Hello bookworms and welcome back! On this fine Sunday night, while I fret and stress about my upcoming exam tomorrow morning, I decided, “hey, why not answer a couple of questions from some of my favourite blogger friends?”.
So hi, hey, hello! I am here answering 11 questions from both Becca @ Becca and Books and Ashley @ Socially Awkward Bookworm! Please check out their lovely blogs by clicking their blog names, give them the love they deserve!
What book do you recommend to the non-readers?
When recommending books to those who are non-readers, in my attempt to convert them into a fellow book lover, it takes some analysis of the likes and dislikes of the certain person. What genre is their favourite is the biggest question here.
For fantasy lovers: Throne of Glass, Eragon or The Hobbit
For romance lovers: The Fault in Our Stars, Eleanor & Park
For contemporary lovers: Fangirl, Jasper Jones, A Monster Calls
For sci-fi/dystopian lovers: The Knife of Never Letting Go
Favorite ethnic food?
It’s a tough choice between Asian food and English food. What a coincidence that those are my two nationalities! I adore my Asian cuisine with all my heart. I love rice, curry, fried rice, etc. However, English people have TEA. And SCONES. Oh my… scones… Yum.
Describe your dream reading room/nook/place
Oh my gosh, how can I explain it? A cozy little room, covered from head to toe with bookshelves full of books, the comfiest chair in existence in one small corner beside a window where the light will softly kiss the pages of the book I’m reading, a small table beside me with a beautiful smelling candle and a cup with tea that never runs out and NEVER gets cold. BOOM.
How many books do you have?
I think the last time I counted, I had almost over 100 as physical copies? That may have increased as of now. Okay, yes it HAS increased, lets be serious.
You can only keep 3 of the books you own. Which do you choose?
You cannot be serious right now, are you trying to break my heart?! No no no. Um, um, TOO MUCH PRESSURE, SKIP.
What would the Sorting hat choose for you?
Is this a Harry Potter reference?! I haven’t read the Harry Potter series, ah don’t kill me okay. I kind of have a strange feeling I’d be a Hufflepuff? I feel too weird talking about it right now.
What’s the best beverage and snack to drink and eat while reading.
Obviously tea, come on. My ultimate snack? I don’t tend to eat when I am reading!
Hobbies beside blogging and reading?
I love to write and am in the process of writing a novel! I also love to sing, but that hobby is slowly fading away.
Attach your favorite bookish decor item.
There are too many pretty bookish decor items to choose from!
If you could have a bookish superpower, what would you want it to be?
To be able to jump in and out of any bookish world I am reading about at my own will! The would be flipping awesome.
What’s your 2015 Reading Challenge and how much of it have you completed?
My goal this year is to read 50 books! I’m more than halfway through, if I remember correctly.
What book would you like to see turned into a movie?
Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas, obviously. BUT it needs to be executed perfectly. I don’t even care if it ends up being 5 hours, just give me a perfect Throne of Glass movie!
If you were to choose one book boyfriend/girlfriend, who would you choose?
As of right now, I want Aedion. I need a handsome, witty, snarky and bold Fae warrior in my life. Aedion is mine! *melts into a puddle of feels*
What is your favorite ice cream toppings?
I love to crumble Flake chocolate on top of my ice-cream! It’s delicious and chocolate!
What are you currently reading?
Currently I’m reading Shattered Blue by Lauren Horowitz! It’s getting exciting now, and I ADORE Judah! He is the highlight of the book for me right now.
What do you like to do when you’re not reading?
I mentioned this in the last set of questions, but why not say it again? I love to write and to sing!
What was the best book that you read so far this year?
The Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas, for sure. Queen of Shadows literally destroyed me and my soul with it’s amazingness.
I am always looking for a new TV show to watch, so what is a favorite of yours?
Gossip Girl! OOOH BUT DOCTOR WHO OUTWEIGHS ALL SHOWS.
Also, what is your favorite movie?
The Lord of the Rings trilogy is my favourite three movies of all time. Ever and forever.
What is a book everyone loves except you?
I’m a book lover. I do not dislike books (okay, not true, but… let’s not talk about that)
Dinosaurs or Sharks? This is a super important question.
Oh yes, I can feel the weight of this question. It’s seriously life or death! Give me some time, this is gonna take some pondering! … *ten years later* … DINOSAURS! Sharks are scary and I hate the ocean and it’s immense and vast depth! It makes my heart pound with fear.
What makes you the happiest, other than books of course?
Doing kind things for others randomly makes me immensely happy. Also just being with my friends and people who love me makes me so happy and listening to music is a big joy. And writing. Can’t forget that one!
