Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 6

A book that makes you sad… The Dinner List by Rebecca Serle I just read this book last weekend. I cried most of the way through it. I don’t want to give any spoilers so let’s just say that it made me think about my own life, and how I don’t really have any really close friends that I could turn to for support if something really devastating happened… Continue reading Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 6

Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 5

A book that makes you happy… Okay, this might be my hardest one to answer. You see, I don’t really read books with the goal that they will make me “happy”. Just the act of reading makes me happy, otherwise I wouldn’t do so much of it! I guess if I had to choose one, I’d have to say: The Poetry of Robert Frost …two roads diverged in a wood, and I- I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference… Continue reading Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 5

Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 4

Favorite book in your favorite series… So, as stated my favorite series is the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. Which one is my favorite though? That’s a hard one to answer. If I had to choose, it would probably be a tie between the first book, Outlander and the eighth book, Written in My Own Heart’s Blood. Obviously I loved the first book because I went on to read the next ones. If you know the series, you know that these are not exactly light reading. I think the shortest one is something like 1200 pages…. I really liked the … Continue reading Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 4

Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 3

Your favorite series… Hands down the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon I love the historical context and all the detail. (Book 5 has a bit too much detail, as it takes 100 pages or so for one day, but really no complaints.) Yes, I watch the Starz series based on the books, and yes, I love it. The show stays very true to the books. I am anxiously awaiting the next book to come out! Continue reading Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 3

Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 2

A book that you’ve read more than 3 times… The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare Though I don’t actually tend to read books multiple times, there are a few that I could have chosen for today’s book. I could have said Dracula without a hesitation, I could have said American Gods, or Harry Potter… But this book I think, was really the first time I had read something that fell into the historical fiction category. Of course it had sparked my interest because it was about a witch, or so the title claimed. I don’t remember how … Continue reading Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 2

Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 1

Okay, so I came across this challenge on a Pinterest post. I thought it might be fun and as even if I don’t have time to do much else, I still read a lot. So let’s see if I can keep it up! Day One: Best book you read last year? (I’m going to go with this year since it’s almost over anyway) The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn I’ve read quite a lot of books this year (not as much as last year, but still a great showing) and this one still stands out to me. I … Continue reading Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 1
