I feel like this is one of those surveys that I filled out in middle school, only a slightly more literary take on it. So it’s fun, if not particularly enlightening. I found it over at Catherine Pope – Victorian Geek via Annabel Smith.

I love this. How fun! I may have to give it a try.
Do it! It’s a fun way to look back at the book you’ve read and try and interpret their titles in new ways.
This does look like a lot of fun! I’m going to have to try it myself.
Definitely – and I loved Shadow of Night.
I’m glad you decided to do it! I don’t like the sound of your best friend though…
He’s great fun, a terrible influence though 🙂
Great answers! What a fun and funny challenge. 🙂 And your advice for the day answer is hilarious!
I gave this a try myself (http://bookwanderer.wordpress.com/2013/01/11/2012-book-meme/) and I also used The Devil All the Time! What can I say, it’s a fantastic title!
If there is anything I excel at, it is eating cupcakes – particularly chocolate caramel sea salt ones. So at least my advice would be accurate and satisfying!
