11 questions from Trisha:
If you could live in any sitcom, which would it be?
I think I’d live in New Girl. Can you even imagine how much fun it would be? I’d love to have Jess as my BFF. Hanging out with Nick, Schmidt, Coach, and Winston wouldn’t be too bad, either. (And Ferguson!!)
If money were no object, where would you be living?
I’d be living in a spectacularly awesome apartment in Brooklyn!
If you could INSTANTLY become an expert in anything, what would it be?
Can I say something like… not letting things get to me? I’m usually pretty good at that, but I’ve had trouble letting little things go recently. I was mad for longer than I’d like to admit last Friday because a man was super rude to me at work.
Which one is the first book you ever bought?
I’m not really sure! Probably something by Tamora Pierce, I’d guess. I was always at the bookstore with my mom when I was little.
Let’s be honest, which is that series of books that you know you will not finish?
Most of them! I’m very bad about finishing series. It’s more rare for me to finish a series than it is for me to stop it.
If the place you lived in could only experience ONE season forever, what season would you choose?
Summer. My favorite season is actually spring, but with everything blooming comes a lot of pollen, and it just leads to me sneezing over and over and over and over and over again for weeks. With summer, I get nice weather without all that nonsense.
How many unread books do you own?
Overall, I’m not sure, but I counted 75 in my bedroom a couple days ago.
Which authors are on your auto-buy list?
Jenn Bennett, Krista & Becca Ritchie, and R.S. Grey. There are a ton of authors that I want to read everything from, but not a ton of authors that I’ll actually purchase each time.
What’s your favourite bookish map?
Another question that I’m not sure on! I don’t mind fantasy, but it’s not really my favorite genre. I can’t think of any bookish maps that I was really into off the top of my head.
Which fictional character do you think best represents you?
Maybe Belle from In Bed With the Beast. It’s basically a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, so Belle is a nerdy bookworm who’s lived a pretty sheltered life, and I relate a lot.
11 questions from Alex:
Which author, living or dead, would you invite to your fantasy dinner party?
What is the most popular book or series that you have no intention of reading?
Probably A Song of Ice and Fire? I just have no desire whatsoever to read that series.
Have you ever caused irreparable damage to a book?
Yes, I have dropped books in the bath. 😥 I mean, I guess they dried out, but they look weird.
How do you organise your bookshelves?
My shelves aren’t really organized in any real way. They were sort of a rainbow, but then I decided that I didn’t want to separate series, and it turned out that at least half my books have black spines, so it’s just kind of a jumble right now.
How many unread books do you own?
I just counted a couple days ago and I believe it’s 75!
What is your most anticipated release of 2019?
What is one backlist book you *must* read this year?
Oh, I did a whole post about this in January. I’m not doing too great on reading my backlist books, but I am trying. I’m going to say Vengeful because I was so excited to pre-order it and now it’s just been sitting on my shelf forever.
What was your favourite childhood book?
I had many favorites, but the one that’s best stood the test of time is Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret.
How do you get yourself out of a reading slump?
A minor reading slump can be fixed by picking up some audiobooks or graphic novels. I was in a pretty major reading slump from the end of February until the beginning of April, though, and nothing really pulled me out of it until I just one day got over it.
Which of your blog posts are you most proud of?
I don’t do discussion posts really often, but I usually end up feeling pretty proud of myself when I do. Here are some discussion posts I’ve really enjoyed writing:
- Let’s Talk About: Appropriate interactions on social media
- Let’s Talk About: My spam problem
- Let’s Talk About: Planning out my (blogging) life
What is your favourite book cover?
I always have the same answer for this question, which I guess makes sense since it’s my favorite…
I’ve tagged a ton of people recently, so I’m going to take a little break for now. If you want to answer these questions, though, please feel free! I’d love to see your responses. ❤ If you could live anywhere, where would you live? Which backlist book are you most excited to read this year? Let’s talk in the comments!
