Turtleheart posted this book meme. I read all the time so I decided to try to answer.

1) One book that changed your life:
The DaVinci Code by Dan Brown. I’m not a conspiracy theorist and I don’t believe everything in the book but it came out during the time I was starting to question my Christian faith. Reading that book made me more open to questioning and made me start thinking more about the divine feminine as a viable entity instead of a demonic idea like I’d previous been taught.

Along the same time I read Soul Survivor by Phillip Yancy. I got this while killing time in a mall. He is a Christian writer that I really liked but this book talked about famous spiritual people who either left the church or rebelled against it.

Anything by Sherri S. Tepper. She writes wonderful feminist and environmentally friendly fantasy stories that really make you think.

2) One book that you’d read more than once:

Icarus Agenda by Robert Ludlum. I love that book and read it at least once a year until my rabbit ate it. Also, I’ve read all the Harry Potter books repeatedly. American Gods by Neil Gaiman.

3) One book you’d want on a deserted island:

Raft Building 101 and How to Navigate by the Stars

4) One book that made you laugh:

Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Prachett

5) One book that made you cry:

Welcome to the Great Mysterious by Lorna Landvik

6) One book you wish you’d written:

The Left Behind series because the women characters are written so badly I always knew I could have done it better.

7) One book you wish had never been written:

Moby Dick and Great Expectations for torturing generations of kids in school.

8) One book you’re currently reading:

Snow by Orhan Pamuk. I was trying to get through it for a book club and just realized that the discussion was last week and I missed it.

9) One book you’ve been meaning to read:

Jane Eyre. I actually have it here but I’m just not getting into it.
