I’ve seen numerous book bloggers use My A-Z Books tag, so I figured I’d take part as well!
Author you’ve read the most books from:
It’s got to be Kimberley chambers I’ve read every book she’s written so if my memory serves me correct that’s 12 books, Peter James is a close second I’ve read everyone of the Dead series featuring Roy Grace so that’s 11 books plus I have his new one Love You Dead to read.
Best Sequel Ever:
Hmmm this is a difficult one but it’s got to be Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator by Roald Dahl, I loved Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, and I use to read both books to my son when he was growing up.
The Safe Word by Karen Long, as I’m on the blog tour for it in June
Drink of choice while reading:
More often than not coffee and my husband Andy makes a mean caramel sticky toffee coffee which I’m addicted to, who needs Starbucks?, or if I’m pushing the boat out I might have a Pepsi Max….I’m so rock and roll 😂
E-reader or physical book:
I love both an E-reader is convenient for carrying around and it’s great to get ARCs delivered to your device straightaway, but you can’t beat the smell and feel of a real book (and no I don’t crack the spines!)
Fictional character you probably would have actually dated in high school:
I dated my husband in high school, and we’re still together 36 years later, so I wouldn’t have wanted to date anyone else 💞💕💞💕
Glad you gave this book a chance:
Hot House Flower by Lucinda Riley, as I usually crime/psychological thrillers this book was right out of my comfort zone but I loved it and when I finished it I bought all her books. I love how her books are written and they go between the past and present day, and she weaves such an intricate plot
Hidden Gem book:
Hmmm this is a hard one I would probably say Go Ask Alice by Anon, I read it at school (OMG30 years + ago), it’s about a young girl who starts taking drugs and it’s very sad and has always stuck with me
Important moment in your reading life:
It has to be when I started blogging, when I started I expected a few people to look at my reviews, but it has gone from strength to strength, and I’m still amazed when publishers/authors get in touch with me, asking me if I would like to review their book. I’ve also come across lots of fellow book bloggers who are a very friendly bunch and feel like friends.
Chosen Child by Linda Huber, which I really enjoyed.
Kind of book you won’t read
I’m not a fan of erotica although I did read 50 Shades, and then wondered what all the fuss was about.
Longest book you’ve ever read:
The Storm Sister by Lucinda Riley at 702, but I get so wrapped up in her books it seems much less
Major book hangover:
The Twighlight series by Stephenie Meyer, I read the books back to back and felt bereft when I finished them
Number of bookcases you own:
NONE… Yes you read that right, at the moment my books are all over the place, in cupboards, the spare bedroom, on my coffee table, but I’m hoping to rectify that soon and get a bookcase, so I can have all my books in one place.
One book you’ve read multiple times:
I don’t reread books as there are so many books I want to read, and there’s not enough time to read them, let alone go back and read a book I’ve read
Preferred place to read:
In my lounge sat in my recliner, I can’t read in bed as I can never get comfy
Quote that inspired you/ Gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.”
― George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons
Like a lot of book bloggers and readers it’s got to be spending time reading books that I didn’t enjoy when I could have been reading a book I loved would be a reading regret, and also not having enough time to read the books I want to read.
Series you started and need to finish:
I really can’t think of a series I need to finish, as if I love a book enough to read a series then I tend to binge read the whole series
Three of your all time favourite books:
This is a hard question! I’ve loved so many books that it’s impossible to choose three so I’m afraid I’ll have to skip this question!
Unapologetic fangirl for:
Ohhhh another hard one but I would have to say Kimberley Chambers I absolutely love her books, she has such a unique way of writing that makes her characters come to life, her books are very entertaining and I always learn a few new swear words from them 😂😂
Very excited for this release more than all others:
I’m a huge fan of James Carol and the thrillers featuring former FBI profiler Jefferson Winter, he’s written a standalone thriller under the pseudonym JS Carol for one of my favourite publishers Bookouture . The first of these is Tick Tick Boom, which is being published in July 2016, so I’m really looking forward to reading it
Worst bookish habit:
Spending to much time reading, when I should be doing something else
