*lightly dusts blog* Oh lawdy! We have a visitor.Ugh what kind things to say, I think I like you! Mental image sounds about accurate.
Well 4914-3928-8511 is the friend code. Inbox me with yours? Maybe we can trade or something sometime? My blog is a bit all over the place but I’m glad you found something enjoyable in it.
Favourite book? *heart palpitations* I tried to think of one to write down but I honestly can’t give a truthful answer because there’s so many potentials… I guess a lot of it is dependant on mood. I’m currently reading the Game Of Thrones series. There’s a lot of books I love but not one stand out favourite.
I mostly lean towards escapism like fantasy etc but I’ve also read some beautiful things set in the “real world”. Not ashamed at all to say I like some mainstream popular children’s/young adult novels like Hunger Games, Harry Potter, A Series Of Unfortunate Events etc. I cannot exaggerate how much I love Lemony Snicket/Daniel Handler. Growing up Roald Dahl was most certainly my favourite author. I still very much think he was an amazing writer in both his children’s book and lesser known adult stories. I tend to find that writers for teens/children just seem to generally show more imagination.
I think there’s a lot of mediocre poetry out there but when I like it I really like it. I like Sylvia Plath’s poems where you get this vivid imagery of emotional turmoil but find other work of hers excellent in technique but missing something.
"Classics" wise I’m a fan of George Orwell and Edgar Allan Poe, and I have a bit of a soft spot for Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights.
"Adult wise" I love some of Stephen King’s work and greatly admire him but also find him to be a bit hit and miss. I think that’s to do with the sheer volume of work he has though - I was bound to not enjoy a few of them. I think his novel "Misery" is pretty amazing and I once had the pleasure of playing the antagonist Annie as part of a theatre unit in my degree.
Then there are those random one off gems of books that you just find. They might be an authour’s only book or just never broke that well into the market but they can be amazing. I buy a lot of second hand books so I have a few of these.
I like a good graphic novel/comic/manga as well. I read Pokemon Adventures and enjoy the Batman franchise .Battle Royale was a good series and immensely better than the movie.
A good biography doesn’t go astray either…
All in all I think I just like reading but I hope this is a sufficient answer even though it’s a little avoidant of the actual question.
Wishing you the best, in life, in love, and in general as well.
I just finished reading your reply! I should’ve known better than to ask you about your favourite book when there was probably going to be many instead. I have read nearly all of the books and comics you’ve mentioned, though I prefer Terry Pratchett to Stephen King, myself.
I hail from Canada, and have become massively ashamed now that its true, or at least current, intentions have become shown to the world. Unless there’s something urgent or important to be done, I tend to live in my own or other people’s worlds of imagination. I like and respect your Roller Derby furry, by the way!
Finally, thank you for all the likings you did! I’ve written more things I have planned to upload, but I need to search and find which ones I haven’t already uploaded yet. I’ve uploaded your Friend Code, and will shower you with O-powers upon request.
