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.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes–Arthur Conan Doyle

These are his short stories, I really like them. I like a little mystery. At one time, I thought that Sherlock Holmes was a real person and that Arthur really knew him. Now I realize what I was really thinking when I thought that. Which is that books can really come alive to me. Sometimes more so than real people can.

Good read, recommend his series. It’s a good thing that Guy Ritchie made that movie or I would’ve never peaked an interest in Sherlock Holmes. It’s a good thing that lots of movies are being made from books. PS. I Love You is next on the reading list. I heard it’s way different than the movie.

The Uninvited–Tim Wynne-Jones

Uninvited indeed. This book was HORRIBLE. Maybe this was just his breather book before he continued on with his other, apparently, award winning books, but I just wanted to set this book on fire the whole time I was reading it. It was badly written, the plot was weak, and the characters did things and reacted to things in ways that I’ve never seen anyone do. It was ridiculous, and not in a good funny way. This book was supposed to be a suspense book…I THINK. I wasn’t in suspense for anything.

PLUS a brother and sister kiss in it. For like a second, but it was on the lips. Just weeeeeird. I would never kiss my brother on the lips!!! Yikes-a-bee! I wouldn’t suggest this book to my worst enemy…okay, maybe Tobey Maguire would like it.
