Just a little light-hearted, book related post for this Sunday evening…
*DISCLAIMER* I’m not shaming anyone who enjoys any of the authors or books mentioned. Everyone has their own taste and that’s what makes the world such an interesting place.
BOOK I DISLIKE: The Boy in the Attic by David Malone
BOOK I LOVE: Salem’s Lot by Stephen King
BOOK I THINK IS OVERRATED: Pride and Prejudice, To Kill a Mockingbird, Twilight…
BOOK I THINK IS UNDERRATED: Ritual by David Pinner. Almost unheard of but a fantastic read
BOOK I COULD READ ON REPEAT: Anything by Edgar Allan Poe, especially The Raven
BOOK THAT MADE ME FALL IN LOVE WITH READING: The Jiggy McCue series by Michael Lawrence + The Measle Stubbs series by Ian Ogilvy
BOOK THAT CHANGED MY LIFE: Lord of the Flies by William Golding
GUILTY PLEASURE: I don’t feel remotely guilty about anything I read or have read and neither should you
MORBID CURIOSITY GENRES: Basically anything about the Holocaust, concentration camps etc. Also true crime, especially serial killers like Jack the Ripper
BOOK I SHOULD HAVE READ BY NOW BUT HAVEN’T: Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien. I have the trilogy in one HUGE book but find it so daunting, even though I know it contains 3 books!
LONGEST READ: My paperback copy of It by Stephen King was over 1,300 pages and it’s still the longest book I’ve read to date
BOOKS CURRENTLY OWNED: According to my Goodreads account, it’s 161, which is predominantly made up of my ‘to be read’ collection
BOOKS READ SO FAR THIS YEAR: 34 and almost halfway through number 35. My goal for the whole year is 70 so I’m pretty chuffed with my progress so far
