Just stumbled across this one, and I added some questions of my own.
A book that made you cry: The Notebook, by Nicolas Sparks. I read this over a lunch break. I had to stop reading after every other page because I couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t keep from crying. I was afraid people at work would think something was wrong.
A book that scared you: I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t think of a book that ever scared me. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve read quite a few horror books, but none actually scared me.
A book that made you laugh: Undead and Unwed, by MaryJanice Davidson. A 30 year-old, 6-foot, blonde vampire, with a love for shoes, who thinks blood is disgustingÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ I can definitely relate to the Betsy, except for the whole vampire thing. And this series continues to get better with each book. I love MJÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s sense of humor!
A book that disgusted you: The Grapes of Wrath, by John Steinbeck. I just remember reading the first chapter back in Jr. High. I wanted to read it because it was a classic. But the first few pages disgusted me so much I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t want to continue.
A book you loved in elementary school: The Nancy Drew series. Oh, how I wanted to be a girl detective!
A book you loved in middle school: The Girl With the Silver Eyes, by Willo Davis Roberts. How cool would it be to be able to move things with your mind?! After reading this book, I guarantee youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll try staring at something really hard to see if you can get it to move. 😉
A book you loved in high school: Pretty much anything Star Trek. But one of my favorites was Reunion, by Michael Jan Friedman and Dave Stern. I loved the vivid descriptions and the characters came alive to me. There were some pretty cool aliens as well. No, I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t date much in high school.
A book you hated in high school: Besides my textbooks, Gone With the Wind, by Margaret Mitchell. I read this one after watching the movie. And I found that I disliked the characters even more than I did while watching the movie. I really canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t stand Scarlett.
A book you loved in college: Art and Fear, by David Bayles. This was a textbook in an illustration class. My professor challenged us to not be afraid of failure. Interesting book.
A book that challenged your identity: Besides the Bible, another book that really impacted me on a personal level was When God Whispers Your Name, by Max Lucado.
A series that you love: Sooo many, but one of my favorites is the Noble Dead series, by Barb and J.C. Hendee. They donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t come fast enough for me.
Your favorite horror book: The Scent of Shadows: The First Sign of the Zodiac, by Vicki Pettersson. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d call it more urban fantasy than horror, but itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s dark enough to be in the Ã¢â‚¬Å“horrorÃ¢â‚¬Â category.
Your favorite science fiction book: Another hard decision, but one of them would be Area 51, by Robert Doherty. Action-packed and reads like youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re watching a movie. Fantastic series.
Your favorite fantasy book: The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, by C.S. Lewis. This is another one that can make me cry too.
Your favorite mystery book: And Then There Were None, by Agatha Christie. Actually, anything by Agatha Christie.
Your favorite biography: The Hiding Place, by Corrie Ten Boom. Powerful book that I read as a teen. It challenged my faith and made me wonder what IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d do if I was ever persecuted for my faith.
Your favorite “coming-of-age” book: Eragon, by Christopher Paolini. I just read it last year, and now it tops on my list of fantasy books.
Your favorite classic: The Count of Monte Cristo. Also, my favorite book of all time, as many of you know by now.
Your favorite romance book: I’m going to have to go with The Notebook, by Nicolas Sparks.
Your favorite book not on this list: To not repeat books that IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve already mentioned in other lists, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll go with The Misenchanted Sword, by Lawrence Watt-Evans. Mixing not-so-subtle humor into a wonderful fantasy world, I loved this story.
