One of my Facebook friends posted the following mini-survey as their status. I stole it and made it today’s blog post.
Feel free to steal it from me and/or share your answers to any of these questions as comments.
-One book that changed your life?
“Ready Player One” – Ernest Cline
I can’t even go into it all. I just finished the book and felt changed, somehow. Read it. It comes highly recommended from me.
-One book that you’ve read more than once
“Darkfever” – Karen Marie Moning
Powerful yet fun.
-One book you would want on a desert island?
“The Hunger Games” – Suzanne Collins
It might give me some tips for survival (“kill anyone you come across” not included).
-One book that made you laugh?
“The Lightning Thief” – Rick Riordan
Percy Jackson reminds me so much of a younger version of one of my closest friends. Said friend is hilarious.
-One book that made you cry?
Actually, “Breaking Dawn” – Stephenie Meyer—not for the reason you’re thinking.
I cried because I was going through a tough time, and Bella’s behavior toward Jacob—essentially tossing him aside as if he’d never meant anything to her when all he ever did was be there when she needed him the most—made me so mad that I actually drudged up tears.
-One book you wish had been written?
As a writer, this one is tough because I could, theoretically, write the book in my answer. That said, I always wondered what happened to Ariel’s sisters in Disney’s “The Little Mermaid.”
-One book you wish had never been written?
I can’t say that I wish any books had never been written. Even books that I have no love for have influenced society somehow.
-One book you are currently reading?
“Fated” - Alyson Noel
It’s the common reading for my Jan residency at Seton Hill. Just started it. Not sure how this is going to go. Keeping my fingers crossed.
What book have you been meaning to read?
“Cold Days” - Jim Butcher
It just came out. Need to get on that.
