I like anything supernatural! That's my favorite genre. (Vampires, ghosts, witches, etc)
I like books that have chapters that end in a cliffhanger, so it makes me want to read more.
Pretty much, if I can picture what the characters look like, what their voices sound like, and what the places look like...it's an awesome book! :D
And I don't really care if you think I'm strange, I'm not gonna change, and I don't give a damn about my bad reputation! -Joan Jett, Bad Reputation 1980

I really enjoy to read. My favourites books are: Animal Farm and 1984 (Orwell), Millenium (Larsson), White Nights (Dostoievski), The Second Sex (Simone de Beauvoir), and various books of Murakami. My favorite genres are mystery and crime.
Should read, guys. It's nice and "open minds". :P


* Oh! And books of Saramago!!!

I used to read a lot, but since a couple of years I haven't touched many books... and I am really sad about it :(. I am not sure what's the reason, maybe I have become too impatient. But my favorite book used to be Douglas Adams' "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy". I have never read a book as funny like that! :D And I am also a big fan of Jules Verne. "The mysterious island" is one of my favaorites. It's just timeless.
My favorite genres are/were Fantasy (but not to generic plase), horror and especially historical adventures.

Right now I only read non-fiction books. We have a nice collection of all kind of books about art, marketing, cinema, wildlife, paranormal activities and history. I used to be a big X-Files fan, that's why I have many books about ghosts and UFOs... I don't believe in this stuff, but I really enjoy reading about it.

No, I won't add more body shapes, band shirts or sports trikots. Really.

My favourite book has to be The Traitor Game by B.R Collins. I just love the friendship towards these two, like in the name one of them is a traitor(or are they? *wink wink*) and the friendship is scattered around and it is just amazing! LOVE IT SO BADLY NEED IT FOREVER!!!!!!
Another book I love is The Bunker Dairy by Kevin Brooks. This book is brilliant and I love it so much, so much tension and the ending is to die for, you can literally die when the book is over. Like OMG....another book I need in my possession! :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love:
