My Life According to Books 2012

Submitted by on September 23, 2012 – 11:23 pm 25 Comments

It’s that time again, when I share a little bit about my life, using sentences that have to be completed with titles of books read in the current year. This is based on a post I saw 3 years go at Reactions to Reading.

I always make up the sentences before I peruse my list of books to avoid tailoring them to my titles. My favorite genre is crime fiction so the results are usually a little nutty, but that’s part of the fun.

So, with books read in 2012 (they could have been published any year), here’s my life report this year:

Every Monday I look/feel like: The Nightmare (Lars Kepler)

Last time I went to a doctor/therapist was because: False Negative (Joseph Koenig)

Last meal I ate was: Let’s Pretend This Never Happened (Jenny Lawson)

My savings account is: Bleed for Me (Michael Robotham)

When a creepy guy/girl asks for my number, I: Never Tell (Alafair Burke)

Ignorant politicians make me: Dead Scared (S. J. Bolton)

Some people need to spend more time: (in) The Facility (Simon Lelic)

My memoir could be titled: Lunatics (Dave Barry and Alan Zweibel)

If I could have, I would’ve told my teenage self: What Comes Next (John Katzenbach)

In five years I hope I am: Leader of the Pack (David Rosenfelt)

Your turn! Either post your sentences in the comments, or link to them on your own blog and I’ll check them out. Have fun!
