And don’t forget—Rudolph?
- Overly popular book that you secretly loved despite the hype?
Dasher: The first book I read in one sitting was Forever by Judy Blume. I even faked a cold to stay home from school and finish it!
Dancer: For some reason, I would love to see Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman, the Musical–probably scored by Stevie Nicks
Prancer: Word by Word: The Secret Life of Dictionaries by Kory Stamper really fed my word nerd soul!
Vixen: <<SPOILER ALERT>> When Jamie and Claire find each other again when she returns to the past in Voyager (Outlander series) by Diana Gabaldon. Something about reconnecting sex: heat + heart= steamy!
Comet: I’m sure I’ve said this before, but The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley has been my favorite fantasy book so far and I read that my freshmen year of college. As for sci-fi, there’s something about the humor in A Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams that I keep coming back to.
Cupid: It’s a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice is a story that ticks all the boxes: a witty, strong protagonist; an intense man, and elegant language.
Donner: I rarely pre-order books because I know it’ll still exist after it’s publishing date, but the books in The Great Library Series by Rachel Caine I mark in my calendar. Ash and Quill was particularly painful to wait for.
Blitzen: Sophie’s World by Jostein Gaarder was a present from my godmother and I thought I would skim it just so I could say I read it. It became my favorite book and I’ve reread it more times than I can count. Who knew philosophy was entertaining?
Rudolph: My best friend insisted I read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and I was reluctant to say the least. A YA novel with a movie tie-in and merchandising by Mattel (I say this knowing full well how ginormous the Potterverse has become)? But he lent it to me and I really loved it. I read all three and even saw the movies! Hurray for my inner teen fangirl.
Merry Christmas Everyone!! And just one week until #YDSF
