The Rules (of the original tag):
- The book(s) you answer with must be from your bookshelf.
- Include a picture of your bookshelf, if possible, or you could include pictures of your dream shelf.
a good, long book | Inheritance by Christopher Paolini | as a rule I dislike long books, but Paolini sucks me into his fantasy worlds and I love them so, so much
favorite classic on my shelf | The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde | this play is hilarious and I had to bury my face in my pillow so my laughter wouldn’t wake up my family in the middle of the night. how could I not love it?
an underrated book | Twilight by Stephenie Meyer | obviously a ton of people love this book, but as I reread it now I wish more people talked about the Underworld overtones and the good and evil and just be more academic about it
most reread book | Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling | it’s sort of disappointing for this to still be true but I don’t think I’ve read any other book more than 24 times
how many of the books you own have you not yet read? | 22 | books don’t get to live on the shelf until I’ve read them, so I make a point of reading the books I own
a short story collection | Girls to the Rescue! by Bruce Lansky | I have four or five of these collections and they are nice little stories about how girls do awesome things that aren’t always romantically important
a nonfiction book | I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou | turns out my old AP texts can have really interesting sources and this was both beautiful and heartbreaking
Thanks, Liz, this was really fun! For my tags, I tag Grace, Shar or Shanti, and Ashana Lian. Have fun, friends!
