Three things about myself…
- I studied dance, drama and performing arts from the age of 4 up until about the time I was 23. I absolutely loved dancing but I quickly realised that I loved it as a hobby rather than a career and chose a different path.
- I currently drive an average of 700 miles per week. Boring fact, but it’s such a huge time eater for me. I spend more time in my car than I do in my living room which is a huge blow. About 500 miles are associated to work and the remaining are miles I travel to see my beloved who lives in Wales. Aside from my private little game of “beat the sat nav arrival time” it does mean I get a whole lot of audio book and podcast listening time which I very much enjoy!
- I’m soon to be an immigrant. I may be exaggerating a teeny tiny bit, but technically I will be moving country. I currently live in England but plan to move to Wales in the near future. My partner is a born and bred Valleys boy and I’ll be joining him and his 2 gorgeous children in what he calls “God’s country”. The. grand future plan is to buy a gorgeous remote property to renovate so I can create perfect reading nooks and have lots and lots of outdoor space!
Questions I was asked…
What was the last book you DNF?
The last book I shelved was The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton. I don’t know if this technically counts as a DNF as I didn’t shelve because I wasn’t enjoying it, I shelved because it just wasn’t the right time for this book and I. I will pick it up again, but probably in the winter when I can snuggle on the sofa under a blanket.
Paperback, E-book or Audiobook, and why?
GOOD question. I have to be a cop out and say all. I love audiobooks but only because I drive so much. I don’t listen to them anywhere but in the car, so if I ever end up travelling less, audiobooks will probably end for me. I often go back and forth between paperbacks/hardbacks and e-books. I like the convenience of e-books and they satisfy my impatience, however after I while I miss the feel of a real book and the page turning.
What are three things in the world you can’t live without?
My man, my music and a good read!
Who is your favourite fictional character?
Wow. That’s a difficult question and I honestly don’t think I have an answer. Maybe I’m fickle. I fall in love with so many characters in book, however I think my head is turned as soon as I find the next one.
What is the first book you remember reading in your childhood?
I’m not sure I remember one book in particular, but I do remember devouring the whole Point Romance series, shortly followed by Point Horror. I loved them so much. Once I had read them all once, I went through them all again, but got the audio cassette tape too. I’d sit and listen on my Sony Walkman whilst following along with the book hahahaha.
I choose to nominate;
