- Ask them 3 questions.
1. What is your favourite genre to read and why?
That’s a great question. It’s hard! I’m tentatively going to say… classics. I read a lot of literary fiction and I read a lot of mysteries/thrillers, but I feel like for as many books as I love from those genres, just as many let me down. But I find that I rarely hate the classics that I read these days – I’m scrolling through my ‘classics’ shelf on Goodreads, and the only thing on the first page that I gave less than three stars to was To The Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf, which I still sort of appreciated on an academic level, I just found it difficult to get into. Most of the classics I can think of that I hate are ones that I read in high school, when I was probably too young to get as much out of them as I could have. Seriously, how is a 16 year old supposed to engage on any level with The Jungle by Upton Sinclair?
2. What is the latest book that you added to your TBR?
Peter and Alice by John Logan, because I was chatting with Callum about plays on my review of Twelve Angry Men, and he mentioned really liking this one! It had already been on my radar because I have a friend who was obsessed with the West End production a few years ago (cast pictured above), but I’m not personally familiar with it and would love to read it. (And I wish I could have seen that production, because I saw Ben Whishaw as John Proctor in The Crucible last summer and he was phenomenal.)
3. What is your favourite holiday to celebrate (i.e. Christmas, Halloween)?
Christmas, hands down, which is weird because I’m not religious, and my family isn’t really either. My mom was raised Catholic as she comes from an Irish family, but she doesn’t go to church these days or anything. But I love the mood of Christmas, I love giving gifts and watching the same two films with my parents every year, and I just love the general aesthetic of it.
