Dianna reads… #carolinareads

What’s the first book you remember reading?
An illustrated collection of old fairy tales; I remember the illustrations but sadly not the title.

What’s the most recent book you have read or what are you reading right now?
Right now I’m reading the Lucifer graphic novels in Neil Gaiman’s Sandman universe. It’s the first time I’ve read graphic novels in ages and it’s been a great change of pace!

Why did you choose that book?
I managed to convince a friend to loan it to me as research because I’m co-writing a graphic novel myself. You should read what you write, right?

If you could meet one book character or one author, who would you like it to be and why?
Terry Pratchett! He was brilliant, funny, and by all accounts very kind. And Discworld grew so much, in a way most fantasy authors don’t let their world’s grow.

You can only choose five books for your bookshelf. What are they?

Clariel by Garth Nix, Woman on the Edge of Time by Marge Piercy, Lady of Hay by Barbara Erskine, and A Raw Mix of Carelessness and Longing by Cecilia Frey.

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.
