The One With The Books

So I found a link on Twitter to the blog of Hana. She had posted this survey today so I decided to join in. (Add you link to the board here)

1.  My favorite book growing up was:

I loved Enid Blyton books – I didn’t have a specific one that was my favourite but I read loads when I was young. My Dad would encourage me and my brother by taking us to the library every (or nearly every) Saturday morning, by the time I was in Year 4 I was trying to read Shakespeare (half of the time I didn’t get it but it was worth the attempt, right?).

2.  The funniest book I’ve ever read was:

I’ve read so many books I can’t remember the funniest but the one I’m reading at the moment had me laughing (Chocolate Wishes by Trisha Ashley) yesterday – which wasn’t good because then I collapsed in a fit of coughs lol.

3.  The one book that has truly changed my life is:

Well excluding the bible which is like the major influence on my life lol. I wouldn’t say I’ve read any life changing on it’s own but I read “For Such a Time as This by Lisa Ryan. It’s about being modern day Esthers and being set apart.

For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?”

Esther 14:4

4.  If you’re looking for a real “tear jerker” you should probably read:

The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks – if it’s half as sad as the film then I will need the tissues. I watched The Notebook once and I’ve never watched it since because I know that it’ll make me cry.

5.  If I could meet any author living or dead I would want to meet:

Agatha Christie or Kathy Reichs I don’t keep up with authors. I have a running book list of what I want to read and those titles come from blogs or websites that happen to mention they’re good. I’m more intrigued by what genre they are rather than who is the author.

6.  The next book on my “to read” list is:

Well I’m in the process of reading Chocolate Wishes by Trisha Ashley. Following that there is the other book that That Boy bought me for my birthday, I think I then have some Kathy Reichs books to work my way through.

7.  If I was snowed into  remote cabin in the woods and could only choose three books to bring with me I’d bring:

The Bible should keep me occupied for a little while (According to Wikipedia there is 31102 verses in the King James Version).
After that I guess I’d pick the first three on my to be read and work on those lol.

      hehe oh dear!

      I will be sure to adapt the name thing lol. I’m Hannah, at one point Hana was my nickname that I went by hehe.

  2. Marianne says:

    They did a fantastic job sticking close to the book when they made “The Notebook” into a movie and I was really glad for it because that book was one of my favourites even if it was sooo sad! All of his books are like that – I swear I have not read one book of his without needing tissues!!

    I’m so glad to meet you 🙂 I wish I lived 60 miles north of London! You lucky girl! I love London with all my heart 🙂

      Hey Marianne 😀

      Thanks for dropping by to comment. I’ve not seen Dear John yet – me and my friend JD keep saying that we are going to go eventually lol.

      I have a few friends who live in London – the main ones are Misae and Brains (well thats her nickname lol.) Have you visited Camden? There’s a coffee shop right next to the locks so if you time it right you can watch the boats going up and down the river – it’s kinda geeky but cool at the same time – near there, there is a really cool courtyard of sorts and there is second hand book shop – my friend had to drag me away before I spent all my money lol. (if you want to risk and need a map let me know)

    I got saved in November 2009 😀 I think I had just some question and revelation was a good start 😀

    • Hannie says:

      Hello Larissa!

      Yeah I guess if it answers your question then thats the place to start lol. Though if someone was interested I think I might send them somewhere a little less heavy to start with lol.
