What’s your favorite section in the bookstore?
Now I am loving this prompt but as a varied bookworm how do I answer this question. My other concern is how the hell have I got so behind on these prompts. I’m guessing it wasn’t actually day one when I discovered day one…
I think the only way I can answer this is to be brutally honest. I am greedy I have a few favourite sections. Even though I am 29 years old I do read a lot of YA books, for those not used to the term that stands for Young Adult. So in that instance some of the books I love are in fact aimed at teens. So that is one section I regularly visit. There were a lot of people who were intrigued when Fifty Shades Of Grey came out, I was one of them. I know I know! Not the best written books in history but E L James did re-invent a trend, look at the amount of books that are being released in the New Adult genre now?
I am currently reading Ali McNamara’s From Notting Hill To New York Actually. A friend lent me the first novel and I was hooked, I just love the way Ali writes and the way she has included film quotes and scenerios a totally different idea to any other book.
So I would have to say Chick Lit is also a category that I enjoy. I am also a fan of Ceceila Ahern, Claudia Carroll, Miranda Dickinson and Sam Binnie to name a few.
I have always been a reader I was hooked by Enid Blyton’s Famous Five. At school English was one of my favourite classes, and I truly believe that Ian McEwan’s Enduring Love got me back into reading for pleasure. We were studying if for English A Level and I was hooked, I have soo many notes in my copy and I would often read ahead of my class. The twists had me on the edge of my seat. When Enduring Love was made into a film I was intrigued to see it. I think the film was done well, but I am positive that the book makes you think and imagine a whole lot more. Ian McEwan has you questioning both of the main characters right until the point you find out the truth, the film sadly was not that intense.
So in answer to the question I have a few favourite sections….YA, New Adult, Chick Lit and then the timeless classics. I really must organise my TBR pile as I have so many gems sat waiting.
As I mentioned I’m a tad behind on the prompts but do check out the questions even if you just do a few they are very enlightening….http://passionpressdaily.com/2013/09/14/day-8-the-daily-passion-prompt-39-days-39-questions-39-pathways-to-passion-2/
