I read this book blogger tag on Oh! Leona, and kept it on my “to do” list for a rainy day. So here it is, inspired by my love of reading…
- Which book most recently did you not finish?
It very rarely happens that I abandon a book I’ve started to read. Actually the only one I can think of is The Silmarillion by Tolkein which I’ve started about 5 times now and only read the same few chapters each time. It’s just not as readable as Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit, and I can’t get into it no matter how hard I try!
- Which book is your guilty pleasure?
Chick lit is my guilty pleasure and one I’ve hung onto because I liked it so much is A Hopeless Romantic by Harriet Evans.
- Which book do you love to hate?
Wuthering Heights, because it’s supposed to be a classic and an epic romance but I just hate all the characters and everything that happens in it!
- Which book would you throw into the sea?
Wicked by Gregory Maguire. I read this because I loved the musical Wicked, but as it turns out it’s nothing like it! I have no idea how they managed to make an entertaining musical from this completely boring book and its uninspiring characters!
- Which book have you read the most?
Pride and Prejudice, which I’ve read so many times that I’ve lost count. And for some reason I have three copies of the book too!
- Which book would you hate to receive as a present?
I love receiving books as presents, so the only ones I wouldn’t want are any that I already own or have already read!
- Which book could you not live without?
The Harry Potter books are an essential part of my life
- Which book made you the angriest?
A Thousand Splendid Suns. You can read my review here about why I hated this book.
- Which book made you cry the most?
Hard to say really, as I cry at books all the time! I definitely cried a lot at Harriet Evans – The Love of Her Life though – I cried at the sad times, the happy times and the uncertain times too.
- Which book cover do you hate the most?
Aww, none of them! I love pretty covers, but there aren’t any that I hate!
I’d love to hear your thoughts on any of the books I’ve mentioned, or leave me a link if you have written your own Book Blogger Tag post!

Ahh I saw this on Leona’s blog too – I have a draft post in waiting 🙂
I agree about Wuthering Heights – it’s like I’m meant to love it cos it’s a classic, but I just find it underwhelming. It’s no Jane Eyre. xxx
Don’t feel bad – I don’t think anyone in the history of the world has got to the end of the Silmarillon! lol xx
