It's another month of Literary Junkies!
Literary Junkies is the book club brainchild of the lovely Lesley and Taylor and this month's book is The Casual Vacancy.
I haven't finished it yet and I'm having a hard time doing so. It's a little confusing and when I sit it down and walk away or read something else in between...I feel a little lost. Our Twitter chat (#literaryjunkies) is next Tuesday and I hope that I have it finished by then. Or maybe someone can fill in all the blanks that I have.
On to this month's questions...
1. Which book could you read over and over? Why?
I LOVE, LOVE The Black Dagger Brotherhood Series. If I could read one book over and over again forever it would be Zsadist's story. I usually don't root for the "bad" boy but Zsadist's past is absolutely tragic and the issues and pain he holds inside shape his personality- until his Bella comes into his life. Their story makes me laugh and cry and come back for more.
2. If you could be any character from any book you've read, who would you be?
3. Do you ever put a book down because you just can't get into it? Or do you stick it out to the bitter end? Any examples?
I have to admit that I had the hardest time getting into The Hunger Games. The hardest time. There have been many that I've had a hard time getting into but THG was the most high profile of late. If I can't get into a book by the third chapter I just set it aside until I either a) have nothing else to read or b) it strikes my fancy at a later moment. It can either be weeks or months before I'll come back to it but the only book I've ever stuck out to the bitter end was Uncle Tom's Cabin when I was in high school. I love to read so reading something I don't like at the moment, not for me.
4. Show us your book shelves! Do you have one designated spot in your house for all your books? Do you scatter them around?
This is really what my bookshelf looks like. I have a drawer in my kitchen where I have a few cookbooks but I usually get my recipes online anyway and I have a few photography books on a shelf in my bedroom. That's it. Otherwise all of my books are on my Kindle. I love being able to have all of my books with me where ever I am and I love that with my Kindle I never lose what page I'm on.
