Another book meme

Captain's Log, Stardate 01.23.2008

Michelle tagged me!

One book that changed your life.
I actually have two:
A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Dragonsong by Anne McCaffrey
They both opened new worlds to me and made me dream about writing my own.

One book that you have read more than once.
Persuasion by Jane Austen

One book you would want on a desert island.
The Bible

Two books that made you laugh.
Theodora’s Diary by Penny Culliford
SAHM I Am by Meredith Efken

One book that made you cry.
One book that made me both laugh and cry was Reconstructing Natalie by Laura Jensen Walker

One book you wish you'd written.
Any Harry Potter book. I mean, it’s so creative, with lots of conflict (but not too much) and terrific plotting.

One book you wish had never been written.
Shoot me if you want, but I can’t stand Wuthering Heights. I’ve tried several times to read this book—I even tried it on audio book once—and I simply can’t finish it. I don’t like any of the characters! Why should I suffer through this “classic” when I can’t stand any of the people in it?

Two books you are currently reading.
Her Unlikely Family by Missy Tippens
Skid by Rene Gutteridge (releases May 2008)

One book you've been meaning to read.
Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See

Any of you! Leave a comment with the answers or a link to the blog post where you’ve participated in the meme with me!


  1. I took the challange.
    I never read Wuthering Heights either
    for that matter i didn't read quite a few of those sort of books.

  2. Oh thank God there is someone else in the world who did not like Wuthering Heights. I read the whole book. I'm like that; once I start a book I have to finish it. But I still hated the characters just as much (if not more) at the end as I did at the beginning. I honestly do not know how it became such a classic.

  3. Cami,
    Thanks for playing along.


  4. I posted mine on my blog:

    And amen to the whole Wuthering Heights thing. I hated it (though I did actually finish it and believe me, you aren't missing anything if you quit halfway through).
