I found this fun tag from the fabulous ladies of Thrice Read!
Here’s the link to the original post:
Here we go!
Murder Monday: Favorite murder/crime book:
This one was really hard to pick. I love a lot of murder and crime books, but I went with my gut instinct – The Pelican Brief by John Grisham. I love the book, and the movie adaptation is so suspenseful!
Tickle Tuesday: A book that made you laugh out loud:
The Vacationers by Emma Straub. I love her writing style, and I want more! I can’t wait to pick up Modern Lovers at some point.
Weepy Wednesday: A book that made you weepy/cry:
Most of you know that I love Nicholas Sparks, but for this one, I pick John Green’s Looking for Alaska. It was the first book we needed to read for my Young Adult Literature class in the spring of 2011. It made me bawl!
Thinking Thursday: A book that made you really think/reevaluate the world/your life:
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I originally didn’t want to read it, but I’m glad I did. Most of Green’s novels have made me reconsider my perspective on life.
Fantasy Friday: Favorite fantasy book/series:
Harry Potter. This is the only fantasy book / series that I have truly stuck with and become a huge fan. I was slow to get started, but Rowling’s writing took hold and swept me up faster than a Nimbus Firebolt!
Sigh Saturday: A book you just could not get into or finish:
Breaking Dawn. I struggled through most of the Twilight series (I was basically forced to watch the first two movies), and by the time I got around to reading this one, I couldn’t stand it anymore. I bought all four books, but I ended up donating them to the local library because I didn’t want to read them ever again.
Summer Sunday: A book you love to read in the summer or makes you think of summer:
The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks. After months of waiting, I finally got a copy from the library and I read it cover to cover within a few hours while my parents drove home from a trip to Florida.
Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂
