How many blog posts have you written? This is my 477th post. I have enjoyed every single one. Some of course are better than others. Perhaps I was in a good writing mode (My writing ability is like my hair - usually out of control and ugly, but occasionally and quite randomly smooth and straight). Or perhaps it was a book or issue about which I was really passionate. I definitely have a few posts that stand out in my mind as the ones about which I am most proud.
Here are a few of my favorites:
I LOVE Twilight And I Am NOT ASHAMED!
-I wrote this post in response to the repeated embarrassed confessions by bloggers of enjoying Twilight. I was upset not only that anyone felt ashamed of being a Twilight fan, but why anyone should be ashamed of liking any book.
The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide by Stephenie Meyer
-Yes, another Twilight post on the list of favorites. Shocking, I'm sure. I took time off work to read the Illustrated Guide on the day it came out. I devoured it in a few hours and then came home and spent more than 2 hours writing this review. I was so happy with the Illustrated Guide and also so disappointed. Both emotions clearly come through my review. I'm particularly pleased that this review is the first review listed on Amazon for this book.
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
-I love this review partly because I loved the book so much. Since it's a literary novel, I tried to be more analytical and lyrical in my writing. I am not by nature a literary type of writer, but I think I did a better job in this than in many other posts.
