I was thinking that I want to do more tags and what do I see? The 5 W’s book tag on Shanah’s blog! What great timing you have, friend.
1 – WHO? Who is an author you’d love to have a one on one with?
There are a few, actually! Nicholas Eames, author of Kings of the Wyld and Bloody Rose, seems like the coolest dude ever. I’d also love to hang out with Becky Chambers, author of the Wayfarers books and generally glorious human, but I would probably just end up shrieking at her. That wouldn’t go over well.
2 – WHAT? What genre or style do you most gravitate to?
Science fiction and fantasy mostly, but I definitely go through phases! No matter how much I read, I’m alway going to come back to these two genres though.
3 – WHERE? Where do you prefer to read?
Where do I prefer to read? In my glorious reading chair with a cat (probably Dax) in my lap. Where do I usually end up reading? On the bloody bus.
4 – WHEN? What time of the day do you prefer to read?
I love to read in the middle of the day, but that doesn’t really happen because I work full time! In the early evening tends to be the best time for me to read during the week though. Imagine getting off the bus, rushing home, and diving under a blanket on the sofa — bliss!
5 – WHY? Why is your favourite book your favourite book?
I don’t think I could pinpoint a single favourite book — I love so many books for so m any different reasons! I think the main thing I can say is that I love books that make me feel. Whether I’m feeling happiness, sorrow, absolute gut-wrenching despair, or pure joy, I’m loving it!
BONUS! How do you go about selecting what you’ll read next?
I genuinely just whip a book off the shelf and chuck it in my purse. Sometimes I have a tough time picking something and end up staring at the shelves for ages, but it’s usually pretty easy!
