WHICH BOOK, MOST RECENTLY, DID YOU NOT FINISH?
Mariah Mundi #1: the Midas Box by G.P Taylor
I tried, I really did. But, man this book was boring! I honestly had a hard time remembering the character’s names, the plot was all over the place, so I ended up shelving it to try again at a later time. Maybe. It’s too bad: I love the cover!
WHICH BOOK IS YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE?
The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. I’ll be the first to say that the writing isn’t on par with, say, Patrick Rothfuss, and the “maybe it’s incest, but I can’t help it” thing is pretty disturbing if you think about it. I love these books, though! I think the big draw for me is the Shadowhunter world. It’s pretty stinking cool.
WHICH BOOK DO YOU LOVE TO HATE?
Um…probably the Twilight series. I found out, after reading the trilogy, that it’s actually four books long and I skipped an entire book without even realizing it. Obviously, that means the books weren’t for me. I think it was the third book I missed, but it might have been the second. I still haven’t felt the urge to remedy that.
WHICH BOOK WOULD YOU THROW INTO THE SEA?
The Night Strangers by Chris Bohjalian. This was the worst book I’ve read in a very long time. I tried to find something positive about it…nothing. Trust me: skip this one.
WHICH BOOK HAVE YOU READ THE MOST?
The Dragonlance Chronicles by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman. I pretty much have the entire trilogy memorized. I reread them at least twice a year. They’re phenomenal!
WHICH BOOK WOULD YOU HATE TO RECEIVE AS A PRESENT?
Um, I don’t think I’d hate to receive any book as a gift, because it means the giver knows me well enough to know how much I love to read. I reserve the right to not read any book I’m given, though. I don’t read romance novels, so that would be a pretty useless gift.
WHICH BOOK COULD YOU NOT LIVE WITHOUT?
I’d be pretty bummed if I lost my copy of A Diversity of Dragons by Anne McCaffrey, Richard Woods, and John Howe. I’ve had it forever, and it’s a hard one to find.
WHICH BOOK MADE YOU THE ANGRIEST?
The book that made me the angriest recently is Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare. I hated it so much that it ruined my enjoyment of the previous two books. I’m pretty sure my opinion isn’t shared by too many people, though, so don’t avoid it based on what I thought of it.
WHICH BOOK MADE YOU CRY THE MOST?
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chobsky. This is another book I’ve read multiple times and I cry every single time. It’s heart wrenching and beautiful in its honesty. I love it so much. My favorite literary quote comes from that book:
“So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I’m still trying to figure out how that could be.”
WHICH BOOK COVER DO YOU HATE THE MOST?
I loathe any cover that’s a movie poster. If the book came first, I want a book cover!
Okie dokie! I’m tagging
