Literary Junkies Link Up

It's time for my all time favorite link up! After reading through this make sure you hop over and enter my Christmas giveaway!

If you could write a book,
what would it be about?
Maybe about first love or “The One Who Got Away.” I love girly books!
If you had to read one book or trilogy for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Maybe Little Women. It's a pretty long book so it would take some time and the story is timeless.
Who is your current favorite book character and why?
Liesl from The Book Thief. She's brave, resilient, and smart.
Is there a book you read every year during the holiday season? If so, what is it and why?
I don't have a book I read every year, and it's probably because I don't have children. If I did have kids I would read them The Polar Express and The Night Before Christmas.

Do you have any books on your Christmas list? Name a few.
Of course!
War Brides by Helen Bryan
The Runaway Princess by Hester Browne
Kate: The Future Queen by Katie Nicholl
Safe with Me and The Language of Sisters by Amy Hatvany
Kate: A Biography by Maria Moody
What is a book you read and loved that you didn't expect to?
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I didn't expect it to live up to the hype.
I can't wait to see which books are under my tree on Christmas morning!


  1. Little Women is a great choice! And I also loved The Fault in Our Stars. I am usually disappointed by books with lots of hype because they don't live up to my (usually unreasonable) expectations, but I did love that one!

  2. P.S. - I LOVE the name of your blog! So clever. That's what made me pick this link out of the link-up list!

  3. Can you believe I've never read Little Women? It's one of those childhood classics that I just never got around to reading.

  4. The Fault in our Stars is on my to-read list - just haven't gotten around to it. And I still have my copy of Little Women from when I was a kid - my daughter read it last year.

  5. Ah I should have put Little Women as my read over and over book. I love it! And The Fault in Our Stars was incredible.

  6. A book link up!?! This is one I have to participate in!
    Loved Little Women and Polar Express too. Very curious about The Book Thief. Heard lots of good things

  7. The Fault in our Stars was great and I was surprised because I didn't like the other John Green book I read (Paper Towns). Leisl is a great character!

    1. Yeah. I've checked out his other books and they really don't do much for me.

  8. I have The Fault in our Stars sitting on my night stand. Haven't read it yet. I want to read The Book Thief. Several Literary Junkies have mentioned it in their answers. And I have yet to finish Little Women...shame on me. ;) Thanks for linking up!

    1. I recommend them! I've never finished Little Women either... ;) This is my favorite link up! Thanks for having it!
