Happy birthday to me! Turning 32 today. Yes I am that old. No I don’t feel that old. In spirit. My body is like ahaha you are 50.
Author you’ve read the most books by
At this point I think that I’ve read the most books by Terry Pratchett, Rick Riordan and J.K. Rowling.
Best sequel ever
The Golem’s Eye by Jonathan Stroud.
The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh and Perido Street Station by China Mievelle
Drink of choice whilst reading
Blue Bastard Energy drink or Tea.
E-reader or physical book
I still prefer physical books.
Fictional character you would probably have dated in school
Uhm none? As an adult I honestly don’t look at characters like that. I also was not that interested in guys in high school. I mean I had crushes on guys that were very far away from me haha.
Glad you gave this book a chance
For this year I am glad I gave the novella The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion by Margaret Killjoy a chance. It is something I would not have normally picked up until it was a free Tor ebook. I bought the ebook of the second novella right away after reading it.
Indigo Springs by A.M. Dellamonica. It could have gone with the above question as well as I luckily picked it up at a book market for 2 Euro because it looked interesting. It is still one of my favorites.
Important moment in your reading life
Uhm, learning to read?
The Poison Song by Jen Williams. I cry ugly tears.
Kinds of books you won’t read
Won’t is always a big word. I’m generally not drawn to non-fiction or erotica but never say never.
Longest book you’ve read
A Storm of Swords (ASOIAF 3) by George R.R. Martin
Major book hangover
I don’t really get those. I just grab the next one and keep on going~
Number of bookcases you own
One book you’ve reread lots
Preferred place to read
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read
I have said before that I am not a big quote person so I have no answer here.
Not picking up Terry Pratchett earlier.
Series you started and need to finish (all books are out)
Dangit. All books are out. But it is the truth. Fine.
From just this year so far: The Riyria Revelations, Murderbot Diaries (novella’s), Book of the Ancestors, Temeraire.
Three all-time favourite books
The Golem’s Eye / The Winnowing Flame trilogy / Foundryside
But this is just at the moment. Could be different next week to be honest.
Unapologetic fangirl for
Discworld and Jonathan Stroud
Very excited for this release more than all the others
Shorefall by Robert Jackson Bennett!
Worst bookish habit
Is there such a thing?
X marks the spot: Start at the top left of your bookshelf and pick the 27th book
Going for one per book case lol.
TBR Book shelf: The Diviners by Libba Bray
Blue Book Shelf: Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett
Left Book Shelf: Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
Right Book Shelf: Etched in Bone by Anne Bishop
Your latest purchase
The Fairyloot edition of Nocturna from Anderwereld. I kind of geeked out when they had it. I’ve been meaning to read this but had been waiting on the Dutch edition (yes it got translated) to hit the library but when I saw that I couldn’t resist. It is my birthday month. That is a good excuse right?
Zzz-snatcher book (Last book that kept you up way late)
None. I value my sleep.
