Kinsey

Genre of Choice:
Literary fiction, young adult, memoir, fantasy. Really, I will read anything except Westerns and horror.

Favorite Book:
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
(I know, this is almost a cliché, but I just love it. I actually own a pair of shoes that have the first chapter of this book written all over them.)

Comfort Books:
The Blue Castle by L. M. Montgomery
Otherwise Engaged by Suzanne Finnamore
Julie and Julia by Julie Powell
(There has been so much backlash against this book and I agree that her second book was a HOT MESS, but I adore this one. When I can’t sleep, I open it up to a random page and read a chapter or two.)

Guilty Pleasure Books:
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
(That’s right, Anna will admit to loving vampire and werewolf books but will explicitly deny any fondness for Twilight, but I’ll own up to liking these books. And the movies! I don’t think they’re good, I just like them.)

Most Proud to Have Read Book:
Absalom, Absalom by William Faulker
(I only got through it because I was in a book club with a weekly reading schedule, but I really enjoyed it. Also, I would like a t-shirt that notifies everyone around me that I finished this book.)

Books That I Couldn’t Finish:
The Brothers K by David James Duncan
(I enjoyed the first one hundred pages, I want to read it; there is just always a celebrity memoir or period romance that seems more fun. So it sits on my Kindle, mocking me.)

Most Hated Book:
A Light in the Forest by Conrad Richter
(If eighth-grade English teachers are still making their students read this, they have only themselves to blame for the youth of America turning away from books.)
