Tagged for Another Meme

Thank you, Valentina, for tagging me! And thank you, Eva, for coming up with such a fun meme!

The book that’s been on your shelves the longest:
The Children's Hour set of books, which my mother passed along to me when I was very small. They're a little tattered, because she owned them when she was a kid, but they're very special to me.

A book that reminds you of something specific in your life (a person, a place, a time, etc.):
Classic Poems to Read Aloud, which reminds me of my grandfather. It was the last thing he gave me before he died. This book is also extremely special.

A book you acquired in some interesting way (gift, serendipity in a used bookstore, prize, etc.):

Jean, who happens to be my "cousin", went to the National Book Festival and got to meet Neil Gaiman. Instead of getting a signed book for herself, she bought Coraline and had him sign it for me! Wasn't that sooooooo nice?

The most recent addition to your shelves:

Gothic Lolita
by Dakota Lane. I've been wanting that book for quite some time now, and I was excited when I finally had enough money to buy it.

A book that’s been with you to the most places:
I can't really answer that one. I don't bring my favorite books on vacation, I just bring several that I want to read.

A bonus book that you want to talk about but doesn’t fit into the other questions:

The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman. It is my all-time favorite book! It's about a girl, Lyra Belacqua, who lives in an alternate universe similar to ours, but here everyone is accompanied by a magical creature called a daemon, who is like your soul. When she hears about a wicked experiment station in the north, called Bolvangar, where mysterious and unpleasant things are happening to children and their daemons, Lyra goes on a quest to save them. I recently got the movie, and I can't wait to watch it again! It's also time for a re-read!

Now, as for tagging people:
