This book (like the movie) started it all
Favorite Debut Book From an Author
I adore Jane Austen. Though my favorite of her novels will always be Pride and prejudice, I also hold a special place in my heart for Sense and Sensibility.
A diamond in the rough
Just Like Cinderella, You Either Didn’t Expect Much Out of This Character in the Beginning But Turned Out to Be a Total Jem
Snape is a character that I have always had mixed feelings about. I think it’s not unfair to say that he’s not a good guy. No matter what his history with Harry’s parents, the way he treats him is definitely out of line, especially considering he’s a full grown adult dealing with (at the very beginning) an 11 year old child. However, as the series goes along, his motives are more clear, and I grew to at least feel sympathy for him. I don’t know that I’d say I love him, but I understand him and think he was, in the end, a good man.
A Book That Makes You Sleepy or Just Could Not Hold Your Attention
I know this is a beloved book, but it just bored me to tears. I finished it, but it was not one I enjoyed.
Under the sea
A Book With a Water/Ocean Setting
Water water everywhere, and big old sharks, too. This is a fun, totally over the top and unrealistic gem of a book.
Beauty and the Beast
Name a Book With the Best Bookworm/Book Lover
Ok, this one may be a bit of a cheat. But it’s the first book I thought of. And it’s a good one.
The Thief and the Princess
Name Book with an Unlikely Love Story (Either in Terms of Romance or a Book You Didn’t Expect to Love So Much)
This was one I passed over time and again because it did not look like something I’d enjoy. But then I saw a few episodes of The Expanse, the Syfy show based on the series and decided to give the books a shot. It has become one of my favorite series. The show was recently dropped by Syfy, but Amazon picked it up so 🤞 it’ll be around a while.
The real life Princess
Name a Book that is Based on a Real Life Person You Want to Read/Have Read
Wild is Cheryl Strayed’s memoir about her journey along the Pacific Crest Trail. It explores grief, resiliency, and solitude. It’s at times an uncomfortable story, but it’s one I’m glad to have read.
The Princess that saved her country
Name the Fiercest Heroine You Know
Jane McKeene is a fantastic heroine. She is smart, fierce, and loyal, and she totally kicks zombie tail. I loved this book, and I’m hoping for a sequel.
The Princess with the coolest and most diverse crew
Name a diverse book whether it is a diverse set of characters (like Tiana’s group of Naveen, Louis, Ray, and more) or just diverse in general
This one was more difficult for me to decide on. I feel like this was a pretty diverse, if not fabulous, book. The concept behind it, Anastasia in space, was a great idea, but the execution was lacking. There were pacing problems within the story, and I wanted more backstory and less love story. It was ok. Just not what I was hoping for.
Let your longggg hair down
Name the Longest Book You’ve Ever Read
I read a lot of long books. I don’t have an easy way to verify this, but I think this is my longest read (at around 1,300 pages) It’s also one of my very favorites, and I have read it multiple times. It’s fantastic. If you’ve not read it, I highly recommend it. Read it, and then come talk to me about it. There’s also a mini-series from the 90’s which is wonderfully cheesy but definitely worth watching.
I determine my own fate
A Book Where There is No Love Story/Interest or Isn’t Needed
I think I can safely say there was no love story in this one. I mean I am sure Jack and Wendy had a love story at one point, but this book wasn’t it.
A Book in a Winter/Cold Setting
I got this one recently from Net Galley (my full review is coming soon – the book comes out next month). It’s like warm chocolate chip cookies by a fireplace on a cold stormy night. It is everything cozy and sweet. And it takes place, surprise surprise, during winter.
How far I’ll go
A Character That Goes on a Journey
I listened to this one on audio a few years ago. It was my first Bill Bryson, and it was hilarious. It made me want to hike the Appalachian Trail. Then I remembered that I like looking at nature through a window in an air conditioned room. But it was still a fabulous book. Seriously, if you haven’t read it, you should. There’s also a film with Robert Redford and Nick Nolte which is cute but not nearly as good (or informative – funny as the book was, I actually learned a ton).
