Meme: Book Title Communication

WrittenWyrdd has apparently started up a new book meme. Since I haven't done a meme in a while, I thought I'd do this one (it looked silly and fun). If you'd like to join in, feel free to leave a comment with a link to your version.

The challenge:
Complete the following sentences with book titles that you have read this year. Put the author of the book in parenthesis.
Simple enough, right?

I am: The Palm-wine Drinkard (Amos Tutuola)
I will never be: Harbinger (Jack Skillingstead)
I fear: The Left Hand of God (Paul Hoffman)
My best friend is: Ray in Reverse (Daniel Wallace)
What’s the weather like? This World We Live In... (Susan Beth Pfeffer)
Best Advice: Things Fall Apart (Chinua Achebe)
I’ve never been to: The City of Saints and Madmen (Jeff VanderMeer)
Favorite form of transport: Flight (Kazu Kibuishi)
I’ll never fit in at: In the Castle in My Skin (George Lamming)
How I’d like to die: An Idle King (J. W. Benford)
You and your friends are: The Reapers Are the Angels (Alden Bell)
Thought for the day: Why Darwin Matters (Michael Shermer)
Your soul’s present condition: Irreligion (John Allen Paulos)

A few of those don't fit so well, but I did my best. Any thoughts?

Update (the following are folks who have added their own versions to their blogs)

  1. My version is now up here. Thanks for the find.

  2. Thanks for partaking. We should make this an annual list. It'd be interesting to see how things change each year, no?

  3. I could definitely see doing it every year. I doubt it would get repetitive unlike the Reading Habits one that keeps coming around. Plus a new line could be added once in a while.

  4. Oh, absolutely. It would be fresh and new every time, since it would be based on what you were able to read in that year (unless you re-read a lot of books).
