Here’s a reading Q&A
What is your favourite time of the day to read.
I tend to read when I go to bed. I can read everything from 10 pages to 100 in a night.
How many hours do you read a day.
I can read anything from 15mins to 2/3 hrs. It all depends how tired I am.
What is my favourite genre.
Historical fiction is my favourite, however I’m trying other genres.
Which author did you first get obsessed with.
I would say it was Lyn Andrews then Katie Flynn
Who are you currently obsessed with.
I would say Dilly Court and June Francis. To be fair my obsession is growing with many authors.
Can you read multiple books at one time.
Yes I can, nevertheless I think two is enough for me.
Which book/books was your favourite this year.
I did love “Rag n Bone Christmas” by Dilly Court. I also enjoyed “Will You Take Me Home” by Julie Tottman. This was a true story, which involved a Yorkie dog, therefore I brought the book for my goddaughter too as she’s a reader.
Who was your favourite author this year.
I would say June Francis because her characters in her books follow through her books, which I loved.
Which new authors did you try this year
I would say June Francis and Jean Fullerton were the most popular as I had read a few of their books.
Which book touched you this year.
It has to “The Convent” by Maria Hargreaves. The true story was about the horrific cruelty to children by a nun in a care home in Oldham, U.K.
How many books do you intend to read in 2021.
I’m not sure I’ll reach that target again but let’s see what happens.
