#1: Color crazy
Pick a color that matches your emotion when you’re reading your favorite book.
Hmm, what is my happy color? I sometimes associate things with color, the thought is very sudden, comes out of nowhere. But I don’t have a favorite color so I guess I’ll just pick a favorite book and choose the color it makes me think of?
Blue – The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden
#2: Favorite movie
Pick the best book-to-movie adaptation.
Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. The Studio Ghibli film diverges from the book in several places, but what the heck, it’s still just as magical and beautiful.
#3: Favorite song at the moment
What is your favorite song at the moment? Pick a book that you feel is the same as your favorite song.
I’m obsessed, and I mean obsessed with So ist es immer from the Attack on Titan soundtrack. It’s undoubtedly a bittersweet song, sad mostly, but is strangely uplifting. It’s half in German and half in English. The book it suits most is Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson.
#4: Book slump:
Name a book that put you in a reading slump.
I read this children’s book back in 2016. It was so terrible I felt a slump approaching as I was reading it. Sure enough, the slump lasted me a good long while. The book was called Loki’s Wolves by K.L. Armstrong.
#5: Book shopping
Name a book that you spent way too much money on.
Sadly, and fortunately, I’ve refrained from spending a lot on books. I never splurge. It’s always within my budget and carefully picked.
#6: Empty pockets
Name a book that you really want but you don’t have the money for.
Someday, I would like to own the illustrated editions of all Harry Potter books…!
#7: The Golden trio
Name an iconic group of friends besides Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley.
The Bastards! Just read The Lies of Locke Lamora, why don’t you? I love these little shits so much.
Name your top 3 favorite books.
- Stain by A.G. Howard
- LIFEL1K3 by Jay Kristoff
- The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker
#9: Never ending tbr
Name a book that you want to add to your never ending tbr.
I don’t have anything specific in mind, but I think more of Stephen King books because everybody needs pant-wetting cringy horror stories in their life.
Name a book that is popular but you haven’t read yet.
Oh, the Throne of I Don’t Care and the Court of Whatever the Funk series.
Name a book that gives you all the feels.
Strange the Dreamer and Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor. My God, I’ve never pined for a book to be turned into a film so bad. My mind goes to such exquisite places whenever I read or think about this duology.
#12: Movie night
Name a book-to-movie series adaptation that you’ve binge-watched.
Harry Potter. Honestly, there’s no better answer. When I see one, I see all the rest. It’s kind of a ritual.
#13: Omg no spoilers please
Name a book that you’ve been spoiled for.
Oh, I don’t remember any recent ones but if it counts I was spoiled about the endings to the Order of the Phoenix and the Half-blood Prince by a cousin. Yeah, thanks a bunch for nothing, little miss know-it-all. It was back when I hadn’t read more than 2 Harry Potter books and I was kinda focused on the films only.
#14: Sweet but sour
Name a book that is sweet but is sour in some way.
I’m guessing this means bittersweet? I’d pick Amar Bail by Umerah Ahmed. Literally all of her books are heart-breaking in some way or the other but the love story in Amar Bail was a special kind of torture. I binge-read it like an absolute maniac.
