Which titles are you?

On my morning blog-round I discovered this fun little meme at Bookgirl's Nightstand - http://www.bookgirl.net/ - and I can help myself...
The idea is to fill in the rest of the sentence with a title of a book read in the past year.

In school I was: Anne of Green Gables
- at least in my imagination.. (by L.M. Montgomery)

People might be surprised I’m: A Fraction of the Whole (by Steve Tolz)

I will never be: The 19th Wife(by David Ebershoff)

My fantasy job is: Cooler, Faster, More Expensive (by Peter York and Olivia Stewart-Liberty)

At the end of a long day I need: Guilty Pleasures (by Laurell K. Hamilton)

I hate it when: I Am Charlotte Simmons (by Tom Wolfe)

Wish I had: The Swimming Pool Library (by Alan Hollinghurst)

My family reunions are: An Education (by Lynn Barber)

At a party you’d find me with: The Three Musketeers (by Alexandre Dumas) or The Sopranos (by Alan Warner)

I’ve never been to: The Oregon Trail (by Francis Parkman)

A happy day includes: Friends, Lovers and Other Indiscretions - well skip lovers and my it friends and my boyfriend... (by Fiona Neill)

Motto I live by: Sense and Sensibility (by Jane Austen)

On my bucket list: Wedlock (by Wendy Moore)

In my next life, I want to be: The Brightest Star in the Sky - I admit, I haven't ret it yet but it will be landing in my mailbox very soon! (by Alan Warner)

Now it's your turn - fill it out and post a comment so that I can pop by your blog and read your answers!


  1. That is great. I love your "I hate it when I am Charlotte Simmons."

    Did you like that book? I can't remember if I finished it or not. I picked it up a few year ago but remember thinking it sounded as though Wolfe was writing 18-year-olds as he thought they sounded and not as they actually were. I'm curious if it got better.

  2. Willa Thank you so much for playing! Love your answers. Isn't it fun to do this? Oh and I love a lot of guilty pleasures too - haha...

  3. What I fun meme! I love your last one "In my next life, I want to be: The Brightest Star in the Sky".
