Over on Parajunkee's blog (absolutely fab blog designer and book review) when i happened onto her 'about page' which had these twenty questions, which i thought would be fun!
1. Last books i bought:
I went into Waterstones and went a bit 'crazy' after my Graduation (damn 3 for2 always gets me!):
Charlainne Harris - Omnibus True Blood
Jane Austen & Seth Grahame-Smith - P&P& Zombies
Poppy Adams - The Behaviour of Moths
John Connolly - The Gates
Audrey Niffenegger - Her Fearful Symmetry
Ken Follett - The Pillars of the Earth
Ray Bradbury - Something wicked this way comes (finally got this!)
2. Last Book I got in Post
Can't remember - its been soooo long since i had access to a credit card. sniff!
3. The first book i've read over and over
4. Children's books every child should read:
The Secret Garden
The little Princess
Anne of green gables series
Three investigators (Last three were purely due to reading my brothers books)
The Call of the Wild
5. Favourite Place to read
6. A book i bought just for cover:
a] Twilight - not the US version (the black one with apple) but actually the UK version (which everyone thinks is ugly). Totally drawn in my that cover, thus how i ended up with a first edition, as no one knew about these books in UK/Ireland in 2007
b] John Connolly's book of lost things, knew it was going to be brilliant but loved the cover! (similar to Gates and new Nocturnes one)
7. Scariest Book I ever read:
I don't read scary books to be honest but John Connolly's Black Angel really freaked me out! Oddly i read this series out of order because i ran out of books during holidays and started reading my mothers ones. Totally got hooked to the Charlie Parker series but the 'hollow men' scary the bejaysus out of me lol.
8. Most Romantic Book ever
Pride and Prejudice! Duh! ;)
9. Book that changed my life in some way
Twilight - purely because (and i don't want to sound pig headed - i don't mean it in that way) but the book (and the author) made me believe that i could write a book/s too. Usually when i read books i really like, i get the whole 'could never write like that'.
10. Books i've reread the most
Pride and Prejudice - know it off by heart at this point but its my 'go-to' book
11. Books i need cliff notes for
Shakespeare - how sad, i know!
12. Book you need dictionary for
Star of the sea by John O Connor
13. Book i like that no one else seems to
The Gargoyle (don't get me started!)
14. Books i don't like that everyone else seems to
A Great and Terrible Beauty - didn't get past the first three chapters. Everyone loves it. I don't. Enuf said lol.
15. Number of books i own (guess):
At least 300?
16. Number of books on TBR (that have not been acquired)
17. Must have reading accessory
Torch (for those night time read sessions)
18. Literary destination i want to go to:
Never thought of this before - maybe Jane Austens House?
19. Top three favourite authors
(can't say about the other two - i keep changing my mind)
20. The reason i started book bloggin
I started this blog due to MoonRats comments on platforming, and haven't looked back since. I started the book bundle book review blog cause i wanted to talk about books!
let me know in comments if you do 20 questions - would love to read your answers :)
