Life According to Literature

I feel like this is one of those surveys that I filled out in middle school, only a slightly more literary take on it. So it’s fun, if not particularly enlightening. I found it over at Catherine Pope – Victorian Geek via Annabel Smith.

Using only books you have read this year (2012), answer these questions. Try not to repeat a book title.

Describe yourself: Hope: A Tragedy (Shalom Auslander)

How do you feel: Insatiable (Meg Cabot)

Describe where you currently live: Winter’s Bone (Daniel Woodrell)

If you could go anywhere, where would you go: The House of Velvet and Glass (Katherine Howe)

Your favourite form of transportation: Three Men in a Boat (Jerome K. Jerome)

Your best friend is: The Devil All the Time (Donald Ray Pollock)

You and your friends are: The Things We Talk About When We Talk About Love (Raymond Carver)

What’s the weather like: A Cold and Lonely Place (Sara J. Henry)

You fear: The Terror (Dan Simmons)

What is the best advice you have to give: How to Eat a Cupcake (Meg Donohue)

Thought for the day: The Importance of Being Earnest (Oscar Wilde)

How I would like to die: Delicacy (David Foenkinos)

My soul’s present condition: Edge of Dark Water (Joe R. Lansdale)

      Do it! It’s a fun way to look back at the book you’ve read and try and interpret their titles in new ways.

    I’m glad you decided to do it! I don’t like the sound of your best friend though…

    Great answers! What a fun and funny challenge. :) And your advice for the day answer is hilarious!

    I gave this a try myself (http://bookwanderer.wordpress.com/2013/01/11/2012-book-meme/) and I also used The Devil All the Time! What can I say, it’s a fantastic title!

      If there is anything I excel at, it is eating cupcakes – particularly chocolate caramel sea salt ones. So at least my advice would be accurate and satisfying!
