Thanks to Fat Books & Thin Women for posting about it.
This was a little something I am going to try to do, the 30 Days of Christmas Meme. It's a meme where you answer a question each day of December! The questions can be found at The Indie Exchange. I am starting it a bit late, but it seems fun! I also know I probably won't be able to do a post everyday, but I am going to try!! I making it a 30 Days Challenge for myself! So, to catch up, I am going to do days 1 through 6 in one post. I do have to say, these are some are very hard questions!!
Day 01 – The best book you read this year:
Okay, so this is a very hard question. I have read some amazing books this year. Some that have left me in a reading stump for days, ones I couldn't get out of my mind no matter how hard I tried. Picking just one, is pretty impossible. So, I'm going to attempt picking five books. Dear lord. Help me!
1. Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout
2. Poison Princess by Kresley Cole
3. Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins
4. Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire
5. Ashen Winter by Mike Mullin
That was hard, there are still so many books that were just fan-freakin'-tastic that I have read. But that is my top 5.
Day 02 – A book that you've read more than three times:
Okay, so this one is easy, I have read Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout at least four times now. That is one of my favorite series and a book I just couldn't get enough of. I re-read it so many times waiting for the next book in the series to come out :) I have the original and the revamped cover. If that says anything to how much I love this series. Also have both hard copies and ebook copies of all the books out in the series. But it was the original Obsidian cover I couldn't get my nose out of!
Day 03 – Your favorite series:
Another hard questions. I have many favorite series. Old and new a like. So, I'm going to do another list once again. Also, it'll be my top five, but I do have many series I just love to death!!
1. Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout
2. Soul Screamers Series by Rachel Vincent
3. Sweet Evil Series by Wendy Higgins
4. Covenant Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout
5. Ashfall series by Mike Mullin
I'm beginning to see to see a pattern of my favorite authors!!
Day 04 – Favorite book of your favorite series:
One of my favorite books in a series right now would have to be Deity. The third book in the Covenant series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. What she done in that book was purely amazing. Usually the second or third book in a series feels forced or drags on. Isn't as good as the first book, however, when it comes to Jennifer she makes each book in her series amazing. And Deity is a fine example of that. It had everything I want in a book, packed away in it. From fierce heroine, swoon worthy guy, action, romance and a twist you didn't see coming.
Day 05 – A book that makes you happy:
A book that makes me happy? Well, this is hard. Happiness can be describe in many ways, and what kind of 'happiness' does this question mean? Does is mean a book that throughout reading it I was happy? Or a book that the overall feeling, after finishing it was one of happiness?
Answering both of those questions is hard enough. Honestly, I have no answer to this question. There are many different kinds of happiness. Those we feel as adults and those we feel as children. There are books that give us both or one or the other 'kind of happiness'.
Therefore, I'm going to pick what I feel this question means to me. I'm going to go with what book, at the end, brought me happiness. That made me happy with how it ended. Made me feel satisfied. And that would have to be the Harry Potter series. It not only represents my childhood, but also brings back memories that I cherish. I know it isn't a specific book, but as a whole, it is one book. And this 'book' was amazing. Just thinking and even talking about it makes me happy. Just the mention of Harry Potter, brings back memories and puts a smile on my face.
Day 06 – A book that makes you sad:
A book that makes me sad, dear Lord, I usually stay away from books that make me sad. That make my heart break, and leave me weeping like a new born baby. This year, I did read such a book though. It was a request by an author who I have come to know and befriend. This book was an emotional roller coaster and by the end I was crying so hard-the ugly kind of crying-I couldn't see the words in the book from my tears. This book was Defy the Stars by Stephanie Parent. Defy the Stars took my heart on a trip that left it spinning and hurting. Afterwards my face was red and puffy from crying. So, Defy the Stars is a book that not only made me sad, but had me crying like a fat kid who was denied chocolate cake.
