Day 13: Your Favourite Writer – Dr. Seuss

See, now a cool person would put a clever little rhyme or something to set up this post… but I’m not cool, so… ONWARDS TO THE NUMBER TEN.

  1. Dr. Seuss
    Honestly, if you don’t like Dr. Seuss… well you should love Dr. Seuss. Why? WHY YOU ASK?! ‘Cause he’s an inspiration, a teacher, and probably the most creative guy ever, next to Shakespeare, when it comes to literature. While Shakespeare did break rules, and created more than a thousand words that are in our present day dictionary, Dr. Seuss created a world for children and adults alike that is equally enjoyable, sans death, tragedy, fights, etc. Plus he created hundreds, maybe even thousands of words that AREN’T in our present day dictionary, and that makes him even cooler.

    “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…” – Oh, The Places You’ll Go

    With books like Oh, The Places You’ll Go Dr. Seuss described, basically, life. With everything around us – people judging us, parents choosing our paths for us – Dr. Seuss points out that we are individual and we can choose our own futures.
    In his book, The Lorax, Dr. Seuss saw the world for what it was before the majority of the world figured it out. He saw how destructive human kind could be to nature, to the earth, to the trees. And he made a valid point when he wrote:

    “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
    Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” – The Lorax

    Dr. Seuss is a legendary author who managed to reach out to audiences of all ages with his words and he remains as one of my favourite authors/writers of all time.

Annie Get Your Gun - Female sharpshooter

The first female sharpshooter I thought of was Ringer. I really liked the 5th Wave, and this sampler is what sold me on the series. I still haven't read the second or third book though...

Made me think of the Diamond Sisters covers with the geometric design. So of course I pulled out my copy and snapped a picture haha.

King and I - Royal and a commoner
-
Doesn't a killing machine count as a commoner? For the sake of this post, I'd say yes. Really loved this book, but I was kind of sad that it was turned into a series... I hope it's not simply because the book did well that it got a sequel...
