be unapologetic for my love of The Book Thief and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close as well.
