Gail Carriger

What would your dream holiday be like?

I am not sure where I would go but I would want it to be a relaxing area. (not the beach)

What is the worst book you have ever read, and why?

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I DNF’d this book at 50% done. I do not own the book anymore so I can not tell you want page I just know I was exactly halfway through.

This book is sold as this great Scottish love story with time travel. What they do not tell you is all of the threats and attempts of rape and the abuse committed on the female lead. What really got me was the female lead was just so accepting and it was okay because he made her a ring.

It’s just not okay. If you like this book that’s great but I just could not stomach it.

What is your favorite book cover and why?

I picked three.  I just love the designs on these and all the thought that went into creating them.
