My answers Darina’s 11 questions:
If you could pick anywhere in the world to be right now where would you pick and why?
Australia, Perth to be specific. It’s been over 3 years since I’ve seen my cousins. Also, the weather has started to warm up there.
Do you have any pet peeves?
I do, but the one that annoys me the most is when people eat with their mouth open and chew their food way to loudly.
Do you ever skip to read the last few pages of a book to find out how it ends?
Nope, I’ve been temped a few times but I don’t think I have ever done it.
If you had to keep only one physical book in your home which book would it be and why?
Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts it was one of the first big books I owned, and also it’s one of very few that both my bestie and I both agree on loving.
What is your opinion on audiobooks?
Absolutely love them. They have helped me get through a lot of books that are on my tbr, and they are great for listening to when travelling, especially as I get travel sick when I try reading in moving vehicle.
Do you have a favourite quote that you like to live by or follow?
“Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. – Mother Teresa”
What’s the first thing you like to do when you get back home from a busy day?
Get changed into my comfy pyjamas and have a nice hot drink in the winter or a cold one in the summer.
Imagine you wake up one day only to realise that you are famous. Would you love it or hate it?
Oh, I think it would all depend on what I was famous for lol. But I think I would love it at a bit but then probably hate it.
If the world from Fahrenheit 451 ever becomes a reality how would you react and what would you do?
I would freak out at first then build an underground secret bunker where I would hide myself and all the books I could get into the bunker. I’d make sure it was self-sustainable so I would nicer have to leave it lol.
Is there a book that made you fall in love with reading?
One of the books I remember owning was Little Red Riding Hood and The Mrs Jolly’s Joke Shop by Allan Ahlberg. I loved both of these books I remember choosing these every time I was told to pick a book to read.
If you met your five year old self right now what advice would you give him/her?
Have fun and look after all your books, and do what you want to do when your older.
