1. Find a book on your shelves with a blue cover. What made you pick up the book in the first place?
I really loved this book and the cover has to be one of my favorites. The cover baited me from the moment I saw it, but the fact that it was a Labyrinth retelling is what sold me.
2. Think of a book you didn’t expect to enjoy but did. Why did you read it in the first place?
I had to read this for a college sociology class and given the content, I didn’t think I would like it. It was actually really good and I couldn’t wait to get to the end to discover what was going to happen. It’s hard to believe, but it’s a true story.
3. Stand in front of your bookshelf with your eyes closed and pick up a book at random. How did you discover this book?
Half Broke Horses
I picked this up from a book sale for .50 cents along with The Glass Castle. It sounded interesting and I plan to read it this year. I still have to read The Glass Castle too which is now a movie!
4. Pick a book that someone personally recommended to you. What did you think of it?
A Monster Calls
Wow, when I first read this, I was so emotional. It wasn’t what I expected, but I still rated it 4 stars because it was good. I went back and read it all over again a few months later and ended up giving it a higher rating because I felt that the book deserved 5 stars. I personally just had a hard time with some of the events in the book.
