Answering Bookish Questions

Hello friends! I was so honored and happy to see that Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads tagged me for the Sunshine Blogger Awards, so thank you, Meeghan! Seeing how good her questions are, I immediately started to draft my post, and I’m really excited for you all to see my answers, and to share your own in the comments down below.

Answering Meeghan’s Questions:

(1) What is your favourite book youโ€™ve read so far this year, and why?

Aaand here comes Meeghan with the hard questions – I’ve read 80+ books so far this year, how am I supposed to choose one!? ๐Ÿ˜ญ If I absolutely must, I’d probably go with The Bride Test by Helen Hoang. It was so captivating from start to finish, and I absolutely loved the characters.


(2) What is your favourite book to movie adaptation?

Crazy Rich Asians. I missed out on seeing it at the cinema (it was never shown in Hungary…) but I watched it as soon as the DVD came out, and found it so impressive. From the visuals to the plot and cast, everything was perfect! It’s one of those few cases when the movie is even better than the book, in my opinion.


(3) Which fictional character do you think would be the most boring to meet in real life?

There’s probably a lot, but the first that came to my mind was Mal from the Shadow and Bone trilogy. I have a post scheduled in a few weeks where I’ll write about the romance in the series and I’ll discuss my problems with it, but until then – Mal is a very typical fuckboy, and I have very little patience for him. He does develop as a person, I’ll give him that, but even that’s boring and, to be honest, badly written.


(4) What is one thing you do to unwind?

Depending on my mood I’d either go and hang out with friends (bonus if we go shopping, and yes, that absolutely includes the bookshop), read, watch a tv show or movie, or just surf the net.


(5) If you could pick any author to write fanfiction for Harry Potter (or another series), who would you pick?

Hmm, good question! I’d probably want fanfiction for Good Omens (I know it’s not a series, but shh), aka my newest obsession, written by Austin Chant, or Caleb Roehrig.


(6) Whatโ€™s the best book title youโ€™ve ever heard of?

I’ve always loved the title of The Catcher in the Ryeย  – it makes zero sense if you haven’t read the book, but it’s mentioned in the novel in a way you cannot really miss, and it’s a perfect example of one of Holden’s rambles – overall, it just fits the book so well.


(7) Who is your OTP?

It’s so weird – I used to find all my OTPs in (YA) fantasy novels, but now all I can think of come from romances. Here are three of the top of my head:

  • Stella and Michael from The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang
  • Judd and Brenna from Caressed by Ice (Psy-Changeling #3) by Nalini Singh
  • Ruth and Evan from A Girl Like Her by Talia Hibbert

(8) If you could control one element (earth, air, fire or water), which would you choose?

I feel like fire would be the most fun, I could show off with that, but I’d still choose air – imagine, I could (probably) fly that way.


(9) Who is your favourite fictional animal? (i.e., not just dragons, but Kozu from The Last Namsara)

I think my forever favorite is Hagrid’s Hippogriff, Buckbeak, from Harry Potter. I remember I wanted one when I was a kid, and I kinda still want one, if I’m honest.


(10) What is your favourite way to treat yourself?

I think this is not going to come as a surprise, but by buying books, or cloths/shoes. Also, cake (!) and other sweets are most welcome any time I’m treating myself.


(11) What is your most anticipated book for the remainder of 2019?

I have a lot, and I mean A LOT, but I managed to narrow it down to four:

Let’s chat!

Tagging people for awards and tags always makes me nervous, but if you want to, consider yourselves tagged. You can use Meeghan’s questions, or ask me to send you some. ๐Ÿ™‚ Do you relate to this struggle, or do you not worry about tagging people?

Like I said above, I’d love to see your answers to Meeghan’s questions in the comments! Would your answers match any of mine?

  1. These are really great questions and also awesome answers ๐Ÿ™‚ The Bride Test was such a good book and I honestly can’t wait until my favorite boi gets his own story next year! He absolutely deserves a HEA ๐Ÿ˜ Controlling air would be so fun, but I think controlling water would be so wicked too!

  2. I canโ€™t believe I still havenโ€™t seen Crazy Rich Asians. Need to do that! Laughing at your comments about Mal. I never completed the trilogy (I quit after the first book) but he was certainly less than impressive. Yes to The Bromance Book Club! I am so excited for that one!

    1. Do it, Tanya!! I think you’ll love CRA, hope you’ll write about it on your blog, because I’m curious of what you’ll think! That he is – one of the most boring characters… The Bromance Book Club better be good, because I’m so hyped for it, and it sounds unique as hell.

  3. Ugh, yes, Mal is SUCH an annoying and selfish fuck boy. I haven’t finished the series yet (one more book to go), but I am REALLY hoping Alina doesn’t end up with him. Also, cake is the BEST way to treat yourself. I bake a lot and am making my brother’s birthday cake today ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Oh wow, this is an excellent post and I am very tempted to do it since I am in a little blogging/reading rut currently. And Yes! I love that you feel the same way about Mal as I do, he seriously ruined the Grisha books for me by making me want to punch him in the face… a lot… whenever he was on the page. And shopping is one of my favourite ways to unwind too, that and watching too many youtube videos.

    You’re definitely not alone in hating tagging folks, it’s just so stressful and what if they don’t want to and ignore you completely? Any time I do a tag post I skip the part where you tag others… I just can’t do it.

    1. Thank you!! I hope you do it, if you want to I can make up questions for you, or you can use Meeghan’s ๐Ÿ™‚ Yeah, Mal was such an annoying character, one of the worst main characters I’ve read in recent years. Yes to shopping, and youtube as well!

      I’m honestly glad I’m not the only one! It’s so stressful to tag people, I only did it a few times in the years since I’ve started blogging.

    1. Same, same – I want more for sure. I could read Helen Hoang books for days, so the fact that she’s only published two is HEARTBREAKING, I tell you. Ooh, hope you’ll love the CRA movie – it’s different from the book, but in a good way, imo. True about cake. Thank you!

  7. I am also looking forward to Ninth House! Cake and shopping is always a good way to unwind. And I agree, Mal would be such a bore to meet in real life >.> I think Crazy Rich Asians was a good adaption because I hated the book but the movie was surprisingly decent!
