Literary Junkies Book Club

Yay!  It's time for this month's Literary Junkies Linkup!  I love the third Tuesday of the month for this great reason.

Literary Junkies


This month's questions:

1.  What are you currently reading? Tell us about it.

The Other Queen by Philippa Gregory.  I usually LOVE Philippa's books but this one just seems to keep wearing on and on.  But I have to finish it!  I think I remember what happens to Queen Mary of Scots but I just can't quite remember.  Isn't that where the "Bloody Mary" thing comes from?

2.  Who is your favorite book character and why?


I loved Katniss in the first book of the Hunger Games.  She was such a modest, badass in the first book!  After the first book she went kinda nutty though.  I also loved Hermione Granger in Harry Potter.  She was so smart and pretty.  I loved that the cute guy asked her to the dance and she surprised everyone by looking so pretty!


3.  What would the title of your memoir be?

For Reals.

4.  You be the director! Cast your favorite book characters for the movie version that has not yet been made.

That's a hard question!  The White Queen by Philippa Gregory.
Elizabeth Woodville -  Rachel McAdams or Olivia Wilde
King Edward - Ian Somerhaulder
Jacquetta Woodville - Catherine Zeta Jones or Kelly Rutherford
Princess Elizabeth - Ashley Benson


5.  What book or series do you remember reading as an elementary/middle school age?


Sweet Valley Twins, Babysitter's Club, Goosebumps, and Mary Higgins Clark.  Clark really helped me transition from tweenie books to regular fiction.

Our book this month was Silver Linings Playbook.  I didn't really like the movie when I saw it a few months ago but I enjoyed the book.  Check out my review!

  1. I LOVE Philippa Gregory books too! The Bolelyn Inheritance was my favorite. I also chose Katniss as my favorite book character.
    I used to read the Babysittrs Club too, though I forgot about them...and read a ton of Mary Higgins Clark books. :)

  2. I loved Babysitters Club and Mary Higgins Clark books. However, I much preferred R.L. Stine's other Series, Fear Street, over the Goosebumps.

  3. I love Hermione Granger she's a badass in her own right, and Katniss... she lost me during book 2.

  4. I really need to give The Other Boelyn Sister a 2nd chance! I've heard such good things about it but couldn't get into it a few years ago when it came out.

    Thanks for linking up!
