At the end of last month I celebrated my one year blogiversary by announcing a Q&A. I didn’t realize just how many questions I would end up getting so I’ve decided to separate them into parts as well as categories. Part 1 and 2 are both going to be book questions as I got more book questions than anything and putting them all into one post would make for a very long post. And then Part 3 is going to be the blog related and random questions I received.
Also, there were a few questions that were very similar to each other or exactly the same. For those, I answered them by whoever asked the question first. If you don’t see your questions in this post then be on the lookout for the other ones because they’ll be in one of them. 😊
Thanks so much to everyone who asked me questions! Be sure to check out all of their blogs. 💕
Now onto Part 1 –
- Is there a genre that you don’t usually read, but would like to try more of?
I don’t usually read mysteries/thrillers but ever since I read Last Seen Leaving I’ve wanted to try to read more. I have so many on my TBR but it’s getting myself to put down the fantasy reads and actually read them that is the problem. 😂
- Other than The Bone Season what has been the best book/series you’ve discovered thanks to blogging?
Can I pick two? I’m going to pick two. 😝
Back when A Court of Mist and Fury released everyone was raving about it which led to me picking up A Court of Thorns and Roses. It’s since become an all-time favorite series of mine. And then, of course, I have to include A Darker Shade of Magic (even though I’m still reading the series) because I picked it up due to a few recommendations (you know I mean your’s and Reg’s 😂) and loved it so much. Definitely two that I might not have read if it wasn’t for blogging.
- If you could travel to any location, real or fictional, where would you go and why?
See, my go-to answer for this at one point would have been Velaris from A Court of Mist and Fury but recently I’ve had a mad case of wanderlust for Red London from A Darker Shade of Magic. The main reason why is because of the way V.E. Schwab describes it. Especially the Night Market and the Isle. Seriously, can someone make it possible to travel into a book? (Let’s see how many times I mention The Bone Season, ACOMAF, and ADSOM…)
- If you could have one kind of clairvoyant power (from TBS series) what would you pick and why?
I love this question so much! If I could have any voyant power from TBS it would be Warden’s, I would want to be an Oneiromancer. I just find it neat how his voyance deals with memories and even though it can be an invasion of privacy it’s also something he can use to help ease someone’s mind when it comes to certain memories. Which we’ve seen him do twice in the series so far. Plus, I have a really good memory and think it would suit me for that fact. 🙈
- If you had the power to change one thing about TBS series what would you pick and why?
I had to think about this one for a long time because there is next to nothing I would change about The Bone Season. However, there is one tiny thing – Zeke’s decision in The Mime Order, I would change that. I can’t say why without giving a spoiler for people that haven’t read the series yet but anyone who has will know why.
- If you had the opportunity to read one book again for the very first time what would you pick (not TBS though, I feel that’s an obvious answer for you)?
You know me too well, Beth! I so would have picked The Bone Season! 😂 But since I can’t, the one other book I would love to read again for the very first time is City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. It would be amazing to experience meeting those characters for the first time again and learning the world.
- What is your favourite quote of all time? Could be a book or otherwise one, any quote at all.
I’m not sure if I have one all time favorite quote but rather a ton that I consider favorites. One of my favorites happens to be –
“To the people who look at the stars and wish.”
“To the stars who listen – and the dreams that are answered.”
– A Court of Mist and Fury, Sarah J. Maas
- Would you rather never be able to read your favourite series ever again, or never be able to read any books yet to be released?
But how am I supposed to choose since The Bone Season is a series that has books yet to be released and is also my favorite series? If I choose the second option then I would never know what happens to them and if I choose the first I couldn’t read the series at all. I can’t pick. (If there is an exception and I can read The Bone Season books still yet to be released then I choose the second option.)
- If you could have one fictional job, what would it be?
I’m going with Shadowhunter. Although, I’m completely unathletic in real life and they have to be all good at fighting and weapons so I would probably be terrible at being a Shadowhunter. I can dream, though, right? 😂
- Which two characters would you invite to a sleepover?
Inej and Nina from Six of Crows! I feel like they would be so much fun to hang out with and if I could be a part of any friendship from any book it would be their friendship.
- Do you ever read a book a day?
Once upon a time, I had the ability to read a book in a day but now I almost never can. There are those rare occasions but between work and my own slow reading (especially with fantasy) I’m usually lucky if I read a book in a week. 🙈
- What makes you decide to buy a book?
I’m a hype reader so nine times out of ten what makes me decide to buy a book is whenever everyone is raving about it and it sounds interesting to me. Then also whenever I’m actually going to read it. I’ve been trying to only buy books whenever I’m going to read them soon.
- From all the books you have read, where do you want to visit the most? And least?
Since I already answered the most half of this in Beth’s question I’m just going to do the least. The one book world I want to visit the least is probably The Bone Season. I mean I adore those books but I do not want to visit a world ruled by a puppet government that is controlled by supernatural creatures that want to kill all voyants. Nope. No thank you. Although, I mean if anyone wants to transport Warden out of those books for me I would really like to meet him.
And then never let him go back.
