Books That Stayed With Me

Rules: in a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag ten friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them!

I was tagged by thebooker!

1) The Red Tent, by Anita Diamant

i was tagged by flourishandblotted :)

Rule 1: Post the rules.

Rule 2: Answer the questions the tagger set for you and set new ones.

Rule 3: Tag 11 people.

Rule 4: Let them know that you tagged them

Questions:


man these are good questions…

1. Who is your favourite fictional parent?

oh man this is hard, i never really think about parents with the kind of books i read :s does charlotte branwell count? cause i guess she was like a parent to everyone at the institute in TID either that or i’d have to choose someone like charlie swan from twilight (my fave character from that series really) or for some reason i always loved marigold from the illustrated mum although it’s been a while since i read it

2. What is your favourite piece of merchandise or book-related thing you own?

hmm i love my time turner that my brother bought me for my birthday one day but my favourite book related thing probably has to be my 17th century copy of Aesop’s fables that i got for my birthday last year :)

3. A series you didn’t finish?

don’t hate me okay but i haven’t finished harry potter yet (although i plan to, don’t worry)

4. A book you want to be turned into a film?

i would love the infernal devices as a film, because the costumes and things would be gorgeous, i would also love to see the robber bride my Margaret Atwood as a film )

5. If you could only keep 10 of your books, which would you keep?

ONLY TEN WHYY i would keep one of the mortal instruments, one of the infernal devices, the accidental - ali smith, looking for alaska - john green, one of the sookie stackhouse novels, complete works of shakespeare, pride and prejudice, a book of poetry (probably my oxford book of english verse or something), maybe my edgar allen poe and maybe my hp lovecraft I DON’T KNOW THIS IS HARD 

okay so new questions:

1. What is the very first book you remember buying for yourself.

2. What is your favourite quote from a book?

3. Who was the first fictional person that you gave your heart to?

4. What was the first book you read that broke your heart?

5. If you had to match a song and a book together what would you match and why? 

I tag these people :)

 I follow so many wonderful blogs and I really want to thank you properly in person someday! I’m sorry if I forgot anyone, but I’m planning on making a blogroll soon! Thanks again for such a wonderful bookish year! 

I know I haven’t made any follow forever since I made this blog not because I don’t want to but because I find it hard to choose which blogs to include without having to put every single blog I follow. But because it’s my blog’s second birthday and the end of the year, I think it’s time to make one.
