- One book that changed your life
Hmmm. I don’t know if any one book has changed my life. But every book I read probably changes it a little. After all reading a book is like looking at life from someone else’s perspective, and, while you not always agree with it, it does have an impact. So, final answer, going orange, every book.
- One book that youâ€™ve read more than once.
There are loads. But I’ll give you the first book I ever bought and probably the first book I ever reread. Black Beauty by Anna Sewell.
- One book youâ€™d want on a desert island.
I honestly don’t think I’d cope with just one if I was there for an extended period of time. The Never Ending Story would be good, if it actually was never ending :). Hmmmm. I’m tempted to say The Lord of the Rings, but I’ve read that loads of times already, so maybe it wouldn’t be a good choice. Actually, I think I’d go with Mary Gentle’s Ash: A Secret History. It’s pretty big. Got humour, violence, war. All the necessary ingredients.
- One book that made you laugh.
Good Omens by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman. One of my very favourite books of all time.
- One book that made you cry.
Another tough one. I grew up in a house of boys, I don’t cry easy ;) Erm. The last of Robin Hobb’s Farseer books. Not the Assassin trilogy, the other one. When Show Spoiler ▼
- One book that you wish had been written.
None. Cause then I wouldn’t have been able to enjoy reading it :) But one author whose style I really admire is Neil Gaiman. And I love the fact that he is labelled as just one thing. It is all writing to him whether it is a comic or a novel or a children’s story.
- One book that you wish had never been written.
None. Again. Cause even the terrible have something to offer. If only fuel for a fire :) But all the bad books, or books I haven’t enjoyed just make me appreciate the good ones all the more.
- One book youâ€™re currently reading.
Neil Gaiman’s Smoke & Mirrors which is a collection of stories. And all the more enjoyable because I just read a book I didn’t enjoy.
- One book youâ€™ve been meaning to read.
The Squad, don’t remember the author, but it is about Michael Collins and his 12 apostles.
- Now tag five people.
I’m going to finish off by tagging no one. Or everyone. Anyone. Anyone who wants to.
