30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 28

Excited to finish this challenge and start writing my own proper posts. Day 28: A book you can read over and over again and not get bored.

As much as I love books, I don’t seem to read that often. I must have spent over £100 on books last year and I’m pretty sure I have not picked one of them up. I get too into watching TV and movies to read books, which I hate to admit.

I’ve kind of made a deal with myself to set aside an hour or so a day and turn off all of my electronics. I don’t want to say I’m addicted to all kinds of social media, but I’m definitely getting close.

Saying that though, when I’m on my phone I do read a lot of fanfiction. So I suppose I am reading. A lot of fanfiction is brilliant. They are like their own mini-stories, but you already know and love the characters.

I like reading books that have been turned in to movies. Not in the snobbish ‘the book was so much better and this is why’ kind of way, I just find it interesting. I love the Harry Potter book series and I think I could read that over and over again and not get bored. It’s been ages since I read them.

I used to love the Maximum Ride books by James Patterson. I still have them on the top of my wardrobe, I may read them again as I can’t remember them that well.

My favourite genre of book is detective/crime books, which is exactly the same as my taste in TV shows. There’s something about them that I can’t get enough of. You would think I’d get to a point where I have seen every possible interpretation of that genre, but I haven’t gotten there yet.

Books that I’ve got in my wardrobe at the moment, waiting to be read are:

  • Lord of the Rings Trilogy by J R R Tolkien
  • Harry Potter series by JK Rowling
  • Day Four by Sarah Lotz
  • Stardust by Neil Gaiman
  • To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  • Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson
  • Wool by Hugh Howey

I’m going to start my ‘no electronics for an hour’ plan tomorrow and start one of these books.
