My recommended must read: Hitchhiker's Guide series by Douglas Adams

Happy Towel Day!
Douglas Adams stated in his tome, "Never go anywhere without your towel." On May 14, 2001, one of his fans, D. Clyde Williamson, posted a tribute to Mr. Adams including a proposal that a date two weeks after his passing should be observed as Towel Day.
May 25th continues to be observed annually as Towel Day as an ongoing tribute to Adams, who passed away on May 11th of that year.

Quotes:

In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

He felt that his whole life was some kind of dream and he sometimes wondered whose it was and whether they were enjoying it.

My absolute favourite piece of information is the fact that young sloths are so inept that they frequently grab their own arms and legs instead of tree limbs, and fall out of trees.

There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who most want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.


It is of course perfectly natural to assume that everyone else is having a far more exciting time than you. Human beings, for instance, have a phrase that describes this phenomenon, ‘The other man’s grass is always greener.’ The Shaltanac race of Broopkidren 13 had a similar phrase, but since their planet is somewhat eccentric, botanically speaking, the best they could manage was, ‘The other Shaltanac's joopleberry shrub is always a more mauvy shade of pinky-russet.’ And so the expression soon fell into disuse, and the Shaltanacs had little option but to become terribly happy and contented with their lot, much to the surprise of everyone else in the Galaxy who had not realized that the best way not to be unhappy is not to have a word for it.

For the longest time I would have said The Perks of Being a Wallflower without a second thought, but it's been years since the last time I read it, and I'm no longer a child so I can't see exactly how well it's stood up to the test of time. when I was in high school. I thought it was a very important story, but I feel that times have changed so much in the last ten or so years. so, idk

Harry Potter, hands down. True, I haven't read a lot of books recently ( I really should) but during my teenage years, I don't think I've read anything more gripping than HP.

I would say all works written by J.R.R Tolkien. Alas i'd love to read the book Snow Queen. I think it may have some good elements in its story.

John Dies at the End and the follow up book This Book is Full of Spiders! I Love David Wong and I'm super excited about his new book that came out not that long ago. I still need to read it, I'm just so far behind with all the other books I have that I need to read. >.<

The Time Travelers Wife - Audrey Niffenegger
Bloodsucking Fiends - Christopher Moore, and the books that succeed it: Bite Me and You Suck. This series is hilarious!! And they're pretty quick reads as well.
