BOOK CHALLENGE

Best Book I read last year:The secret by Rhonda Byrne. This book will either change your whole mindset or you will throw it away and say “mhe, obvious stuff” and the truth is everything in that book is obvious but if you can analyze and apply it it is life changing! I waited many years  to read and when I finally read it, It’s because i found it in a box of books that were thrown out by one of my neighbors, I call it fate!

A book that You’ve read more than three times:The Thorn birds by Colleen McCullough.I really really loved this book, even read it more than three times.I am not usually a great fan of fiction reads, but this was such well told story that conjured a lot of different emotions. It wasn’t an obvious  happily ever after story. I don’t want to give anything away so buy it and promise you will read it again. Personally all i have to say is its a sweet, tragic love story that happens but never happens.

Favorite book of your favorite series: Harry potter and the goblet of Fire

A book that makes you happy: A Thousand Splendid Suns Khaleid Hosseini

A book that makes you sad: Me before you by Jojo Moyes  (why didn’t he live? why?) !

A book that makes you laugh: I can’t think of any

Most overrated book: Please don’t kill me but I think The Alchemist by Paulo Cuehlo is really so overrated! I found it boring and I took a really long time to finish it.

A book you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving: To kill a mocking bird Harper Lee

A book that reminds of you home: Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom

A book you hated:  The book thief by Markus Zusak

Your favorite writer: Jane Austen I think only because she is the only writer I have loved every book!

Favorite male character: Mr.Darcy from pride and prejudice by Jane Austen

Favorite female character: Aibileen Clark in The help by Kathryn Stockett.

Favorite quote from your favorite book: “What is in the human character that gives some individuals moral strength not to sacrifice their decency and dignity, regardless of the costs to themselves, whereas others become murderously ruthless in the hope of ensuring their own survival?” _ A lucky child by Thomas Buergenthal (not my favorite book but the quote is relevant from the holocaust period to today)

A book that disappointed you : Kite Runner , I had been told by so many people that this was a must read, so when i finally decided to read it it just couldn’t hold up to the expectation in my mind. It wasn’t bad but it didn’t meet expectation.  Which is why now i don’t believe people who swear by a book, I go in feet first!

Favorite turned into a movie: Every Harry potter book.

The first novel you remember reading: One of the Sweet valley High books, probably the one they were in Senior high school

Favorite title of book: We need new names  by Voilet Bulawayo (something cool about this title)

A book everyone hated but you liked: Not sure , I would need to know a book that a lot of people hated first which I don’t.

Your  favorite book of all time: This is hard, every book  has it’s own unique attribute that makes it great. maybe a favorite book in a specific genre but not of all time. My favorite books so far are; A thousand Splendid suns, Tuesdays with Morrie, The secret, The Thorn Birds and Three cups of tea.
