I was nominated by Aditi at Readers Rule, whose blog is fantastic and should definitely be checked out❤︎
I was meaning to do this before the new year, but time got away from me
(and I got sick, ugh), so here it is now. Better late than never~

Q1. What are your all time favourite books (the ones you recommend to everyone)?
I recommend The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch, If We Were Villains by M.L. Rio, Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo, Monsters of Verity by Victoria Schwab, and the like, a lot. But my all time favourites are those and Ash by Malinda Lo, Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour, Otaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii by Fujita, Durarara!! by Narita Ryogo, and a bunch more.
Q2. What things you generally keep in mind while reviewing a book?
I tend to focus on characters a lot. If I like at least one of the characters I’m gonna find something positive to write, surely lol I do try to keep in mind not to be overly negative at times too, but sometimes a negative review’s a good thing. No one likes every book after all
(Falling Kingdoms, I’m looking at you).
Q3. What would be the overall best book you read this year?
I haven’t read anything yet this year (total cop-out answer). Okay, for 2017, the best book I read was… If We Were Villains by M.L. Rio. I wanted to reread it immediately after finishing, I recommended it to family, friends, teammates at work and the newbies I was mentoring at the time as well. I think everyone was getting sick of me recommending it, but I WILL NEVER STOP. I love it so much❤︎
Q1. If your favourite book was going to be adapted into a play/movie/TV show/game/etc, what format would you not want it to be adapted to?
Q2. What’s something you haven’t done, but really want to try doing someday?
