It’s Monday so that means I read this weekend and today I will write up my findings. In theory.
I must say the following: Last week E called Mercedes Lackey my “literary lover” as I have been reading all her books (and often take one to bed). *sigh*
Books I’ve finished in the past week include:
Rachel and Leah by Orson Scott Card. (368 pages)
Think of this type of novel or the author what you will. I admit I enjoyed it, though not nearly as much as The Red Tent or Ender’s Game. Perhaps because a character hit a little too close to home.
Owlsight and Owlknight by Mercedes Lackey (450 and 326 pages respectively)
I have now read all of the major novels of Valdemar, there are a few anthologies left. I recommend the entire series. I will probably reread it either over winter break or next summer. At least now I don’t have such a strong excuse for not doing my school work. I’m sad to be finished…
Lastly, I’ve seen this meme floating around. If tagged with a meme I may do it if I find it interesting. I won’t tag onward. In the past it has caused too many bruised feelings (which is why I am hesitant to put links to friends on my sidebar, if you feel you should be there, please let me know, it’s nothing personal, I forget to update it for eons at a time). Also, I’ve been saddened by not being tagged. I want to be included in the group, it hurts to be the outsider. For the most part the responses below are of very recent books, mostly because I can’t remember all the books that have made me cry. There are many of them. Oh, and I changed a few things around…
Book Meme (with a few changes by myself)
- One book that changed your life: The Black Gryphon by Mercedes Lackey (it started the summer of Valdemar. Thank you geeknoob, I mean it. Thank you.)
- One book that you’ve read more than once: The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgeson Burnett
- One book you’d want on a desert island: The Opinionated Knitter by Elizabeth Zimmermann
- One book that made you laugh: The Modern Jewish Girl’s Guide to Guilt
by Ruth Andrew Ellenson
- One book that made you cry: Probably every book I’ve read. Especially when I identify to the characters. I was teary-eyed through much of Valdemar.
- One book that you wish you had been written: The Fire Rose by Mercedes Lackey
- One book you wish had never been written: The Life of Pi by Yann Martel
- One book you’re currently reading: Life on the Fringes: A Feminist Journey Towards Traditional Rabbinic Ordination by Haviva Ner-David
OneTwo books you’ve been meaning to read: Hominids by Robert J Sawyer and Joseph Heller’s Catch 22. (and it was a random pick that chose those two. There are MANY books I’ve been meaning to read)
- One book you would give to everyone if you were rich: It’s a tie between Gift of the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh and a blank notebook to write one’s own thoughts in.
