Day 28 #MarchoftheWriter

Book you’ve read the most.

I would love to grab all the covers of my favourite books, but that would be going against the copyright rules. And although I love breaking them, won’t be doing it this time.

So let’s start with the woman who inspired me to become an author. I didn’t just go to one book, as I have and love her full series of rebel teen, books.

S.E.Hinton

Mr J R R Toilkien For Lord of The Rings, the Hobbit and his smaller shorts stories and novellas.

My fantasy, https://www.barnesandnoble.com/s/Phillip%20Pullman and his trilogy, His Dark materials

A lady not as well known, but what an amazing tetralogy Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. A MUST for fantasy PNR books.

You’ve all heard or seen the movie and then TV adaption of Cassandra’s Claire’s, The Mortal Instruments. But it’s her other series that stood out for me. Check out the trilogy of His infernal Devices.

Then there are the Best-selling authors that have written hundreds of books – slight exaggeration there. lol

Dean Koontz books have pride of place on my bookshelf. Door to December– has never left me, Totally chilling. Short stories in Strange Highways

Some of James Herbert’s books have become classic horror films, such as Rats and The Fog. But the book I have and has stayed with me is this one

And although I’m not a true fan, his book Neverwhere showed me the true meaning of Fantasy.

Fav classics.

Everyone has their fav books that will stay with them forever. For some reason, they become the only books that are in hardback or paperback and have pride of place on my books shelf.

Here are my top five in no particular order

S.E Hinton and her rebel YA dramas, such as the classic, The Outsiders will always have a place in my heart it was her book, The Outsiders in particular, that made me want to write my own story and become an author.

It was these next three collections of fantasy books that had me binging on Fantasy PNR . And writing my own YA fantasy PNR, Illlusional Reality.

You may have heard of the film and TV series The Mortal Instruments. But I bet you never heard of ClockWork Angel, ClockWork Prince snd Clockwork Princess. Absolutely amazing books.

Only one book was turned into a movie and it starred Nicole Kidman. But it flopped so they never made the other two. These books stretched my imagination thought to the limits. Now it’s a major UK tv show and I’m hoping they stayed close to the original book, as the storyline is epic.

Judge me all you like I thought the books were fabulous. Amazin world being and characters. Kudos for that JK.
