12. whatever tickles my fancy.
13. a fictional book. - as marcia pointed out, this should probably be a fiction book. which is a shame because i can come up with many fun titles for fictional books. right now i'm thinking of one about zombie unicorns. wtf? anyway, yes....a fictional book. Cat's Eye by Margaret Atwood. It was my first favorite book when I was fourteen. I turned part of it into a monologue for drama class. And I read it many times and made my friends read it. It is part of who I am and probably a big influence on my writing.
14. A nonfictional book. Here we go again. Wasted by Marya Hornbacher I have read over and over and over again. It's brilliant. I kind of want to make the world read it, but then every time I suggest someone read it, it seems to trigger their eating issues so then I don't want anyone to read it. It didn't actually have that effect on me, despite the fact that reading Skin Game by Caroline Kettlewell (sp?) made me start cutting again like a bitch. Anyway I wanted to really connect with and love Hornbacher's bipolar memoir in the same way but it didn't happen. Another memoir you don't hear much about but ..... okay two actually.... Passing For Normal by Amy Wilensky which is about Tourettes (not the kind you're thinking of probably) and OCD....which if you feel freakish at all about anything is just the book to read!!! changed my outlook in a lot of ways. Also, Just Checking by Emily Colas about OCD I feel I could have written! And of course Prozac Nation by Elizabeth Wurtzel I'll love forever. It was there when I needed it. Twice.
