I was tagged in this book challenge by the 100% delightful Karyne Norton at Because of Books! Thanks, Karyne! 🙂
1. Which book, most recently, did you not finish?
I generally finish books, so the most recent I can think of was quite a while ago: BRIGHT LIGHTS, BIG ASS by Jen Lancaster. I’d picked it up at a used book sale because she gets such good ratings, but her humor was too mean-spirited for me. I couldn’t relate to her.
2. Which book is your guilty pleasure?
All of YA used to be my guilty pleasure, but I no longer feel guilty about it. Problem = solved!
3. Which book do you love to hate?
THE SOUND AND THE FURY. Because so many literati types love it and I just can’t stand it. It’s like the reading equivalent of chewing tree bark.
4. Which book would you throw into the sea?
Maybe everything Ann Coulter has ever written? I haven’t read it, but I don’t feel anyone ever should.
5. Which book have you read the most?
PRIDE AND PREJUDICE. Because swoon!
6. Which book would you
hate love to receive as a present?
I feel like this list is skewing very negative, so I changed it. I would LOVE to receive the new Princess Bride behind-the-scenes book by Cary Elwes! Want. Want. Want. It was on my Christmas list, but, you know, I had a lot of books on there and we had a budget to stick to.
7. Which book could you not live without?
All my Jane Austen (minus Northanger Abbey which I could totally live without). Well, I could live, but the world would be gloomier.
8. Which book made you the angriest?
ANIMAL FARM by George Orwell. Napoleon. I wanted to shove a rusty spike up his snout.
9. Which book made you cry the most?
The most is hard to say, because I am a massive crybaby. A few of my favorite tearjerkers, in no particular order: Love is a Mix Tape by Rob Sheffield, A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness, and The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.
10. Which book cover do you hate the most?
I don’t hate things nearly as much as this questionnaire would like. I can’t think of any covers that I hated.
I’m tagging anyone who read this and wants to join in! I’d love to read other bloggers’ answers! 🙂
