My top 10 books

Hell-o ghouls :)

It's been a while since my last confession... post, I meant post :P
I had a giveaway on my shop on facebook and there was a question 'what would you like to see on the blog'. I got many requests and ideas for posts and I'm going to make them happen depending on my time and interest in the subject.
 Many asked about my favorite books. I'm extremely picky when it comes to books so there's not a lot of variety, not because I'm not open to it but because I just don't like many things.
I love good horror and mystery novels and don't really have patience for anything else. I do love Tolkien but I'm not a fan of fantasy in general.
 Here's my top 10  (in no particular order). These are not only amongst my favorite but they also influenced me and stayed in my heart for many ears.

  1. Christine - Stephen King 
  2. The long walk - Stephen King
  3. It - Stephen King
  4. The Stand - Stephen King
  5. The Lord of The Rings (+Silmarillion)- J.R.R. Tolkien
  6. Dracula - Bram Stoker
  7.  The woman in white - Wilkie Collins
  8. Wuthering Heights - Emilie Bronte
  9. 1984 - George Orwell 
  10.  Interview with a vampire - Anne Rice 
There are many more that I like, these are just a few of my favorites. In any case, I'm obsessed with Stephen King and it was hard not to make the whole list with just his books hahaha. I have about 90% of his books, at least 80% of them I've red already. My collection is at about... 60 books (in Spanish, English and Romanian). His books were there for me in my toughest times and helped me a lot. I can't begin to tell you what they mean to me.
I started the Dark Tower books recently but still have a lot to catch on.
 Part of the S.K. collection ^

Beside the mentioned styles and books I also like some poetry:  the classics E.A. Poe, Lord Byron and Persian (sufi) poetry (ex. Rumi)
I like some spiritual books too, mainly Osho and zazen related stuff.
