Memorable Books Meme

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 28, 2015, 6:35 PM

Got from :iconthornyenglishrose:


1. Name three of your favourite books and tell us a bit about them.

:bulletblue:  :bulletblue: Hogfather, by Terry Pratchett. I love the idea of Death fighting to allow humans to preserve what makes us human. My favorite Discworld character, and probably my favorite book in the series.
:bulletblue:  :bulletblue: Eugene Peterson’s Message translation of the Bible. Really engaging to read alongside a more literal translation.
:bulletblue:  :bulletblue: Wuftoom, by Mary G. Thompson. This is one of the most amazing examples of world-building I’ve ever read. Even though the society you get to know is in many ways unsympathetic, you just want to learn more about them and see how they will adapt to the changes in their world.

2. Name three of your least favourite books.

:bulletred:  :bulletred: Women Who Run With the Wolves, by Clarissa Pinkola Estés. My Goodreads folder for this one is “Why did I spend money on this?” :XD: Folk tales are analyzed to death from a narrow perspective that feels implausible and sucks to fun out of them.
:bulletred:  :bulletred: Rebecca, by Daphne du Maurier. I found the characters shallow and boring. I was the only one in my class who wanted to see them go to jail for their crimes.
:bulletred:  :bulletred: The Thing on the Shore, by Tom Fletcher. This one disappointed me because Fletcher has a great, distinctive style and skillfully builds suspense. Then the characters get progressively more unpleasant and it ends up being one of those “life sucks and then you die” points of view. If I want to make myself depressed I can just watch the news. It takes less time and I can actually learn something.

3. Name some books you've loved since childhood.

:bulletpink: :bulletpink: Lon Po Po: A Red Riding Hood Story from China, by Ed Young. I discovered this one in the school library in grade school and bought it a few years later. The art is dark, eerie, and beautifully textured.
:bulletpink: :bulletpink: I did enjoy the Harry Potter series, though my memory isn’t great on the details. My mom read some of those in two days. It’s like her superpower.
:bulletpink: :bulletpink: The Wolving Time, by Patrick Jennings. An exciting story about a 13 year old werewolf and his family trying to survive during the Middle Ages.

4. Name a book that disappointed you.

Shapes, by Steve Vance, a sequel to his much better werewolf book The Hyde Effect. The first was pure horror, creative and scary. The sequel takes a weird sci-fi turn. At one point a woman is mutated by the shapeshifter virus and melts into an amoeboid shape with her breasts as the only recognizable feature. The heck, Vance? :stare:

5. Name a book that surprised you.
, by A. Lee Martinez. I picked this one up at a bookstore because of the title. I usually like to know something about a novel before I buy it, but in this case taking a chance didn’t turn out to be a mistake. Martinez’s fantasy/comedies are goofy fun.

6. Name a favorite graphic novel/ comic/ manga.
Calvin and Hobbs. A fun celebration of weirdness and creativity.

7. Name a favourite non-fiction book.
Gulp, by Mary Roach. From urban legends about butt fat dumplings to a medieval nun who claimed her rear end was possessed by Satan, Roach always has something interesting and bizarre to offer.

8. Name a favourite poetry book.
I haven’t read any poetry books, though I do own a lot of short story anthologies.

9. Name a book you'd like to see made into a movie.
Where the Chill Waits,
by T. Chris Martindale. This is one of the most faithful adaptations of the Wendigo myth I’ve seen. No, I still don’t know why most people think a Wendigo is a deer zombie. :XD: The story has well placed humor, a bunch of likable characters, and some deeply creepy scenes.

10. What are you reading now?

The Last Continent, by Terry Pratchett. It’s funny, but it has two things that always make a Discworld book slightly lower on the favorites list- the wizards, and references to movies I’m not interested in seeing. Pretty much any wizard beside the Librarian who isn’t given a name just kind of blurs together into a big crowd of whiny and lazy. I do love Rincewind though. Saving the world by running away from things cracks me up.

“There is.” Yur said beside me.  He could have passed for a human—but who really wanted to? 
I threw the squid’s body into a bubbling chili that could have stood in for any number of species’ excrements.  The fact that I could spot floating artifacts of the previous week’s meals didn’t help the comparison.  I snatched a lid and capped off the pot before the squid’s gelatinous body began to

OK, now that I have some time I’ll let you know what I thought with a proper critique. =) The spacing in the intro dream sequence seems ...

This is a very intriguing concept. The Spider takes from a single person to help many, but doesn’t even need to kill that person to do ...

I will try to offer critiques on a wide variety of things when I have time, but my main focus is likely to be prose.
