Destiny’s Questions

1. What is your average rating on Goodreads? (It’s under your picture on your profile, if you didn’t know!)

4.18. Which is honestly probably because I haven’t reviewed every book I’ve read.

2. What is the worst book-to-movie adaptation you’ve ever seen?

Ughhhhh did any of y’all see the City of Ember adaptation? It was so bad. The only thing I can remember is a giant star-nosed mole that definitely wasn’t in the book.

3. Do you have a “guilty pleasure” genre, or do you openly admit your likes and dislikes no matter what?

I’m weird and don’t believe in guilty pleasures for anything. I openly admit my opinions on things.

4. Have you ever bought clothing from a book series?

Hi, hello, a solid 40% of my wardrobe consists of stuff from Harry Potter.

5. What was the most recent bookish quote you fell in love with?

“If you can’t be unafraid, be afraid and happy.” Obviously, I just finished The Raven King last week.

6. Are you more likely to add books based on their cover and synopsis, or a friend’s review?

I think it depends, really. I know a lot of people I read reviews from don’t really enjoy the Abhorsen Chronicles but that’s my favorite series, sooooo…like I said, it depends.

7. What blogging friend do you think your taste is most similar to? Give them a shout-out!

I think Destiny and I really both love spooky stories, so, haaaaaay.

8. What is the most prominent spine color on your shelves?

Black, I think? Really I just have piles of books all around my house because I’m too broke for a proper book case.

9. Do you utilize libraries and/or used bookstores often?

I doooo, I work in a large-ish library system, so I’m all about checking out about 30 books at a time and then kinda hoarding them. And we have a used bookstore right inside our main branch, and one just down the hill. So I can get soooo many books for pretty cheap.

10. Do you like book-themed coloring books? If so, which is your favorite? If not, why not?

I like the idea of them, if that makes sense? Like I’ll get Harry Potter coloring books, and then never color in them, because once it’s colored, I can’t uncolor it, y’know?

11. If you could be transported into one fantasy novel, which one would it be, and why?

As much as I adore Hogwarts and the magical United Kingdom, I gotta say I want to live in Tolkien’s worlds. I’ve always wanted to live in the Shire.

 

Hokay, so my questions, since I’ve been trying to think of some for ages:

  1. Are you a fan of bookish candles? If you are, what’s your favorite or what scent do you associate with your favorite character?
  2. Bookmarks or dogear?
  3. Dystopian books, or happy-go-lucky fantasy?
  4. Have you ever tried to make a food based on a book or used a bookish cookbook?
  5. How long do you wait between finishing a book and writing a review?
  6. Have you ever read a graphic novel adaptation of a novel? If not, would you be interested in reading one?
  7. What’s the coolest book merch you’ve seen?
  8. What are your thoughts on audio books?
  9. How often do you use Goodreads?
  10. (stealing one of Destiny’s questions because it’s a really good one) Do you have a “guilty pleasure” genre, or do you openly admit your likes and dislikes no matter what?
  11. What’s your stand on fanfiction, and what’s the best one you’ve ever read?

So, I tag:

I can’t wait to read your answers!!
