Books of the year, almost

A meme borrowed from Catherine Pope:

Using only books you have read this year (2011), answer these questions. Try not to repeat a book title.

Describe yourself: The Female of the Species (Lionel Shriver)

How do you feel: There But For The (Ali Smith)

Describe where you currently live: Great House (Nicole Krauss)

Your best friend is: The Help (Kathryn Stockett)

If you could go anywhere, where would you go: Far From the Madding Crowd (Thomas Hardy), perhaps to Tibet, Tibet (Patrick French)

Your favourite form of transportation: Pegasus (Robin McKinley)

You and your friends are: Hearts and Minds (Amanda Craig)

What’s the weather like: Love in a Cold Climate (Nancy Mitford)

You fear: Dealing With Dragons (Patricia C. Wrede)

What is the best advice you have to give: Solace (Belinda McKeon)

Thought for the day: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (Philip K. Dick)

How I would like to die: Happily Ever After (Harriet Evans)

My soul’s present condition: The Still Point (Amy Sackville)

This worked a bit better than I thought it would - proper post on classic teenage fiction coming up soon, when I can work out how to extract it from Blogger!


  1. What a brilliant meme. May have to steal it myself. Some of the answers here are just perfect.

  2. Thank you! I'll be interested in seeing what you come up with - funny how well it seems to work...
