Friday Facts

Books

1. I was obsessed with The Babysitters Club and Sweet Valley High


2. I've read Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. a whole bunch of times even as an adult. 

3. When I read The Prince of Tides I bawled like a baby for a long time and it took me a long time to shake the story off of me. I was so sad when it was over.

4. Wally Lamb's books are wonderful. My favorite is probably She's Come Undone.

5. I only read 50 Shades of Grey because my friend said "I HAD to read it". I was pregnant at the time and I was intrigued by how someone could be interested in that lifestyle.


6. I have only read one Harry Potter book and that was because I had to in college. Just not my thing.

7. I LOVE self-help books. I just enjoy the motivation it provides. I'm currently reading Maxed Out

8. I enjoy the classics as well. I love Pride and Prejudice, To Kill a Mockingbird, Great Expectations, Native Son....the list could go on and on.

9. I read children's books all day and the ones the kids love the most are the classics. Today I read Rumpelstiltskin and they were entranced.

10. The book I want to read next is We Are Water.

  1. I remember someone loaning me "She's Come Undone" when I was in middle school and my mom read it while I had it and took it away from me. It is one of only two books in my life that she wouldn't let me read. I had forgotten about that. I wonder what was so bad about it? Maybe I should read it now. :-)

  2. I LOVE Harry Potter! I was really against them at first because I thought it was a kids' cult, but I went and saw The Chamber of Secrets when I was studying abroad so I could say I saw a movie in England and liked it so I saw the first and then third films. I read all the books before the fourth film came out and I have been hooked ever since.

    However, I have never read 50 Shades of Gray and have no desire to.

    And Pride and Prejudice is also one of my favorites :-)
