A Friday Five!

Since the "official" Friday Five ended a while back, I've missed it. So, I thought I'd write one of my own to share this week. Technically, it's not Friday here yet for another 41 minutes. But I'm gonna post it anyway, so those of you in more eastern timezones can start having fun with it, if you like.

Today . . . Books

1. What is the first book you actually *remember* reading?

2. What was the last book you finished reading?

3. What is your favourite book of all time (Yes, I know it might be hard to choose just one, but try ::grin::)

4. What was the worst book you ever read?

5. What is the next book you want/intend to read?




1. What is the first book you actually *remember* reading?

The Velveteen Rabbit. I doubt this was the first book I actually read, but I have lots of good memories of it, and I know I read it lots and lots of times. And I can't think of any other book that I'm likely to have read at a younger age. (I think Dahl came later for me).


2. What was the last book you finished reading?

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold.


3. What is your favourite book of all time (Yes, I know it might be hard to choose, but try ::grin::)

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the first time I read it. ::GRRR at having to pick one, even though I wrote the question::


4. What was the worst book you ever read?

I rarely actually *finish* a book that I think is crap. Probably the worst one I've actually finished . . . erm . . . Portrait of a Killer - Jack the Ripper, Case Closed by Patricia Cornwell. Well, researched, but poorly written. Annoyingly so.


5. What is the next book you want/intend to read?

The Reptile Room by Lemony Snicket, and then The Wide Window (also by LS), because TWW is due back at the library on Monday.

ETA: Reading loupnoir's answers to the meme reminded me of one of my all-time hated books: The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemmingway. I had to read it for school and I DETESTED it. I've enjoyed hating that book for years and years. I can't believe I forgot to mention it last night. ::grin::
