Here are my answers to Chloe's questions:
1. Do you like to
write, and if so, would you ever consider writing a novel?
I love writing!
Experiencing an author's world is amazing but creating and
experiencing your own is even better. I have written plenty of short
stories and fan fiction and I'm currently planning my first novel.
Although publishing a novel is the dream I'm also seriously
considering getting into the film industry and maybe writing a screen
2. Who is your
favourite author and why?
I always would say
it was JK Rowling but besides Harry Potter I haven't actually read any of her
other books (I had a go at The Casual Vacancy but it wasn't my sort
of book) so recently I've been reconsidering. Although I have only
read the one book, so far, I think it could be George RR Martin. Mr
Martin's writing is amazing and every so often I just stop and think
about how beautiful the words I just read were. His complex world is
amazing and it's easy to forget that just one man and his pet turtles
invited this incredible world.
3. Any weird reading
I like to have my
feet covered whilst I read, even if it's a really hot day I'll put a
pillow or a cat over my feet (although the cat usually sits there
voluntarily). I can't really explain why.
4. Why did you start
your blog? What inspired you?
I actually had a
blog before this one, it was originally supposed to be a beauty blog
but I didn't wear make-up so it didn't work out to well. In the end
it mostly consisted of school trips and days out I'd been on recently
which got pretty boring after a while. I then discovered that book
review blogs existed and that was probably more my forte.
5. What can you be
found doing on days when you just hang around the house?
This is most days. I
am a big TV binge watcher so I'll usually be watching an entire
series of Teen Wolf, Merlin or Game of Thrones (Doctor Who is a night
time show). If I'm in a really good mood I might do some fandom
crafts (currently working on a Percy Jackson clay bead necklace) and
in the evening I sometimes find my self in a baking mood.
6. Who is your
inspiration, or someone you look up to?
Since I was little I
have always admired my older brother and when I was very young I'd
try speak and act the way he did. I wouldn't say me and him were that
close but we never argue like most brothers and sisters, probably
because of the three year age gap.
7. What are some
things you hate? Why?
Porridge! I'm almost
sick at the slightest smell of porridge. I also hate romance books, I
like action books with romance in it but I just don't enjoy a book
purley focused on what is usually a very predictable relationship. If
you like romance I won't give you hate from it. I just love that
people read so it's pretty unimportant to me what you read.
8. What are some
personality traits of yours that you like? Why?
To be honest I'm
mostly very cynical and pretty sarcastic. I do, however, consider
myself to be quite loyal. Not just with friends but I'd hate to go to
a different Chinese take-away on a Friday. The people there know me,
they're very nice because of it and they're daughter waves at me when
I see her in Morrison’s.
9. If you had one
superpower what would it be and why?
Copy and paste
power! I should clarify the copy and paste power doesn't only work with
text and pictures, for example I'm at a friends house and I think the
design of her kitchen looks nice all I have to do is activate my copy
and paste power and I could have the very same kitchen at home.
10. What would you
do with a million dollars?
Firstly I'd convert
it into pounds so I could spend it in this country. I think I'd start
a business or maybe put it towards making my own TV show.
11. If your life was
a reality show, what would it be about?
The internet life.
It would be all about blogging, being a YouTuber and the “dark
side” of tumblr where hipster posts are very much frowned upon.
