Onturningpages Questions and my Answers:
1-What do you enjoy most about blogging?
Being part of the book blogging community and being able to write about and review the books I read as no-one I know in real life shares my love of reading.
2-What is your biggest pet peeve when it comes to books?
Hhhmm, creased book spines, ggrrr, come on people show the book some love and don’t crease the spine!
3-What genre of books can you never tire of reading?
Fantasy, particularly the Grimdark subgenre.
4-Have you read any book that you thought you may not like but ended up liking it?
Yes, a few, most recently Ten Days by Gillian Slovo, it’s a political thriller and not my usual type of read at all but I really enjoyed it.
5-Which book to movie adaptation do you like the most?
The Green Mile by Stephen King, awesome movie and an amazing book, it truly is outstanding in both formats.
6-If you could rewrite the ending of a book, how would you end it?
Under the Dome by Stephen King book, a quality read with a shockingly bad ending that I absolutely hated.
If I had the chance to rewrite the ending I’d let everyone die by keeping the dome up, your probably all screaming at me the horror and you vile evil person! But I really feel it would have been a far better ending as while bittersweet it would also have had an emotional pull and message behind it about the futility of hope and that sometimes you can’t overcome obstacles in life.
7-Have you bought books based on how the cover looks?
Yes, if a cover stands out while your looking at books in a shop obviously it’s saying buy me now!
- The Paper Dragon.
- The Bibliophile Blogs.
- Lynn’s books.
- If you could make any book into a film/TV series, which book would you choose?
- What’s your preferred reading format, book or e-reader?
- The book you were most looking forward to but ended up being really disappointed with?
