Ten on Tuesday (5)

Visit Chelsea’s for more Ten on Tuesday-ers (link on the right)!

1. Favorite book(s) when you were a child and why?
Hank the Cowdog or anything anywhere related to Whinnie the Pooh
2. First “grown-up” book you remember reading (i.e. written for adolescents or with adult themes, such as The Outsiders or Catcher in the Rye).
We read The Outsiders in 7th grade, so it must have been that one. Although I think I read Where the Red Fern Grows in 5th grade. Oh, The Giver was in 6th grade. That book is awesome

3. Favorite movie that came from a book (even if you didn’t read the book and just love the movie).
The Time Traveler’s Wife. Good movie and GOOD book.

4. Movie that you loved so much that you WISHED there was a book out so that you could find out more about the movie.
Oh man.. I really can’t think of one right now. Every movie I think of did come from a book.
5. Worst book you’ve ever read?
Twilight. Yeah, they’re terrible.
6. Book that everyone raves about that you either a) haven’t read and feel slightly dumb for not having read it or b) have tried to read and hated and so feel slightly dumb that everyone is getting something you don’t.
Harry Potter. We got the first 2 read to us, but I haven’t read any on my own. I refuse to. I really don’t feel dumb.
7. If you were forced to choose only 3 books that you could read for the rest of your life, which ones would they be? (Or if you were stranded on a desert island, which 3 books would you want there with you?).
The Time Traveler’s Wife, Pride and Prejudice,  and How to Get Off This Island.
8. Name one book that if you could recommend that everyone you know read, what is it?
The Bible!
9. What is your “guilty pleasure” reading?
The Twilight series. I’ve read them all 3 times.
10. What book (excepting the Bible or other major document of your religion/faith) has changed your outlook on life the most?
Biochemisty 4th Edition

  1. I am glad to know that “The Time Traveler’s Wife” was good. I keep hesitating on buying it. I still haven’t seen the movie.
