Favorite Book Cover:
Just one? Cause, I love Joshilyn's covers. Her new one is especially fun, and I adored the cover for A Grown Up Kind of Pretty. I just finished The Pentrals, and I chose to read it based almost entirely on the gorgeous cover. Ok, just one... Lolita. I have an obsession with Lolita covers. I could wallpaper a room in them. Here are a few of my favorites: Reclining with book, Lips, Lo Lee Ta
What are you reading right now?
Bitter like Orange Peel by Jessica Bell. I downloaded it for review from Net Galley.
Do you have any idea what you'll read when you're done with that?
I have a Tana French book on hold at the library. If it isn't in yet, I'm not sure. I read by mood, so there's no telling what I will decide on.
What 5 books have you always wanted to read but never gotten around to?
Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood. Dana says I will love it, and she is usually right about these things.
Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein. My dad's a big fan, and it's pretty classic.
The Catcher in the Rye by J D Salinger. I mean, I should have read this by now, right?
Interior Castle by Teresa of Avila. She fascinates me.
The Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster. I loved his book on prayer.
What magazines do you have right now?
I don't really do magazines. There are some National Geographic Kids magazines scattered here and there.
What's the worst book you've read?
That's a hard one. I mean, just because I don't love a book doesn't make it bad. Someone else may enjoy it.
What book seemed really popular but you didn't like it?
Wicked. I didn't hate it, but the munchkin porn was a bit much for my taste. Also, I adore Oz and I didn't like how he took so much of the innocent magic away. On the other hand, the musical is amazing. I could watch it everyday and never get tired of it.
What's the one book you always recommend to just about anyone?
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
What are your 3 favorite poems?
Just 3? Seriously? I will go with "Cotton Candy on a Rainy Day" by Nikki Giovanni, "Parting" by Emily Dickinson and "Goblin Market" by Christina Rossetti.
Where do you usually get your books?
A little bit of everywhere. I visit the library weekly and I frequent the Goodwill bookstore. I browse B&N sometimes and use Bookmooch and Amazon. I just started using Net Galley as well. I adore Square Books in Oxford.
