I was honestly just thinking of blog post ideas when I saw this popping up, haha.

Okay, and where does it say that I have to answer the questions Siobhan has asked me? Nowhere? Oh, so I don’t have to answer those? Brilliant!
Three things you really [don’t?] want to know about me
I honestly have no clue what to tell you guys, since I just… assume you would ask me if you want to know something? Really, I don’t bite!
Okay, seriously. A little while back I saw a blog post about people never believing who’s behind that awesome blog. I cannot for the life of me find that blog post, so if someone has seen it.. Shout!
Okay, number one. I have piercings. And tattoos. Yes, those regular ones in my ears, but I have two extra piercings in my left ear and I want to add to them. Someday when I figure out how not to get my hair stuck in them.
As for my tattoos? I currently have five. “Always” – yes, it’s a cliche by now, but it’s like.. my whole childhood in one word. – is on my right wrist. Then you have my life motto, a sentence out of a song of Papa Roach – all time favorite band, people! – “I’d rather die on my feet than live my life on my knees.” I have two birds near my collar bones, a little pineapple near my left ear and a ginormous Nightmare before Christmas-tattoo on my right shoulder blade. That one was so freakishly impulsive. Like.. On a holiday to London for a week-impulsive.
Didn’t that count for like ten things about me already?
Anyway. Number two: I’m addicted to all things pasta. I wouldn’t be bothered at all if I had to eat spaghetti for the rest of my life. Just bring it.
Number three: I really want to move to London one day, but who knows if that will ever actually happen…
Seriously, the rules didn’t say anything about answering these?! Haha.
Who is your guilty pleasure author / series? Do you love to hate it or hate to love it?
Oh boy.. Now I really have to think because I don’t really do the “guilty”-thing. I rarely feel guilty for loving or hating something. Everyone has his/her own opinion, right? But one of the series people would look at as “guilty pleasure” is probably Twilight. I’d like to reread them someday, but I’m afraid Bella is going to annoy me now that I’m [a little bit – cough] older.
What is the latest book you’ve read that you’ve absolutely hated/loved?
Easypeasy. The Inevitable Collision of Birdie & Bash by Candace Ganger of which you can find my review here and read just why I loved it.
What bothers you in your favorite genre (e.g., love triangles in YA)?
Uh. I know that a lot of people have trouble with some of the cliches that keep coming back, but I honestly don’t. I’ve left this question for last to think about it – even slept on it – but I seriously cannot think of one thing…
What is the most underrated book/series/author?
Siobhan, you hate me? Don’t you? Why would you do this to me?! And not just this question, to be clear. All of them! Except the second; that one was doable, haha.
After doing some legit research on my Goodreads-page, I decided on White Cat By Holly Black. I have yet to read the sequels, but I remember enjoying this book enormously and it’s been a long time since reading it. So that has to count for something.
If you could pick a book you wanted to change, chich book is it, and how would you change it?
Since I said something about Twilight earlier, I cannot help but use it for this question as well because I would simply LOVE to erase the sparkly part of vampires. It’s too ridiculous and totally degrading. Vampires are not supposed to sparkle, people.
My best / favorite post
Oh boy. I’ve only been blogging for five weeks and you’re doing this to me already… I guess if I really have to pick one, it would be my review on It starts with L by Cassandra Fear. Why? Because it’s the first ARC I read that I wrote a review for and I was so proud of it too, haha.
Sorry if you’ve recently been tagged for this or just aren’t that into tags/awards, haha!
If you were obliged to reread one book every month for the rest of your life, which one would it be?
What bookstore do you definitely want / need to visit one day?
If you have pick one book from your bookshelves to burn or destroy, which book would it be?
How many and what reading challenges are you participating in this year?
How many books are on your TBR – the physical and digital one combined?
Have fun, guys!
