I’ve been a Musing Mondays slacker of late, as I just haven’t connected with a good question. But this week’s offering is a little meme-thing, and you know how I love those little buggers. So!
What was the last book you…
• borrowed from the library?
I just today grabbed The Red Tent, my book club’s next pick.
A Visit From the Goon Squad, which I found at The Bookmark, my local-ish indie bookstore.
• cried over?
The Book Thief, because I am not made of stone, people.
• disliked and couldn’t finish?
I tried listening to a free version of Emma, but the narrator took her commas and full stops way too seriously for me. Not the book’s problem, though, and I might try a different version later.
• read & loved?
Anya’s Ghost, which I did not intend to like at all!
• got for review? (or: got in the mail?)
Well, I don’t do that first part, and I like to buy my books in person… hmm… I think the last time I mail-ordered books I ended up with John Green’s first three novels, and also The Secret History
• gave to someone else?
Uh-oh. I lent a friend some books recently and I don’t remember what they were! I’m pretty sure I lent her The Sparrow and The Manual of Detection, and probably In the Woods? I should really keep better track of these things.
• stayed up too late reading?
The Hunger Games, which is just too engaging for its own good!
