20 Reading Questions

Gooood morning everyone on a beautiful and sunny Monday morning! Twitter was buzzing with some great blogging activity a few weeks ago and I couldn’t join back then, but following my dear MarinaSofia’s example, I thought I’d answer the 20 Reading Questions here keeping in mind the 280-character Twitter rule πŸ˜‰

  1. Women’s fiction.
  2. I am reading two at the time! Anything is Possible by Elizabeth Strout (short stories), and Tree of Sighs by Lucrecia Guerrero (Chicano Lit, because there is more to it than J.D).
  3. The Disappearing Cake. Always loved a good mystery!
  4. I would LOVE to see all of Gillian Flynn’s works adapted for the big/silver screen by Reese Witherspoon.
  5. Amy. Elliot. Dunne.
  6. Draco Malfoy. Love (literary) bad boys!
  7. I used to write stories, though of late I’ve mainly written academic papers. I’m a copyeditor too, so I do not write stories, but I help build them.
  8. Pride & Prejudice. Hated the book – sorry! – but I can tolerate some of the adaptations.
  9. The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin. It changed my life. Review to come VERY soon.
  10. Kate Morton.
  11. Fantasy.
  12. Big Little Lies or anything by Liane Moriarty. She’s a domestic noir genius!
  13. Gone Girl.
  14. The Great Gatsby. There is a flapper trapped in this Millennial body and she wants out!
  15. David Mitchell’s The Bone Clocks, though I was not crazy about it.
  16. Jane Eyre by Charlotte BrontΓ«.
  17. Postmortem by Patricia Cornwell because it made me want a PhD on forensics in literature.
  18. Gillian Flynn.
  19. Margaret Atwood. I love 99% of what she writes. And though we’ve never met, I’m glad I got to interview her!
  20. SO hard when you love crime fiction series! Probably the Temperance Brennan series by Kathy Reichs (+ Bones!) because they taught me to work harder and take pride in my work.

    1. I’m trying to put some distance between the reading and the reviewing because it was one of those books that, well, DID change my life. I hope I can convey what it meant to me with words.

  1. Have you read Sense and Sensibility? I actually prefer that book over Pride and Prejudice (although I still really enjoy Pride and Prejudice) so maybe you would find it to be a better read – although if you don’t enjoy reading Jane Austen then just ignore my comment. πŸ˜›
    And an interview with Margaret Atwood?!?! Going to read it now.

  2. That was fun to read your preferences. I don’t think I knew the extent to which you loved Gone Girl! And I am eager to read your thoughts on The Immortalists. πŸ™‚
