30-Day Blog Challenge - Day Four - Your Favorite Book

Today's 30-Day Blog Challenge theme is "Your Favorite Book".

This is another difficult one for me. I love books, so there are tons that could take the top spot for me! Instead though, I'll name you four (three are series, but I'm only counting them as one) that I really like.

I love the Southern Vampire Mysteries. Sookie Stackhouse is a fantastic heroine and Charlaine Harris is a surprisingly gifted author.

What? You doubted my HP loyalty? The Hubs is English, for crying out loud! Of course I'm a Harry Potter fanatic. And I can't wait for the first installment of the Deathly Hallows movie in just a few short months! Eeek!

One word. Edward. *Sigh* I know, I know. I have officially made it into your loser geek file. But you know what? I'm okay with that. I'll admit to my addiction. Edward could bite me anytime. Just keep that Jacob kid away from me. He gives me the creeps!

Alice Sebold transcended something in me when she wrote this masterpiece. A murdered child who not only comes to terms with her own death, but helps her family past their loss as well, while getting even with her murderer. All from her own personal heaven. Can there be anything more touching or powerful?

So there you go. You now have a look into my book fetish cabinet. There are so many more I could name here, but, frankly, we don't have that much time. It's midnight here and I have to be up at 5:30 am for work, so I'm off to bed now, peeps! Have a great evening!

I hope you got enough sleep! Up at 5:30 - bleh! lately I love anything by Alexander McCall Smith. I think I can't take anything too heavy - I need cheerful and lite. I like HP too and have read all the books a few times but haven't re-read them in a while. I hate to say it, but I also like a bit of non-fiction as well - I'm currently reading Bomb, Book, and Compass by Simon Winchester - maybe not my favourite read of all time, but good. And I like Bill Bryson - I just finished At Home. Basically I'm always reading, and I don't mind re-reading book I like over and over again!

Oh man, there is seriously no way I could answer this question.

And, despite my distaste for Twilight, real men don't sparkle...GO TEAM JACOB!
