21 Questions

Let’s play a game. I’m in a bit of a blogging slump and I need a boost! Below is a list of 21 bookish questions for answering pleasure 🙂 Most of the questions are from a 30 Day Book Challenge from Blogs of a Bookaholic, and I came up with the rest.

I generally read more non-fiction than fiction but for these questions, I’ll draw from the fiction I’ve read over the years. However, there will be some non-fiction titles and authors too 🙂

21 Questions

(this post contains affiliate links)

  1. The longest book you’ve read.  I think the longest novel I’ve ever read was Gone with the Wind…I think. Yeah, I’m pretty sure.
  2. Your “comfort” book.  One of my favorite YA novels is A Countess Below Stairs by Eva Ibbotson. I revisit that audiobook at least once or twice in a year just for a visit.
  3. Book you’ve read the most number of times.  I honestly have no clue. Through and through, possibly A Countess Below Stairs, or Hope Was Here by Joan Bauer, or The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare 
  4. Favorite classic book. My stock answer for this question is Little Women 🙂 But I have more than a few favorites!  
  5. A book that disappointed you. Paper Towns by John Green
  6. Book that made you cry.  I think Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline was the last book that made me cry. And before that, John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars, of course
  7. A character who you can relate to the most. Probably Jo March from Little Women.
  8. A character do you wish you could be most like? Ever since I read Jane Eyre, I’ve loved her individuality and devotion to standards, goodness, and honesty and I want to emulate those qualities.
  9. A thought-provoking book. I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist by Norman L. Geisler & Frank Turek
  10. Book that made you laugh out loud. Stuff Christians Like by Jon Acuff 
  11. A favorite author. Among many others, Seth Godin, author of Purple Cow, The Icarus Deception, & Tribes
  12. Favorite childhood book. Not that I could pick just one, but The Bronze Bow by Elizabeth George Speare is definitely one of them.
  13. Book with a clever story line. Just Ella by Maragaret Peterson Haddix  
  14. Book you couldn’t put down. Money Making Mom by Crystal Paine 
  15. Book I want to see made into a movie. The Advocate by Randy Singer 
  16. Book that left a surprising impression. The Aviator’s Wife by Melanie Benjamin
  17. One of the best stories you’ve read in the last 12 months. Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline
  18. One of the most heartwarming books you’ve read in the last 12 months. Eight Twenty Eight: When Love Didn’t Give Up by Ian & Larissa Murphy
  19. One of the most inspirational books you’ve read in the last 12 months. Tortured for Christ by Richard Wurmbrand
  20. Favorite book series. Anne of Green Gables.
  21. All-time favorite book. This is usually the hardest question for a book-nerd to answer but it’s super simple for me: the Bible. As a Christian, I cherish the Word as God’s personal love letter to this world and I love it. Charles Spurgeon is quoted to have said,

Visit many good books, but live in the Bible.

I agree. There are many good, even great books but the Bible is the best. My go-to version is the KJV and one of my favorite editions is the Life Application Bible. If you don’t have a Bible, I definitely encourage you to get one :). And if you have one but haven’t cracked it open in awhile, don’t miss out on the wonderfulness (yes, I said wonderfulness) of God’s Word!
