There are many books I love as I love to read. Not everyone likes to read but I know many who do, for different reasons. Mine is, reading allows an escape from my mind, from my life and my problems. It lets me go on an adventure, feel sad, feel mad, feel love and then when the book is over, it's still in my heart. And I can allows go back and read it again. I plan on becoming a photgrapher and author and reading allows me to obtain a vast vocabulary of new words many people would not use on a day to day basis. I have many favorite books, most not people know about or even like.
1. "Rose Madder" by Stephen King
Rose madder is about a woman trying to escape from her abusive husband, also who is a cop. When she does, she meets a guy, finds a painting and the painting 'comes to life'. The piainting brings her an entirely new view and an entirely new world.This is my ultimate favorite book and favorite Stephen King book. It is also his least read book, with no movie.
2. "The Lake" by Richard Laymon
This isn't for everyone but it is a mystery. The Lake is about a woman who has a daughter, that has all the features of women a serial killer targets. There is a mystery wrapped in who the killer is, how to protect her daughter, who the family is of the killer. It may be a slow read at first but it really absorbs you once you get more into it. Warning, has lots of sexual content.
3. "The Rot and Ruin" series by Jonathan Maberry
This is a zombie series. It is about when life gets fucked up by zombies taking over. A group of lovers and friends fight to look for a way to live. They come across people they take in and people that they need to take out. Zombies take away the people they love. These books will leave you wanting to hit someone.
4. Looking for alaska by John Green
This may be a 'popular' or 'mainstream' book but it is very good. This young man falls in love with a young woman, and she leaves. Him and his friend look for her and find something they wish they didn't. I ended up crying a little, this is an emotional and intense book.
Those are some books I enjoy, and not because they're popular or I'm a girl. I love those books because they made me feel. These books were well written, to the point I read Rose Madder over twelve times, eventually the book fell apart. I read The Lake up to ten times, the spine fell apart. Books are an escape to another world. If you are looking for an adventure, another reality, read these.
