Questions from Bookishafterthoughts and my answers

  • Do you listen to music while you read? Yes, but very much on the background.
  • Favourite childhood book series? The Twins at St. Clare’s by Enid Blyton and anything Roald Dahl.
  • Favourite place to read? In my green wing chair.
  • What are you currently reading? The Girl in the Train by Paula Hawkins.
  • Favourite YA romance novel? A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas.
  • Do you watch Booktube? If so, who are your favourite Booktubers? No. Never heard of it. I’m going to check it out though.
  • If you organize your books, how do you do it? By series. Wherever there is space basically.
  • Scariest book you’ve ever read? The Woman in Black by Susan Hill. The play is also scary as hell.
  • Ronmione or Harrmione? Ron & Hermione. Without a doubt.
  • Favourite book to movie adaptation? The Lord of the Rings.
  • Paperback or hardback? If I love the story, I want to own a beautiful edition of the book (hardback). I often buy the paperback though (better for my wallet).
