A book you’ve read more than once:
Emily of New Moon by L.M. Montgomery jumps to mind, but I have re-read a LOT of books in my time.
A book you would take on a desert island:
Hmmm…probably the Bible. It’s a nice number of books all in one.
A book that made you cry:
The Notebook by Nicolas Sparks. Where the Red Fern Grows.
A book that scared you:
As a rule of thumb, I don’t read scary books. I avoid anything noted as “scary” mostly. If I think a book will scare me, I don’t read it. However, I have a pretty high tolerance for creepy books.

A book you loved in college:
Well, on the silly front- The Alphabetical Hookup series books were a bit life-altering at one point. Not because of their content, but because of the drama they caused!
