Book Fun Q&A

Time for a little fun!  A questionnaire all about books!  I stumbled upon this on Jillian's Random Ramblings blog, who stumbled upon it on Amelia's Leave Your Eyes Behind blog.  Now for the fun!

1. Book next to your bed right now:  Broad Street by Pat Conroy (read), Revenge of the Spellmans by Lisa Lutz (read), Blue Christmas by Mary Kay Andrews (finished reading last night, look for the review coming soon) & Gus the Great by Thomas W. Duncan (reading now).  I know...time to clean my nightstand off!

2. Favorite series:  Honestly I have at least 5 favorite series, so this is tough!  Umm...I'm gonna go with the Hannibal series by Thomas Harris.

3. Favorite book:  I know this question was meant to be in the plural sense, because there is no way I can only pick just one!

4. The one book you would have with you if stranded on a desert island:  Again I know this question was meant to be in the plural sense!  So, off the top of my head I have to say How I Left the Great State of Tennessee & Went On To Better Things by Joe Jackson.

5. Book/series you would take with you on a long flight:  I would take one of my TBR shelf...Hissy Fit by Mary Kay Andrews.

6. Worst book you were made to read in school:  O.k. don't shoot me, but it has to be A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.  Couldn't even finish it!

7. Book that everyone should be made to read in school:  Cold Sassy Tree by Olive Ann Burns.  The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton (I had to read it in school & it was by far my favorite of all the "made to read" books.  Not sure if it's still mandatory or not.)

8. Book that everyone should read, period:  Again this should be plural tense.  The Bearded Lady by Sharlee Dieguez, The Honkytonk Man & Children of the Dust both by Clancy Carlile, The Water is Wide by Pat  Conroy.  O.k. I'll stop there!

9. Favorite character:  Stephanie & Grandma Muzar from Evanovich's Plum series.  Izzy from Lisa Lutz Spellman series.  Eloise from Mary Kay Andrews Savannah series.

10. Best villain:  Hannibal Lecter of course!  Who else!?

11. Favorite concept book/series:  Because this is one of my most newly discovered favorites I'll say the Savannah series by Mary Kay Andrews.  The main character is a "junker" (yard sale goer, thrift store shopper, auction addict, etc.) which I love myself!  Plus the stories take place in Savannah, GA. which I love going to!

12. Favorite invented world:  Time for a crony answer!  These aren't exactly "invented" but, I love the world in Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen & the world in Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil  by John Berendt.

13. Most beautifully written book:  Again with the singular sense!?  Off the top of my head The Water is Wide by Pat Conroy.  His words create such vivid imagery!  

14. Funniest book/series:  I have two.  Again Evanovich's Plum series & Lutz's Spellman series.

What do you think?  Answer & pass this along!  Anyone who does I would love to read your answers, so be sure to let me know!
