Favorite Book Prompts

I just realized it has been 6 days since I last posted. My apologies. I try to not have it go so long in between posts. I’ve just been so busy trying to get everything ready for my trip.  Make sure you are following my youtube channel for some great content that will post while I am gone and my movie blog which will have a series of art book reviews while I’m gone.

But never fear this blog is going to get the most attention while I am in Spain.  I will try and update you guys as often as I can. I hope to at least daily have some photos or experiences. Make sure you are following me on all the other social media because I will have stuff to share @smilingldsgirl.

Anyway, I thought it would be fun to do one more of the 30 Days of Books prompts my friend is done over at Suey’s Books. Make sure to check out her great blog.

Favorite title:

I think I will go with the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society because it always amazes me that a book with that crazy title could get published (and it’s a really fun little book too).

A book everyone hated but you liked:

A lot of people like Sophie Kinsella and the Undomestic Goddess but when I picked it for book club it was very unpopular. I know it is a silly story but I think it is enjoyable and I thought it might give us some things to talk about with its themes of work, domestic life and womanhood. But it was not a hit.  I still love it!

Undomestic Goddess is probably my favorite Kinsella novel. I love anything that is about work, why we work, why we over-work, work vs. family etc. Especially interesting is the contrast of old vs new work.

Your favorite book of all time:

My favorites are either North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell or The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak. I also love Pride and Prejudice, Cheaper by the Dozen, Christmas Carol, and To Kill a Mockingbird.
