Let’s do this!
1: Favourite Movie/TV show based on a book?
-Game of Thrones. The TV-series is almost as epic as the books, and the writers and directors has only done necessary or non annoying changes.
2: What would be your spirit animal, and why?
-Cat. I’m independent, spoiled (by my fiancé) and will get random bursts of energy from nowhere. And that is just some of the traits that me and my cat Smokie share.
3: If you could live in any fictional world, which would you pick and why?
-I want to go to Hogwarts!!!(Yes, me too^^) And of all the worlds that I love, I would probably survive longest among wizards than other options.
4: If you could have any magical ability, what would it be?
-I usually avoid questions like this one, but here comes the mood killer. Healing. I’ve lost too many people I love to illness and I don’t want to lose anyone else. I hate having my biggest fear realised over and over again..
5: What was the first book you remember loving?
-The Darkangel by Meredith Ann Pierce. It’s still one of my favourites and really unique. Pierce has a very distinctive writing style and I’m hoping she’ll write something new one day.
6: If you could only recommend one book to everyone, what would it be?
-Hello Kitty Must Die by Angela S. Choi. It is my absolute favourite contemporary book!!! It is so funny, dark and twisted and I laugh out loud every time I read it. I have not come across anything like it before or since.
7: What are you reading right now?
-The Night Circus and Blood of Dragons. I have had a mountain of things to do for the last couple of days so I read TNC when I get an hour of peace and have BOD as an audiobook while I’m on the tube, cleaning etc.
8: What is your favourite mythical creature?
-Fey/fairies/goblins etc. Stories about them have fascinated me since I was a child and there’s still books being created with them that are fantastic! There’s so much creative writing one can do with the legends.
9: Favourite opening line/lines of a book.
-”Once upon a time..” That’s the only one I can think of, so I guess it’s my favourite?
10: Name something completely unrelated to books that you love.
-Planting and growing plants. I love it! Making something grow and live by my own hands is so rewarding. Every year I plant something new and tries my hardest to make it flourish. Mostly plants that does not grow in Sweden like lemon trees and passionfruit. The last thing I tried to plant was an acorn. I failed.. But I will trie again! I want a oak tree inside!
11: Who is you all time favourite author?
-There’s 4 of them. Robin Hobb, Sarah J Maas, JK Rowling and George RR Martin. There’s no way I could choose between them.
Here are my nominations. They’re all so good and I hope you’ll check them out and that they have fun with this tag!
