Another ray of sunshine fell on Reading Under the Blankie, this time from Amy.
I had a lot of fun answering Morgana’s questions last time, so here we go again!
So, how does this work?

List the rules and display the sunshine blogger award logo in your post/or on your blog
#1 What’s the perfect day for you?
Any day that starts with me not having to go to work has the potential to become the perfect day. As long as there’s no sudden zombie apocalypse or a natural disaster, chances are that it remains a perfect day. Friends are always welcome to join, and if we get to chill out on a beach, even better! Fluffy kitty hugs help too.
#2 What was your last 5 star read and what made it great?
After consulting Goodreads, it appears that my last 5 star read was The Sea Was a Fair Master by Calvin Demmer. I didn’t expect a collection of flash fiction to be so good, but seriously, it was horrifying and hilarious at the same time.
#3 Do you prefer series or standalones?
No preference, really. Standalones are good for my commitment issues, but if I love a series, I will enjoy taking time getting back into it. It might take me years though, but we won’t mention that little detail.
#4 Do you read multiple books at the same time, or do you read one at a time?
It’s a recent thing, but yes, occasionally I have two books going at the same time. Like when a review copy is only available in a format I can only read on my computer, I will pick something else to read in bed and when I’m out and about.
#5 Do you have any book regrets?
#6 Who are the 3-6 guys in your harem? You can only choose characters from books, and only one character from each book.
Well, I’m not sure I’m the harem sort of girl… I can just see this situation getting out of hand pretty quickly and me ending up with six guys waiting for dinner every night, and expecting me to wash their socks and iron their underpants. I’ll pass.
On the other hand, I totally wouldn’t mind having an entourage!
I’d love to have Kvothe (The Name of the Wind) around for witty banter and musical entertainment, Dale “Barbie” Barbara (Under the Dome) so that he can make his mean burgers when we are having barbecues, Wade Watts (Ready Player One) to play video games together, and Frank Porter (Since You’ve Been Gone) for workout buddy.
#7 If you could spend the day with any fictional character, who would you choose and what would you be doing?
I wouldn’t mind investigating some mystery with Bill Hodges, the retired detective from Mr. Mercedes.
#8 If you could only read one more book for the rest of 2018, which book would you choose?
Harsh! I’d probably sniff with indignation and resort to watching series and not read at all, just to show ’em. (Whoever they are…)
But I’d probably take a sneak peak at The Consuming Fire by John Scalzi once it’s out in October.
#9 Do you ever review audio books?
I only finished one audio book, but I haven’t reviewed it. Yet. I think I probably will…? Or maybe I won’t! *shrugs*
I’m keeping you on your toes, guys. I know, the suspense is getting unbearable.
#10 What are three non book related things, you want to share about yourself?
I love my rib eye steak medium, with sweet potato fries and mushroom sauce.
Deadlifts are my favourite way to show my butt who’s boss.
A lot of people seem to be under the impression that I’m taller than I really am, and are surprised when they find out I’m 5’2″. Must be some kind of sorcery…
#11 If you could choose any books series to be made into a TV series, which one would you choose and who would play the hero and heroine?
I love Nordic Noir both in books and on telly, and would absolutely love to see the Malin Fors series on Netflix.
Synnøve Macody Lund would be awesome as the haunted detective, and Corey Stoll as her partner, Detective Zeke Martinsson.
Again… don’t feel you guys need to answer, but I’d love to hear from…
