I am joining A Lovely Bookshelf on the Wall’s Bookish Thanks photo challenge. I haven’t been able to post a picture everyday and with NaBloPoMo this month, I decided to do a weekly recap on Saturdays. So here’s #9-15.
9. Would Read Over & Over
To Kill a Mockingbird – I listened to the audiobook narrated by Sissy Spacek and was mesmerized by this book. She was a perfect narrator and I would totaly read this book over and over again.
10. Boosted My Vocabulary
Tough one, vocabulary falls right out of my head after I learn the definition so I can’t really pick one for this.
11. Love the Voice
The Fault in Our Stars – I’m not sure whose voice I loved more, Hazel or Gus, but they were both fantastic. Witty and sarcastic and perfect for each other.
12. Favorite Reading Accessory
My Kindle, my favorite tea, and chocolate of course!
13. Must read author’s backlist
Wiley Cash and Diane Chamberlain, both NC authors. I read This Dark Road to Mercy by Wiley Cash and totally loved it so I want to read his one other book, The Land More Kind than Home as well. Diane Chamberlain has 20+ novels, The Silent Sister her most recent. I’ve been working my way through her backlist for a few years now and still have about 15 to go. I can always count on getting through one of her books in just a couple days, so I tend to read them when I have time to squeeze them in between book club and review requests.
Favorite Reading Spot
Our bed, usually in pitch black on my Kindle so I can read into the wee hours of the night and not keep Superhubby awake.
15. Sparked my Imagination
Is there another answer? Harry Potter, of course! I didn’t start reading it until this year but this one certainly got my imagination working. I’ll be reading the last book as soon as I finish my current read. We’ve been reading this series with our kids for our IRL book club and I enjoyed making puzzles for us to play once in awhile. I have plenty of ideas on how to bring the books to life in our meetings but the puzzles are the easiest to execute!
What books are you thankful for? What books would you pick for these categories? Let me know, I’d love to hear from you and as always, happy reading!
