Today please welcome Kathleen Kelly,
who blogs at Celticlady's Reviews.
What's the meaning behind the name of your book blog?
I am Irish and love anything associated with Ireland. I have been to Ireland twice and found it to be a beautiful, mystical place.
How long have you been blogging?
Tell us a bit about your book blog. What makes it unique?
I love to share my passion for reading and I do participate in a lot of book promotion tour companies.
What genres do you write about most, and why?
Historical Fiction is my favorite genre and has been for as long as I can remember. I sometimes think I was born in the wrong era. I do prefer Irish/English history, in particular the Tudor era.
What's your earliest memory of reading?
I can't remember exactly when this happened, but I found that I could escape my real life and become someone else, even for a short time.
What was the first book you read over and over, or the book you've reread the most?
I do not care to reread a book but I have to say the only one I remember doing that with was Gone with the Wind.
Writing in books: Yes or hell to the no?
What's your favorite place to read?
I guess I would have to say, in my living room although I do read every night in bed before I go to sleep.
Do you have any reading accessories you can't do without?
I have an iPad and two Kindle Fires and I also read on my phone when I go somewhere. I also love books too.
Finish the sentence: My bookshelves are...
numerous, the only room in the house that does not have a bookcase is in the bathroom, only because the humidity would ruin the books.
My TBR pile is...
a mile high.
What's a book that's changed your life?
I can not really think of a book as changing my life other than the fact, like I said before, I can escape into someone else's adventures.
One book you like that no one else seems to, or vice versa?
I would have to say that some of the books my husband reads, especially the Civil War ones. I just am not interested in that type of book.
To DNF or not to DNF?
I guess it depends on the book. I have so many books that are scheduled to read that if I can not get into a book in at least the first 75 or so pages, I can not read it.
What's one book that intimidates you?
I think that the book that intimidates me would be the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. I have read three of the series but there are so many after that I got tired of the series..
If you could go to any literary destination, where would you go?
Anywhere in Ireland.
How about non-book related hobbies? What do you do when you don't feel like reading?
I love to spend time with my family, traveling and video games.
What's your favorite book to movie adaptation?
I am not a huge fan of book to movies, I think a lot is lost in the translation of the story. I would prefer to read the book than watch the movie.
