Reading Meme

What have you just read?
The Were-Wolf by Clemence Housman
What are you reading now?
Lauren Oliver’s Delirium and J. Sheridan Le Fanu’s Carmilla
Do you have any idea what you’ll read when you’re done with that?
Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
What’s the worst thing you were ever forced to read?
Persuasion by Jane Austen
What’s one book you always recommend to just about anyone?
The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson
Admit it, sadly the librarians at your library know you on a first name basis, don’t they?
Nope. I don’t go to the library very often because I hate having to give books back; once I start reading a book it’s mine.
Is there a book you absolutely love, but for some reason, people never think it sounds interesting, or maybe they read it and don’t like it at all?
Uh… I recommend the Skulduggery Pleasant series quite a lot and I don’t think people believe me when I say how great it is. I also really love Anne Bronte’sAgnes Grey and most people I know who’ve read it haven’t liked it at all but I think it’s a beautiful read.
Do you read books while you eat?
Sure. Usually when I’m snacking or having lunch, I won’t read if I’m sat having dinner with family or friends, and I certainly don’t read when I eat out with others because I think it’s rude.
While you bathe?
Hell no! I might get my book wet!
While you watch movies or tv?
Again it depends on whether or not I’m with company. If I’m on my own and I have to read something for uni I’ll put a tv programme or movie on that I know well for a bit of background noise while I read, but I don’t read when I’m watching something with someone else.
While you’re on the computer?
If I’m doing work, yes, or if I’m reading something online.
When you were little did other children tease you about your reading habits?
Nope. Or if they did I didn’t notice. -shrug-
What’s the last thing you stayed up half the night reading because it was so good you couldn’t put it down?
Dark Fire by C. J. Sansom
Have any books made you cry?
Yep! Malorie Blackman’s Noughts and Crosses and Markus Zusak’s The Book Thief are the first that spring to mind.
I’d like to recommend…

Mary Brown’s The Unlikely Ones is a wonderful read for those of you out there who adore really traditional fantasy like me. What’s wonderful about this story is that the fate of the world isn’t at risk. Now don’t get me wrong those stories are wonderful, but Brown manages to make you invest in a story where really it’s only the characters’ own happiness which is at stake.
So if you love witches, spells, talking animals, knights, fair maidens, dragons and quests this is most certainly the book for you.
