The Ultimate Book Bash Tag! Post 2!
I do hope you're all having as much fun as me...between giveaways, author interviews, and of course, this tag, I'm keeping busy. :)
I already completed the first 10 questions, so we're making progress here!
11. Hardcover or softcover? I usually prefer softcover, but not a flimsy paperback type. I can't stand dust-jackets on books. One of my unusual quirks. :P :)
12. Louisa May Alcott or Lucy Maud Montgomery? Name your favorite book by the author you chose. Ouch. Ummm...this is hard. Probably Alcott. No, Montgomery. It's a total toss-up. Ah! I will use a random number generator and have it choose a number between 1 and 20. Evens is Alcott, odds is Montgomery. The answer is...4! That's Alcott. Okay, I love Little Women. I know a few people who don't like it just because so many people do, but I find it one of those stories that I can (and have) read hundreds of times. :)
13. Jane Austen or Charlotte Bronte? Name your favorite book by the author you chose. Jane Austen. Though I enjoy Bronte, Austen is better. I absolutely adore Pride and Prejudice. (nobody sees that I'm adding this note...Emma is a close second)
14. Would you rather read historical fiction about the sinking of the Titanic or the Civil War? Like I said before, I find both fiction and non-fiction accounts about tragedies very interesting but sad. So the Titanic is what I'd read about.
15. What's your favorite classic? Why? Pride and Prejudice. Aren't I boring? I love Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. I love Jane Austen's writing style. I love the wicked characters and the annoying ones, because they're annoying. It's just one awesome book.
16. Little Women or A Little Princess? Little Women.
17. What's your favorite time period to read about? The 1800's. I've read tons of books from then, both written then, and written about that time. I find it engrossing!
18. G. A. Henty, J. R. R. Tolkien, or Charles Dickens? What's your favorite book or series by the author you chose? J. R. R. Tolkien. While I enjoy all these authors (sometimes), Tolkien is definitely my favorite. I love the Lord of the Rings series.
19. Ivanhoe or Ben-Hur? Ben-Hur. I don't love either of these books, but Ben-Hur is easier and more intersting to me. (though, incidentally, the movies are both great)
20. Name three books everyone should read. But there are so many! Other than the Bible, there's Pride and Prejudice. Because once you read it, you hear it referenced all the time. Little Women, because it's such a classic. And it's a toss-up between The Hobbit and The Chronicles of Narnia series. But one and both of those. :)
More coming soon!
