I love tags where I get to talk about different kinds of favorites from books and also which make me think a lot. So, when I saw this tag done by Joleen @ Starlight Book Tales, I knew I had to do it too. I had so much fun reading their answers and you should also checkout their blog for more fun bookish content. Now let’s get started and see what I have to say.
1. WHAT FICTIONAL CHARACTER HAS THE BEST STYLE?
I have to agree with Joleen on this one.. It has to be Magnus Bane. And I can’t even think of anyone else after watching Harry Shum Jr. portray him so wonderfully on the TV show.
2. YOUR BOOK GIRLFRIEND/BOYFRIEND/ FICTIONAL CRUSH?
Jasvinder from Girl Gone Viral. He is such an amazing love interest and now I just want all book boyfriends to be like him.
3. EVER LOVED A CHARACTER BUT THEN STARTED HATING THEM?
Brenna from the Playbook series. She was my favorite side character in the first two books, but she annoyed me so much in her own story Blitzed and that was a disappointment.
4. BIGGEST/LONGEST BOOK ON YOUR SHELF?
According to Goodreads, the Kindle edition of Words of Radiance is the longest book on my bookshelf. Actually all three of them are mammoths.
5. HEAVIEST BOOK ON YOUR SHELF?
My two collectible editions of Complete Jane Austen and Complete Sherlock Holmes have to be some of the heaviest books I own.
6. DO YOU HAVE ANY BOOK POSTERS?
I have a map of the Grishaverse up on my wall and I love it.
7. DO YOU HAVE ANY BOOK THEMED JEWELRY?
I don’t think I have any but would love to buy something.
8. BOOK OTP?
No one has knocked off Alex and Henry from RWRB off my top OTP list yet.
9. FAVORITE BOOK SERIES?
From last year, it has to be The Bone Witch trilogy.
10. FAVORITE BOOK-TO-MOVIE SOUNDTRACK?
I don’t listen to a lot of music, so I wouldn’t know any soundtracks. But even I couldn’t escape the catchiness of “Toss a Coin to the Witcher” from The Witcher TV show.
11. A BOOK STORY YOU MISS/ WISH WOULD CONTINUE?
Another answer where I agree with Joleen. I wish Leigh would write more books in the Six of Crows universe and soon.
12. FAVORITE STAND-ALONE?
Sorcery of Thorns is the most fun I’ve had reading a standalone in a while.
13. SINCE WHEN DID YOU READ BOOKS?
Since I was probably 5 or 6. As an introvert, books have always been my friends.
14. WHICH HOGWARTS HOUSE ARE YOU IN?
15. QUALITY YOU LOOK FOR IN A BOOK?
Characters I feel connected to.
16. FAVORITE BOOK QUOTE
“I’m an observer, not a conqueror. I have no interest in changing other worlds to suit me. I choose the lighter touch: changing myself to suit them.”

20. WHERE DO YOU GO WHEN A SAD MOMENT HAPPENS?

21. HOW LONG DO YOU NEED TO FINISH A BOOK?
It depends on the book. If I’m really liking it, shouldn’t take me more than a day..
22. HOW LONG IS YOUR MOURNING PERIOD?
Ohh I can go a few days without reading because I’m not in the mood or just in a slump. But I try not to go for more than a week if I can help it.
23. LEAST FAVORITE BOOK?
There’s one from last year but I don’t wanna talk about it anymore.

I wanted to process all my thoughts about the books I was reading and also hopefully remember them better.

I’m not a horror genre reader but one dystopian called The Test really scared me with it’s concept.

Definitely Night of the Dragon. There was so much to cry about in it.
29.LAST BOOK THAT YOU GAVE 5 STARS?
