I was tagged by the lovely and talented Shawna Romkey to talk about my five favourite books. So here I go.
Firstly, it’s about a writer. Secondly, it’s Canadian. I loved the Diviners, mostly because I loved Morag, who finds a way to live her own life no matter what.
This is one of those books that you always look back on and say ‘it changed my life’, which it did. I was in sixth grade and discovered Harry. A girl who got to wield a sword and save the day. Was this even possible? Safe to say this is where I developed my love of a good strong heroine.
I fell in love with fantasy and this series in 8th grade. I devoured them as fast as I could get them, then reread the books so often every year I had to buy new copies every so often. Lessa, another strong willed female character, was my hero.
This is one of those books that you have to read for class, and then you take it home and reread it because it just reaches you. I won’t say I loved it, but it affected me, scratched itself into my memory like initials on a tree.
I had to narrow down my current favourite genre of paranormal/urban fantasy to one author? How about PatriciaBriggs-LaurellkHamilton-LilithSaintcrow-TaylorKeating-NaliniSingh?
Okay, okay. If I have to pick my current favourite, it’s gonna be this book. Elena (besides having the same name as my Godsister, who rocks btw) is kickass, take no prisoners, small and mighty kinda gal. I’m noticing a trend. Hmmm.
So what are your five fav books?
