Oh well, almost made it halfway.....

Day 12 – A book you have been recommended by a friend or acquaintance.

One that is on my to read list, have not read it yet... It is apparently fabulous, and everyone I know who has read it, has loved it so....when I get a chance....

Day 13 – A book that makes you laugh.

OOOO this one was easy...one that is always guaranteed to make me laugh (and is therefore not suitable for reading while traveling to school, uni or work, as there may be snorting involved)....

Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.

Fabulous characters, nutty scenarios, snarky wonderful dialogue, and some of the weirdest and cleverest scenarios and jokes you will find. Hard to describe, it's basically Armageddon, with the characters ranging from angels and demons to withches with prophesy and normal people, and it's all done with biting, hysterical wonderful British humour, mischeif and at times pathos. It's *fantastic* and everyone should read it. *nods*

Day 14 – A book from your childhood.

I cheated *again* surprise, and have chosen a series. Anne of Green Gables. Oh how I wanted to Anne when I was little...although I seriously wanted Diana's long black curls rather than the titian hair, but I wanted to go to school on Prince Edward Island, and live in a farmhouse and wear pinafores...and...then again, pretty much every book I read made me want that.. even A Little Princess had me wanting to live in a London attic...

But the magic of Anne of Green Gables is that you grow up with Anne until you feel like she is one of your best friends. You know what she would say and how she would act, and she makes mistakes, learns and grows. The people in Avonlea are gorgeous as well...Gilbert, Dianna, Marilla, Matthew *sob*..all fabulous. Definitely a series that I will always remember and love. and re-read now and again :)

Coming soon...the next few days I missed....
