Stolen from Projectile Reviews:
- Name five of your favorite books:
- The Lord of the Rings by Tolkien. Despite not having reread it in a while I’d still count this as one of my favourites. It was my first fantasy read, unless you count fairy tales and myths, and it is responsible for my some of my favourite films too.
- I, Lucifer by Glen Duncan. I’ve only read this once, but loved it. I’ve put off rereading as I’m not sure if it was actually as good as I remember.
- Black Beauty by Anna Sewell. A childhood fav., this was the first book I ever bought, back when I was 6. And I have reread it so many times. I keep meaning to pick up a copy, but for some reason I haven’t.
- The Plague Dogs by Richard Adams. Other people may prefer his Watership Down, but this is my fav.
- The Farseer Trilogy by Robin Hobb. Yes, I know, it is a trilogy. And if I was being honest I’d say that all nine of the books set int he general Six Duchies ‘verse have equal rank.
- What was the last book you bought?
In The Ruins, book 6 in Kate Elliot’s Crown of Stars series. And I also got Beyond Black by Hilary Mantel at the same time.
- What was the last book you read:
I just finished The Case of the Missing Books by Ian Sansom
- Last five books that have been really meaningful to you (no particular order).
- The Dark is Rising Sequence by Susan Cooper
- Iron Council by China Mieville
- Shooting History by Jon Snow
- Until The Final Hour by Traudl Junge
- The Knife of Dreams by Robert Jordan , if only because I’ve been waiting so very long :)
