I was nominated by Ashleigh @ A Frolic Through Fiction and Marian @ Bookception21 for Real Neat Blog Award.
Thank you so much Ashleigh and Marian! 😀 I’m sorry that I took forever to do this award, I really appreciate the nominations.
The rules are:
- Thank and link the person who nominated you
- Answer the 7 question your nominator has provided
- Nominate 7 other blogger and create new questions for them
Who are your auto-buy authors? (Authors where you would buy any book they release)
I have so many (that explains why I am forever spending money to buy books). JK Rowling, Rick Riordan, Rainbow Rowell, Sarah Rees Brennan, Cassandra Clare, and Michael Crichton to name a few.
Which book-to-movie/TV adaptations you are looking forward to?
I am looking forward for In The Heart of The Sea, Fantastic Beasts, A Monster Calls, Ready Player One, and the Shadowhunters TV series (hopefully it’ll be better than the movie).
What do you not like seeing on a book cover, and puts you off buying it?
Umm people staring/glaring at you from the cover. I am not opposed to having models on book covers, but I don’t like it when they’re directly staring at me (it creeps me out I guess?)
When you’re not reading, what else do you do in your spare time?
Messing with some programming codes, usually. Also, SLEEP. A lot.
Which fictional world would you NOT want to visit – at all?
The post-apocalyptic world in the 5th wave seems pretty horrible and I do not want to visit it at all.
If you could be any character from a book, who would you be?
Magnus Bane from The Mortal Instruments/The Infernal Devices. Magnus looks like he’s always having fun despite having been around for so long. He also gets to know Will and Jem and Tessa and Simon and all those characters from TMI and TID. And he has magic! Plus, I get to date a cute blue-eyed boy.
What books do you hope to read before 2016?
Cress and Winter by Marissa Meyer.
UnDivided by Neal Shusterman.
Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson.
1. What’s your favourite book of the year so far?
Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson. I’ve been raving about this book too much so I’ll just stop here. :p
2. What book have you read that was out of your comfort zone?
I haven’t found any. Maybe I play it too safe when picking books or maybe I just have too high tolerance when it comes to reading.
3. Which storylines do you like reading about the most? (e.g heist, redemption, road trips etc.)
Heist is always a fun one. I also like stories involving magic school and mystery/crime-solving (either together or separately).
4. Hardbacks v.s. Paperbacks?
Paperbacks. I am very clumsy when it comes to hardbacks. The dust jacket is forever coming off
and I some times lost the jacket pleasedontkillmehardbackfans. I am also very lazy and usually in supine position while reading. Hardbacks are harder to wield (no pun intended) when you’re reading in bed.
5. The 5 books you’re most anticipating in 2016
ONLY 5? I will definitely forget some books, but here are some I can mention off the top of my head:
Tell The Wind and Fire (Sarah Rees Brennan)
A Gathering of Shadows (V.E. Schwab)
Stormlight Archive #3 (Brandon Sanderson)
Lady Midnight (Cassandra Clare)
The Hidden Oracle (Rick Riordan)
6. Favourite book of the year so far
Since I already mentioned Words of Radiance above, I will go with A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab.
7. Harry or Ron?
Ron. No wait, Harry. Okay, Ron.

4. What’s your favorite place to read?

6. What’s your dream place to visit?
7. Blogging or reading? (evil question is evil)

Nice answers 🙂 I love A Darker Shade of Magic too, I can’t wait for the second book!
Thank you Ashleigh 😀
Yep, me too! I even put a countdown to AGOS release on my phone :p
I think it’s released the day before my birthday so that’s one present I’ll be getting myself haha! (Unless the date has changed from last I heard)
February 23 the last time I checked. 😊
Your birthday is on the 24th?
Hahaha or you can just give a (blatant) hint to your friend to get you the book.
Yepp, February 24th 🙂
I’ll just be like “oh hey you know there’s a book I’m really wanting coming out the day before my birthday? Yeah? *wink* cool” haha xD
Exactly. xD And keep mentioning it starting 2 weeks before your birthday. They will get you the book to shut you up. Not based on my personal experience, I swear! 😉
Hahaha good thinking 😀
I had no idea that Ready Player One was going to be made into a movie – and by Spielberg too! Thanks for sharing that – that’s plenty of motivation to read the book!
I recently finished A Darker Shade of Magic and it was AWESOME. Totally reminded me why I love to read. ♥ I’m really excited to read A Gathering of Shadows too – I have so many theories and I can’t wait to see how it all unfolds!
The movie adaptation was also a big part of my motivation to read Ready Player One. 😀
It was! A Darker Shade of Magic was the book that brought me out of my reading slump and I love it more because of it. Prior to reading it, I only managed 2 – 3 books a month. Then I read ADSOM and suddenly I was like MORE BOOKS PLEASE. 😍
Oooh awesome! Did you enjoy it? I’ve heard it’s quite loaded with references, which I don’t mind too much.
SAME! I’ve felt more motivated to read after finishing ADSOM. I love books that can make you love reading all over again. c:
I enjoyed it even though I didn’t get most of the 80’s references. It’s not groundbreaking or any of the sort, but it was fun.
Fair enough! I’ll give it a go regardless… maybe next year! 😀
