I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by the very lovely Jo, who blogs at Jo’s Book Blog. If you don’t follow already, you really should 🙂

Jo’s 11 questions to me:
A nice easy one to start you off – what are you currently reading?
I’m currently reading Winter Downs by Jan Edwards. I will be sharing my review as part of Jan’s blog tour, on 3rd June.
Who is your favourite author?
Oooo, that’s a harsh question!! I have many, many favourite authors. To avoid upsetting those who I know more personally I’m going to say Stephen King as I have enjoyed his books since my early teens.
What was your favourite book of 2016?
Another harsh question! I read some amazing books last year, but I’m going to go with Moondance by Diane Chandler.
My main reason being that it provoked very conflicting emotions. I really didn’t like the main character, but was totally engrossed in her story, which I think is a sure sign of brilliant writing.

Where do you like to read?
I read anywhere, pretty much (I have the kindle app on my phone if I don’t happen to have my Paperwhite with me), but I mostly read in bed, on the sofa or sat at the kitchen table whilst I’m sorting dinner out.
Are there any fictional characters that share your name?
Not that I’m aware of. Do you know of any called Kerry Parsons? Or Kerry Bowen (my maiden name)?
What books did you like to read as a child?
I loved Roald Dahl and Enid Blyton.
What is your favourite bookish quote?
So many books, so little time!
What book would you recommend to someone who doesn’t enjoy reading? (Yes, I believe that there are such people out there!)
It would depend on the person really, but I think The Boy in the Striped Pajamas would be a good choice for anyone.
Why did you start your blog?
Mainly to keep track of what I’ve read and to hopefully encourage others to buy and read the books I’ve loved.
More generally, what do you like to do when you’re not reading?
I spend a lot of time with my family and friends. I like to walk, cook, bake, watch TV/films, listen to music….. the usual things really.
If you could have any superhero power, what would it be?
If I had the power to heal, that would be pretty cool.

1 – When did you start your blog?
2 – What was your first blog post?
3 – Who are your top 5 favourite authors?
4 – Who are your top 5 favourite book bloggers?
