I read pretty much anything, from fantasy (City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett) to romance (Bared to You by Sylvia Day) to classics (Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad).  The only genres I don't read are self-help and comic books/graphic novels.

30 Day Book Challenge: Day 16 - Favourite Female Character

Tomorrow, When the War Began - John Marsden The Dead of Night - John Marsden A Killing Frost - John Marsden Darkness Be My Friend (The Tomorrow Series #4) - John Marsden Burning For Revenge - John Marsden The Night is For Hunting - John Marsden The Other Side of Dawn - John Marsden While I Live  - John Marsden Incurable  - John Marsden Circle of Flight - John Marsden

My favourite female character is definitely Ellie Linton from John Marsden's Tomorrow, When the War Began series.  I just love those books and have read them upwards of ten times each (always in order, so if I have a craving for Ellie then I have to read the whole series, not just an individual book from the series).  This series is another that I haven't read for ages and so haven't reviewed any of them because it's not fair to do a half-hearted review of such a fantastic series.  I think Marsden really captured some (not all) of the emotions teenagers would feel during such a traumatic time as the shock invasion of your country.  I wasn't so comfortable with his idea of teenage love and sex, but I am a bit prejudiced against any sex involving a teenage girl written by a middle aged man, it always weirds me out.
