A little late fill in the blank friday post

Thank you Lauren for choosing books! I couldn't miss this for my life! My semester is almost done and I feel like I have been struck with bad luck- also my grandma's sudanese friend read my turkish coffee cup yesterday and I swear it was the freakiest thing that has ever happened to me. Oh the weird ways of our universe!

1. My favorite book growing up was the "Anne of Green Gables" series and "fearless"!!

2. The funniest book I've ever read was "high fidelity" by Nick Hornby
3. The one book that has truly changed my life is as corny as it may sound; "the seven habits of highly effective teens" I read right after my grandfather passed away (at 15)

4. If you're looking for a real "tear jerker" you should probably read "The Timetraveller's Wife"

5. If I could meet any author living or dead I would want to meet; goes without saying: Milan Kundera!! And Ahdaf Souief.

6. The next book on my "to read" list is one of the 40 unread books I have on my shelf!

7. If I was snowed into remote cabin in the woods and could only choose three books to bring with me :"the unbearable lightness of being", "life is elsewhere" and "the map of love"

LOVE The Time Traveller's Wife! Anne of Green Gables is my mum's favourite book!

I love the Anne of Green Gables series. I got a little bored with it after book 5 or so--when the focus shifted from Anne to her children. I never managed the last book, though--the WWI theme seemed a little sad to me.

Oh the Time Traveller's Wife is such a great book. One of my all-time favourites :)

I haven't read any of these.
I don't have much to do this summer, so I'll probably read some.
Thanks for sharing.

LOVE!
