Tour Stop: Shelf Envy [13] with Kate Moretti

Hello. Today on the blog is my stop for the Thought I Knew You tour. My latest victim is author, Kate Moretti. I gotta tell ya, I’m really lovin’ every second of these posts. It’s so interesting to see everyone’s shelves. Some have just started their collection and some well stocked. Well, let’s see what Kate’s been reading when she’s not writing, shall we?
I see Sandra Brown – love her. And Sidney Sheldon! Oh the infamous apple. Harlan Coben – wow your collection is diverse. 🙂 Thanks for sharing this pic, Kate! 
1.    What was the last book you purchased?

Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn. I loved everything about it, and her writing style is terrific.  I’m going to be buying her previous two books.
2.    Name a book you wished you wrote

Before I Go To Sleep, by SJ Watson. I’d love to write a book that sticks with a reader like that. I didn’t sleep right for days. It’s just one of the creepiest books I’ve ever read!
3.    If you could live in a world of a book you’ve read, what or where would that be? Oh, The Great Gatsby, of course! At least long enough to go to a party 😉
4.    Name your ultimate top 5 books

5.    What is the most scandalous/controversial book on your shelf? 

I don’t know about the most scandalous, but the most embarrassing is The Monica Lewinsky Story, for sure. I actually really liked it! That one’s possibly tied with Sweet Valley Confidential, which I had to buy for the nostalgic factor.

  • That's a great shelf. Diverse, as you said. Do I spy American Gods? I love the one-of-a-kind premise of this book.
