Top 3 books I’d read over and over and over again
It’s gonna be Christmas vacation soon, and I realized that I don’t want to spend my two weeks watching movies and catching up on my favorite series. Also, I figured that if maybe I reread my favorite books, it will cure my dry spell when it comes to writing. So here it is, my top three re-reads for the whole Christmas break:
The Lover’s Dictionary by David Levithan. This is officially my favorite book of all time. Told from the guy’s perspective, it made me see love and relationships in a whole new level. I asked some of my friends to read it and some of them weren’t able to appreciate it, saying that it didn’t make any sense and that it was better off in the dumpster. But come on! Who doesn’t like words explained through situations and written in a dictionary-like format? I mean, where else can you see that? One word: Wow.
Edith Hamilton’s Mythology: Timeless tales of Gods and Heroes. I remember my first copy looked was just as raggedy as this one, and by the time I finished reading the whole thing, some of the pages were torn up and that only tape was holding the whole book together. And if only I had the time, I’d read that same ol’ tattered book again and again.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. Set in the beautiful city of Paris, I instantly fell in love with this book. I was sucked in, as if I was actually there and that I actually knew the characters. For a moment there, I wish I knew someone like St. Clair and I felt Anna’s pain when she saw him kissing someone else. Stephanie Perkins, indeed, did a great job on this one.
So there it is, what’s your must-reads this Christmas break? :)
