Question Time!

What is your most anticipated release for 2021?

Oh! Start off with a hard one… I’m really looking forward to These Feathered Flames, and Empire of the Vampire and so so many more.

What is a genre that you most want to try?

I wouldn’t really say there is one I want to try, mainly because I read the genre’s that i’m interested in now. I would like to get back into crime/thrillers, because I tend to read more SFF atm.

What do you prefer: A book that makes you laugh or cry?

Laugh because crying can be awfully awkward depending on where you are… I’ve been caught at work and on the bus/train, and I am a weeper so it’s never just a few little tears, I bawl.

Where is your favourite place to read?

Anywhere I can get comfy really. I usually read in bed, or on the couch snuggled under a blanket.

If you were to write your own novel, what genre would it be?

I actually started one ages ago. It was a NA fantasy, I think I wrote about 5 chapters and then kind of lost my way. Maybe I’ll have another look at it over the Christmas break because I really liked the premise.

What is the best book you have read in 2020?

I really really struggle to pick one for these but I’ll have to go for a recent read and pick These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong. It was amazing and one of the best debut’s I’ve ever read.

What is your favourite thing about being a book blogger?

I think it has to be interacting with other bloggers. I don’t really have a lot of ‘bookish’ friends so,before blogging, I had no one to scream about books at. Luckily now I have people who just want to talk about books with me and it’s great.

What character do you think embodies your personality?

I always think I’m more of an amalgamation of characters than just one, but I would have to pick Nina Zenik. I love food, and have been told I can be a bit of a flirt.

Do you watch Booktube? If so, who is your favourite bookuber?

I don’t, and I really should so hit me up with your faves and I’ll check them out.

If you were to run your own book subscription box what would the theme be? What books/items would you feature?

I think I would do an adult SFF style books because there are so many book boxes that focus on YA when there are some brilliant adult books out there. Item’s wise I would maybe stick towards household items; candles, tea towels, mugs etc.

Surprise! You’ve inherited a bookstore. What do you name it?

I have always dreamt of owning a bookshop called ‘Take me to your reader’ with a cafe next door called ‘take me to your feeder’ 😂. Terrible and punny I know, but people could rent/buy books and then head to the cafe next door for food/drinks… I would love a bookshop like that!

  1. Omg LOL your cafe and bookstore names are SO GOOD! 😂 I would be a constant presence in both places for sure! Also, yes to Empire fo the Vampire! I’m SO EXCITED FOR IT and was so gutted when it was pushed to next year but I’m also kind of glad considering how 2020 has gone 🙃 I also totally love the idea of an adult SFF subbox and it would definitely be a unique box in the world of mostly YA boxes! But I’d definitely subscribe to something like that too. I don’t watch a lot of booktube either but I did stumble across one booktuber and her name is Noelle Gallagher and her channel is so good! She’s so entertaining, I love her voice (LOL not to sound creepy or anything) and she does cover a wide range of books but defo more contemporary than SFF. Quite a few thrillers/mysteries (also classics)! 10/10 would recommend!

    • Hahaha thanks Dini! I’m all for a good pun and they were just too good to resist. Agreed about EOTV, plus it gives us something to look forward too after this hellhole of a year 😂. Thanks for the Rec, I’ll definitely go and check them out. I’m trying to get a little more into contemporary/thrillers again so she sounds perfect! ☺️
