Today I am delighted to welcome blogger Amy Sullivan of Novel Gossip to Jen Med’s Book Review to share a little #Booklove. Before we take a look at all her selections, tlet’s find out a little more about Amy.
I’m Amy, a busy wife and stay at home mom to three kids who is passionate about reading. Diving into a new novel is one of my favorite ways to escape from reality. Gossiping about novels is my obsession. Whether it’s a book I read in the past, or a upcoming new release from one of my favorite authors, I am always ready to discuss all things book related.
Favourite book from childhood
I’m going to take it way back to the first book I can remember being able to read on my own and choose Beezus and Ramona by Beverly Cleary. I LOVED this series from about second to fifth grade.
The first book you fell in love with
I remember being pretty impressed with Are You There God? It’s Me Margaret by Judy Blume in middle school. It was the first time I read a book and could relate wholeheartedly with the protagonist.
Biggest book crush
The book character you’re totally in love with
Will Trent from Karin Slaughter‘s series. I love every little awkward thing about him!
Weirdest book crush
I don’t have just one, but this happens to me more often than I should probably admit. Sigh. Sometimes I end up liking the killer or bad guy in a book. I don’t know why, they’re not meant to be likable but it happens. Like Alex Thorne in Angela Marsons series or Sarah from PsychoAnalysis
Hardest break up
The book you didn’t want to end
The Last Harry Potter book, it was hard to let go after so many years!
The one that got away
The book in your TBR or wish list that you regret not having started yet.
The Mountain in my Shoe by Louise Beech. I know it’s fabulous, too many of my favorite bloggers have raved over it but I haven’t found time to squeeze it in yet!
Guilty Reading pleasure
Love one, love them all
Favourite series or genre
Not gonna pick just one series! So genre I’ll say mystery/thriller just so I can cover all the bases.
Your latest squeeze
Favourite read of the last 12 months
Oohh these are getting more difficult! Sirens by Joseph Knox.
Blind date for a friend
If you were to set a friend up with a blind date (book) which one would it be?
My go to recommendation if I don’t know what someone likes is always Behind Closed Doors by B. A. Paris. So far I haven’t had anyone be disappointed. Or they just haven’t told me!
Greatest love of all
Favourite book of all time.
You are one wicked woman Jen! I’m going to use a highly scientific method here and pull up my favorites shelf on Goodreads, close my eyes and point. Daisy in Chains by Sharon Bolton, pretty good choice if I do say so myself. Gotta love science
At last!. Someone who recognises that I am evil! Great choices there but then you love my genre – crime and thrillers. You know I’ve never read Behind Closed Doors. I might need to take a look. Thanks Amy.. Totally get what you mean about Will Trent by the way 😉
What do you think? Are Amy’s picks a yey or a nay? Make sure to join me next week when I’ll be sharing some more #booklove from Beth Webb and Jennifer Gilmour.
