So that it isn't a one sided exercise, I have posted my answers underneath each question to help you get started.
So here goes;
A book that disappointed you
The Other Hand by Chris Cleave- this book was really hyped up at its release in 2008 but it left me cold.
A book that surprised you
Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier- This book was recommended to me by my Grandmother who is also an avid reader and it is amongst my all time favourites.
A book that frightened you
The Fog by James Herbert. I never finished it because it scared me so much and have been unable to read any more James Herbert since!
A book that shocked you
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini - There are some very upsetting scenes in this book but it an excellent read and I recommend it highly.
A book that made you laugh out loud
The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole aged 13 3/4- I read this first as a teenager but have been back to it since as an adult and still love it.
A book you didn't expect to enjoy
Star of the sea by Joseph O'Connor (Brother of Singer Sinead!) A surprisingly good read.
The book you have re-read the most
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte- This is the first book I fell in love with as a teenager. I have lost count of just how many times I have read it.
Your favourite genre
I like books from all genres but if I had to choose I would say historical fiction.
Name a book that will always live on your bookshelf and why
Eckhart Tolle A New Earth (see my previous blog post)
I am really looking forward to reading your answers and I hope you all enjoy taking part.
Happy Friday everyone!!
