Emer’s 11 Questions

What is your all time favourite book?

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern….it’s the book I always recommend to everyone. I haven’t read it for 4 years and I only read it once but it has stood out in my memory ever since.

What is your favourite non-bookish hobby?

When I’m not doing something bookish, you can find me taking photographs. I’ve just bought a starter DSLR and I’m learning to úse it. I’m interested in having a play with some photo editing apps in the near future…with the help of my digitally talented son.

If you could cast anyone to play you in the film of your life who would you choose?

The first person that came to mind is Reese Witherspoon…so I’m going with that. I really like her as a person and as an actress (although she is not my favourite actress) and from what I know of her we are quite similar. In different circumstances….like if she wasn’t a star….we could be good friends.

What is your favourite genre of books to read?

I have to pick only one?? I mostly read contemporary fiction….something with a bit of drama.

If you could have any superhero power, what power would you choose?

Speed reading…that’s a superhero power isn’t it? 😉

What is your favourite song right now?

I’ve got this one on repeat…….Speechless – Dan + Shay

Who is the author you have read most books by?

Liane Moriarty…although Taylor Jenkins Reid is fast catching up.

Do you like to read the book before you see the film?


What is your favourite format of book to read (paperback, eBook, audiobook etc.)?

Paperback…they smell and feel so good….there’s not much better than piles of paperbacks stacked all around the house.

Are you a member of any book groups either in real life or online?

Not yet but I would like to be.

What is the blog post you are most proud of writing? Share a link.

My proudest blog post (so far) is this book review: Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate because it got me my first notice from an author. I was so excited when Lisa messaged to tell me she liked my review….yes it was most likely her assistant or someone but still….EXCITING!

And there you go…that’s my answers…..thanks Emer for some great questions …
