Liebster Award(s)

Hey guys!

Okay, I know, I know, I’m way behind on my tags but I was not in the right space of mind at the time, BUT not to worry, I’m back on track! Thank you so very much to The Books Are Everywhere & Minty Freshie for nominating me! I will be answering questions from both of these blogs respectively.

The Books Are Everywhere Questions:

The Rules

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Answer the 11 questions they gave you.
  3. Nominate 11 blogs.
  4. Give them 11 questions to answer.

1. How do you get out of a reading slump?

So I don’t really have a cut and dried method or anything but watching book-tube videos really does help me when I get into a reading slump!

2. Which 3 books would you take out with you on a desert island?

  1. The Martian by Andy Weir -just because the situation would be similar (sort of?)
  2. A Game of Thrones & A Clash of Kings by George R .R. Martin ’cause these books are HUGEEE, so I’d spend much more time reading these than I would if I read a John Green book, for instance. There’s not much to do on a desert island, I assume. 

3. Name a book you want to burn

Easy peezy: Obsidian (Book #1 in the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout). I could physically not read the entire book so maybe it gets better? But the main guy was too full of himself so yeah.

4. Name a lesser-known book you love!

I have not had the chance to read this book yet but I think I would love United States of Japan by Peter Tieryas. This is an alternate-history fiction, where Japan won the WW2 instead of the U.S. Sounds really interesting.

5. Which book do you love the setting of?

The Outlander by Diana Gabaldon because SCOTLAND! *insert heart eyes*

6. Which OTP do you hate?

Tris and Four from the Divergent series. SORRY, FELLOW-FANGIRLS!

7. Name a song you associate with your favorite book.

The Hunger Games & I don’t wanna die by Hollywood Undead.

8. Where do you love to read?

On the train!

9. What do you love to snack on while you’re reading?

Always a Grande Coffee Frappuccino with no whipped cream from Starbucks. #Basic

10. Talk about a bookish world you want to explore

Definitely Furthermore and Ferenwood from Tahereh Mafi’s middle-grade fantasy book, Furthermore. SO WHIMSICAL AND MAGICAL!

11. What’s your favorite LGBTQIA+ read?

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. I feel like I would love Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe too when I get a chance to read it.
