These are my favorite books. The ones that made me cry, made me think, and just made me happy.
A few of these books I have written about before, so you might have already read how I feel about these books. But I love these books, and I can't get over them.
When I was younger, the books that I read were the forced books that were assigned for class, and I never really liked them, so I never really liked reading. That is until I was about 17 and I haven't stopped reading since.
|I got Gone with the Wind, The Last Victim, and Dear John at a second hand shop. That is why they're so beaten up. I don't know what happened to Lucas.|
Gone With the Wind
I fell in love with the movie a really long time ago. I think I've been watching it since I was six or seven. I bought the book two years ago, I think, and I instantly started reading it. It amazes people that I have read this book. (Great company I keep right?) I'm actually planning on re-reading this book over the summer. I also have been planning two different tattoos from this book.
The Last Victim
I saw this movie called "Dear Mr. Gacy" On T.V. about two or three years ago and at the end I found out that there was a book that went along with it. I read this book in about two days. It a very dark and emotional book. But it's not bawl my eyes out emotional, it's play with your mind emotional. Jason, the narrator, tries to get into a few different serial killers minds, mainly John Wayne Gacy, and really Gacy gets into his mind. (If you know anything about Gacy then you'll know how twisted he is.) It's a great read if you're interested in Serial Killers.
I read this book when I was 14 and then I re-read it when I was 20. I love this book. This is one of those I've read the book and seen the movie, and I think that the movie did the book justice. I've never read then instantly watched, but I think that the movie was done really well. This also is another book where I want a tattoo from. But not "Stay Gold" because too many people have that. I would want one that people would have to ask about, not just know.
This book intrigued me a lot. I got it when I was 12, and didn't touch it until I was 19. I liked it because it kind of put me into the mind of a teenager in the UK. I had never read a book that was written by someone from the UK until then, and I felt like it was a little different than an american teenager. (Maybe I just have a complex. I don't know.) Anyways, I thought about this book for a while after I finished it, and I really want to re-read it just because.
The Bell Jar
I have written about this book before. I'm pretty sure this was the first book I've read this year. (I'm actually in a book funk atm.) When I read it, I fell in love. I've always known about Sylvia Plath, and I've read a few of her poems for an English class, but I never thought that I would really like something by her. Poems really aren't my cup of tea, but I decided to give The Bell Jar a try after I took the English class. I'm glad that I did. If you have never read this book, I really do suggest it.
I've thought about doing a whole separate post on all of the Nicolas Sparks books I own but for now, I have picked my favorite. I am a sucker for a book that makes me cry. Anything that will tear my heart out I will read. This book did it for me. I saw the movie first, then read the book very quickly, and then re-watched the movie, and let me tell you the movie is awful compared to the book. I now hate the movie because of reading the book.
This book makes me smile, makes me laugh, makes me angry, and makes me cry. I love this book. I think I got this book around the age of 16 or 17 but didn't read it until I was 18 or 19. There is a second one, but that one is not as good as this one. If you have no interest in drugs then this book is not for you. I definitely cried during this book. I loved it.
