Want to know more about me and what’s on my bookshelf?
Well, here you go, the “My Life in Books” Tag. Inspired by Dreamland Book Blog
1.- Find a book for each of your initials
V – Miss Violet’s Shining Day by Jane Breskin Zalben
A – All Grown Up by Jamie Attenberg
P – The Paris Wife by Paula McLain
2.- Count your age along your bookshelf: What book is it?
My Father’s Daughter by Tina Sinatra. Nice. That would be the 25th book on my shelf. Just turned 25 in February. I’m getting old.
3.- Pick a book set in your city/country
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I’m from New York. A proud New Yorker.
4.- Pick a book that represents a destination you’d love to travel to
The Jewel Box by Anna Davis. I’ve always wanted to travel to London.
5.- Pick a book that’s your favorite color
Alex and Eliza by Melissa De La Cruz. It’s a beautiful antique rose sort of color. Is that not gorgeous?
6.- Which book do you have the fondest memories of?
The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. You guys know, I love a good mystery. When I was commuting to college, a train and two subways, I would read Sherlock Holmes, and those stories always make me happy. There’s something enchanting and intriguing to me about classic mysteries.
7.- Which book did you have the most difficulty reading?
Duchess of Nothing By Heather McGowan. I read this novel years ago. I can’t say this is a bad story, by any means. The thing is, I had a difficult time connecting with the main character and the story. There was just no real plot progression. It’s more about the internal, physiological conflict of this woman who feels trapped and stuck in her romantic relationship and life.
8.- Which book in your TBR pile will give you the biggest accomplishment when you finish it?
I recently bought a collection of Hercule Poirot mysteries by Agatha Christie. It’s this massive book of 50 short stories. I’m gonna try very hard to get through the whole thing. Or at least most of them.
Do the kids still say “tag me” when they want someone to give them a tag?
