11 questions from Consu:

Favorite book of 2019

I think it has to be Sadie.

Prettiest cover (doesn’t matter if you didn’t read the book)

I didn’t like Wild Beauty, but I still love the cover.

Three words on a blurb that’d make you buy the book

FRIENDS. TO. LOVERS.

A book you expected more from (doesn’t mean it was bad, it just wasn’t it)

I didn’t think Make Me Bad was bad, but it definitely wasn’t up to my expectations for an R.S. Grey book.

A book you expected nothing from and left you pleasantly surprised

So many! The first one that came to mind was Small Spaces (and its sequel, Dead Voices) by Katherine Arden.

Best library/bookstore you’ve visited (yes, I’m stealing this question)

Best library: Princeton Public Library in Princeton, NJ. Very pretty building, great selection, they will literally obtain any book you ask for in any format you request, huge selection of used books for $1 or $2, tons of events, bestselling author on staff… best library ever.

Best bookstore: A Room of One’s Own in Madison, WI. Really cool layout, owned by a famous author, a donation can get you some pretty well-known ARCs, bonus points for being in my favorite city.

A book to screen adaptation that you loved (or are waiting for)

I saw the movie before I read the book, but I’d have to go with Coraline! They did a great job adapting it.

A book you’d want to see adapted

I’m currently reading Crazy Rich Asians and I’d love to watch the adaptation when I’m done!

Favorite book from a genre you don’t usually read

I don’t read a lot of historical fiction, but I loved Daisy Jones & the Six.

Reasons why you’d DNF a book

I’ll usually only DNF if it’s boring AND badly written, and not in a funny enough way that I can do a good rant review. I’ll also DNF if I don’t get along with the writing style after a couple chapters. I’m trying to get better about DNFing, but it’s still pretty rare for me.

A bookblogger you want to hype and why

Mandy & Sha at Book Princess Reviews for their amazing original tags and their consistently great reviews!

11 questions from Meggan:

If you had to choose a super power to gain and any color to alter your eyes to, which would you choose?

For a superpower, I’d choose teleportation. And if I had to change my eye color, I’d probably go with green.

If you could fly somewhere for 24 hours and money wasn’t an issue, where would you go?

I think I’d like to be relaxing in Costa Rica.

Which shows and/or movies can you watch over and over without being tired of it?

I don’t even know how many times I’ve seen Freaks and Geeks.

What is a book that you’ve read that you will always remember?

I’ve read Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret so many times that I don’t think I’ll ever forget it.

What is your favorite way to relax?

My current favorite method of relaxation is watching an episode of The Office with my boyfriend.

Is there a food you’ve never had but always wanted to try?

Probably, but I can’t think of any off the top of my head!

What kind of books/authors/genres do you like reading?

What is something you used to do regularly and miss?

Blog hop with a lot more frequency. I had a lot of downtime at my old job and could read and comment on a lot of posts while I sat on hold. I have a different job now with basically no downtime and most websites are blocked by the filters, so that’s not really an option anymore. I like my new job a lot more than my old one, but I do miss having all that time.

Cloud watching or stargazing?

Stargazing.

What is one mythological creature that you wish were real?

I don’t even know! Maybe a pegasus.

Is there something you refuse to eat no matter what?

Not really. I mean, I don’t like raw fish, eggplant, or coconut, but given the choice between eating them and starving, I’d pick eating them.


If you want to answer these questions, please feel free! I’d love to see your responses. ❤ What’s your favorite way to relax? Which book cover is your favorite? Let’s talk in the comments!

1 thing this week:

  • I feel like this week has been entirely taken up by work! I have a new project that’s projected to last about six months, so that should be interesting. I also passed the final exam in a course I was taking for my job, and once I take the proctored exam in March, I’ll be adding a new set of letters to the end of my professional credentials.
