Sunday Social - Books

Sunday Social

What is your favorite childhood book?

My favorite book when I was a kid was Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. I loved the idea that food could just come down from the sky.

I also collected the Boxcar Children books and The Babysitters Club books. 

 What is your favorite book lately?

The last book that I read and really loved was Let's Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson (aka The Bloggess)  It is so hilarious that I was actually laughing so hard I cried several times.

I've also enjoyed the The Hunger Games series and the Parasol Protectorate series in the past year.

What is the book you wish you could live in? 

Harry Potter! I want to be a witch and go to Hogwarts! 

If you could be any character from a book, who would it be and why? 

I think I want to be Stephanie Plum from the Janet Evanovich novels. Because Stephanie is kick-ass and has two sexy men in her life. But, I'm totally a Morelli girl all the way. (And to go with the next question, I actually thought the movie of One for the Money was pretty good even though it was Katherine Heigel, who I don't like.)

What is your favorite book turned movie?

Pride and Prejudice - It's probably the only movie of a book that didn't ruin the story. Plus, I just adore the Kiera Knightly version.

Also, The Princess Bride does a great job of sticking to the book which is a great book as well as one of my favorite movies.

What is your favorite magazine?

I highly enjoy just about any magazine that I can score for free. Right now I'm really enjoying my subscriptions to Everyday Food and All You.



  1. Visiting from the link up! I love that we picked a lot of the same stuff in our posts! Great minds think alike!

  2. I could definitely use a cooking magazine. I will take any help I can get ahah.

  3. I think everyone chose to live in Harry Potter! There really is no better choice! The Hunger Games were SO good. I could not put them down.

  4. I liked the movie "Cloudy with A Chance of Meatballs" but never read it as a kid.

  5. I love the princess bride! I didnt know it was a book first I am going to have to check it out!

  6. I adored Jenny Lawson's book too! Funny, funny girl, but also great when writing about the sadder moments!

  7. I love Pride & Prejudice! Such a great movie! Visiting you from the link up :)
