The book I am reading: It might be easier to say, what books aren't I reading. I'm reading Tanya Huff's The Fire Stone, Jordan C. Price's GhosTV, Elisa Vipera's Prophet and Cleo by Helen Brown.
The book I am writing: I am actually writing a book! My NaNo last year is 53,000 words of a novel and also about half way through the story. I really want to finish it, just to say I've written a full-length book.
The book I love most: Hands up who's surprised when I say Smoke and Mirrors by Tanya Huff. No one? Okay, so I may have mentioned it a time or two. BEST BOOK IN THE WORLD.
The last book I received as a gift: Cleo by Helen Brown. It's a true story about a family who lose a son and gain a tiny black kitten. It's not the sort of book I'd buy for myself, but it's so far made me sob for about 180 pages, so I can't say I'm not invested.
The last book I gave as a gift: I gave my mum The Other Boleyn Girl for her birthday. She was doing fine until she got to a part where Anne and her sister were discussing giving Henry VIII a handjob and now she's refusing to pick it up again!
The nearest book on my desk: I bought The Eagle by Rosemary Sutcliffe yesterday. All I know about it is that everyone keeps talking about how bad the movie version is. Somehow, this made me want to buy it? IDK.
And now that meme where you pick five of your own fics to save from the internet fire. I pick (one from each major fandom):
1. Not In This Land Alone (Merlin/Arthur)
2. Wuthering Heights and Stormy Nights (Bob/girl!Brian)
3. Only One Place They Call You One Of Their Own (Spencer/Brendon)
4. Scenes From An Accidental Courtship (John/Rodney)
5. To Run (Fraser/RayK)
