Give a warm welcome to Tasha from
Your favorite novel is Jane Eyre, do you like/read modern adaptations or retellings of this classic novel? I have read a few adaptions/retellings. Jane by April Linder was pretty good (Rochester is a rock star--gotta love that). You can find a list of the Jane Eyre adaptations I've read here:http://heidenkind.blogspot.com/2012/01/jane-eyre-approximately.html
You have a quite a few recipes of cocktails on your tumblr - do you have a favorite drink? There are a lot of drinks I really enjoy, but sidecars are probably my favorite.
You have a section for Art and Art History posts - do you have a favorite artists/work of art? Some of my favorite artists are JMW Turner, Edouard Manet (both of whom I've "interviewed" on my blog), Remedios Varo, and Giorgio de Chirico. I wouldn't say I have a single favorite work of art, but I love John Singer Sargent's Street in Venice, and seeing Botticelli's Birth of Venus and Donatello's Mary Magdalene were incredible experiences.
Besides Harry Potter, do you have a book (or series) that you think people will be still reading in 100 years? Hard to say. It's difficult to image Twilight will still be as popular in 100 years as it is now, but you never know. It could happen! As for adult novels, I honestly couldn't even guess.
What is the best book you've read so far this year? Best as in most enjoyable, or best as in most well-written? :p I've read a few really good books this year. I think my favorites were The Man In Lower Ten by Mary Roberts Rinehart and Scaramouche by Rafael Sabatini. I also really liked The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie and The Amorous Education of Celia Seaton.
What do you enjoy most about blogging? Probably just the chance to socialize with other people who like books. I also really like writing and blogging gives me a creative outlet, especially the drinks blog.
