All About Me
All About My Books:
I am OBSESSED with all things Pride and Prejudice! Seriously, I own like 30?! different variations/retellings at this point. My husband thinks I have serious problems. I think you can NEVER have too much Darcy/Elizabeth.
My husband and I own, physically, about 750 books at last count. He gives me a sort of disappointed pleading look each time we go anywhere near a bookstore…but he never stops me from going into them. Every time we add a new addition to our list, it’s like:
I sometimes read TOO much into a plot line–my imagination gets away with me, and suddenly I’m seeing potential endings in places no foreshadowing even exists! Often, these endings are dark, violent, and emotional. Somehow, I’m always disappointed with the author for not fulfilling those
tragedies travesties heartaches wishes?…
I’m beginning to loathe cliff-hanger endings in series. Gena Showalter has proven, with the White Rabbit Chronicles, that books in a series don’t HAVE to end with a suspenseful “mystery” to keep people reading/make them pick up the next book. And really, HOW MANY TIMES can we read about characters “going missing” or “maybe dying” or “doing something stupid” before it gets boring?
I think I’ve read more books this year alone than I’ve read in pretty much my whole life. Which…is weird, because I’ve always liked reading? It doesn’t make much sense–I guess I had a life before, or something.
I ADORE lyrical/poetic prose; it’s one of my favorite writing techniques (perhaps because I’m a poet? I don’t know). Sometimes, I wish ALL books were written this way–I imagine the world/characters so much better with finely honed descriptions!
Finally… I might have an unhealthy attraction to crazy “bad” boys. Like… Peter Pan? The Mad Hatter?! Koschei the Deathless, from Catherynne M. Valente’s Deathless?!?!?! I just can’t handle them at all–they break me into pieces.
