Grumpy Cat–A book you have negative feelings about
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. I know this is popular, but I didn’t like it at all. It spent multiple pages in reflection with nothing happening at all. I couldn’t wait to be done with this book. One of only four 1 star ratings I have on Goodreads.
What if I told you– A book you spoiled for yourself
This question has an obvious answer for me. I’m Thinking of Ending Things by Iain Reid. The twist at the end of this book, I accidentally spoiled for myself reading questions and answers about this book on Goodreads. I was only half way through reading the book. It absolutely changed my reading experience.
I don’t always man–A book you don’t like, but when you’re reading it you do
Damned by Chuck Palahnick. This book I read because my husband really enjoyed it. I did not enjoy it, but while I was reading it I couldn’t put it down. Whether that was because I just wanted it to be over or because I actually cared about the story or characters I can’t recall.
90’s Spiderman–A good classic or retro book that’ll never get old
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. Funny every time.
Marching Band Memes–A book that’s very relatable
She’s Come Undone by Wally lamb is the most relatable book of my life. I typically read it every few years and find new ways that I can relate to Dolores each time.
Demotivational–A book that you’re seen almost everywhere
The first thing that came to mind was The Harry Potter Series. I like the first one. I’ve read the first four a couple of times, but I can’t get through book five.
You don’t say–A predictable book
It’s a children’s book so maybe that’s why, but I’m choosing The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo for this question. This is another of the 1 star ratings on my Goodreads. I didn’t like this book at all, but I suppose it’s predictable given that he eventually ends up back with the little girl he treated like garbage.
One does not simply–A book you binge read
On the Island by Tracey Garvis-Graves. I read this in less than a day. So so good!
Chemistry Cat–A book that taught you something new
Dumbing Us Down by John Taylor Gatto. This book taught me a lot about the public school system and cemented my plans to homeschool my child.
Pet Memes–A book that’s just really adorable
Any of the Junie B Jones books. She is such a fun and cute character.
What is the last book that you binge read?
