This is such a cool idea, Dolly! Thanks so much for inviting me to participate ;o) I adore your blog. Always have!
So, we're going to sneak into my Bookshelf... It's non-existant since I have most books on my kindle now. I know. I know. I'm a traitor. LOL. But, I LOVE my kindle!! Here's a pic of [cue disjointed voice of Gollum from LOTR] "my precious." and my kitty Zeus ;o)
1. Your childhood favourite
I loved the Babysitter's Club books (am I dating myself?) I mean, uh... Harry Potter. Yeah. No, really. It's To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
2. Your current favourite
Gah. It's a tie. Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare and Divergent by Veronica Roth.
3. Your top five authors
Cassandra Clare, Stephanie Perkins, Veronica Roth, Lauren Oliver, Gayle Forman
4. Book(s) you’re reading now
Just finished Clockwork Prince. AMAZING.
5. Book(s) you’ve pretended to read
Ha! I don't pretend. I either read it or don't. No faking it for me!
6. Book(s) you’ve bought for the cover
Divergent (so glad I did), Legend by Marie Lu, (ALSO a great decision, so great!)
7. Book you’re a champion for
To Kill a Mockingbird, I can't believe this is on the banned books list. My favorite book.
8. Book that changed your life
Again, To Kill a Mockingbird. It taught me a lot. But, I'll say Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series got me to write my first book ;o)
9. Book you most want to read again for the first time
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. (swoon) does it get cuter than that book? I don't think so.
10. Book you turn to for comfort
Any YA contemporary romance. I LOVE Jennifer Echols. I had to read one of hers after Clockwork Prince. I was ready for some happy ;o)
11. Favourite line from a book
Oh, this is hard... Ooo! I will consult Goodreads quotes for this. It's a bit longer than a line, but it's so beautiful. It's from Jandy Nelson's The Sky is Everywhere. “Grief is forever. It doesn't go away; it becomes part of you, step for step, breath for breath. I will never stop grieving Bailey because I will never stop loving her. That's just how it is. Grief and love are conjoined, you don't get one without the other. All I can do is love her, and love the world, emulate her by living with daring and spirit and joy.”
That was fun!! I can't wait to see what everyone else's are!! SO cool!! Thanks again, Dolly!!
Have a great week, everyone!
