Apples – ah. It was deep, meaningful, probably won a lot of awards but, um, it really isn’t your thing.
The Old Man and the Sea by Earnest Hemingway. Sorry to all the Hemingway fans out there but I really disliked this one. I’m so glad that it was a short read because I don’t think I would have been able to finish it otherwise. I am willing to give Hemingway another try though, so if you have any favourites you would like to recommend please do so 🙂
Black Jellybeans – why do these exist?
This is a hard one. I’m not a big fan of soppy romance novels or emotional YA fiction (I wouldn’t touch The Fault in Our Stars with a bargepole!), but if people want to read that then who am I to judge?
(unrelated, but black jellybeans are the best and I’m glad they exist, just saying.)
Chocolate Kisses – aww… This novel had the best romance!
Ummm do I have to answer this one? I don’t read romance novels so I really couldn’t say. Does Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey count?
Gummy Spiders – eek! You had to check under your bed every night for a week after reading this scary one.
When I was a kid, Michael Hoeye’s Time Stops for No Mouse freaked me out! The bit at the end with the plastic surgery machine…*shudder*
George Orwell’s 1984 is also terrifying. Not “check under the bed” scary, but bloody scary nonetheless. I’ve read it multiple times and it still has the power to send my pulse racing and make me feel sick to my stomach.
Jumbo Lollipop – this took you ages to get through, but hey! You finished it!
The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco. I started this novel several times and was never able to get past the first few chapters. However, last year I sat down and persevered and I’m so glad that I did. It’s such an excellent read!
Cotton Candy – Admit it, you loved this when you were younger (you probably still do). Think children’s or MG fiction.
If you know me, this answer will not be a huge surprise…Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is my all time favourite children’s book. I’ve read it more than 100 times and I still have dreams about running amok in the factory. Cows that give chocolate milk, edible wallpaper, chewing gum meals…yes please!
