This was fun! I was tagged by Lauren at romance4thebeach to participate in this questionnaire. Thanks Lauren!
Defined as: An intense and selfish desire for something.
What is your most expensive book?
2010 Guide to Literary Agents.
Defined as: Extreme anger.
What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?
Gillian Flynn. I hated the characters in Gone Girl but I couldn’t put the book down. It was so well written and suspenseful, but I hated the ending. I loved the book. No, I hated the book. See?
Defined as: Intense over-indulgence.
What book have you devoured over and over with no shame?
I wish I could say I’ve read books more than once. I don’t think I have. However, I will be re-reading The Bronze Horseman at some point. That book (the whole trilogy) just wrung me dry. So emotional. I loved it.
What book have you neglected to read due to laziness?
I’d have to say The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. This is the only book I stopped reading before finishing. For me, it was slow and I just couldn’t get through it. I also bought Anna Karenina years ago and it still sits, untouched, on my shelf. Taunting me.
Defined as: satisfaction derived from one’s own achievements or from qualities or possessions that are widely admired.
What book do you talk about most in order to sound like an intellectual reader?
I read what makes me happy and I’m proud of any book that does that. I guess if I were to try to impress someone, I’d tell them I read The Goldfinch. But I didn’t really enjoy it as much as I hoped I would. The book I talk about most lately, has to be Outlander and prior to that, Me Before You by JoJo Moyes. Fantastic books.
What attributes do you find attractive in male characters?
I like male characters who are strong, protective, slightly jealous and romantic. Perfect examples: Alexander Belov (Bronze Horseman) and Jamie Fraser (Outlander).
Defined as: a feeling of discontented or resentful longing aroused by someone else’s possessions, qualities, or luck.
What book would you most like to receive as a gift?
Definitely Ken Follett’s The Century Trilogy. The whole trilogy. I guess this kind of ties in with Greed, too.
