Many thanks to Mischenko who blogs at ReadRantRock&Roll for nominating me for the Unique Blogger Award. Mischenko’s is a blog that’s quite new to me, but one that I’m really enjoying. I particularly like the Wednesday “Breakfast and a Book” posts!

Answer the questions.
In the spirit of sharing love and solidarity with our blogging family, nominate 8-13 people for the same award.
Ask them three questions.
- If you were to write a non-fiction book, what would be your subject of choice?
I’d love to say that I’m expert in some particular field, maybe related to the industry in which I work, but the truth is that I’m not, and I work in financial services, which few people are all that interested in. Thus, any non-fiction book I wrote would undoubtedly be related to books in some way. As a lover of post-apocalyptic fiction, I quite like the idea of reviewing the various ends that have been imagined for us, and maybe assessing the likelihood of each one actually happening. Morbid perhaps, but I’d find it interesting. (There’s a reason I’m not writing a non-fiction book!)
- Name a book that you extremely disliked this year, or last?
Earlier this year, I read Enduring Love for my book group, and I didn’t really enjoy it. I don’t think it was a bad book, it just wasn’t to my taste. An interesting idea, but the delivery didn’t do it for me. I’m not averse to reading other novels by McEwan, however.
- Which author would you enjoy meeting the most? Doesn’t have to be living.
For me it would have to be Sir Terry Pratchett. I’ve technically met him at a book signing, but it was so brief (and several years ago!) and as one of my favourite authors, I’d have loved the opportunity to sit down with him and just chat and laugh at the world.

- What’s your favourite book of 2017 so far? And I am going to insist upon a single book!
- I love Jasper Fforde’s Thursday Next series and the idea of being able to jump into and out of different books. If you could jump into any book, what would it be and why?
- What is your favourite quote?
