I’ve been tagged! For the first time!! I was tagged by Leigh.
Here it is!
If you could rewrite the ending to any book, what would it be?
I don’t know. I cannot think of any book at this moment.
What fictional character are you most like?
Oohh! I’m like Jo March from Little Women with a little of Meg and Amy mixed in. I love surprises and surprising people. I get into moods like Jo–I guess our personalities are similar. We both care for our sisters. We both have a craft we are trying to mold and shape and master.
Do you have any signed books?
I have only one to my knowledge. If You Give a Mouse a Cookie signed by Laura Numeroff. I know, I know–it’s a picture book. Other than that… none ;-(
What’s the best book you’ve read this year?
So hard!! I read To Kill A Mockingbird twice this year and it was very insightful and made me ponder on some deep questions. I also read The Help by K. Stockett, 1776 and John Adams by David McCullough. The Help was very funny and makes you think on racism and feminism. 1776 and John Adams were some of the best historical books I’ve read. McCullough is a great writer.
Do you have any bookish pet peeves?
I hate it when…
- people write or doodle in ballpoint pen in the margins (come on, why pen??)
- fold pages
- tear pages out
- fold the covers (those poor covers!)
Out of the books you’ve read this year, what has had your favorite cover?
This is hard! I own a complete Jane Austen hardcover collection which are very pretty. Here’s a picture. Aren’t they gorgeous? I (think) finished reading all of her books in 2017 so I can’t wait to re-read now!
Is there a book that releases this year that you cannot wait to read?
I can’t wait for Dragonwatch (the sequel series to Fablehaven) book 2 from Brandon Mull. I recently re-read all 5 books in the Fablehaven series and book 1 of Dragonwatch (released in 2017). I’m not sure when it will be released this year…
What is your favorite non-fiction book?
Simply put: Besides the Bible, I have no idea.
Do you have a favorite location and/or time period to have a book set in?
I simply adore the American Revolution (especially Abigail Adams) and the clothing, the culture, the circumstances. There’s also the modern era. I enjoy reading about adventures happening in this world now (or near now). Makes me think of adventures I would love to have in my own life.
Is there a book that reminds you of something else?
No answer here.
Now I tag someone else and they must answer the same questions!
P.S. I’ll end by tagging Hope.
