Howdy! Hope everyone’s doing great.
The Lovely Hannah has cast a lil’ ray of sunshine over here, and I’m thrilled to answer her questions.
#1 What is your current read?
The Last Act of Hattie Hoffman by Mindy Mejia.
#2 How many books have you read this year so far?
Not as many as I wanted to! 16 so far.
#3 What’s your favourite read of 2018?
*sigh* Only one? I had picked ten, because this is not the Highlander where there can be only one.
#4 What’s your most anticipated read of 2019?
The Institute by Stephen King. Ok, seriously, who is surprised?
It’s coming in September, guys!
#5 Do you read with music or read silently?
I can do some background music, sure. Not death metal though, that would be a tad distracting. I usually read in silence, or just listen to rain sounds to drown out noises in the background.
#6 Long books or short books?
Well, I guess it depends. Is it terribly written? Does it have a shitty plot? Because when it comes to those atrocities, even two pages would be too long. On the other hand, if it’s some good shit, we can go on ’til we are done, no matter how long that takes.
#7 What’s your favourite spot to read?
Anything comfy will do. The bed is usually the best. The sofa sounds like a good spot, but you surely haven’t sat on my one yet, cuz it’s anything but…
#8 What’s your favourite type of cake?
#9 Do you pronounce scones as ‘skuns’ or ‘scowns’?
Neither? I say it like ‘cone’ but with an S.
#10 Favourite mythical creature?
Oh, I don’t know… Unicorns are cool, I suppose…
#11 What would be your dream job?
Ok, apart from the obvious, where I get to do whatever the fuck I want all day and still get paid? My friends and I have have this dream that one day we will own a place that is bakery but also a cafe and a bookshop, somewhere on a beach, maybe in Cornwall. It would have a lovely garden with fairy lights, and during summer people would come there to eat, drink, read, and do yoga and meditate. Too much?
Considering my other half would love to move to Greece one day, I could also totally see myself as a skipper, taking tourists on romantic boat trips to watch the sunset.
Well, that’s it! Let’s see if Kelly, Alexandra, Inge, Bookstooge, Kaleena & Morgana are up for a bit of interrogation!
#1 Do you believe in ghosts?
#2 Have you ever sneaked out of the house to go to a party in your wild teen years?
#3 What’s your take on flowery food? (Lavender biscuits, wild flowers in salads, and so on). Yey or nay?
#4 What’s a book that you thought was kind of trashy but you still enjoyed?
#5 Imagine it’s time for a cookie. Do you dip it in milk, sip coffee with it, or munch on it in its dry glory?
#6 Would you say you are a morning person?
#7 Winter sports. Yey or nay?
#8 Has it ever happened that you liked a film or series adaptation of a book? If so, which book was it?
#9 Do you find house chores (cleaning, dish-washing, etc.) relaxing, or necessary evil?
#10 Do you chill in your pjs all day when you don’t need to leave the house?
#11 What was the last book that knocked your socks off?
