Take two bookish bloggers.
Ask them to pick five books:
- One from childhood
- A first grown-up book
- One that a reading direction
- A book from the blogging years
- And, to finish, a surprise or a guilty pleasure
Then tell each the choices of the other and ask what those choices say about the reader.
That’s the recipe for My Life in Books, cleverly adapted from the BBC2 series by Simon at Stuck in a Book.
I was delighted to be invited to take part, and I had a lovely time chosing my books and writing about. Memories were stirred, ideas were sparked, and now you can see the results here.
Do take a look, and then I’d love to know what you think.
What a wonderful idea. I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about you and Lisa. Thomas Hardy is one of my all time favourite authors and Little Women was one of my favourites too. Did you enjoy March by Geraldine Brooks?
thanks so much for taking part, Jane! I’ve really enjoyed this series.
I also enjoyed getting to know you a little better through your reading history. Though if I’d been your “match,” the mention of Briar would have tipped me off straight away 🙂
It was a lovely post and it is great to learn more about the person behind the blog and what shapes them reading wise. It is a great series and well done Simon!
Love this series! Some great choices Fleur.
Oh Jane, I have boxed sets of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s works sitting up on the shelf in my daughter’s room, bought when she was a toddler. She hasn’t even been tempted. Your mum must have beamed when you fell in love with those books she had been squirreling away. And I must take a closer look at that Dastardly Dog book…sounds like it was written for my very own Monkey Boy, Deacon.
Very fun to read and to get to know you better!
