2. Kindergarten: NAP TIME! What’s a book that put you to sleep?

man-gone-down

 

I’ve tried to read this one for YEARS. I don’t know why, but for some reason I find it incredibly boring and it puts me to ZzzzZzzZzzzzz…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Elementary School: Recess and story time and jungle gyms–SO MUCH FUN. What’s a book or series that’s just plain fun?

momswhodrinkandswear

 

I laughed almost constantly reading Moms Who Drink and Swear by Nicole Knepper. Even if you’re not a mom, I think you’d still find this one lots of fun.

 

 

 

4. Middle School: The awkward and embarrassing years… What’s a book or series that you’re embarrassed you used to be a huge fan of?

Hmmmm…that’s a good question. I don’t think I feel embarrassed about any books I’ve read…simply because I don’t embarrass very easily haha! I used to read romance novels as a teen, which are super cheesy, but I don’t feel embarrassed about it.

5. High School: The popular girl, the jock, the nerd, the loner–these are all stereotypes, but people are more than they appear!! Who is a character that you initially wrote off as a trope/stereotype but grew to love?

This Savage Song

Kate Harker in This Savage Song written by Victoria Schwab. At the beginning of this story Kate seems like she is nothing but a wanna-be-trouble-maker, but we then learn she is the daughter of the mayor – which then made me think she was simply a spoiled brat who doesn’t realize how good she’s got it. I was incredibly wrong. Kate is a strong young woman, who isn’t afraid to say what she means, and means what she says. She’s not the damsel in distress who needs saving – she does the saving. I absolutely fell in love with her character and can’t WAIT to read the next book in this series.

 

 

6. College: Out on your own, forging your own path, making your own schedule. What is your favorite coming-of-age story?

Little-Women-bookcover

 

Little Women by Louisa M. Alcott has been my favourite coming of age story since I was about ten years old. This is one of the few books I’ve actually re-read, and would love to re-read again soon. I’ve also watched the movie about fifty times. ♥♥♥

 

 

 

 

 

7. Adulthood: Taxes and retirement accounts and car payments OH MY. All depressing, but you still have a sense that the world is your oyster. What is a book that’s pretty depressing, but also has a sense of optimism to it?

13RWanniversary

 

This might seem like a strange choice. Thirteen Reasons Why is the story of Hannah, who left recorded tapes explaining the thirteen reasons why she committed suicide. Painfully depressing read that made me cry numerous times – however, there is an optimistic side there…where it’s teaching us the important lesson that everything affects everything. We can take the time to realize the power of our words and actions. It also teaches us to love our friends and family better and never take anyone for granted.
