Ah…My First Love

That would be books, folks. Via Ottermatic, I found this awesome meme about the books you’ve read, haven’t read, tried to read and didn’t finish, or just couldn’t stand.

So here are the rules: bold what you have read, italicize what you started but couldn’t finish, and strike through what you couldn’t stand.

Hm. I notice that quite a few of the books on this list I’ve read I wasn’t really fond of. Eh. I found a lot of the English authors to be so depressing (Oliver Twist, y’all. My Lord, that was tedious.) But I loved Ayn Rand, despite her longwindedness (I mean, those novels could be classified as weapons.) But on the bright side, I have books aplenty on my list to read. And just for fun, I’m adding some books I’ve read that others may be interested in:

  1. The Bluest Eye (Toni Morrison)
  2. Tar Baby(Toni Morrison)
  3. The Third Life of Grange Copeland (This was Alice Walker’s first novel)
  4. The Color Purple (Alice Walker)
  5. Meridian (Alice Walker)
  6. Blues for Mister Charlie (James Baldwin; it’s a play)
  7. Fences (This is a play by August Wilson)
  8. Breath, Eyes, Memory (Edwidge Danticat)
  9. East of Eden (John Steinbeck)
  10. The Cat Ate My Gymsuit (Paula Danziger, eh…I think I spelled that correctly)

Ok. So now I’m in the reading mood…I’m going to make my Amazon wish list. Christmas is coming, y’know!
