Lori’s Questions

Do you have any weird pet peeves?
I don’t think I really have any weird pet peeves, but it does really stress me out and make me kind of cranky when there are a lot of dirty dishes in the sink.

Which celebrity would you like to meet?
Taylor Swift, but I would probably pass out. More realistically, Jack Antonoff. I’d probably just come close to passing out and not actually do it.

What’s your favorite childhood book?
I read all of Tamora Pierce’s books over and over and over again when I was younger! Her Song of the Lioness series was my favorite.

Have you picked up any new habits while being quarantined?
I’ve been baking a lot more (currently obsessed with making cinnamon rolls) and I’ve been cross stitching a lot!

If you could meet one fictional character, who would it be? Why?
I want to meet Lucy from The Hating Game! She’d be so much fun to hang out with.

What is the title of the best book you’ve read this year?
So far, probably Catch and Kill!

What food will you absolutely not, under any circumstances, eat?
I don’t think there are any foods that I would absolutely not under any circumstances eat, but I certainly would not be picking up eggplant unless I had to. There’s just something about the texture that I cannot handle.

Please feel free to consider yourself tagged and answer these questions if you’d like! Which celebrity would you like to meet? Do you have any new quarantine hobbies? Let’s talk in the comments!

Laura Beth’s Questions

What is your dream novel, or idea for a novel?
My dream novel would be a romance (obviously). Two of my favorite tropes are friends-to-lovers and relationships developing through text messages, so it would definitely have to feature that. Neither of the characters think the relationship is going to happen, but then it just kind of does and there’s none of that “oh, but what about our friendship???” nonsense. It also has to have just enough slow burn and sexual tension to drive me crazy without being over-the-top.

Which fictional world would you want to live in?
I’ve said it before, but I’d love to live in Red London from V.E. Schwab’s Shades of Magic series.

What is your preference: The beach, or the mountains?
If I get a cozy cabin and don’t need to do any actual hiking, I’d go with the mountains. If I’m expected to enjoy the setting, I’d go with the beach.

What is your favorite vacation memory?
I think every trip I’ve taken to Tennessee has been my favorite. I have great memories of visiting Dollywood, seeing a Christmas light show in Nashville, and just doing fun things like ice skating and axe throwing. ❤

Where is one place in your state or area you’ve never visited?
I’ve lived in New Jersey for the last seven years of my life and I think I’ve done most of the touristy things here by now. One place that people talk about visiting that I haven’t done yet is Hershey, PA. It’s not super close to me, but it’s also not too far away.

What was your favorite toy when you were younger?
Probably my Beanie Babies! Unsurprisingly, I had all the cats.

Which fictional character would you want to date?
I definitely prefer my real, living, breathing boyfriend over fictional characters, but if I absolutely had to choose a fictional character to date… I might go with Michael Phan from The Kiss Quotient.

7 questions from me:

  1. What’s your favorite city to visit?
  2. If someone gave you $50 and dropped you in a bookstore right now, what would you buy?
