Hello Everyone! Welcome to Friday on the Blogosphere where many choose to answer the questions posed by Parajunkee, Melissa @ i swim for oceans, Jennifer @ Crazy-for-Books, and Ginger @ GReads. Feel free to click the links below and join in on the fun for yourself!
Worst cover? What is the worst cover of a book that you've read and loved?
This one is really difficult to answer because part of how I choose the books I read is the cover. But there is one particular book that I didn't exactly choose to read of my own accord where I thought that the cover was atrocious:
I mean, come on. The 'A' in 'The Scarlet Letter' is very important, but that's not all that there is to this book. There are about a million covers for 'The Scarlet Letter' and this is among the worst. It's just so boring...
What are your top three favorite series of all time and why?
1. The Harry Potter Series-- I grew up with Harry Potter and yet, they've proven to be timeless. The books are filled with characters that people want to strive to live as. I don't mean walking around like a witch or a wizard necessarily, but just the way they are as a person.
2. A Series of Unfortunate Events-- Even though they are, at times, frustrating because of the way the adults act, the writing is just so clever and the stories are complete with a mystery that keeps you wondering until the very end.
3. The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants-- I think this one is the most relate-able of the series. The things these girls go through are (mostly) true to life which allows you to really care for the characters. It's beautiful!
What is your favorite thing about blogging?
I like having an outlet to tell people what I think. I'm not exactly the most eloquent speaker on the face of the earth. When someone asks me in person what they should read next, I can shoot titles at them rapid fire, but when it comes to telling that person what they're actually about and what I thought was awesome, it feels like I need to tell them everything and at the same time that I can't. Essentially, it all comes out in a garbled mess. So writing down my thoughts about books makes me appear more well-spoken than I am in real life. That's one of my most favorite things about blogging, among a bazillion other things.
Back To School Reading: Which books would you like to see in today's high school literature classrooms?
I'm happy to say that I will eventually have some kind of control over what will be read in today's high school literature classrooms, if all goes well. :)
