My Life in Books, Version 2010

Last year I participated in a fun meme to describe my life in terms of the books I read during the year. Now Pop Culture Nerd has created a 2010 version of the meme with new sentences. Who can resist? Definitely not me! Here are my answers using only the titles of the books I've read so far this year. (All but one title are mysteries.)

In high school I was Unseen.

People might be surprised I'm
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest.

I will never be
The Ice Princess.

My fantasy job is
The Chalk Circle Man.

At the end of a long day I need
Homemade Sin.

I hate it when
The Confederate General Rides North.

Wish I had
Dolled Up for Murder.

My family reunions are
Where Memories Lie.

At a party you'd find me with
The Sleeping and the Dead.

I've never been to
Taroko Gorge.

A happy day includes
Playing With Bones.

Motto I live by
Anything Goes.

On my bucket list
A Beautiful Place to Die.

In my next life, I want to be
The Devil Amongst the Lawyers.

It's so much fun to read everyone's answers! If you decide to do this, please come back and let me know-- I want to see your answers, too!


  1. It is a fun meme isn't it Cathy - I loved your party answer especially - perhaps you feel the same way about big parties as I do :)

  2. I'm going to be borrowing this from you and them! Great answers.

  3. This is great...have re-posted it with my answers here:

  4. Cathy - Thanks for sharing your list. I had a lot of fun with this meme, too! I just love your answers to these prompts : ).

  5. Bernadette-- Yes, that particular title sums up my feelings about big parties rather nicely. ;)

    Ryan-- I'm really looking forward to your answers!

    Bev-- Ooh! Gotta go take a look! Thanks!

    Margot-- There's something about this sort of thing that really lets my mind play. I'm glad you enjoyed my answers. :)

  6. Homemade sin indeed. *snort*

    (But nowadays it may ´only´ be something containing a spot of animal or vegetable fat).

  7. Dorte-- I should have known it would be you who would home in on my homemade sin! ;)

  8. Great answers, Cathy. I especially love your next life one! Thanks.

  9. Some of your answers are priceless!!

    Thanks for stopping by and checking out mine earlier.

  10. Oh I love this meme! I remember it from last year. Great answers.

  11. This meme always makes me chuckle but it's always so hard for me to answer it myself! I'll have to think about doing it.

  12. Michael-- I was hoping someone would mention that one! ;)

    Kelly-- You're very welcome!

    Beth-- Thanks!

    Kris-- I have trouble with so many others out there that I'm glad this one always seems to be easy.
