A long time ago I opened a fotolog account (which is quite dead at the moment) called Obsessions. After a few posts showing my clothes, my lingerie and my dresses, I decided to do sth different. So I will start posting about what I like...my obsessions :D
I'm obsessed with reading. Since 2 I have developed some kind of huge adicction to read. I'm not the kind of person who reads just an only genre, but it's true that I love everything related to mistery and darkness. These books are the ones everybody should have in their bookshelves.
Dracula by Bram Stoker
The first "adult" book I read.I think I was 8 or 9 when it arrived at my hands and it's been one of my fave books since then. The way it's written (like diaries) was something really new to me and made me "connect" much more with the characters. The prologue was quite scary though but when I was a bit older I enjoyed it much more :D. And believe me, it's better than every "dracula" movie you've seen (well, except of Nosferatu by Murnau but I dont know a lot of people who have seen it...). So stop reading Twilight and that sort of vampire-teen-love stories lol
The Portrait of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
Another one who thrilled me so much when I read it. I suposse that everyone knows how it ends but if you havent sorry to spoil it lol.I was a bit sorry about Gray at the end but I suppose being so narcissistic and self-centered has a prize...I wouldnt have mind being in his pants for a while though. I still have to see the Ben Barnes and Colin Firth film...
American Pshycho by Breat Easton Ellis
Ok, a confession, Im a fan of bloody movies and this is the best next thing :D While the movie was a bit dissapointing (really soft in my opinion but with a wonderful Christian Bale in the role of Patrick Bateman) the book is absolutely gore and so descriptive that you can even feel the pain (i may have a problem...ahem) anyway, if you cannot stand that switch to "Less Than Zero" another great novel by Easton Ellis which is about young yuppies in the search for the easy living.
Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
What can I say? just read it. And dont feel guilty if you feel sorry for Humbert Humbert, he was a poor child too :)
Hollywood by Charles Bukowsky
Bukowsky...he had that touch to make entertaining and easy novels with some sort of dark background. this one is hilarious and talks about the whole industry of cinema and how hard making a movie could be
El señor de las tinieblas by Alberto Vazquez Figueroa
I dont know if this was translated into english but it was really great. It's the story of a doctor who wants to find the cure for cancer and it's willing to sell his soul to do it, literally. I really really enjoyed it, and cried a lot too :)
Ligeia by Edgar Allan Poe
Yep, that's the reason of my nickname. I read a long time ago but it has been my fave tale from him since then. Maybe because I felt identified...I dont know. Anyways, anything by Poe is woth reading so take a peek, you wont regret it.
And here I am reading one of the different versions I read from Poe's tales (it changes from translator to translator, yes I'm a freak lol) in my old room, and npe, I dont have a clue from where I got that pj and the socks were 0'5€ in El Rastro :DDD
I would be days writing about my fave books but for today its enough. I dont wanna bore you that much. Which are your fave ones??
