Blog everyday for a month: Book Love

Day 11: Book Love
Tell us about your favourite book. Or maybe give us a top 5 of the books that changed your life.

I love books, I wouldn't say a book has changed my life. 
I've read books all my life. There are books I've loved and books I've hated. There are books I've read over and over and there are books I wouldn't touch with a yardstick. 

I think one of the worst books I've ever read has been 50 shades of Grey. I forced myself to read the whole trilogy during nightshifts sometime ago and seriously beat myself on the head with my bookmark repeatedly. My colleague can vouch for that, she still remembers those nights every time she sees me with a book. 

My all time favorite must be The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. A classic, yes. I guess I read it at the point in my life when I could really relate to it despite the decades between us. 

Lately I've been reading zombie -books. I've enjoyed many and been disappointed by many as well. I'm not too picky though. Fantasy I don't really get. Except Harry Potter :D I've tried to read The Lord of the Rings many many times and have always failed. It really isn't my cup of tea. Current popular ones such as Twilight and The Vampire Diaries (those are books right?) I'm not interested at all in. 

After many zombie -books I actually started reading a detective novel yesterday. I wonder if I'll miss the zombies....

  1. Mä jollain kierolla tavalla pidit tuosta Grey trilogiasta, vaikka en minäkään sitä lemppariksi voi kuvata. Plus että trilogian lopetus oli niin mielikuvitukseton ja tylsä, että se vähän laimensi. Mä en puolestani ole yhtään vampyyrijuttujen perään, mitä nyt olen pikku vampyyria (!) pikkutyttönä lukenut :D
