Name a book that should have been good but left the foulest taste in your mouth…
Eragon by Christopher Paolini I had such high hopes … I am taken with fantasy, dragons, etc…, but this was such a Lord of the Rings rip off! I was so disappointed.
Name a book that you couldn’t help but laugh at the jokes or characters
For this one, I have two:
- The Innocent Abroad by Mark Twain – I was only in my teens when I read this book, but I remember laughing hysterically. Now I want to go back and reread it!
- The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams – So funny! I also really loved the movie!
Bunson Honeydew and Beaker
Name a book that made you feel a little smarter by the end of it
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens – I learned so much about the French Revolution! This is still one of my all time favorite pieces of literature!
Name a book where a character or something about the book drives you crazy
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte – Okay, first of all, let me just say that I LOVE this book!! It is very well written, and I like stories of forbidden love, however; I chose this book because of Heathcliff. Once again, don’t get me wrong, I love the man, I was rooting for him throughout the books entirety, however; I was so annoyed by him because I just wanted him to come barging in and take Catherine away. He was clearly the best match for her, and she was head over heels in love with him, he just needed to grow a spine! I like my men with some backbone!!
Name a book that was an easy read and gave you good vibes
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee – What a fantastic read. Also, one of my all time favorites!!
Stalter & Waldorf
A book that you loved and was turned into a movie that you hated
Dr. Suess’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas (2000 live action version) – I loved the book as a child, and I still love the original animated version. I remember being so psyched to see the live action version with Jim Carrey, but I was so let down by it. I guess maybe, it lost some of it’s charm. I also didn’t think the acting was all that great, nor did I find the movie funny.
I am looking forward to Illumination’s adaptation coming out this November!
