This month, the starting book is Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray...
...which I've never read.
But, you know what else I've never read?
That's right! The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway. Who knew the author of one of my favorite books...
And did you know that The Great Gatsby was Fitzgerald's third book? Which, coincidentally, is the same number as my favorite Harry Potter book!
The Harry Potter series was very important to me as a young reader. Through this world, I learned just how much I loved fantasy. That led me to authors like Clive Barker.
During my first read through of Abarat, a movie called Stardust was being released. I loved the movie! But, as usual, the book was better.
And that was how I met my favorite author, Neil Gaiman. But Stardust wasn't my favorite of his books. That title belongs to Coraline. A 128 page children's book that gave my teenage butt nightmares for weeks!
And there you have it folks!
