How often do you like to read?

“I love to read. I read for about two hours a day. I think it is very important to read. Reading has expanded my general knowledge and has opened my eyes up to different views, opinions and alternative realms. You can get something out of every book, whether it’s how not to write a book or learning something about yourself.”

What do you like to read?

I like to get a taste of everything, Sci-fi to romance to adventure. I am not a fan of many popular books and find a lot of them cliche but I do like the classics and many more.”

List one book that has left a lasting impression on you and explain why it’s so memorable.                                                                     “I have two books. The first would be “The Trylle Trilogy” by Amanda Hocking. I loved this book. Her fast paced style and loveable characters made it unforgettable. It would hands down be my favourite book.

The second is “Touch of Power”by Maria V. Synder. It is not just an average adventure book but has politics, magic and walking dead. It kept you on the edge of your seat begging you for more. The plot has so many twists and turns and just when you think something is certain to happen, it doesn’t.”

This is a crime thriller set in Norway. Give me any book with a fictional intent but has historical facts as the backdrop.”

As a student at the time it threw up a lot of questions about moral issues in society which were and still are very relevant”.
