What are you reading right now? How do you like it?

 

I just started reading Rip Current by Amanda James. I just started it so it is hard to tell
 
 

When have you discovered you’re a book lover?

 

I have loved reading for as long as I can remember. I remember the See Spot Run books in school and I remember loving Black beauty.

Why reading is important to you?

 

Reading has always been an escape for me but I love sharing my love of reading with others.
 
 

Which books are you most excited recommending to your followers?

 

Anything by B.A.Paris , The Haunted Queen by Alison Weir and too many to mention. I am a fan of historical fiction.
 
Bring Me Back: A Novel - B.A. ParisJane Seymour, the Haunted Queen (Six Tudor Queens) - Alison Weir
 
 
Your blog name indicates Irish roots. Does the Irish history influence your book picks?
 
I would have to say yes it does when I see a book's description and it takes place in Ireland  or it is an Irish author, I always take a look at it.
 
 
What’s your reading plan for 2018?
 
In past years I read 150 books a year but since I had open heart surgery in December, I have had to cut down on the reading, my mind has not been able to focus as much. They tell me that is temporary.
 

 

Do you read one book or several at a time?

 

I used to have two or three going at the same time but now it is usually one

 

Shelf

 

Do you review all books you read? How does your review process look like?

 

I usually do review all of the books as I participate in a few book tours. I really don't have a process, I finish a book and just write the review, pretty simple.

 

 

A library or a bookstore?

 

Since I review books, I get most of my reading material from author's or publishers so it is rare that I go to either.

 

 

Your Shelf presents various types of books. Do you have a favorite genre or you simply don’t limit yourself only to one?

 

I love a good psychological thriller and historical fiction
 

 

What are your three favorite book covers?

 

I love all the covers...lol

 

 

A paper book or an e-book?

 

I am comfortable with both.
 

 

Three titles for a holiday break?

 

Usually whatever book I happen to be reading at the time
 

 

Favorite quote?

 

"Love lights more fires than hate extinguishes - Ella Wheeler Wilcox
 

 

If you could pair a book with a drink, what would you prepare to sip while reading?

 

I can't drink alcohol anymore but if I did it would be wine, now it is coffee or hot chocolate or iced tea, depending on the weather.

 
 
Shelfie time! Please share your home library photos :)
 
I have bookcases all over the house!
 
Thank you!
