Sophie’s Questions for Me!

  1. What are your favorite books of 2020 so far?

I’m reading American Gods right now for the first time and I love it so much that I’m savoring it slowly. It’s like a fine wine and it needs to be taken in sips, lol. I also really loved my re-read of The Great Gatsby that was my first read of the year. Those are the two that jump to the front of my mind off the bat.

2. Where do you write your blog?

Well…. everywhere. I write at work if it’s a busy day but usually somewhere in the sanctity of my home. At my desk or in the living room or in the kitchen. When this pandemic is over though I’m definitely going to try swinging by a coffee shop or the library to mix it up a little!

3. Which type of blog post do you like reading the most?

I love reading poetry. Give me poetry any day and every day. It feeds my soul well.

4. Which type of blog post do you like writing the most?

Haha! Well, poetry because it’s short and sweet and/or packs a punch right to your heart.

5. What book format do you like the most? (e.g. physical book, eBook, audiobook?)

PHYSICAL BOOKS ALL THE WAY! My eyes are so sensitive and I already spend so much time at a computer so when I want to relax I need to feel the pages in my hands, breathe in that book scent and give my eyes a well deserved rest.

6. If you could travel to one place in the world, where would you travel to?

I want to go to London. I’ve always wanted to go there and right now it feels so far away and so out of reach. Literally and metaphorically.

7. Favorite dessert?

Ice creammmmmmm.

8. If you are stranded on an island, and you can choose to keep either your cellphone or a lifetime supply of books, which would you choose? ( Clarification: Your phone has internet and cell reception but you cannot use it to get yourself off the island.)

Lifetime supply of books. (But also I wish I could have the phone to to call my family and friends…. this one is hard….)

9. Which book do you remember most vividly?

Clockwork Angel because I have read that book WAY too many times, and it has given me dramatically skewed interpretations of men.

10. Would you rather eat good food or wear fashionable clothing?

Good food all the wayyyyyyy.

    1. Exactly!!!!! I love the feeling of holding the book in my hand and coming up with my own interpretations of the characters’ voices in my head. It makes me so much more present too when I read 😀

  1. I need to read The Great Gatsby, I’ve heard mix reviews of the book, but I think it’s one of those I must read. I mean, it must be good if you’ve put it on your fave books of 2020 so far right? And you reread it, sooo. I’ll totally read it soon.

    Blogging at a coffee shop would be SO cute!!! Love that!

    I love poetry too, your poems are so beautiful, I love them. Do you follow Kiya at Flawed_Silence? https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/36524155/posts/2658961386 I’ve linked one of her poems, her writing is wonderful!

    I so agree about physical books too, also I like to spend as much time as possible off a screen, so reading a physical book is a must for me! Ebooks are great too, everything has it’s place hehe 🙂

    When you come to London, I will totally be your tour guide 😀

    What is this Clockwork Angel book? I am SO intrigued now!

    ALSO WHAT ON EARTH IS A GHOST PEPPER??? – I’m watching a youtube video now looool…

    okay no way would I eat a ghost pepper loool. no way!!

    Loved reading this hun, thanks for sharing and of course, congrats on the award too!!!

    Have a great weekend ❤

    1. There is something just so REAL about The Great Gatsby that keeps me coming back to it, but I totally get how some might not like it! I do adore it though. 😀 And thank you so much!!!! I love writing poetry and when it resonates with someone that means the world to me ❤ ❤ I'll definitely check Kiya out too! And YESS BE MY LONDON TOUR GUIDE 😀 I'll get there someday, I keep telling myself, and hopefully if I keep putting it out there the universe will listen! Thanks for commenting, you brought a huge smile to my face and you have a FANTASTIC weekend too!!! ❤ ❤ ❤

  2. Hi Jai Lynn!!
    Thank you for doing this post and I loved reading your answers ❤️
    The Great Gatsby is on my TBR. I read the graphic novel adaptation recently which tempted me to read the actual classic. I’m hoping to get to it soon!
    I am also looking forward to sitting in coffee shops again! I used to love to go to the cafe to work on my blog or novel. It’s one of the things I missed most from pre-pandemic.
    Although I read ebooks 90% of the time, I do agree that it feels great to take a break from staring at a laptop/phone screen haha. Probably better for the eyes 🙂
