My favourite books
So, what can be said about books? Ah, books... Unfortunately, there are not enough young people who like to read in England. It seems like an unpopular hobby; something that isn’t ‘cool’. I firmly disagree with this. Books have the ability to take you to another world, to stimulate your imagination and transport you to places you’ve never been before. Books can be long, short, big or small. Books can have a mixture of pictures and hundreds upon hundreds of words. Books can be exciting, scary, thrilling and confusing. But, above all, books can be interesting.
So, what’s your favourite book? Actually, that’s a silly question. How daft of me. How can you only have one favourite book in the whole world? For me... a favourite series has to be the Harry Potter series by J.K.Rowling. I don’t have a favourite book out of the seven, but I do have preferences as to which I most enjoy reading. My favourite book is the third one. I’m not completely sure why; I suppose it’s because in this book Harry finally feels like he has a true family. My least favourite book is probably one of the latter ones, either the sixth or seventh book. Both of these books, to me, feel like they don’t have the same ‘magic’ as the previous ones.
Another of my favourite series is His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman. This trilogy is all about the adventures of a young girl called Lyra and her daemon, Pantalaimon. It is filled with adventure, despair, intrigue and suspense; this is one of the main reasons why it appeals to me so much. There is such a variety of subjects and stories that the books were very difficult to put down when I first read them. They still are to this day in fact.
