A childhood book connected to good memories
This book takes me back down memory-lane for sure. My sister taught me how to write in cursive using it. We played 'school' a lot and since she's 7 years older than me, she was always the teacher. One day she decided to teach me how to write in cursive. She wrote the sentences on the back cover, and I copied underneath. GASP! Writing in books now would give me a heart attack. I don't even fold corners.
A book that took you by surprise
If you read My Introduction to Harry Potter, then you know that I was forced to read a bunch of classics in high school, just as most of you were probably. I didn't have any love for them at the time. Once I was an adult, I saw the Keira Knightley version of the movie Pride and Prejudice and fell in love. I went to get the book soon afterwards, and it's one of my favorites.

The last book you read
I haven't gotten the review posted yet, but I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS SERIES!!!
A book that introduced you to a genre you hadn't considered before
The Hunger Games was my first foray into Dystopia. Before this read, I thought I was only into Fantasy. It was added to my list of favorite series, and is one that I reread and watch the movies. I haven't read a whole lot of Dystopia books, but the ones that I have read are fantastic.
A book that was painful to read
Richelle Mead is a favorite author of mine. I enjoy The Vampire Academy Series and the spin-off The Bloodlines Series. I've also heard the Georgina Kincaid Series is good, but I haven't started that one yet. So I was expecting something really good. Especially with a title like Gameboard of the Gods. In my opinion though, this one was just lacking. I couldn't get into it at all. I did make it to the end and gave it 2.5 stars, but it was a rough ride.
Avada Kedavra -
A book that could kill (interpret that as you may)
The first one that came to mind is The Book of Amun-Ra or The Book of the Living from The Mummy. It's the one that is confused with The Book of the Dead in the film. The Book of Amun-Ra has spells and incantations that can take life away from mortals while The Book of the Dead gives life back. In my opinion, both cause death considering that The Book of the Dead brought back Imhotep.
As Evie says, "It's just a book. No harm ever came from reading a book."
