I thought doing a books topic would be fun, especially because I love to read. Judging by the various opinions on movies, music, and television, I'm sure this community has very diverse taste in books as well.Emily's Favorite Books:
-The Harry Potter series: I love these books so much. J.K. Rowling is an absolute genius. Not only did she create a whole other world, but she reinvented the term "magic". When you read the books, it's just incredible to see the amount of detail she put into the wizarding world. I've read the series twice, and each time you read the books, you notice something new or something that will connect to a storyline in a later book. Hermione Granger is one of my favorite literary characters ever.
-To Kill a Mockingbird: Great novel. I love that it's told from a child's perspective but still really reflective.
-Jane Austen novels: Pride and Prejudice is my favorite Austen (ask SpecialBrownie for a summary! ;). The only Austen I didn't like was Persuasion. Incredibly boring.
I've decided not to go into any more detail about these other books, since it will make this post incredibly long.
-The Great Gatsby
-The Scarlet Letter
-Catcher in the Rye
-Picture of Dorian Gray
-Crime and Punishment
-The Sound and the Fury
-Perks of Being a Wallflower
-Jodi Picoult novels
-Nicholas Sparks novels (extreme guilty pleasure)
And last but not least... TWILIGHT AKA THE GREATEST BOOKS OF ALL TIME! (Just kidding!)
On my current "to read" list that never ends: Anna Karenina, Rebecca, East of Eden, and a few Jodi Picoult books
