I’m also using these as my own for you peeps … so yeah.
One. If you could be a character from any book, which would you be and why??
I don’t think I would actually want to be another character … I’ve always imaged myself as my own person but IN a book with other characters. For instance, I would LOVE to have been a character in the Harry Potter books (like, part of the main trio) or in the Darkest Powers trilogy (I would see myself as Chloe’s older sister — who doesn’t exist — and I come and help her escape the villains … yeah, I daydream a lot).
Two. Favorite musical group right now?
Ummm … I can’t choose one. So I’m going to give my top five musical people/groups:
- Gabrielle Aplin
- The East Pointers
- Mumford and Sons
Three. Ebook or Hard Cover?
Hardcover … I’ve gotten MUCH better at reading eBooks for both convenience sake and as a money saving method … but I will always prefer a physical copy
Four. Release of 2019 you are looking most forward to?
The Gentleman’s Guide to Getting Lucky by Mackenzi Lee — There are A LOT of books I’m excited for this year … but this is the one I was most shocked to see! Originally, you could only get his if you pre-ordered her second book due to some issues with publishers and what not. However, Lee’s now able to grant the rest of the world the opportunity to buy and read this … YAY!!!!
Five. Do you have any hobbies besides reading?
Contrary to popular believe, I actually do!! I love nature walking and exploring places, re-watching Friends (which is probably what I’ll be doing until the day I pass on from this world), rollerblading, movie watching, hanging out with friends, yoga and strength training.
Six. Any other family members that read too?
My mom and dad are both readers as well — more picky than I am, but they enjoy quite a range of genres. Though my dad is a slow reader (like … real, slow), he does love to go to bed with a nice book in hand to fall asleep to. My mom, on the other hand, is a fast reader like I am — you can tell when she loves a novel because she WILL sit and finish it in one day. She lost a lot of her reading time when she had my brother since he needs constant care, but she’s been reading a lot more now!
Seven. What was the last book you DNF’d?
Lexi’s War by Rosie James — I received this on NetGalley and was SO EXCITED for this; unfortunately, I was let down HARD. I found the writing really bad and the content just so utterly boring.
Eight. Do you frequent your local library? Why or Why not?
No, not really. The library that was close to me closed down (they’re planning to build a bigger one) and it had some questionable people — as in, searching REALLY inappropriate content on the computer that EVERYONE could see. When I was in university, I used to LIVE in the libraries … I loved studying and working on projects in them, or just to relax.
Right now, I basically go to Chapters to sit and read. The people are super chill about customers doing that, and I actually find visiting Chapters a form of therapy for my anxiety ha-ha!
Nine. Name a book that you hated but every one else loved!
The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater — As I’ve mentioned before, I didn’t HATE this series nor this book … it just wasn’t my cup of tea. The writing style was VERY odd for me, which it what ultimately turned me off.
Ten. If you could re-read only one book over and over again, which book would you choose?
The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee — If this was book series and not one book, it would probably be the Harry Potter novels. However, I can’t choose just ONE to re-read. This is one of those books that I honestly will never forget about and will constantly recommend to people. The plot, character development and creation, exploration and overall vibe of the book’s just wonderful!
Eleven. Villain or Hero?
I’m assuming this means do I prefer villains or heroes, not which I would want to be. Entertainment wise, it honestly depends. For instance, I love the villain’s (not saying name since it’s a spoiler) POV in Aveyard’s Red Queen series and Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But I also love heroes as well, such as Harry from Rowling’s Harry Potter series.
To be frank, I would actually choose anti-hero. I LOVE characters will more moral complexities and who aren’t BAD but not GOOD. The cast in Guardians of the Galaxy, most of the main characters in Bardugo’s Six of Crows, a LOT of the characters in Deadpool, Catwoman from the DC Universe … those are the types of characters that I’m most intrigued by.
Okay … at this point … I have NO idea who I have and haven’t nominated … so I’m REALLY sorry but I’m not nominating this time around — I do plan to go through and check so I know for future, but I’m SUPER busy in both my blogging and non-blogging life ha-ha!
However, if you HAVEN’T been nominated yet — I officially nominate you!
