1. Total number of books I've owned:
Thousands. I am not joking. Literally, thousands. I probably have a couple hundred stockpiled in my room right now.

2. The last book I bought:
The last two books I received were (FREE!) ARCs by mail.

The Winter Palace, which is historical fiction about Catherine the Great and

Heat, which is nonfiction and about the world's hottest places and things.

Needless to say, I have high expectations for both.

3. The last book I read:
Brain on Fire, a really interesting memoir about a woman with a newly discovered and very rare autoimmune disease.

4. Five books that mean a lot to me:

...1. Jane Eyre. Because it really spoke to me, as an extremely lonely adolescent with a prolonged awkward phase.

...2. Ready Player One. IT'S ABOUT VIDEO GAMES AND VIDEO GAMES AND ALSO VIDEO GAMES. OMG MY CHILDHOOD. MY CHILDHOOD. IT IS BEING CHERISHED AND PRIZED IN AN 8BIT CASE OF LOVE AND IDOLATRY.

...3. Fire and Hemlock. I've had the same copy since middle school and reread it every few years or so. It's just as good each time.

...4. White Oleander. One of the first 'grown up' books I read. I read this in middle school and loved it. My mom bought it for me new, in hardcover, and I have the same copy to this day.

...5. Ella Enchanted. Every time I feel myself giving up on happy endings, I read this book. It renews my faith in the triumph of the human spirit.

5. Tag five victims people and have them fill this out...

Well? Anybody volunteer as tribute?

Carey Do you accept random and unsolicited requests for friendship? Because this is one of those things. Also, are you a proponent of the website Tumblr? Because you seem to be an apt candidate.


Nenia *The Flagrant Liberal* Campbell I do! Please feel free to add me as a friend. ;)

And no, I don't use tumblr. It's got such a confusing interface. I love all the reaction gifs on there, though!

Carey Done. :)

Oh well, that's true. Anyway, I used to follow you on fictionpress so I'm really happy to see you here!


message 4: by Stacie (new)

Stacie Fire and Hemlock sounds really interesting! Thanks for the recommendation!


Nenia *The Flagrant Liberal* Campbell It is SO GOOD. It's a retelling of the English ballad, Tam Lin, and so well done. Oh my gosh, I love that book to bits.
