Author you’ve read the most books from: Luanne Rice. I have a list of her books in my diary, so I just counted and I read 13 of them!

Best Sequel Ever: Scarlett by Alexandra Ripley. Gone with the wind purists may call me what they like, but I was just so happy there was more to the story of Rhett and Scarlett after the ending of Gone with the wind.

Currently Reading: Geek girls don't date dukes by Gina Lamm

Drink of Choice While Reading: Tea! Drink of choice for everything really.

E-reader or Physical Book? Both. I've discovered the e-reader (or actually, Kindle App on my phone) quite recently, but I quite like it. It gives me the ability to have access to a great number of free classics that my library does not hold. But I do dearly love physical books as well and I dread the idea of physical bookstores or libraries disapearing in the future :-S

Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School: He's not really from a book (though books were made to accompany the series), but my fictional crush of my teenage years was Byron Sully from Dr.Quinn: Medical Woman.

Glad You Gave This Book A Chance: I've a bit of a Dutch literature trauma from my secondary school days. I had one Dutch work of literature on my shelf for years. It was given to me as a gift, so I didn't just want to give it away/sell it, but I couldn't bring myself to read it either. I read Het recht op terugkeer a few months back and it was surprisingly good!

Hidden Gem Book: Sowing the seeds of love by Tara Heavey

Important Moment in your Reading Life: I can vividly remember I went to the adult section for the first time in the library and started reading books from there. I must have been around 15 or 16.

Just Finished: Cinder by Marissa Meyer (seems like a lot of us have been reading this book lately!) I absolutely loved it!

Kinds of Books You Won’t Read: Erotica, horror

Longest Book You’ve Read: Parade's End is over 950 pages, but it was originally published in four parts, so does it count as one book?

Major book hangover because of: Usually when I read a classic. There's just so much to think about when you finish one of those, often more than with contemporary books (there are exceptions ofcourse). In this case I sometimes read only magazines for a day or two before starting a new book.

Number of Bookcases You Own: One, but it's getting really, really full now, so I'm thinking about buying a second one!

One Book You Have Read Multiple Times: I've read all Jane Austen's works twice now.

Preferred Place To Read: Either in the garden on a quiet summer evening or curled up on the sofa on a windy autumn day.

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read: “It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till. What weather they shall have is not ours to rule.” Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien

Reading Regret: Simply stated: So many books, so little time!

Series You Started And Need To Finish (all books are out in series): None comes to mind at the moment.

Three of your All-Time Favorite Books: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brönte, Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien and Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers

Unapologetic Fangirl For: James Herriot's books (or really any book with cute animal scenes!)

Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others: After having read Cinder by Marissa Meyer, I don't know how I'm every going to wait for the last two books in the series to come out (Cress in Spring '14 and Winter in Spring '15), especially when the second book, Scarlett, proves to be just as good as Cinder (I've got Scarlett on hold at the library)

Worst Bookish Habit: Can't really think of any... You should ask my friends!

X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book: I'm not at home right now and I don't have 27 books on my shelf at work!

Your latest book purchase: I bought three books at Waterstone's in London last week (Allegedly the largest bookstore in Europe): Attachments by Rainbow Rowell, Servants: A downstairs view of the 20th century by Lucy Lethbridge and The War Horses by Simon Butler

ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late): The Bookstore by Deborah Meyler in a way. It didn't keep me up late, but it did keep me from starting to cook before I finished the book. And I was dissapointed by the book's ending, so then I was dissapointed ánd very hungry....
