Booky, book, me: Book Meme

Well, Laura over at Texas in Africa has tagged me for a meme that has to do, suprisingly, with books. :)

So here goes:

1. One book that changed your life: well, there are so many. This time I'm going to say English as a Second Language by Megan Crane because it was the first book in the chick lit genre I ever read and it's now one of my favorite genres.

2. One book that you’ve read more than once: The Inner Voice of Love by Henri Nouwen

3. One book you’d want on a desert island: the Bible, I reckon.

4. Two books that made you laugh: Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella (because you know, I am one, and all of her books written as Sophie Kinsella are delightfully funny)

All of the Harry Potter books. Sorry it's sort of cheating, but I can't remember one that made me laugh more than another.

5. One book that made you cry: I cry during a lot of books, so I had a look on my shelfari page to see what I could remember making me cry. I choose Tiger Lillie by Lisa Samson. There was a small part of that book that hit me as being so real that it made me cry a little. :)

6. One book that you wish had been written: The Autobiography of Nancy Tyler.

7. One book that you wish had never been written: I honestly have never given this much thought. I'm sure there's something that bugs me out there, but I can't think of anything at the moment.

8. Two books you’re currently reading: The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory (consequently, it has inspired a current obsession with the strangness of the court of England which previously had been about as interesting as watching paint dry to me)

Static by Ray Martoia (because I wanted to read it along with Shaun Groves and he abandoned the whole idea back in July or something and I haven't picked it up since)

9. One book you’ve been meaning to read: Too Small to Ignore by Wess Stafford and Dean Merrill

10. Now tag five or so people: Uh, if read you this, you're tagged!

Fun! I'll have to look into some of these, especially The Other Boelyn. My old roommate and I had a plan to write a dating advice book based on mistakes made by Henry VIII's wives...

Hey, thanks for the comment on my blog - I'm glad you're enjoying the book! Just out of curiosity, how did you find me? I'll be checking back to see if there are other books you would recommend for a good read!
