Welcome back to the second edition of my weekly blog, Way Back Wednesdays. Here’s what ya do:
1. Grab a book of your shelf that you have not reviewed on your site (unless you’ve been blogging a super long time). Selection can either be random, or an oldie but goodie that you’re dying to share with people. List title and author.
2. Give a 7 word description of the book.
3. If you can, post a picture of the book.
4. Open the book at random and type the 3rd full sentence found on the right hand page (or the left, if you’re left handed- Midnight Book Girl does not discriminate- do both pages if you’re ambidextrous).
5. Answer these questions:
1. Did you like the book?
2. How well do you remember it?
3. Would you recommend it?
4. Would you re-read it?
6. Post a link to your post in my comments box, or just answer there if you’re not going to post the picture of the book cover.
Here’s my Way Back Wednesday book:
1. The Good Fairies of New York by Martin Millar
2. Scottish faeries fight, love,drink in NYC.
4. Dinnie protested to the disgusted Heather that it was all a mistake and he still really loved Kerry, but the fairy, after a few cutting insults concerning his sexual performance and what an unimpressive sight he made in the shower, had simply packed her things and left. Pg 200
5: 1. Did you like the book? Very much so. I love Millar’s style of writing.
2. How well do you remember it? Not as well as I should because there are lots of characters, but I remember the basic plot and the humor of the story.
3. Would you recommend it? I would, although Millar’s style and subject is not for everyone. We read Millar’s Lux the Poet for our book club, and my friend Bittner hated it. He’s a strange, quirky writer. Which is why I love him.
4. Would you re-read it? Absolutely. My favorite book by him is Lonely Werewolf Girl, but The Good Fairies of New York was a funny, bizzare and interesting read.
6. Ha! Step six doesn’t apply to me since this is my blog. But I can’t wait to read your posts!
