Follow Friday #8

Yay! Did you know that the number 8 is my favorite number? :) It's so... even. You divide it in half, you get four, which is an even number, and you can divide four in half to get two, another even number. That's a lot of even numbers!

Sorry, I love even numbers. A lot. So, Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. This week's question is...

Q: Summer Reading. What was your favorite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school?

Ohmygoodness. Uh... I liked the Crucible by Arthur Miller from this past year (my 10th grade year). I thought it was hilarious how they were all running around and pointing at random people, screaming, "WITCH!!" :O That's a play, but it still counts, right?

I loved The Odyssey (by Homer, of course) during my ninth grade year, as well as the Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. Those two were kind of weird, and we didn't read the entire Odyssey (just quite a few passages of it, and then my teacher summarized the chapters we skipped). But they were still really fun to read.

I can't tell you my middle school favorites, because middle school is a blur in my mind, to be honest. I remember disliking, like two books from 6th grade and then the rest of middle school reading is hazy. So, my three answers are up there, and they'll suffice. I couldn't pick a favorite from them - I only somewhat liked them - so you get three answers.

And BTW - I was watching Doctor Who just earlier. It was the one where the Doctor (David Tennant, not Matt Smith) was with Donna in the biggest library in the universe. It was as big as the planet! Nobody was in there because the alien shadows were killing them. Don't you just love Doctor Who? The world's biggest and most dangerous library... my happy place (without the shadows, of course). ^.^

Have a blessed day and keep writing. :)

This is a picture quote I made myself, using Paint and fotoflexer. I also posted it on my Tumblr, though I've never gotten around to posting the link to my Tumblr on my blog. 


  1. I loved The Secret Life of Bees. We had to real all of The Odessey (also 9th grade) and that is the only book I read in school that I didn't really "read"- I skipped about quite a bit.

  2. I have not read any of these xP but I should!

  4. Great answers! All very good books. I still love that Doctor Who episode, though I'm not into River Song so that part I'm less excited about.

  5. I didnt like The Odyssey!
    Then again, I dont like books where the language/dialogue is hard to understand!

    Great choices though!
