The Primal Blueprint Cookbook: Primal, Low Carb, Paleo, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free and Gluten-Free (Primal Blueprint Series)

The Primal Blueprint Cookbook: Primal, Low Carb, Paleo, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free and Gluten-Free (Primal Blueprint Series) - Mark Sisson;Jennifer Meier I love these recipes and the concept behind it. I just had to take off one star because there are very few dishes that I can prepare everyday. A lot of these, especially the ones I like takes effort to prepare so it's kinda hard to follow for a daily diet.Just got this eBook but I've already tried some of the recipes in it before. I have to say, all (and I mean ALL) of those that I've tried are great so I'm pretty excited about trying out the rest. I know now what I'm going to do for the upcoming holidays :D

The Empress's New Lingerie and Other Erotic Fairy Tales: Bedtime Stories for Grown-Ups

The Empress's New Lingerie and Other Erotic Fairy Tales: Bedtime Stories for Grown-Ups - Hillary Rollins This is a book waiting to happen. If people can talk about how dark fairy tales are with all its plotting of revenge and murder why not talk about an orgy between a woman and seven men who lives in the woods, eh? It's a pretty cute concept and could be very amusing in some parts. A longer version of this type of narrative may come off as dragging so the length is fine but a couple stories may be too short and under developed. Moment of truth ... if no one had given this to me I probably would have passed on it and that's not such a bad thing.

Tales of Beedle the Bard £daisy]

Tales of Beedle the Bard £daisy] - J.K. Rowling Wasn't expecting much from this book ... which is a good thing, heh. It was meh.

The Dalai Lama's Book of Wisdom

The Dalai Lama's Book of Wisdom - Dalai Lama XIV Another present from years ago. I got the version printed in 1999. I think the most fun part about this book is you could flip over to any page and find words to ... chew on.

The Elements of Style (4th Edition)

The Elements of Style - William Strunk Jr., E.B. White The book everyone should own a copy of.

If Life Is a Bowl of Cherries, What Am I Doing in the Pits?

If Life Is a Bowl of Cherries, What Am I Doing in the Pits? - Erma Bombeck Someone asked me why I love her so much when she wrote all of these even before I learned how to read (some even before I was born). I just find her really hilarious. The first Erma Bombeck book I read. After this I was hooked!

Emma (Penguin Classics)

Emma - Jane Austen, Fiona Stafford Probably the Jane Austen book that I like the least but only because I didn't like the main character :p

Cujo (Spanish Edition)

Cujo (Spanish Edition) - Stephen King Ironic and sad. This is the first Stephen King book I've read. It's the book that made him one of my favorites ... it made me fear dogs even more, too.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter - Seth Grahame-Smith The book is actually pretty cool. There's not much depth in it but the concept rocks and it kinda brings back the bad-ass image of vampires after Twighlight.

The Colour Of Magic

The Colour of Magic  - Terry Pratchett One of those funny YA books you'd want to read over and over. And over. And then maybe a few more times.

Delta of Venus

Delta of Venus - Anais Nin Since I'm an erotica snob, I only want to read it from ... the most controversial. Lol. I'm not sure this should be recommended to anyone unless you're a responsible reader and only reading it out of curiosity ... or you have an open mind. This is one of the sickest books you could ever get your hands (and eyes) on. And I mean sick! Forget Fifty Shades of Grey. BDSM is sooooooo tame compared to this. Anais Nin got away with incest, bestiality and even pedophilia. I think if anyone wrote anything about that these days their community will throw them even before they get published. Despite all that ... the way she writes keeps you reading and I am a fan of her.

The Kite Runner

The Kite Runner - Khaled Hosseini If the movie made you feel sad, you might want to hang yourself out of depression after reading this lol. Kidding aside, I cried in a lot of chapters in this book, mainly because you know stories similar to this really happened or is even happening still. The story and the way it's told is so real.

Frankenstein; Dracula; Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (Signet classics)

Frankenstein / Dracula / Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde (Signet Classics) - Robert Louis Stevenson, Bram Stoker, Stephen King I had this exact book in high school and remember writing a review for it for English class. I liked it and loved that Stephen King wrote an introduction since I worshiped him in HS. I lost my copy of this book, it's one of those that people asks to borrow and never return. :(

Motherhood: The Second Oldest Profession

Motherhood: The Second Oldest Profession - Erma Bombeck This is one of my favorite books of hers. I lost my copy, though. Most of my Erma Bombeck books were hand-me-downs from my dad and I absolutely love her. I remember I cried a bit towards the end of this one when she wrote that "If I had my life to live over" piece. I read this a long time ago but I'd love to read it again. I need to find my dad's copy.

Every Which Way But Dead (The Hollows, Book 3)

Every Which Way But Dead - Kim Harrison I read The Tommyknockers back in HS, it's my first SF book and the second Stephen King book I read (first being Cujo). I can still remember the most of it lol. Generally a good book.
