Ready, get set….. GO!
I’m going to cheat a little here… it’s not the last book that really surprised me but the first book that did. Studying English at school meant that we often had to read books that weren’t my personal taste and then analyse it to death before writing about one million and one hundred essays to compare and contrast some bloody part of it.
When I studied English in college we were given ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ by Margaret Atwood and I thought, “here we go again.”
And I just… yeah. It stuck and it stayed and I think I gushed like a fool to my teacher about much I loved it.
More recently I was surprised with how much I hated Caraval but I’ve accepted that my levels of vitriol will just carry me through life.
My gal Jo March for sure. We would read books and swap recommendations and then I would let her read what I’ve written for honest and constructive critique. At some point I’m sure we’ll get snippy with each other but we’ll get over it because we just fangirl too much over the same stuff.
Then, when I’m needing a bit more vodka and a little less serious conversation I’d chat away to Bridget Jones and discuss the merits of her high-hold Spanx pants versus mine. I’ll bring the Daiquiri mix and she’ll make Espresso Martini’s and we’ll pass out on her sofa and wake up in the morning with empty cartons of Ben & Jerry’s surrounding us.
And then, when I’m feeling a bit homesick and in need of some home cooked food and a giant, non fitting jumper I’d head over to Ron Weasley’s house and settle in among the family for a good (magical) Sunday Roast!
In an alternate world someplace there is a version of me that has a collection of published standalone novels, two trilogies and a series which is nearing completion. My fans can’t wait to know what’s going to happen to the main character and my panel at Comic Con to discuss the next installment is already sold out.
In another alternate world someplace I own a cat sanctuary and talk to all the cats.
In yet another alternate world I am a literal witch and all the cats talk back.
I am being incredibly rubbish and am leaving this one open ended (again!) only because Monday is the day where my brain re-starts itself and so I struggle with choosing anything other than dinner!
Here are my three questions open for the taking!
- The egg in front of you is beginning to crack. What does that egg look like? What the heck is hatching out?!
- Your favourite book needs to be accompanied by a snack and a beverage that represents the book or how that book makes you feel – what is that snack and beverage?
- If you could change the ending to the story of one character whose ending would you change? Why? What would you change for them?
I would love to know anyone’s answers if they are willing!
