Woohoo it’s Wednesday so not only is it #HappyHumpDay but it’s also time to have a peek around another book bloggers bookshelves. Today I’m thrilled to welcome one Juliet who blogs over at www.bookliterati.com
If you haven’t checked out Juliet’s blog yet it’s a MUST, Now over to Juliet……….
How many bookcases do you have?
I have 9 Bookcases, soon to be 10; 2, soon to be three in the sitting room, 2 in the snug, and 5 in my bedroom. I also have some of my signed paperbacks on the windowsill in my reading room / conservatory.
Approximately how many books are on your book case?
There are over 500 books on my shelves to read, which is frightening.
What genre does your bookcase mainly comprise of?
I read most genres but the genre I have the most of is historical fiction, my favourite genre.
Which book on your bookcase are you desperate to read?
The one book I am desperate to read is The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton, I just haven’t found the time to fit it in with my review books.
Which books are you desperate to add to your bookcase over the next few months?
Over the next couple of months I am looking forward to adding Tidelands by Philippa Gregory, The Single Thread by Tracy Chevalier and Akin by Emma Donoghue.
If you could only keep one book from your bookcase, which one would you choose? And why?
It is hard to keep just one book but I think it would be my limited edition first edition signed copy of Possession by A.S Byatt. This is one of my favourite books of all time and there are only 70 of these special editions in circulation.
Last question if you could have one author come to your house to borrow a book who would it be and why?
An author to my house is a difficult one. I wish the Bronte Sisters were alive so I could meet them but now I think I would like Lucinda Riley to come around. I love her books and she always seems great fun, and could quiz her about the final book in her Seven Sisters series.
I am Juliet, I am married to David with one daughter, Briony, who is 26 and still lives at home, and four wonderful Cocker Spaniel. I. was an only child with a teacher for a mum who encouraged me to read from an early age. I can’t remember a time in my life when I didn’t have a book on the go, and I still always have a book with me. After was diagnosed with Spondylosis and couldn’t work any more reading books became a place to escape the pain and depression and still is today. I started blogging two years ago as something to focus my attention on during the days and I love sharing my thoughts on the books I have read. My reading companions are my four Cocker Spaniels, Bramble, Bailey, Bronte and Blaise who also ocassionally help with my blog accidentally.
