My Answers –
1 What are you reading at the moment?
I’ve just finished Fredrik Backman’s book My Grandmother sends her Regards and Apologies and my next read will be a book called Girl A about the Rotherham Child Sexual Abuse Scandal written by one of the victims.
2 Who is your favourite movie / book / TV character of all time?
Tony Soprano was great!
3 What do you do in your spare time?
Apart from reading and blogging… I have 2 sons so they keep me busy. I also try to run several times a week.
4 If you could visit anywhere in the universe, where would it be?
There are so many places I want to visit on Earth, but high on my list is to travel more in America, see Orcas / whale watching – Canada or Norway, hot winter sun in glitzy Dubai… the list goes on!
5 Favourite food?
Oh my! Feeling a bit rubbish at this due to my inability to provide one answer, so for this I am going to say Chocolate, but it is very much mood dependent!!!
6 Favourite book you’ve read this year?
My favourite book I’ve read this year is A Little Life by Hanya Yanhingara, I read this book in January and it has stayed with me.
7 What writer would you like to meet living or dead?
I would like to meet J K Rowling because she got a generation of children and young people reading and engaging with books which is such a positive thing. Like TV shows that everyone talk about the Harry Potter books everyone was reading and waiting for the next instalment and with the importance of reading and reading being on the decline I would like to meet her and thank her!
8 Favourite childhood movie?
Tricky one… I think maybe ET, I still love to watch it (and cry) when it comes on now.
9 What was the last TV show you binge watched?
Probably Line of Duty which is brilliant. Major TV show binges include 24 and The Sopranos, also Black List for a while and The Following.
10 Favourite Genre to read or (if you are a writer) to write?
Hard to narrow it down to one, but contemporary fiction and crime / psychological thrillers I think.
11 Favourite author?
Again hard to narrow it down, I enjoy Robert Galbraith ( J K Rowling) and will definitely be reading the next Cormoran Strike novel, also Pierre Lemaitre for great crime fiction is a must read for me, as are Lianne Moriarty and Marion Keyes.
