When I was looking for a tag to do, I came across this one. It's created by Beards and Books. This tag It is a perfect tag to catch up with you guys. It has a great variety of questions, so let’s get started.
Q1 - If you could pick a fictional world to live in, what world would you chose and why?
I don’t think there is any world I’d like to live in. Most of the books I read are heartbreaking contemporaries or classics and I don’t want to live in any world (the past doesn’t sound that intriguing to me, except for the landscape side but not the social side of those eras. If I have to choose I think maybe Little Women, because they have an awesome family sister bond and cosiness.
Q2 - What solo book and/or book series surprised you the most?
A recent read would definitely have to be To All The Boys I’ve Love before trilogy by Jenny Han. Never thought I would like this series as much as I did and it has loads of depth in it that I wasn’t expecting. A classic that I end up loving and wasn’t expecting at all was Lady Chatterley’s Lover. I thought it was going to be about sex (because it has been banned for that reason), but it’s not about that and I’m stil thinking about it very regularly. It ended up one of my favorite classics I’ve ever read.
Q3 - You can pick one author to meet, who would you chose and why?
Sarah Dessen, I think. I think she’d be a really cool author to chat with and talk about how she came up with all those stories and to get answers on which of these happen to her (and what characters she knew in real life and who they are based of etc.)
Q4 - If you could only ever read one genre of book for the rest of your life what genre would you chose and why?
Books that can happen in real life. I love realistic books. I didn’t say contemporary for a reason, because I love classics (that are also set in the real world) as well. Kind of cheating because I maybe mixed up two genres? Think so, but yea haha. I love dystopian too, but if you read too much of that genre it can get repetitive and the contemporary genre has many different subjects and sub genres.
Q5 - What genre do you rarely read, but wish you read more?
Definitely science-fiction. I love stories that are set in space, but I end up not reading them as much because I can’t I read it slowly and usually I can’t get really into the story because I can’t relate to it and it confuses me most of the time.
Q6 - What is the most intimidating book or book series you’re too nervous to begin?
Any book over 500 pages probably. I’m most intimidated to read any of the Brontë sisters, because I have so much hop in liking the other books since I loved Jane Eyre, but I’m afraid I might be disappointed. I’m also intimidated by the A Court of Thrones and Roses series, because I heard such mixed reviews (I only have the first two books) and I think I might end up not liking them for some reason.
Q7 - If you had to recommend one book and/or book series above all others what would that be?
There are so many that I love, so it’s hard to recommend just one. If I have to pick one then I guess that would have to be Lady Chatterley’s Lover. That one is just really underrated in my opinion.
Q8 - Final question, what are your reading plans & blog plans for the next six months?
I definitely want to read the Mara Dyer trilogy, The Hate You Give, Fingersmith, Coraline and Landline (I have some others I want to read as much but those will definitely happen). On my blog I have been posting every other Sunday for a few weeks now, so I really want to keep doing that. (If you have suggestions on what to post, please let me know!)
