BOOK-A-THON

I love books. I enjoy reading. I read everything that I can put my hands on. I found this book survey at Ida's Multiply site weeks ago and I decided to try it and share my answers with you. Tag to my dear friends Aileen, Charo, Tin and Mitz! Thanks to all the wonderful books you lent me through the years. Do try this!

One book that changed your life.
I have two answers. First are the Sweet Valley Twins books by Francine Pascal. They are the very first books that I've read. I think I was only in 4th Grade when I started reading them. Second is the He's Just Not That Into You book by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo (I hate self-help books but this one is just great). I was able to read it in 2005 and it made me think really hard. It helped me assess and do something about in my then relationship.

One book you have read more than once.
Plenty!
Harry Potter 1 to 6 (I read some of them more than twice) by J. K. Rowling
Something Borrowed and Something Blue both by Emily Giffin
Doctors and The Class by Erich Segal
Whitney, My Love by Judith McNaught (one of the best love stories ever)
Sidney Sheldon, John Grisham and Sophie Kinsella books

One book you would want on a desert island.
Tough choice. Angels and Demons by Dan Brown or Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden.

One book that made you laugh.
Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella

One book that made you cry.
I remember that I cried really hard at the ending chapters of The Chamber by John Grisham (weird, huh?)

One book you wish had been written.
Harry Potter 8, 9, 10, 11, 12... (there's still hope depending on Book 7, Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows, to be released on July 21st this year)

One book you wish had never been written.
Self-help books that earns a lot of money for the authors but gives little to me.

One book you are currently reading.
I just finished The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. It's such a different kind of book! Very very well written.

One book you have been meaning to read.
One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
