I was tagged by Kami at Kami's Library Thoughts.
Eclipse the Moon by Jessie Mihalik.
2. Did you like it?
I loved it! It's space opera at its best with engaging characters, lots of action and a fun and steamy romance.
3. Who is your favorite author?
This is tricky because there are SO many authors that I love. If I had to pick just one....Jane Austen? Or maybe Katie Ruggle. Or Barbara Michaels! Nope. I can't do it. I don't have just one favorite author. I have many.
4. What book do you wish had a sequel?
I wish there was a sequel to Patricia A. McKillip's Riddle-Master trilogy! It's one of my all-time favorite series, and I'd love to know the rest of Morgan's and Raederle's story.
5. What is your favorite movie adaptation?
I love the adaptation they did of Anne of Green Gables with Megan Follows & Colleen Dewhurst.
6. What is your favorite place to read?
I like to curl up in the corner of my couch because it's by a window and I love sitting in the sunshine, plus it's very comfy. Reading on a beach in Maui is really good, too!
7. What book do you wish was required reading in school?
A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park. Salva Dut's story is so amazing, and he's such an inspirational character. Everyone should read this book.
8. What is your quirkiest reading habit?
I don't know that I have one...maybe that I don't lend out my books to ANYONE except for a few family members who I know will take good care of my books, and who will return them.
9. What do you use as a bookmark?
Anything I can find...movie ticket stub, receipts, playing cards, scrap of paper.
10. Besides reading, what other hobbies do you have?
Writing. Birdwatching. And I just started taking some jewelry-making classes which have been a lot of fun.
If you want to play along, consider yourself tagged! Here are my ten questions for you:
1. Who taught you to read?
2. What's your favorite childhood book?
3. If you could switch places with any fictional character, who would you choose?
4. If you could meet a favorite author, alive or dead, who would it be?
5. What are you reading right now?
6. What's your go-to genre?
7. What premises or plots do you find irresistible?
8. What's your least favorite trope?
9. What's the last book you DNFed?
10. Are you addicted to Wordle? (Or to any online game?)
Love it. RegineReplyDelete
:D Thanks, Regine.Delete
Thanks for playing! This was fun! I love your answers. The Anne of Green Gables with Megan Follows is a favorite of mine as well. I admire people who birdwatch. It is something I've wanted to do, but I don't know how. I have a bird feeder, but every time I look, the birds fly away. Eclipse the Moon sounds fun! I will have to check it out.ReplyDelete
For birdwatching, start off small by getting a book just about the birds that live (or visit) your state.Then get some binoculars. You'll start recognizing the different birds soon enough. And thanks for tagging me. This post was a lot of fun to do. :DDelete
Not possible to pick one favourite author is it? Too many great ones, plus it changes from week to week! LOL. I might do this later this week, need to think of some good questions first.ReplyDelete
It does change from week to week...and from book to book! I think if you only have one favorite author, you're not reading enough. ;DDelete
Fun! I liked the Mihalik book I read too. Abd I remember Riddle Master fondly!ReplyDelete
I love that series so much! Morgan of Hed is one of my all-time favorite characters.Delete
Naming just one favorite author would be a challenge for me as well.ReplyDelete
Right? There are so many wonderful authors out there whose books I love! I can't pick just one.Delete
I think Alison does a lot of birdwatching, too. Such an interesting habit to pick up.ReplyDelete
It's a lot of fun and kind of addictive. Plus, it's mostly free. :DDelete
I loved learning about your hobbies! I used to be addicted to Wordle, but then life got crazy and now I rarely do it!ReplyDelete
You're probably better off without it. It sucks up more of my time than it should. ;DDelete
Lark, I understand, LOL!Delete
I don't really participate in these "tags" but I enjoyed your answers.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Dorothy! I don't do them very often, but sometimes it's nice to mix my posts up and do something a little different. (Usually when I'm feeling lazy about writing a review. ;D )Delete
