have you met my friend liko miller? she is the wife of doug and mother to faith and malik (beautiful beautiful children), a licensed massage therapist, a dedicated sibling and daughter who loves her family (she's the beach babe on the far left and those are all her lovely sisters i believe) and a really kind, generous, supportive friend who is always there to lend an ear and make you feel good. i am so glad i have gotten to know her and look forward to more of our adventures!
and now we will turn the time over to her :) for her book worm lists:
alrighty, so -- where do i start? being an english major doesn't necessarily mean that i just LOVE to read. when i was in college, the part i enjoyed most was the writing aspect of it. i'd kind of go to sparknotes and pinkmonkey as last resorts when i couldn't keep up with all the reading. but my passion for books was somehow rekindled in these past few years. my list isn't comprised of the most literary-awarded works, just some reading material i enjoyed or would like to read in the future.
some of my favorite books:
-anything by leo lionni
-the giving tree
-the island of the blue dolphins
-to kill a mockingbird
-one flew over the cuckoo's nest
-the diary of anne frank
-lord of the flies
-pride and prejudice
-the adventures of huck finn
-a portrait of the artist as a young man (kidding -- read it and TOTALLY hated it, along with 'heart of darkness', sorry people if you disagree)
i know, so original, right? and they're mostly young adult. but they're good.
books i'd like to read:
-the grapes of wrath (i know, i can't believe i haven't read it yet, either)
-gone with the wind (never even saw the movie)
-finnegan's wake (totally kidding)
-paradise lost (shoot me instead)
-harry potter (i know - i read the first one, though)
-lord of the rings (not because of the movies, but because my sister jessyca read them waaaay before all the movies were made and said they were all very well-written)
-the kite runner
-the count of monte cristo
-the scriptures (daily)
-the call of the wild
and any others you great people recommend.
