OK, so throughout the month of June, the people at The Borough Press (with other publishers chipping in) decided to create the #bookaday hashtag on Twitter – which later became #bookadayuk. This was when they asked for your favourite book, a book that’s blue etc. and you responded for that day!
I started for the first few days, before I got sidetracked! Therefore, this is going to be a bulk catchup!
June 1: Favourite book from childhood I loved The Wishing Chair by Enid Blyton.
June 2: Best bargain 50p for a good condition copy of David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas. Now I can finally get around to reading it!
June 3: One with a blue cover The Shock of the Fall by Nathan Filer. Great book.
June 4: Least favourite book by favourite author Not a favourite author, but loved Cornelia Funke’s Inkheart. Sadly, I did not like the other two.
June 5: Doesn’t belong to me I buy and own all my books – so can’t answer this!
June 6: The one I always give as a gift Is it bad that I don’t give books as gifts?
June 7: Forgot I owned itCan’t think of one for this!
June 8: Have more than one copy Somewhere, I have another copy of The Sacrifice by Charlie Higson. After I lost my first copy, I bought another one.
June 9: Film or TV tie-in Stardust by Neil Gaiman – my favourite film. Also, I, Robot is a great movie, of which the book I have yet to read…
June 10: Reminds me of someone I love Can’t think of one for this!
June 11: Secondhand bookshop gem I don’t have any… Whoops!
June 12: I pretend to have read it Can’t think of one for this…
June 13: Makes me laugh The Skulduggery Pleasant series is great at this!
June 14: An old favourite All my favourites are current books, so not too sure for this.
June 15: Favourite fictional father Not sure!
June 16: Can’t believe more people haven’t read The Millenium Trilogy!
June 17: Future classic I’m going to say The Reason I Jump by Naoki Higashida.
June 18: Bought on a recommendation I heard Gone Girl is a good book…
June 19: Still can’t stop talking about it You guessed it, The Millennium Trilogy!
June 20: Favourite cover I love the designs on the new editions of John Green’s books – in particular, An Abundance of Katherines.
June 21: Summer read It’s taking me a while to get round to reading this, but it’s likely that Veronica Roth’s Allegiant (part of the Divergent trilogy) will be my summer read…
June 22: Out of print I don’t think I have any books that are out of print…
June 23: Made to read at school So many… Brighton Rock, Of Mice and Men, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and A Clockwork Orange.
June 24: Hooked me in to reading I guess Before I Go to Sleep by SJ Watson?
June 25: Never finished it I still need to get back to finishing The Complete Sherlock Holmes…
June 26: Should have sold more copies Not really sure for this one…
June 27: Want to be one of the characters Who wouldn’t want to have the processing power of Sherlock Holmes?
June 28: Bought at my fave independent bookshop I can remember one. Wolf Brother by Michelle Paver. Signed too, but I’ve not got round to reading it yet…
June 29: The one I have re-read most often Is it bad that I don’t re-read books?
June 30: Would save if my house burnt down Ah! I very nearly could not answer this question! It’s probably going to have to be The Millenium Series by Stieg Larsson.
