There’s loads of older books about the sea or being lost at sea. I can’t tell you for certain which you mean without more details. It could be The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne, Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson, Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe, The Cruel Sea by Nicholas Monsarrat, Jaws by Peter Benchley, or Master and Commander by Patrick O’Brian. I hope that helps!
Hi! I don’t think I have just one. I own quite a few poetry books, but that’s definitely an area of my library that I’m lacking in. I love e. e. cuminings’ Selected Poems, the Liverlight ed., Emily Dickinson’s Collected Poems, T.S. Eliot’s Four Quartets, Eireann Corrigan’s You Remind Me of You, and William Carols Willams’ Spring and All. I think my absolute favorite poetry book I own is my edition of Keat’s poetry. I’ve had it appraised and it’s over 100 years old.
I watch too many shows, honestly. Right now, I’m watching Hannibal, Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Orphan Black, and The 100. I also watch loads of kdramas and I’m keeping up with Angel Eyes, Doctor Stranger, Hotel King, and Witch’s Romance. (Though I’m probably going to drop two of those.) Yesterday, I finished both seasons of Darker than Black.
Hi, I honestly haven’t read that much. The ones I’ve actually finished are a lump sum of two, No. 6 and Ouran. I’m keeping up with five that are currently publishing right now. They’re mostly shoujo. I’m planning on starting some more this summer.
Hi, no I promise your question is not annoying! I love getting questions. Yes, I’d rather read series consecutively. It’s nicer to have all the information from the last book fresh in your mind as you keep going.
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.
