My Life According to the Books I've Read

I saw this bookish meme over at Today's Adventure and figured I'd give it a shot. Some of the prompts are a bit inane, but the idea is a fun one. If you do it, make sure to let me know so I can check it out.

Using only books you have read this year (2009), cleverly answer these questions. Try not to repeat a book title. It's a lot harder than you think!

    What great fun! I've seen this meme going around...

    I like your answer to what life is to you! Hehe, when I read your favorite form of transportation I was thinking, "Does she plan on riding on a big dog?" stupid..stupid..

  3. Juju, I'm glad! As they don't appear to be going away any time soon. :)

    Vanessa, LOL! It frightens me as well. Seriously, that one worked too well not to use, even if it wasn't entirely accurate...;)

    Marie, yeah, I thought it was as well.

    Sharry, I know. That one probably works least of all but it was the only one remotely connected to transportation, and still a stretch at that!

  7. Kath, I'm glad! I saw yours and they are particularly good. Though to die by the Hunger Games *shivers*.

    Jenni, wow, that was fast! And you're right! It is harder than you think. I particularly like your way you would like to die. ;)

On Angie, the Relative Scarcity Thereof

I've been a bit scarce round these parts of late and I feel badly about it. But there is a good reason and I've been waiting until today to share it with you. Just so I could include one rather pertinent detail. It's a boy! Fortunately I'm at the point where I'm starting to feel better, so things should soon start resembling business as usual around here. I, for one, am relieved.

Forever Blog Tour + Giveaway!

I'm awfully excited to be a part of this unique blog tour in celebration of the release of Forever by the insanely talented Maggie Stiefvater .  Scholastic recently launched an online community called  This Is Teen  to connect readers with their favorite YA authors and books. Visit their page on   Facebook   for all the latest news on   Maggie Stiefvater   and   Forever .  Each stop on the tour is hosting a particular character from the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy, and I have the good luck to be the stop for Sam--my favorite emo-wolfboy!  Sam is so very endearing, in a decidedly non-angsty or overt way. His breathtaking blend of maturity and vulnerability tugs at my heartstrings and the strength of his relationship with Grace is unswerving.  He is warm and thoughtful and artistic, and I liked him right from the start of the series . Because I can't resist, here are two of my favorite Sam quotes, the first from Grace's point of view in  Shiver and the second from Sam&
