Buckle in, this baby is fifty questions.
1) Who’s clothes style from a book character, do you like?
I really like Hanako’s style from Wotakoi by Fujita. She has a nice professional style while in the office, but also does really elaborate cosplays for conventions. I think it’s neato.
2) Your book boyfriend/ fictional crush?
3) Ever loved a character but than started hating him?
Rufus Weylin from Kindred by Octavia E. Butler. He starts out so innocent, man. So you hope and hope he stay that way. But… he doesn’t.
4) Biggest/Longest book on your shelf?
A Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin. My copy is a mass market paper back, but man, it’s huge. 1179 pages!
5) Heaviest book on your shelf?
The Best of France by VMB Publishers. The books has to weight eight pounds at least. It’s heavier than my cat
6) Do you have any book posters?
Yep! I have a map of Middle Earth. …It isn’t currently hanging, though.
7) Do you have any book themed jewellery?
I have the pocket watch from Fullmetal Alchemist, but that’s about it.
8) Book OTP?
Currently Narumi and Hirotaka from Wotakoi
9) Favorite book series?
10) Favorite Book-to-movie soundtrack?
Probably the Lord of the Rings ones
11) A book story you miss/ wish would continue?
Erika Johansen’s Tearling series. I need more, man. MORE.
12) Favorite stand-alone?
These questions are so difficult D:
13) Since when do you read books?
Since… I learned to read? I’ve always been a reader :”D
14) Which Hogwarts house are you in?
Ravenclaw, though Pottermore says I’m in Gryffindor. One test out of 500 billion saying Gryffindor instead of Ravenclaw doesn’t mean I’m in Gryffindor, Pottermore. Huff.
15) Quality you look for in a book?
Something unique. Doesn’t really matter what. I just want the synopsis to do something, anything that makes me go ‘ooh’.
16) Favorite book quote
I’ve got two!
“More than anything else in the universe, more than the power to dictate law at Taranoke, more than knowledge of the count of stars in the sky, Baru wanted in that moment to speak the truth.
But she had no tongue for it. She had burnt all her truth away. Alloyed it into the machine.” – Seth Dickinson, The Traitor Baru Cormorant
He especially delighted in the old tales, the epics in which heroes set out on some impossible and noble errand, confronting the dangers in their path with fatalistic bravery. Men often died along the way, killed in brutal and unnatural ways; they were gored by war machines, trampled by steeds, and dismembered by their heartless enemies. Their deaths were boastful and lyrical and always, always more romantic than real. Death was not an end. It was an ellipsis. There was no romance in the scene before him. There were no ellipses here. The bodies lay upon the ground like broken exclamation points. – Josiah Bancroft, Senlin Ascends
17) Favorite author?
Proooobably Naomi Novik at this point. Or Robin Hobb!
18) Favorite book cover?
Shameless plug to my IG, but you really need the video to get the full effect.
19) Action or Romance?
Most of the time, action. I like romance too though.
20) Where do you go when a sad moment happens?
Like… mentally? Physically? Usually towards a beer? Hwe hwe

27) Name a scary book?
House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski freaked me out a little bit, to be honest
28) Last book that made you cry?
Fool’s Assassin by Robin Hobb. A character death happened midway through the book. I didn’t expect to be so attached but I was. I sooooooobbed.
29) Last book that you gave 5 stars?
The Monster Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson
