(Yes I am many months late with this…let’s just ignore that).
A CHARACTER APPEARANCE THAT YOU MISREAD OR IMAGINED DIFFERENTLY?
I ALWAYS think Jace from TMI has blue eyes.(His eyes are gold)
And I always forget Cammie from Gallager Girls is meant to be light brown / bleached – I always think its brown for some reason.
I’m sure there are more, but I’m blanking.
A CHARACTER NAME YOU’VE BEEN PRONOUNCING WRONG?
Everything written by Sarah J Maas.
I’m bad at names at the best of times – I’ve mostly begun mumbling the names and recognizing them without being able to say them.
AN OVERUSED TROPE THAT IS YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE?
Enemies to lovers – its the sort of slow-burn / a little angsty mostly fluffy romance I like in my contemporaries.
See also – friends to lovers.
I also love villain redemption arcs – but I never see those EVER – I need more of them.
A CLICHE CHARACTER TYPE THAT YOU LIKED BETTER SEEING ON-SCREEN THAN READING ABOUT?
Honestly, most side/best friend characters are hilarious on screen but fall flat and 2-dimensional in books.
A WORD/PHRASE THAT YOU LEARNED BECAUSE OF ITS USE IN A BOOK?
This is the first word that came to my brain for this question, because little 4th grade me learn it from Twilight and had to continuously explain why I knew such a high level word at age 9.
HAVE YOU EVER NOT READ/NOT COMPLETED A READING REQUIREMENT FOR SCHOOL?
I gave up on The Count of Monte Cristo – I have powered though many an assignment but I couldn’t. It was too long, I was too bored. I read sparksnotes.
HAVE YOU EVER (OR HAVE WANTED TO) SKIPPED A CHAPTER FROM THE POINT OF VIEW YOU WEREN’T INTEREST IN?
I’ve looked ahead to when the characters I liked more would appear – for example, looking for Annabeth or Percy POV for Heroes of Olympus – but I’ve never flat out skipped.
HAVE YOU EVER CANCELLED SOCIAL PLANS TO READ A BOOK?
More often then not I bring my book with me and ignore my social plan companions though.
(I swear I do have social skills)
