B is for .......

Can you guess???
This time around "B" is for Books!

I've been reading a few books via the Kindle app(Some good, some less good), and right now, I've barely got time to get this post in before it closes, because.... Eldest decided I needed to read
"The Hunger Games" ..... (If you've read them, you may know that they are difficult to put them down, if you haven't... clear your calendar a little before you start! Oh, and get your request in to the library well in advance~ we had to wait for weeks before a copy became available in our entire Library Consortium!)

Here are a few favorites of mine~
The first picture book that I ever purchased with my own money~ when I was 11, The Ship's Cat  (If I get the chance, I'll edit and add some pictures~ the illustrations are what drew me)

The first book that made me cry~ Rose in Bloom, by Louisa May Alcott ~ yep... I'm a sentimental bit of a thing....  If you've read it you may recall the scene I'm thinking of.

The first book I didn't finish the first time I decided to read it~I was far too young~ I think maybe 12 or so.... I did read it after high school, and while I found it depressing, it was a good book....

 The first set of books that gave me nightmares, but in an odd sort of way that might be a recommendation? (I have a habit of "Getting into" the books I read)~ They are very good stories, I'm just funny that way sometimes. (BTW, Eldest has read them, and they didn't give HER nightmares.... ;) )

 One of my favorite "Make you think" books from the past few years (Yes~ I am a lover of good fiction, regardless of whether it is intended for children, young adults or adults~ This is a short but very good read!) 

OK, I really need to get back to "Catching Fire," the second book in the series~
Let me know if you've read any of these, or what some of your favorites are! :)
