I’ve been tagged by cymeteria
Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag [ten] friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them.
Drawing Blood, by Poppy Z.Brite
It’s one of my favorite book. I love the two main characters and the way it’s written, how the pov changes from one character to another and that’s not just the two protagonists. I like its dark atmosphere, the way some things that may have passes for details become acting pieces (like the coffee thing).
Charmed life, by Diana Wynne Jones
I must have read this when I was 8 or smth and it’s still one of my favorite books. I used to buy extra copies, when I found it in used book stores, and offer it to friends… It was a wonderful discovery. At that time, I read it over and over. The main character is so touching and I love the whole story and… everything. Plus the hero is called “Cat”, and maybe that was why I got a thing for cats (even though I ws afraid of them when I was young)…
Harry Potter, by J.K.Rowling
How could I not talk about this one ? When I was 15, my parents and my little sister went back from groceries and they had gone to the book store to find a book for my little sister to read. “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone”. Never heard ot this (Potter mania had not begun yet). As she didn’t read it straight away, I took it and read it. Should I say “devoured” it ? I immediately fell in love with Snape (don’t know why but he got me) and I soon bought the 3 next volumes that had come out at the moment. I had to wait for the 5th book to come out and I couldn’t wait for the French release so I bought it in English and read it. And I did that for the rest of the series, because I couldn’t wait and because it was easy to read ! I fangirled over it a lot (kind of still do it a bit) as many other and it was, and still is, a joy to read and talk about.
By the way, I’m a Slytherin (was sorted out as such in Pottermore).
Junk, by Melvin Burgess
This was like a slap. I think I was 12 or so when I read that one and it was huge. I was hooked up. I absolutely love how it’s written, one characters pov after another (not like in Drawing Blood, though), and sometimes a characters you wouldn’t expect talks too ! Simply amazing. From that time, I’ve always wanted to write something that way, and I kinda did (at least begun) in a fanfiction.
The Magic Color, by Terry Pratchett
The first book in the Discworld series and the first I read from Pratcgett. A friend of mine gave it to me as a birthday present and I thank her a lot for this. But I did not at the beginning. I tried to read it and didn’t like it. I DON’T KNOW WHY. But at the moment, I was probably very tired or ill or smth but I couldn’t get into it and I was confused, I did not understand the situation at the beginning and it pissed me off so I stopped reading. About 6 months later, I tried it again, and I think I read it in one sitting. I laughed SO MUCH, and fell in love with Rincewind, and I was AMAZED (and still am, every time I read a novel from this genius) by Pratchett’s writing. He’s like so creative, so literature speaking adventurous, so damn funny,.. I admire him a lot.
The girl who played go, by Shan Sa
Amazing story, amazing writing, made me cry my eyes out at the end of the book. Shan Sa is one of my favorite author and I recommend her like wow.
Coin locker babies, by Murakami Ryû
Dang, another slap. You don’t get out of this unharmed. I like this kid of stories, real and trashy and sad and strange and… This is a good read. A damn good one.
Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen
This one is a classic and it’s awesome. When I was in middle school, I won a regional English class certificate and I won that book (abridged version, though, as it was for a 14 old). Still it was a great introduction and I have since then read the whole book of course.
I’ll, by Asada Hiroyuki
This one is a manga. I discovered it when I was 15 and I found it great. I like the relationships between the characters so much, and their backstories and the drawing and everything. It’s one of my favorite manga and will always have a special place in my heart. I wanted to read them again recently but the books are at my parents’, I’m crying.
Letters from the inside, by John Marsden
I read that one again recently, because it was very dear to me. When I was in middle school, I often spoke to the librarian from my school, as I was always reading (how things change…). And I saw that one on the “new book” shelf, and it seemed really good so I borrowed it and she was like “oh, please back back soon I had my eyes on this one but couldn’t read it yet !!” I read it quickly and I got really hooked up, and it left me with a strange impression. I didn’t really understand the end or did not want to, because when she finally read it, I discussed it again with her and she explained something I probably already knew but couldn’t tell. I won’t spoil, but it’s great and made a huge impression on me.

"Don’t you dare say that about him."
Someone was talking behind Nagisa’s back, and Rei couldn’t help but physically intervene. He escaped with bruises, cuts, and broken glasses, but at least he was able to protect what was most important to him.
