About me: I'm a Catholic in love with my Faith. I am also a born reader. I think the first time I read a true book (beyond Arthur and the Berenstien Bears) was when I was 7... it was 'The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe'.
Reading Interests: Oh dear. I'm all over the place when it comes to books. I particularly like fantasy (especially classic fantasy, like Lewis and Tolkien), historical fiction, and satire (I'm probably the only teenager who has actually liked 'Animal Farm') Oooh, and I love Chesterton. LOVE Chesterton. And Regina Doman. I think the only generes I avoid are horror books, and those disgustingly mushy vampire novels that everyone raves about.

Cover ArtThe merchant of Venice
by Shakespeare, William, 1564-1616
What happens when you cross a greedy Jew, a woman who cannot marry the man of her choice, a foolish but brave and loyal man, and a merchant who loses everything? Here's the punchline... wait for it... You get Shakespeare. Why isn't anyone laughing? This is a good book, and it's funny! C'mmon, give it a chance!   posted Oct 14, 2010 at 6:42PM

Cover ArtWaking Rose : a fairy tale retold
by Doman, Regina.
*fangirl scream* FISH!!!! This is one of the best books in the FTN series. However, there are adult themes throughout (handled very well), and I would not recommend this book for younger readers.   posted Oct 14, 2010 at 6:39PM

Cover ArtCharlie and the great glass elevator : the further adventures of Charlie Bucket
by Dahl, Roald.
Who said that sequals are always worse than the first book?!? I mean, who wouldn't like pernicious kinids threatening to take over the world (actually, they're just taking over an American space hotel, but that's beside the point. It's still just as cool.)   posted Oct 7, 2010 at 7:32PM

Cover ArtCharlie and the chocolate factory
by Dahl, Roald.
The movies SO did not do justice to this book. Is it wrong to like childrens' books at my age? I hope not.   posted Oct 7, 2010 at 7:28PM

Cover ArtThe lord of the rings
by Tolkien, J. R. R. 1892-1973.
Why do I like it? - Hobbits with hairy feet - Orcs with ugly faces - Dark Lords - Struggles - Failures - Successes - Catholic morals and themes which pervade the whole book!   posted Jul 22, 2010 at 3:14PM
