Literary Junkies

When I saw that Lesley {By the Porchlight} was hosting a link-up party related to books I thought...clearly, I need to blog about books more.  ahem.

Here are the questions...

I'm actually not really into anything at the moment.  I just finished Wither by Lauren DeStefano yesterday and loved it a lot.  I want to read the sequel but it's not at the library, and I'm refraining from purchasing it for $10 on Kindle to save money for Christmas.  *cough*christmas present idea*cough*

I picked this book up from the library and have only read a chapter so far.
I picked it for this book challenge.  I don't really know what it's about yet.  There's a boy and his father and it revolves around a book and it's mystery author.  It's supposed to be phenomenal for bibliophiles like ourselves.  I'm hoping to get into it soon.  Today was a book hangover for me.

Three favorites of all time?!  This won't be easy...

We're all nodding in agreement, right? I don't think I need to go into detail on this one.

We all remember our first love, right?

I mean, come on.  

I can't not mention a few others like The Handmaid's Tale, The Kite Runner, Still Life with Woodpecker, The Fault in Our Stars and my most recent favorite, The Night Circus.  
This was a cruel question, Lesley. ;)

Great question.  I immediately head to the cafe.  I have to have a hot coffee in my hand as I peruse the shelves.  If I have my kids with me, I go straight for the train table in the kid's department, grabbing an armful of books along the way to look through as I sip my coffee and watch them play.  

What a great link-up!  If you like books, you should join in with this one.  Who doesn't love blogging about books??

And just a returns on the 29th!  The topic question is: What are your holiday reading plans?

I just started The Night Circus and I'm sucked in. But I have a confession, I have yet to read The Hunger Games. It's in my tbr pile but I never seem to get to it!

Lesley said...

Ok so I have to add ALL Of these books to my to read list, which as like, tripled since this link up went live! LOL

Cassie @ Southeast by Midwest said...

LOVED the Hunger Games. I know some people will get ticked with this but I found it so much more enjoyable than the Twilight Series.

Claudia at Lashes and Beard said...

Great answers! If you like books about books, you should read History of Love by Nicole Krauss. I wish I'd thought of this before I wrote my answers for the link-up... probably would've picked it as one of my 3 favorites (which, I agree, is a cruel and impossible question).

Rebekah said...

I will have to add your favorites to my "to read" list!! (minus the Hunger Games, because I already read that one, it's just amazing!!

Found you via the link up! Looking forward to next month!!

Fran said...

Coffee in hand is pretty much a must for me when perusing in a book store hehe

melissa said...

Soooooo happy you enjoyed Wither :D I still love the fact that I got to send you a personal copy of a book I enjoyed so much. Book Swap must happen soon. And I mean, I love that 3 of your all time faves are mine too. Book Thief? Unbeatable.

Oh, how I love my books! I want to play but I have too many blog posts coming up on my blog to do it there.
1. Oh boy. I am currently working through the Bible in one year, finishing up Wild by Cheryl Strayed, and in the middle of Diary of a Mad Mom to Be by Laura Wolf.
2. I believe that was supposed to be three favorites. Yikes, hard to pick! I'll do three favorite authors instead! Jodi Picoult, Stephen King, and Sara Shepard
3. I also like to have a beverage in my hands while I browse the shelves. At my current bookstore, I first head to the free books section! From there I do the new adult fiction, then young adult fiction, then memoirs and non-fiction... and occasionally children's. =]
