Questions set by Bibliomavens
What’s the worst book sin you’ve ever committed?
I don’t consider it a sin but I know that a lot of people do so I’m going to say breaking the spine on a book, I just find it so much more comfortable to hold and read.
What’s your favourite book accessory that you own?
My partner gave me a ‘Mum’ bookmark, and as it was the first thing I received after having my daughter that said Mum on it, this bookmark is full of sentimental value and definitely my favourite!
Do you think audiobooks count as reading?
This is a difficult question to answer! Up until recently I would have said absolutely not, however I have read so many great discussion posts on this subject that I must admit my opinion is starting to shift. I want to try out an audiobook and I definitely will at some point, until then I don’t feel qualified to answer.
If you’re a writer do you use writing prompts to get inspiration?
Not in the traditional sense no. I have searched for blog post ideas and suggestions and gained inspiration there though.
If you could rewrite the ending to any book, what would it be?
As beautiful (yet heart breaking) as the ending to A Walk to Remember by Nicolas Sparks is I would definitely rewrite it and have Jamie survive. Whilst there were very personal reasons for why Sparks chose to end the book how he did, I just love a happy ending.
Would you prefer to meet your favourite author or favourite character? Also, who are they and what would you do with them?
Definitely favourite author but I have to cheat a little (sorry!) and answer with two people because I have two favourite authors. So, firstly I would meet Roald Dahl, I’d ask him to take me to see his writing hut and once there I would ask him endless questions about writing, his inspirations, everything really. Roald Dahl fascinates me so I would have to spend the time learning as much as I could from him. Secondly, I would meet Jane Austen. As she wrote often about balls and society gatherings I would have to take her to a modern bar or club just for comparison because I would love to hear her thoughts on it all.
What are you currently reading?
At the moment I’m reading Les Misérables by Victor Hugo and Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, I’m really enjoying both!
