Author you’ve read the most books from:Author You've Read Most Books By:
According to Goodreads I've read 53 books by Stephen King! In second place is Sir Terry Pratchett (I've read 39 books) and in third place, J D Robb (37 books - the In Death series!)
Best Sequel Ever:
A Clash of Kings by George R R Martin, I chose Clash of Kings but it could be any of the ASoIaF books because in my opinion they just keep on getting better!
Innocent Darkness by Suzanne Lazear
Drink of Choice While Reading:
E-reader or Physical Book?
Physical book! Even though I now have a Kindle Fire I only use it to watch movies, use Twitter & Facebook and read e-ARC's, the few books I actually bought for Kindle I have since bought a paper copy!
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Dated In School:
Gilbert Blythe from the Anne books, I always wanted my own Gilbert Blythe *sigh*
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
Golden by Jessi Kirby, not my usual sort of read but I loved it!
Hidden Gem Book:
Shiloh by Helena Sorensen, and I'm not just saying that because I reviewed it a couple of weeks ago, I genuinely loved it and thought it was great :)
Important Moment In Your Reading Life:
The first time my mum took me to the library and I worked out that I could read every book in there, for free, if I wanted to!
The Nymph King by Gena Showalter
Kinds Of Books You Won't Read:
I'm pretty good about reading just about anything but I tend to not read Erotica at all and I only seem to read Romance novels (of the non-slushy type) when I need a reading mojo kick-start.
Longest Book You've Read:
Goodreads says it is The Stand, coming in at a whopping 1415 pages!
Major Book Hangover Because Of:
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes and First Last Kiss by Ali Harris, these both need to come with government tissue warnings! Even now I still get sad thinking about these two books.
Number Of Bookcases You Own:
11. And I need more as I have floor stacks... And boxes of books in storage...
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte - there is something about this book that makes me read it time and again!
Preferred Place To Read:
Anywhere that's comfortable! Normally stretched out on the sofa or in bed...
Quotes That Inspire You/Gives You All The Feels:
I have two, both from Wuthering Heights - I know, sad...
“He's more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”
“If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger.”
I don't think I have any, not serious ones anyway. Might come back to this one!
Series You Started And Need To Finish:
Far too many to mention! I have a nasty habit of starting a series, buying all the books as they come out and then never reading them...
Three Of Your All-Time Favorite Books:
|The Little Country - Charles de Lint|
|Dark Cathedral - Freda Warrington|
|Gormenghast Trilogy - Mervyn Peake|
Unapologetic Fangirl For:
Joe Hill, Charles de Lint, Terry Pratchett, Kate Forsyth, Juliet Marillier and Stephen King - I've met two of these authors, Joe Hill & Terry Pratchett but the likelihood of ever getting to meet Stephen King or Charles de Lint? Negligible... Besides, I'd probably do something ridiculous like pass out! All Kate and Juliet need to do is come and live in the UK for a while, at least long enough for me to meet them anyway!
Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
Cheating a bit & picking two books but I cannot wait for Raising Steam and The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland And Cut The Moon In Two
Worst Bookish Habits:
I am terribly precious about my books! I very rarely lend them out and if I do I expect them to come back in the same condition they left the house. Four people borrow books from me at the moment, only one of them gives books back in the same condition! I insist people use bookmarks, I have been known to give them to strangers who I've noticed are about to fold over a page corner!
