My Literary Loves



I was tagged by minijonb regarding books that I have read. I am a voracious reader so I hope you like my list.

1) One book that changed your life: You Were Smaller Than a Dot ~ by Glen Giffin. ~ This was my mother’s version of sex education.

2) One book that you'd read more than once: Clan of The Cave Bear by Jean M Auel ~ This was the first grown up book that I read.

3) One book you'd want on a deserted island: War & Peace by Leo Tolsty ~ I figure that if I can’t read it then I won’t ever be able to read it. Could also be decent for kindling.
If it could be a complete series than I would take the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan.

4) One book that made you laugh: Velvet Elvis by Rob Bell.

5) One book that made you cry: My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult ~ Very controversial book about genetic planning and having babies for health purposes.

6) One book you wish you'd written: Any Harry Potter book by J.K. Rowling ~ I would love to write something that instills a passion of reading in children.

7) One book you wish had never been written: The Diary of Anne Frank by Anne Frank ~ I wish that it had never happened at all.

8) One book you're currently reading: In Too Deep by Cherry Adair ~ caught me reading one of my fluff novels.

9) One book you've been meaning to read: Into The Storm by Suzanne Brockmann ~ I have had it on order from the library since the beginning of September.

I love this list! I want to try some of your books! I especially want to read the one that made you cry, and the one you have read more than once, they sound interesting. I have read The Diary of Anne Frank, but not Harry Potter I must admit. I much prefer Lord of The Rings!

Anna ~ I have read all of the Clan of the Cave Bear series. Waiting for the next one....
I love those books. Such rich descriptions.
If you like Clan of the Cave Bear try the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon.

Erica ~ Clan of the Cave Bear is a fantastic book. It is a 5 book series and is set back in prehistoric times.
My Sister's Keeper is one that took me a bit to get into as each chapter is first person from a different person's perspective. Once I got into it I couldn't decide which point of view I agreed with the most.
I would definitely recommend it.

If "In Too Deep" is about Phil Collins than I'm all of that book. I have a sneaking suspicion that it isn't unfortunately.

I had been wanting to read "My Sister's Keeper". Now I definitely will.
BTW, fluff reading is awesome :-)

Velvet said...

I must read Velvet Elvis, just cause!

Eric ~ In Too Deep is a fluffy romantic suspense novel. Doubt you would like it.

l.b. ~ It was one of the most gut wrenching book I have read in a long time. It was very well written and you could see everyone's point of view.

Velvet ~ The full title is Velvet Elvis: Repainting The Christian Faith. Just so you know.
