My A-Z Of Books!

My A-Z of books…

I saw this on my lovely friend mychestnutreadingtree – Joanne‘s blog, and I have only gotten round to do it tonight! Whoopsie!

Author You’ve Read the Most Books From

Oh geez! Probably Carole Matthews, Ali McNamara and Jenny Colgan. I know that it’s three authors but they’re on par with the amount I’ve read of each!

Best Sequel Ever

Ali McNamara – The Notting Hill series. It’s amazing, celeb fest, and hilarious.

Currently Reading

How to find your (first) husband by Rosie Blake.

Drink of Choice While Reading

A cup of tea, definitely.

E-Reader or Physical Book
I have always vowed never to read a book on a Kindle because I thought it would take the magic and feel away from paperbacks. However, I was wrong. Plus, when you become a professional reader, it opens you up to more opportunities with a Kindle. Sooooo, both within reason.

Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated in High School

I have no idea actually, nobody springs to mind.

 Glad You Gave this Book a Chance

I honestly couldn’t name one because I’m glad I give every book a chance. I have only not finished a book once…

Hidden Gem Book

The Insignificance of you by Tammy Robinson. I had no idea about the book until I was offered to review it in TBC, and it’s become one of my favourite books.

Important Moment in Your Reading Life

Being able to talk to my favourite authors if I’m honest. Authors to be are A-list celebrities. I’m in awe whenever I am able to talk to one, or when their names come up in TBC on Facebook. Major Fangirl moments as Clare Macintosh found out! (Sorry!!!)

Just Finished

I wish I could remember you by L.J.Epps as I am on a blog tour for it in a week! You’ll find out more then!

Kind of Books You Won’t Read

Sci-fi/fantasy or really gorey ones. That said, I judge each book with their own merit so a book might fall into those categories yet I’ll still read it if I like the sound of it. Haha, makes no sense but oh well!

Longest Book You’ve Read

All books are short to me as I speed read haha.

Major Book Hangover

I have a couple:

When Stars Collide by Tammy Robinson – I am still speechless about that book. Such emotion.


Bella’s Christmas Bake Off by Sue Watson – despite the fact it was hilarious, it had a hidden message that still sits with me weeks after reading it.

Number of Bookcases You Own

I did own two, but my daughter has taken up a whole one as she has loads of books like her mumma. I have a small one on my desk, but then books are everywhere in my house so I guess you could say my house is a bookcase? Imagine that eh!

One Book You’ve Read Multiple Times

As childish as I may appear here, The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton, and Milly, Molly, Mandy by Joyce Lankester Brisley.

Preferred Place to Read

My bed because it’s the only place I can get semi comfortable with my legs.

Quote that Inspires You/Gives You all the Feels from a Book You’ve Read

I couldn’t pick because some emotive books that I have read are just full of amazing quotes.

Reading Regret

That I didn’t find an amazing author and their books sooner! It has happened on multiple occasions!

Series You Started and Need to Finish

Gingerbread Café books by Rebecca Raisin. Just need to read the third one!

Three of Your All-Time Favourite Books

Ahhhh I like too many! When you’re a book geek it’s hard to pick!

The House We Grew Up In by Lisa Jewell.
Take a look at me now by Miranda Dickinson.
My Husbands Secret by Lianne Moriarty.

Special mention to Carol Wyer and her Life Swap because it was bizarrely hilarious! I do have more favourites though!

Unapologetic Fangirl For

Ali McNamara. I was lucky enough to do an interview with her and I think the e-mail start off with ‘oh my god, I’m such a huge fan’. Haha, so professional!

Very Excited for this Release more than All Others

Sue Watson’s new book ‘We’ll Always Have Paris’ which is out in June. I’ve been seeing the cover for what seems like AAAAGGGGGEEEESSSSS and Sue knows I’m so excited about this one and cannot wait to help her!

Worst Bookish Habit

Buying too many! <— I’ll agree with that Jo!

X Marks the Spot: Start on the Top Left of Your Shelf and Pick the 27th Book

I’m not going downstairs for that! Although I think it’s a Diane Chamberlain one!

Your Latest Purchase

Sophie Kinsella – Can You Keep A Secret? Bought it today haha.

Zzzzz-Snatcher Book (Last Book that Kept You up Way too late)

The Letter by Kathryn Hughes. I had to finish it. Brilliant book if you haven’t read it

Well that’s my A-Z and I will be interested in seeing some of yours as well!
