Stolen {Book} Meme

This meme keeps popping up in my dashboard and each time I can't help but think about which books I'd choose for each category, so I might as well steal it. You should steal it to. All the cool kids are doing it: Anna Jarzab, Courtney Summers, Mindi Scott.

 5 of My Least Favorite Books
  1. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee (I know, I know! I read it in 9th gr and should probably reread it!)
  2. Thief Eyes by Janni Lee Simner (I just couldn't get into this one.)
  3. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley (Ugh.)
  4. The Tear Collector by Patrick Jones (I tried to like it!)
  5. Never Cry Werewolf by Heather Davis (Ditto!)
 5 of My Favorite Book-to-Film Adaptations
  1. Pride and Prejudice (Both! I love Colin Firth and Keira Knightly, so I can't choose!)
  2. Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
  3. Whip It! (Originally titled DERBY GIRL.)
  4. Atonement
  5. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World


  1. Wait. Whip It is a book? Oh, hell! I loved the movie way too much (mainly because I feel like high school Alison could be BFFs with Ellen Page's character in this and her character in Juno!).

    I'm excited now. And looking to see if the library has the book.

  2. I disliked To Kill a Mockingbird as well (or, actually, just found it kind of boring...) so you're not the only one! So many people like it that I always feel bad when I admit that I didn't really see what all the fuss was about. Read it in 9th grade too and our teacher did it absolutely to death so that could definitely be contributing to my negative association with it, lol.

    Which P&P adaptation do you like?

  3. Danya: I can't choose! I loved the Colin Firth one forever, but then the Keira Knightly one came along and I fell that that one too! I really can't choose... it depends on my mood.

  4. 'Jellicoe Road' and 'The Sky is Everywhere' are my two favourite books aswell!
    Since you have such fantastic taste in books I'll definetly be pre-ordering 'Anna and the French Kiss' :)
    I've heard amazing things about it.

  5. I am SO honored to have made your 5 Faves list! You made my day - again. It's okay that you didn't like TAKM, as long as you understand that Atticus is totally dreamy . . . and totally mine.


Make sure you whisper, I'm hiding!
