Are you all ready for the Ultimate Book Bash tag questions? Hopefully you have yours filled out already. :) I'm looking forward to reading your answers! Make sure you leave me a link so I get you put into the wrap-up post!
Now, on to ME answering the questions. :)
1. Name three books you love. As I said before, the Bible is a given. I also love Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy, and Head in the Clouds by Karen Witemeyer. Wow, those three are all very different!
2. Name two books you enjoy, but most people probably haven't heard of. Ummm....Keeper of the Light by Patty Metzer, and Livvie's Song by Sharlene MacLaren. You really need to read both of those. :)
3. Name three series you love. The Love Comes Softly eight book series by Janette Oke, The Chronicles of Narnia seven book series by C. S. Lewis, Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien, and the Anne of Green Gables eight book series by L. M. Montgomery. Whoops, four. Sorry, can't narrow it down. **(don't the ones in the picture below make your mouth water? Glossy hard-covers...heaven. :)**
4. Name three authors you love. Jane Austen. Bodie Thoene. Grace Livingston Hill.
5. How about three adventures or mysteries? Once again, I've gotta mention The Scarlet Pimpernel, one of the best mystery/adventures ever. Then Murder on the Oriental Express is a classic Agatha Christie mystery, and then The Lightkeeper's Daugher by Colleen Coble (it was an awesome romance/mystery).
6. Three non-fiction. I just finished enjoying Miracles on the Water by Tom Nagorski. Then Triangle by David VonDrehle, and The Atlas of Middle-Earth by Karen Wynn Fonstad. Yes, I tend to find tragedies very interesting though sad to read about.
7. Nancy Drew or Hardy Boys? Which book in your favorite set is your favorite? That's hard, because I enjoy both of them, despite their predictability. What a word! Ummm...I think Hardy Boys at the moment. The Disappearing Floor. It's exciting. :)
8. Narnia or Harry Potter? Name your favorite from the series you like best. Narnia all the way. Though I know a few people who enjoy HP, I haven't read any of the books or seen the movies. But I must say that they really don't appeal to me. Now Narnia, I love it! I'm a huge fan. My favorite is The Silver Chair, but The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is a close second.
9. A cookbook or how-to-sew book? Cookbook. I love reading cookbooks, specifically ones from Taste of Home. The Baking Book is my favorite.
10. Historical fiction or fantasy? Name three books you like from the genre you chose. Why did I make these questions so hard? I love both of those. Today I'm in the mood for historical fiction. I enjoyed Jewel of Persia by Roseanna M. White, Coronation of Glory by Deborah Meroff, and Hood by Stephen Lawhead. Those are, respectively, about Esther (from the Bible), Lady Jane Grey (from King Henry VIII's time), and Robin Hood.
I think I'm going to split these questions up into at least three posts. And this is the end of the first one! Remember, I've reviewed most of the books I mention here! Not all, but many. So if they wet your curiosity, by all means, look them up! By author might be easiest, or ask me for other particulars. Or I could just find the post for you. :)
