The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
Drink of choice while reading:
Ohhh, hot cocoa, tea, or red wine
E-reader or physical book?
Physical book, hands down!
Fictional character you actually would have dated in high school?
Hard one.. The Sandman (from Neil Gaiman's epic graphic novel) probably, he's just so intense
Glad you gave this book a chance:
Effi Briest. It was required reading back in high school, when I, of course, did not read it... I read it a few years ago and actually enjoyed it...
Hidden gem book:
Definitely and hands down my favorite book of all times: Smilla's Sense for Snow by Peter Hoeg
Important moment in your reading life:
Having to re-start a book because my usualy "scanning" reading style did not do this book justice. About halfway through the book I was so lost I just had to re-start and really read. Now guess which book that was...
A book on the early life of the Langobard queen Rosamunde.
Kinds of books you won't read:
Twilight. No, never, not if it was the last piece of writing in the world. No.
Longest book you've ever read:
Probably one of the books from the "Song of Ice and Fire" series, or this 1000+ page tome I got from my dad's book shelf when I was 14...
Major book hangover because of:
The Exocist. Oh my goodness, I was so scared I couldn't sleep, and the morning after wasn't fun..
Number of bookcases you own:
Only 2 right now, but we used to have a little private library back before hubby had to sell several hundreds of books before our big move back to Germany.. And I'm a library addict, so I'm not buying many books.
One book you have read multiple times:
Smilla's Sense of Snow. About every winter since I've been 14.
Preferred place to read:
On the bus or in bed.

Smilla's Sense of Snow by Peter Hoeg
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larssen

Missing my bus stop because I'm all lost in my book ;-)
X marks the spot: the 27th book on my shelf:
The Last Lion by Winston Churchill
Your latest book purchase:
That's a hard one, because I almost never actually buy books. Probably a regional crime novel for my dad ;-)
Zzz-snatcher book (latest book that kept you up way late):
Ohhh, that was probably The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Hoping for some inspiration tomorrow. Now off to bed!
