One of the great things about following all of your blogs is getting to hear your thoughts. I thought it would be fun to ask some Holiday bookish questions to get me in the spirit, and maybe you’ll give me some good ideas! I hope you join in to answer any or all – the more the merrier!
- What is the most wanted book on your wish list?
- What is your favourite book for gift-giving this year?
- What was the best and/or worst book you read this year that was recommended to you by someone else?
- What was the best and/or worst book you read this year that you discovered on your own?
- Do you enjoy reading Holiday themed books? I find it really hard to find any that appeal to me. Any suggestions?
2 thoughts on “5 Questions For the Holidays”
What a fun list of questions! Here are my responses:
1. It was either The Orphan Master’s Son or The Golden Notebook. At any rate, I got both already 😉 (Christmas treats for myself)
2. I am still looking for my son but I don’t have any this year for adults.
3. Best: Where’d You Go, Bernadette; worst: The Rules of Civility. I found this one on a Facebook thread in which a journalist was asking for recommendations. The Rules of Civility was recommended over and over again and I grabbed it out of the library immediately. Unfortunately, I just couldn’t connect with the main character.
4. Best: This is How You Lose Her, because I wasn’t intending to read it at all (I was only vaguely familiar with who Junot Diaz was) but just decided to pick it up when I saw it available on the library shelf. Worst: The Woman Upstairs. The writing was a bit overwrought for me.
5. Not generally…though I have David Sedaris’s Holidays on Ice which I plan to read soon.
Thanks for commenting Cecilia! I will now be adding two new books to my list, and avoiding two others. You’ll have to let me know how the Sedaris book is. Buying books for my kids is my favourite kind of shopping! I always want to read all of their books too!
