I decided to join in and my first collection is just a small portion or my obsession, it is not fashion related and is something I have loved since I was about 3!
For as long as I can remember I have loved reading, but when I hit secondary school I really became obsessed, I was put into the lowest english groups because I struggled with spelling and grammar, they couldn't work out how such a avid reader couldn't spell, sometimes even simple words, it wasn't until my GCSE's that my then english teacher asked if I was dyslexic, and I still didn't get any help till I went to college, but I digress, the first collection I am going to show you is my passion for horror books, this started when I was about 11 and fell in love with point horror books, I very quickly progressed to stealing my mums copies of Stephen King books she had in the house and my obsession began.
So many people bash King for not being intellectual enough and the books being simple, but do you know what screw people like that I read books that I love, not to make me look clever or cool in the eyes of friends and commuters.
King makes me happy!
I have many other authors I love not all horror either, including Dean Koontz, Jasper Fforde, Raymond E Feist, but I love buying books so my collection can get ridiculous, I don't often donate books as I read them over and over, but I do buy my paper backs from charity shops as I destroy them :)
Here is my King collection, I have read almost every book he has written and own nearly all of them too, a some are missing from here that I have lent out, and some are in storage boxes so the official collection is quite a bit bigger.
I read my paperbacks so many times that by the time I am ready to replace them they are falling apart
the next 2 pictures show The Stand and IT which I am on 3rd or 4th copies of these ones have been read at least 6 times each now.
I call them well loved!
My biggest love of all his books are his Dark Tower series I waited years between books to finish the collection and squealed with joy when I found out his new book in this series will be release in April and that they are hoping to make a TV adaption and a film of it!
I have the comics and hard back graphic novel versions too!
Well that is one of my obsessions out in the open, my whole collection of books may have to be dragged out at some point!
Quite a few other Gorgeous bloggers are joining in the fun and showing us some of their obsessions go take a look at these too!
