Life According to Literature

I saw this at Book Psmith and BooksPlease this morning. It looks like fun, so I though I'd play along.
Using only books you have read this year (2009), answer these questions. Try not to repeat a book title. It’s a lot harder than you think!

Describe yourself: The Uncommon Reader (Alan Bennett)

How do you feel: like That Old Cape Magic (Richard Russo)

Describe where you currently live: The Big House (George Howe Colt)

If you could go anywhere, where would you go: Austenland (Shannon Hale)

Your favorite form of transportation: The Red Convertible (Louise Erdrich)

Your best friend is: Olive Kitteridge (Elizabeth Strout)

You and your friends are: Interpreter of Maladies (Jhumpa Lahiri)

What’s the weather like: The Enchanted April (Elizabeth Von Arnim)

You fear: The Help (Kathryn Stockett)

What is the best advice you have to give: Speak (Laurie Halse Anderson)

Thought for the day: The Hour I First Believed (Wally Lamb) ...the best I could come up with

How I would like to die: Fire in the Blood (Irene Nemirovsky)

My soul’s present condition: Change of Heart (Jodi Picoult)


  1. Fun game. You came up with some good titles.

  2. This is cool! Sadly I still haven't read that much books to be able to answer all these questions with a title. Really fun game though :)

  3. I haven't read enough books this year to qualify! But they look like great titles!

  4. Your answers worked really well. I especially liked the title you chose for best advice!

  5. Great answers. Fire in the Blood, hmm? I love your best advice answer.

  6. I thought about choosing Olive K for my best friend too...they both can be very saucy:) It has been fun reading everybody's answers. I wonder where this originated...

  7. This seems like fun! Nice answers! :)

  8. C.B. James - This was fun. I especially liked The Red Convertible as favorite form of transportation!

    Mark David - You could always modify the rules and do this with any books you've read. It was fun to come up with titles to answer the questions!

    Hmsgofita - Maybe you could bend the rules a bit - lol! This was a fun diversion.

    Laura's Reviews - Thanks!

  9. Staci - Especially after just finishing the book, Speak is excellent advice. Didn't have to think at all to come up with that answer!

    Charley - Fire in the Blood sounds painful, but was the best I could come up with for a way to die - lol!

    BookPSmith - My choice came down to Olive Kitteridge and Therese Raquin. Not sure I'd want Therese for a friend - lol!

    Kals - Thanks. It was fun coming up with the answers.

  10. I just did this last night (to be posted this weekend) and it was so much fun. I do believe that your answers are far better than mine :)

  11. Great answers! As much fun to read as it clearly was to do. Thanks!

  12. stacybuckeye - I'll be sure to look for your answers this weekend!

    ds - It was fun...go ahead and give it a try!

  13. Good titles. I liked the first one very much!

  14. this is such a fun meme! Were there other questions, that you didn't answer, or did you have books to fit all the questions?

  15. Dawn - These were all the questions. The only one I couldn't come up with an answer that made sense was 'thought for the day'. It wasn't as easy as I thought it would be!
