A book you started but never finished…but want to finish. What stopped you from continuing to read it?
Revival by Stephan King. It is really slow and there is not much going on inside it. It didn’t pique my interest much, but as the first book I ever started reading from Stephan King I wanted to do my best to finish it.
What elements attract you to a book, which makes you need to read it?
One of the most interesting things I find about books are the premise. If the book is surrounded by a unique idea that captures my attention I will definitely read it. I also love retellings, I’m a huge sucker for a good retellings. Plus, most fantasy and contemporary novels surrounding mental illness pique my interest.
Which books do you prefer, e-copy or hard copy?
Usually I would say a physical copy, but thanks to netgalley I’ve been really into e-books lately so I really don’t mind either way.
What book are you currently reading or going to read next?
I am currently reading 3 different books, Mask of Shadows, Use the Force, and The Bone Season. I am more then halfway through with all of them so I look forward to reviewing them all very soon!
The book I’m looking to read next is The Suffering Tree I’m doing my best to increase my netgalley ratio which is at 50% right now so after Mask of Shadows and this book it will be up to 70%.
Is it fair to judge a book by its film?
No, you can’t judge a book by it’s film or a film by it’s book. They are both two different mediums that accomplish things very differently.
What book did you badly judge by its cover and ended up loving?
Is it weird that this hasn’t happened yet? I sometimes judge a book by its cover, but most of the time I let the words speak for themselves. Usually if I don’t like a books cover I look to the synopsis, but I never think that a bad cover equals a bad book.
Which book character have you felt the most kin with and able to relate with?
Recently that has been Hawthorne from The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett. The way she sees the world reminds me of a younger me. The stories she creates from her loneliness are also things I can relate to.
If you had to choose a genre to read for all your life (you won’t be able to read any other genre) which one would you choose?
Fantasy hands down! While I definitely read across most genres fantasy holds a special place in my heart and I couldn’t bare it if I couldn’t read the genre for the rest of my life. It is my comfort genre.
50ish WORD STORY:
There was a girl who saw the stars for what they really are. Gastric lights living and dying continuously before our eyes. She fell in love with all there parts. She understood the stars and was awed by them. She wished to live amoung them as particles of dust swarming around their firey bodies. 80 years past, as an old women she told her grandchildren her wish. Years after her death, her wish was granted, she soars now one with the stars. A part of the gorgeous lights that guide our way home.
Rattle the Stars
