I have seen this challenge all over the blogs I follow and thought I would give it a go myself. I do not know who originally created the challenge but I saw it on Tomes with Tea, Jayne Vs Books and Stories Have Power.
Author you’ve read the most books from.
Julia Quinn – who writes the most amazing historical romances. The characters are all intertwined throughout the series and you get to see each character’s story told.
Elly Griffiths – I love this lady and her books. The Ruth Galloway series is one of my favourites.
Best sequel ever?
Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J Maas.
It. Was. Legendary.
The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden.
Once by Morris Gleitzman.
Drink of choice while reading.
Sugar free lemonade or sugar free hot chocolate occasionally.
E-Reader or Physical book.
I bought a kindle years ago because my shelves were overflowing but I couldn’t get comfy with it and it eventually stopped working. For me, physical book wins every time.
Fictional character you probably would have dated in high-school.
Rowan from the Throne of Glass series.
Thorin from The Hobbit
Neville Longbottom from Harry Potter
Draco Malfoy from Harry Potter.
Glad you gave this book a chance.
The Silence Between Breaths by Cath Staincliffe
Not a genre of book I would ever read but haunting and powerful. Glad I read it.

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read.
“Happiness can be found in even the darkest of times, but only to those who remember to turn on the light.”
“For in dreams we enter a world entirely our own. Let them swim in the deepest ocean or glide over the highest cloud.”
“Some believe it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. It is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love.”
That I was born to read but born to never finish my list.
