So please welcome fellow Scot, Laura Cowan, who works for the NHS but is really a baker extraordinaire - I seriously hope she is making my 40th birthday cake - hers look bloomin' amazing!
Here's one she made earlier
She'll need to add a few more years on it for me, I think!
Anyway, without further ado, let's check out these questions!
I normally read fictional books, I like romantic comedy books, I got hooked into the whole FSOG genre and I'm happy to admit I totally love that kind of book now. I like a book to grip me and make me want to read more. When a book does grip me – like Sign of the Times did – I get very greedy and can not put the book down until I've finished it.
My favourite female was a draw between Holly and Maria. I loved the whole Holly and Dario storyline. Holly struck me as a "you wont get away with messing with me" kind of girl. Maria… I loved that she treated Czeslawa with 100% equality, especially with negative attitudes in modern society. Maria as well with the hardships she's faced and she still comes out as one of the strongest female characters in the book.
Maria replied:- Thanks so much, very kind of you to say so. Who said I was sane? I
am rushed off my feet constantly, but as you know I love my kids and the business gives me
Ones that catch my eye…but its not that important… If I've heard about a book and been told it's a good read then I'll read it regardless of the front cover.
So yeah you could say that I share a lot of personality traits with Czeslawa….
I absolutely loved the book for this specific reason. I read the book just after I had completed the
differently? (careful of spoilers here!)
Laura's questions to me:-
Wow! One character. I think I would prefer to be an amalgamation of a couple of characters. But If I had to be one, it would have to be Holly - Sagittarius, travel writer, loves books - kind of a no-brainer for me. Yet, I wouldn't mind Maria's life, but without the trauma.
PS Thanks for bearing with me with my formatting gremlins today. Hopefully will be sorted by Friday!
