A few days ago, I posted my frantic excitement over getting 500 FOLLOWERS!!
And I send I wanted to do a Q&A, luckily, some very lovely people asked me some very lovely questions, so lets get to this!!
Orangutan Librarian – who recently hit 900 followers go them! – Asked all their followers:
What are you most excited for right now?
The cruise I’m going on over the winter break. My cousin and I are zip-lining!
Waffles or donuts?
Waffles if they’re made right. Delicious and you don’t feel as sick after eating four of them.
If I was to say “home” what’s the first book that comes to mind?
I want to be cute and say Harry Potter. But really, I’d think “The True Meaning of Someday” since the movie “Home” (which is sister is obsessed with) is based on it.
What type of undead creature would you be and why? (aka vampire/ghost/whight/phantom/reincarnated squirrel…)
Phantom. Mostly because it seems like it would be the most fun.
What famous person would you most like to play poker with? Would you win?
I royally suck at poker. I would subject no one to that. I would play with Alex Kingston and Jared Padaleki though, because my blog is named after their characters and I want to meet them. I would lose so bad though.
What is/would be the best version of monopoly?
I have never finished a game of monopoly. I hate it in all its forms.
What’s your favourite thing about winter?
We don’t have “winter” per say where I live. It has yet to drop below 70. It is literally colder inside (54 degrees in my epidemiology class and I’m dying).
So I’ll say holidays? Thats the only winter thing I’ve experienced.
They also asked me some wonderful questions!
If you could time travel to any time, where would you go?
Future. Like, Star Trek times.
And what was your least favourite book of 2016?
Anthem by Ayn Rand. I read it for school and wow did I HATE it!
Also the last good book you read, cos why not?
Um… Not really a book its a novella but Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell. Just finished it, and right after watching Rogue One as well! Now I really want to re-watch the original trilogy…
One Bookish Girl asked:
If you could have dinner with 3 people dead or alive, who would you pick?
That is so unfairly difficult!
Um…off the top of my head:
-J K Rowling
Top 5 books you read in 2016.
-The Raven King
-A Study in Charlotte
-The Princess Bride
-Because You’ll Never Meet Me
A book you think everyone should read?
Because You’ll Never Meet Me!
Avani The Nerd asked:
Butter Chicken with Curry Rice
(and grape leave rolls)
Shaun Kellett asked:
What’s your favourite NON-BOOK related thing to do with your free time?
Watching Netflix. I’m pretty boring.
What is your favorite thing about the blogging community? And what do you think could be improved?
My favorite thing is that everyone is always nice, always understanding. Never rude about typos, or different opinions, or late postings.
I do think we tend to fall into patterns. Everyone reading the same books, reviewing the same books, doing the same tags. Not a lot of discussions. It would be cool if people talked more, discussed more.
Is there a book you hate, but everyone loves, and vice versa?
The Delirium series for one. I just can’t with it, but everyone seems to love it!
All I can think of for the second is Twilight, today everyone seems to hate it but I still love it!
Question: Have you ever read Webtoons before?
Never. A few friends want me to read Homestuck if that counts?
Now that you hit 500 followers, what is your next blogging goal?
Find a regular blogging schedule that ACTUALLY WORKS because I am actually the worst.
If you had one Disney character to take with you to space which character would it be and why?
Stitch. He’s always been my favorite and he’s an alien so…
Lair of Books asked:
Which 3 Fictional characters would you invite to a tea party?
We could have a book club!
Books ‘n’ Reviews Oh My asked:
My question is, is there a book you were very excited about reading, but once you did, you ended up not liking it?
Captain America: Sub Rosa. Love the avenger, hated the book.
