Hello. Welcome to my blog 🙂
As my first post I thought I’d give a little insight into my favourite things (all literary related of course) all the way from A- Z.
A- ‘Atonement’ by Ian McEwan
I’ve never felt a stronger emotion because of a book in my life. Read this one by Ian McEwan and you can decide if it was a good or bad one.
B- Bridget Jones
I relate to her on a spiritual level okay?
C- Cassandra Clare
Anything she write is, in my opinion, magic. But I will always have a special place in my heart for The Infernal Devices.
D- ‘Diary of a young girl’ by Anne Frank
It gave me nightmares but everyone should read Anne Frank’s diary at least once in their lives.
E- ‘Enjoying the chase’ by Kirsty Moseley
I love this book by Kirsty Moseley so much. I must have read it about seven times.
F- ‘Frankenstein’ by Mary Shelley
I love the book itself, but I also love that Mary Shelley started writing this novel when she was only eighteen- the same age as I was when i started writing mine. Plus i’m a massive fan of the gothic.
G- Gatsby by S. Fitzgerald
The book and the character. Both are so beautiful.
H- ‘Heaven’s at Capacity’
My novel that I’ve been working on for a year.
I- ‘Iliad’ by Homer
Another Epic; only this one is Greek and tells the story of the famous Trojan War.
J- ‘Jane Eyre’ by Charlotte Bronte
I studied the novel for A Level and its stuck with me.
K- Kissed by an Angel by Elizabeth Chandler
I love the idea of Guardian angels and I especially loved this take on it.
L- Luna Lovegood
I love that she didn’t mind what others thought about her. She was kind, thoughtful and smart.
M- Malorie Blackman
Noughts and Crosses is incredible.
N- “Not all those who wonder are lost”
Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring. A quote I try to live by.
Roman writer. I highly recommend reading some of his love elegy- I adore it.
P- ‘Peter Pan’ by J.M. Barrie
If you’re a fan of the movie, J.M. Berrie’s novel is just as magical.
Q- Queen of Hearts
Alice’s adventures in Wonderland is just so crazy but the Queen of Hearts used to scare me so much. She was just so…intimidating.
R- Roald Dahl
Growing up, his books were my favourite things in the world. I’ve read all of them at least three times.
S- Slater Brothers
Seriously, read LA Casey’s series about them. It’ll make you laugh ALOT.
T- ‘The fault in our Stars’ by John Green
“As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, then all at once”.
U- ‘Under the Dome’ by Stephen King
“If you don’t control your temper, your temper will control you”
His poetry is beautiful but his Epic, The Aeneid is probably my favourite piece of literature of all time.
W- ‘The Wife of Bath Prologue and Tale’ by Chaucer
It’s feminist and funny, and even more so considering it was written in 1405.
X- Xavier Benedict
A character in the Finding Sky series. I had such a big crush on him when I first read the books…
Y- ‘You against me’ by Jenny Downham
I read this when I was about thirteen and still think about it to this day.
Z- Zoey Redbird
The heroine from the House of Night. Although most people claim they got into the popular genre of Vampire novels though Twilight, i was definitely sucked in with PC Cast’s series first.
