1. Which book could you read over and over? Why?
I actually don't reread books. I always figure why reread something when I could be consuming something brand new to me where I don't already know the ending. Once, I reread what I thought was my all-time favourite book, White Oleander by Janet Fitch, and didn't enjoy it the second time around! The second round totally ruined the book for me! Ever since then, I haven't even attempted to reread anything.
I might reread The Birth House by Ami McKay since it's been so long... but I'm scared I'll hate it during my second go!
2. If you could be any character from any book you've read, who would you be?
Tough question, Taylor! The characters I am drawn to are the ones I can relate to... like Bridget Jones. I, by no means, want to be Bridget Jones but empathize with her character.
Maybe I'll say that I'd like to be Hermione Granger with her pretty curly hair and her super magic powers! haha. I think having such pretty, curly hair is a magical power in its own, though.
3. Do you ever put a book down because you just can't get into it? Or do you stick it out to the bitter end? Any examples?
I have no qualms about putting a book down and never returning to it if I'm not enjoying it! Maybe I can be tough on authors but if you're boring the snot out of me, you don't get a second chance. Sorry!
I put these two books down without thinking twice. I was about 100 pages away from finishing the first installment of the Game of Thrones series and just couldn't do it anymore. I didn't care. I'd already seen the show and enjoyed that way better. And I'm so disappointed in JK Rowling. I was bored stiff with the Casual Vacancy!
4. Show us your book shelves! Do you have one designated spot in your house for all your books? Do you scatter them around?
I've got books scattered around a bit - some on my mantel, some old textbooks in the spare room. This is my dominant bookshelf, though. I'd like to have small stacks of books displayed throughout the house on shelves and end tables... however, that would require me buying shelves and end tables. For now it's just this big jumbled mess.
That's it for me! Now run along, everyone, and link up!
