The Lit Bitch

Who is the bitch behind the lit?

I am a Literary aggressive go-getter. I have a BA in English Literature and Writing with Film Concentration, minor in History.


Literary & meme questions asked and answered by yours truly!

What literary heroine do you identify with most?

Who is your biggest fictional crush?

If you could time travel to any place in any era what would it be?

  • Victorian London

If you could spend the day with any fictional character, who would it be and what would you do?

What’s the most intimidating book you’ve ever read?

  • Anna Karenina because it was so long and had a lot of foreign concepts and old fashion, tedious language, but I ended up loving it.

What book were you nervous to start and why?

  • The A Song of Ice and Fire series. They were so long and had a complicated story line, not to mention they were high fantasy. But again, loved them, probably the best series I’ve read.
  • I am also putting off reading the Lord of the Rings series for many of the same reasons but I am also worried that I won’t like it as well as ASOIAF.

If you were writing your memoirs, what would you call them?

  • Tears, Scars, and Lies

Who is your favorite protagonist of all time?

Who is your favorite villain or love-to-hate character?

  • This one is hard too….but again if I had to answer, Voldemort

Who is the most annoying character in any book you’ve ever read?

What is your favorite classic (British or American)

What is your least favorite classic or classic that you could just NOT get into no matter how hard you tried?

What’s the first book you remember really loving?

What is the longest book you have ever read?

Favorite poems or poet:

E-reader or hard copies?

  • Both! Love my iPad but then again nothing beats the feel of paper in your hand.

Best film adaption of a novel?

  • If we are looking at straight film adaptions, then I would say Gone with the Wind. If we are including TV adaptions, I would say Game of Thrones does a pretty awesome job as well.

Pick a super natural talent you would like to have.

  • Time travel or mind reading.

Favorite general quote:

Beyond myself somewhere I wait for my arrival (Octavio Paz)

Favorite literary quote from a book: 

I wish you to know that you have been the last dream of my soul

  1. You know, I follow your blog and don’t always get to comment but absolutely loved your interview with Deborah Harkness, kept meaning to write, but didn’t. Anyway, we seem to have so much in common. I would love to go back to Victorian times.., my favorite book of all time is Pride and Prejudice, I too love all things Beatrix Potter and that other Potter, Harry. Which means I think J.K. Rowling is pretty fantastic. I would be studying transfiguration at Hogwarts in a heartbeat 🙂
    I also love all things Diana Gabaldon and cannot wait for book 8 to come out in the fall. I do love your interviews. It is something I often dream of doing. Lovely blog.

    Would you be so kind as to suggest some books on Russia, Russian history, St. Petersburg. I read your review of Midnight in St. Petersburg and opted against that choice based on your review. You write in the review, however, that you’ve read several books on the subject. Can you please suggest some others?

    • Yes, I absolutely LOVED The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simmons. It is set in WWII Russia and is absolutely fantastic. There is always Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy…..a classic even if it’s a little on the longish side! Happy reading!
