Life According to Literature: 2016

January 3, 2017 | 2 comments


It’s a new year, and thus time to fill out the annual Life According to Literature survey (originally by Catherine Pope although she hasn’t posted one for this year so I’m linking back to 2015). The rules are easy: answer each statement using the title of a book read in 2016.

+ Describe yourself: The Woman in Blue (Elly Griffiths)

+ How do you feel: Ice Blue (Anne Stuart)

+ Describe where you currently live: Reykjavik Nights (Arnaldur Indriðason)

+ If you could go anywhere, where would you go: Nowhere But Here (Katie McGarry)

+ Your favourite form of transportation: Walking by Night (Kate Ellis)

+ Your best friend is: Maggie Smith (Michael Coveney)

+ You and your friends are: The Friday Night Knitting Club (Kate Jacobs)

+ What’s the weather like: Arctic Chill (Arnaldur Indriðason)

+ You fear: Deadly Decisions (Kathy Reichs)

+ What is the best advice you have to give: All You Need Is Love (Marie Force)

+ Thought for the day: Into Oblivion (Arnaldur Indriðason)

+ How I would like to die: Forever on the Mountain (James M Tabor)

+ My soul’s present condition: Raven Black (Ann Cleeves)

How would you describe your 2016, using only the titles of books you read during the year?
