Yay! I’m this month’s co-host for the Liteary Junkes Linkup. While you can linkup at the bottom of this post don’t forget to head over to Taylor and Lesley‘s blogs. Lets jump straight into the questions, shall we?
What are you currently reading? Tell Us About It
I’m currently reading Rome for Beginners, I’ll give you the Amazon book description but check back on Saturday for an in-depth review of the book.
“The story follows these three unlikely friends in different stages of life over the course of a year: broken bones, dates in the Catacombs, multiple boyfriends named Massimo, spelunking into cavernous Roman ruins, killing one’s own turkey in a country that doesn’t celebrate Thanksgiving, explaining to a nun how adorable one’s one child is after he is expelled, learning how to get some sleep when you’ve rented a room in a church directly under the church bells. As things get even more messy these women will discover if they can get it all sorted, with or without all the “ciao bellas”.”
What is one book you think every person should read at least once in their life? Why?
Off the top of my head I’m going to say Jane Eyre. I say this because Jane Eyre is a story that goes from a girl being orphaned into an unloving family, then being abandoned into an abusive school, before becoming a governess for a little girl that is the ward of a distant man. The trials and tribulations that are Jane’s life that she must overcome before getting the family she deserves is a true testament to “If you keep working hard God will eventually bless your life.”
Do you think you could ever write a book? If so what genre would it be?
I would love to write a book and it would totally be a romance. I’m just so unsure about my writing!
Do you listen to audiobooks? Do you look for the same things in an audiobook that you do in what you read?
I occasionally listen to audiobooks, however, usually when I’m looking for an audiobook my only qualification is that it isn’t boring or the acting is way over the top. Of Mice and Men narrated by Gary Sinise is an awesome freakin audiobook!
Can you suggest a book of each genre for others to try?
Fantasy – The Harry Potter Series
Nonfiction – Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual (Hey I’m a beauty blogger!)
Fiction- Of Mice and Men
Romance – Jane Eyre
Classic – The Crucible
Young Adult – The Hunger Games
