I saw this tag over on Thrice Read’s blog and decided to give it a try.

FAVORITE BOOK OF ALL TIME?

This is a tough one. To Kill a Mockingbird was my favorite for years but I think I can give this title over to Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe.

FAVORITE BOOK FIVE YEARS AGO?

I wasn’t even in high school (secondary school for my international friends) five years ago. I was obsessed with Percy Jackson at the time but I had also read The Book Thief that year and I absolutely loved it.

There are so many to name. The Color Purple, All American Boys, and The Hate U Give have had a huge influence on me in recent years.

BOOK THAT MADE YOU UGLY CRY?

I am no stranger to tears. I cry during movies, while reading books, and even while watching TV shows. But, there are some books that make it too difficult to continue reading through the haze of tears. For me, these books were: The Color Purple, The Book Thief, and The Boy in the Black Suit.

BOOK THAT MADE YOU LAUGH?

Love and First Sight by Josh Sundquist. I love Sundquist’s writing and the humor he finds in the most precarious situations.

CHARACTER YOU’D LIKE TO BE FOR A DAY?

I think I would want to be Mindy Kaling from Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? for a day if that counts. She’s hilarious and successful.

BOOK SO GOOD YOU DREAMT ABOUT IT?

I don’t think I’ve ever dreamt about a book. I’ve probably dreamt of reading, but not a specific book.

BOOK YOU DNFD?

If I start a book and I’m not really into it, there’s a good chance I won’t finish it. The Diviners by Libba Bray was a little too creepy for me so I never finished it.

WHAT BOOK ARE YOU MOST EXCITED TO READ?

The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo is on the top of my TBR right now. I need to go out and buy a copy, the audio book will not do.

I tag all who are interested in doing this. It was a fun way to reminisce on how much reading has meant to me in the past and present.
