My Life As a Book 2011

Submitted by on August 30, 2011 – 12:46 am 37 Comments

Two years ago, I participated in a fun meme based on this post I saw at Reactions to Reading, in which I finished sentences about myself using only titles of books I read in 2009. Last year, I made up my own sentences, completing them with 2010 titles. The response was so positive, I thought I’d do it again.

So, here are more autobiographical statements, using only books I read this year.

One time at band/summer camp, I: (was) Learning to Swim (Sara J. Henry)

Weekends at my house are: A Bad Day for Scandal (Sophie Littlefield)

My neighbor is: Creep (Jennifer Hillier)

My boss is: Here Comes Mr. Trouble (Brett Battles)

My ex was: Sick (Brett Battles)

My superhero secret identity is: The Cut (George Pelecanos)

You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry because: Heads You Lose (Lisa Lutz & David Hayward)

I’d win a gold medal in: A Game of Lies (Rebecca Cantrell)

I’d pay good money for: Fun & Games (Duane Swierczynski)

If I were president, I would: Damage Control (Denise Hamilton)

When I don’t have good books, I: (am) Broken (Karin Slaughter)

Loud talkers at the movies should be: Killed at the Whim of a Hat (Colin Cotterill)

Note: Since I read lots of dark crime fiction, I had many great options for that last sentence.
