Three Facts About Me

  1. I work for a company that manufactures and sells tartan fabrics and kilts.
  2. I have three scars – two from Typhoon Lagoon in Florida and one from the worst bout of sunburn I’ve ever had.
  3. Last week I held a baby for the first time ever and I was terrified. She cried. I don’t blame her.

Jemma’s Question

Which fictional world would you live in?

When I answered Kelly’s Fandom Frenzy prompt I said Hogwarts, but it’d be toss up between there and Pellinor, from Alison Croggon’s series.

If you were a fictional character and had an animal companion tell me about them, they can be a fictional creature too.

I know most people will expect me to say dragon, but I think I’d like a really clever dog. A big fluffy one. In reality I’d probably end up with a cat like my own actual cat: a bit of an idiot and totally unreliable.

What book do you wish you could read for the first time all over again?

PELLINOR.

What is your biggest bookish peeve?

Is movie tie-in covers a peeve? I think they’re U G L Y.

Where is your favourite place to be?

In my house. On the couch. With a G&T and my laptop.

Malanie’s Questions

Name the first book that comes to mind GO

Solitaire by Alice Oseman. It’s the first one in my eye level when I look up!

What’s your favorite TV show of all time?

Doctor Who. It jumped the shark in a BIG way when Stephen Moffat took over but let’s talk about series one through four for a second. Or all day. Whichever you prefer.

Who is your favorite author?

JK Rowling, Laurie Halse Anderson, Alison Croggon.

Do you read ARCs? Favorite ARC you’ve ever received?

I don’t, but I’ve signed up to Netgalley – and then promptly fell ill, so now that I feel like a human again I’m going to actually look into it.

3 book characters who are most like you

Uhhhhhh

  • Hermione Granger – likes learning stuff, spends a lot of her time exasperated with her friends, has a cat.
  • Mia in the Princess Diaries series, because she was the most relatable character I’ve ever found for high school me.
  • Steffi in A Quiet Kind of Thunder, because while I wasn’t COMPLETELY mute in school, I certainly didn’t talk an awful lot until I got to probably my final year. Anxiety, yo.

Favorite animal?

Giraffes. They’re tall and goofy looking. Relatable.

Favorite book character?

Probably Cadvan from the Pellinor series.

Which book do you wish you could forget so you could reread it for the first time again?

The Gift by Alison Croggon. Honestly by this point I’ve likely hyped it up so much that anyone else picking these books up will be like “what is this girl on”.

Favorite book as a child?

I grew up with Harry Potter. The first book came out when I was seven, so I can barely remember what my favourite was before Harry!

Book you wish would be turned into a movie or TV show

The Pellinor series by Alison Croggon…but I know that I have such high expectations that it would have to be almost unrealistically good.

Book you’re really really looking forward to in 2018

Goodbye, Perfect by Sara Barnard, Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi, On The Come Up by Angie Thomas.

My questions:

  1. What’s the best present you’ve ever received?
  2. What song are you listening to right now? (Or what was the last song you listened to?)
  3. What’s your favourite quote from a book ever?
  4. What’s the furthest you’ve ever travelled? (And what was it like!)
  5. Favourite pizza topping?
  6. What top three things do you look for in a book?
  7. What’s the first book you can ever remember reading? (Or having read to you!)
  8. What are you looking forward to most in 2018?
  9. Is there a book out just now that you haven’t read but are DYING to?
  10. If you could meet any author, dead or alive, who would it be?
  11. What made you decide to start blogging?
