From Sarah Jane
If you could unread a book, what book would it be?
This is such an interesting question! I think Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell. I wasn’t a fan of it, and I’ve heard so many good things about Rowell’s other works but I’m not interested in them because of Eleanor and Park. So I wish I could unread Eleanor and Park so I would be more open to her other ones.
If you could read a book for the first time again, what book would it be?
Other than the obvious
(Fight Club) I think I’ll go with Looking for Alaska by John Green. It’s my favourite John Green novel and I would love to experience it again.
A popular book you’ll never read?
Honestly probably the ACOTAR series by Sarah J. Maas. I just don’t think it’s for me.
A book recommendation of a book that not a lot of people know about?
I’m going recommend a totally random book and say Dream Factory by Brad Barkley and Heather Hepler. It’s about teenagers who work at Disneyland, and it’s so fun. I feel like literally no one but me has read it.
A book you wish someone would write?
So many tbh. I would love a book on Harry Potter’s parents’ generation at Hogwarts.
Which book got you interested in reading?
I’ve always been a reader, so I don’t think there’s one book I can pinpoint as the book that started that. But the Magyk series was one of my earliest favourites that I read by myself, so maybe that.
What’s your biggest bookish pet peeve?
Insta-love probably? Or girl-on-girl hate for no reason. Or girls who are ~not like other girls~. Basically just internalized mysogyny I guess??
What’s your greatest strength as a reader? Greatest weakness?
This is also such a great question! I think my biggest strength is that I’m objective, if that makes sense? I think I can read a book and enjoy it 100% but also see it’s flaws and acknowledge them. I think it’s important to be objective but still enjoy things fully. I’m also pretty good at reading books I’m pretty sure I’ll like, which is useful.
I think my greatest weakness is I’m a fairly slow reader and sometimes forget to read, if that makes sense? Like I’ll either binge-read a book in two days or it’ll take me three weeks to read it because I keep forgetting I’m reading it.
What author would you like to interview and why?
I think Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I really enjoy her writing and a lot of what she has to say about feminism, but she’s also said some things that I disagree with and I think we could have a really interesting conversation. Also maybe Pierce Brown, for similar reasons.
What are your favourite kind of blog posts to write?
I like most posts haha. I think maybe reviews, but I also like doing recommendation posts and Top 5 Wednesday posts.
My best/favourite posts
- If you could change one thing about a book, what would it be?
- What’s a bookish turn-off? Like something that will make you not read a book?
- If you could attend any bookish wedding, which would it be?
- What’s your favourite type of tea?
- Who’s your favourite Disney princess?
No pressure of course!
Thanks again to Erin and Sarah Jane for the nominations!! And thank you all for reading xx
