Questions & Answers
1). What’s your favourite genre?
I read variety of genres, I find it really hard to stick to just one, but I’ll go with women’s fiction, because I read that one the most.
2). Who’s your favourite author from the genre?
Jane Costello. Her books always bright up my day and I absolutely love her.
Her next book, You Me Everything will come out under the pseudonym Catherine Isaac. I simply can’t wait to read it, because obviously it’s Jane Costello, but also there’s already so much hype around that novel. It is optioned to be made into the movie, and rights for translation have already been sold to publishers all around the world, including Germany, Italy, Spain, Norway, Sweden, Poland, Korea, Russia, Serbia, Israel, Brazil and Portugal.
3). What is it about the genre that keeps pulling you back?
I think the fact that I can relate to many things that are happening to main characters or their friends, but also books in women’s fiction genre often can prepare me how to react in certain situations and how to understand people better.
They are also fun and enjoyable. The main reason why I read so much is to be entertained, and books in this genre always amuse me.
4). What’s the book that started your love for your favourite genre?
I still remember the first book I ever read from this genre. It was Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella and I had so much fun reading it, it made me realize reading can actually be fun.
As soon as I finished it I borrowed Shopaholic series from the library (at that time there were only three books in that series and I read them in wrong order, but I didn’t care), and I was hooked.
5). If you had to recommend at least one book from your favourite genre to a non-reader/someone looking to start reading that genre, what book would you choose and why?
I’d recommend Scandalous by Tilly Bagshawe because it is one of my all time favorite books. It talks about injustice, revenge and strong women.
If you need to read one book from this genre, I highly, higly recommend you to read Scandalous. I learned a lot from that novel.
6). Why do you read?
Because books entertain me – simple as that.
They also make me learn things, understand people, expend my knowledge.
They also help me learn English, and I want to be able to understand and use that beautiful language the best I can.
I won’t tag anyone, but if you like this genre feel free to do it.
