A n s w e r s:

  1. eBooks or physical books?

Both. I prefer physical books but very often read eBooks.

  1. Paperback or hardback?

I love paperbacks because of their feel and hardbacks for showcasing haha.

  1. Online or in-store book shopping?

Depends on whether I want the book to be in my language or in English. I mostly shop online for books though.

  1. Trilogies or series?

I’ve got no answer for this one because it just depends on the book and if I feel it drags I won’t read it. If that made any sense.

  1. Heroes or villains?

Villains are more fun because of their psyche but both.

  1. A book you want everyone to read?

I will repeat myself a hundred times  – ‘A Little Life’ by Hanya Yanagihara + ‘The Secret History’ by Donna Tartt

  1. Recommend an underrated book

I’ll put the recently read one – Even though it’s foreign and not English/American I feel like it should be read by more people: Nothing Holds Back the Night by Delphine de Vigan

  1. The last book you finished?

The Fact of a Body by Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich.

  1. Weirdest thing you used as a bookmark?

Maybe like a phone or a pen but that’s not that weird?

  1. Used books, yes or no?

Yeah, sure! Love them!

  1. Top three favorite genres?

Definitely psychological thriller, mental health and adult fiction.

  1. Borrow or buy?

Buy but when short with money borrow.

  1. Characters or plot?

This is a tricky one because both make the story.. I have to say characters because I love a good character.

  1. Long or short book?

I consider a short book to be 380-400 pages so short books.

  1. Long or short chapters?

Short chapters are easier to read but if the story is good..

  1. Name the first three books you think of.

Based on a True Story by Delphine de Vigan,

The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides and

My Absolute Darling by Gabriel Tallent.

  1. Books that make you laugh or cry?

Again ‘A Little Life’ by Hanya Yanagihara and so many more…

  1. Our world of fictional worlds?

Being that our world is depressing and I have a pessimistic outlook on it I have to say I’d rather live in a fictional world (but not like a weird dystopian world because I wouldn’t survive haha).

  1. Audiobooks: yes or no?

Sure.

  1. Do you ever judge a book by its cover?

Yes and almost everyone does this. It’s just better if it’s visually appealing.

  1. Book to movie or book to TV adaptation?

Book to movie.

  1. A movie or TV adaptation you preferred to the book?

Nothing comes to mind at the moment.

  1. Series or standalone?

I always prefer standalone books because I hate the waiting or anything being unresolved. I also just generally like standalones.
