Reading Challenges: Did you sign up for any this year? How has your progression been?
I signed up for my first challenge this year! Amanda hosted the awesome Bout of Books read-a-thon right before school started up for me, so it was a great week for me to squeeze in a last bit of reading before my life became hectic. My progression was less than stellar, but I did what I could. I plan to participate in more read-a-thons in the near future.

Book Disappointments: Have you ever come across a book you were so stoked to read, but it failed miserably in your eyes?

 TOUCH series by Laurie Stolarz.
The Half-Life of Planets by Brendan Halpin and Emily Franklin.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins.
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta.
Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John.
Jessica Darling series by Megan McCafferty. (Although this would possibly ruin my image of Marcus Flutie forever.)
Secret Society Girl series by Diana Peterfreund.
…. And many, many more.

Making a Difference: Which book(s) would you put in the hands of today’s teenagers in hopes of making a difference in their lives?
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson.
I really think that would be my number one choice. I’m not sure anything could top that. It may not be “classic” literature, but it’s powerful nonetheless. It’s not just a teen read. It’s so much more than that. To play off of the title, let the book speak for itself. It’s got a strong message, and gets it across in the most relatable way.
This is a must-read.?

Book Associations: Which genre, authors, or particular books do you think people associate with your reading style?
Contemporary, contemporary and more contemporary. I’m the Contemporary Lit Queen. Usually people associate Sarah Dessen as my favorite author, and continually recommend her books (but I’ve already read all of them, of course). I can’t think of any other particular/specific books that people associate with my reading style, though.

The Reviews We Don’t Write: Have you ever read a book and not wanted to review it? Are some books too personal that we want to keep our thoughts our own?
Naturally I think, Of course not. I review every book I read. But that’s not true. I don’t. Firstly, it’s impossible. Secondly, sometimes I actually don’t want to. Sometimes it’s because the books most definitely are too personal, that if I went to review them, my review wouldn’t make much sense or accuractely describe the book to unbiased readers. Sometimes it’s because the books leave no impression upon me – good or bad, if I have nothing to say about it – at all – then I feel that I shouldn’t bother reviewing it. Sometimes it’s because I just want to read for the fun of it. Don’t get me wrong – it’s always fun (both the reading and reviewing.). But there’s also this satisfaction with finishing a book and immediately moving on to the next, without a care in the world about what, exactly, I thought of it; it allows me to just feel whatever emotion the book evokes.
In short, yes, there are times that I read books and don’t want to review them. And yes, I do believe that some books are too personal and I’d prefer to keep my thoughts to myself.

*Very sorry for my blogging absence/laziness this past week! I’ve been in a reading slump, which caused a blog slump. The good news is I discovered 290483545 Starbucks in NYC. (AKA paradise.)

Character Envy: If you could be one character from a book, who would you choose & why?

My first, immediate thought was Peter Pan. He gets to be a kid forever.
