What’s your name and what is your top-rated book of 2021 so far?
My name is Sophia and my latest god-tier book has to be Circe by Madeline Miller.
If you could set one book on fire, what would it be and why?
Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple stories because the only situation where I had to consider burning a book was if I were about to freeze to death, and it’s currently recordest as the thickest book.
Tell me a book you’d want to live inside and why?
Any book that has to do with magic, kingdoms and dragons, because who wouldn’t want to live in a world like this 😀
What’s something you’d change about your current read and why?
If it were more descriptive and have fewer thought bubbles. I am currently reading a horror book and so far, it’s still very focused on the mindless thoughts of the characters, and not much of the spooky aspect of the story.
Describe the perfect date with your book boyfriend/girlfriend.
As a fellow bookworm, you know it’s hard to pick one book boyfriend!
A perfect date with him would start with a walk or tour around town (or his kingdom hahah), maybe he would teach me a skill (like horseback riding), shop for a book or two, then end with a romantic candlelight picnic under the stars and fireflies.
Tell me what makes a book a quick page-turner?
A lot of factors can contribute, but mainly if the story has intriguing dialogue, if it’s fast-paced, descriptive, and has a great writing style.
Do you like to watch tv shows and movies based on books and why?
Adaptions are more of a hit-or-miss with me. On one hand, I don’t prefer watching them after reading a book because it may differ from the initial thoughts and imagination I had in my head; but I do enjoy watching them for the cinematography, CGI, and the director’s and actor’s interpretation.
What book are you most excited to read next?
Once Upon a Broken Heart by Stephanie Garber is at the top of my most anticipated reads list!
Give me a plug of something you’d love all bookish people to purchase and why it’s superb.
When I started really getting into reading, a mug warmer and a book sleeve became my best friends. It’s always nice to have a drink when you’re reading and even better if your drink always stays warm even if you forget it’s there. A book sleeve is also a real must-have since it helps keep your book safe in your bag, if it rains, or if you accidentally drop it.
