I’m.. ashamed to admit I’ve been ignoring / neglecting all kinds of tags and awards. Mainly because I once posted about not doing them anymore since they were getting pretty repetitive and.. I got tired of doing them, But it’s been months and months since I did one so.. When Elysa @ Elysa Reads It All tagged me, I decided to just go with it and answer her questions!

AND HERE ARE THE QUESTIONS ELYSA ASKED ME TO ANSWER!
- What are you currently reading?
Well, this is a mean one. I mean.. I’m writing this post over a week before it’s going up on my blog so.. Anyway! My current reads are The Beautiful by Renée Ahdieh and Lifel1k3 by Jay Kristoff. Consider me done for since Jay always rips my heart out.
- How many books have you read so far this year?
I put my goal at 75 and I’ve read over 80 so far!
- What’s your favorite book you’ve read this year?
I hate that question. Uhm. The best contemporary books I’ve read, are Speak, Summer Bird Blue and 100 Days of Sunlight. Out of those three, I might say the latter is my favorite one due to the temporary blindness and amputee rep!
As for fantasy / science fiction.. Definitely Once & Future and Tellus! Both are diverse and amazingly written, in my humble opinion. [The link on Tellus goes back to my review of Imber, the first book in the series.]
- Waffles or pancakes?
I have to go with waffles since it’s been ages since I ate those. I’m craving them now. Can someone make me some? Please?
- What’s your favorite TV show?
Oh! Well.. I barely have time for TV anymore, but I’m always down for a rewatch of The Originals.
- What’s your favorite color?
Have you seen my blog? Or maybe my car? Pretty sure blue’s the right answer here, haha!
- What song can always lift your mood?
I’m usually listening to rock, but when I need my mood lifted I’m 100% putting up Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson & Bruno Mars because.. you know.
- What is something about you that usually surprises other people?
Honestly? My collection of books; the fact I have a book blog. Both those things tend to surprise people?
- What blog memes do you participate in?
I used to participate in Top Ten Tuesdays and WWW Wednesday and Waiting on Wednesday and.. I think there was a fourth one? Nowadays it’s only WWW Wednesday though. I barely have the time anymore.. Wish I could at least go back to posting TTT’s but we’ll see!
- Do you read graphic novels or manga?
Sometimes! I have two on my TBR. I always try picking up more of them but for some reason I like “normal” books better?
- What fictional place would you most like to visit?
I don’t want to be yet another person answering “Hogwarts”, but it would be nice? I mean? Right? On the other hand, I would love to visit the world of A Curse So Dark and Lonely!
And then the most fun part! Tagging others! Every blogger is a little ray of sunshine, so I’m going to tag some random people. I hope you like my questions!
