So last year around this time I jumped in on a fun, bookish survey from Pop Culture Nerd – you can check that out here if you like – and this year I’ve decided to do my own bookish review of the year that has (almost) been! Basically, I’ve come up with some sentences and I aim to finish them with the titles of books that I have read this year. I can’t guarantee that I won’t cheat though and use some titles from last year. Or titles on my TBR pile. I may even include more than one title per sentence. Hold onto your false teeth, thrillseekers, here we go!
So far, I would describe this year as being: [a] Blur
I’m tipping that the next big thing in Reality TV shows will be: Extreme Dentistry
I could have cried when: The Mirror Crack’d from Side to Side
I would love to have some respite from: Baby Penguins Everywhere!
The most unexpected thing that happened this year involved: 100 Hungry Monkeys
My non-bookish friends would say I: [have a] SuperEgo
My motto for the remainder of 2014 is going to be: Never Underestimate a Hermit Crab
The thing I am most looking forward to is: [an] 8-Bit Christmas
One of my favourite dreams features: Duck, Death and the Tulip
If you looked under my couch you would see: [a] Slimy Underbelly
If I could no longer keep blogging, I would probably pursue a career in: The Indifference League
Something most people don’t know about me is: I Need a New Butt
I’ve linked the Goodreads info to each of the pictures if you have suddenly developed an interest in any of these handy titles. Feel free to jump aboard with your own Bookish Survey – I’d love to hear what other people’s literary year has been like!
Until next time,
