This has been floating around for awhile. It really made me thing about what I’ve read. I’ve answered to the best of my ability, but I’m still not sure I have the right answers…
A book you’ve read more than once: Hmm, haven’t read to many books more than once. But I’ll say The Fellowship of the Ring. The two readings were nearly ten years apart so I had completely forgotten the story.
A book you would take on a desert island: Maybe Blood Meridian because it’s a book I could read several times and still find something I hadn’t seen before.
A book that made you cry: Books don’t really make me break down and cry, though my eyes do get a little moist sometimes. I just finished a book called Voices from Chernobyl and, as I said in my review, it has some of them most heartbreaking true stories.
A book that scared you: World War Z. It’s a book about the aftermath of a global war against Zombies. It may sound cheesey but it’s very well thought out. I wasn’t afraid while reading it but walking outside at night after reading some of it I was afraid I’d be attacked by a zombie neighbor.
A book that made you laugh out loud: The Road, kidding… A Primate’s Memoir. He tells some pretty crazy stories.
A book that disgusted you: Being Dead. It had some disgusting parts describing decaying bodies but also I thought it was a unlikable in several ways.
A book you loved in preschool: No Idea, I can’t remember that far back.
A book you loved in elementary school: Touchdown for Tommy, I read that book a couple of times. Later it was The Hunt for Red October which was the most advanced book I had read to that point.
A book you loved in middle school: Red Storm Rising, another Tom Clancy book, he used to be my favorite author. Now I stay away from his books.
A book you loved in high school: The Stranger. It was a strange and melancholy book, also it was the inspiration for a song by one of my favorite bands, The Cure.
A book you hated in high school: The Sound and the Fury. I couldn’t stand the way it was written. Didn’t like it at all.
A book you loved in college: Fahrenheit 451. I was going through a rough time in life and it really touched me, probably because it’s fairly dark and depressing.
A book that challenged your identity: That’s a tough one, the closest is probably The Omnivore’s Dilemma. That challenged my identity as a consumer, what I am eating as opposed to what I should be eating.
A series that you love: Patrick O’Brien’s Aubrey/Maturin books. I love reading about the old navy, the fighting sail ships. His books somehow pull you in and the characters really grow on you.
Your favorite horror book: World War Z, as I mentioned above it’s very well thought out.
Your favorite science fiction book: Dune. Something about this book makes it fantastic. However, I still haven’t gotten to the rest of the series for some reason.
Your favorite fantasy book: The Lord of the Rings series. I chose all three of them. A great story with a lot of depth, Tolkien created an amazingly detailed world.
Your favorite mystery: I’m reading my first right now, it’s called Messenger of Truth. It being my first I guess it’s my favorite…
Your favorite biography: I haven’t read many biographies. I read one about Hitler, sounds a bit twisted, but I guess it’s my favorite by default.
Your favorite classic: Crime and Punishment. I’m trying to read more classics, so this could change, also, what is the definition of a classic?
Your favorite romance book: Haven’t read any
Your favorite book not on this list: 1984. This book is amazing, it’s quite depressing and ends with complete hopelessness. That isn’t very common. As you can tell I like depressing books…

What book have you been meaning to read: Ender’s Game for about the last 5 years now. Should be getting to it soon.
