It has been a busy week, any thoughts on any of these…?
Most overrated book
Middlemarch. Currently reading this for Year Two of University and with all the hype that surrounds it, I was interested to read it. Not really sure that it is the book for me though…
A book you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving
Pride and Prejudice. When I first heard what this book was about, I really thought I wouldn’t like it. After my first read I was still a little disappointed but since then having to read it at A-Level and University, I have grown to rather like it and understand it in the greater depths that this novel consists of.
Favourite classic book
Oliver Twist. This is my favourite classic book, my favourite ever book and I think you are going to see this one appear time and time again on this book challenge.
A book you hated
The Color Purple. I despise this book, I really think that it is the worst book I have ever read and would thoroughly persaude anyone who thinks it would be a good idea to read it, to avoid it. Even thinking about it now makes angry of how much I don’t like it.
A book you used to love but don’t anymore
The Lovely Bones. I loved the book and couldn’t put it down. However, after the film which was very disappointing, I sort of forgot about it and it kind of turned into a rather boring murder story.
Your favourite writer
Charles Dickens. J.K.Rowling. Ian McEwan. (Okay, so I cheated a little bit there but no-one can have just one favourite author!)
Favourite book of your favourite writer
Oliver Twist. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Atonement. These books will be on my book shelf forever. Doesn’t get much better than that for me!
There are several posts to follow in the next week including Julius Caesar, The Jew of Malta and my decided dissertation topic, I promise!
