So, Armchair BEA happened in the week 23-27 May… I’m only a little late posting this! Monique at The Book Mystress kindly agreed to exchange interviews with me – you can see my answers to her questions (do go check them out, I’m rather proud of my wit…).
Without further ado, her answers:
Why did you start blogging? Because I am a writer and a number of people told me not to put book reviewing and writing in the same blog.
If you could visit the setting of a particular book, which one would you go for? (e.g. would you visit 1990s Sydney in Looking for Alibrandi, or 19th century Hampshire in Pride & Prejudice) Being an Aussie and tired, I would say Looking for Alibrandi or maybe Interview with a Vampire
Do you do any weekly memes (Booking Through Thursday, Top Ten Tuesday) and if so, which are your favourites and why? I do BTT, TTT, and IMM, they are my favorites, I sometimes do others.
Describe or put a photo of your book shelves/cases? I don’t have a picture, but one is little and brown, the other is big and brown, they aren’t chockers with books… but they almost are, I have recently moved and have brought 30 plus books since, #notaddicted!
What is the most exotic place you’ve visited? Sydney, Australia ❤
What would be your chosen superpower? Super Speed
You can make a law about reading, libraries, books etc. What law would you make? hmmm, I am not sure at all, they should be cheaper? It should cost less to ship books over seas? I don’t know!
Thunderstorms – Mega Hate (Note from RFBT: We must agree to disagree on this one – see my ode to a thunderstorm!)
Sheep – They’re alright…
Apple’s dominance of the world – hate it because of the prices
Google’s dominance of the world – yay Google!
Amazon’s dominance of the book world – booo, I shop at THE BOOK DEPOSITORY
Coffee with adjectives (grande skinny decaf hazelnut…) – Dont drink Coffee
Small children – they’re cute
Time off work when genuinely sick (does the time off outweigh the misery of being ill) – I’m not sure, I don’t think so
Bicycles – meh
Pink shirts on men – depends on the man
Long dangly earrings – cute on some people
Hardback books that are too heavy to read anywhere but sitting down at home – thats true, I hate the dust covers on hardbacks too…
