Last book you absolutely loved?
One by Sarah Crossan. I didn’t rate many books 5* this year, but this was the last one I did back in September. A beautifully captivating and emotional read, written in free verse, about the lives of Tippi and Grace, conjoined twins.
A book you’d like to reread?
I’m currently re-reading Theft of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan. I full intend to re-read the entire series!
A book you want to have read before the end of 2015?
Gah. I took two Sarah Dessen books with me on holiday as soon as I finished work. I managed to complete one of them. I brought two more with me over Christmas. I haven’t picked up either! I have, however, got halfway through The Golden Braid by Melanie Dickerson which has been sitting on my Kindle for months. I have a three hour coach journey tomorrow, and fully intend to either do a PE medium term plan or complete the book – I’m one of the lucky people who can read in a moving vehicle.
Favourite couple in a book you have read this year?
Interpreting this as a romantic couple, I can honestly say I have no idea. In terms of a partnership, I adore Royce and Hadrian’s relationship in Theft of Swords, with their two characters complementing each other, making the dialogue very witty
Is there a particular author whose books you read when you were younger who now reminds you of your childhood, if so, who?
I was fortunate to have parents who encouraged me to read, buying me lots of books, and reading to me on a nightly basis. So there are absolutly loads of books that remind me of my childhood. My Dad loved reading me Dr Seuss books and anything by Roald Dahl. I loved reading My Naughty Little Sister books and anything by Jacqueline Wilson. I was able to meet her when I was about ten, and remember rambling about my best friend in the hope she would write a book about the two of us. Of course, I cannot see a Magic Key book without thinking of Primary School!
