Where my nerds at? Oh, probably judging me for the atrocious grammar of that sentence! Anyway, it's Literary Junkies time yet again. Here are the questions and my answers for November:
What are you currently reading? Tell us about it!
I'm almost finished with Mr. Penumbra's 24-hour Bookstore. It's a difficult book to describe, but so far, I love it. It's just bizarre and fun and it glows in the dark - which really confused me the first night that it was on my bedside table.
How many books have you read this year? Do you set reading goals for yourself?
I've read 43 books this year. I try to read 50 each year, so I'm right on track. I love to read, but I tend to forget if I don't make it a priority. I found that setting a goal helps me make time for reading.
What do you think are the best and worst book-to-movie/TV show adaptations?
Hmm, there are so many bad ones! I'd have to say Silver Linings Playbook was the worst. They just changed so many of the critical elements of the book. I don't know what the best is, but I thought the Harry Potter movies were a pretty good adaptation of the books. There were some things that I would have done differently, but I felt the movies stayed true to the intention of the books.
What is the first line of your favorite book?
I have no idea. First, I would have to pick a favorite book, and that's pretty tricky. I have 29 books on my "favorites" shelf on Goodreads, so I couldn't narrow it down to one favorite.
What's your favorite quote from a book?
Again, I don't know. So many books. So many great quotes. It's impossible to choose!
The Literary Junkies are chatting tonight about The Storyteller. Next month, we are reading Safe Haven. I have it checked out from the library, but haven't picked it up to read yet. This will be my first Nicholas Sparks and I'm just not sure about it. Romance is weird! Give me books that glow in the dark instead!
I'm still passing things along. Today it's my grandpa cardigan.
AND finally, since I don't have much flexibility to join in on Thursday, I'll be linking this navy leopard print dress up for Third Thursday Threads!
