Day Twelve: A book you used to love but don’t anymore
(Making up for lost time.)
None, because whatever titles I’ve gotten around to loving are still being loved. And besides, I don’t love a certain book easily, so there’s a lot of love for the ones already loved. (I am faintly aware that I may be no longer making sense, but I don’t care.)
I don’t think I’ve ever hated a book, but I have disliked some. Peony in Love by Lisa See was one of them. It was inspired by a Chinese classic (Peony Pavilion), and actually has characteristics of an okay-book, but it’s just that I really dislike the heroine damsels-in-distress who kill themselves for somewhat foolish reasons (I’ll make an exception for Juliet in the movie Romeo+Juliet… Leonardo DiCaprio dying on your lap is kind of murderously heartbreaking).
Another book I didn’t like? Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. I might need to read it again.
keesh, could you recommend me any book that would be worth reading?? i'm bored.. i wanna read something, anything!!!! haha.. :D
You might want to try Paolo Coelho (I like Veronika Decides to Die and Like the Flowing River); The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger; Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia-Marquez. Hehe. I’m not sure if this is really your type of books but I think they’re okay. :) Oh, if you want something kinda young, go for If I Stay by Gayle Forman or Sharing Sam by Katherine Applegate. They’re also nice. :)
I missed two days of tumblr!! Ugh. Should be on day 12 by now, but whatever. Let’s get this done! :) My favorite classic book… I can’t really single one out, because I’ve always preferred classics to contemporary works. Favorite classic books it is then.
Mansfield Park by Jane Austen — first classic book I’ve ever read
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen — who doesn’t like this? (aside from Mark Twain and Charlotte Bronte)
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas, pere — Definitely a must read.
The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton — Gossip Girl for the twentieth century. Besides, forbidden love always gets me.
Persuasion by Jane Austen — okay, you got me. I’m an Austen fan. :)
