Recently I saw a charming, yet quirky little movie called Moonrise Kingdom. In the movie, the lead female, Suzy, is an avid reader.
I loved the covers of her books and they seemed so fascinating. So much so, that when I got home, I looked them up to see if they were real books (sadly, they are not). I particularly was interested in reading "Disappearance of the 6th Grade". Here are 3 of Suzy's books:
Suzy's books got me to thinking about other fictitious books that I would like to read. The first one that came to mind was George McFly's book - "A Match Made in Space"
Another one I would really love to get my hands on is the "Handbook for the Recently Deceased"
Another fictitious book that would be quite and interesting read would be "How I Did It"
This book was written by Victor Frankenstein (that is Fronk-en-STEEN to you) from the movie "Young Frankenstein" - one of the funniest movies ever written. I love the simplicity of the title - he is just saying "Yep, here is what I did to create a monster"
As a BIG fan of the TV show "Castle", I always wanted to read a book written by Richard Castle. He is the title character, who happens to be a James Patterson type writer and he follows the female lead detective, Kate Beckett around and he helps her solve cases. He is a personal friend of the mayor, which is why he is allow to do this. His series of books are about a fictional cop, Nikki Heat and she is loosely based on Kate. I really wanted to read his first book - "Heat Wave"
Well guess what? You really CAN read his first book and three others, you can buy them on Amazon !
I have read "Naked Heat" and it was really good - a bit strange at first reading a book written by Richard Castle, who is not even a real person but it was fun reading it and imagining that he modeled these after Kate - very cool !
Of course no fictitious book collection would be complete without Kramer's "Coffee Table" book about well...coffee tables.
And last, but not least, there are two more fake books I would like to read by none other than Brian Griffin. Yes, they are written by a cartoon dog that walks, talks and lives his life as if he were human.
The first one is his famous novel that he had been working on for years..."Faster Than the Speed of Love"
Poor Brian, his novel was not what you would call a best seller. However, he wrote a self-help book - one he said he just wrote in a few hours and put no thought into what-so-ever. Of course THAT book, "Wish It, Want It, Do It" became a HUGE best-seller. Go figure!
I think it would be fun to read these books - what fictitious books would you like to actually read ?
