Day 17: Favourite Quote from My Favourite Book

Again, I have a ton of favourite books and quotes. But I’ll mention some from two books.

“A guy out there was meant to be the love of your life, your best friend, your soul mate. The one you can tell your dreams to. He’ll brush the hair out of your eyes. Send you flowers when you least expect it. He’ll stare at you during the movies, even though he paid $8 to see it. He’ll call to say goodnight or just because he’s missing you. He’ll look in your eyes and tell you, you’re the most beautiful girl in the world, and for the first time in your life, you’ll believe it.”

—   A Walk To Remember, Nicholas Sparks

“You read a book and it fills you with this evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.”

“And then the line was quiet but not dead. I almost felt like he was there in my room with me, but in a way it was better. Like I was not in my room and he was not in his, but instead we were together in some invisible and tenuous third space that could only be visited on the phone.”

—   The Fault in Our Stars, John Green

What do you think of this post? And how about you? What’s your favorite quote from your favorite book? :)

Bookish Challenge: Days 11-16

I’ve decided to put all the delayed days in one post but I left out Day 17 because I though it’s such a great topic and I wanted it to be on a solo-post. :)

Day 11: A Book I Hate

For this one, I do not actually hate it. But it’s really one of the few I didn’t finished reading.

2429135

I don’t know? Maybe the pacing is too slow or I was just not interested. I mean, at the middle chapters, I was intrigued of what happened to Harriet. But as the story goes on, I just got bored and put it down. Anyway, I’m going to re-read this soon. Who knows? I might change my views about it or I might surprisingly love it.

Day 12: A Book I Love and Hate at the Same Time

It’ll probably be Fifty Shades of Grey. Hah!

10818853

I just love the story, but I hate how Christian was tortured and was treated that way as child. And I hate how he usually settles for the dominant-submissive relationship before he met Anastasia. And I should keep my mouth shut because this is becoming a spoiler post. =))

Day 13: My Favourite Author

I HAVE A LONG LIST. But I’ll just cut it down to the top 3.

  • Nicholas Sparks
    – I mentioned that I loved reading him as a child and how weird that sounds, but there’s something to the way Nicholas Sparks write that catches me off guard. When I was a kid, I don’t really like reading about adults. I mean, working people and stuff. Because what do I know about those? But Nicholas Sparks’ novels have always been an exception for me. Plus, I don’t get to read a lot of books before. Until I turned high school and was re-introduced to books that I’ve been reminded of how much I love to read.
  • John Green
    – I’ve read all of John Green’s books last December-January except for Papertowns and Will Grayson, Will Grayson. It was a gift by le boyfie for Christmas. And I was… Ahhhh!! John Green’s totally one of my favourite authors! Hah. I loved all his books, although, of course the ones that stood out was TFiOS and LFA. I loved them, I cried buckets. So . Much. Feels.
  • Cassandra Clare
    – Of course, since I’ve read the first book of TMI, I loved Cassandra Clare already. I was so glad my friend told me how great the book is and let me borrow it. And just like that.. I fell in love with Cassie’s writing style. I have yet to read TID.

Day 14: Book Turned Movie and Completely Desecrated

For me it’ll probably The Perks of Being A Wallflower’s movie.

I don’t know if it’s just here or what. But it was completely… cut short. I mean, there are so many events in the book that wasn’t mentioned in the movie. It just saddened me.

Day 15: Favourite Male Character

Male? Male?! I have a lot. Ahhh!! I’m going to list them down and you guys figure out yourselves why I love them so much.

  • Harry Potter, Harry Potter Series, J.K. Rowling
  • Jace Wayland/Lightwood/Herondale, The Mortal Instruments Series, Cassandra Clare
  • Adam Wilde, If I Stay by Gayle Forman
  • Tobias Eaton a.k.a. “Four”, Divergent Series by Veronica Roth
  • Colton, Charade by Nyrae Dawn
  • Patch Cipriano, Hush, Hush Series by Becca Fitzpatrick

Day 16: Favourite Female Character

While I love male characters, there’s also a list of female characters that I like. But I’m going to name the three that stands out.

  • Hermoine Granger, Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
  • Clarissa Fray/Morgenstern a.k.a. “Clary”, The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare
  • Beatrice Prior a.k.a. “Tris”, Divergent Series by Veronica Roth

Day 10: A Book That Reminds Me of Home

It’ll probably be A Walk To Remember since Nicholas Sparks has been my companion as a child.

3473

I know it sounds weird, I mean, a child reading Nicholas Sparks? But I do. And I loved him, he’s actually my favorite-st author ever. He’s writing style is just so easy to fall in love with. So for everyone who haven’t read him yet, I suggest you to! Any book of NS is worth it!

 

Day 9: A Book I Thought I’d Never Like But Ended Up Loving

10818853

I really though I wouldn’t like this book since I’ve heard so many people say how “nonsense” the book is. It took me a long time before I finally decided to start reading it, and loved it! I mean, yeah, it may be full of “sex scenes” but if you just look past those and try to understand, you’ll probably like it too. I fell in love with Christian after reading the first book, although, yes, I hate how this is full of those scenes too. But still… Really, the story is great. It shows how love can change a person.

I’m sort of against the movie, though. I mean, please! Can we not. Haha.

Day 8: Most Overrated Book

For me, at least, it’ll probably be Twilight. I mean, everyone cannot forget the movie, some hates it so much and some loves it. As for me, I’m not really a fan but I don’t hate it because I’ve read the books and though of the story as cute. But I’m sorry because I don’t find it swoon-worthy.

People talk about it so much and keeps comparing it to all the vampire books out there and it sometimes annoys me because for one, no two books can ever be the same.
