I’m quite partial to a blog tag. As a reader it gives me a chance to find out more about my favourite bloggers and as a writer it’s another opportunity to talk about more of my favourite things. Today I’m sharing my life in books, which I first read on Water Painted Dreams.
What is the first book that you remember reading?
I can’t pinpoint a specific book really far back but one of the first books I read for pleasure was The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton.
What books made up your childhood?
Good old Enid again – The Famous Five, Secret Seven – plus The Babysitters Club, Sweet Valley High and Goosebumps. I liked series – I always wanted more.
What’s the first series of books you devoured?
I went after every Babysitters Club book I could find!
What books take you back to a certain point in your life and why?
I remember reaching that age when I started reading books that were found upstairs in the library – the Young Adult Books, such as Point Horror and Point Romance. I felt like such a grown up! The library was brilliant. I always took out the maximum amount.
What book changed your life or at least could change someone else’s?
To Kill a Mockingbird. I read it for the first time as an adult and I was really touched by the youthful innocence of it. It made me want the world to be a simpler place.
If you could only read one book for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Ah, just one?! I guess it would have to be a long one… Probably a compilation of books in one. Can someone make me one?
