What is your favourite series?

Well I’m pretty sure this is book series, in which case it would have to be Harry Potter. I love this series, the entire plot line is so intricate the way through the seven books.

For tv series, since I want to tell you anyway, my favourite is The Librarians. It’s funny and I like the cute plot lines in every episode.

Do you ever read the ending of a book first to see if you’ll like it?

Nope. Never. I have been tempted to read the last page of a book when I have already started a book but I always avoid temptation.

Is there a book you liked but think could do with a rewrite?


This is a hard question but it would have to be Angel by L.A. Weatherly. I really liked the concept of this book, but the characters annoyed me a bit.

Which book has your least favourite cover?

Nothing comes to mind for this question. I will update this question if I find an ugly book that I like.

How often do you unhaul books?

Never. I don’t think I have willingly ever gave away any of my books. My mum once cleared out my collection which I didn’t know about. I then visited the second hand book store and picked up a book I though I recognised before I realised it was my copy.

Do you feel pressure to update your blog regularly?

Kind of, I really enjoy blogging and sharing my feelings. At the moment I am have time off, so I have been blogging every day to give myself something to focus on.

I do feel guilty when I haven’t posted in a really long time.

What is one of your favourite bookish items?

Apart from bookmarks, which I always loose before I can form an emotional attachment, I don’t own any bookish items. I will have to change that and decorate my new flat with all things bookish.

What are the top 3 things on your bucket list?

  1. See the Great Wall of China
  2. Own my own dog
  3. Meet Fall Out Boy

Which book would you sacrifice in an apocalypse to save the world?


If it meant that humanity got to survive an apocalypse then I would sacrifice any book that would allow that. For instance I would give up my new favourite book A Court of Mist and Fury.

Would you like to travel to the past or the future?

I would travel to the past. My mum always jokes that I was born in the  wrong era, so I would like to live in the 1800’s with the petticoats and corsets.

What is your favourite song? (Include YouTube link)

I have never been asked this question before. Normally its my favourite band, which is easier to pick. But one single song, that is hard.

Chicago is so Two Years Ago is from Fall Out Boys’ Take this to the Grave album. I fell in love with this song the first time I heard it, I have no idea why.

Random Facts

  1. I am moving to England in one month for a placement
  2. My bookcase is currently overflowing and I have to keep some of my books in my wardrobe
  3. I am a huge fan of Doctor Who, my favourite Doctor was Matt Smith

  8. Purple is my favourite colour
  9. I share a Spotify account with my sister
  10. I hate writing facts about myself
  11. I am still shocked anyone decided to press the follow button on my blog


I love all these blogs, and I think you should have a look at them if you don’t already follow them.
