Oh boy, it’s been about a millennium and a half since I participated in any sort of blog tag, but I stumbled on Sam’s Entertainer Book Tag post and loved her questions. Thanks Sam for adding me to your post!
1) Your favorite form of reading (ebook, audiobook, etc.)?
Just a good, ol’ fashioned book. I tried both ebooks and audiobooks once upon a time—the ebook lacked the physical feel and smell of a book that I loved, and I kept needing to rewind the audiobook because I was daydreaming too much.
2) If you could trade places with any other MC in their fictional world facing the same problems as them, who would you trade places with?
Easily someone from the Harry Potter series, although if I were trading places with Harry Potter, does that mean I become a female version of Harry or that I actually become a boy? It’s an important question, folks.
Okay, but seriously, I would gladly trade places with Harry and kick Voldemort’s butt, if that means I can just be a student at Hogwarts. Just Charms alone would mean chores become, dare I say it, fun to do! Plus, Harry gets his love interest, his best friends are alive, and he has his dream career. I see no downsides to this.
3) Favorite Movie?
Normally, I’d choose a movie that was adapted from one of my favorite books, or one of the many phenomenal superhero movies out nowadays, but this time, I’ll share a different kind of favorite movie: Your Name. Your Name is a Japanese anime movie that combines elements of body swap, time travel, and romance into a stunningly-animated, endearing and provoking tale.
4) What do you wish you could see more of in books?
Relatable female protagonists and diverse characters. As I’ve mentioned in a prior book tag post, most female protagonists are written as vapid and cringe-worthy, and often relegated to the side as a love interest of the complex and fascinating hero.
5) Favorite first line from a book?
“All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.”
6) A book that isn’t your favorite all time read, but one that you could read over and over again?
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.
