Literary Junkies Link Up

Friday, November 22, 2013

I don’t have any book reviews to share this week. I’ve been having trouble concentrating on reading when I’ve been so addicted to watching Scandal! (I’m all caught up now – expect a full post on my love for the show next week!) So instead of my usual weekly report on what I’ve been reading, today I just have the Literary Junkies Link Up, which I always enjoy participating in!

1) What are you currently reading? Tell us about it!


The Seduction of Miriam Cross by WA Tyson – I will be reviewing this in 2 weeks for TLC Book Tours!

2) How many books have you read this year? Do you set reading goals for yourself?

I read 59 books in the year between my last birthday and this one. I had a goal of 25 books so I pretty much crushed that goal!

3) What do you think are the best and worst book-to-movie/TV show adaptations?

I don’t have a best really. One that was not very good for me was My Sister’s Keeper due to a major change made from the book to the movie!

4) What is the first line of your favorite book?

“It’s hard being left behind.” – Clare in The Time Traveler’s Wife.

5) What’s your favorite quote from a book?

“I am nothing special; of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts, and I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough.” - Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook.
