1. What author do you own the most books by?

4. What book have you read more than any other?

I very rarely re-read books. The few that I have: HATCHET, THE TRUE CONFESSIONS OF CHARLOTTE DOYLE, and Z FOR ZACHARIAH. They were all books they "forced" us to read in school and I reread in the last year or so.

Probably MISTY OF CHINCOTEAGUE or KING OF THE WIND, both by Marguerite Henry.

6. What is the worst book you’ve read in the past year?

EEK. There are a number of popular books I finally got around to reading that I didn't care for. THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE was a big disapointment for me.

I have to chooose? How about a short list. GOING TOO FAR by Jennifer Echols, THE BODY FINDER by Kim Derting(2010), THE FOREST OF HANDS AND TEETH by Carrie Ryan, and  A MATCH MADE IN HIGH SCHOOL by Kristin Walker(2010).

12. Austen or Eliot?

Dude, really, you're asking that? Austen.

Classics. I've never read SOOO Many of them. LORD OF THE FLIES, JANE EYRE, WAR & PEACE, A FAREWELL TO ARMS.... my reading skews very commercial, so I tend to skip the classics. Sigh.

I'm supposed to choose ONE? How about Z for Zachariah. i really do love that one.

Er, none of the above please.

Haven't read any.

I had no idea what to post today, so thank you for this meme. I added it to my LJ. I love book memes!

I agree 100% that Stephenie Meyer is overrated.

Z for Zac was one of my faves as a teen:)
Apr. 23rd, 2009 06:19 pm (UTC)
She may be overrated, but she is doing extremely well :]
Apr. 23rd, 2009 06:23 pm (UTC)
Of course! You can't be overated unless you're commercially successful.

So in other words, someone needs to call me overrated.

I don't begrudge her AT ALL, becuase she's single-handedly brought a TON of readers into the bookstores again, and we all benefit from that.

I can't wait to buy your book :] I can tell i'm going to love it already. Hopefully many others will too!
Apr. 23rd, 2009 06:44 pm (UTC)
Your last three favorite authors are also must-buys for me :) I love reading these!
Apr. 23rd, 2009 08:32 pm (UTC)
This is so fun! I just posted it too. I love seeing what everyone else reads.
Apr. 24th, 2009 03:30 am (UTC)
I love Gavin from The Season as well!
Apr. 24th, 2009 08:11 am (UTC)
Wow! THE TRUE CONFESSIONS OF CHARLOTTE DOYLE! I am so impressed that your read that in school. That was a fantastic book. The books I was forced to read in high school were far less inspired choices.

We did! And we had to do projects on it and I remember a friend & I filmed a re-enactment in her garage, only it was supposed to be the cargo hold. HA.
Apr. 24th, 2009 03:05 pm (UTC)
OOps, that was me. :-)
Apr. 24th, 2009 01:29 pm (UTC)
Aw, you're lovely. And ditto!

Great meme.

I LOVE Lauren Barndholt. She's, like, the nicest girl EVER. Ohmigosh!

Have you read Reality Chick by her? It was adorable :)
Apr. 28th, 2009 03:04 am (UTC)
Yeah, i've read all of hers-- MG & YA. She's thanked in my acknowledgements. Which she doesn't know. ha.
Apr. 28th, 2009 03:12 am (UTC)
It's so weird you're, like, BFF with her (well...by writer's standards anyway). I used to instant message with her when RC came out. I need to read more by her because she's just the cutest.

Aw- acknowledgements! I love those things! :)
