Literary Junkies

Pink Heels Pink Truck 
It's another Literary Junkies link up!  I'm just going to get right into it!

1. What are you reading right now? Tell us about it!
Right now I'm reading Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay.  It's our book club book for this month, and although I'm not too far into it, I'm really enjoying it!  It's also probably a book that I never would have chosen to read on my own.  

There are two different stories going on.  One of a young Jewish girl living in Paris during the war.  It is about this time when the French police rounded up all of the Jews in Paris and sent them to death camps.  I had never even heard of this before!

The other story is about a middle aged woman in modern day Paris.  I haven't gotten to the connection between the two stories yet, but so far both stories are keeping me interested.
2. What was your favorite series to read when you were a kid?
Without a doubt it was Nancy Drew.  I read them all!

3. The world is ending: What 3 books do you save from your collection in hopes to contribute to whatever new society forms?
Tough question.  Harry Potter.  Even though technically half of the collection is mine, half is my brothers and they all live at my parents house.  I guess I would just grab three random books from the series!  Maybe the first one, the last one and one in the middle. 
Harry potter, mortal instruments, infernal devices, hunger games, Percy Jackson, divergent, and many many more.
4. What is your favorite genre to read? Why?
Apparently it's young adult.  But I also really like mystery thriller type books and some chick lit for an easy read.

5. If you wrote a book about your life, what would the title be?
Ginger Snap.  I don't know.

6. What is next on your “to-read” list? Tell us about it!
The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith/JK Rowling is on there, as soon as my brother brings it home from school!  I still haven't read Where We Belong by Emily Giffin so I really want to read that one.

What have you been reading lately?



  1. I picked the Harry Potter series as one of my books to save-only I cheated and counted the series as one book. :)

  2. I loved the quote you used to go along with your three book choices-you are so right. Some stories just stay with us forever and they can be told countless times to countless ears and someone, somewhere will hear them and relate. Good stuff! Thanks for linking up with us at Literary Junkies today!

  3. I'm reading Sarah's Key right now, too. So far, it is really interesting!

  4. The Cuckoo's Calling was SO GOOD. It's an old-fashioned British murder mystery; you'll really enjoy it!

  5. I love all those genres. I read practically everything. Or at least, I've never turned a book down. Thanks for linking up!
