My Life According to Literature

lifeaccordingtoliterature

I’ve been wanting to do this exercise after seeing it on Petrona and Becky’s Book Reviews. Using only books you have read this year (2009), cleverly answer these questions. Try not to repeat a book title.

Describe Yourself: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

How do you feel: Dead to the World

Describe where you currently live: The Julius House

If you could go anywhere, where would you go: The Golden City

Your favorite form of transport: Runner

Your best friend is: Best Friends Forever

You and your friends are: The Good, the Bad, and the Undead

What’s the weather like: Killer Summer

Favorite time of day: Nights in Rodanthe

If your life was a: 7th Heaven

What is life to you: Grave Surprise

Your fear: Judgment in Death

What is the best advice you have to give: Love the One You’re With

Thought for the Day: Are Men Necessary?

How I would like to die: Dead Over Heels

My soul’s present condition: Every Which Way But Dead

I read a lot of J D Robb and Charlaine Harris books this year which all have “Dead” or “Death” in the title. I think that made my answers a little dark! That was fun though – it’s always interesting to revisit all the books you’ve read in a year.
