Day 6- If you were stranded on a desert island, what book would you want?
The biggest book ever! Full of loads of books and short stories, so it would keep me busy whilst I wait for rescue…or try to make a raft by tethering some turtles together… (the joke is relatively unfunny - even if you know where it is from :L)
Day 7- Favorite movie adaptation of a book
all of the Lord Of The Rings’, all of the Harry Potters, Fight Club, V For Vendetta, 1984 and many many more.
Day 8- Favorite quote from any book
“and in that moment I swear we were infinite” - The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky.
Day 9- What are you currently reading?
The Catcher In The Rye - J.D. Salinger
Less Than Zero - Bret Easton Ellis
