A Cocktail & Conversation

Every other(-ish) Thursday here at the Broke & The Bookish is  A Cocktail & Conversation time. One of the TBTB members will pose a question to 2-3 of the other members of TB&TB crew about books, life, music, etc and then they'll answer and we can converse about it. So grab a cocktail & cozy up for some conversation. It's 5 o'clock somewhere, friends.

Lori asks:  What is one book you wish you could read again for the first time?  And why?

Julia's Answer: Wow that is quite the hard question. I immediately jump to the Harry Potter series, but I don't know if I want that to be my answer, because a lot of the Harry Potter love I has came from when I read it and the fandom around that time. I am actually going to say Angels and Demons. It is classified as my favorite book (tied with Time Travelers Wife) right now. Dan Brown has an interesting quirk where you could interpret his books as being very similar to one another. But Angels and Demons was my first of his, so the thrill and excitement were new to me. It was such a fun mystery! Now when I reread it, I am not as wowed as the first time, so I want that "WHAT? OMG I didn't see that coming at all!!" moment again :)

Jana's Answer: I'm with Julia. This is a hard question! I think I would choose Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard. This book is absolutely amazing, and I have recommended it to every person I know. It inspired me to go on this epic 6-week trip, and it inspired me to think about my life differently. I'd love to have such epiphanies all over again, AND have it inspire ANOTHER amazing trip!

What about you all?

PS--Come back later today for a Special Announcement!


  1. There are so many books I wish I could read again for the first time. I think Stephen King's Dark Tower series tops my list though. It's more than one book, I know, but it would be a great story as a whole to experience again for the first time.

  2. Wanderlove! Great pick! Love that book.

  3. I thought of the Harry Potter books too, although I have just started re-reading those (again!) and even though it's still exciting to delve back into that world, I think I would choose Into The Wild - it was a very powerful read the first time around, and one that has stuck with me. It'd be nice to be able to capture that same feeling again.

  4. I'd choose Pushing the Limits I think
