Jules Gabriel Verne is often referred to as the “father of sci-fi genre”, having authored such wonderful books as A Journey to the Centre of the Earth and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. In his book Around the World in 80 Days, Jules Verne narrates a tale of an extraordinary voyage undertaken by Phileas Fogg and Jean Passepartout. Phileas Fogg, the protagonist bets his companion £20,000 that he can circumnavigate the globe in eighty days. On this adventure, his companion is his emotional French valet Jean Passepartout. The two of them overcome a series of hurdles which present themselves in form of storms, natural disasters, kidnappings and of course the unyielding Inspector Fix of Scotland Yard in order to win the bet.

I admit, I frequently judge a book by it's cover, but if I didn't, there wouldn't be time for anything but reading. I usually trust my best friend when she gives me book suggestions, but I always read the book jacket or back cover anyway. I spend a lot of time on bookstore websites, looking for books to put on my "to read" list. I like books for teens, but not currently popular teen books (think 'Twilight'). Elizabeth Scott, Sarah Dessen, Simone Elkeles, etc.
