Life According to Literature Meme

I've been tagged for this one by a few people in blogs and on Facebook. I am finally getting to it...

The rules: Using only books you have read this year (2009), cleverly answer these questions. Try not to repeat a book title. It’s a lot harder than you think!

Describe yourself: Another Mother's Life (Rowan Coleman)

How do you feel: A Blind Man Can See How Much I Love You (Amy Bloom)

Describe where you currently live: Netherland (Joseph O'Neill)

If you could go anywhere, where would you go? Away (Amy Bloom)

Your favorite form of transportation: Unaccustomed Earth (Jhumpa Lahiri)

Your best friend is: Coraline (Neil Gaiman)

You and your friends are: Smart Girls Like Me (Diane Vadino)

What’s the weather like: Labor Day (Joyce Maynard)

You fear: Gods Behaving Badly (Marie Phillips)

What is the best advice you have to give: There's No Place Like Here (Cecelia Ahern)

Thought for the day: Breath (Tim Winton)

How I would like to die: Slumberland (Paul Beatty)

My soul’s present condition: Dog Years (Mark Doty)

I like how the directions for this meme demand cleverness - it makes me smile. Thanks for reminding me about all the Amy Bloom I have to read...I've been neglecting her.

I like this, particularly your fear!

This is such a great meme. I am going to have to do it. What did you think of Gods Behaving Badly? I loved it when I read it, and I'm now a fan of Marie's blog.

Great answers! I must read Amy Bloom (everyone under the sun has been recommending her to me.)

Courtney -- yes the "cleverness" command did make it tougher. ;-)

musings -- Can you imagine if that were a true story? That would be most excellent, but quite scary.

Charlotte -- I loved Gods Behaving Badly. I didn't know about Marie's blog, but now I will have to check it out. Thanks!

Emily -- I was surprised by how much I liked Amy Bloom because so many people recommended her to me too. That usually results in me disliking, but not in this case.
