another book link-up thanks to Kate - love!

Don't you just adore the blogsphere?? This morning I had ABSOLUTELY nothing to write about. I thought about writing about the frigging COLD weather. It's like -40C with the wind shield factor outside or about how hard it is to walk in -40C weather since my daily goal is to walk 10,000 steps. But then I decided to link-up with Pink Hells, Pink Truck and Life with a side of coffee since their link-up as to do with BOOKS. Thanks Kate !

What are you reading right now?
I am reading La Poussière du Temps - Sur le boulevard - tome 3 by a French Canadian author named Michel David. This author always writes tretralogies (fancy word that means 4 books... I needed to look that one up!). What I LOVE about this author is that he writes stories that revolves around families during the late 1890's through 1950's and all of his stories are based in Quebec - a lot of history!!

Out of the 16 books that will be turned into a movie adaption, which one are you most looking forward to seeing this year?? See link.
Without a doubt, The Fault in our Stars. I bawled reading the book so I can just image what I am going to look like in the movie theatre.

What was the worst book you've ever read??
I love to be entertained when I read. I usually read the first 100 pages of a book... and if I need to force myself to read... I usually ditch the book. I recently couldn't finish The Last Letter from your Lover by Jojo Moyes. :(

What foods or beverages have you spilled on a book while reading?? Anything good??
I can honestly say that I have not spilled anything good on a book (maybe only a drop of coffee here and there), however, back in the 1990's my dog destroyed a copy of Mommy Deareast by Christina Crawford.  Was that a sign or what??

Do you picture characters as popular film or tv actors?? Or do you create a whole new person in your head?
Sometimes I do but not always. Like recently, I read House in the Sky by Amanda Lindhout and since it is her memoir, I was able to google pictures of her. It turns out that she is a dead ringer to Princess Kate but if you would have asked me what she looked liked.... I would have said someone like very thin and ugly!

Out of all the authors you've read books by, who's brain would you want to pick the most?
I am a huge Lisa Genova fan, therefore, I would love to find out where she comes up with her ideas!

This was fun… !!!! I will definitely be back next month for another link-up!

  1. I haven't read The Fault in our Stars yet but it is always in the back of my mind. I must read it before goes to theatre though. Pressures on now. hehe

  2. I keep hearing about The Fault in our Stars and I keep meaning to download it on my Kindle but I keep forgetting!

  3. I was so disappointed with The Last Letter from Your Lover because I loved Me Before You! Glad you linked up!!!

  4. I really liked The Last Letter From Your Lover! I pretty much love all books by Jojo Moyes.

  5. Great now I have a new book to add to my list at the library - thanks :)

  6. I really enjoyed The Last Letter From Your Lover, it did take me a while to really get into it but it was so worth sticking with, I thought.

  7. I'm keeping my vow that I'm not going to watch any of the books-to-movies until I've read the book. My favorite part of reading is coming up with the picture in my mind. Great idea for a linkup!!

  8. I love how everyone is choosing The Fault in Our Stars. I'm really excited about this.

  9. i really need to start reading again! i used to inhale hundreds of books a month but since i started watching all of these tv shows, that's what eats up my time!
