Karol’s Bookerview


Without a doubt one of the funniest, warmest ladies you could ever meet. Karol always has a lot of interesting things to say, if you don’t believe me carry on reading and see for yourself…

1. If you had to only read one book again for the rest of your life what would it be and why?

Tuesdays with Morrie. It gripped me. I lived the book with the author, wallowed in the sadness of the situation but marvelled at the perspective of both characters. What they got from each other was priceless, and that conveys itself to the reader.

2. Have you ever hated a book but read the whole thing anyway?

The Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. The first book made me feel uncomfortable for so many reasons, and I needed to know how the author would bring the ‘story’ to a conclusion. She didn’t, in my opinion. A very hyped-up book that I really wish I had never picked up.

3. Do you prefer new book smell or old book smell?

Old book. My imagination of who might have read it before is intriguing.

4. Books or cats?

The combination of reading A Streetcat called Bob with a furry one curled up on my knee would be hard to beat…..

5. How many books do you think it would take to cross the giant’s causeway?

2,346,842. Actually, I have no idea!

6. Who is your favourite author and why?

I think to limit myself to one author would be a waste! I like so many different authors; Jane Austen for her wonderful characters, Sophie Kinsella for her escapism, and varying authors for their autobiographical talents.

7. Have you ever a little bit fallen in love with a character in a book?

No one in particular, but generically a bit of a bad boy character who’s also kind to his woman (a bit like life really).

8. If you had to recommend me a book to read what would it be?

Three. Tuesdays with Morrie, Life of Pi and The Book Thief.

9. What is the strangest place you have read a book?

Not really strange, but the loo when I just can’t put a book down…..

10. What would your pseudonym be?

Lorak Laws

11. Finish the sentence: I adore books because…………..

They teach you, comfort you, allow you to escape and envelope you with our beautiful language.

12. Which book do you think would make the tastiest meal?

Probably one of Jamie Oliver’s……

13. Have you got a question for me?

How will these answers help you?

In so many ways 😉 They will hopefully help me to get more people interested in my blog and help me to keep it fresh. It’s always nice to have a different voice and it gives me someone to talk to so I don’t get lonely on here.
