My Life in Books

Last year I participated in a meme to describe my life in terms of the books I read during the year. Now Pop Culture Nerd has created a 2010 version of the meme with new sentences and I seen it on several blogs – DJ’s Krimiblog, Bernadette at Reactions to Reading and Margot at Confessions of a Mystery Novelist. So I thought I’d have a go too.  Here are my answers using only the titles of the books I’ve read so far this year.

In high school I was: Invisible (Paul Auster)

People might be surprised I’m: Black and Blue (Ian Rankin)

I will never be:  The Warrior’s Princess (Barbara Erskine)

My fantasy job is: The Gourmet (Muriel Barbery)

At the end of a long day I need: The Very Thought of You  (Rosie Alison)

I hate it when: Losing You (Nicci French)

Wish I had: King Arthur’s Bones (The Medieval Murderers)

My family reunions are: A Question of Blood (Ian Rankin)

At a party you’d find me with:Fallen Gods (Quintin Jardine)

I’ve never been to: Wolf Hall (Hilary Mantel)

A happy day includes: The Right Attitutude to Rain (Alexander Mccall Smith)

Motto I live by: Faithful Unto Death (Caroline Graham)

On my bucket list: 100 Days on Holy Island (Peter Mortimer)

In my next life, I want to be: The Man who Planted Trees (Jean Giono)

  1. I love that family reunion response too! I like this meme, I’m going to have to see if I can do it with the books I’ve read so far this year. I also like your high school answer – I concur for me also!


  2. I have overseas visitors staying at the moment and it’s barely stopped raining so your answer to the happy day question is perfect for me right now 🙂
