➽ If your life were a book genre, what would it be?
I mean, as much as I want to say fantasy, you know I’d be a boring contemporary! But like, I could totally make it a romance, depending the night!
➽ What villain from a book do you identify with the most?
This is such a hard question, but I guess I’ll go with The Darkling from The Shadow and Bone Trilogy, because 1.) I’m a very passionate person, like him! 2.) I always stand up for what I believe is right, like him! 3.) I like to make girls swoon, like him!
➽ What protagonist are you most similar to?
I’d have to say a mix of Senna from Tarryn Fisher’s Mud Vein, Leigh from Emily XR Pan The Astonishing Color of After, and Holo from Isuna Hasekura’s Spice and Wolf!
➽ Which book did you connect with in the past that you no longer do?
Gosh, I feel like this is such a hard question, because I connect so much with my past. But I guess I’ll say the Goosebumps books by RL Stine, just because I was so obsessed with them when I was a little kid, but I never even read anything remotely scary now as an adult.
➽ What recent book read would you love to be a character in?
I’m going to go with Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik, because I would love to live in the hidden away, winter mountain kingdom, ruled by the Staryk King! I would say Holly Black’s fae lands, but (let’s be real) I probably wouldn’t last a minute! So, snowy elves it is!
➽ How do your reading habits show off your personality?
I suppose I will say that my reading habits really showcase how dedicated I am. I rarely DNF a book, and I rarely will give up on anything in life. I know that’s not the healthiest of ways to live (in books and in real life) but it’s something that I think really mirrors each other. Also, something I need to continue to work on!
➽ What book taught you something about yourself?
I feel like I used this every single time, but it’s the damn truth: Black Iris by Elliot Wake, because it was the book that made me realize that I was pansexual, and it completely changed my life! 💖💛💙
And if this looks like a tag you’d like to do: consider yourself tagged! Also, here is some more information about this tag and why it was created! I completely encourage you all to go vote! My biased self has been voting for Harry Potter every day! Happy reading, friends!
