I’m trying to get back on the wagon, guys! One of my 2013 Blogging Resolutions was to blog more often, and in the past four weeks I’ve completely and utterly failed to do so. I explained some of the reasons for this in my last post, but none of those reasons were excuses – the real excuse is laziness + apathy. But I’m determined to break out of the funk! I can do it!
(I also resolve never to use the term “funk” in that context again. It should only apply to music. Specifically, BBC 6 Music’s amazing Sunday Funk & Soul Show. Don’t judge me.)
This week, the ladies at The Broke and The Bookish want to know the top ten books that we all recommend the most. I’m an unrepentant book pusher. That said, though, I’m also really reluctant to recommend books that mean a lot to me – there’s too much at stake. What if the person doesn’t like it? What if – even worse – they have no opinion on the recommendation whatsoever? How could I ever trust their taste again?! I don’t want to have to unfriend people over a book in real life, but I will.
Without further ado and in no particular order, here are 10 books that I’m likely to throw at you if you come within a ten-foot radius:
1. Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman
I make no bones about my love of this book. So far, I think the only person I’ve successfully pushed it on is my boyfriend, but he liked it! Read the whole thing in a day and a half. But I haven’t pitched it to a lot of other people. I’m not sure why…
