Sunday Social: Books!

 Sunday Social

1. What is your favorite childhood book?

As usual, I'll probably have multiple answers for every question.  When I was really young, I loved the Junie B. Jones series.  Later I got into the Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging books.  I guess funny books were my style back in the day.  And, as I was 10 when they started being published (that makes me feel old), Harry Potter.

2. What is your favorite book lately?

I finally read The Hobbit this summer and I loved it!  I read Lord of the Rings when I was a teenager and it's always been one of my favorite trilogies, so it was kind of a long time coming to read it.  I also really enjoyed the Hunger Games and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series.
3. What is the book you wish you could live in?

Oh, Pride and Prejudice without question.
I also wouldn't mind going to Hogwarts :)
4. If you could be any character from a book, who would it be and why?

Elizabeth Bennet.  Or Jo March.

5. What is your favorite book turned movie?

 Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings.  It's a tie.

6. What is your favorite magazine?    

I have a subscription to Food and Wine which I love.  I also love catalogs.  Like Pottery Barn and that HUGE one J C Penney used to put out (or do they still?).  And I can't lie, I can't not love flipping through a People.


  1. The husband has been trying to get me to read the hobbit for a long time! Maybe I should finally give it a try! Here from sunday social!

  2. Good morning Jen! I found you at the Sunday Social Blog Hop, I liked your blog a lot so now I'm following you ^^

  3. Hi from the link up!

    I was so happy when I saw Junie B. Jones on your list. I remembered those books after I made my post last night. I think those were the first "chapter books" that I read. I kind of want to go check some out from the library now. Would that be weird? Hahah! Happy Sunday!
