3 Things About Me
- I used to supply my fellow classmates in secondary school with toffee illicitly during lessons, the code word being ‘tipex’, which at 12 years old, we thought was pretty clever since it began with the same letter.
- I have been scared of the sea ever since I watched an episode of a children’s’ animal documentary show when I was younger that featured 9 ft. long giant squid and Japanese spider crabs that grow to the size of small cars.
- I find it near impossible to go a day without a cup of tea. I’m pretty sure 70% of my bloodstream is PG Tips.
Questions from Deekay
1. What are the last 3 books you gave full 5-stars rating?
The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang – oh lord did I love this book. It was amazing, and for me personally, somewhat revelatory. It was worthy of all 5 of its stars.
Super Sons Vol. 3: Parent Trap by Peter J. Tomasi – I just fell in love with this pint-sized duo and cannot wait to read more.
The 7 ½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton – this was a new experience for me because I don’t usually get into mystery novels but this one was captivating in its uniqueness and I truly enjoyed it.
2. How do you organize your shelf?
I sort by genre (alphabetically) and then within each genre alphabetically by author’s surname. (that’s not weird right?)
3. How do you get out of your reading slump?
I give myself a day or two and then try to get back to the book, but if I’m not feeling it still I just jump into a whole new one that is completely different from that one. It’s worked well so far.
4. Which book/s that give you a life-changing experience?
Well, I already mentioned it but The Kiss Quotient. Seeing the world through Stella’s eyes and seeing the painstaking similarity was what has prompted me to get assessed for ASD.
5. What are your biggest bookish pet peeves?
Hmmm, toughie. When it comes to owners I’d say just not looking after books properly; however, each individual defines that. Books deserve to be treated with respect, like flags or artifacts. When it comes to writers of books, I have to go stereotypical characters and glamourising or alleviating *ahem* problematic concepts (abuse of all kinds, for example – I mean, why, just why?).
