My YA Life in Book Titles

Another one of those Friday Fun posts by the Lovely Jamie of The Perpetual Page-Turner. This one I found out through AnnaReads whose blog I just came across today! I can’t believe I wasn’t aware that such a pretty book blog exists. Excuse me while I mentally berate myself for missing out. Ugh, seriously. Her blog is A+ and you should go visit.

Anyway, it’s time to take a break from the back-breaking and truly exhausting (???) task of reviewing books and plunge into another nostalgia-inducing book survey! Can’t wait to start! *rubs hands eagerly with hungry look on face*

YOU:

How would you describe your 16-year-old self? Geek Girl (I think this applies to my 20 year old self as well but moreso to 16 year old me. I even had nerd glasses)
When you looked into the mirror what did you see? Girl of Nightmares (hahaha!)
Your 16-your-old self’s outlook on life/motto: He’s So Not Worth It (Basically I kept telling myself this but at the same time I wasn’t following my own advice)
How do you think people would describe your personality? Adorkable (My excessive reading and book-quoting is a personality quirk they treated with equal parts contempt and endearment)
Describe an insecurity in high school: DUFF (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) (I always felt like I was the ugliest person in the group)
Describe your worst trait as a teen: Hopeless (I was hopelessly LAZY)
Describe the contents of your diary/journal: Private
Your biggest fear: Not A Drop To Drink (Actually, any kind of shortage.)

You were always concerned about: The Symptoms of my Insanity (This is still a current issue)
You Thought Your Life Was: Wicked Lovely (As it turns out I was wrong)

LOVE LIFE:

How would you sum up your high school love life? Something, Maybe (It never got there)
Describe your most serious boyfriend from high school? It’s Kind of a Funny Story (Basically non-existent)

Your philosophy on dating/love: Leap of Faith (You’re never going anywhere if you’re too afraid to try)

Your relationship with academics: Matched (Academics and I were compatible for the most part)
Your weekends were: Prized (Longer Sleep Hours YESSSSS)
If your high school life as a movie, it would be called: The Hunger Games (We’d be like tributes trying to kill each other and of course I would be the SOLE victor.)
A class you wish high school would have offered: Quidditch Through The Ages (Don’t look at me like that)
Your senior year was: Blood Red Road (Sort of literally but that’s another story for another time. But it was really difficult)

Biggest Lesson You Learned In High School: Dear Life, You Suck (Quite honestly the end of my naivete. RIP)
One Thing You WISHED You Had Learned: Apathy and Other Small Victories (If only I knew how to ‘turn it all off’ I wouldn’t have been such.a.mess)

The End!

Well that was a lot of fun! I hope you enjoyed reading about my YA version, even if she is outdated. Haha! I can’t believe the amount of time I spent in Goodreads for this survey, but it was very worth it because I came across titles that sounded interesting and other books that I almost forgot about! They are now safely stowed in my To-Read list. See? This works as a double purpose. Stroll along memory lane and discover good books along the way. You should definitely try this one out!

Enjoy! ♥
