Vani (vdodsey) | 36 comments I promised myself 50 books for 2012, but didn't even get through half of it. So I'm lowering the bar, and will hopefully finish it. I would also REALLY want to be able to read a few classics this year.
Mmm, I love fantasy and adventure books, and also short stories. And my favorite authors are J.K., GRRM, and Neil Gaiman. I also pretty much read any genre as long as it has an interesting plot, so suggestions are welcome! :)


Currently Reading:
Peter Pan
Paper Towns

Wonder was a story of a character unlike any I have ever read. More than anything else, I think that was what I loved the most about it. With all the books coming out these days, I guess I must have gotten tired of all the mary-sues and the good looking ones. This was a book of bravery that--in the kind of society we live it today,--we can more easily relate to.

American Gods
Rating: 3/5

This took a while for me to finish, but it was still good. I think people who are actually from America will enjoy this more, though. Most of the terms an references will be familiar for them, unlike they were to me, and that'll keep them reading.

The Giver
Rating: 5/5

If every single person in the world read this, I think the world would turn into such a better place. This book really got me deep, made me think and thankful. People tend to forget what they have sometimes, and The Giver slaps it all right in your face.

The Long Earth
Rating: 2/5

Whew. I finished this just in time for my January Monthly Challenge.

After reading the book, I wasn't really sure of what happened. The plot just seemed to comprise entirely of the main characters just moving from one world to the next. It was interesting, at first, to see what they would find, but as the story progressed it just seemed to get...tiring. The ending was a surprise, however. I think it's my favorite part of the whole story. It shows just how selfish people can be. Now that I think about it, I just kinda love books that tell me how ugly people are.

To Kill a Mockingbird
Rating: 4/5

It's a great book. I know it is. The only reason it got only four out of five was because it isn't really my type of book. I guess I'm still getting used to the classics.

Peter Pan
Rating: 4/5

Wow. I've only watched the movie so far, but am I glad I read this. There's something about the way Sir Barrie writes that gets into your younger self. Weird thing is, I ended up pitying Peter (thus sort of pitying my youth), but loved him loads at the same time.
