What was the first book that moved you? Scared you? Made you cry?
Some of Stephen King's early works scared me when I first read them at around 12-14 years old. One of the first books I remember really crying over was Les Miserables by Victor Hugo, which I read when I was about 12 or 13 too. It was obviously an emotional period for me! :)

Can you read and watch TV at the same time?

No, the TV tends to distract me. I prefer to read in silence, to fully immerse myself.

 


I've decide to join a few more hops too. Not sure if I'll do all four every week or whether I'll swap and change between them, but we'll see how it goes.

At present, I am reading a non-fiction book which I received as an ARC via NetGalley. It is called Kings of Georgian Britain and the author is Catherine Curzon. It will release on 31 March 2017 from Pen and Sword Books, and I expect to put up my review this weekend. Overall, I have found it an enjoyable and interesting read.http://www.fredasvoice.com/



Here is the opening sentence: "They weren't Englishmen, these kings of the Georgian era...."

And from page 56:
"The result of these wanderings was that Peter was eventually made to wear a collar so that he could be returned home like a lost animal."
