A-Z of books

Tuesday, June 7, 2016

Author You’ve Read the Most Books From.
Joanne Harris, or possibly Peter Robinson. I've read most of the DCI Banks books and always enjoy them. 

Best Sequel Ever?
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins - I think it's the best of the trilogy to the honest. 

Currently Reading...
Different Class by Joanne Harris. It's a sequel to her novel Gentlemen and Players which is one of my favourite novels ever. 

Drink of Choice While Reading.
Water, usually

E-reader or physical Book?
Both! I have loooots of physical books but I also like reading on my tablet and scrolling through loads of books to see what catches my eye! I rarely spend any money on Kindle books, I get lots for free!

Fictional character you probably would have actually dated as a teen.
Cath from Fangirl. The only thing that would have made that book better would have been if it was LGBTQ! I loved Cath and we could have written glorious fanfic together!

Glad you gave this book a chance...
Gosh, so many! I love reading reviews that make me take a chance on something I wouldn't normally. I like meeting authors and buying their books because they sound interesting.

Hidden gem book.
I don't feel like We Were Liars by E Lockhart got the recognition it deserved! It was fascinating and horrible and had such an unreliable narrator. 

Important moment in your reading life.
I suppose from being very small, I've always read by myself and found importance in it. I don't remember not being able to read! I loved Enid Blyton when I was little, and I loved Maeve Binchy as a teenager. I suppose reading The Handmaid's Tale for the first time was important because it made me realise that books could impact on my worldview.

Just finished...
Fire Colour One which I've just reviewed.

Kind of books you won’t read.
I'm not much into fantasy

Longest book you’ve read?
Not sure, Different Class that I'm reading at the moment is over 400 pages which for me is really long.

Major book hangover...
We Were Liars made me think about it all day.

Number of bookcases you own?
Our back bedroom is a library, and the books are mostly all mine, and there's over a thousand of them on two shelves, and two bookshelves - they're all doubled or tripled up because I have a lot of books.

One book you’ve read multiple times....
I've read my favourite novel - Five Quarters of the Orange by Joanne Harris - four times. I'm not a big re-reader - there's so many books to read!

Preferred place to read?

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels...
A book is a goft you can open again and again

Reading regret.
Just that I didn't pick up some stuff earlier

Series you started and need to finish...
The Raven Boys books. I read the first one and I really need to move on to The Dream Thieves

Three of your all-time favorite books?
Notes From An Exhibition by Patrick Gale
The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
The Seduction of Water by Carol Goodman

Unapologetic fangirl for....
I suppose Young Adult in general as I'm 32 now. I love it; the breadth of the genre is stunning.

Very excited for this release...
One by Sarah Crossan which is on its way to me

Worst bookish habit?
Buying YET MORE books even though I have ALL THE BOOKS

marks the spot: start on the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book
My books are downstairs and I'm not! I'll look on my Kindle app and tell you the 27th: Oh, it's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo which I've never read and thought I might like to

Your latest purchase...
Kill the Boyband arrived yesterday

Zzzzz-snatcher book (last book that kept you up way too late)....
The Dictionary of Mutual Understanding which I thoroughly thoroughly enjoyed!
