a while ago my fantastic friend Em nominated me for the Liebster award and obviously this is a huge honor. Thank you so much, Em! You rock! So today I want to answer the questions which Em mentioned in her post. You should all check out her blog by the way, she loves books and cats and writes fantastic reviews.
What's your favourite part of book blogging?
Well, I am not a book blogger myself but I do love to read book reviews. As many as possible. I mean, I always need a good recommendation and Em gives me lots of them. I wrote a couple of reviews when I started my blog and I have no idea why I stopped. But that's one of the things I want to change about my blog: write some book reviews. I love reading and I do have a blog so I guess it would be a logical decision. Book blogs are definitely one of my favorite source for information (also my friends and book stores).
Have you found people in the book blogging community that you really connect with?
Oh yes, Em is fantastic and I am happy to call her my friend. I am also glad that I found my fellow book lovers and friends Martha and Celeste and Rooth and Ankita. We book lovers have to stick together.
Anyone you talk to outside of blog comments?
Of course. I do talk a lot with the girls mentioned above. I found many fantastic friends because of my blogs. And I love to communicate with them.
What's your favourite genre (or genres) to read?
Scandinavian and Icelandic crime novels. Especially Henning Mankell, Arnaldur Indriðason, Håkan Nesser, Åke Edwardson, Yrsa Sigurðardóttir, Jussi Adler-Olsen....I also love to read about traveling.
Your least favourite?
I am not a fan of romantic love stories (they have to be funny at least...or involve a crime).
Which book do you think everyone should read?
Well, all books by the authors mentioned above. Plus the Adrian Mole Diaries by Sue Townsend.
What books are on your TBR list for the summer?
My TBR list is endless but on top are: the David Hunter series by Simon Beckett, the latest books by Max Bentow and Lars Kepler, The Girl Who Saved The King Of Sweden by Jonas Jonasson....
Which book cover would you be most likely to frame and hang on your wall as a piece of art?
"Das alte Haus" - because it reminds me of my Mom. She always read that book to me before I was able to read it myself.
If you could ask the author of your favourite book two questions, what would they be?
1. Can't you write faster? 2. Why?
Which fictional world do you wish you could move into?
I would love to live in The Burrow.
What's your favourite literary adaptation? (Movie, TV Show, etc.)
I usually like the books a lot better than the movies because I like the way I imagine the characters etc. but I do love the Harry Potter movies. A lot.
I like Orange Is The New Black but I have to admit that I never read the book so I can't tell if it is better or not.
When you're not reading, what else are you doing for fun?
Entertaining my pets, drawing, painting, going to flea markets, drinking tea, spending time with my loved ones, writing, watching movies and tv shows, being with animals, listening to music, going to concerts, traveling, cooking and baking, daydreaming...
Have a fantastic weekend!
