30 Days of Books Days 10-13


Hi! I'm back! My husband and I are in the middle of replacing a fence in our backyard and well, that and the holiday and the weekend have me running behind. So, pardon me while I catch up.

Day 10: Favorite classic

Not only is this my favorite classic but Frankenstein is my favorite book of all time! If you want to read a post where I gush about it go here. Otherwise, just know that everything about this book touches my soul.

Day 11: A book you hated
I had such high expectations for this one and I truly loathed it. It was the biggest dissapointment. The MC acts like she's bipolar. Someone dies and the couple just shrug and start making out! Ugh! I hated this one.

Day 12: A book you used to love but don’t anymore
Now, Suey is going to give me a hard time because we had a Book Banter about this one. I adored this book the first time around and upon a reread I still liked it but it lost a bit of it's power over me. 


Day 13: Your favorite writer
This is a cruel, cruel question. I have many favorite authors but if I had to choose based on stories and actual GOOD, BEAUTIFUL writing, I'd go with Markus. The man can write!

  1. I'd probably include THE DUFF in a list of books I hated. I've never read RIPPLE and it's been a long time since I read FRANKENSTEIN. Probably due for a re-read on that one.

  2. I knew Frankenstein would be on your list. But, I didn't expect The Duff to be. I'm sorry it lost its power over you. :( And, yeah, the author prompt is cruel. I could choose a bajillion too. Good choice with Zusak. :)

  7. I had to DNF The Duff. I'm not sure what it was about it that I didn't like but I just couldn't continue with it.

  8. Oooh, I love Frankenstein too. I haven't read the other books, but maybe that's just as well since they don't seem to have captured your fancy. :)

  9. I have to agree with you about Zusak. Aside from being a fabulous writer, he is also kind and generous and just plain fantastic. And yay for Frankenstein! I love going back to the classics.

  10. I LOVE FRANKENSTEIN TOO!!!! It is such an amazing and moving story. LOVE LOVE LOVE! Way better than Dracula!

    Zusak is a beautiful writer. I don't anyone can compare with his way with words.

    I saw The Duff movie, and I was. . .ugh! It wasn't good.
