The wonderful Loretta @ Laughing Listener recently tagged me to do the Book Blogger Confession Tag, and I could NOT resist an opportunity to rant and rave about one of my favorite topics: books! Be sure to stop by Loretta’s blog and say hello, she’s lovely. 💖
- Answer these questions truthfully.
- Once you’re done, tag 5 other book bloggers to answer these questions next.
Which book, most recently, did you not finish?
Beneath the Same Heaven by Anne Marie Ruff.
Which book is your guilty pleasure?
I couldn’t find a single book on my shelves or my Goodreads read that I would consider a guilty pleasure. I suppose if I ever get around to reading the Pretty Little Liars books those will be my guilty pleasure, because that damn show was one for me.
Which book do you love to hate?
I cannot think of an answer for this besides Twilight, but that is hardly an original answer.
Which book would you throw into the sea?
Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll. It’s funny, looking at my review of this book from last year I was pretty middle-of-the-road about it… but in my memory I hated the book so much. Pretty sure if I were to read it now I would have been a lot more critical but HELL NO. And you shouldn’t read it either. SAVE YOURSELF!
Which book have you read the most?
I think it has to be Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut; I am even re-reading it right now in preparation for a new blog feature (stay tuned for the announcement early in August!). It’s no secret that I love Vonnegut’s work, but this particular one I tend to gravitate to more frequently than my other faves of his (Slaughterhouse-Five and Sirens of Titan).
Which book would you hate to receive as a present?
I don’t know that I would necessarily hate being given a book as a gift; however, I suppose I would be annoyed if it were non-fiction that I wasn’t interested in or a genre I don’t enjoy reading.
Which book could you not live without?
Ignorance by Milan Kundera is probably one of the most important books in my collection and it holds a very special place in my heart.
Which book made you the angriest?
It may have been like 15 years ago, but I still remember the rage I felt when reading Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck. Why is a book that starts with literally PAGES describing DUST considered a classic?! (don’t answer that I am well aware of the literary merits of this horrible book.) Every page was like torture to me and I made it as far as the turtle chapter before I had my first and only high school DNF.
Which book made you cry the most?
There are two books that have made me cry: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green and Anger is a Gift by Mark Oshiro. Both I managed to read in public and had to ugly sob in front of people. Not my finest moments.
Which book cover do you hate the most?
This is such an odd question??? I don’t know nothing comes to mind and I can’t be arsed to scroll through to find terrible book covers LOL
