Book Meme :) (And an apology)

Ahh, I'm so behind on responding to people's comments. I'm so sorry, everyone! I'll get to them, I promise. 

But for now, another meme! I took this one from


1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicize those you intend to read (as in the book is bought and sitting on my shelf).
3) Underline the books you LOVE.
4) Star those you've started and have not and will not finish.


5) Strike-through those you've read and hated, and will never read again.

Looking at this list, it seems I haven't read very many classic books. >_> Oh well!
Also, I have some questions from the previous meme from mr_redrum! So...

1.what the most scene that you love from OP?
Oh man. I'm not sure I can choose which one I love best. Probably the Thriller Bark scene where Zoro is willing to sacrifice himself for the crew, and Sanji wanted to take his place. And then when everyone woke up, Sanji was so worried about Zoro! *Squee*

2.what's your dream/aspiration when you still a child? 
Wow, I had a whole bunch. It depended on what I was in to that week. I suppose the one that stuck with me until now is that I'd like to be a writer. Highly unlikely, but that's okay. I like writing for fun :)

3.why you choose the username that you using right now? 
Popkin comes from Stephen King's "The Dark Tower" series, where the main character - Roland - ends up in our world. He's riding a plane and he wants to order a sandwhich, but in Roland's world a sandwhich is called a popkin. I loved the way the word sounded, and at the time I was 16, so...Popkin16.

4.what kind of tv show(not the title) that you like to enjoy? 
I like supernatural tv shows, ones with ghosts and scary things (I love being scared).

5.beside lj,where do you most spending your free time?
Hmm. Fanfiction.net, perhaps? You can actually find some quality fanfics on there, you just have to know where to look (I raid my favorite author's favorites, lol). Either that or DeviantArt.com

So there we have it! I have this lingering feeling that someone else asked me some questions, but I've forgotten (sorry!) So if you know you asked me some, and I haven't answered, just let me know!
