Reading meme ganked from [livejournal.com profile] suzie_shooter

1. Favourite childhood book?
Oddly, I have no idea. No books that I love to go back to because they were so important to me as a child, although I did used to read all the time.

2. What are you reading right now?
WaterProof by Chris Crowther; one of a series set on the Norfolk Broads, which is where I bought them. Slightly over-complicated plots, rather formulaic, but wonderful settings, decent characters, plots that are reasonably well resolved at the end. And no messages, no clever pondering upon the human condition, just stories.

3. What books do you have on request at the library?
Parish Registers of North Crawley in Buckinghamshire

4. Bad book habit?
The only bad book habit imo is not reading.

For those who don’t know, Yassen Gregorovich is an intriguing character in the Alex Rider books by Anthony Horowitz (AH). He was portrayed in the film Stormbreaker by British actor Damian Lewis.

I don’t have access to all the books at the moment, so these ramblings are unfortunately a little short on hard fact and actual quotes. Feel free to point out where I’ve got something wrong or interpreted it differently from how you see things.

Please note that there are spoilers under the cut for several Alex Rider books, including the last, Scorpia Rising.

Definitely an experiment, this one! Based on characters in the Alex Rider books by Anthony Horowitz, and totally inspired by [livejournal.com profile] suzie_shooter whose fantastic fics introduced me to this pairing. (Please note that this fic is not to be compared to hers, which are much better!) 100 words. White Cortina / No Warnings Required.
