1. What are your top three book hates?
- I hate borrowing books off people who don't want me to bend the spines - it scares me - and I spend the entire time reading worried that I'll accidentally crack it open.
- Not being able to lend people books I have bought on Kindle. I love lending books out to other people once I've enjoyed them and although I know you can do this (somehow!) on Kindle its not the same as actually giving someone a book.
- I don't like reading to a deadline. I know this makes me a really bad reviewer for publishers/authors but I like to decide what I want to read next, and read it in my own time. As soon as I HAVE to read a certain book by a certain time it takes all the fun away for me.
2. Describe your perfect reading spot...
Anywhere at home where I can cuddle up under a blanket with one of my cats curled up on my knee.
3. Tell us three book confessions...
- I love breaking the spine of a new book.
- I won't buy anything on Kindle that costs more than a couple of pounds, I'd rather buy an 'actual' book.
- I'm obsessed with updating my reading progress on Goodreads.
4. When was the last time you cried at a book?
When I sobbed my heart out to 'Love Anthony' by Lisa Genova.
5. How many books are on your bedside table?
When I'm reading a book I carry it with me everywhere, it lives in my handbag by day and then comes to sit next to me by my bed at night as I'll often read before I go to sleep.
My Kindle often sit by my bed too.
6. What's your favourite snack whilst you're reading?
Chocolate. Chocolate biscuits or chocolate. Did I mention chocolate?
7. Name three books you'd recommend to everyone...
With Love At Christmas by Carole Matthews.
Before I Go To Sleep by S. J. Watson.
Still Alice by Lisa Genova.
8. Show us a picture of your favourite shelf on your bookcase...
9. Write how much books mean to you in just 3 words...
Page turning obsession.
10. What is your biggest reading secret?
I can't stand classics, I know I should love them but I just can't get into the language so it takes me too long to read them which means I get bored. Sorry Jane Austen.
