Thank you to Hannah from Hannah’s Brilliant Book Corner for nominating She Latitude! I am deeply honoured. Apologies for how long it took me to actually post this, though; uni and work kept me really busy. :p
1) Thank the blogger who nominated you and add a link to their blog in your post.
2) Answer the questions provided by the blogger who nominated you.
3) Nominate ten other bloggers.
4) Create ten questions for your nominees and notify them of their nomination.
1) What is your favorite book and why?
Every time this question gets asked, I feel horrible because I honestly don’t have the one favourite book. I have comfort books (Jennifer Crusie’s Bet Me, Lisa Kleypas’ Devil in Winter and Julia Quinn’s Romancing Mister Bridgerton), but I don’t have favourites.
2) How or why did you start book blogging?
This isn’t an exciting tale, I’m afraid. I started because I was bored and I needed a project to spend my time on. I love being productive-slash-busy and this blog so far has ensured that I always have something to do, which is great!
3) Who is your favorite author?
Haruki Murakami, for his surrealism and the way he takes ordinary things under a lens and really bring it to the next level.
4) Which book is your least favorite in a series?
My enjoyment of a series typically goes downhill after the first book… so most likely the last one. It’s usually dissatisfying because they’re sometimes too focused on tying up certain loose ends that they forget characterisation, world-building, and all that fun stuff I love in the first book.
5) What is your ultimate OTP? (One true pair/ship)
In the book universe, it’s probably Draco and Hermione from the Harry Potter series. I’m a huge fan of the whole hate/love relationship thing, and I think they’re both surprisingly suitable for each other if they can get past their history. Besides, there are some wonderful fanfiction for this couple!
6) Which book do you love, but you hate the movie?
It’s actually surprisingly rare where I love a book and hate the movie. What often happens is I prefer the movie to the book (The Hunger Games and The Maze Runner series) or I just hate the book and the movie all the same.
7) If you had to pick one book to recommend to a friend, which would it be and why?
On Writing by Stephen King. It’s a wonderful book about the ins and outs of the craft and it’s quite chockfull of useful advice and motivation, if writing is your thing. Otherwise… perhaps The Rosie Project. It’s set in Melbourne, so it’s particularly close to my heart.
8) Have you ever seen a movie, but never read the book?
I’ve seen tons of movies whose books I haven’t read yet! The Help comes to mind because I just watched it several days ago, and it made me cry big fat ugly angry tears.
9) What is your favorite book genre?
My favourites have always been cyclical in nature because I get bored easily, and what’s my favourite now will most likely not be my favourite in three months… but my current favourite is YA, which is why you’re seeing lots of YA-related content in my blog. Before this, though, I didn’t touch any YA in about six months.
10) Last but not least, who is your favorite BookTuber?
I don’t watch BookTubes, sorry!
I’m really super new to the book blogging world and I don’t really know who’s done what, so if I nominate you and you’ve done this before, please feel free to ignore this!
