A book you started but never finished but want to finish. What stopped you from continuing to read it?
The Shining! I never got around to finishing it because I was taking huge breaks between reading parts of it and all the scariness was lost on me! I’m going to attempt to read it this year.
What elements attract you to a book, which makes you need to read it?
Well the main aspect is clearly the synopsis, but I also always pay attention to the cover art. If it’s shitty looking, I tend to skip over it when finding a new book to buy. I also take into consideration the author, if I’ve already read something of theirs and have liked it, I’m more than likely to pick up their new book.
Which books do you prefer, e-copy or hard copy?
Hard copy, even though they’re more difficult to travel with. I’m really into e-books though, thanks to Netgalley!
What book are you currently reading or going to read?
I’m currently reading Siren by Annemarie Neary and The Mercy of the Tide by Keith Rosson.
Is it fair to judge a book by its film?
Nope! Films can’t create imagery anywhere near as well as in books. I will always give the novel a go, unless I don’t like the premise ofc!
What book did you badly judge by its cover and end up loving?
The cover for Savage Reckoning by C. Hoyt Caldwell is so cheesy but I ended up really liking this dark and witty novel!
Which book character have you felt the most kin with and able to relate with?
I don’t know what to answer this question with. I don’t think I’ve come across a character I really relate to, yet.
Chaoticeverything’s question for me:
What YA book do you wish they’d accurately make into a movie?
I don’t read anything YA! But if I had to pick a book to create into an accurate movie it would be Nutshell by Ian McEwan… because imagine that!
My 50 word story:
It was hot, standing where he was, in between the layers of knitted jumpers and knee length dresses. Beads of sweat dotted his forehead and his underarms were beginning to get sticky, but he didn’t mind how uncomfortable he felt. It was all worth it. She’d be coming home soon.
(Lol so cliche, I’m not a writer guys, I’m a reader!)
My question to you:
What one book do you think should be on all schools English curriculum?
