Come up with your own 5 questions for your nominees
1. Be honest, do you judge a book by its cover?
Recent trips to Waterstones revealed to me that I am attracted to certain covers, but I read through the book description before I choose to read a book. So ultimately the themes of the book and genre are my deciding factors to whether I read the book and I judge the book on how easy and interesting it was to read and the emotions it evoked.
2. What draws your interest towards a potential read?
Firstly, who is making the recommendation, if there is one, I’m totally won over by other bibliophile recommendations, especially those from bloggers whom I regularly read. The description of the book and genre are key as I by habit avoid sci fi and fantasy reads, although never say never. The topic of the book is also important, for example I like reading books based during the Second World War, but am less interested in archaeological digs.
3. Do you have any books you regret reading? Why?
I can’t say I regret reading any books as they all have some sort of take home message. Even if I don’t enjoy a book, I have learnt something about my reading preferences and what doesn’t appeal to me. I feel awful if a book doesn’t live up to it’s initial promise.
4. What book gave you the most lasting impression?
There are so many! However, if we are talking about the longest lasting impression it has to be Charlotte’s Web, which was the first book to move me to tears and I was only 6 when I read it. I still cannot watch film adaptations of the book knowing what’s coming.
5. If your favourite book was made into a movie, what role would you star as?
In my mind I’m always the protagonist but in reality I’d be part of the scriptwriters team. However, to answer the question in the spirit it was intended, my favourite book of the year was Disclaimer by Renée Knight and I couldn’t see myself having any role other than the lead, Catherine Ravenscroft, I can totally see why she kept silent. Read the book to know what I mean.
