Bookish Questions - Part I

Stealing this from my friend, Gina.

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.
