Questions from Nina
What’s your favourite era / decade? Why?
I have to say between 1997 and 2007. I know it’s like mid-decades, but I was in highschool and just afterwards. I love the music from that time (so so many amazing bands that I still listen to), and it also covers the time that I lived in the UK (and went to a midnight book launch for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix on my birthday).
If you want a reason that doesn’t revolve around my life, I’d go with 2000-2010. Technology is just starting to really take off, medical advances are happening and the global community is starting to evolve. The Renaissance era was pretty cool in terms of art though (and only lasted about 20 years).
What’s your least favourite genre to read? Why?
Thriller and horror stories for sure. I am an absolute scaredy-cat and watched far too many twilight zone, x-files and zombie things when I was a youngling. I was also subjected to a vinyl recording of War of the Worlds at the age of seven, permanently freaking me out about aliens and world invasions for the remainder of history (thanks, parents). Surprisingly I didn’t develop an aversion to reading sci-fi.
What’s your favorite day of the week?
Saturday! It’s my first sleep in of the week. Hubby and I usually make something delicious for brunch, and you have the whole of the weekend stretching out in front of you with endless possibilities. ?
Do you sing along with your favorite song when you hear it?
I sing along to basically every song that I have even the smallest inkling of the words. So, yes.
What’s your favorite movie / Show? Why?
Oh man. I’m still procrastinating about the Television Shows tag for this reason. I have to say, I’m a Marshmallow. I love Veronica Mars. More than anything else. Only just, but it reigns supreme. (Mostly I love her sarcasm and wit. Also I’m 100% #teamlogan)
Text message or call?
TEXT!! I hate phone calls more than talking to people in person. It’s because I can’t read facial expressions, but I still have to be quick in responding. I also find it hard to concentrate on calls because I get distracted easily. However, calls do force me to respond immediately (when I answer). I prefer texts because I can think about what to say, but at the same time, sometimes I think about it for so long I talk myself out of responding…
Do you read before bed?
Usually. Sometimes. I used to a lot more. But I have been lately.
Salt or sweet?
Basically this answer comes down to Cadbury pineapple chocolate or cheezels. YOU CAN’T MAKE ME CHOOSE.
Do you believe in love at first sight?
NO. (I really don’t have anything more to add to this.)
Name one book you read (or bought) because of the cover
Ink by Alice Broadway. (I did DNF it, but I’ve been recommended to go back and read it because it’s worth it. I’m considering it.)
