Hooked on Books with A Cornish Geek

 Hi Everyone welcome to another instalment of Hooked on books. You may not know but I run a book group on Facebook called Hooked on books with Joanna Victoria which you are welcome to join to talk all things books. 

Every Wednesday I will be bringing you a brand new guest series. I’ll be featuring  some lovely bloggers  who will be sharing their answers to reading/book related questions. I hope you manage to find some more wonderful blogs to read.  If you’re a blogger and want to take part then get in touch!

This  weeks instalment features Emma from A Cornish Geek

Cornish and proud, uber geek, bookworm, stationery obsessed, proud mumma and self-care enthusiast.  

What book(s) are you currently reading?

Just started reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - for the first time! Hufflepuff paperback edition. 

What book is next on your “to be read” list?
I've got quite a long TBR but I think I'm going to prioritise The Hate U Give next. 

What is your favourite genre to read?
It depends on my mood but lately I'm really loving feminist non-fiction.
Who are some your favourite authors?
Jodi Picoult, Sarah Knight, Holly Bourne, John Green, Jane Harper, Jane Austen.

What are your top 5 favourite books?
This is a super-hard question but I'm going to pick a range of titles: The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath, The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton, Batman: The Long Halloween by Jeph Loeb, Danny, the Champion of the World by Roald Dahl and The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. 

Paperback vs digital books - which do you prefer and why? 
I've only ever read physical books. I refuse to get an e-reader. I like to hold a book and I like pretty covers. 

What was your favourite book or series of books as a child?
The Magic Faraway Tree. I really want to re-read it. 

Do you ever cheat and skip to the end of a book? Why do you do it?
Nope, I enjoy the journey as much as the destination, if not more than. 

 Do you hang on to your books once you've read them? Or do you prefer to pass them on to a charity shop / a friend?
I save every single book. Taking part in book swaps is really hard for me as I spend ages pondering over what to part with. 

Do you read one book at a time or do you have multiples on the go?
I dip in and out of coffee table books but generally have one novel on the go at one time. 

Describe your ideal reading nook
I only ever read on the bus - the commute is the only time I get to myself these days. If I'm pages from the end of a thriller I try and finish it in bed but reading in bed normally sends me to sleep. Ideally I'd love to curl up in a good armchair though.
