It will no doubt be mortifying, but do it!
Drew a thing related to the last part of Dream Runners. It’s under a cut in the rare event that one of my followers wants to read it but hasn’t yet. It is spoilery.
I think people need to realize that it’s okay to like stuff and not have a deep reason for it
You can like a character because they’re cute, not because you identify with them
You can like a ship because you think they look good together, not because of a deep emotional bond
You can like a song because it’s catchy, not because of the meaningful lyrics
If you like it that’s okay, you don’t have to have deep reason or meaning behind it
rabbit-heart said: What is your favorite book/top 5?
Thank you for asking me! I don’t know if I can even narrow it down to 5—wanton book slut that I am—but I will try. Just kidding! Sorry, but I am going over 5.
- The Magicians by Lev Grossman (I love his prose so much)
- The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson (my favorite love story)
- A Storm of Swords by G.R.R. Martin (it really only works as a part of my favorite series, but it is the most exciting part)
- The Children’s Book by A.S. Byatt (another author whose prose I love, the details of late Victorian England inspire me)
- Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke (awesome alternate history of Regency Period England but with magic)
- Slaughterhouse Five and Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut (I couldn’t pick which I like more; Ice-9 or Tralfamadorians?)
- The Secret History and The Goldfinch (again, I couldn’t choose between two books by an awesome author)
- Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll (I kind of consider them one work in two parts; written for children, the imagination and wordplay delight me to no end)
- Stardust by Neil Gaiman (only one of his works I have read… maybe I should try more)
And there are definitely more, but I don’t want to ramble too much. I might revisit this topic in a later post, though.
Now I have a lot of title to choose from! Oh, did you think I was doing some serious librarian research? No, I was just wondering what I should read next, after finishing Clan of the Cave Bear. Also, I am interested in what books my dash people love. Thank you for sharing even though I posted it a weird time the first go. I will have to compile the answers into a nice list.
