Helen from My Novel Opinion

Today please welcome Helen, who blogs at My Novel Opinion.


What's the meaning behind the name of your book blog?

I tried to come up with something unique related to my views and books...and so My Novel Opinion was born.

How long have you been blogging?

I'm a newbie..only since April 2013!

What's your earliest memory of reading?

My earliest memory of reading is in primary school going through the guided reading books...Roger Red Hat and the Timothy & Tobias series.

What was the first book you read over and over, or the book you've reread the most?

The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett is my absolute favorite! 

Writing in books: Yes or hell to the no?

Hell no!! If I need to make notes I use a separate notebook. 

Do you have any reading accessories you can't do without?

I like background noise...whether it's the TV or music or my husband playing PS3. And then months even years later I'll hear a song and know what book I was reading and all the feelings come back!

Finish the sentence: My bookshelves are...

not big enough! I desperately need more space so I can properly organize all of my books.

My TBR pile is...

too big and contributing to my bookshelf problem!

What's your favorite book to movie adaptation?

Tough to chose a favorite but one of my favorites has to be The Green Mile.


Thank you for joining us today, Helen! Remember to check out Helen's blog, My Novel Opinion, and leave a comment or question.

  1. Thanks for stopping by, and welcome to the book blogging world!!

    I did enjoy The Green Mile quite a bit. I'm actually wondering if I should re-read this book one of these days!

    1. Thanks for featuring me Tif! I haven't read the book in years but re-watch the movie every now and again.

  2. I haven't seen the movie The Green Mile but I LOVED the book. It blew me away. (On a related note, I've watched and loved The Shawshank Redemption but never read the book... I should probably fix both of those.)

    1. Now the Shawshank Redemption...I haven't read OR watched that one despite constant persuasion from my mom. It's one of her favorite movies so I know I'll have to watch one day.

  3. I've never read The Green Mile, but it sounds like I ought to!

  5. I really REALLY need to read The Green Mile!

    I love your answer about background noise. I'm easily distracted, (Say, by one of my cats who insists on cleaning himself next to me while I'm reading) so I turn on my white noise machine ;)

    Great to see you here Helen :D

    1. Yes you really REALLY do need to read The Green Mile. I think you would love it! One of the few books I actually reread.

      Background noise is a must...Right now hubby is away so I'll sit reading with nonsense on the TV just for the noise :)

  6. I liked The Secret Garden too, but haven't read it in years. Perhaps time for a re-read...

    1. I don't reread books often, but this is one of the few that I actually lost track of how many times I read it. It holds so many memories for me...reading it with my mom, reading it with my sister. I hope to read it with my daughter soon and can only hope she enjoys it as much as me.
