Life According to Literature

I saw this on Dorothy’s blog and thought I’d have a go too.

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

Describe yourself: The Madonna of the Almonds (Mariana Fiorata)

How do you feel: A Lost Lady (Willa Catha)

Describe where you currently live: We Have Always Lived in the Castle (Shirley Jackson)

If you could go anywhere, where would you go: Wuthering Heights (Emily Bronte)

Your favorite form of transportation: Doors Open (Ian Rankin) (the best I could do)

Your best friend is: Jane Austen (Claire Tomalin)

You and your friends are: Tangled Roots (Sue Guiney)

What’s the weather like: Turbulence (Gile Foden)

You fear: The Hound of Death (Agatha Christie)

What is the best advice you have to give: Elephants Can Remember (Agatha Christie)

Thought for the day: When Will There Be Good News? (Kate Atkinson)

How I would like to die: Fire in the Blood (Irene Nemirovsky) (no way – this sounds far too painful!)

My soul’s present condition: Star Gazing (Linda Gillard)

Note: this is not a personal look at my life – it’s just book titles!

  1. You wouldn’t really want to be up on Wuthering Heights, I promise you. A friend and I once drove over there at night on October 31st and in the driving mirror you could see the fires from the local covens. You wouldn’t have got me back up there for anything!


  2. Oh, I loved reading this post–v. funny. I may have to give it a go.

    My favorite? – Describe where you currently live: We Have Always Lived in the Castle 🙂


  3. I just tried this tonight (to be posted in the future) and I had a hard time with some of them too. It’s a fun exercise though 🙂
