I’m kind of a wimp.
Favorite (book) villain & why.
Can’t believe I’m saying this…Pennywise. It’s the only villain that left an impact on me throughout my entire life (so far.) But at the same time it’s such a good villain who actually scares me.
What do you think of ADVANCE READER COPIES/UNCORRECTED PROOFS? Do you collect them? *cough* #booksfortrade *cough
As someone who is writing a book I think it’s a good idea to get the book out there, however I don’t think people should get free copies just cause. I like giving out copies for reviews.
Do you think the book community (i.e. bookstagram) is becoming more materialistic? Why or why not?
I just got back into Instagram and I don’t have a opinion on this yet, but I can understand why it would be viewed that way.
Do you watch booktube? What do you think of popular booktubers?
Like the question before, I just started to hear about booktube since I started blogging again, so I don’t have a big opinion on them.
Such lame answers.
Favorite book to tv/movie adaptation?
Oh gosh this is limited because there are many I don’t like. But there’s Lord of the Rings, Jurassic Park, the Chronicles of Narnia (first movie), Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Count of Monte Cristo. I’ll even add Harry Potter and the recent IT movie.
Okay maybe not that limited.
Do you read classics? What’s your favorite classic?
I’m getting more into them, the first being Sherlock Holmes but I am a big fan of the Count of Monte Cristo. One of the few books I read in school that actually stuck with me and still enjoy to this day.
What fictional occupation do you want to have?
This is a broad term but I think I’d be a witch, like with powers who protects/heals people.
How often do you shop for books? And do you have any money saving tips for your fellow book nerds?
I shop too often. Sometimes I go into Barnes and Noble and come out with one, others I come out with three. I try to tell myself if I finish a book I already have then I can get a new one. Or I don’t spend more than $20 when looking for new ones.
