It’s looking like it will be awhile before I post any new reviews, so to past the time until I do have something to post (review, meme or otherwise) here is a survey.
1 – The best book you read last year: The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson, it was surprisingly wonderful
2 – A book you’ve read more than 3 times: There aren’t very many actually, and nothing recent. Chasing Redbird by Sharon Creech
4 – A guilty pleasure book: I consider The Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.D. Ward a guilty pleasure. They are kind of stupid character wise but I’m hooked for some reason.
5 – A book that made you laugh: Hmm oddly enough I can’t remember many right now
6 – A book that made you cry: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
7 – Most underrated book:
8 – Most overrated book: The Twilight Saga, to me the writing was horrible! I mean sure it’s great for a light and completely mindless read but when I started paying attention to the actual plot, character development, and structure I immediately hated the book. There wasn’t anything to them
9 – A book you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving: That’s quite a few but I suppose the most recent would be City of Bones by Cassandra Claire.
10 – Favorite classic book: I have a few actually. The Picture of Dorian Grey by Oscar Wilde, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, and Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
11 – A book you hated: Beloved by Toni Morrison. Makes me angry just to think about it.
12 – A book you used to love but don’t anymore: Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Caroll. Don’t get me wrong I still love the idea of Wonderland and all the thought he put into it but I hate hate hate Alice now. All she does is complain
13 – Your favorite author: J.K. Rowling is the one I’m most devoted to.
14 – Favorite male character: Dorian Grey and Severus Snape (I’d name my kids after them, and actually have full intention to name my Dorian…and at the moment I seriously want his middle to be Severus, but that’s only a thought)
15 – Favorite female character: I don’t really have one, oddly.
16 – Your biggest fictional crush: Severus Snape *sighs* I love that man, both in the books and in the movies.
17 – A good quick read: When I think of quick reads I think of YA so, City of Bones by Cassandra Claire and The Iron King by Juilia Kagawa
18 – A book that disappointed you: The Divine Comedy (Purgatory and Paradiso) and recently The Dead Girls’ Dance by Rachel Mead, I expected it to carry the good things from the first one but it didn’t, it was terribly stagnant.
19 – Favorite book-to-movie conversion: Ooo I don’t know which I like more but The Lord of the Rings Trilogy or Harry Potter. I know both of them by heart and if they are on tv I can watch and rewatch all day long.
20 – Favorite romance: Wuthering Heights
21 – Favorite book from your childhood: Besides Harry Potter, um Runaway Ralph by Beverly Cleary and Chasing Redbird by Sharon Creech
22 – A book you can’t wait for: I have a few that I really want to read but I suppose I’m most anxious to finsh off the Paolini series, so Inheritance
23 – A book you’ve been meaning to read for ages: The Return of the King
24 – A book that you wish more people would read: Sophie’s World, for the philosophy and way it makes you truly think. Dracula, because he is truly a vampire and not some watered down love hunk.
25 – Character you are most similar to: Hermione Granger is probably the closest.
26 – A book that changed your opinion about something: I wouldn’t say it changed my mind, but it’s the closest a book has ever come to that. Sophie’s World
27 – Most surprising plot twist or ending: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, I expected some of it but some of it really made me dislike certain characters and others I ended up loving.
28 – Favorite book title: I don’t think I have one
29 – A book everyone hated but you liked: The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova seems to be that way.
30 – Your favorite book OF ALL TIME: The Picture of Dorian Grey
