Anthony’s questions

How many books can you read at once?
I am so bad at this… You only have to check out my ‘currently reading’ tab on Goodreads to see how many books I pick up and then change my mind on!! But actual reading, I tend to just read one at a time. I’m not really a switcher.
What book that hasn’t been adapted into film/tv would you like to see adapted?
Errrrr… well, after yesterday’s post on my thoughts about adaptations, let’s leave this one blank for now!!
Which 3 books would you buy right now, if you were given enough money for them?
OK, hardbacks are so expensive in Australia because shippings costs increase with the weight of the book, so I’ve got a lot of books on my Book Depository wishlist (free shipping!) but the costs of these books is currently between $35-60 (AUD) per book.

  • Air Awakens – Elise Kova ($55.88)
  • The Girl in the Tower – Katherine Arden ($37.46)
  • Terry Pratchett’s Discworld Imaginarium – Paul Kidby ($54.01)

What is your favorite dessert?
Black forest cake with thickened cream. Or pavlova with crushed mint crisp and strawberries. Or salted caramel mousse cake. Damn I want cake now!
Where would you like to travel to one day?
If you could meet anyone in the world, who would it be?
My go to answer for this used to be Stan Lee. Before that it was Terry Pratchett. If I have to pick someone still alive I’d probably choose Maggie Stiefvater.
Would you ever get a tattoo? If so, what would you get?
I already have eight tattoos, but my next one will be another quote. From Nevernight. With a black cat.
Do you have any pets?
Yes! I have three cats – 2 black and 1 grey. (⬇︎ This is from their insta page)

From left: Cat, Fluffy, Kitten (no, that’s not their real names, just what we call them)

If you were given a personal chef for a day, what would you have them cook for you?
Oooh, for a whole day?! All of the abovementioned cakes. Plus bacon, eggs and waffles for breakfast, a really delicious chicken caesar salad for lunch, and a roast dinner (lamb, beef or pork – I’m not fussed which) with potato gratin, roast cauliflower and carrots, and peas.
What is your favorite hobby/activity to do?
Ummm, read? I also like to bake.
What would your superpower be?
I don’t want a superpower. I’d rather have magic.
