My Life as a Book

Pop Culture Nerd posted this on Facebook today and I couldn't resist. The object is to fill in these autobiographical statements using only titles of books you've read this year (2011).

I grew up in: Calabama (Steve Brewer) 

Now I live in: L.A. Noire (Megan Abboott, Lawrence Block, Duane Swierczynski, et al)

Weekends at my house are: In the Garden of Beasts (Erik Larson)

My ex was: The Cold Kiss (John Rector) 

My superhero secret identity is: Queenpin (Megan Abbott)

You wouldn't like me when I'm angry because: (it's not) Fun & Games (Duane Swierczynski)

I'd win a gold medal in: A Drop of the Hard Stuff (Lawrence Block)

I'd pay good money for: Dope (Sara Gran)

If I were president, I would: (say) Heads You Lose (Lisa Lutz & David Hayward)

When I don't have good books it feels like: The End of Everything (Megan Abbott)

Loud talkers at the movies should be: (banished) In the Living Room of the Dead (Eric Stone)

Hey, that was fun! Leave your own answers on your blog (send me the link) or in the comment section.

  1. That was FANTASTIC!!! Great idea. I don’t think any of the books I read would work that way though.
