The Book Meme- Two Weeks Late but Finally Here!

The divine Melchior from Mortlake on the Schuylkill has tagged me on a book meme. I am very late in doing my bit, but here it finally is!

1. One book that changed your life:

The Wizard Of Oz by L. Frank Baum
I had seen the movie and loved it, but getting ahold of the book was a revelation. I collected the series and reread them so many times that they are falling apart without mercy. My childhood was very fulfilled by a simple book.

2. One book you have read more than once:

Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
Beautiful. Devastating. Descriptive beyond compare. Unreal.

3. One book you would want on a desert island:

A Gentleman’s Game by Greg Rucka
Pure genius.

4. One book that made you laugh:

Sex With Kings by Eleanor Herman
Clever anecdotes about royal mistresses throughout the ages.

5. One book that made you cry:

A Gentleman’s Game by Greg Rucka
I don’t want to spoil it- just read it.

6. One book you wish had been written:

My Weird Life- A soap opera by me...
It's still not too late!

7. One book you wish had never been written:

Life Laughs by Jenny McCarthy
I was very disappointed after loving her first two books.

8. One book you are currently reading:

Born to Rule by Julia P. Gelardi
A book about five reigning consorts that were all granddaughters of Queen Victoria. I am fascinated with royal intrigue.

9. One book you have been meaning to read:

The Sisters by Mary Lovell
It is on my book shelf, and I just haven’t gotten to it yet. It is an imposing looking tome and I have had a short attention span lately.

10. Tag five people!

I hate doing this to people. How about this- if you are linked on my sidebar and you haven’t done it yet, go for it! E-mail me and I will link you.

Definitely. The book meme is one of the best ones I have had the chance to participate in.
