Birdie Bookworm tagged me in this Book Titles tag. This one is a little different from most book tags – the idea is to answer questions about yourself using only book titles. Fun right?
1. Title that’s the story of your life
My (Not So) Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella felt ideal for this one as I tend to exist in a constant state of self deprecation. I know that on the whole I live a pretty good life but nobody’s life is perfect, definitely not mine.
2. Title that describes your perfect weekend
I’m pretty sure my perfect weekend involves traveling to some slightly exotic locale near the water and of course coffee. The Cafe by the Sea by Jenny Colgan – an author who seems very tapped into my particular breed of wanderlust.
3. Title of an adventure you’d like to go on
Ha, are you sensing a theme here? The Year of Living Danishly by Helen Russell sounds pretty incredible. If my husband ever wanted to go live in a European country for a year, I’d definitely be down for that.
4. Title you want to name your child
First, let me be clear – I do not intend to have any more children, at all. That phase of my life has passed. But in the name of playing along, Anna seems like a name that would make my short list. I’m all about traditional names as evidenced by the names of my actual children. Birdie used a Stephanie Perkins book for this question also, so, twinsies.
5. Title of your ideal job
I’m not sure what my ideal job is these days but I’m guessing I’m unqualified for it. Travel writer, small town librarian, professional coffee drinker? Executive Netflix watcher?
6. Title of a place you’d like to visit
See, I told you. Jenny Colgan gets me. The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris = I want to go to there.
7. Title of your love life
This seems like kind of a dark choice in books to describe my love life. Let me be clear, I’m referring to the title only and not the plot of Only Ever Yours by Louise O’Neill (which sounds fantastic if not remotely romantic).
8. Questions you ask yourself
LOL What Happened by Hillz seemed fitting because aren’t we all wondering but honorable mention should go to:
How To Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk because the struggle is real.
9. Title of a kingdom you want to rule OR name
The Kingdom of Neverwhere – doesn’t that sound like a book you’d want to read? I grew up near a city named Ware which was obviously the pun of many jokes so this feels apropos.
10. Title you’d name your band.
Renegades by Marissa Meyer is so clearly the perfect band name. Also I can’t wait for this book to come out.
11. What is your current mood?
I stayed up too late last night and have yet to feel truly awake today. My Fair Lazy by Jen Lancaster pretty much sums up my motivation level today.
12. What is your favorite color?
Yeah I’ll be honest, I chose this one because there’s a color in the title. I’ve heard good things about Red Rising by Pierce Brown – have you read it? Or red it? lol
13. How do you feel about 2017 so far?
I think a lot of us feel like 2017 has been spent dealing with the fallout from 2016.
14. Where do you want to travel?
I’m running out of books that adequately describe my wanderlust guys. I had to dip out of my Amazon wish list for this one and also basically rip off Birdie’s answer but it is true. I want to see everything. Everything. (PS I just watched the movie Sunday night and it was soooo good)
15. What are your summer plans?
Yeah summer pretty much has ended here. My kids have already been back in school for a week and we are counting down those last days of August.
16. What are your 2017 goals?
Yeah my goals for the rest of the year consist almost entirely of volunteering at my kids’ school in various capacities. Just add in exercise and eat some green things.
I tag the people who read this entire post.
