Classic- Guest Natasha
When Viv asked for some guest posters to write about their classic book(s), I jumped at the chance! Woohoo!! Post on a Bestsellers blog? RIGHT ON!
But I’m discovering something about myself. I have a habit of jumping into the deep end with no lifejacket.
What on earth was I going to write about?
Then, I had a thought. I actually have two classics. The first is where I discovered my love of books and reading, and the second is how I discovered my love for paranormal books.
One of my only memories from when I was a young child was having my dad read to me. I had a ton of books, but there was one, THAT one that I would make him read over and over. It was a tongue twister, and I giggled every time he tried to twist his mouth around the riddles. What book you ask? It was Dr. Seuss’ Oh Say Can You See.
Said a book-reading parrot named Hooey, “The words in this book are all phooey. When you join them your lips will make slips and back flips, and your tongue may end up in Saint Looey!”
How can you not love the imagination, especially as a child, that went with this and many of his other books? Green parrots, a talking cat, one fish and two fish! Green eggs and ham!! Dr. Seuss inspired many a child. No dream was too big or impossible!
My next classic is one that people either love or hate. I was working at my local public library, and I was about 15 or 16, and my boss of all people introduced me to this series. They were filled with this brand new world, identical to ours, but there were vampires, werewolves, zombies, wererats, and necromancers.
Laurell K. Hamilton created a world that opened my eyes to possibility, a lot like Dr. Seuss now that I think about it. Why couldn’t there be these beings? And really? They were damn sexy! Imagine what I thought as Laurell continued the series! Woo damn!
Plus, there was this amazing, strong, courageous, flawed woman. She kicked butt, wasn’t afraid to get hurt, and always picked herself up. Sometimes gingerly!
I dreamed to be like Anita. I wanted that strength. I want to be strong and not have people walk all over me.
I still read Anita when I need a pick me up.
You can find me and my beginner blog at My Disorganized Ramblings. There I talk about the crafts that I attempt to do, the cooking I try to kill my husband with, and most importantly? The books that I devour!!! Oh, and I occasionally do a montage of my fur babies (my two kitties – Dot my girl and Dash my boy)
Tasha–you made me smile so hard! Thanks for being brave and impetuous enough to come and visit. Tasha is one of the readers I’ve had since the very beginning. She’s even had a ‘cameo’ in one book. :wink: To enter the contest today, either comment on your FAVORITE Dr. Seuss book, or you can talk about a strong woman character that you admire…or both!
