I love love love love love love love love love dragons! I don't like the ones that raze cities so much as the ones that live harmoniously with humans. I liked ones that are medium-sized (about the size of a horse or an elephant), not the ones that are so large they make the ground tremulous with every step. I prefer red, white, gold, or black for their scale color, bat or bird wings, minimal face and body spikes, and a beak or crocodile snout. There are many different types of dragons, but I like fire ones best. In Harry Potter, my favorite dragon is the Chinese Fireball.

It would have to be Little Bee. The second half of The Bell Jar was noisome while reading it with all the depressing parts. Catcher, though not terrible, didn't have that much to it. Bean Trees was so memorable that I had to think for a moment on what the 4th book was, which tells you how much I liked that book too. I did not stay impassive while reading any of them, but Little Bee tugged at my emotions in a moving, not crushing way.

Thinking retrospectively, I believe my favorite book was The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, which I read for summer reading. To use candor, the beginning of the novel was extremely boring, but after breaking through the rough start, it became an intriguing mystery novel full of brain-stimulating circumstances and quirky characters.

I like it because it makes me think about life and people and what I would do in Katniss's situation. I can't believe that so many people would acquiesce to the "hunger games," but reflecting on their government, I can see it is possible. They already had the gladiator battles in the olden days. The games are abject and terrible for the kids.
