Booking Through Thursday – More

8 Mar

A while ago, I interviewed my readers for a change, and my final question was, “What question have I NOT asked at BTT that you’d love me to ask?” I got some great responses and will be picking out some of the questions from time to time to ask the rest of you. Like now.

Ted asks:

Which non-series book would you most like to read the sequel to? Do you have any wishes for what might happen in it?

Thinking about this question, i actually think that this is quite hard. I read a lot of different books and sometimes forget the good books! Also I read a LOT of series books too, they are probably one of the biggest things i read.

So after a lot of thinking I am going to pick the book that i finished last night. I was up until about 2am finishing this book, something that doesn’t normally happen for me. This book was Emotional Geology by Linda Gillard. This book is beautiful, poetic, sometimes haunting, but an absolutely beautiful book.

I wanted this story to go on and on, and was so disappointed that i had finished the book. Now whether a sequel would work or not i dont know, but i just wanted the story to go on and on.

    Thank you so much for this blog about EMOTIONAL GEOLOGY. I’m the author. 🙂

    I don’t suppose there’s any higher compliment a reader can pay an author than “I just wanted the story to go on and on”. You are not alone. Over the years (it was published in 2005) readers have told me that they read the book slowly, savouring it to make it last. (And some have gobbled it in one sitting!)

    I have some idea how you feel because I was so grief-stricken (I think that’s the word) as I approached the end of writing EG that I had to start writing a new, completely different book, even before I’d finished writing EG, in order to cope with my sense of “bereavement”. The next novel helped, but I still missed the characters of EG terribly (especially Calum with whom I was definitely in love!)

    I don’t think there will ever be a sequel to EMOTIONAL GEOLOGY (although readers have requested it) but if you want to read something similar, my 3rd novel STAR GAZING is perhaps the closest, or possibly my most recent, UNTYING THE KNOT. They’re both very romantic (SG was shortlisted for Romantic Novel of the Year) and both have the same mixture of comedy and tragedy that characterises EMOTIONAL GEOLOGY.

    Thanks once again for this review.

      wow, this is the first time ive had a response from an author of a book. I really enjoyed this story, you sent me a personalised copy having won it in a competition on the BCF a couple of years back 🙂 I cant wait to read more of your books 🙂

      • Linda Gillard March 9, 2012 at 10:56 pm #

        Oh, I didn’t realise it was a BCF win! That’s great. I’m pleased to have made contact with you again. 🙂

      • shelovestoread March 9, 2012 at 11:20 pm #

        I will be doing a proper post both on here and over on the BCF because i think the book deserves a proper post 🙂

    Sounds like it was a really good read, just read the description. It’s hard letting go of things and moving on. Here’s my BTT.

    I think there’s some merit to the standalone novel.

    But I’m old and a curmudgeon! LOL

    • shelovestoread March 9, 2012 at 10:44 pm #

      lol there is something about standalone novels too, i do like them too!

    When I want a story to go on, it’s usually the characters and the settings that have grabbed hold of me. So that’s what I looked for in my choice, here at MY THURSDAY MEMES POST

    I haven’t read this book yet either! It sounds really good though, and I love it when a story makes you just want to keep reading! Here’s my BTT.

    • shelovestoread March 9, 2012 at 10:46 pm #

    I haven’t read that one. But, in general I think there’s enough sequels around.

    • shelovestoread March 9, 2012 at 10:48 pm #

      sometimes there are too many sequals and books are taken too far!

    A book that I’ve read that I’ve wanted to go on and on each time I reread is the The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. It is my favorite young adult book ever. However, sometimes I’m appeased by going onto fanfiction.net and reading Outsiders fanfiction 🙂

    • shelovestoread March 9, 2012 at 10:48 pm #

      i need to read that book, its on my wishlist 🙂
