Dini’s Questions (Part I)

1) What is your favorite book genre?

Fantasy!

2) What book do you wish would be made into a TV series/movie?

Hmmm well, Pride and Prejudice is already a movie and a TV series, so I will have to go with Uprooted.  But only if it is done right!!

3) You need to escape your house (for some reason) and can only bring 3 books in your bag. What books would you take?

Is my house going to be ok? Are we talking about the 3 books I would want to read? Or my 3 most sentimental books?  If the later I would probably take scrapbooks or the Pride and Prejudice edition my Grandma gave me.  If the former then I would take the complete works of Jane Austen, (Ha! 7 books in 1!) Harry Potter, and Uprooted!

4) Why did you start a book blog?

It was really just a whim.  I had been writing reviews on Goodreads and stumbled across a review that had a link to a blog post and I thought it was something I might like to do too!

5) What was your last 5-star read and why?

The Queen of Nothing! And because it was amazing!

45162577

6) What’s a destination you want to visit because of a book you read?

Scotland! Because Scottish romances are my favorite!

7) If you could read any book again for the first time, which book would it be and why?

Pride and Prejudice because I would love to be surprised and taken in all over again.

8) Do you read books in another language? If yes, what language?

I don’t, I only know English and I’m not motivated enough to learn a second language.

9) Which fictional character do you think is most like you?

This one is super tough! There are a lot of characters I want to be like, but very few like me?  Maybe Cath from Fangirl? But my anxiety isn’t nearly as bad as hers and I don’t write, fanfic or otherwise.

10) Which fictional world would you most like to visit or live in and why?

The world of Harry Potter! (Post Voldy, of course)

11) What popular book and/or author do you hate?

Will Ferrell! Oh wait that wasn’t the question.  Ummm I don’t really have a popular book and/or author that I hate? Unless Old man and the Sea or Lord of the Flies count? I hated them but idk if they are really “popular”

Dini’s Questions (Part II)

1) If you could get an ARC of any one of your most anticipated releases, which would it be?

I don’t actually have any anticipated releases right now.  All the books I was looking forward to have recently been released.

The Wife.  Psychological thrillers just aren’t really my thing.

3) What is a book or series that you feel is overrated?

The Mortal Instruments.  (Plus the extended universe) Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed these books, but there are just too many of them and I never finished all of them, so I didn’t love them that much.

4) What is a book that you always recommend to everyone?

Pride and Prejudice

I really want to visit Scotland! I’m sure I could find a movie set there haha but I am being lazy.

Pride and Prejudice

8) Would you only check out books from libraries or buy all your books new for the rest of your life?

Buy all my books.  I used to use the Library all the time growing up, but as an Adult I haven’t been to a library in years and just buy all my books. (Tho I admit I should probably start going to the library again!)

Late at night. From like 10pm-1am

Powell’s in Oregon! Its the best bookstore ever!!!
