Tag #3: The New York Times By The Book Tag

I saw this awesome tag on Getting Through Anxiety a couple days ago!

You know me, I love anything that deals with books!

The New York Times is also close to my heart. I was born in NYC. I get the NYT news alerts to my email. I did my college internship with a division of the NYT, the Shared Services Center in Norfolk, Virginia!

Okay – Here we go!


What book is on your nightstand right now?

  • I currently do not have a nightstand in our bedroom (Still moving!) Haha. So, I’ll go with the book on my living room couch – “The One and Only: A Maryellen Classic 1.” I’m absolutely hooked on the BeForever series from American Girl!

If you could meet one author (living or dead) who would it be? What would you ask?

  • Tough question! I’d love to meet F. Scott Fitzgerald, since he wrote my favorite book. I’d ask him if he had a timeline or structure for writing and editing his works. I’ve written parts of three novels, but I haven’t mapped out the time to edit them!

What books might we be surprised to see on your shelf?

  • Maybe all of Nicholas Sparks’s novels? I studied the perceptions of love and romance of female readers of his novels for my college senior thesis, so I re-read them all in prep for my research and study.

How do you organize your personal library?

  • Right now, my huge bookcase is still at my parents’ house. I’m pretty picky – I try to organize everything by author, and then everything in the order of that author’s publication. I may reorganize it better when we move said bookcase into our house!

What book have you always meant to read but haven’t gotten round to yet?

Disappointing, overrated, just not good: what book did you feel you were supposed to like but didn’t?

  • The Divergent series. Thinking about all of them, it was a let-down.

What kind of stories are you drawn to?

  • Historical fiction, definitely. I love the Dear America series in particular.
  • Human interest stories (Think Chicken Soup for the Soul, etc.)
  • Certain crime novels.

What do you plan to read next?

  • Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee.

  2. Interesting answers!

  3. Love this! I need to get back into reading! I love it, but lately with my new promotion, trying to get pregnant, and remodeling the house, I just haven’t found the time, but I love to read!
