Earlier this week, I interviewed Suzanne Redfearn, author of Hush Little Baby. Today she is back to reveal her #literarycrush and what literary character she would be!
Author Spotlight: Suzanne Redfearn
What are some of your favorite books, Suzanne?
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, The Power of One by Bryce Courtney, Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck and Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
If you could choose to be a character in a book, who would you choose?
Okay, I thought about the obvious amazing literary protagonists like Jane Eyre and Katniss, but let’s be real here. If I could choose to be anyone? Wonder Woman of course. I mean let’s face it, the woman looks great, she hasn’t aged a bit since 1941. She has bullet-deflecting bracelets, a deathly tiara, and the amazing lasso of truth. She kicks butt on injustice and looks great doing it, every woman’s dream.
Do you have any #literaryconfessions?
I am not well read in the classics. Always on my to do list, but they never quite make it to the bedside table.
Do you have a #literarycrush?
I’m in love with Jean Valjean from Les Miserables, a quiet beaten hero like no other.
Do you have any guilty pleasures?
My secret guilty pleasure it watching cheesy reality television with my kids! I especially love Survivor and Love in the Wild (it’s so bad, it’s irresistibly good).
Are you a hardback, paperback, or e-book kind of reader?
When I’m writing and doing research, I use my iPad because I need to access a lot of books quickly, but for pleasure, there is nothing better than a real book. Hardback is a rare treat, mostly I read paperback.
What are some of the books in your TBR (To Be Read) list?
At least a dozen including The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt and The Circle by Dave Eggers.
