Do you get sick while reading in the car?

Even if I’m sitting still I get sick much more if I’m reading. Anything that moves while I’m in it tend to make me dizzy.

Which author’s writing style is completely unique to you and why?

I would also say Tahere Mafi but the style was because of Juliette’s personality. So this time I’ll choose Sui Ishida. I know it’s not a novel per se but I never had read something that is subtly engaging, as if I’m challenged by the writer to rationalize the development happening in the story.

Harry Potter Series or the Twilight Saga? Give 3 points to defend your answer.

I’d say Twilight.

  • I have yet to (or maybe will not) read any Harry Potter book.
  • Twilight is my gateway to reading.
  • I did enjoy it. If I read it now I think my opinion will remain unchanged.

Do you carry a book bag? If so, what is in it (besides books)?

Nope. What does a book bag looks like anyways?

Do you smell your books?

Yes, is that weird?

Books with or without little illustrations?

Depends. For novels I tend to imagine them as real person so if there are illustrations it kind of distract my imaginative process.

What book did you love while reading but discovered later it wasn’t quality writing?

Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow

Do you have any funny stories involving books from your childhood? Please share!

I’m not big fan of reading when I was kid so no funny stories about the child me & reading. But I have lots of funny childhood memories. I love my childhood!

What is the tiniest book on your shelf?

Trust in Me by y J. Lynn (it’s a pocketbook size).

What is the thickest book on your shelf?

Breaking Dawn too before I parted with the copy but now I think it’s Goliath by Scott Westerfeld. Oh, it’s quite heavy as well because the paper is thick.

Do you write as well as read? Do you see yourself in the future as being an author?

I would want to, I have so many ideas, but no writing skills whatsoever.

When did you get into reading?

I think when I was taking my post grad (I am a later bloomer LOL). That was the height of Twilight (New Moon movie) and curiosity got the better of me.

What is your favourite classic book?

Little Lord Fauntleroy by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

In school what was your best subject?

I think Journalism, Biology and Physics. Yes, I was even thinking of taking journalism in college but persuaded by my father to take something else. Back then I was so good with my grammar. *sobs*

Btw I suck at Math, at least ones that don’t allow me to use the calculator.

If you were given a book as a present that you had read before and hated, what would you do?

Take it. I don’t think I have the heart to refuse something that is gifted even though I don’t like it.

What is a lesser known series that you know of that is similar to Harry Potter or the Hunger Games?

I don’t think this series not well-known but for Harry Potter-esque series, I’d say Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer. And for series that is somehow similar to Hunger Games, I think The Forsaken by Lisa M. Stasse comes to mind.

What is a bad habit you always do while blogging?

Not proofreading.

What is your favorite word?

I think Chiara asked me this already: Peach~!

Are you a nerd, dork, or dweeb? Or all of the above?

I’d say geek too!

Vampires or Fairies? Why?

Fairies! Because they’re glittery and cute.

Shapeshifters or Angels? Why?

Angels? Because they are majestic.

Spirits or Werewolves? Why?

Spirits, oh wait maybe werevolves…neither?

Zombies or Vampires? Why?

Vampire, I’d rather be on a blood diet than eat innards of human. Plus the rotting and all.

Love Triangle or Forbidden Love?

A love triangle in a forbidden love.

And finally: Full on romance books or action-packed with a few love scenes mixed in?

Action-packed with a few love scenes! I love fight scenes!

I couldn’t think of anyone else and maybe they were already tagged. So if you feel like doing it! Then you!
