Today, I will be doing the Three Bookish Things tag, which I saw Roxanne do over at An Average Life!
THREE READ ONCE AND LOVED AUTHORS
- Steve Cavanagh – I read Thirteen not long after it was released, and have since bought everything he has written, and pre-ordered every book that has followed Thirteen.
- Caroline Scott – I am a huge fan of war related historical fiction, and when I read The Photographer of the Lost, I was completely blown away. It is probably the best historical fiction book I have ever read.
- WD Jackson-Smart – I read From Inside The House for a blog tour, and absolutely fell in love. His books have everything I want in a thriller (most importantly, there’s no shying away from gorey details).
THREE TITLES I’VE WATCHED BUT HAVEN’T READ
- Sherlock Holmes – Of course I’ve seen Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman) and it is one of my favourite TV series, but I am still yet to read the books! I do own them though, so it’s definitely on my TBR.
- Jurassic Park – Another one that I’ve seen and not read, but own the book…
- Interview With The Vampire – This is one of my favourite movies! Again, I own the book, but haven’t read it.
THREE CHARACTERS YOU LOVE
- Jack Valentine (from Josie Jaffrey’s Seekers series) – I can’t even describe why or how much I love her, she’s just the best.
- Lorcan Furey (from Justin Somper’s Vampirates series) – The sweetest soul, even if he is a vampirate. He has been one of my biggest fictional loves since I was about 11 years old.
- Eddie Flynn (from Steve Cavanagh’s Eddie Flynn series) – The ultimate con artist turned lawyer. He’s sarcastic, funny, and generally a fantastic, enjoyable charatcer.
THREE SERIES BINGED
I’ll be honest, I don’t really binge series… I usually read other books in between!
THREE UNPOPULAR BOOKISH OPINIONS
- Alice In Wonderland was the worst reading experience of my life.
- The thought of people writing in books genuinely makes me want to cry.
- James Herbert was a better horror writer than Stephen King will ever be.
THREE FAVOURITE BOOK COVERS
1 – Circe by Madeline Miller – Do I even need to say anything? Just look at it! Can we also appreciate how gorgeous is is when you remove the dust cover? The cover design and naked book design for this book is absolute perfection.
2 – Brief Answers To The Big Questions by Stephen Hawking – So simple but that’s why I love it so much. The picture doesn’t really do it justice though, because when you’re physically holding the book, the black circle is so dark against the other colours that it’s like looking in to a black hole (which was probably the intention). Also, I have to point out that the picture is actually of Stephen Hawking’s old house, which I visited on a trip to Cambridge.
3 – The Immortal Prudence Blackwood by Stephanie Grey – The cover is so eerie and creepy, and it fits so perfectly with the book. I just adore this cover.
THREE GOALS FOR THIS YEAR
I wrote a whole post about this at the beginning of the year, so HERE it is!
