I'm going to forego my typical Sunday Blessings post, to link-up and talk about one of my favorite things...BOOKS!

Favorite Childhood Book

Oh my goodness- this is an impossible question! I was such a bookworm as a kid! I distinctly remember my Mom reading us Little Black Sambo though. The book was written about a million years ago and was totally not politically correct so my Mom changed the character names to "Big John" and "Sarah."


I also loved the Magic Attic Club series and of course, Harry Potter.


Oh, and Roald Dahl, in my opinion, is pretty much the greatest author of all time.



Favorite Book Lately

Obviously, like every other person on the planet, I loved The Hunger Games series. Other than that I haven't been reading a whole lot lately *sad face*



Book You Wish You Could Live In

I mean, who wouldn't want to go to Hogwarts? But I'd want to live in the post-Voldemort Hogwarts. I don't like war. Oh, and I would totally try to make George Weasley fall in love with me.

If you could be any character who would it be and why?

I would love to do what Liz in Eat.Pray.Love did. She got to go on such an amazing journey and experience God in such diverse and beautiful settings. So jealous.


Favorite Book Turned Movie

Despite the changes to the setting, I thought A Walk to Remember turned out to be a wonderful movie. I still love both the book and movie- although I never watch it because it makes me cry hysterically every time.


Favorite Magazines

To be honest, I rarely read magazines. But if I had to choose- Cosmopolitan or Foreign Policy. Most random combination ever...I'm such a nerd.


Have you read any great books lately?
Feel free to share your book recommendations with me- I could use some new ideas!


  1. Have you read Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers? Pretty much the BEST book EVER! Seriously...it's a must! ;)

    I also loved The Help & i just finished The Redemption Series by Karen Kingsbury - also very good!

  2. There is a restaurant on the Oregon Coast called Sambo's. It used to be called Little Black Sambo's. My husband has tells me the story of LBS every time we drive by it. Ha!

  3. Omg. I LOVE Roald Dahl. In high school, I wrote my senior English paper about the connection between his lack of a strong father-figure and how many of his characters have no father or have a very weak one. It made writing the paper almost fun. :P

  4. When I first started thinking about what world I wanted to live in, the only thing I could think of was Harry Potter. But I assumed everyone would come up with that idea, and tried to come up with something different as well. But if I did living in Harry Potter's world, would definitely want to live in the post-Voldemort times.
