Questions from Siobhan
So far, what are your top three reads this year?

I am definitely going to have the worst time this year cutting my top 10 down to a top 10. In fact, I’ve already been thinking about doing a top 10 fantasy and a top 10 contemporary/romance list because… then I get to name 20 books and I keep reading amazing books and OMFG I still have so many anticipated books to come out this year. (Can you tell I’m stalling from answering the question??) Oooh, I know. Let’s practice this now.
Top 3 fantasy:

Top 3 Contemporary/Romance:

Which author would you do anything to see?

Maggie Stiefvater… well, probably not ‘anything’… I mean, I could fly to the US and go to her writing workshop…

What TV or movie adaptation are you eagerly wanting to watch?

The Raven Boys (but also with trepidations… we all know how I feel about adaptations…)

What book are you looking forward to most?

This is another toss up. My most anticipated book for 2019 was always Darkdawn by Jay Kristoff, but now we’re also getting The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black.

What type of post do you like writing?

I like writing recommendations and lists, but I need to schedule them into my blogging schedule more frequently!

Who is your latest OTP (one true pairing)?

Latest (as in most recent) is Phoebe and Josh from Freshmen by Tom Ellen and Lucy Ivison (and they’re not even a thing in the book… I just think they have that beautiful friendship base where they would have an amazing foundation if they did take the next step).

What is the last book that made you ugly cry?

The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang

What is a series you haven’t finished yet but want to?

I am mostly waiting on releases, but in terms of books that are out… I should probably read A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab.

If you could have any special edition book, which would it be?

The Goldsboro edition of Nevernight by Jay Kristoff (because I have the Godsgrave, and I’ve ordered the Darkdawn, so I want to complete the set.

If you would rerewatch your favourite TV show or movie, which one would you choose?

My go to answer for this was always Veronica Mars, but I am pissed at them for the new series… so, the BBC Pride and Prejudice.

What fictional pet/sidekick is your favourite?

Mogget from The Old Kingdom series by Garth Nix.
