Questions and Answers –
1 What are you top 3 book pet peeves?
- A book that sounds great from the description and had the potential to be great but is disappointing. Maybe that’s just me but there are some books which sound great from the descripton but I end up find it boring.
- Grammar and spelling errors in books, even if it’s only the odd error. I’m such a grammar nazi.
- Introductions that are too lengthy – they make it difficult for me to get into the book!
2 Describe your favourite reading spot.
My favourite reading spot is in my bed and I loved reading at night time.
3 Tell us three book confessions.
- Classic books aren’t really my thing and I find it difficult to get into them – but The Great Gatsby is one of my favourite books of all time yet it’s a classic.
- Although I love reading, sometimes I’ll go weeks without reading simply because I get caught up in life and don’t prioritise it enough.
- I hate folding the corners on books to mark the page I’m up to. I still want my books to look nice once I’ve finished reading them for my bookshelf!
4 When was the last time you cried during a book?
I honestly can’t remember the last time I cried during a book.
5 How many books are on your bedside table?
Currently I have 1 on my bedside table which is the book I’m currently reading – Into The Water by Paula Hawkins.
6 What’s your favourite snack to eat while you’re reading?
If I’m being honest I don’t really tend to eat snacks if I’m reading because I usually read at night time. But, if I am snacking then I don’t really take notice to be honest.
7 Name three books you would recommend to anyone?
- The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. A classic book set in America in the 1920’s – I couldn’t recommend it enough. I’m not a big fan of classics but I love this one.
- Faceless by Alyssa Sheinmel – I loved this YA book and the themes in it. Check out my review on here.
- The Ice Twins by S. K. Treymayne. This book is a great psychological thriller and I recommend it to anybody that enjoys reading this genre. I can’t wait to read S. K. Treymayne’s The Fire Child either – I have high expectations!
8 Show us a picture of your favourite book on your bookshelf?
My favourite book that I have probably has to be The Ice Twins. Over the past couple of years I’ve been really getting into thrillers (specifically psychological thrillers) and this one definitely has to be my favourite.
9 Describe how much books mean to you in just three words.
Escaping my reality. Books truly are an escape from reality and a way to delve into another person’s life and situation whilst escaping your own life for a short while.
10 What is your biggest reading secret?
When I was younger I used to read the last page of books that I would be currently reading and spoil it for myself. I have no idea why I did that but I don’t do that anymore!
