You think they're cuddly but I think they're sinister

Books! Books!

I like books so that qualifies me as 'tagged' by May who doesn't know me but that's cool, she sounds like an awesome nurse and we all like the awesome nurse people.

Books that changed my life
Barring scriptures, they would be:
Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupery

Books that I read more than once
The Three Musketeers by Alexander Dumas
Beauty by Robin McKinley
The Hero And the Crown by Robin McKinley

Books that I would want in a desert island:
Anything written by Robin McKinley (are we finding a trend?)
Anything written by C.S. Forester. Hopefully his books based on the high seas might teach me a thing or two on how to get me off the island!

One book that made me laugh:
Dealing With Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede

One book that made me cry:
The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo

One book I wish I had written:
The one I'm writing now. Secret Dragon by me! Not out in stores yet. ;P

One book I wish had never been written:
Eragon by Christopher Paolini. He should have waited until the hormones had cleared from his system and he 'graduated' from D&D tourneys in his parents' basement.

One book I am currently reading:
Raven Ring by Patricia C. Wrede

I LOVE books so if you have a suggestion, leave it here! I'm definitely getting a library card so I can read all the ones I'm suggested.

Now I need to bully my cousin into pinching it off so I can use the toilet. >(


  1. i enjoyed reading your list...and isn't it amazing how one little prince can change our lives?

  2. Ahh Enders Game...good stuff (I clearly have a future as a book critic ;) honestly, all I can think about that book is "wow")
