Gone with the wind is one of my favorite books, I've read it numerous times. It clocks in at 1011 pages. To me, it doesn't seem that long because it is so well written. Other long favorites of mine are the last few Harry Potter books (I'm sure everyone will have that answer.) I just finished A Dance with Dragons, the fifth Game of Thrones/Song of Fire and Ice book and it was 1041 pages. It was my least favorite of all the Game of Thrones books. They're all over 1000 pages, but they are all really good. I never want them to stop. DO YOU HEAR ME GEORGE?! The Lord of The Rings are awesome, but technically those are three 400 page books. Anything by Alexandre Dumas is amazing, like The Count of Monte Cristo (1200 pages, wtf?) and The Three Musketeers (which depends on your edition but is almost exactly 600 pages).
1. If you were free to just hop in a car or a plane and go, where would you go?
I would go to Colorado to visit my aunt. I missez her.
2. What's your most recently read favorite book?
I finished A Dance with Dragons by George RR Martin a few nights ago, and it was awesome. Obviously. George is still evil. My favorite characters are still alive. For now. (I'm not keeping my hopes up that this will continue.) One did actually end the book being stabbed, so he might be a goner.
3. What's your favorite Spring break memory?
I never did anything fancy for Spring break, so nothing much.
4. What do you put in your child's Easter basket?
My grandmother always made our baskets herself, instead of buying the ready-made wrapped in plastic ones. She didn't make the actual basket herself, she just filled it herself. So I'm going to do the same with CJ. I'll probably buy a basket, then go to Target and the dollar store and fill it up with goodies. I'm also going to fill eggs (with something besides chocolate since that will kill him) and hide them. Can't wait!
5. Do you get a summer haircut?
Usually, but my goal this year is to go an entire year without cutting my hair. I'm probably going to have it permed around my birthday (in June), so we shall see.
Sooooooooooooooooo much YA. Almost too much. It is fine if they are well-written and good stories, but it seems like everyone wants to be the next Harry Potter or the next Twilight. Which brings me to the next trend. Too much paranormal romance. If well-written, they can be awesome. If not, they are just horrible. I can't even read paranormal romance anymore. I think had I been a teenager when this trend started, I would've been all over it. But now it just annoys me. A trend I really like, are books for kids that adults can enjoy. Harry Potter is the best example obviously, but then there's Hugo Cabret and some others. So I'd be ok with more of that.
