The questions Naty gave me:
1. Which book made you happy while reading it?
This is immediately a tough one to start with! Simply because the reading itself already makes me happy as it is. But if I do have to pick a book, I’d go with Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things. This book made me laugh so hard at times.
2. What is your favorite thing to do for relaxing?
Ha, reading! No extra explanation needed for this one. Just me, my books and my armchair equals one happy Kathy.
3. What is your favorite season?
Winter. Not the snowy winters, but just the regular cold one in which you can curl up on the couch with a mug of hot chocolate to warm yourself. Eat fresh, homemade soup everyday. And if it has to snow, preferably when I’m inside so I can watch the flakes fly by, haha. I hate going out in the snow…
4. What is something you love about yourself?
My perseverance. When I want to do something, achieve something, I’m stubborn and will do anything in my power to actually get there. It has helped me a great deal during my life, at times where others were backing out and I just kept going.
5. What keeps you blogging?
The passion I have for books, reading and wanting to share all that with as many people as possible. Having and taking the opportunity to share books with all of you. Books that you might never pick up if you don’t hear of them through some sort of channel.
6. What is a song that makes you happy?
Crazy Little Thing Called Love from Queen. Just the tune of it makes me happy already, even just thinking about it!
7. What is your dream vacation?
Hm. I’d really like to go on a trip through America one day. Maybe even for months. Just travelling from once city to the other, exploring, doing whatever I want. Having the opportunity to see bands perform that rarely come to Europe. And – seriously important! – browsing as many bookstores as I can!
8. Which fictional character would you like to be friends with?
Oh boy. There are so many. Jace, Simon, Will, Julian? Jem! And.. And.. Kaz! Iko! Too many options…
9. What is a book you recommend for someone going on vacation?
I’m a goner for romantic, easy-reading novels when I’m on vacation. So all books of Katie Fforde would probably be good. Or one I read last week, Married in Montana by Jane Porter. Otherwise, I’d just say: take one or two giant books with you instead of a ton of thinner ones. [Try and save place so you can buy more books wherever you are.]
10. Coffee, tea or wine or other?
I’m addicted to Monster. Seriously. There are so many flavors as well! Coffee is something I’ve never liked in my life, up until three months ago. Work finally got to me, I was tired as hell and out of Monster – yes, that happened and I was horrified – so I caved and grabbed a coffee. With an overload of milk, haha.
11. Favorite pizza toppings?
Two ways to go here. Back when I was still able to handle greasy food, I’d have a pizza with kebab, bell peppers, mushrooms and a load of garlic sauce. Recently I’ve been picking Hawaii more and more though.
My god, I feel like eating pizza now… And I didn’t make plans on what to eat tonight yet. Score!
