My Life in Books

Wednesday, 16 April 2014

I really can't resist a good old book tag, and I thought Jenny's My Life in Books tag was a brilliant idea. Books are one of the things that make me feel nostalgic, but always in a good way. Let me know if you do it too - I'd love to have a read!

001. What is the first book you remember reading?
Smoke and Fluff! This is one of the books that taught me to read and I have such fond memories of sitting down and giggling through it with my mum. I actually had a huge collection of these Ladybird books, but this one was my favourite. It's about two naughty kittens and it's such a product of its time - I love it. 


002. What books make up your childhood?

I barely even know where to start with this one. When I was very small I'd devour Enid Blyton story collections like The Magic Faraway Tree and The Famous Five, the Mr Men Stories and Beatrix Potter before moving on to Goosebumps and Jacqueline Wilson. 


003. What's the first series of books you devoured?

The Girls in Love series by Jacqueline Wilson. I loved these so much, and I still thought they were wonderful when I re-read them a few years ago. 

004. What books have you, or could you, read over and over again?

I don't tend to re-read books, but I've read each of the Harry Potter books several times as well as To Kill a Mockingbird, The Last Unicorn, Holes, Frankenstein and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

005. What books take you back to a certain point in your life and why?

Holes by Louis Sachar. I remember reading this in year nine English lessons and I just fell in love with it. I could read it again and again, and it will always take me back to my school days. It's one of those books that just never seems to lose its magic. 


006. What book changed your life, or could at least change someone else's?

I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith. It's the best coming-of-age novel I've ever read and I think it's a book that every woman has to read at least once. It's perfect!


007. If you could only read one book for the rest of your life, which book would it be?

The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami. I always go on about it, but I love it so much. I think it's probably the best book I've ever read.
