Armchair BEA: Day 1 Introductions

Armchair BEA

This is the first year I'm actually participating in Armchair BEA. Normally I miss it somehow. 
So, the very first topic up for discussion is introducing myself...

What is your theme song?

I'm going to cheat a little here. I don't really have a theme song, but I do have one for my husband that's his ringtone on my phone. That should count right? It's Hey Ho by the Lumineers. and the part that plays for the ring is "I belong with you, you belong with me, you're my sweetheart..." Yeah. I obviously like him. :)

What is one book everyone should read?

This is such a subjective question because everyone would pick something different and it's based so much on the reader's tastes and life experiences. Having said that, I would say David Copperfield by Charles Dickens (I need to read it again and write a proper review). I can't remember how young I was when I read it (before high school), but I connected with and was inspired by it. 

Now, if you need something a little lighter, I'd maybe say. . . gosh, how do you choose just one??? Blackmoore by Julianne Donaldson was really, really good. As was Hope Springs by Sarah M. Eden. And then there's Lizzy & Jane by Katherine Reay for Christian fiction readers. Then for YA readers... There are so many. I'll just pick Pivot Point by Kasie West.

Okay. This was a hard question. Obviously I can't stick with one book.

What is your favorite genre and why?

Another really hard question. Why are these so hard?!! I have a wide range of tastes. I would have to go with either FANTASY (normally YA, but sometimes adult) or clean ADULT ROMANCE. I think because when I really want to escape into books, that's what I turn to and I can almost always find what I'm looking for.

What book are you most looking forward to reading this summer?

There are so many!! I'd have to pick Silver in the Blood by Jessica Day George. I an co-running a read-along for it, but besides that it's in the fantasy (urban fantasy) genre in YA and is by a fabulous author. I seriously can't wait!!!

If you were stranded on a deserted island, what author would you want to bring with you? Why?

Jane Austen. She would be witty, fun, and intelligent. Plus she has a great imagination and I just would love to meet her. :)