I could never choose a favorite author either! Too many great ones out there.ReplyDelete
Way too many!Delete
Hi Lark, I am not sure why but when I was young I never got around to reading the famous children's books: Anne of Green Gables, Little Women, Nancy Drew etc. I wish I had but I am making up for it now!ReplyDelete
I loved Nancy Drew mysteries, liked Little Women, and never made it through Anne of Green Gables. (But I do love the movie version of that one.)Delete
I love the corner of your couch in the sunshine -- what a perfect place to read!ReplyDelete
It's very nice...especially in the winter time when all I want to do is hibernate and read.Delete
That was fun and I enjoyed reading all your answers, Lark! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Melody. :DDelete
This is such a fun tag! I have a hard time picking a favorite author too. Wordle is a lot of fun! Have you tried Quordle? Once I start playing it, I have a hard time stopping. :DReplyDelete
I have not tried Quordle... yet! :DDelete
#5 - That Anne of Green Gables adaption is so good. It's one my favorite book to film adaptations. I couldn't say the same for the sequels though.ReplyDelete
#8 - That's me too. Is it crazy to want to keep your books in good condition? Some people are very good at making a new book very used.
Have a lovely day.
The Anne of Green Gables sequels are not as good. And I'm glad I'm not the only one who is careful with her books. I lent a friend a book once and she lost it...it nearly ruined our friendship, mostly because she couldn't understand why I was upset.Delete
I love your post!! Yes, reading on the beach in Maui would be perfect... But beach reading anywhere is divine!ReplyDelete
I so agree! :DDelete
Fun tag! I don't like lending my books out either. I have been known to buy books for people so I don't have to lend them mine.ReplyDelete
lol. That's great.Delete
I'm not a beach-reader--the books never come back the same--suntan lotion and sand. And the light's too glare-y! ;-)ReplyDelete
The light is glare-y at the beach! But I do love sitting in a chair, watching the waves, and pretending to read. :DDelete
I've done a few tags like this but I find there are always new interesting questions. Thanks for the information about yourself, that's always the most fun about it.ReplyDelete
Sometimes I like to take a break from reviewing books and write a post about something else. :DDelete
Me, too. And I definitely like to read them when others post it.Delete
You know I probably like Out of Africa as my movie adaptation but Anne of Green Gables is a good choice too!ReplyDelete
I need to watch Out of Africa again; it's been so long since I've seen that movie!Delete
I hear you about not lending books! My family makes fun of me for being overly protective of my books, but I don't care. I have one friend who I'll lend books to, because I know she'll return them in pristine condition (and the one time her kitty gnawed on one of my books, she replaced it without being asked).ReplyDelete
That's a good friend!Delete
It is definitely so hard to pick a favorite author! Barbara Michaels and Agatha Christie are up there but there are so many! I love that version of Anne. It's so wonderful. I don't lend books either. I might give someone a book if I know I'll never read it again but I'm not lending a book that I want to see again! Great tag! I'm saving the questions to do on my next empty space day.ReplyDelete
I look forward to reading your answers. :DDelete
Ooh, I rarely loan out my books either. 😆 Glad I'm not alone in my possessiveness. Ha!ReplyDelete
You are definitely not alone! I loaned out two books to two different people once and never got them back, and learned my lesson. Now, only my sisters and mom can borrow my books because I know they won't lose them.Delete
I have such a hard time lending books too! This was so fun to read and I'd love to hear more about your jewelry making! I'll try to give this tag a go too!ReplyDelete
:D I hope you get a chance, too. I'd love to read your bookish answers.Delete
Great list, Lark. I love that AOGG adaptation as well. Nothing else works for me. Anne with an E was good, but still not my favorite. I don't lend my books out either. Have lost too many good ones that way.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing and for visiting my blog last week.
Megan Follows IS Anne of Green Gables in my opinion. :DDelete
