|01/ A book that jabs and cuts into my mind:
When We Were Strangers by Pamela Schoenewaldt
I still find this book rather hard to get over. I remember how much I hated that guy for almost destroying the main character by his one cruel act. I grieved over her and her hardship and amazed that she could go through all those awful things and still finds her way out and into a better life. This book makes me feel very humble. I just wish I had read it sooner.
|02/ A book that I have read and immediately loved:
Postcards From a Dead Girl by Kirk Farber
I am not much into re-reading but this one, I have reread a couple of times and still find it funny. And every time I re-read it, it's still funny. Of cause, it is a little sad too but I had a good feeling whenever I read it.
|03/ A book series that I read very quickly:
The Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling
I dislike book series, trilogy, quadrilogy - I mean, if each book is a stand alone, than I don't might as much. But there is an exception: The Harry Potter series. I read the series in just a few days. I did saw the first movie before starting on the books but that did not make it less enjoyable. I still wish Harry's future wife was somebody else. I really did not root for her at all. In fact, I find her the mostly unlikely to be his wife. I suppose it's best not to read the ending if I re-read the series.
04/ A book that I wish had a better ending:
Stardust by Neil Gaiman
|05/ A book that I skimmed while reading:
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
There is a short list but I choose Little Women. I know this is like everybody's favorite book but I just can't seem to like it. Perhaps reading it while as an adult isn't a good idea. I think that must be part of why I don't like it as much as I should. I mean, it has a would-be writer, some fun elements, characters I'm sure I would have liked better if I had read it at a younger age. I skimmed this book. A lot. I just can't seem to like Jo or Amy or Meg expect for Beth, though I did found her story a bit weak as I think she deserves better than that ending.
