Emily Murdoch’s Three Bookish Thoughts

Who are your favourite authors? 

 My favourite authors are quite varied.   I still read many of the books that I loved when I was a child. Some of my favourite book series are Harry Potter, the Kin series, and Princess Diaries! I am also obsessed with Jane Austen, Terry Pratchett, and anything by Neil Gaiman. And there are also thousand romance authors that enjoy reading.


What are your favourite genres to get lost in as a reader? 

 I usually find myself lost in historical books.  Those are the ones where I can completely forget myself, where I am, and often what I am meant to be doing! Getting completely absorbed into another time period is just amazing.


What books are you currently reading? 

I am currently reading Flight of the Eagles by Gilbert L. Morris, Persuasion by Jane Austen, and Caversham’s Bride by Sandy Raven. You can never have too many good books on the go!

Book Review: Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor


  1. Michka McCreath

    I love history, and I enjoy reading non fictional historical material. I’m always surprised by persons reading several books at the same time, I actually like reading and finishing one book before starting another. Whenever I stop reading a particular book it’s because I am no longer interested and I generally don’t continue reading after I started something better.

      Hi Michka,
      Thanks for sharing. As a lover of history, do you enjoy reading historical fiction?

  2. Thank you so much for hosting #AValentineSecret blog tour, Chantel. Love this feature on your blog.
    Indeed interesting how you bring out the lesser known things about the writers such as their favourite books, authors etc. 🙂

    Keep blogging & stay awesome! <3

      You are welcome. I enjoy the #WYbclub collaborations. It is so much fun and interesting to explore our favourite writers and authors as readers.

  3. Ah, a fellow Potterhead. Nice! I need to check out Neil Gaiman’s books.

    Perhaps she could consider adding Gone to the Wind to her TBR list, if she hasn’t read it yet. A gripping historical read, if one is into the Civil War era.

    I love that this series is so diverse, Chantel. Keep ’em coming.

      Thanks Nadine. Is there really anyone who isn’t a Potterhead? How can that be?!

      Glad to know that you are enjoying the Three Bookish Thoughts series. The feature will as diverse and varied as the authors. And the best part we get to discover new books to add to our TBR lists.
