QUESTION 1:IF YOUR LIFE WERE A BOOK GENRE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
My life would probably be one of those cautionary tale YA novels, lol. But I wish it was magical realism. The grounded and normal is much more interesting when there’s a twist to it that makes for limitless, otherworldly possibilities.
QUESTION 2:WHAT VILLAIN FROM A BOOK DO YOU IDENTIFY WITH THE MOST?
There are so many intriguing villains. Honestly “intriguing villain” would probably be on a list of my favored reading features. Choosing Warner from the Shatter Me series for this because he makes a couple decisions that are not in his best villainous interest, all because he’s fascinated with the good guys in the story (hopefully that’s not a spoiler, he makes it clear pretty early.) Just like how I often hope for villains in a story to make serious leeway if I’m fascinated by them!
QUESTION 3:WHAT PROTAGONIST ARE YOU MOST SIMILAR TO?
This is a manga/anime example but Tsukimi from Princess Jellyfish. I have literally everything in common with this character. We have the same unconventional preference in guys, even look the same and wear the same kind of clothes, all I’d have to do to cosplay as her is roll out of bed, lol.
QUESTION 4:WHICH BOOK DID YOU CONNECT WITH, IN THE PAST THAT YOU NO LONGER DO?
Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen. I read it and enjoyed it greatly so many years ago. At the time I was determined to read other similar-sounding middle grade/almost YA books like Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty and Angus, Thongs, and Perfect Snogging by Louise Rennison. There are still a ton of YA I’m interested in but most are more recent titles. Very few late 90s to very early 2000s YA or almost-YA still interest me, which is kind of funny since I should have more in common with those characters having been a teen at the time.
QUESTION 5:WHAT RECENT BOOK READ WOULD YOU LOVE TO BE A CHARACTER IN?
This question has made me realize that practically everything I’ve read this year takes place in locations that seem too dangerous to be fun. A Game Of Thrones? Desolate and deadly. The Cruel Prince? The fae sound snooty and I’d probably be a deprived human. A Court Of Thorns And Roses? Some areas sound beautiful but they’re on the brink of destruction so…
I’m choosing the more muggle-free corners of Harry Potter.
I will live my Hufflepuff life in peace, thanks. (According to the Hogwarts house quiz I took at least 3 times, I would be a Slytherin, but I want to be a Hufflepuff! T_T)
QUESTION 6:HOW DO YOUR READING HABITS SHOW OFF YOUR PERSONALITY?
I’d read nearly any genre ever, so I’m guessing a lot. 😀
QUESTION 7:WHAT BOOK TAUGHT YOU SOMETHING ABOUT YOURSELF?
Definitely The Wind Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami. More about that in a future review. I hope I can make any sort of coherent effort to explain why but the descriptions and metaphors expressing the futile tragedies of war (but also, how sadly impossible pacifism seems as anything but a dream) reflects how I feel about that topic.
