Day 08 - Most overrated book
So which of my followers lives in city where...
And would like a roommate starting sometime this summer?
Day 07 - Most underrated book
Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore. Completely blasphemous, completely amazing. I don’t hear enough raving about it and only one person I know in real life has ever read it. So yes, I think it’s underrated.
The books that the world calls immoral are books that show the world its own...– Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray (via theshadowofyoursong)
Day 06 - A book that makes you sad
The Lover’s Dictionary by David Levithan. It’s an amazing book and I love it. But why does it make me sad? See, my boyfriend had bought it for me when we went shopping. And then we laid in bed together and read a few chapters. Then on my train ride home I texted him a few entries that reminded me of him. But he’s not my boyfriend anymore and I really miss him. So this book just...
Day 05 - A book that makes you happy
Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. I laughed outloud so many times with this book. It was amazing. <3
BOOKS: Keep them. Yes, e-readers are amazing, and yes, they will probably become...– Yahoo’s “Gadgets You Should Get Rid Of (or Not)” (via antiblogger)
Dear Coke Talk: On my favorite books. →
dearcoketalk: If you mean what you say, Coke Talk should have a companion reading list. What books do you read? Tell us your favorites already! Okay. Here are some of my favorite books in no particular order: Oliver Twist, Charles Dickens The first book I ever read. Matilda, Roald Dahl The second book…
On fun sized advice.
dearcoketalk: I’m all over your sites, and love the way you write. What snarky sites do you follow? Not to sound like a snooty cunt, but I read books.
Day 04 - Favourite book of your favourite series
Either The Penultimate Peril or The End. The former has a freaking library hotel and it’s just BAM with mystery and answers and weirdness and stuff. But the latter was amazing. And I may have cried a little bit at the end.
Day 03 - Your favourite series
This one is easy: A Series of Unfortunate Events. Of course, I’m defining a series as 4 or more books (other wise it’s a trilogy) in which I consistently enjoy all the books in the series. Or I’d pick the Ender’s Game series by Orson Scott Card. (Regardless of his views on homosexuality. I’m not reading to get to know the guy, I’m reading for the story)

Date a Guy Who Reads
thecanary: TheOtherCanary speaks out: What is it with all this “date a girl who reads” nonsense? While I—as a girl who reads—approve of the sentiment, I’m not terribly interested in dating a girl. What about guys who read? Do they deserve the same devotion? Let’s give this a rewrite, shall we? Date a Guy Who Reads Date a guy who reads. You will know he is a guy who reads because you often...
chrisa511 replied to your post: Day 02 - A book that you’ve read more than 3 times You’ve read The Name of the Wind 3 times?! Good lord that’s a lot of pages, lol…I don’t have room to talk though…I’ve read The Witching Hour three times and it’s over 1,000 pages, lol Yes, I have. It’s a great book, what can I say? And I REALLY enjoyed The Witching Hour. I have more books by her somewhere...
Day 02 - A book that you’ve read more than 3 times
More than three times? Oh, darn. If it was just three times I’d have said The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. How about… Thr3e by Ted Dekker? I’ve read that one at least 5 times. And watched the (terrible) movie twice.
extrinsicallyinclined-deactivat asked: In a few months, it will be a year since I decided to follow your blog, and I just want to make it aware that it was one of the better decisions I have made. You inspire me to read more, which is a fantastic thing. I love reading, and when I get slack, you remind me that I am actually neglecting something I actually gain a lot of happiness from.
Day 01 - Best book you read last year
This is difficult. I read a lot of books last year. A lot. But I think I can answer it. The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. I got chills so many times. I got lost reading this book and stayed lost for weeks after. I think the term is “fiction lag”.
