Chuck A Book with Carly from Writing From The Tub

Today on Chuck A Book, I have the lovely Carly from Writing From The Tub. 
1. The best book you have ever read.
The Bell Jar – Sylvia Plath or The Perks of Being a Wallflower – Stephen Chbosky (sorry, Viv – I *can’t* choose between them)
2. A book you loved from your childhood.
The Magic Faraway Tree - Enid Blyton
3. A book that made you laugh.
Getting Revenge on Lauren Wood – Eileen Cook
4. A book you could not finish.
I haven’t actually had any books in years that I haven’t finished. If I wasn’t reading it as a joke I definitely wouldn’t have finished Fifty Shades of Grey; I struggled enough as it was and even then I was reading it as a comedy…
5. A book that made you swoon.
Diary of a Crush: French Kiss – Sarra Manning
6. A book you can’t wait to read.
Days of Blood and Starlight – Laini Taylor
7. A series you have read and loved.
The Ruby Oliver series – E. Lockhart
8. A book that made you cry.
The Knife of Never Letting Go – Patrick Ness
9. Your guilty pleasure book.
Diary of a Chav – Grace Dent
10. A book that took you out of your comfort zone.
Living Next Door to the God of Love – Justina Robson (everyone who knows me knows I am absolutely not a fantasy girl but this is one of my all time favourites)
Thank you Carly from some brilliant books to explore further. Quite a few I haven't read. In fact, a few I haven't even heard of.

  1. I so agree with Carly's choice of The Magic Faraway Tree - along with the other books in the series this was almost one of my favourite childhood stories.

  2. I bet I would have loved The Magic Faraway Tree when I was a kid. I loved the Patrick Ness series too!

  3. The Bell Jar is indeed great. I've never heard of Living Next Door to the God of Love *toddles off to Amazon*

  4. Great picks, Carly! Diary of a Crush looks cute! :)

  5. Dairy of a Chav? Serious? that's so funny. Didn't know that book existed. going to look it up now.
