10 Day You Challenge Day 7

Hello and welcome to Day 7 of the 10 Day you Challenge and today it is 4 books.

1. The Scarecrows by Robert Westall

Now I first read this book when I was a teenager and I loved it and have read it more times than I care to remember since then. Somehow it became my security blanket book that whenever life was becoming too much I would sit and read it to escape for awhile.

2. The Vanished Man by Jeffrey Deaver

I bought a copy of this book in a charity shop to read on a holiday many years ago and I was hooked from the first page onwards! The story is about a serial killer who uses magic tricks to kill people and again this is a book that I have read and re-read quite a few times!

3. Fifty Shades of Grey
OK so I was unsure about adding this one to the list but then I thought why not!! I have read all three books in series and whilst it isn't the most clever of prose there is something about the storyline that captivated me (and no not just the sex!!!). What struck me about this book was that everyone was reading it and reading it openly in public and of course we all knew what the book was about!! I must admit that by the third one I started to skip some of the sex scenes as it grew repetitive but ultimately I liked it for the love story and romance (its the old romantic in me!!)

4. Hamlet- Shakespeare
Whilst this is a play rather than a novel I still wanted to include it as of all of Shakespeare's plays this is my absolute favourite. I first studied it at A Level where I got the chance to see a young Kenneth Branagh as Hamlet and then studied it again during my degree. I was even lucky enough to see David Tennant as Hamlet at the RSC an experience I shall never forget.

So there you have it and as you can see I like quite a diverse range of books and if I could I would have listed more as I love to read!!
