The Questions

  1. Why did you start a book blog?
    • I wanted to have a place where I could share my love of reading as well as talk with others who have the same love of books. Since a lot of my friends aren’t readers like myself I wanted to find some new ones online.
  2. What is the best book which has been written in your country?
    • Oh, this is a hard one. I think my favorite book Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. There are so many wonderful stories though.
  3. Which book is you guilty pleasure?
    • I don’t think any books I read I would consider “guilty pleasures”.
  4. What is your favorite non-fiction book?
    • My favorite non-fiction would be The Witches: Salem, 1692. I highly recommend it since it reads more like a narrative and the content is very interesting.
  5. When would you say that your blog is a (big) success?
    • I would say my blog is a big success every time I have a wonderful interaction with one of my readers since that was the reason why I created it in the first place.
  6. Which book do you believe should be mandatory to read at all schools worldwide?
    • I don’t know if I could answer this because a book that would be useful, relevant, and meaningful in every country, state, and town.
  7. Do you rather buy your books or get them from the library?
    • I really enjoy using my library for books I am iffy about, but I enjoy buying books that I really loved.
  8. Which mistakes did you make when you started blogging?
    • I think the biggest mistake I made was that I went a little over the top when I got started, which led to getting burned out quickly and then not posting again for months. I eventually redid everything and tried again.
  9. How do you take care of yourself and you mental health?
    • I make sure I have me time, which could be me just hanging out by myself, doing something I have wanted to do, or just eating my favorite meal. I realized that I need to set time aside to do things I feel like doing and it goes a long way.
  10. From which country would you like to read a book?
    • I would love to read a book that takes place in Egypt. I loved reading non-fiction books about the country, but I can say I never read a fiction set in the country. Any recommendations are welcome!
  11. If you could give advice to a blogger who starts today, what would it be?
    • Write about what you love, those who share those interests will come. Do not write what you think others want to hear.

Katy’s Questions:

Favourite book-to-film adaptation?

I don’t really watch adaptations that much, but I did enjoy My Sisters Keeper quite a bit. There is also the entire Harry Potter series. Can’t forget them, but I wanted to mention something else.

What book do you want to be made into a TV show/film?

I think Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen would make a great movie or television show.

If you were to write a book, what do you think your main character would be called?

Aria – I love this name so much. Last name, no idea.

What are three songs you adore and why?

As of late, I have not listened to music with words in it. I have been listening to a lot of classical and Dance music. I know all over the place. I just love the feelings that both of these types of music give me. They can keep you calm, make you excited, and so much more.

Do you play video games? What are a couple of your favourites?

I do, but not as much as I once did. A few of my favorites are Lego Hobbit, Sims, Forza Horizon 2, and World of Warcraft.

What book would you like to play through as a video game?

The Hobbit… I have played it and it was so much fun!

What is your favourite Disney film?

Oh this one is hard, The Lion King I would have to go with.

What three book characters would you like to have lunch with?

Death from the Book Thief (narrator, I know),  Bilbo Baggings from the Hobbit, and Abraham Lincoln from the Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter. All would have great stories to share, but also lessons to share as well.

If you were to get a book related tattoo, what would you get?

Something Harry Potter related. I know, I know original. But, I would get something related to it mainly because it was something that bought be great joy as a child and an adult. A tattoo lasts forever, I would want a book that have been one of my favorites for the longest span of time.
