Day 15 – A Book That Was Published Before You Were Born

Well there were a lot of books published before I was born in 1997 but I get this idea. I’m going to pick a book I actually enjoyed form before I was born and that just happens to be one of the great classics of the twentieth century.

A book that was published before I was born is The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald first published in 1925.

Day 14 – Celebrate Hardbacks

Let’s celebrate the beauty of hardbacks because we all love beautiful books.

I just picked a few of my favourite hardback books that I own because I own a lot, not all of them as nice. I also haven’t included Pans Labyrinth in this because I’ve mentioned a few times in other posts but just know that it’s up there with the beautiful hardbacks.

So let’s celebrate hardback books!

Day 12 – A Book That Made You Happy

I’ve read hundreds of books I’ve enjoyed. They’ve made me feel a whole range of emotions but I wouldn’t say that they all made me happy per se. How many books have you finished and felt happy at the end without being overwhelmed by a well of other emotions? Pick out one that overall left you feeling happy. It’s tough.

But I found one. A Book that made me happy was Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.

Day 11 – Favourite Non-Fiction Book

For someone who doesn’t really read non fiction this one wasn’t too hard for me. I’m really not too keen on reading non fiction because fiction is so much less terrifying than real life (as you are about to see). I do like reading informative books but books about real people make me rather depressed. I’ll stick to my fantasy works, thanks.

So my favourite non fiction novel is We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed with Our Families by Philip Gourevitch.

Day 10 – Favourite Fantasy Character

These prompts are so hard because it’s so difficult to just choose one character.

Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse was one that I was a little sceptical to start but I got the Shadow and Bone trilogy on sale on my kindle and decided to fmgive it a shot. I’m still a little sceptic to start Six of Crows but at least I took the plunge.

I enjoyed Shadow and Bone a lot more than I expected to and from it fell in love with some of the characters.

My favourite fantasy character is The Darkling from the Shadow and Bone trilogy by Leigh Bardugo.

Day 9 – A book everyone hated but you loved

I’m not really sure about this one. I feel like there aren’t many books that I enjoyed that most others hated. It’s more a case that the books that I read might not have been very well known to begin with and so it is hard to find someone that has read them, let alone love them. So I don’t feel like those books count at all in this prompt.

There is only one that is really coming to mind.

A book that everyone hated that I loved would have to be An Abundance of Katherines by John Green.
