What’s the first book you remember reading?
As I child, I wasn’t very enthusiastic when it came to reading books as I had a very short attention span (I still do) and I could never find anything I enjoyed, but there was one book that stood out among the many books I tried and that was J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan – The Boy Who Never Grew Up. It broadened my mind and made me consider the world from multiple perspectives. To this day, it’s still one of my favourite books.
What’s the most recent book you have read or what are you reading right now?
I’m currently reading a book called Membrane by Michele Corriel.
Why did you choose that book?
I’m partaking in a blog tour for the book and I really liked the sound of the blurb, which reminded me of the book A Wrinkle in Time, and since I really enjoyed reading that book, I thought I’d give this one a try.
If you could meet one book character or one author, who would you like it to be and why?
It would have to be Jane Austen. I love Pride and Prejudice. Austen had a way of making her characters come alive in a way I’ve never seen other authors do, and it was her ability to draw readers into her world that inspired me to consider writing. I would like to pick her brain for a moment.
You can only choose five books for your bookshelf. What are they?
Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, 1984 by George Orwell, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak and The Green Mile by Stephen King.
I love anything and everything supernatural. I have a BA in Film and TV, and I currently live in the UK. I’m obsessed with movies and I love to travel. Contact info: http://www.facebook.com/AleciaStoneFan, http://www.twitter.com/Alecia_Stone, http://www.aleciastone.com
Join the movement!
I want to promote reading. I know there are so many out there who have read a book and thought, this is something others need to know about. Reading encourages a lifelong passion for learning. #carolinareads is a movement that will give readers a chance to share what they are reading. There is a five question interview. I will share it on my website and give you a chance to not only promote your love of reading but also to promote yourself as you can include a website in your two sentence biography. Don’t live in the Carolinas? Well, do you know someone who does (hint: the person who created this form) you can still participate. Submit the form and I’ll let you know the date of your spotlight. Spread the word! Join the movement. Please email a picture if you would like it to be included.
