Let’s get it started then!

  1. If you could meet any author who would you meet?

My initial reaction is to say J. K. Rowling! Her books have a very special place in my heart and they have helped me face some really tough periods in my life. I will be eternally grateful to her, that I am certain of!

2. What is the last book you regretted buying?

I’m sorry to say that that was Zenith, by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings. This book just wasn’t for me. 😬

3. If you had the chance to write a book with any author who would you pick?

Holy moly! That is a good one! I think I’d chose to write a book with my friends Christine Bottas and Nikki Allegretti, because we have similar writing and reading tastes, but we also bring different stuff on the table, expressing our very personal likes and dislikes, as well!

4. What book made a really big impact on you?

Aside from my all time favourites, Wuthering Heights and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the book that truly had an impact on me was the Silmarillion, by J. R. R. Tolkien, who’s one of both Apo’s and my favourite authors. It’s a very complex and unique book, and I hope that I’ll manage to write something equally complex one day!

5. Where is your favorite place to read?

That would probably be my bed at the time being. My schedule had been pretty busy and hectic over the last few months, and so I only had spare time to read before going to bed. Still, it still is the most comfortable place to read, that is for certain!

6. If you could turn any book into a movie, what book would you pick?

Since the ACOTAR series and the Throne of Glass series are already going to be turned into a movie and a TV series, I think I’d pick Wicked Like A Wildfire, by Lana Popović, as this was one of the books that truly captivated me and taught me that sometimes those family bonds can be really toxic, without even realising it!

7. Which bookish character do you look up to and why?

Again, I’m gonna go with my gut instincts and I’m gonna pick Hermione Granger, because she made reading cool again (well, reading was always cool, but you know what I mean)! She’s smart and spontaneous and brave and loyal… She was, and still is till today, my fictional role model and the person to whom I’d turn for advice when things had gone pretty shitty!

8. If you could live the life as any character who would you pick and why?

I’d probably pick the life of the female lead of my current, contemporary WIP, because she has already achieved what I hope I’ll manage to do, too, one day!

9. Would you ever get a bookish tattoo or do you already have one? What would you get?

I’m actually planning on getting the Fearless Rune this upcoming autumn, probably towards my birthday, as a reminder that “courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the assessment that something else is more important than fear.”

10. You’re only allowed to read one more book and that’s it, what book do you pick?

Definitely Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone! It’s the book that turned me into the bookwork I am, and for that I am certain I will never get bored or tired of it!

11. (question missing)
