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 🙂

- 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.
- 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.
- 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
- Favorite classic book. My stock answer for this question is Little Women 🙂 But I have more than a few favorites!
- A book that disappointed you. Paper Towns by John Green
- 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
- A character who you can relate to the most. Probably Jo March from Little Women.
- 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.
- A thought-provoking book. I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist by
- Book that made you laugh out loud. Stuff Christians Like by Jon Acuff
- A favorite author. Among many others, Seth Godin, author of Purple Cow, The Icarus Deception, & Tribes
- Favorite childhood book. Not that I could pick just one, but The Bronze Bow by Elizabeth George Speare is definitely one of them.
- Book with a clever story line. Just Ella by Maragaret Peterson Haddix
- Book you couldn’t put down. Money Making Mom by Crystal Paine
- Book I want to see made into a movie. The Advocate by Randy Singer
- Book that left a surprising impression. The Aviator’s Wife by Melanie Benjamin
- One of the best stories you’ve read in the last 12 months. Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline
- 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
- One of the most inspirational books you’ve read in the last 12 months. Tortured for Christ by Richard Wurmbrand
- Favorite book series. Anne of Green Gables.
- 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!
