Meme time again

I'm going to give this following meme a try. I haven't been tagged to my knowledge, but to hell with it, I can't withstand a good survey. loserI won't tag anyone either, feel free to try to your survey-writing delight.

Which book do you irrationally cringe away from reading, despite seeing only positive reviews?

I don't know if there's one I irrationally stray from

If you could bring three characters to life for a social event (afternoon tea, a night of clubbing, perhaps a world cruise), who would they be and what would the event be?

I'll be naughty and say Henry from the Blood series, Jean-Claude (early) from the early Anita Blake Series, and Eric from the Sookie Stackhouse series.


(Borrowing shamelessly from the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde): you are told you can’t die until you read the most boring novel on the planet. While this immortality is great for awhile, eventually you realise it’s past time to die. Which book would you expect to get you a nice grave?

I can't think of the name ( I think I have barred it from my mind on purpose), but it was a novel from Agatha Christie. I like her, I really do, but if I had read this book from her first I would have forever shunned the author.

Come on, we’ve all been there. Which book have you pretended, or at least hinted, that you’ve read, when in fact you’ve been nowhere near it?

LOL I don't think I've actually done this.

As an addition to the last question, has there been a book that you really thought you had read, only to realise when you read a review about it/go to ‘reread’ it that you haven’t? Which book?

Nope, not that I can recall.

You’re interviewing for the post of Official Book Advisor to some VIP (who’s not a big reader). What’s the first book you’d recommend and why? (if you feel like you’d have to know the person, go ahead of personalise the VIP)
It's hard for me to get it into my head that someone can't get into fiction if it's not good enough. I wouldn't be able to try out though, because I'm too indecisive lol. Maybe I shouldn't have taken this meme after all with these answers, sheesh.

A good fairy comes and grants you one wish: you will have perfect reading comprehension in the foreign language of your choice. Which language do you go with?
French, just because I've always wanted to know the language.

A mischievious fairy comes and says that you must choose one book that you will reread one a year for the rest of your life (you can read other books as well). Which book would you pick?
Guilty pleasures from the Anita Blake Series. Actually, the series 1-10 would be perfect.

I know that the book blogging community, and its various challenges, have pushed my reading borders. What’s one bookish thing you ‘discovered’ from book blogging (maybe a new genre, or author, or new appreciation for cover art-anything)?
Besides wanting to jump into different genres, I've renewed my love for bookmarks. I haven't done the reading prompts yet.

That good fairy is back for one final visit. Now, she’s granting you your dream library! Describe it. Is everything leatherbound? Is it full of first edition hardcovers? Pristine trade paperbacks? Perhaps a few favourite authors have inscribed their works? Go ahead-let your imagination run free.
This ones easy! A large room with a huge fireplace, wall to wall bookshelves everything, a hard wood floor with large cozy rug and table with chairs, a big desk in the corner with a high chair and kick-butt computer system. There would also need to be a killer stereo system in the room, complete with an old fashioned turntable. A small bar in one corner, and there would be an area for tea. I really don't care for hardcover but they would look nicer, while I'd still stick to mainly paperback. I'd want a ladder to go back and forth between the shelves. There would need to be a alrge window, with a built in window seat, overlooking a lovely view. People can dream, right?
