A book set in a destination that you’d love to travel to:

A Madness of Sunshine (read) and Quiet in Her Bones (tbr) by Nalini Singh

New Zealand has been on my ‘desperate to travel to’ places for the longest time. I’m still sorry I didn’t add a week to my holiday when I went to Australia. So I could go to New Zealand. It was our honeymoon destination pick though so I was saving it. We were supposed to get married in 2020 so honeymoon (Vietnam and New Zealand) in 2020. And then 2020 happened.


A book that’s your favorite colour:

Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa

Black and red together! Perfect cover and fabulous book and trilogy.


Which book do you have the fondest memories of?

After You’d Gone by Maggie O’Farrell, Beach Music by Pat Conroy and The Horse Whisperer by Nicholas Evans

I was a big reader as a kid and then during my early teenage years I was too cool to read *eyeroll* and avoided it. After my final exams in school though I was dying to read books that had nothing to do with school and these were the books I remember most from that summer. I have great memories from that time in my life and I always think of those times when I think of these books and vice versa.


Which book did you have the most difficulty reading?

Bleak House by Charles Dickens

This isn’t a difficult read per say but it’s a very prose heavy book and it took me a long time to find my flow while reading it. It’s also MASSIVE and that was intimidating given that it took me a lot longer to make progress than it usually would. For a while I felt like I was going backwards! 😀 I thoroughly enjoyed this book though and the small struggle at the start was worth it.


Which book on your tbr will give you the most satisfaction to finish?

Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke

Like Bleak House the size of this is intimidating and for some reason I think it’s going to be similar to Bleak House in terms of prose. I’ve no idea if that’s fact or not but it’s been on my tbr for an age and once I finally read it I’ll feel very satisficed.
