Name a book you can’t shut up about!
That would definitely be The Gilded Wolves, by Roshani Chokshi. It is such an amazing book, and I recommend it to every single one of you.
It has beautiful writing, an incredible plot, and amazing characters. It talks on important topics such as colonialism, has an amazing cast of diverse characters, and the way that the mythology is woven into the story is incredible.
What TV show are you currently finding yourself recommending?
I always will recommend Gilmore Girls! It it is such an amazing show, and I love all of the characters so much!
Also Rory Gilmore is a main character. And she is amazing.
Whats a book cover change you really loved?
One book cover change that I really love is for the Percy Jackson series.
I love the original covers of the Percy Jackson series, and I think that they are wonderful. But I also really love the cover change that you see below. What’s really amazing about the cover change I have below is that if you lay out all five books, it comes together to create one big image.
WordPress kind of messed up the images, but all of the covers side by side in a way show the entire series.
Name a bookish Villain you are obsessed with or they were not what you expected?!
Everything about Horrid, by Katrina Leno tore me apart, but the whole villian stuff was just so confusing. I loved the book, and recommend it if you like horror novels, but the villian was shocking, and I didn’t see any of what happened coming.
I don’t want to say anything too specific because it would give a ton of stuff away, but overall, that book has a villain I never expected.
A book you’ve read that includes some star-crossed lovers ?
I can’t really think of one right now, although I’m sure I’ve read plenty of books with star-crossed lovers. If you have any recommendations though, let me know in the comments!
Whats one of your favorite diverse books? (trying to expand my reading!!)
Definitely Little and Lion, by Brandy Colbert. Little and Lion has amazing representation, and the diversity in the cast of characters is really wonderful.
It’s also an overall incredible book, and one that I definitely recommend!
Whats your favorite snack?
I don’t really know if I have one favorite snack, but I really like crackers. And dried fruit. But not together.
How do you organize your books/bookshelves (is there a method to the madness or are books just sort of…everywhere?)
I organize my bookshelf mostly by genre, and within each genre, by color. I also occasionally organize it by how much I like the book. (Books I like better and reread more often higher up, or more in the center.)
I really want to reorganize my bookshelf sometime soon though, and I think I might try doing it entirely by color, but while also keeping series together, if that makes sense.
But also there are some books that are just everywhere. I have a TBR cart, and it’s really messy right now.
A series thats perfect for binge reading?
One series that is perfect for binge reading is The Penderwicks series, by Jeanne Birdsall.
The books don’t take place exactly one after another, but the characters are all so much fun, and the books are just really amazing.
The books are also just so much fun, and always make me laugh!
Your favorite book trope (i’m stealing this one from Carly since I loved it so much hehe)?
My favorite book trope is probably found family! One amazing example of a book with the found family trope is The Gilded Wolves, by Roshani Chokshi. (I told you I can’t shut up about that book.)
I just love books with found family.
Tea or coffee?
Definitely tea. I really, really can’t stand the taste of coffee. I don’t know why, but I’ve always really disliked it. Maybe that will change someday though. Who knows?
I’m not a really hug fan of tea though, but when I have tea it’s usually some sort of fruit tea.
And I’m going to use some of Lori’s because they are amazing questions.
