Now, without further ado let’s get into the questions!
IF YOU WERE THE RULER OF BOOKS…
What book would you make everyone read?
I would definitely make everyone read Animal Farm by George Orwell. It’s a very important and eyeopening book, which everyone should at least read once. I think it depicts society
(or at least a part of it) perfectly and it can be applied to the time that we are living in right now as well. So it’s very important and everyone NEEDS to read it.
What would you abolish in book construction?
Well, quiet a few things are coming to mind when I think about this questions. I think I’m going to be mentioning only two things in this tag.
- Changing the book covers in the middle of the series.
It’s seriously the most infuriating thing and I don’t see the point of it, as it just makes everyone mad. I really hate how they look next to each other, when I know that they are from the same series but they don’t appear to be. I like my series to match, it’s seriously the best.
- All the different sizes of books.
With that I mean when some paperbacks are either taller or shorter than other ones
(the standard size of paperbacks). The same applies to hardbacks as well. I would love it if all were the same height. They would look sooo much better on my shelves and I would really prefer for them to be like that.
What author would you commission to write you any book?
I would make Leigh Bardugo and Victoria Schwab write me ALL THE BOOKS EVER! They are two of my all time favourite authors and I have loved everything they have written
(or I have read by them so far). I wouldn’t even give them any restrictions on what to write, as I’ll read ANYTHING these two write. Just give me all their books!
What book would you demote to the library basement to make room for new books?
What cover artist would you commission to make a mural?
The book covers for The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater are simply stunning! I would love the artist who created them to make me a mural. I haven’t read this series yet, but I do hope to read it some time in the future – as I have heard amazing things about it.
(Plus I already know that I enjoy Maggie Stiefvater’s writing, as I have read some other books by her.)
What characters face would you put on a coin?
Umm…I really don’t know. Probably Nikolai form The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. There are many reasons why I’m choosing him, but I can’t mention them as those would be spoilers. Those who have read this trilogy know why!
What book would you award the “RULER OF BOOKS” 2016 prize to?
I would award it to Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo. Was there any doubt that I would pick this book? I think not. This book was simply fantastic and one of the best books that I have ever read and since it came out last year, it was obvious that i was going to choose it.
