Hey, everyone! I was tagged for this by Karen Jo @sincerelykarenjo, her blog is adorable, her bookish pictures are so cute and her posts are amazing, so please check out her blog, guys, because you won’t regret it! Thank you, Karen Jo for tagging me, this tag looks very exciting and I’m sure I will have a great time doing it!

 Favorite color and do you have the book in that color? 

        My favourite color is red and I do have a book in that color and that is The Wrath and The Dawn. I took a picture of it, but it looked very basic and the light was weird, so  I’m just going to give you this absolutely perfect cover.

    Describe yourself in 3 Book Characters?

This is cruel and very difficult, but I will try!

Emily from Since You’ve Been Gone because it’s very hard to get me out of my comfort zone. I’m a shy person, who rarely does adventurous stuff (unless you count travelling). I’d probably benefit from a list like the one Emily gets from Sloane, just saying!

 I’m shy and introverted and bookish and at some point, I’ve written and published (on wordpress, really) fan-fiction. Even now, I love writing fanfiction, I just never publish it anymore, but yes! Definitely, a lot like Cath. She was a very relatable character and I adored reading about her because wow, girls, are we sisters? Also, very similar college experience (besides meeting a nice boy, still waiting on that).

Bronwyn because I’m pretty sure I’ve been categorized as the nerd, who never, ever breaks a rule all the time. (It’s not really that true.) I mean, I love slamming patriarchy all the time, but I guess you could say that I’m the good girl who has it figured out.

Hyped books yay or nay? If yay, what was the most hyped book you ever read? If nay, what was the most hyped book you decided not to read?

 Ah, that’s not how it works for me. There are hyped books that have been very much worth the hype and overhyped books that were terrible. But no matter how good it was or how good I thought it was, I always wait for the hype to die before I pick it up. I can’t remember a time where I read a hyped book when people were still buzzing about it. I’m going to answer both questions because there have been cases for both.

Yay – Probably Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo!

Nay – Twilight, probably… (though I’ve read the fourth book, but you don’t want to know the story for this one)

 

Recommend one book per season. Spring. Summer. Fall. Winter

Name one book that wrecked you emotionally.

  I think I’ve said it before, but Ruta Sepetys’ books usually wreck me emotionally, she has an incredible power with words, she can reveal the very essence of humanity, be it good or bad. And I adore her.

 

Name a book that you always recommend to everybody you know.

Well, you probably already know the books I always recommend, but for the sake of the question. The Lord of the Rings series, The Winner’s Trilogy, the Addicted series/Like Us series, Kasie West books, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, The Secret History, A Song of Achilles and PJATO.

What book would you recommend with tea and cookies?

Any book. DUH. But Rainbow Rowell’s books might be perfect in a mix with tea and cookies!

 

What is your guilty pleasure book?

New Adult books, especially Zapata books because they are so addicting and I can’t stop reading them, even though there’s a lot of drama and sometimes it’s very irrational or whatever.

 

Favorite dessert and a book that reminds you of that.

Cupcakes and totally Long Way Down (and Hothouse Flower) because Raisy feelings and because Daisy has a sweet tooth just like me!!

Are you a procrastinator? What book have you been procrastinating reading?

Sometimes, I guess. The Silmarillion and The House of Hades, these two poor books have been on my currently reading shelf for so long, I feel ashamed. I will hopefully read them at some point!! And also Crooked Kingdom, a book I should have read a year ago and haven’t. But I own it now and it’s on high-priorities list.

      I’ll definitely pick it up again at some point, I suppose it’s because I started reading it during autumn and I usually read PJATO books during the summer. I don’t know if it makes any sense, but they feel like summer-y books to me, but I will try to finish HOO for Christmas. ❤ Thank you very much!

    Love your answers and we have a lot of things in common =)! I love Kasie West Books and The Winner’s Trilogy.

    I’m shy and an introvert too. I prefer to read books, stay at home, and watch movies. But I do love traveling. My favorite places are Amsterdam, Peru, and Switzerland. I really want to go to Scotland, Greece, Iceland, and Maldives.

    Definitely checking out Zapata books. I love new adult books, but have never come across books by this author. Really interested in checking it out.

    Oh and thanks for the shoutout and the love!!!!

    xoxo

      Awww, it’s so nice to find people that share similar interests with you! I’m glad you do, it sounds like we have many things in common! I really need someone to fangirl with me about The Winner’s Trilogy, I can’t wait any longer for Marie Rutkoski’s new release. I just want to get my hands on that damn book (I don’t even know what’s about, I just want it).
      I’ve only seen Greece from your list and I adored it, it’s really beautiful and peaceful, probably one of my favourites countries I’ve ever visited!!! ❤
      No problem, sweetie! ❤ ❤

    I feel like we are SO alike… and I kind of love it 😀 I especially love your picks for the characters being just like you are. I only read Since You’ve Been Gone, but the way you described the other characters just speak to me, in some way ahah. I love it.
    Your seasonal recs are AWESOME, Everything Leads To You is such an incredible book ❤ ❤

      *bear hug* I love you so much, Marie!!! ❤ You really need to read Fangirl, it's amazing and just so relatable when it comes to college/uni life.
      Everything Leads to You is such a hidden gem, that book is too underrated, I feel like more people should know about it! Thanks for the lovely comment! ❤ ❤
