Do you read books in other language(s)?
I would love to read books in Italian, but that means I need to work on my Italian. Sigh. There are not enough hours in the day.
If only I actually spoke another language …maybe one day!
What was the last book you stayed up late to finish reading?
What is that one book you bought because of the cover and liked the story after reading?
This is a hard one for me. I don’t buy books because of the cover unless I’ve already read it or have an interest in reading it and there are multiple cover options. Otherwise, the last book I can remember buying for the cover is Evelina by Frances Burney and I still haven’t read it. That was a few years ago.
Omens by Kelley Armstrong! I’m a sucker for buying books just because they’re pretty. I bought the first three books because I liked the covers and the series ended up being one my favourites.
Which is your favourite season, and which type of book do you wanna read in that season?
FALL. Always and forever fall. The temperature is ideal and it’s a great lead up to my favourite holidays. I want to say I would read witchy books, but I also don’t necessarily read for the season. I mostly read whatever catches my fancy at that time.
My favourite season is Fall and every year I just fill September to November with as many witchy books as I can get my hands on. Give me witches, magic, and a dash of the supernatural with a cool fall air and falling leaves and I am a happy reader.
What type of characters do you want to read more in books?
I am going to steal Amber’s answer. Morally grey characters are the most interesting. For instances, I think that is partly why Game of Thrones is so well loved. The characters are human. I am tired of reading about characters who are wholly good or wholly evil. It becomes predictable.
Morally grey. I’m tired of reading about characters that are just white or black, inherently good or inherently bad. I want a hero who isn’t that good a person, or a villain that I kind of want to win. I want characters that are more realistic in that they don’t always made decisions for the greater good, but for themselves, or they might be doing something bad for with good intentions.
