memes, part one

Part one of the memes from Ms. C: 

One book that changed your life:

Atonement by Ewan McEwan. It wasn’t a really drastic change but it just reinforced in me the power of your imagination and how it can impact the people around you, directly and indirectly, positively or negatively, at any given time.

One book you have read more than once:

Memoirs of a Geisha— I read it thrice. I loved it way more than the movie. I would like to see a spin-off of Mameha’s life.

One book you would want on a desert island:

The Ultimate Survival Guide in a Desert Island. Hahahaha!!!!

One book that made you laugh:

Any book in Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series

One book that made you cry:

The True and Outstanding Adventures of the Hunt Sisters by Elisabeth Robinson

One book you wish had been written:

*Hmm, I can’t think of anything right now.*

One book you wish had never been written:

Not one but all those books that went out after The Da Vince Code— there are bazillions of them, talking about the real grail, the secret behind the grail, the conspiracies behind the code, and what have you— one word: ENOUGH.

One book you are currently reading:

(I don’t read one book at a time, hihihi!!!) Currently, I’m into A World Without Walls by Mike Moore, The Secret History by Donna Tartt and Survival of the Fittest by Jonathan Kellerman.

One book you have been meaning to read:

The Purpose-Driven Life. With all the buzz it has generated, and to think that my Mom has long coaxed me to read her copy, I hope to start it soon.
