QUESTIONS FROM TAYLOR

  1. What has been your favourite read so far this year?

I feel like a lot of my favourites are books with the capability of ripping my heart into minuscule pieces. Would books be magical if they couldn’t do that?

I really loved reading The Book Thief by Markus Zukas. I’m never getting over that book and will definitely need multiples copies of it.

  1. What song would you recommend to get us pumped up for the weekend?

I’m a huge fan of old music! I’d recommend anything by AC/DC or The Doors or Etta James or Nina Simone. If you’re want a more contemporary artist, definitely Paramore or Panic! At The Disco.

  1.  If you were going to get a tattoo based off a book what would you get and why?

“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me.” – Jane Eyre

This book means so much to me.

or “Curiouser and curiouser!” – Alice in Wonderland.

I think that just describes me very well. I’d probably add the Cheshire Cat next to it.

or “I am haunted by humans.” – The Book Thief

This really speaks to the poet in me.

  1. What’s a secret talent you only bring out on rare occassions?

Well, it wouldn’t be a secret talent if I told you now, would it?

*tries to hide her talentless ass behind a book*

5. What are your favourite kind of posts to reads?

Hmm….discussions post. Besides literature related posts, I like reading some lifestyle blogs and Brain Pickings.

6. Follow up: Do you actually read them or are you a skimmer?

It depends. Sometimes when I can’t concentrate, I skim through them. But I always like posts when I plan on reading them properly later on.

7. Who’s your fictional crush and who would you cast IRL to play them?

Matrim Cauthon from The Wheel of Time. I have the biggest and most embarrassing crush on him.

Can I say Ezra Miller? Not because they look alike but…I just…my two crushes…you know… *blushes furiously*

8. If I came over for a junk food/movie night – what are we watching and what are we eating?

You wouldn’t be wishing this unless you enjoy horror movies! I love watching horror movies with spicy tapioca chips. It’s a habit I picked up from my dormer days.

Buuut if horror isn’t your thing, I enjoy historical movies 🙂

9. What is go-to guilty pleasure book?

Illusions of Love by Kasey Michaels. First romance book I actually enjoyed.

10. Who was the first artist/band you saw live in concert?

Never been to one! If I did though, I’d choose Panic! At The Disco, Pierce The Veil, or Mayday Parade.

11. What’s one of your favourite book quotes?

I love collecting curse words or dramatic words from books. It makes me feel fancy. I can go from, “What fresh hell is this?” to “Blood and Bloody Ashes!” to “How about a kiss for your jailbird brother?”

I’d like to think I’m pretty suave.
