What are some of your favourite quotes from books that you’ve read?
I have so many I can’t possibly list them, but here’s a few of my favourites from books I’ve read recently!
“Wolves were everywhere. In politics, on thrones, in beds. They cut their teeth on history and grew fat on war.”
— Roshani Chokshi, The Gilded Wolves
“Trauma has a gravity of its own, a force you can feel but not see. But it’s not a black hole. It’s not a large, looming celestial body. I am not trapped in any orbit but my own, and all my past mistakes and bad memories are moons that circle me, captured in my orbit. I feel their pull the way the tides do–high, then low. Up, then down. But in the end, I am the one keeping them close wherever I go. I am the one tugging them gently along.
— Sarah Lyu, The Best Lies
The Atargatis hadn’t found the mermaids through a free and open exchange of ideas. The Atargatis had found the mermaids because the people on the ship were made of meat, and the mermaids had empty stomachs that they wanted to fill. That was how you found things, in the sea. Be delicious. That was all you ever had to do.
— Mira Grant, Into the Drowning Deep
What is/was your most and least favourite subject at school?
I have always loved history, honestly: it’s something I’ve been interested in ever since I was a kid, and now I major in it. On the other hand, I hate math, and I run when I see numbers.
What is your favourite way to spend the weekend?
I usually spend weekends working these days, but my favourite way is … um, reading. No surprise there. Sit me on my porch at sunset with a glass of wine and a book and I’ll be perfectly pleased.
Dragons or Elves?
Um. Dragon elves?
You get to ask ONE fictional character a question, who is it and what would the question be?
THIS IS A LOT OF PRESSURE. Um. I’d love to ask Nina Zenik to go on a waffle date with me?
What is your favourite film?
Honestly? I don’t really have a favourite film, because I don’t watch many movies.
What is your favourite trope in a book?
I adore found families and enemies to lovers!
What is your number 1 blogging tip?
Ooh, I don’t know, I’ve only been blogging for a short time! But I’d say interaction is always key, because that’s how you make friends and get to know people and become excited about your blog. Talk to people!
You get to work with any author (dead or alive) on any project, who would the author be and what would the project be?
Victor Hugo. I don’t know what the project would be, I just want to spend some time with Victor Hugo.
Which elemental power would you want (air, water, earth or fire)?
Air, I suppose – there’s a lot you can do with air powers when it comes to manipulating the elements, such as bending air to become invisible, or making, say, air conditioning. (No, I’m not currently in a hot place with no air conditioning, why would you think that?)
How do/would you organise your books on your shelves?
I honestly just organize them by what feels right. There is, therefore, no real rhyme or reason to how I organize my books: my favourites are all on my bed’s headboard so I can reach them easily when I want to revisit old favourites in bed.
My two other bookshelves are usually organized by genre and author. I try to keep books by the same author together, but sometimes I’ll just put books where they look right regardless of color, author, or genre. It makes sense to me!
- What is a genre you’d like to read more of?
- You can take five characters out to dinner. Who would they be?
- What’s the book that made you love reading?
- Where is your favourite place to read?
- Why did you start a book blog?
- Approximately how many books are on your TBR?
- Where in the world would you most like to travel to?
- What would you do if you won ten million dollars?
- How do you decide what to read next?
- What author would you most like to chat with?
- Favorite food?
I’m nominating Shri @ Sun and Chai, Anniek @ Anniek’s Library, Xandra @ Starry Sky Books, Caitlin @ Caitlin Althea, and Laura @ Laura Herondale’s Book Blog, and you, if you want to do this!

I love this post!! Sfghjjghjk I also despise math – it’s so confusing for some reason?? And LMAO your answer for asking one fictional character a question is so on point. Nina Zenik is a queen above queens. 💖💖
Haha thanks! And math is terrible, I can’t do it at all, I’m awful at it.
I love Nina Zenik. SO MUCH.
Oh wow, that quote from The Best Lies is SO good. I constantly change the look of my shelves, and right now my books are shelved according to a highly-curated system of “I dunno, I guess this looks good here.” 😛
The Best Lies is also an AMAZING book. And yes, that’s generally how I shelve my books, but I never rearrange them unless I have to 😅
Ahh.. thank you so much for answering my questions– I’m glad you decided to do them!! ❤
I love the quotes you included– the one from 'The Best Lies' is amazing– I love it!! It would be hard to pick one character to ask a question too but that is a great question to ask Nina and I'm 100% sure she would say yes– haha!!
Ahh.. found families is one of my favourite tropes as well– it is always so fun to read about and often have really sweet moments together!! Love them!!
Air would be a great power to have– so powerful and you're right air conditioning would be useful!!
I loved reading your answers– great post!! ❤
Thank you for tagging me!! I know, I kind of just want to grill a lot of characters so that was such a hard question, you had me stumped 😂
