I got tagged!

From Meljean:

Total number of books I own:

No clue, probably around a thousand right now. Maybe more, maybe less.

Last book(s) I bought:

Bought Return of the Warrior by Kinley MacGregor, The Moon Witch by Linda Winstead Jones, and Once Upon a Princess by Holly Jacobs last night. I hadn't planned to buy them, but was on a Symphony chocolate hunt with my husband. Went to Target first to redeem pop cans and I checked out the book section there as usual. Nothing I wanted. Well, Target didn't have Symphony bars and well, dear husband really REALLY wanted Symphony chocolate, so we went to Hy-Vee. Hmm...they have a book section, too. So I picked these up. Also picked up the chocolate. Dear husband made me pay. Apparently guys don't like to be seen buying chocolate and romance books together, even if they aren't for them. *g*

Last book(s) I read:

All review books. Big Girls Don't Cry by Donna Hill, Brenda Jackson, Monica Jackson, and Francis Ray; Caught in the Act by Pam McCutcheon; and The Givenchy Code by Julie Kenner. All were quite good.

Five books that mean a lot to me:

This is hard. I don't really think about this much. Honestly, I don't. So here are some of my favorite rereads from the past.

Beauty by Robin McKinley
Brighter Than the Sun by Julia Quinn
The Rowan by Anne McCaffrey
The Black Stallion by Walter Farley
Semper Fi, Book I: The Corps by W.E.B. Griffin (I remember stealing this from my dad and reading it. Love the early books of this series, as well as the Brotherhood of War series)

Robin McKinley's Beauty is one of my faves too; it was the book that showed me it was possible to rewrite fairy tales. 'Course, not like I needed any help--and it's a ripping good read, besides.

Ditto on BEAUTY, THE ROWAN and THE BLACK STALLION -- I recently reread BEAUTY and was struck once again by how much I loved it. It's one of those books I kind of forget about, but then when I see it on the shelf I'm like: oh yeah! Loved that! :)

Echoing everybody here, and double on the shelf-memory thing. :D

Have you read the rewritten version of BEAUTY?

Nicole said...

CW, I'm not sure if I have. I don't think so. I read Beauty, but for some reason I never read the ones that came after. I've read some of her other stuff, but don't remember what it was.

sybil said...

I just did mine, both you and cw tagged me. So you can both have me ;).

CW said...

No prob. BEAUTYv2 is an interesting take, and I just asked in case you had read it. :D

I haven't read SUNSHINE (I've seen it categorized as vampire chick lit), but I did read the one before that, DEERSKIN. Definitely not for kids, but it's also really mystically-ish. Par for McKinley. :D

Yay, go Sybil! Heh.
