I’m really excited about some posts I’m writing this week. First though, I want to link up with Arman from the Big Man’s World for Spill It, Sunday… because it’s about books this week!
Oh tough question. I’m always in love with the last book I read, which was Blackberry Winter.
Eat Pray Love was amazing, and I hurried to the theater to watch the movie. By myself. But it sucked. 😦
2. Favourite genre?
Autobiographies: Waiting for Snow in Havana
Fiction: Sarah Jio
Wicked… this isn’t indicative of the books I typically enjoy.
John Steinbeck – I consider Steinbeck historical fiction. I love how he takes readers back in time and places us in the Depression Era in central California. Steinbeck was the only author I enjoyed in high school for his vivid details and honestly, he was just easier to understand than any other author we were forced to read.
3. Favourite childhood novel/teen novel?
The Babysitters’ Club, which also has this amazing movie. I think my favorite books are those with fantastic movies too.
The Ear, The Eye, & the Arm, which I actually read in college for a middle school ‘geography’ teaching class. I’ve read the book twice!
Nicholas Sparks, especially A Walk to Remember, which I read in 6 hours. His other books blend together, but I spent a lot of high school reading his books. Also, my favorite movie rendition.
4. Favourite series?
Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and it was cast so perfectly.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
5. Which book would you hope future generations will continue to consider a classic?
I agree with Arman on Harry Potter. I stopped reading about book 5, but these are the best books. Yes, there have been other series. However, this changed the world. I don’t believe another book series will get people to read, stand outside movie theaters, dress up, and develop a theme park to the extent that this series did. And it all happened in my childhood. 🙂
6. Worst novel to be written?
Arman picked my childhood favorite. I haven’t read Twilight, but I have no interest in reading them.
The selfie: No boobs and a lot of thigh. This body kills it in hiking, lifting, yoga, and running if I wanted to but I don’t.
I took this to reassure myself I’m not a cow. I saw a picture of myself and ugh, I looked fat!
I work out, eat ‘right’ although that’s up in the air according to this post, and am recovered/recovering from some major ED.
Stayed tuned for the story of this and a few other pictures this week!
