Books are one of my favorite things in the world. I've always had a longing to be an author, even though I'm no good. I can eat away a book at amazing speeds too; I finished a 400 page book in about four or five hours, including lunch breaks.
Not as fast as some, but I consider it pretty good.
As far as particular books I like, I have a few. I can't casually like books. I have a very obsessive personality. I will find a series (it rarely happens with singular books) and read and think over it constantly.
Below are particular series I've been obsessed with over the recent months: Percy Jackson
: I adore these books for the rich world they create. I've always like mythology, and setting that up in a modern era made this series irresistible. Harry Potter
: It's been a while, but I liked these books for the characters. Great characters and LOTS of them to love. Artemis Fowl
: This is my current love. I like these for the actiony plot and also for the characters. The world set-up isn't as attractive to me as Percy Jackson, but I'm learning to love.
^^ Funny thing is that I don't consider myself a fantasy fan, yet all these books are fantasy. Gone with the Wind:
The only book not in a series that I'm in love with. I fell for these because of the character development. Scarlett, for better or for worse, changed a lot throughout the book. I was very interesting to contrast her in the beginning with who she became at the end. Also, Melanie is my great. I wish all my friends were like her.
Scarlett had no idea what she had until it was too late! Black Beauty
: The only horse book I really love. Classic and near perfect, simple as that.
And there is so, so much more I'm too tired to type...
Now, for a critical question. I have literally lost sleep over this thought and am wondering opinions.
Annabeth and Percy versus
Holly and Artemis versus
Ginny and Harry.
Who would win in a fight? (Magic and weapons permitted.)
