My Life According to Book Titles

My friend Michael over at Lazy Thoughts From a Boomer completed this fun meme that he saw on Pop Culture Nerd's blog. I couldn't resist it - it had to do with book titles; what can I say? You can only use book titles from books you've read this year, and you're not supposed to repeat any titles. (Luckily it said nothing about using more than one title from the same author!) So here goes:

1. Describe yourself: A Real Basket Case (Beth Groundwater)
2. I feel like The Help (Kathryn Stockett)
3. Describe where you currently live: The Crossroads (Chris Grabenstein)
4. If I could go anywhere, I would go to The Water's Edge. (Karen Fossum)
5. Your favorite form of transport: The Camel Bookmobile (Masha Hamilton)
6. Your best friend is Silent Counsel. (Ken Isaacson)
7. My friends and I are Antiques to Die For. (Jane Cleland)
8. What's the weather like? A Cool Breeze on the Underground (Don Winslow)
9. What is life to you? A Dangerous Affair (Caro Peacock)
10. I fear Breathing Water. (Timothy Hallinan)
11. I know Some Like It Hot Buttered (Jeffrey Cohen)
12. Best advice I can give: Trust No One. (Gregg Hurwitz)
13. Thought for the day: Kindness Goes Unpunished. (Craig Johnson)
14. How I would like to die: Death Without Company. (Craig Johnson)
15. My soul's present condition: Out Cold. (Tom Schreck)

A couple of side notes. I really do live on the crossroads. I'm a corner house at the intersection of E. 32nd and Palm. I was all set to say for #11 that I know "The Way Home" but then I saw Pop Culture Nerd's and she used that one. I also debated using "Another Man's Moccasins" for my favorite form of transportation, but since I'd already used Craig Johnson multiple times, I used "The Camel Bookmobile."

This was fun. If you decide to try it yourself, let me know and leave me a link so I can check it out.

What a great set of answers, and read titles, Jen. I especially love # 7 (Antiques to Die For). Too funny. I knew you'd come up with some good ones. Thanks.

These are great; numbers 1, 2 & 7 are hilarious.

It seems everyone read more appropriate and entertaining titles for this meme than I. My list of eligible titles was mostly dark and disturbing.

Thanks for linking to my blog. Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend with lots of juicy reading.

Tee hee, Jen! I hope your life doesn't go TO HELL IN A HANDBASKET anytime soon. ;-)
