The Bloggers Bookshelf – Lainy from AlwaysReading @smbslt
Hi Guys, welcome back to The Bookshelf. Each week I feature an author or book blogger and talk about their bookshelf with them. It’s a light-hearted, book focused, Q&A.
This week I have a blogger who is new to me, but having spent some time browsing her blog I have to highly recommend you head over and check out alwaysreading.net and get to know Lainy.
What was the first book you remember having on your bookshelf?
IT by Stephen King. I was really young and had no place reading such a book but it began a love of reading and much needed escapism.
What was the most recent book you added to the bookshelf?
Snape: A Definitive Reading by Lorrie Kim. As a huge Harry Potter fan, I generally snap up anything going. I have seen this book discussed on many of the Potter forums & with much debate about his character I had to buy it.
Which book have you most recently read from your bookshelf?
Still Me by Jojo Moyes (an ARC) out later this month. It is book three in the life of Louisa Clark. Absolutely brilliant book that I will be buying as soon as it comes out.
Which 5 books from last year would you not let go of from your bookshelf?
Which books are you most looking forward to adding to your bookshelf?
Which genre is most predominant on your bookshelf?
That is a hard one, I grew up with horror so a lot of it is that but since blogging, I am getting into so many other genres. I would say Crime and contemporary fiction too.
Which genre do you wish you had more of on your bookshelf?
Probably more horror, that was always my fav genre growing up. Most of the review books I get are psychological thrillers, crime or contemporary. So horror and or apocalyptic, I enjoy zombie tales so much I gave them their own tab on my blog.
If your bookshelf could talk what would it say?
Buy another, I am collapsing under triple stacks here 😛
What colour do you see more of when you look at your bookshelf?
It is honestly so cramped full there is no one definitive colour, just a sea of mixed.
Can you share a picture of your bookshelf / favourite bookshelf?
Right now I’m closed to new applicants for The Bookshelf after I put a shout out on Facebook and got an overwhelming response which will take us into June! Expect to see loads of amazing people taking part over the coming weeks and I’ll let you know when I’m taking new requests right here!
