I just finished Atonement… What a tragically beautiful novel. Look for a review sometime this week when I have my thoughts together!

I was tagged by the lovely dashingbooks! Thank you! *-* 

Rule 1: Always post the rules

Rule 2: Answer all the questions the person who tagged you asked and then write 5 new ones

Rule 3: Tag 5 people and link them to the post

Rule 4: Actually tell them you tagged them.


QUESTIONS:
1. What is your favorite book and why? (this is a common question but I’m curious). This is common and might I mention EVIL!?A Room with a View by E.M. Forester and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith are honestly tied.  ATGiB encompasses so much of what I love in a book and Smith’s work is kind of an underrated modern classic.  ARwaV is charming, and lovely, and makes me so happy, Forester was brilliant. 
2. What book from your TBR list are you most excited to read next? Well I have a poll going for which classic(s) I should read for treesofreverie​’s read-a-thon this week, so I’m excited for which ever one ends up winning! (GO VOTE!) 
3. Do you listen to music while you read? If so, what song do you think is perfect for what book? I do sometimes, I like to listen to instrument music but I don’t have a perfect song choice for any particular book… 
4. What book made a big difference to you when you were little? Harry Potter, hands down. 
5. If you could pick a fictional character to be best friends with or marry who would you choose? Best friends? BFF: Anne Shirley. Marry: George Emerson.  


My QUESTIONS:
1. Name an underrated classic you think deserves the spotlight? 
2. Do you lend books to friends or borrow from friends? Why/why not?
3. If you could invite three authors to dinner (living or deceased) who would you choose? 
4.How many books do you read on average per month? 
5. Favorite secondary character?

New Goodreads illustration!  I enjoyed working with the limited palette, and always love painting books. Thanks Jade Change for the direction!
There is supposedly a downloadable poster version they’ll be releasing as well, so keep and eye on their site, if you’re a teacher or librarian or someone who likes books. 
Also, Happy National Library Week!
Oh I love libraries. 
Beautiful!

Once you get this, you must say 5 nice things about yourself publicly and then send it to your ten favourite followers (not back to me, already did it). Thinking good things about yourself is hard, but it will make you feel good so give it a go! :)

1. I’m an excellent gift-giver. Befriend me and I go all out with tiny details and everything…. It’s one of my favorite things to do! 2. I’m easily amused, it doesn’t take much to make me happy. See even that makes me happy! 3. I like to think I’m a decent writer. 4. I’m a very organized person. 5. Being kind/generous are two of my best qualities. This took a long time this stuff is hard!!!!
