My friend, Jackie, from Bookworm Cafe posted her responses to this challenge during July, so it put it on my own radar. I decided to take it up for the month of August. The challenge originated, it appears, with Good Books & Good Wine, so credit for the prompts goes to them!
TODAY’S PROMPT: MAKE 15 BOOK RELATED CONFESSIONS
- I have never read the Harry Potter series. I have, however, seen the movies.
- I am learning still, even at 37 years of age, what type of books that I enjoy.
- I am learning that my favorite genre appears to be mystery books. I can always push through them unlike other books.
- Growing up I read a lot of R.L. Stine’s Fear Street series.
- As an adult I have purchased a lot of the “Fear Street” series and it is a series that I intend to eventually own all the books of.
- My favorite series ever is “The Prydain Chronicles” by Lloyd Alexander. Most people know only “The Black Cauldron” from this series.
- Another series I read heavily growing up was “The Babysitters Club” by Ann M. Martin.
- My favorite babysitter from “The Babysitters Club” was junior member Mallory Pike!
- I also read “Sweet Valley High” and “Sweet Valley University” books growing up.
- My least favorite genre tends to be a tie between many YA and Science Fiction books. (It can be argued that YA has become a genre at this point, not just an age category)
- I have 7 shelves of books in my house. My partner told me recently that I need to get rid of some. If I didn’t agree with him, he would have been told to get out hehe.
- The two series that I want to complete reading the most, that I haven’t for some reason, is the “Tales of the City” series by Armistead Maupin and “Women’s Murder Club” by James Patterson.
- I don’t care if my series books match. The first book can be paperback, the next hardcover and another back to paperback. This doesn’t bother me. I am more concerned with getting to read them, not what they look like.
- I buy most of my books from used bookstores.
- I don’t tend to read advance reader copies because I like to read finished copies and support the authors that I review. It seems weird to be a book blogger and have this philosophy, but it is my truth. I like supporting the author by giving them my money.
