Here's an irrelevant picture of my brother and me in Duluth, MN. Clearly, I was not all about the hat I was wearing... (Also, have you seen a more early-90s picture?! This is why I'm not into the resurfacing of all the 90s fashion, haha!!)
My blogging friend Anne is co-hosting a linkup about books, and since I've started reading again, I wanted to make sure I linked up as well.
Best book you've read this year: I think it's a tie between Dark Places, by Gillian Flynn, and Nineteen Minutes, by Jodi Picoult. Both books were incredibly gripping, and I loved the character development in each story.
Last book you finished: It only took about two months, but I finally finished The Lost World, by Michael Crichton. I devoured Jurassic Park in a matter of days, but The Lost World wasn't quite as good. And yes, I'm a nerd and I really like dinosaurs.
Up next on your reading pile: Last week I started reading On the Road, by Jack Kerouac. I have only gotten about 30 pages in so far, but it's interesting. I am eager to sit down this weekend and read for a few hours straight!
Favorite book as a kid (around age 9-10): Oh gosh, this is such a hard question. I read constantly as a kiddo. I adored the Babysitter's Club: Little Sister series, by Ann M. Martin, but I also loved reading Dear America books, The Giver, by Lois Lowry, and anything by Beverly Cleary or Judy Blume.
Book you'd want with you if stuck on a deserted island: I wish I could say the whole Harry Potter series, but I'll go with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, by J.K. Rowling, because, really, it's where the magic began (pun fully intended). I read it first when I was about 10 years old and wasn't really "a thing" in the United States yet, and it literally changed my life. I just have so many memories of reading that book. I've already read it about 15 times, but I get warm fuzzies every single time I read it.
I'm linking up with Anne today!
