So. I'm slipperbunny. I live in Finland, I'm 24 and I have this blog so I can tell you all how much I love books, comics and reading. I'm also a bookcrosser and I have another blog for everything that isn't related to reading (http://the-feels-the-laughs.tumblr.com/).If you have any questions then ask away. =)

The Blue Fairy Book by Andrew Lang

He smiled, too, his smile that changed his whole face. Once - before she got to know him - she’d thought he was ugly, with his many-times-broken nose and harsh features and scars, his thick mutton chop sideburns and those dark hooded eyes that threatened so many people. Now she knew better. He looked like himself, and she loved him, and she could stare at his face for hours and not get bored. He looked better to her than anyone else in the world ever had.

Even though I’m only fourteen, I know what I want, I know who’s right and who’s wrong, I have my own opinions, ideas and principles, and though it may sound odd coming from a teenager, I feel I’m more of a person than a child—I feel I’m completely independent of others.

16.OTP
I don’t have many OTP’s so this one was easy. The first time I “met” Eric I knew that he should be the one who’s with Sookie. Probably because I hated Bill and Eric was REALLY hot. And now I made myself sad because Sookie Stackhouse series is over. =(

Maybe time didn’t heal wounds exactly, but it gave you a kind of armor, or a new perspective. A way to remember with a smile instead of a sob.

15. Heroine
Sorry about the terrible picture. When I started reading the Unearthly trilogy I immediately liked Clara who’s the heroine in these books. She makes her own choises and she’s strong, interesting and honest. Clara is quite awesome.

To celebrate hitting 100,000 followers on Tumblr, each of us are posting our five favourite books. Here are Dan’s picks:

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger for the oft-imitated, never bettered story of a teenager fighting against the hypocrisy of adulthood.

A Visit From The Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan for a deeply affecting, interweaving collection of stories that show how time catches us all.

The Sisters Brothers by Patrick deWitt for the tragicomic tale of hitmen on the trail of a bounty. Cormac McCarthy meets the Coen Brothers. 

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson for one of the great voices of 20th century literature in his prime.

Lately I haven’t read that many comics but the ones I’ve read have been pretty great. Like Thor: God of Thunder 1 - The God Butcher. This is one of the most interesting stories of Thor that I’ve read in a while. There’s time travel, several Thors and a wonderfully terrifying bad guy.

14. Didn’t Finish
There are only about two books I haven’t finished and the reason is always that the book was too damn boring. I hate leaving books unfinished and I can read bad books but if it makes me fall asleep everytime I try to read it then I give up. I managed to read about 200 pages from Moby Dick before I gave up. It was just way too boring for me. And it made me avoid classics for a long time.

I never need to find time to read. When people say to me, ‘Oh, yeah, I love reading. I would love to read, but I just don’t have time,’ I’m thinking, ‘How can you not have time?’ I read when I’m drying my hair. I read in the bath. I read when I’m sitting in the bathroom. Pretty much anywhere I can do the job one-handed, I read.

I should actually get up, eat and go for a run but I wanted to finish Blindsight first. I don’t usually read much science fiction but I like Peter Watts and his books. I actually saw him in Finncon last year and read his book Starfish before that. I like how Watts writes about humans and monsters but otherwise this book was kind of complicated. Good though. I think Peter Watts might be my favourite science fiction author.

But now I really have to get up.

12. I’m Reading This Next
After I finish Blindsight I’m going to read Me Bandy, You Cissie. I got it as a birthday gift a few years ago I think. And after that I’ll probably read those books under it.
