My Life According to Books 2013

Submitted by on October 14, 2013 – 8:55 pm 22 Comments

For the past few years, I’ve been making up sentences for a fun meme in which you tell others about yourself using only titles of books you’ve read during the current calendar year. I first saw the idea in 2009 at Reactions to Reading, and have been providing my own sentences every year since.

As usual, I come up with the sentence starters before perusing my list of eligible titles so that I don’t tailor the sentences to the titles. If you’d like to play along, either post your answers in the comments or leave a link to the answers on your blog.

Here’s how my life is going this year.

the never listMy to-do list looks like: The Never List (Koethi Zan)

If a peeping Tom peeked into my bedroom, he’d: Never Go Back (Lee Child)

If Martians meet me, they’d think: The Curiosity (Stephan Kiernan)

My doctor is always telling me: Let’s Explore Diabetes (David Sedaris)

The weirdest thing that happened this past week: The Woman Before Me [at the supermarket] (Ruth Dugdall)

I often daydream about: [being] Unleashed (David Rosenfelt)

The government shutdown makes me: The Enraged (Brett Battles)

a hundted summersIf I win the lottery, I’d: [have] A Hundred Summers (Beatriz Williams)

My superpower is: [always having] The Last Word (Lisa Lutz)

I knew I was a book lover when: Six Years [old] (Harlan Coben)

And because my five-year blogoversary was earlier this month…

My blogging experience has been: Not Dead Yet (Peter James)
