Liz Loves Books
Liz welcome to Jaffareadstoo
and thanks for taking part in our
10 questions in 10 minutes....
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.
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.
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
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?
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?
My big comfy swivel reading chair with a blanket and often one of my kids curled up with their book beside me.

Under the Shadow
1858 - 1924
Where bluebells draw the sky down to the wood,
Where, 'mid brown leaves, the primroses awake
And hidden violets smell of solitude;
Beneath green leaves bright-fluttered by the wing
Of fleeting, beautiful, immortal Spring,
I should have said, 'I love you,' and your eyes
Have said, 'I, too . . . ' The gods saw otherwise.
For this is winter, and the London streets
Are full of soldiers from that far, fierce fray
Where life knows death, and where poor glory meets
Full-face with shame, and weeps and turns away.
And in the broken, trampled foreign wood
Is horror, and the terrible scent of blood,
And love shines tremulous, like a drowning star,
Under the shadow of the wings of war.
