scott is my absolute favorite



anonymous asked:

What are the blog runners favorite works? :)


I’m a big fan of World War Z by Max Brooks. I think the style of writing and the depth of it is phenomenally well thought out, and the way it acts as a socio-political commentary is probably what makes it my favourite novel. The film made me vomit. I also like Lee Child, Mark Billingham, James Patterson, and similar authors (despite the odd forensic slip up) I’m also a fan of fantasy that plays with modern elements like firearms without being urban fantasy. At risk of sounding like a total Hipster, I generally prefer lesser known works to big, famous blockbuster works like TFIOS or The Hunger Games (though I acknowledge their popularity and understand why others enjoy them)

So, to list my favourites:

  1. World War Z- Max Brooks
  2. Bad Luck and Trouble- Lee Child
  3. Sabriel- Garth Nix
  4. Night of the Living Deadpool (Shut up, comics count)
  5. The King In Yellow- Robert W. Chambers


This is a ridiculously hard question, but fortunately I have a running Top 3 list.

1.  The Hobbit/The Lord of the Rings

2.  The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak

3.  The Drowned Cities by Paolo Bacigalupi

4.  The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

(Yeah, I put 4 because LOTR is kind of the default favorite above all else and I’m a cheater.)


I have to admit I read more fanfiction than actual books… Which I’m not ashamed of! So in no particular order….

The song remains the same- River Winters (supernatural and well over 100k)

End of me - Lyonene (supernatural)

The last guardians- lillelouis (chronicles of Narnia)

We two alone - shoreleave (Star Trek)

Counted among the traitors - Willowdryad (Narnia)

Digital Knights- astrorocket (digimon)

I’ve taken those from my favourites on fanfiction- some I haven’t read for a long time but at one time or another I’ve loved each of those stories.

Now onto books! 

  1. I’ve got your Number- Sophie Kinsella
  2. Stalker- Faye Kellerman
  3. Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich
  4. The Casual vacancy by J.K Rowling
  5. Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus - Rick Riordan

These are just a small selection! -S


I love almost every book I read (almost), but these 3 are ones that have really impacted me, in no particular order:

1) Frankenstein - Mary Shelley

2) Rebecca - Daphne du Maurier

3) The Book Thief - Marcus Zusak


Ah, it’s so hard to pick favorites! I don’t even really know how to choose… so here are 5 6 books I love, in no particular order:

1. The Great Gatsby- F. Scott Fitzgerald (This one is actually my absolute favorite)

2. The Book Thief- Marcus Zusak

3. Just Listen- Sarah Dessen 

4. An Abundance of Katherines- John Green

5. The Things They Carried- Tim O’Brien

6. Choke- Chuck Palahniuk


Other than my #1, this is about the hardest question ever, but let’s try…

1. Dracula - Bram Stoker

2. The Scarlet Pimpernel - Baroness Orczy

3. Shakespeare. Just… (almost) all the Shakespeare

4. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall - Anne Bronte

5. Hell House - Richard Matheson

6. The Lord of the Dark Fire (AKA Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit, The Dark Tower series, and the A Song of Ice and Fire series)


I like so many books. I really love a lot of the classics you read in high school - my three favorites are Fahrenheit 451, The Great Gatsby, and a tie between Their Eyes Were Watching God and The Catcher in the Rye. I read a lot of poetry books, and my favorites of those are Richard Siken’s Crush and Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends and Every Thing On It (a little story about this book: it was published 10 years posthumously and the first poem is called Years From Now, which goes: although I cannot see your face/as you flip these poems awhile/somewhere from some far-off place/I hear you laughing-and I smile. It still gives me these happy little chills even to this day.) 

I like a lot of YA fiction, too! Mostly Contemporary stuff. I’ll enjoy pretty much any John Green book you give me (Looking For Alaska is my favorite) and I loved Ned Vizzini’s It’s Kind of a Funny Story.

And last but not least, my two favorite series of all time are Harry Potter and Fullmetal Alchemist. 

Followers, this looks like a nice opportunity for y'all to tell us about your favorites. :)
