Because Emily Tagged Me…

(I’m going to preface this by saying that these days, I read fluff. I like fluff. Fluff is good. Don’t judge me!)

1. A Book that Changed Your Life
“Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret” by Judy Blume. I mean, shucks… what preadolescent girl didn’t read that one?!

2. A Book You’ve Read More Than Once
I am actually a re-reader. Many many many I have read more than once. Including: “She’s Come Undone” by Wally Lamb, “The Pilot’s Wife” by Anita Shreve, “Summer Sisters” by Judy Blume (Judy for grownups – how excited was I? But don’t kid yourselves, because it reads very much like a young adult sorta novel… I’m sorta embarassed to admit that I liked it!)

3. A Book You’d Take onto a Desert Island
Just one? Can’t think of one…

4. A Book That Made You Laugh
“Stop Dressing Your Six Year Old Like A Skank” by Celia Rivenbark – if you think the first grade girls are starting to dress like hoochies, you will probably find this amusing.

5. A Book That Made You Cry
“All The Numbers” – wish I could remember who wrote it. Also “Suzanne’s Letters to Nicholas” or something like that. Sad. “The Pact” by Jodi Piccoult, also. Btw, Jodi Picoult rocks. I read all her stuff.

6. A Book You Wish Had Been Written
? I don’t know – but I’ll answer for Stepson who wishes there will be a never ending stream of Harry Potter.

7. A Book You Wish Had Never Been Written
“Gone With the Wind” – I read almost the whole thing, an ddidn’t finish (back in jr high) and now I don’t want to start again, and it’s always gonna be that darn book I didn’t finish.

8. A Book You’re Currently Reading
Just wrapping up two right now: “The Explosive Child” (by Dr Ross Green, about children who are explosive/inflexible/easily frustrated), and for fluff: “I am Not Julia Roberts” by Laura Ruby, which is a funny (but fictional) look at life in blended families.

9. A Book You’ve Been Meaning To Read
The Saul Bellow book my dad bought me for Christmas

10. Now Tag Five People You Want to Hear From
You, you, you, you and you… Tell me if you do this (I think Emily got most every one – so if you feel compelled to do this – let me know! I always love a great book recommendation!)

    Just checking out everyone’s booklist and I have to admit that I wish I’d listed “Are You There God It’s Me Margaret?” as the book that changed my life. Awesome answer.
