My amazing and genius partner in Crime, Clo @ Book Dragons, tagged me to do this super fun tag. Which first off, Thank you Clo! And secondly, guys go check out her Blog, it’s what dragon dreams are made of!
So evidently the way that this tag works is that I answer the questions that Clo left for me and then I ask my own questions for those I tag at the end! Without further ado–let’s do this!
A book/series you picked up, which has taught you something invaluable
There are so many series that have taught me something along the way, so it is hard to only choose one without paying homage to the hundreds of other books that have left their mark on my life and who I am today. However, the first to come to mind is A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas. I know that this series is super problematic, but I grew so much as a person from this series–especially from the second installment. I learned that people aren’t always as they appear (this can be good or bad) and that you can’t love someone or something until you can love yourself–which is something I struggled (and continue to struggle) grasping until I read Feyre’s journey.
What do you wish book covers had more of?
METALLIC! I am in literal awe of Marie Lu’s cover for Warcross solely because of it’s use of metallic colors and that it’s SHINY. Just look at the simplistic beauty that it is!
Genre you don’t read much of and why?
Historical Fiction. I just can’t get into it really because I either get really mad that they treat women and POC like trash (because…you know…history) or I just can’t connect with the time period/how things are done.
3 Songs you’ve been listening to on repeat
Oh boy, this means narrowing down the faves. Ummmmm
You should see me in a Crown by Billie Eilish
Natural by Imagine Dragons
El Tango de Roxanne from the Moulin Rouge Soundtrack
Wow, that was hard.
Favorite backlist book/series?
This is mean because I have so many that are my favourite!! But for the sake of the tag here are a few of my gems:
The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyers
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz
Golden by Jessi Kirby
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
If you could go back in time, and give yourself some advice at the start of your blogging journey, what would you have said?
Oooo good question! I probably would have told myself not to sweat the small stuff–that this is MY blog and I can literally do anything with it or write anyway I want. To always be uniquely myself because there are a million other people doing the same thing–why join them? Being me is better than being Karen down the road.
