2. COUNT YOUR AGE ALONG YOUR BOOKSHELF – WHICH BOOK IS IT?

1,2,3….21

SylviaCoincidentally I finished my third re-read of Entwined With You this morning.

 

3. PICK A BOOK SET IN YOUR CITY/STATE/COUNTRY.

moxylandMoxyland is a South African dystopian novel set in a Cape Town run by the need for technology and a society separated into divisions which can and cannot afford to own a cellphone and a SIM card. The futuristic dystopian is commentary about South Africa’s racial past just set in a cyberpunk reality.

 

4. PICK A BOOK THAT REPRESENTS A DESTINATION YOU WOULD LIKE TO TRAVEL TO.

Where Rainbows End/ Love, Rosie by Cecelia Ahern (The title varies depending on which edition you have)

DUBLIN!!!!!!!

5. PICK A BOOK THAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE COLOUR,.

I don’t have a favourite colour, but I really love the colour of Fangirl, the light mint reminds me of summer.

6. WHICH BOOK DO YOU HAVE THE FONDEST MEMORIES OF?

Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte.

wuthering-heights

I read this book in grade 11 and it made me fall in love with literature. It was after reading this book that I realized I loved books and I decided to study English Lit instead of Climatology.

 

7. WHICH BOOK DID YOU HAVE THE MOST DIFFICULTY READING?

This one is easy: Great Expectations by Charles Dickens

GREAT EXPECTATIONS

This book was part of my second year reading list, I bought my copy well before the start of the semester but only finished it the morning of my English final because it was so tough for me to concentrate when I read it. It was pretentious and verbose and I disliked it so strongly that it took me 6 months to finish.

 

8. WHICH BOOK IN YOUR TBR PILE WILL GIVE YOU THE BIGGEST SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT WHEN YOU FINISH IT?

The Lord of the Rings Trilogy.

I am a huge LOTR fan so finishing this trilogy would be great!

Lia from Book Land

Anna from My Bookish Dream

 

Have fun guys!!!!!

    I would love to go to Ireland as well. I may go with some of my friends in the future (which I very much hope will happen). 🙂 I am a big Lord of the Rings fan ❤ (I love both the books and the movies). I seriously need to re-watch the movies soon, it's been way too long since the last time I saw them. 😀

October is my birthday month, so consider this an invitation to my month-long birthday party. Hope to see you over at That’s So Jacob sometime! Ciao for now!
