What are you currently reading, and are you enjoying it? Right now, I’m reading Again, But Better and it’s a fun read. It makes me want to learn more about the new adult genre, which seems to really be picking up speed in the publishing world. I’ve also been slowly making my way through Anna Karenina for the past few months.
Who is your all-time favorite character? Ooh, tough. I think I’ll stick to my answer from the last time I was chosen for this award: Alyosha Karamazov, Samwise Gamgee, and Horatio.
In terms of YA, Patrick from Perks of Being a Wallflower, Prince Sebastian from The Prince and the Dressmaker, and Bitty from Check Please! are up there.
What are your thoughts on love triangles? Eh. It’s not my favorite. I’d much rather read a deep and well-written romance between two characters than have a third character thrown in there to make things complicated.
What is your fave book to re-read? I’m always down for a good re-read of Hamlet every now and again. Also, I’ve been meaning to re-read The Song of Achilles because that’s by far the best historical fiction book I’ve ever read.
What was the last book you DNF’ed? Hmm, let me think. I think it was Bad at Money by Gaby Dunn. I was looking for more of a financial advice book, so I was a little disappointed that it seemed to be more of a memoir.
Who is your fave fictional animal? Piglet. Probably because I watched Piglet’s Big Movie so much as a kid. Also Aslan because I also watched The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe a lot growing up.
How many books are on your TBR? Oof, too many. Right now, the big ones are Red, White and Royal Blue, Circe, and A Monstrous Regiment of Women.
Which book has been on your shelf the longest (read or unread)? I’ve had Walden on my shelf since I was a freshman in college and still haven’t finished it… someday, Thoreau, but not today.
What is your favorite book to movie adaptation? Technically a mini-series but the Good Omens adaptation exceeded my already high expectations and I’m already wanting to re-watch it. Man, it made me miss Terry Pratchett’s work though.
Which character would you swap lives with? Honestly, I just want to be a hobbit. Give me food and cheer and song any day above hoarded gold. And, you know, maybe an adventure if a group of dwarves are in need of a burglar to reclaim their home.
What do you do when you’re in a reading slump? When I can’t find time to read print books, I also listen to audiobooks at work. Helps me keep my life a little more balanced.
