Literary Junkies Link Party!



Literary Junkies Link Party!

I have missed doing this link party the past few months, but here I am, at it again!  I love surfing around other blogs and seeing what people are reading.  I love that a lot of people still read! I actually wish I had more time to read!  I would love to just sit in bed and read for one whole afternoon.  A cup of tea and a good book equals some lovely Mommy time!  

Hmmm, I may have to talk to the husband about that one...

Anyway, if you are a book lover, head on over to visit Lesley at By The Porchlight for the Literary Junkies Link Party and link up with us!


1.  What are you currently reading?  Tell us about it.

I am currently reading The Poetry of Robert Frost:  The Collected Poems, Complete and Unabridged.  I have had this book for quite awhile and never took the chance to sit down and read it cover to cover.  A few weeks ago I decided that it would be a good time to do that.  So far, so good.  

2.  What is one book you think every person should read at least once in their life?  Why? 

Oh, wow.  Hmm...  I am going to have to go with God Shaped Hole by Tiffany DiBartolo.  However, I am not going to tell you why.  I am going to show you a couple of quotes from this book and let you all decide for yourselves.

“We’re all searching for something to fill up what I like to call that big, God-shaped hole in our souls. Some people use alcohol, or sex, or their children, or food, or money, or music, or heroin. A lot of people even use the concept of God itself. I could go on and on. I used to know a girl who used shoes. She had over two-hundred pairs. But it’s all the same thing, really. People, for some stupid reason, think they can escape their sorrows.” 

The days will always be brighter because he existed.
The nights will always be darker because he's gone.
And no matter what anybody says about grief, and about time healing all wounds, the truth is, there are certain sorrows that never fade away until the heart stops beating and the last breath is taken.” 



Okay, now you can decide for yourselves.  

3.  Do you think you could ever write a book?  If so, what genre would it be?

I would love to write a book!  I want to write and publish at least one before I die.  I am not sure what genre, though.  I love to write about my life, but at the same time, I love to get creative and sculpt character's and situations.  I also love to write poetry (although it has been awhile).  Can I just write them all?  Ha!

4.  Do you listen to audiobooks?  Do you look for the same things in an audiobook that you do in one you will read?  

I don't do audiobooks. 

5.  Can you suggest a book of each for others to try: 

Fantasy: This is when I say I have not read The Hunger Games nor the Harry Potter Series. I'm not much into fantasy reading. Just not my cup of tea.

Nonfiction:The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls.  

Fiction:  She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb

Romance: Ya know, I haven't really tried to read any romance novels.  I may need to find a good series to start with.  Suggestions?  HA!  

Classics:  Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

Young Adult: The House of Night Series

  1. Hi there! Thanks for your comment on my link-up post :] If you do read any I recommended, you have to let me know how you like them :] I just love talking books with people!
    Robert Frost is lovely! I think it's awesome that you're reading an entire book of his poetry. I bet it's an escape into something truly lovely. Poetry does that--exposes the very brightest and very darkest.
    I've heard of the Glass Castle, Fahrenheit 451, and Wally Lamb, but I've not picked those up, yet. I just might have to add them to my list, especially Fahrenheit 451 :]
    Have a wonderful week!

  2. I recommend anything by Rachel Gibson for your Romance genre. Not too ooeey gooeey if you know what I mean. And I love Debbie Macomber books as well.

  3. Thanks Taylor! I am not a fan of ooeey gooeey, so I will definitely check both of them out!
