18th: Made me laugh in public – As you can tell from my recent review of The Rosie Project, this book made me laugh out loud in public more than once.
19th: Made me cry in public – The Dark Tower by Stephen King.
20th: Favourite bookworm in literature – Matilda by Roald Dahl.
21st: One where I fell in love with the narrator – I wouldn’t exactly call it love, but I found the idea of Death narrating The Book Thief to be pretty unique.
22nd: Makes me want to travel – Every time I re-read The Thorn Birds I always thin it would be marvellous to go and visit an Australian ranch like Drogheda.
23rd: Best book on diversity – Small Island by Andrea Levy.
24th: A hidden gem – North and South by John Jakes. I love this series, and I know I’ve probably recommended it before, but it fits this category really well, so here it is again,
25th: Most memorable food/drink moment in literature – The whole of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, especially the moment with the chewing gum which is an entire meal in one. Just imagine how convenient that would be!
26th: Clocks go back. Best book on time travel – 11/22/63 by Stephen King. I loved this book and I’ll definitely read it again.
27th: Favourite epigraph – I love the verse about the bird with the thorn in its breast at the beginning of The Thorn Birds.
28th: Has the best advice – It’s a long time since I read the book, but I can remember thinking The Carrie Diaries was a good read in terms of life advice for young people.
