Your sack's magic, right? Can I just have a library? No? Oh :(
If you're feeling generous, I bought eBooks of Some Girls Bite (Chloe Neill/Chicagoland Vampires) series, and the Bloodhound Files (D.D. Barant) books. I'd love Love LOVE to have these as real books... because I want to lend them to my friends and make them read them, too! I'd LOVE a copy of A Million Suns, too, and maybe A Touch of Power (Maria V. Snyder)?
If you're feeling really, REALLY generous, and really, really magic, any chance you could make the fifth Nalini Singh Guild Hunter book come out early? And Biting Cold, by Chloe Neill? And Rapture, by Lauren Kate? And Bitterblue, by Kristin Cashore? And... XD
P.S. I left milk and cookies. If they're missing, follow the trail or crumbs. there, you'll find Cleo.
P.P.S. Move quick, she might decide to eat you, too.
Twilight, Stephenie Meyer
Okay, okay, you've see this everywhere, right? But I'm really, really grateful for Twilight. Twilight for me, as for many of you, was a gateway drug to my obsession with reading as an adult. Throughout my life, I've had a few books that have hooked me on reading, but this was before I knew what a book blog was, or Goodreads or Amazon was around, so it lasted for a while, and--while I've always enjoyed reading--Twilight came at a point in my life where I was able to go 'hang on, I want to read more stuff like this!', and had the tools to be able to find that stuff. I have huge thanks and love to my BFF for lending my Twilight, and sending me spiralling into addiction.
Dead Until Dark (Sookie Stackhouse #1), Charlaine Harris
My BFF bought this one for me. She hadn't read these books, but thought I'd like them. Boy, was she right. This book switched me on to adult PNR/UF, and I've never looked back. I owe my love of Jeaniene Frost, Nalini Singh, and hey, just about every other 'grown up' book to Dead Until Dark, and my fave BFF.
The Graveyard Book, Neil Gaiman
I can't articulate how very much I adore Neil Gaiman. No, really, I can't. I'm overwhelmed. So I shan't. I'm just going to tell you all that if you haven't read anything by him, do. Start with this, or Stardust. Thanks to MY AWESOME MUM for lending me this. It was my first Gaiman book.
The Hitchikers' Guide to the Galaxy, The late, the great, Douglas Adams
Thanks, Dad. To this day, ask me what my favourite book is, and I'll (usually) answer with Hitchikers. I remember re-reading Hitchikers' on the train a few years ago with tears in my eyes from trying to repress the laughter.
