Fun-Post Friday: Book Questionnaire

This is a bookish questionnaire I saw on a blog a few weeks ago (can't remember which blog). Anyway, here's the questions and my answers:

01: What author do you own the most books by?

Meg Cabot (8 books)
02: What book do you own the most copies of?
Hush, Hush (2), Boys That Bite (2). I used to have to copies of The Devil Wears Prada.
03: Did it bother you that both those questions ended with prepositions?
Nope. I didn't even notice.
04: What fictional character are you secretly in love with?
Dude. Many! (Read my previous post for a few of my crushes!)
05: What book have you read the most times in your life?
Probably by When Lightning Strikes by Meg Cabot. I must have read it at least 10 times.
06: What was your favorite book when you were ten years old?
Maybe The Body in the Basement by Norah McClintock.
07: What is the worst book you’ve read in the past year?
08: What is the best book you’ve read in the past year?
Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles and Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
09: If you could force everyone you tagged to read one book, what would it be?
I don't think you should force anyone to read a particular book. They might not like it (tip for all teachers out there: The books you choose are boring!)
10: Who deserves to win the next Nobel Prize for 'Literature?
Astrid Lindgren. Everyone in Sweden is pissed of because she never won it!
11: What book would you most like to see made into a movie?
Vampire Academy series.
12: What book would you least like to see made into a movie?
Don't know.
13: Describe your weirdest dream involving a writer, book, or literary character.
Gaah, I think I had a great answer for this one (seriously), but know the memories of my dream have faded away. . .
14: What is the most lowbrow book you’ve read as an adult?
I'm denying that I'm an adult now.
15: What is the most difficult book you’ve ever read?
I usually forget those kind of books!
16: What is the most obscure Shakespeare play you’ve seen?
A Midsummer Night's Dream
17: Do you prefer the French or the Russians?
I hate French, so Russians!
18: Roth or Updike?
Am I supposed to know them?
19: David Sedaris or Dave Eggers?
Dave is a bad nickname for David
20: Shakespeare, Milton, or Chaucer?
Milton's a cute name on a dog.
21: Austen or Eliot?
Is Eliot a girl name or a boy name? Or both?!
22: What is the biggest or most embarrassing gap in your reading?
Umm, did you read my answers for the previous questions? Oh, you missed them? Well, my answers for question 24-27 might give you another clue!
23: What is your favorite novel?
Too hard! I can't choose one!
24: Play?
I'm not a big fan of plays.
25: Poem?
Errr, none!
26; Essay?
27: Short story?
This is getting boring!
28: Work of nonfiction?
29: Who is your favorite writer?
Probably Meg Cabot, she's been a favorite of mine for a long time. She can't write bad books.
30: Who is the most overrated writer alive today?
The work of Nobel Prize winners is usually quite overrated. (Not that I have read all their books, but people usually say so. May have something to do with answer #10)
31: What is your desert island book?
Oh, I'm so glad you asked! I have this special book in a box with the label "Desert Island Book" on it! Haven't opened the box yet though, cause I haven't been to a deserted island yet.
32: And… what are you reading right now?
I have know. . . oh, I actually know the answer to this question! Or, wait. . . is it a trick question?

Okay, okay, I admit it, I was a bit tired when I did this questionnaire. Don't take anything I said too serious! Do this on your own blog if you want to! :)
