Book Survey

Teehee, I'm copying Wordbird's style until my creativity comes back.

1. One book that changed your life?

A Voice in the Wind - Francine Rivers. I'm not usually a Christian fiction reader, but it's set in Rome! Come on. The author's voice took my by surprise and really carried me through the hardships the protagonist had to face and really put a new perspective on things for me. It was learning without realizing it, too.

2. One book you have read more than once?

Inkheart - Cornelia Funke. It's more of a middle grade novel, but I've never grown out of it. I love being transported between worlds, and I love the characters. Note: Movie is HORRIBLE.

3. One book you would want on a desert island?
Where the Red Fern Grows - Wilson Rawls. My favorite book to this day since the first time I read it in third grade.

4. One book that made you laugh?

Evermore - Alyson Noel for the fabulous gaydar joke.

5. One book that made you cry?

Marley & Me - John Grogan. I was sick when I finished it, and that didn't help matters.

6. One book you wish had been written?
The Iron King - Julie Kagawa. Just because it would be such an awesome thing to say: "I created Ash! :D"

7. One book you wish had never been written?Animal Farm - George Orwell. Sorry, the book did not appeal to me when I read it. At all. I thought it was ridiculous. And my teacher knew it when she saw the answers to my questions. I wasn't very sympathetic. How ironic: the magic-myth-animal-loving writer hates a book about an animal dictatorship.

8. One book you are currently reading?

The Book Thief - Markus Zusak. This is a reread. :D

9. One book you have been meaning to read?
Revolution - Jennifer Donnelly.


Well, that was reminiscent and brief. (: I should probably put links to all these books but I don't know where to link them to... baaaah humbug.


  1. Ditto in regard to THE BOOK THIEF!

    I haven't read INKHEART or WHERE THE RED FERN GROWS, though I've heard wonderful things about both. Why is my TBR list so ridiculously high? I swear it's teetering about about to topple right over my head.

    It's a bummer that you didn't like ANIMAL FARM. I read it once about a year ago and had to read it again in Global Studies this year. I don't think I really grasped what it was about the first time, but my teacher brought it to life the second time around.

  2. I thought I was going to like it, but when all of the animals started going "Well, it MUST be true," no matter what they saw, I just got a bit bored with it, and finally annoyed. XD

    It won't topple. If mine won't, yours won't. ;D
