What do you enjoy most about blogging?
I definitely enjoy interacting with other readers more than anything else. I love the sense of community we all share and the connections we make through our love of books.
What do you find the hardest about blogging?
Definitely finding time to blog. This summer I’ve had very little internet access and it’s been very poor when I have had it so currently the hardest thing about blogging is getting posts written and published. And similarly it’s the same issue during the school term as I have less time to read and I like putting out a healthy dose of book reviews, which isn’t often possible anymore.
What books have been on your TBR list the longest?
I’ve wanted to read The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis for a really long time and also Reverie by Erin Hanson, which is a book full of poems from The Poetic Underground, which is Hanson’s Tumblr page. It has to be some of my favorite poetry ever.
Winter or Summer?
Well, where I live we only have two seasons, wet and dry. And our ‘winter’ is probably my favorite time of year at home just because it’s a couple degrees cooler and everyone is more relaxed and typically on holiday. But technically it’s summer all year round so definitely summer over winter.
What would be your dream holiday?
Oh, I don’t even know where to start here, haha. My dream holiday is one filled with friends, family, good food, travel, and books. I’d really like to do a holiday with World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF) as you basically get free room and board in exchange for gardening/farm work and it’s international so you can go to almost anywhere you’ve ever wanted to visit and experience different cultures.
If you could live in any book universe, which one would it be?
I really like the world of Red London from ADSOM by V.E. Schwab but I’m tempted to say the world from The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, just so I could visit the circus haha.
Which book character is most likely to be your best friend?
Nina from the Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo. We’ve been over this before!
What was the last thing you Googled?
Someone suggested I watch Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt so that’s my most recent google search, though I can’t start watching it until I’m back home with actual working wifi.
Paperback or hardback?
I don’t like how easily paperbacks get bent but hardbacks are more difficult to hold open when I’m falling asleep way past bedtime so I’d say it’s a fifty fifty sort of thing.
I’m a massive fan of tiramisu but it has to be done just right.
What is your most anticipated release of 2017? (could be film, book, TV show, etc)
I’m excited for the second seasons of both Victoria and The Durells to be out on Masterpiece Theater. And I’m really looking forward to Leigh Bardugo’s next book, The Language of Thorns, which is going to be a collection of short stories from the Grishaverse. Oh and definitely One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake.
Where do you usually buy your books?
I like to go to Barnes & Noble once or twice a year when I’m in the US and buy about 10 books each time. I don’t really have many options on where to buy books except airport bookstores but yeah, Barnes & Noble is definitely a favorite.
