Emma’s Questions

1. What are some TV shows or movies that you would recommend

This seems to be favourite question πŸ˜€ And there is one show that I can’t recommend enough. Guess which one? None other than GAME OF THRONES! This is an epic show and I have never seen any show better than this. if you are new into this show, then definitely you will have some trouble watching it in the beginning (because of all nudity stuff), but trust me once you reach the end of season 2, then you just can’t stop yourself from watching it. It is an addiction and after each episode, you’ll be like:

Game of thrones - I need booze
Trust me this is real πŸ˜€

 

 

Apart from this show, I would definitely recommend How to Get Away with Murder, Pretty Little Liars, Gilmore Girls and my current obsession Jane The Virgin.

If we talk about movies then the list is infinite basicallyΒ  πŸ˜› But a few of my favourites (in romance genre) are 50 First Dates, If Only, The Fault in Our Stars, A Walk to Remember, The Notebook.

 

2. For each of the shows or movies you listed above recommendation a similar book

Well, some of the choices for above names are pretty simple as most of them are based on a novel like Game of Thrones, Pretty Little Liars, The Fault in Our Stars and The Notebook. I might add here that I haven’t read any of these books πŸ˜› For How to Get Away with Murder I think any good thriller may work, though I can’t think of any at the moment as I don’t read many thrillers. And for the rest of the movies any good romance ould work πŸ™‚

 

3. Do you have any reading habits? (like reading with candles or in the bath etc)

Actually, no. I don’t have these extra props (as you can call them), but I do always keep a marker with me (if that can be counted).

 

4. What is the last book you went to a bookshop and bought?

I rarely go to bookshops as they are normally costlier than my evergreen partner Amazon πŸ˜€ But the last book I bought was Game of Thrones: 20th Anniversary Edition. I got it on pretty huge discount and how can I miss an offer? πŸ˜€ Trust me this edition is too pretty.

A Game of Thrones: Illustrated edition

 

5. Do you tend to reread books?

No, I have never reread any book and I can’t see myself doing it in near future. I mean how can I read the same book again when I am drowning under the never-ending TBR pile?

Belle's library

 

6. Do you use Goodreads? If so how do you use it?

Yes, always. Goodreads is like a second life for me when it comes to books. Well, how do I use it pretty difficult to explain (I guess)? I pretty much stalk my friends’ shelves πŸ˜€ Add the books to my TBR shelf and then just forget it for the longest time πŸ˜€ (basically I suck!). But recently I deleted my whole TBR and now I have only those books in there for which I actually have the copy and I intend to read πŸ™‚

 

7. What is the thinnest book on your shelf?

Animal Farm by George Orwell, it is just about 90 pages long but I loved it πŸ™‚

 

8. What are your favorite fantasy/sci-fi diverse reads?

I don’t think I have read much of fantasy/sci-fi so can’t actually give the correct answer to this. However, the last fantasy I read was The Crowns of Croswald and I really enjoyed it.

 

9. What are some of your least favorite book covers?

There are actually many, but for the sake of this question, I’ll just show three of them here

thirteen-reasons-why-jay-asherHeartless-paperbackEleanor & Park alternate cover

I mean these are not that bad, but their alternate editions are prettier.

 

10. Do you annotate or tab your books? If so how?

No, I don’t. I just use a marker to highlight my favourite things πŸ˜€

 

11. Who are some characters you relate to?

I can see myself be related with all the three main female leads in Wives of War. There is something in each one of them, that I see in myself too.

 

 

Jordan’s Questions

1. Do you read multiple books at once?

No, I don’t. I can’t focus on multiple stories at once.

 

2. What β€œrequired reading” book did you enjoy reading the most in school?

Well, in India, we don’t particularly have compulsory novels included in course. But I read some Premchand’s work during my school time and I really enjoyed them.

 

3. Do you like romance in books?

Yes, yes, yes! I love romance.

I love romance Gif

 

4. What’s your Hogwarts house?

Gryffindor πŸ˜€

 

5. Do you like reading outside?

No, I don’t. I have tried a few times though, but I find myself easily distracted πŸ™

 

6. Do you have any pets?

Sadly no πŸ™ We used to have two bunnies but due to some reason we gave them away. Here, I found an old pic for you πŸ™‚

My bunny

 

7. What was/is your favorite subject in school?

My favourite was Biology, though I never continued it πŸ˜€

 

8. Do you like to write?

No, not in particular, apart from writing on this blog πŸ˜€

 

9. How long have you been blogging?

I started blogging in July 2017 so it’s been 3 months πŸ™‚

 

10. Are you a fast reader?

Nooooo πŸ™ I am a very slow reader. I can hardly finish a single book in a week.

 

11. What was the first book that you fell in love with?

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green πŸ™‚

    That edition of Game of Thrones is gorgeous!! I have to admit I haven’t read any of the GoT books or seen the show… and I don’t know whether I ever will. They’re just such massive books.

    OH I love Gilmore Girls and Jane The Virgin so, so much (though I am sad not to see a particular character anymore.I will never be over this…)
    A WALK TO REMEMBER AND THE NOTEBOOK, these two are among my favorite movies as well, they are just so great. <3
    I agree that the alternate edition of Heartless is so much prettier, this one just makes me…well, I don't like it, I don't want to see it ahah. Sometimes, cover changes like these ones make me sad.
    I can't focus on multiple stories at once either – I could try, but…I don't think I would enjoy it. I'd rather give my whole attention to one book, if that makes sense? πŸ™‚
    Also, blogging for three months?! Your blog looks so stunning, I can barely believe it, ahah.
    I loved getting to know you a bit more thanks to this post! πŸ™‚ <3

      Thank you Marie ❀️ I know that character I guess.. Michael?? 😜 I don’t understand how people can concentrate on multiple books at a time πŸ™ˆ I seriously need to learn that talent πŸ˜‹ And thank you 😊 I try to make my blog better and offcourse now I can learn many things from you. Yours is equally amazing ❀️

      1. Marie

        YEEEEEEEES. I’m still not over what happened. I will forever be mad.
        Same here – I wish I could read multiple books at a time, It would help for sure with the gigantic TBR problem. Maybe someday we will πŸ˜€
        Oh that’s way too sweet of you to say, you are already so, so amazing ❀️❀️❀️
