Three facts about me:
- I don’t have a middle name.
- I have just graduated from university.
- I hate group projects, they are the worst.
1. Are there any tropes in books that you go out of your way to avoid, what are they?
The only one that comes to my mind is love triangles. They can be done well, but that is a very rare case. When I find out a book has a love triangle I’m much more reluctant to read it. I need to find out what other people think of how the trope was handled and most of the time their opinion isn’t positive. So I stay away from those books. I don’t think I have any other tropes that I avoid, as I’m willing to give them all a try.
(Or at least no other trope is coming to my mind right now.)
2. If you could take the place of one book character, and live out their role in said book, who would you choose and why?
This is a very hard question. Most of the characters that come to my mind right now I really wouldn’t want to take their place, mostly because they have very hard and dangerous lives.
(It comes with the territory of reading mostly fantasy.) I think I would have to go with Elizabeth Bennet. She is one of my all time favourite female protagonists, plus there wouldn’t be danger of me dying by just being that character. Basically I could handle her life, which is why I’m picking her.
3. Money is no object and you can travel anywhere in the world (the real world, not the fictional one) where would you go first?
In the real world that would be Tokyo, or Japan in general. Because if
(and that is a very strong if) I ever have the opportunity to go to Japan I would love visiting a few different cities. Japan is one of those places that I have wanted to visit for years, so hopefully I’ll be able to do that in the future. (Though who knows, it’s a big and costly trip.)
4. If you could meet on author, dead or alive, who would you choose and why?
I have actually never met an author before. They just don’t come to the places that I live
(hopefully they will in the future). I think the author that I would most like to meet is Victoria Schwab (Leigh Bardugo is a close second). She is one of my all time favourite authors, so obviously I would like to meet her. Plus she seems really nice from the interviews that I have seen and I have heard that other people enjoyed meeting her.
5. FUN/WEIRD Question: Would you rather never be able to go back and read or re-read anything by your favourite authors, or never be able to discover any new authors?
I would have to go with “never be able to discover any new authors“. I’ll still be able to reread my favourite books
(as they tend to be by my favourite authors) and any new book that one of my favourite authors publishes in the future. Though this is a really hard question to answer, as there are so many authors that I want to read from. But I’m sticking with my answer! Or am I? I’m still debating with myself. Being indecisive in these situations is the worst! (Am I exaggerating? Most definitely yes.)
My best blog posts:
This is a question that I find impossible to answer. So far I have posted over 330 posts on my blog. How in the world am I meant to chose the best one?! Plus, how does one measure the best post? Is it because it’s the most viewed, the most interacted with? The one that I’m most proud of? It doesn’t help that I’m indecisive when it comes to things like this.
Instead, here are some of my favourite posts from this year
(well, so far as it is only the end of February):
- My Bad Reading Habits Tag
- End of the Year Survey – 2018
