This week, I’m delighted to have Inheritance Books from Suz Korb. I met Suz through Twitter at some point and we seem to have very similar senses of humour.
Hi, I’m Suz, a British/American writer. I live in the midlands where it’s freezing cold because it’s winter time. I’m originally from the US and I’ve been living in England for over a decade now. I write romance in all sorts of subgenres for teens and adults.
Which book have you inherited from a generation above? Why is it special?
My mom gave me a novel to read when I was 17 years old. I think it was her way of letting me know that she thought I’d grown up because the book was Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice. Before that I was on a strict teeny bopper magazine “reading” spree. I read that vampire novel and it changed my brain. I cried, laughed and bugged out my eyes whilst reading it. I had not known such fiction before. I always hated reading literature forced upon me by English teachers when I was younger. Not that Interview with the Vampire is literature like that, it is its own classic though. Anne Rice did vampires the best, in my humble opinion. After reading IWTV my reading life was born. I devoured all of Anne Rice’s books, at the time. I subscribed to Harlequin romance books by mail. I lived at the library and checked out my fair share of booger smeared thriller novels.
I love IWTV. That and Dracula are proper vampire books. Which book would you like to leave to future generations? Why?
I’d like for my daughters to read The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien. But only if they haven’t seen the films. The movies are good, but since they’ve been made I’ve come to appreciate the actual book a whole lot more. The Hobbit was a story that sparked my imagination like no book since. Anne Rice’s books were good for emotional reading. The Hobbit instilled vision into my mind’s eye.
Great choices. Thank you for sharing your favourite books with us, Suz. Best of luck with your books. Come back and visit soon.
