Book Mail and Literary Junkies

1. The Phoenix Girls by Brian Knight // 2. How to Find God's Will by Josh Wood // 3. Darkin: A Journey East by Joseph A Turkot
I love Goodreads a tad to much. Every Friday I am on there, entering my reviews and entering giveaways.  Of course my entries don't go completely to waste. I have received several books from the giveaways. I thought that I would should you what I got in the mail last week.

By now I am sure you have heard me talk about Literary Junkies Book Club. They are seriously the best book club I have been in. I am so proud to be apart of it. Anyways, they once a month they do a monthly link up with questions that are book related. I haven't participated yet because I was doing my Introduction Series and I have schedule my post ahead of time. This month has been a pretty free month so I am joining in this go around. Though I do have plans for continuing posting about my life soon. 

1. What are you currently reading? Tell us about it.
I post what I am currently reading to the right----> 
But for those to lazy to look the the right I posted it to the left. I am currently reading "Silver Linings Playbook". This book is for the Literary Junkies twitter party on Tuesday. If you read this, you should join us. Anyways, so far, it's strange. Not good, not bad  but I am only on page 83. It will be sometime before I know how I feel about this book.

2. Who is your favorite book character and why?
I think that my favorite book character is Mia from my favorite book "Music of the Dolphins". She grows and learns throughout the book. Yet at the end, she still remains herself. She didn't let go of who she was. One day I will do a whole post dedicated to the book and how it has affected and changed me. 

3. What would the title of your memoir be?
I always thought about writing a book about my life. And in way, that's what a blog does. Also, with the help of this blog, I am slowly writing my story. One night about a month ago, while laying in bed the name of my book came to me "Even if She Fell in Love".  Of course you would have to read my book (or follow my blog) to find out how that fits me. ;]

4.You be the director! Cast your favorite book character for the movie version that has not been made yet.
Oh man is that hard. I guess I will do my favorite book "Music of The Dolphins" because if Kim links up she will doing "Redeeming Love"  (me and her have that in common 'like big time gotta happen') and my third favorite book is already becoming a movie, "Mockingjay".  
I choose Christina Ricci to play as the main character Mila in the book. I think that she has the perfect look and personality to be able to play her. 

Holes (Holes, #1)
5. What book or series do you remember reading as an Elementary/Middle School age?
Obviously,  "Music of The Dolphins" was one I read in Elementary school but since I talk about the book to much I thought I would share another book I remember reading in third grade. I remember my teacher  reading out loud to us.  I remember her taking us outside to read to us one day. It was such a nice day. I still remember her reading to us "Holes".  It's a great book and movie! If you haven't read or seen it yet do so. I also hear there is a second one... I am going to have see about that.

OMG I think Music of the Dolphins is a book that I've totally forgot about but TOTALLY LOVE when I was a kid? I just joined Goodreads but don't know anything about it. I'm curious how Mockingjay is going to be as a movie because I thnk it is going to be have to be halved and it had so many small things going on

So the Goodreads giveaways and whatnot are on Fridays only? Or that's just when you do it?

I hope you enjoy the free books you got. I am currently reading Holes, I'm almost finished. I agree that it's an awesome book and movie.
