I was out hunting for some book blogger tags and I came accross this one on The Book Loving Nut’s page which I fancied doing.
These are the questions:
1. Which book, most recently, did you not finish?
‘The Damage’ by Caitlin Wahrer. I was disappointed that I didn’t like it too as so many people have been raving about it! I’ve stuck it on my ‘try again another time’ shelf. This was I can try it again when I’m in a different headspace and see if I get on better with it. I do this with all the books I DNF.
2. Which book is your guilty pleasure?
Some of the books I read when I was younger; all of Roald Dahl and Jacqueline Wilson’s books! The Narnia books would also be up there! I wouldn’t consider them guilty pleasures though as there is nothing wrong with enjoying nostalgia!!
3. Which book do you love to hate?
I don’t think I really hate any books (as below) so this is a tricky one to answer!!!
4. Which book would you throw into the sea?
Hmmmm. None, I don’t think any books deserve to die that way, even if I didn’t enjoy it! Cop out answer, I know! But those who know me know I’m a serial book hoarder, even books I’ve read and hated, I’ve kept for some reason.
5. Which book have you read the most?
Without a doubt it would have to be my childhood favourite ‘Matilda’ by Roald Dahl. I must have read it into the hundreds of times. One of the few books I’ve actually re-read, ever!
6. Which book would you hate to receive as a present?
Anything that I don’t think I’ll enjoy – I’m always happy to receive books but If I know that I’m not going to enjoy it because of it’s genre like high fantasy for example, I struggle to be excited and I worry people can see through it.
7. Which book could you not live without?
Errr, I’m going to go with the same as above, the childhood favourite of mine that I must have read into the hundreds of times; ‘Matilda’ by Roald Dahl…Purely because I don’t typically re-read books so I wouldn’t know what else to pick.
8. Which book made you the angriest?
Hmmm, not that many books make me angry as I typically pick books I think I’m going to enjoy and if they let me down I am disappointed not angry… – ‘Together’ by Julie Cohen, however, did leave me very annoyed. You’ll have to read it to know why.
9. Which book made you cry the most?
Ever? Jesus… what a question! SO many books have made me cry! It has to be ‘A Little Life’ by Hanga Yanagihara, ‘PS I Love You’ by Cecelia Ahern or ‘The Sight of You’ by Holly Miller.
10. Which book cover do you hate the most?
This answer is going to be a little bit of a cop out as I’m going to say all books with movie covers rather than the original covers. I really really really don’t like them, any of them.
