The titles tell the story...

I saw this meme over at My Friend Amy, who first saw it at Bookgazing, and it's a fun one.



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 Musician's Daughter (Susanne Dunlap)

How do you feel: Crossed Wires (Rosie Thornton)

Describe where you currently live: A Good House (Bonnie Burnard)

If you could go anywhere, where would you go? By the Shore (Galaxy Craze)

Your favorite form of transportation: Steal Across the Sky (Nancy Kress)

Your best friend is: So Brave, Young and Handsome (Leif Enger)

You and your friends are: Rebel Angels (Libba Bray)

What’s the weather like: Sunnyside Blues (Mary Carter)

You fear: Tightrope (Michael Kaplan)

What is the best advice you have to give: Best Intentions (Emily Listfield)

Thought for the day: Life's That Way (Jim Beaver)

How I would like to die: The Speed of Dark (Elizabeth Moon)

My soul’s present condition: Testimony (Anita Shreve)



That was not as easy as it looks! If you'd like to play along, leave me a comment - I'd love to read about your year in titles!

I think I might try this using all the books I can remember reading ---ever. But that one will take some time to think about.
