1 – Have you ever felt so identified with a character that you end up picturing it as yourself?
I just posted my review of You Know Me Well and w-o-w how I related to Mark so much. Although, I didn’t picture him as myself, I just knew exactly how he was feeling, and it felt so real and so validating!
2 – What thoughts do you have about ARCs?
I think they’re a great way to spread the word about up-coming books. I know there’s a lot of controversy around them, but when used for good and intended purposes I think they are a good thing.
3 – Do you think that a person who gives 5 stars to everything reads is questionable? What’s your thought about giving low ratings?
Ehhhh, a little bit. How can you love everything you read? Unless they really critically pick out every book and just know they’ll love it, but that’s a lot of work, so probably not, I wouldn’t trust their opinions.
I think low ratings are valid. If someone doesn’t like a book and rates a book low, I think it’s fair.
4 – Name 3 book bloggers that inspire you!
Well, this is SO hard because so many inspire me, and Sofii, you my dear, are definitely an inspiration!
Kirstin @Kirsten Kraves Books. Everything about her blog from her lists (which I love so much) to all the memes she participates in, and her gorgeous Instagram photos! 😍Plus, to top it off she’s such a lovely person.
Jenna @Bookmark Your Thoughts. JENNA! She is the sweetest thing, like EVER! I honestly don’t think I’ve met someone so sweet. Her blog is so well thought out and it looks so beautiful, her bullet journals are so pretty, and also her beautiful Instagram photos 😍
Marie @Drizzle & Hurricane Books. I love reading Marie’s blog… not only does she co-blog with her sister, which I think is the cutest thing! Her whole blog aesthetic is SO adorable, and she is such a pleasant and fun person to talk to.
5 – Can an author’s reputation affect your thinking about their books?
Sometimes. If the author is a bad person, it really deters me from wanting to purchase ay of their work… I may still read it from the library, but I won’t buy it. So I guess, yes it can.
- On the spot: favourite book from your favourite genre?
- Favourite book of 2019?
- Can an author’s reputation affect your thinking about their books? (I like this question so I’m going use it)
- Any end of the year goals you’re striving for?
- Have you started thinking about your 2020 goals (if you make them)?
Okay, I’m not going to nominate 10-20 but just a few:
