Yeah, Spa - I did the Anne Rice stuff too...I'll read just about any genre if it is well-written. One of my favourite books that I still return to is 'As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning' by Laurie Lee, which chronicles his experience in Spain during the Civil War. It is so beautifully written, just amazing. At the same time, I love cold war spy novels - The Charm School by Nelson DeMille, Gorky Park and Polar Star by Martin Cruz Smith (but not the final book in the trilogy - Red Square - really disappointing, read as if it was written by a completely different author). And yes, I'll even admit to Jackie Collins, too...LOL only on vacations, as a naughty indulgence!!!! [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by spapad from Monday, March 21, 2011 5:02:08 PM)
Where to start. What got me started was All of Anne Rice's works minus the Anne Rampling era, all of James Patterson, all of Harry Potter, for myself, more than Flora lol, Several Priest books by different authors, and about 300 other books that just were one off's or sometimes two offs if I liked the Author's style. My favorite, tuff to call. I know my least favorite. I was disapointed in Dan Brown's Davinci Code because I figured the end out before I should have, other than that I loved the book. So, if that is the worst I have to say, I'd say I'm a bookworm. Flora is well on her way to filling a full bookshelf too, and actually carried enough accelerated reader points at school last year to cover what was required for the entire class. She internets, reads, and only cuts the TV on once a month probably.
Oopsy, this is what am I reading right now. lol a re-read, "What if the Moon Didn't Exist" I'm probably the only person who ever bought the book. lol
