If you follow me on instagram you probably saw that I’m having a hard time with my reading right now. I’m not worried – talking to some of you it seems like we’re all suffering from the same malady. But being in a reading slump does have some repercussions when you blog about books. So when I saw that Jennine from My Life in Books had tagged me in this little quiz, well it could not have come at a better time! This should buy me some time to get excited about something I read right?
Here’s the deal. I’m going to answer some questions and then if you’re in a similar reading slump and you need to play for time on your blog, then feel free to take it and play too!

I did see About Time, but Love Actually is the best!
I never did read The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow. I’m pretty sure it’s somewhere on my list, though.
Have fun on your Honeymoon! Is it the same trip as the Barcelona trip, or are they separate?
It was fun getting to know more about you! I hope you get out of your reading slump soon, though. 🙂
But you can really only watch Love Actually at Christmas and About Time can be watched ANY TIME.
Barcelona and the honeymoon are one in the same. A quick detour on the way to Italy. SO EXCITED.
I’m reading Unbroken right now which is pretty unbelieveable so I’m hopeful that I’ve kicked it. Otherwise it might be time to break out the big guns: Maeve Binchy.
Unbroken should it. It’s nonfiction that even I loved!
So much fun to learn more about you! I’m so happy you mentioned About Time because I loved it and was so worried that maybe no one else had seen it because it deserves more recognition.
I agree with you on About Time! Seems like no one has seen it and I think if more people watched it, more people would be happier. All this talk about it makes me want to watch it. Again!
Thanks for the reminder to buy A Man Called Ove. And really? No chips? None at all?
Very rarely. They are just not my thing. I fall very firmly in the sweets category. Cookies, cakes, pastries, chocolate, ice cream? Give me all of them. Chips? I’m good.
I can’t believe you haven’t bought A Man Called Ove yet. Go get it now.
You are so much more well traveled than I am. I’ve never left the country (I don’t count Canada simply because it wasn’t a culture shock for me. Although I did always wonder as a kid how my American dollar could buy way more than a dollar’s worth of candy in the 80s! Lol). Guess that should be a bucket list item for me.
It was kind of cheating – I lived in Amsterdam for 6 months and travelling from there was so easy. I’ve been almost nowhere in the States or even in Canada so….As for the dollar value – don’t get me started. It’s like 82 cents to your dollar right now!
