My Life in Books 2011

31st August 2011

Last year Elyse at PCN (Pop Culture Nerd) hosted a great meme, sort of a Mad Libs with book titles. I had such a great time with last year’s post, so when I saw her post, I decided it was perfect timing! You simply fill in the blanks with book titles.

One time at band/summer camp, I Let the Great World Spin (McCann).

Wait. I was supposed to jump off the rope into the creek? I missed that part.

Weekends at my house are Tales of the City (Maupin).

Which is also why guests need A Lesson in Secrets (Winspear).

My neighbor is The Hangman’s Daughter (Potzsch).

That’s why I don’t need an alarm system.

My boss is Among the Mad (Winspear).

No, really.

My ex was The Devil in the White City (Larson).

Need I say more?

My superhero secret identity is Silver Sparrow (Jones).

Wouldn’t that be a cool costume?

You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry because One Good Turn…  (Atkinson).

…deserves another. ahahaha! AHAHAHA! (yes, that’s my evil laugh)

I’d win a gold medal in Love, Lies & Liquor (Beaton).

Only on days that end in y.

I’d pay good money for Casino Royale (Fleming).

Or its main hunk, James Bond, or the main hunk who plays Bond in the film….none other than Daniel Craig himself. *sigh*

If I were president, I would Live and Let Die (Fleming).

I’m a hard ass, what can I say?

When I don’t have good books, I ask When Will There be Good News? (Atkinson).

But thank goodness, as you guys can tell, I normally have good books.

Loud talkers at the movies should be Long Gone (Burke).

The only question is how…You mean I never told you about The Funny Man (Warner) and An Accident in August (Cosse) he once had? Oops. Never mind.

Join in – either in comments or a separate post. I’d love to see what your book titles say about you.

  • It’s wonderful to see the great non-fiction by Erik Larson as your answer for the ‘My ex was…’ question. Fine post for a fun meme.

    • Thanks! I am not a huge fan of memes, but I love this one. Such fun.

  • This IS a great meme. Thanks for sharing!

  • Ok. This snapped me out of my lull. Here’s my post:

    • Yea! Heading to read it.

  • Haha! I so enjoy reading everyone’s answers. Love how yours has commentary. My favorites are about the ex, boss, and your secret identity!

    • I know! They worked perfectly. So love this meme.

    My Life in Books 2011

    One time at band/summer camp, all I can say is it involved The Angel Experiment (James Patterson) and a Kiss (Ted Dekker)

    My boss is full of… Wisdom (Amanda Hocking)
    This is not sarcasm. Really. Okay, this may have been true of one of my bosses, but I love my boss now!

    My ex was the Boyfriend from Hell (E. Van Lowe)
    This is actually true. This one is not a joke or sarcastic comment. Now if only I can find my Earth Angel (E. Van Lowe’s sequel to above title)

    My superhero secret identity is made of Wizard and Glass (Stephen King)
    And is the best costume ever. Very sturdy and still haven’t figured out all the tricks it can do yet.

    You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry because Bloody Little Secrets… (Karly Kirkpatrick)

    …will be all that’s left of you…mwaHaha!

    When I don’t have good books, I ask where the Needful Things are (King)
    I need them to live.

    Loud talkers at the movies should be Hush, Hush (ed) (Becca Fitzpatrick)
    (and this will be done with a Showdown (Dekker) on The Road (Cormac McCarthy) and then you will be Gone (Michael Grant) Sorry if that scares you, I love you, dear reader, too much Stephen King on the brain? No, I take full credit. *sweet smile*)

    • Awesome! I especially loved your ex answer. And what must it be like to like and respect your boss? 😉 Only half joking there.

      And Bloody Little Secrets is GREAT for that one. Too funny. I love seeing everyone’s dastardly nature come out with these. I’ll definitely look at the full version.

    This looks like fun, Jenn. I like your very clever answers. 🙂

    • Thanks! It is fun.

  • Yvette

    Okay, I couldn’t resist. I did my own list and will post it on my blog shortly. 🙂

    • Yea! Can’t wait to see it.
