I was tagged by Chiara at https://delicateeternity.com/

I’m not going to tag anyone, but I will answer the questions from Chiara. Feel free to answer any of these in the comments! 

1) What made you start book blogging? I used to be in an online book club, so I started the blog with a fellow member (and some other members helped out too). We actually focused more on music at first, but it didn’t take long before we added in books!

2) What’s the last five star book you read? Saga Vol. 6 and Noble Hops by Layla Reyne

3) What did you want to be when you were five years old? Oh gosh, I’m not sure. Probably a teacher. I feel like I had that written down a lot on past school assignments growing up.

4) If there was a natural disaster coming and you could only save five books in your house which five books would you save? This is a tough one! Does my Harry Potter box set count as one? If not, I think I’d go with Prisoner of Azkaban and Half-Blood Prince for Harry Potter, since I love those two. Then I’d choose The Perks of Being a Wallflower, this cool edition of Oscar Wilde short stories I own, and whatever I’m currently reading (hey, I have to finish it!)

5) What’s the last book blog you followed? I’m not sure! I feel like I’m always finding new book blogs and I hate calling people out and forgetting about someone else, so I’ll just say “lots of them!”

6) If you had to give a presentation on any topic what would you give it on? I’ve given presentations on all sorts of things, but I always love talking about books, so I’d go with that. Maybe YA books that adults should read? Or vice versa, Adult books that teens should read?

7) You can interview any (living) author in the world. Who do you interview? I mean, I kind of have to say J.K. Rowling. The Harry Potter series really were a huge part of my childhood and it would be amazing to just meet her, let alone interview her!

8) If you could see any book turned into a perfect adaptation which book would you want it to be? I think Vicious or the Shades of Magic trilogy by V.E. Schwab would be awesome movies if done well!

9) What’s a TV show that got cancelled that you wish had gone on for longer? A lot of shows I’ve loved have been canceled after one season. The most recent is Kevin (Probably) Saves the World. I loved that show!

10) What’s an upcoming book you’re really looking forward to reading? There are always tons of books that I want to read; it’s tough to choose just one. However, I am really excited about The Bookish Life of Nina Hill which comes out on July 9th of this year.

  1. Kevin Probably Saves the World is a show I wanted to watch, but didn’t. 🙁 Guess I”ll have to watch for it on Netflix or something? Not that I have Netflix. I love these types of posts, but never have time to do them! It’s fun getting to know about each other. Only being able to pick 5 books to save is like impossible! I mean, could I save my e-reader? 🙂

  2. I am looking forward to The Bookish Life as well, hopefully it will be a fun one. Oh gosh if I could only save five books?? I would definitley grab Gone With the Wind and 11-22-63 and then I don’t know…. I think I would cheat and grab my Kindle.

    I am back! We took a little family trip (compliments my blogging) and I am ready to roll 🙂

    I guessed it would be Harry Potter that you saved. I think my 11 year old would do the same!

  4. If you could see any book turned into a perfect adaptation which book would you want it to be? I guess it would be The Farm by Tom Rob Smith, I think this would make a great film if done right!

  5. Love this! I say HP counts as one. I have a few versions of Alice in Wonderland that I’d save. LOL. I need to see The Lunar Chronicles become a TV show or movie. And I’m sad that Pan Am went off the air as fast as it did! Firefly, too!

  6. Fun questions and answers! Saving only five books would be hard! I love that you included the one you are currently reading though, makes sense, gotta finish it!

  7. This was so fun to read! I love that you said you’d grab the book you’re currently reading–I feel the same way. I have to finish it! Would it be cheating to say I’d take my Kindle? Ha!

  8. I love these Q&As! I haven’t read a five-star book since I read Neil Gaiman’s Stardust in November. I’m hoping to have one or two in the next few weeks though. J.K. Rowling would be an interesting interview. I’d tune in for that!

  9. I really like to see The Percy Jackson & Heroes of Olympus books made into movies/tv show that ACTUALLY represents the books. The Percy movies were just bad…

    I don’t know what books I’d save. I’ve reached a point where if it’s on my book physical bookshelf, it’s there for a reason (aka I LOVE it).
