Questions for Suzanne

A little while ago I asked my friends on twitter and facebook if they had some questions for me. It was really great to answer all of the wonderful things they've asked me.

1) Why do you write as a fictional character?

I wanted to write something that would be freely accessible for everyone. I used to love serials in magazines or newspapers and decided to try if I could do something like that on a blog. I'm really happy I gave it a shot. After a little over seven months of writing I still love Librarian Lavender and I've got plenty of ideas for the future.

2) What's your favourite place to visit in the summer holidays? 

I love going to France. I've been there too many times to count, but there are still new things to see and places to visit. I love the scenery and shopping is great as well. This summer I've spent a few days in Paris and I'm going to a city on the French/Belgian border for a long weekend. I've been in France dozens of times and the country keeps amazing me. For my next trip I want to go to another country, I would love to see more of the world, but free time is limited and I can't imagine not going to France. That's usually a bit tricky.

3) How many books do you read per week? 

I think I read about five books a week. Before I started blogging I often managed to read up to eight, but since I've started writing about books I have less time to read them.

   4) What your favourite colour?

I used to think my favourite colour was blue and that Lavender's is pink, but when I look around me I see so many pink things that I have to admit I like pink a lot more than I thought.
    5) Were would you like to go on holiday to?

I would love to go to London next. That's high on my wish list. After that I would love to visit New York, but I also want to go to the Provence, because I feel homesick. Not that I ever lived there, but we went there every year when I was a child and I have so many fond memories. It's such a beautiful place and I miss it too much if I don't go back at least every other year.

    6) What's your favourite drink? 

Non alcoholic: Lime lemonade. I really like citrus fruits and they're the perfect ingredients for a cool summer drink.
Alcoholic: Champagne, I love a good vintage!

7) If you'd be stranded on a deserted island and you could only take one book, which one would it be?   

The His Dark Materials Trilogy by Philip Pullman. I have these three books in an omnibus and I liked reading them so much. The book was a gift of a friend and it brings back a lot of memories that can keep me company while I'm out there on my own.

8)  If you could interview any writer deceased or alive who would it be?

That's a difficult question, because there are so many great authors, but I think I would choose someone who's alive. I would love to interview J.K. Rowling. She's written several successful books now after Harry Potter and I think that's such a great achievement. It's too bad that this interview is never going to happen, but it's a nice thing to dream about.

9) What is your favourite tense to read? Past or present? 

I like reading about the present and that's often what I go for when I'm choosing a book. Every time I read about the past though I like it very much. I should step out of my comfort zone a little bit more often. 

10) Do lavender and Suzanne have the same taste in books? 

I love this question and the answer is not entirely. I read a lot more romance and chick lit as Librarian Lavender. Before I started blogging I often read literature and I read a lot of paranormal and fantasy novels. I still read them, but it isn't the only thing I read anymore.
