Bloggers on the Blog...Liz Loves Books

Liz welcome to Jaffareadstoo

and thanks for taking part in our

10 questions in 10 minutes....





What makes you want to blog about books?

I read a book I want to talk about it. People got fed up with me blathering so now I BLOG about it. Read a book, love a book, review a book. Although to be fair with me at the moment it’s often "Read a book love a book, add it to the "write a review" list as I can't wait to get onto the next! I then splurge and do several in a few hours.



What type of book makes you happy?

Anything that gets the blood pumping. Example: Pierce Brown and the Red Rising trilogy. Nearly drove me insane but I loved it so much. I can't even tell you the range of emotions that I went through reading both Red Rising AND Golden Son.



Which book have you recommended the most?

The Humans by Matt Haig. The book that saved my life. I am determined that everyone on the planet will have read it before I die.



Which is the best book you received as a gift?

My first copy of "To Kill a Mockingbird" Now well worn and tattered it was given to me by my Dad who has not been with us for many years.



Which book has sent a shiver down your spine? 

Oh most recently Revival by Stephen King. But the book above all others that made me hide under the duvet was House of Leaves by Mark Z Danielewsky


How many books do you have, as yet unread, on your book shelves?

Oh gosh I have NO idea. I have bookshelves full of books I've not YET read. Probably over 200. Its just the way I like it!



Tell me about a book you’ve read more than three times?

I've read all the John Connolly Charlie Parker series multiple times.  And expect to do so again. They are so haunting, beautifully written and addictive I can't get enough.


What’s your idea of book heaven or book hell?

Book Heaven: A new Courtney Summers (or add ANY of my fave authors there)  book, 2 hours, coffee and no-one to bother me. 

Book Hell : Anything involving the term "New Adult" What IS a New Adult anyway? 




Where is your favourite reading place?

My big comfy swivel reading chair with a blanket and often one of my kids curled up with their book beside me.



What has been your favourite book of the year...so far ? 

So far? Difficult. But I'd have to say "Normal" by Graeme Cameron. That book KILLED me. I dare anyone to read it and hold the moral high ground.
