If you re-read books what book is your most read? If you don’t re-read books what book would you want to re-read if you could?
I do enjoy re-reading and I tend to re-read mainly fluffy books and manga. Only getting to other genres, when I do remember the story so well. That I remember of, the books I re-read the most until today was The Selection and from the manga – Fruits Basket and Dramacon.
What book would you recommend to your younger self?
I would have loved to have had the chance to read A Series of Unfortunate Events!
Favorite animation movie?
From the most recent ones Inside Out and Zootopia! Old one’s Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin.
Your most anticipated book release this year?
Check it out here. I made a list in the beginning of the year but after that I already encountered many more that I am excited about… But those were my most wanted ones! (When I did this award I hadn’t read any of them yet)
Favorite book format? (ebooks, paperback, hardcovers, audiobooks)
Paperbacks and ebooks! I love a good hardback in my bookshelf but to read I find them a bit too heavy.. And audiobooks are not very effective because I distract very easily… So paperbacks are my go-to. But since I got a kindle I only carry that one around.
What is your favorite TV show?
That’s a hard one! Let’s go my Top 3, shall we? Charmed, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Gilmore Girls. But I also really enjoy PLL, VP, GoT and How I Met Your Mother.
And the newest one I’ve been watching is Jane the Virgin and it’s hilarious!
Your favorite ship/OTP?
I answered this not that long ago and I just can’t pick one… But I will always love Kaz and Inej, Scarlet and Wolf and Anna and Etienne, …
What do you usually do if you’re not reading?
I blog and I do school work mainly taking photos and drawing. At night I see some episodes on whatever series I am cw and on Fridays sometimes I go out.
2017 reading goal?
I have a post on it here. But basically, it’s to read at least 65 books this year, being 24 of them bought before 2017.
Also, do the New Adult Reading Challenge Bingo, give priority to unfinished series and read more diversely.
What is one book that made you cry?
I’m a cry baby so it’s not that difficult… But this one caught me big time!
If you could travel one place in the entire world and all your expenses were paid, where would you go?
Difficult question… I would love to go to many places obviously… But I think first I would love to go to Japan… It’s just so freaking amazing!
Where is your favorite place to read? Like in front of a fireplace, outside on the grass, on your bed in a blanket… what?
On my bed, with three pillows and a blanket!
Which TV show would you choose to binge watch?
I’m not sure… But maybe Doctor Who (?) I’ve heard it’s great… But I never really even tried it.
Would you rather meet your favorite author but you cannot say a single word, or would you have a signed copy of your favorite book made personally to you but every 10th page is missing?
I think I would rather meet my favorite author and not being bale to talk… I could write, no? 😛 Just because missing pages in a book that is signed would be torture for me…
What is your top reading strategy to maximize how many books you will read in a year?
I go day by day… I always try to read at least 100 pages per day while I have school and work. And in the summer I read that plus what I feel like! I try not to push too hard because I get easily stressed.
What is the talent or achievement that you are most proud of?
I have no idea… But I think that it’s quite an achievement to be able to talk and write the basics of the language of the country I’m living in now.
What is your favorite movie adaptation of a book, and why?
Harry Potter, I guess. Although I’ve only read the first ones. I absolutely love both books and movies pretty much equally. Which is a bit rare.
If you were going to recommend me one book, which one would it be, and why?
Not to go with one that is overly hyped… This one is fantastic and it should be more known!
Which fictional character would you go out on a date with, and do you think it would work out?
Hmm… Aeduan? He seems so interesting and badass… It wouldn’t work tho. I would be very self-conscious about feeling anything, with him noticing my blood. Too awkward for me… But I would still love to try it out!
What kind of book swag (e.g. buttons, bookmarks, postcards, bookplates, wristbands, etc.) is your favorite?
Bookmarks! I tend to collect them. But I also love fan-made posters, candles or draws.
I tried to check, but if you have it done already, feel free to skip it!
