Friday Fun: My Book Tastes

April 9th, 2010 by Debbie's World of Books

Someone in one of my online book clubs posted this questionnaire and it sounded like fun.  If you want to participate create a post with your own questions and link it below.

List one or more books for the following categories:

1. Books you have read more than once:

2. Books you want on a deserted island (3 maximum)

3.Books that made you laugh

4. Books that made you cry

5. Books you wish you had written

  • I can’t really pick any one.  I’m in awe of anyone who has the discipline and talent to write a book

6. Books you wish had never been written

  • Hmmm…maybe Twilight by Stephanie Meyer?  I actually really enjoyed the series but it irks me now that it seems like every YA paranormal book is compared to it whether they are similar or not.

7. Books you are currently reading

  • Star Trek: The Next Generation Posessions by JM Dillard and Kathleen O’Malley (this is a re-read)
  • Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

8. Books you have been meaning to read

  • Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
  • Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
  • Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
  • Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne

9. Books that changed your life

  • Not sure

What about you?

    Great post. I think I have oh my gods in my TBR (somewhere), I may have to bump it up.

    Great post. I just posted my own. I’ve not read most of the ones you listed, but the ones’s I have read I agree. with their placement. I even get your qualification about Twilight. Borders YA area is all a bit much as a consequence of Twilight

    Hunger Games totally changed my reading life. I’m all about YA now as a result.

    I think it’s interesting that you bring up the Twilight scenario. Because I just commented at Books and Movies about how I think it’s an advantage to me that I’ve not read any of the books. I continuously see the comparisons and have to wonder how every book in the genre can possibly be a knock off. It just doesn’t seem feasible.

    Elie-it was definitely a fun book!
    Bekah-can’t wait to read your post
    Michelle-How could I forget about Hunger Games! I read Twilight before I ever heard anything about it so I think I enjoyed it more then compared to if I read it now after all the hype. I think it’s silly for people to compare it to every other YA series. Like I keep people saying which is better, Harry Potter or Twilight. They are totally different from each other.

    I love these kinds of lists, Debbie. I agreed with a few of yours, as well.
