And now, on to the questions!
A book you started but never finished… but want to finish. What stopped you from continuing to read it?
The Magicians by Lev Grossman. I stopped because it was too slow and I was getting frustrated with it. But since meeting Lev at the Melbourne Writer’s Festival last year, I’m determined to finish it at some point.
What elements attract you to a book that make you want to read it?
Genre, for starters! If it’s fantasy, you’ve definitely got me already. I usually check the first page to see if the writing interests/immerses me or not! If it does, hello new book. It also helps if the cover is pretty.
What books do you prefer, e-copy or hardcopy?
Hardcopy, easily. I have a library.
What book are you currently reading, or going to read next?
Not sure if I’ll read it next, but Strange the Dreamer is up on my list to read very shortly! And so is The Bone Witch!
Is it fair to judge a book by its film?
Definitely not! The media is so different there’s no way the story can be told exactly the same, for starters. Plus a lot of adaptations I have seen haven’t, well… adapted the book properly. Key elements that make the plot happen are missing. It breaks my heart.
What book did you badly judge by its cover but end up loving?
Uh, probably Vampire Academy? The old covers with people almost-kissing on them were just terrible, but I enjoyed the series nonetheless!
Which book character have you felt the most kin with and are able to relate to?
Hermione? But I feel like that’d be a popular answer? So maybe Ginny instead. I’m happy to be overshadowed by people who are louder and more obvious, but I do have a sense of humour and I’m stubborn, hehe.
If you had to choose a genre to read for all your life (you wouldn’t be able to read any other genre) what would you pick?
Fantasy. No doubt about that at all!
If you could trade lives with one book character, who would it be and why?
Maybe Lucy from The Chronicles of Narnia? Escape into a fantasy land, become royalty, live a life of success? Yes please. I could go back to the “real world” whenever I wanted, too, if I ever got too old in Narnia.
And that’s it for now! I hope you liked my answers! I have a few books to read and then I’ll post reviews for them, so see you again soon! ❤
