Sonnet Says: Books


Are any of you members of the website goodreads.com? If not, then I suggest you familiarize yourself with it as quickly as possible, for it is a magnificent resource for keeping track of all the books you’ve ever read or want to read. It allows you to classify materials into three categories: read, currently-reading and to-read. It then lets you rate each book on a five star scale. Pretty nifty, huh?

This article, however, is not a goodreads promotion, though goodreads did help me write this. The topic this week is is to list my top five favorite books and to tell you why I’m going to read the book I’m going to read next. My least favorite type of questions to answer are those that pertain to listing any kind of favorite anything. Aye me! Let the torture begin.
It shouldn’t be so difficult to pick a favorite, I know! It’s just that that my attention is so fickle regarding books. For weeks I might devour every fantasy book I can get my hands on and then suddenly I will develop a craving for recipe and cookbooks. Simply put, I just can’t bring myself to narrow down the list of books I have read to five ultimate titles that describe my over all tastes.

And because of that here’s a list of five assorted books. There is no particular theme or genre to thread them together besides the fact that I thoroughly enjoyed them:

  1. Stardust by Neil Gaiman
  2.  Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
  3. Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
  4. The Gospel According to Larry by Janet Tashjian
  5.  The Princess Bride by William Goldman

Now, I am to tell you what book I am going to read next and why. This question is much easier to answer, as I am just about to start reading Mort by Terry Pratchett. I am working my way through the Discworld series (a series that I highly recommend) and boy is it fantastic.

I hope I was able to give you guys a few good suggestions for summer reading! Have fun and DFTBA.
