Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter … which is your favourite and why?
Fall, absolutely! There is just so much I love about it; the chilly sweater weather, the all-pumpkin-everything, the falling leaves, the spooky atmosphere when October sets in. Also, weirdly, I also associate wool hats with autumn for some reason. Something about fall just makes me feel cozy and cheerful.
What’s a blog post that you don’t do enough and want to work on writing more of?
Let Them Read Cake is a series that I had sort of started last year where I would pair something I’d baked with a favourite book. The first post can be found here. One of my New Years resolutions was to pick up this series again but so far, I haven’t gotten around to it. Maybe with this whole quarantine, I finally will!
You are now a central character of story. What novel would you want to be apart of and what role would you play?
Despite all the violence and uncertainty, I would still love to be apart of the world of the Green Bone Saga! I’d like to be a lantern (wo)man, supporting either the No Peak or Mountain clan (I’m not particularly loyal to either) in business meetings. But if I’m a central character, I’m most likely a Green Bone, though I’d be healer rather than a fighter.
What reading challenges have you done in the past? What’s your favourite one that you’ve participated in so far?
I’ve…never actually done a reading challenge before *le gasp*. I mean, if you don’t count the Goodreads reading challenge. And honestly, I don’t know if I can see myself doing one; I find them a little restrictive although I’m sure there are much more loosey-goosey ones. Maybe next year I’ll do some proper digging and find ones that won’t stress me out!
Who’s your favourite side character in a novel?
THERE ARE WAY TOO MANY. I have a (bad?) habit of liking side characters often more so than I like the protagonist. I’ll just list the first ones that come to mind:
- Percy from A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue
- Silas from A Sorcery of Thorns
- The Cike from The Poppy Wars
- The guys from The Bromance Book Club
You just won THREE wishes! What are you going to wish for? And NO — you can’t wish for more wishes!
Damn, that is so stressful. If I wasn’t going the route of fixing some of the world’s problems (end wars, no poverty, destroy capitalism, etc.) and instead was purely selfish, my three wishes would be (1) wishing to always feels fulfilled no matter what job I’m doing; (2) wishing to be a much better public speaker; and (3) wishing to always find time to read each day.
Would you rather only have the ability to read eBooks or hard copies for the rest of your life?
This would have been an easier decision a few years ago, but now, if I really had to choose, I think I’d go with ebooks only because I would have many more books to read, like indie books that don’t get the paperback/hardback treatment.
How did you come up with your blog name?
I don’t actually remember how I came up with it! I just really love sweaters and really like watching rainstorms from inside my house, so I believe there is nothing cozier than being curled up in a big, puffy sweater with a book while rain patters the window.
Name your favourite: food, colour, song, book, movie and TV show … GO!
Cooked eggplant, purple, right now: any song from Six the Musical, right now: Tess of the Road by Rachel Hartman, right now: Grave of the Fireflies, right now: Brooklyn Nine Nine.
Describe your perfect reading nook.
An alcove with a thick cushion, blankets, and a place to put a cup and a scented candle, against a long bay window overlooking flat plains so I can look out for miles. Also with a small cupboard to place the book(s) I’m currently reading, and a lamp for when it gets too dark to read by sunlight. I probably wouldn’t leave that spot for hours.
