YOUR MARCH CO-HOST: SARA FROM A PLETHORA OF PONDERINGS
 



And now it's time for the questions!  

1.  What are you reading right now?  Tell us about it!
I'm not currently reading anything right now because I have been so busy with the blog re-brand...and potty training a toddler....
2.  What was your favorite series to read when you were a kid? 
The Little House on the Prairie series.  I adored those books.  My aunt got me hooked on them (she also did that with the Nancy Drew series) and those books transported me.  That series is what really got me into reading. 
3.  The world is ending: What 3 books do you save from your collection in hopes to contribute to whatever new society forms?
This was one of the questions I made up for today's link up and I always wonder this about other book lovers.  (If you have read Fahrenheit 451, then you know where I'm coming from when I ask this. If you haven't, go...read it now.) Anyway, my three books would be: Edgar Allan Poe: Complete Tales & Poems, The Norton Anthology of Western Literature, and Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison. 
4.  What is your favorite genre to read? Why?
I will read anything as long as it isn't those mass produced Harlequin Romance type of books.  Those are just not for me. 
5.  If you wrote a book about your life, what would the title be?
Shadow Girl
6.  What is next on your "to read" list?  Tell us about it!
My mom brought me a book recently that was written by the actor that plays Kurt (Chris Colfer) on the show Glee.  It's called The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell and I'm pretty excited to read it.  Mom said it was pretty good, so I'm going to give it a whirl. Here's the Goodreads synopsis: 


Alex and Conner Bailey's world is about to change, in this fast-paced adventure that uniquely combines our modern day world with the enchanting realm of classic fairy tales. 

"The Land of Stories" tells the tale of twins Alex and Conner. Through the mysterious powers of a cherished book of stories, they leave their world behind and find themselves in a foreign land full of wonder and magic where they come face-to-face with the fairy tale characters they grew up reading about. 
But after a series of encounters with witches, wolves, goblins, and trolls alike, getting back home is going to be harder than they thought.

Like I said, I will read anything as long as it isn't Harlequin Romance stuff. :) 


And that's it for this month!  If you want to participate in our link up, write a post up answering the questions provided and link up!  I love going around and seeing what everyone is reading and how they answered the monthly questions.  It's a lot of fun and you can wind up adding new books to your "to read" list! :)

  3. Hmm I wrote for my answers that I didn't remember any series from when I was a kid, isn't that a new trend, blah blah blah
    but I TOTALLY forgot Nancy Drew and Little House on the Prairie. I read those voraciously!

  4. Hi! I Love your blog name!

    I was a massive Nancy Drew fan too! Chris Colfer's book sounds interesting - is it aimed at younger readers? I'll be checking out Farenheit 451 too! Thanks for hosting this week :)

  5. I hate Fahrenheit 451!! I hated it because I just never want to even think about living in a society like that one. I would be absolutely miserable
