Happy Monday Boookworms! I have another set of all about books answers for you today. I can’t believe we are at week 25! How amazing is that!
This week we have answers from Siobhan, who blogs over at The Baby Boat Diaries. And I am going to hand you straight over to her.
My name is Siobhan, a mum of two in her late twenties from the East Midlands. I blog in my “spare” time about my parenting style, breastfeeding and my life with alopecia.
Which book(s) are you currently reading?
I’m currently reading Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. I’m also dipping in and out of Happy by Fearne Cotton, The Gentle Potty Training Book by Sarah Ockwell-Smith and Infant Massage: A Handbook for Loving Parents by Vimala McClure.
What was the last book you read? And what did you think of it?
I can’t actually remember the last book I read and finished 🙈 I have a feeling it was My Baby & Me by Sam Faiers. I really enjoyed it. Sam had her first baby, Paul around the same time I had Aoife so I could relate to her a lot!
What book is next on your “to be read” list?
I have a few including The Gentle Eating Book by Sarah Ockwell-Smith and I’m going to have another go at reading After You by Jojo Moyes (I couldn’t get into it the first time
What is your favourite genre to read?
I suppose Romance? But more modern day romance.
What genre do you tend to avoid?
Horror/Murder. I have a really overactive imagination 🙈
I know this one is a tricky one, but what is your favourite book or series of books?
The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold will always be high on my list. Also The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. I know it is probably cliche but my favourite series is defo Harry Potter closely followed by the Hunger Games series.
Who is your favourite author? Or authors if you simply can’t choose one (It is a bit of a mean question)
Authors… Cecelia Ahern. Alice Sebold. JK Rowling. Giovanna Fletcher. Sylvia Plath. Enid Blyton.
What is your favourite book from your childhood?
The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton and Harry Potter.
If you have children, which books can’t you wait to read to them?
I love reading and we have a ton of kids books. I was always really excited to introduce them to Oliver Jeffers books and Julia Donaldsons.
If you could visit the world of any book, where would you go? Who would you spend time with? And what would you do?
Defo the Enchanted Woods and the Magic Faraway Tree. I would be visiting the lands with Moonface, Silky and Saucepan Man.
If you could bring any character from any book to life for a day, who would it be? And what would you do?
I would be intrigued by Katniss Everdeen and seeing what she gets up to!
For any Harry Potter Fans, which house do you think you would be sorted in to? (This seems like a kind of random question but I am strangely curious about which house people would be in)
I’d like to think Gryffindor but i’m probably more Ravenclaw!
Thank you so much Siobhan for taking the time to answer my bookish questions. I loved The Magic Faraway Tree so much when I was younger, they are such brilliant stories.
