Favorite Books, Authors, and Characters
Just a note, this is not a complete list. I like too many books to list them all!
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo
The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy - Actually, I like all of the Pimpernel novels I've read, but I'm not going to list them all.
Sanditon by Jane Austen and Another Lady - I like Austen's books, but this one is my favorite, probably because it's not exactly Austen's style!
The Complete Robot by Isaac Asimov - My favorite stories are "Liar!" and "The Bicentennial Man".
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury - The idea of burning books! Ugh.
The Westmark Trilogy - Westmark, The Kestrel, and The Beggar Queen by Lloyd Alexander.
Stargirl and Love, Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli.
Lloyd Alexander. I like almost all of his books that I've read. The Prydain Chronicles, The Westmark Trilogy, The Vesper Holly books, and various stand-alones.
Eilonwy, daughter of Angharad, daughter of Regat, Princess of Llyr. Yes, that's where my username comes from!
Quasimodo. He's sweet and sad. Esmeralda drives me crazy!
The Beast of Beauty and the Beast. Kind of similar to what I like about Quasimodo. He's a Prince Charming without the perfect good looks. What nice guy is Prince Charming handsome anyway? Oh, and I'm not really a fan of Disney's Beauty and the Beast. I much prefer the traditional story! But I do like the music.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak - It's not often that a book makes me cry...I had tears streaming down my faces through the last hundred pages of this one.
Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
The Girls of Summer by Jere Longman
Zero Regrets by Apolo Ohno
