I love book tags! I came across this interesting tag on Katie’s blog and can I just add that I’m loving her blog and the fact that she’s a RavenClaw!
What book is on your nightstand right now?
Peace Like a River by Leif Enger
What is the last truly great book you read?
If you could meet any author, dead or alive- who would it be? What would you ask them?
- I’d love to meet Grace Ogot! If there’s any Female Writer who was as fierce in her writing as fulfilling her aspirations, then she’s the one I’d love to have coffee with and title the talk “My Guest needs no introduction…”
I would ask her what kept her going at a time when Women were not upheld or deemed worthy of expressing themselves through literature and fiction. I’d also ask about her style inspiration!
What books might we be surprised to see on your shelves?
- Chronicles of Narnia- did I mention that I’m a fan? Everyone should read the books!
How do you organize your personal library?
- The books that impress me so much are kept in storage containers and labeled “Books for Aurora” with the hope that someone in my generation would read and enjoy them as much as I did.
What book and/or series have you always meant to read but haven’t gotten around to yet? Anything you feel embarrassed to never have read?
- The Beautiful Creatures Series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
What book did you feel like you were supposed to like but didn’t?
- Persuasion by Jane Austen
What kind of stories are you drawn to? What do you avoid?
- I love literary fiction- and for some weird reason, most people complain that the books that win major literary awards are boring, but to me they are just what I need.
- I’m not a huge Sci-Fi fan but once in a while, a title proves me wrong and I accept it.
If you could require the president to read one book what would it be?
- The Devil on the Cross by Ngugi wa Thiongo’
What do you plan to read next?
- Under the Banner of Heaven by Jon Krakauer
