Lizzie the Librarian

**For the record, I was a librian. I worked at the Cal Poly Library during college. It was an awesome job for a student and helped pay the bills! My mom gave me the nickname "Lizzie the Librarian" complete with glasses and nerd voice...

Favorite books

warning: I'm a series girl... guess I like things that last longer

Pride and Prejudice
by Jane Austen

Yes, I know this is a picture of the recent movie remake, but I have to admit I love the movie more than the book. I have seen the movie probably twenty times. No joke. My love of this story started in high school when I chose to write my senior thesis on Pride and Prejudice and Romantic Period Artists. I started by watching the movie and don't think I actually read the entire book until later in my life. I've also read this awesome version of the story:

It was a good, I'll call it, translation, of the story that was an easy read! Check it out!


The Hunger Games Trilogy
by Suzanne Collins

My good friend from high school recommended these AMAZING books to me. She said that if I liked Harry Potter, I'd like these. I immediately downloaded the first book onto my Kindle and was hooked in about 3.2 seconds! I read all three books in about a week and a half! Needless to say, my friend was right, I loved them! I even talked about them so much that Marc just had to see what was up. Those were the first books he's read in a looooooong time (besides textbooks).

 That was all before I saw the trailer to the first movie. The first 2 movies were amazing! I can't wait for the 3rd. 

Harry Potter
by J.K Rowling

This all started with a mother-daughter book club that my mom and I were a part of when I was in elementary/junior high school. It was our turn to choose the book and we chose none other than Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone! This was all before they became the epic series they are today. So I consider myself an "original" fan. Of course, the movies are good too, but nothing beats those books. It's hard to cram 500 pages of detail into an hour and a half...


by Stephanie Meyer

There, I admitted it. Yes, I am a Twlight fan. But only a recent one. My sister read all of these when they were being released and kept trying to get me to read them, but I was in revolt. For some reason, I felt the need to revolt against this teenage love story. I had just finished the Hunger Games and was looking for another addicting series, (plus I watched on the movies one day when I was sick in bed and there was a marathon on TV) so I gave in to Twilight. And there I was again, not moving for hours on end because I was lost in the pages of this mesmerizing tale of love - oh ya, and vampires and werewolves.

I'm almost shameful to admit that I also LOVE the movies... this too, took a long time (I think they're an acquired taste) but I have officially seen them all multiple times and can't get enough.
