What was your first blog post? (sorry, if this makes any of you cringe haha!)
Oh.. I had to think back for this one. My first (public 😉 ) blog post was this Easy Studying (tips & tricks)! I have to say I still stand by those so if you’re having struggles studying, check it out!
Are there any “buzzwords” in book synopses that make you pick up a book without fail?
Definitely any type of representation you don’t get to see often; an ethnicity, sexual orientation, mental illness, place, anything! Other than that, I usually enjoy anything “heist”-related. I’m also quite fond of “unusual” – when a synopsis describes the plot or characters with this word. “Time travel” is also a good shout!
What marginalized rep would you most strongly like to see more of in books?
As much as I think this would make a bigger impact onscreen, interracial couples. They’re fetishized a lot of the times and I think the issue is the little representation. Of course there are so many more under represented groups.
What are your favorite books this year?
I’ve had quite a few good books this year. To name a few: Autoboyography, The Kind Worth Killing, Brief Answers To The Big Questions, Born a Crime: Stories From a South African Childhood and a couple more!
Is there a bookish trend or trope you wish would end?
I honestly can’t think of one. Yes there are some cliché ones but frankly, if they’re done well, I don’t even mind them too much.
What’s your favorite post you’ve written?
I really enjoyed writing my Let’s Talk Bookish – Advice for Newbie Bloggers! My Us (2019) review was also kinda cool, if I do say so myself. And it was really nice to share a bit about myself in the Book Blog Newbie Tag.
More than one post, yes.. but I usually enjoy writing most of my posts so I can’t really choose!
What’s the funniest movie you’ve ever seen?
I couldn’t say. So I’ll just share a funny movie I saw recently which is Long Shot (2019)!
What’s the best joke you’ve heard? (can you tell I need a laugh .)
You know what, I haven’t heard a good joke in a while. One I read recently is “Today at the bank, an old lady asked me to help check her balance. So I pushed her over.”
Who’s your favorite musical artist?
I don’t think I have one? I like a lot of different artists. What I’ve been enjoying lately is a lot of Danna Paola, DaBaby, YBN Cordae and various Spanish artists. I’ve also been listening to Brockhampton’s new album.
Is there anything exciting happening currently or soon in your life?
Well like I said in my last post I just started law school a couple of weeks ago so that’s pretty exciting! I’m also going to a concert in a week!! I genuinely live for concerts.
What is your favorite quote?
Not necessarily my favourite since, once again, I don’t think I have one, but two I really like are “Enjoy the little things.” or “Life doesn’t wait.” Interpret however you want.
