It’s time to make your bed, but you’re going to have some friends over later and want to pick the perfect book to place on your nightstand for them all to see that you’re “reading”. Which book do you choose?
I don’t know honestly. I don’t really care about whether my friends know what I’m reading. But I guess, when at its most tidy, my nightstand usually holds my Bible and whatever book I’m reading at the time.
Oh no! The house needs dusting, but you just can’t put that book you’re reading down! What book would you buy on audio just so you could continue the story while cleaning?
I don’t even need to think about this because I’ve already actually done it with either The Fifth Season or The Obelisk Gate by N. K. Jemisin. Don’t remember which one exactly. But basically I would have done it with any of the books in the series. Are you surprised? Is there any post I don’t mention this series?
Darn it! The ceiling is leaking! Turns out Mass-Market Paperbacks are the best things to soak water up! Which popular book do you use to soak up the water?
I’m not sure if this question is asking me for a book I own in mass market paperback format or one I wouldn’t mind using to soak up water with. If the former, then I’d just used a rag because the only books I own in mass market paperback format are my old Lord of the Rings and Hobbit books and there’s no way in hell I’m using those as mops. If the former, then I have a nice collection. Maybe my Red Queen books. Or Caraval. The Sin Eater’s Daughter.
Bathrooms need a good scrubbing, and your 2007 Cosmos are a little outdated and need replacing. What book do you place in the bathroom for some light reading for when people need to take care of business?
Either a poetry book, such as Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur. Or What If: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions by Randall Munroe. Because both can be read in short bursts and I don’t want to encourage anyone to spend too much time in the bathroom.
Family is coming over, but you have no idea what to make for dinner! You read somewhere that tearing up the last chapter of a book whose ending you hated and sprinkling it in a casserole dish makes for the perfect meal! Which book do you choose?
Gotta love some hate casserole. I can’t think of any book where I specifically hated the ending. The only book I can think of where I hated a specific part of it but generally enjoyed the book, is A Court of Wings and Ruin. Although that part was not the ending. If you want to know which part and why, you can read my discussion on it, but beware of spoilers.
Organization is key, right? When it comes time to organize your bookshelf, you realize you have enough room (and money) to get three new books! Which books do you buy?
Hmm… hard to choose. But since I have to, the books on my wishlist I currently want the most are
- Every Heart a Doorway by Seannen McGuire
- The Shadowed Sun by N. K. Jemisin
- Alloy of Lay by Brandon Sanderson
- Saga Vol. 4 (I get 4 because both Saga and Every Heart a Doorway are very short, so they’ll fit on my shelves 😀 )
Finally, some peace and quiet! But, before you can relax, you realize you forgot to send your Aunt a thank you gift for the lovely “ADULT LIFE FOR DUMMIES” book she gave you for Christmas (maybe she’s trying to tell you something?). What book do you send to her to show her how much (this is sarcasm) you appreciate her gift?
Well obviously I’d choose my book for the title. I’m not sure if I’d go for something sweet and to the point such as:
Or go for something more subtle like:
I guess it would depend if she sent me anything else beside the offending book.
