The Lord of the Rings–J.R.R. Tolkien

This trilogy is awesome, but it took me three years to read it. Every morning in high school I would get off the bus with blood shot eyes and my best friend would ask me if I was high. After awhile she stopped asking that and started asking, “Why are you reading it so early in the morning?” Reading these books at 7 am is a baaaaaaad idea.

Eventually the movies came out and I was able to get a hold of who was who with the faces and would try a lot harder to appreciate the long dialogue about the leaves in trees.

After I watched the movies I would reread the books and it would take me only a week. How depressing after spending three years of my life trying to understand who every one was at 7 am.

Harry Potter–J.K. Rowling

You all knew it would come to this eventually.

I am a serious Potterhead.

I love this series with my whole heart. I can’t get enough of it.

I read it about once a year now, and that’s about ten years of my life dudes. Mostly when the movies are coming out I read them all again, or when I feel homesick I usually whip one out and am back in a place so familiar that I feel better.

I don’t even need to tell you the storyline, you should all know about Harry by now. And if you want to get me going for hours about how great it is just email me, haha.

These books are so well written that I can’t even imagine how she kept everything straight in her head or on the page. J.K. Rowling is my goddess.

Odd Thomas-Dean Koontz

Odd Thomas is about a twenty-something year old boy who can see the dead. Unfortunately the dead can’t talk. All he sees are imprints of their souls and he has to figure out why they are there and help get them to where they belong on the other side.

His girlfriend Stormy is among the group that helps him to solve murder cases and she is one of my favourite characters in any book I’ve read.

And again, my favourite beau makes a couple of appearances in this series as a ghost. Elvis was a prankster and even in death likes to goof around with Odd Thomas.

Loop me in odd one.
