Truthful Tuesday: March 30th, 2021

Frank aka PCGuuyIV is our host for Truthful Tuesday.
I’m doing this on Wednesday as out of respect for Sue Vincent who passed away on Monday March 29th, my blog was quiet yesterday other than approving pingbacks, reading posts or responding to comments.

Over to Frank’s challenge:

The Questions

Last week, I began asking about reading habits. Naturally, I thought of more questions on that topic once everything was published, so I have decided to address those questions this week.

  1. Are there any books that you can read over and over again, and never seem to tire of?
  2. Have any of your favorite authors written any books that you just didn’t care for?
  3. When it comes books, do you prefer reading fiction or non-fiction? The genre is unimportant.

  1. Are there any books that you can read over and over again, and never seem to tire of?
    Several. but none are what one would deem as classics:
    I wore the gilt off the cover of my copy of Remember When by Judith McNaught,

    Digital Camera

    I have read Erica James Precious Time at least 7 times, and will probably replace my copy which went to charity in the Big Sort Out. Sandra Brown’s Breath of Scandal, Where There’s Smoke, Envy and The Silken Web are all books I enjoyed on many occasions.

  2. Have any of your favorite authors written any books that you just didn’t care for?
    I had the first 18 books by Lee Child in respect of Jack Reacher. I have not read any since Tom Cruise was cast as the character. This guy is Reacher
    TC isn’t.
  3. When it comes books, do you prefer reading fiction or non-fiction? The genre is unimportant.
    I’ve read a few autobiographies, but prefer fiction.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Interesting authors you like di! I’ve never read anything by any of them!

    • I had over 70 titles by Sandra Brown, everything by Erica James and Cathy Kelly, a load of David Baldacci, Nora Roberts, and Matthew Reilly. I have very few books now.

  2. It’s strange how we come to associate a particular actor with a character from a book. I cannot envision any person except David Suchet as Hercule Poirot. He just IS Poirot. I’ve seen others and it just feels wrong to see that other actor trying to do the role, however well they might act. I’ve never thought Tom Cruise had the physical body type to be an action hero, but they seem to cast him in those roles all the same. He’s just too short and skinny (and now I suppose too old). I like your choice for Jack Reacher, even though I’ve never read one of the books nor seen even one of the movies (to date). I’ll have to remedy that one of these days!

    • The first Reacher books were good, but he;s signed over the franchise to his brother. The guy in the pic is going to be the TV Reacher apparently. I think TC casts himself as action heroes, and did a lot of his own stunts apparently for the Mission Impossible movies. Can’t say I will watch a Reacher movie, but the first was based on the book One Shot, and it was a damn good read. I also liked Trip Wire and Bad Luck and Trouble (though a bit gory in places)
