Guest Post: Kare from Epic Book Nerd

Hey There,
So my BBF (Best Blogger Friend) Katie asked me to guest post here on her blog [THANKS KATIE]!!!! I was trying to figure out what I should write about and books came to mind (imagine that!). I am a HUGE fan of lists so I will provide you with a few.

1. A list of why I like books :P

To me books are:

A time machine
(The Book Thief, To Kill a Mocking Bird, and Night)

A magic show
(Harry Potter, My Fair Godmother , and City of Bones)

A portal to another world
(The Chronicles of Narnia, The Iron King, and Now You See it)

A key to the past
(Revolution, Nobody’s Princess, and A Great and Terrible Beauty)

A window to the soul
(The Mocking Birds, I am the Messenger , and By the time you read this I’ll be Dead )

A vision of what could be
(The Hunger Games, Inside Out, and The Forest of Hands and Teeth)

A non-stop Laugh
(Hex Hall, Demonglass, and Just one Wish,)

A story between a boy and a girl
(The Oracle of Dating, Love Undercover, and At first Sight)

A view through a boy’s eyes
(Infinity, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, and The Giver)

2. What books I am waiting for in 2011

Wither by Lauren DeStefano
Ripple by Mandy Hubbard
Supernaturally by Kiersten White
Rebel Bell by Rachel Hawkins
The Emerald Atlas by John Stevens
The Liar Society by Lisa and Laura Roecker
Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier
The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney
