Time? I should be so lucky! In honour of British Summer Time which began on Sunday when we spring forward an hour (spring? well it was more of a stagger in my case) Simon at Savidge Reads came up with this little collection of time related reading questions - feel free to join in.
Evening. An hour each night (more if I've time) before I go to sleep.
What are you spending time reading right now?
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro which is excellent so far.
What’s the best book with time in the title you have read?
The Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey -it is fantastic; it will make you want to join the Richard III Society! If you haven't read it yet, please do!
What is your favourite time (as in era) to read novels based in?
Probably Tudor, followed by the 1930s/1940s, followed by Victorian.
What book could your read time and time again?
A Civil Contract by Georgette Heyer, Middlemarch by George Eliot and anything by Dickens or Austen.
Testament by Alis Hawkins - it's fantastic, review coming soon.
What book has been your biggest waste of time?
The Pilot's Wife by Anita Shreve was pretty terrible and The French Lieutentant's Woman by John Fowles was a mega-hyped-disappointment.
What big book would you recommend to others to spend time reading if they haven’t?
What’s your favourite read of all time?
It is a hard decision between David Copperfield and Pride and Prejudice. How like an English teacher is that?? A more modern favourite is Oscar and Lucinda by Peter Carey.
Who is your favourite author of all time?
So many to chose from but I'll have to be boring and say Jane Austen.
If you have ago at this then please let me know in the comments.
