My Life in Books: A meme

Posted: September 3, 2011 in memes

I spotted this meme at Margot’s Confessions of  a Mystery Novelist [via Pop Culture Nerd].  

 My Life as a Book  is a meme in which players complete sentences about themselves with titles of books.  Some memes are just too demanding on the brain box, but I had a look at this one, and decided it could be completed with just books I had read this year. So here goes: 

One time at band/summer camp, I: (went) Missing [Karin Alvtegen]

Weekends at my house are: The Tin Roof Blowdown [James Lee Burke]

My neighbour is: The Troubled Man [Henning Mankell]

My boss is:  The Abominable Man [Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo]

My ex was: All Yours [Claudia Pineiro]

My superhero secret identity is:  The Leopard [Jo Nesbo]

You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry because:  No One Loves a Policeman [Guillermo Orsi]

I’d win a gold medal in:  Bandit Love [Massimo Carlotto]

I’d pay good money for: A Lily of the Field [John Lawton]

If I were president, I would: (be in) An Uncertain Place [Fred Vargas]

When I don’t have good books, I: (am in a) Frozen Moment [Camilla Ceder]

Loud talkers at the movies should be: (taken to) A Beautiful Place to Die [Malla Nunn]

Margot’s meme included photos of herself, so not to be out done, this one was taken in one of my better moods. I can imagine this photo being dropped by the RAF over Berlin, and Grand Admiral Doenitz being called in to explain why the U-Boat campaign had so obviously failed to cut off Britain’s food supply.
