Who is your all-time favourite book character? (and yes, i know it's torture, but you have to try to narrow it down to at least a few ;) )
WHY MUST YOU DO THIS TO ME??!?
Okay, after much thought and deliberation, I have decided upon Magnus Bane from the Shadowhunter universe, mostly because he's awesomeness embodied and is a grade-A badass but also because he's unapologetically himself, and is so accepting of other people and proud of who is that I can't help but love him.
what writing style aggravates you the most? (ex: books heavy on the description, flowery prose, etc.)
I like to think I'm pretty open-minded when it comes to different writing styles, but books that use cliché descriptions just kind of aggravate me because it becomes so repetitive. Like no thanks, just keep your 'surfer-blonde hair' and about a million other clichés offered to us on a daily basis and shove them-
favourite book cover?
I'm going to cheat here...I love the cover of all Infernal Devices books, and they're all totally mesmerising. I mean, look at Jem; that 'don't-touch-me' expression and the badass jade cane...I recommend this series to everybody who asks (and most of the time, people don't but hush)
thoughts on the trend of pages being made super thin in order to make long books look smaller?
what book do you hate that you can't understand why everyone else loves?
Cute-patoot contemporaries aren't really my thing, but this book in particular I just....couldn't get into. I didn't really care for the main character, and it's a shame because I'd heard good things and thought if I dipped my toe into the murky waters that are contemporaries I might....not regret it....
Oh, how naïve I once was.
Random factoids about me:
1. I am terrified of aeroplanes, bees and customer service.
2. I once got myself locked inside a bathroom and my uncle had to remove the door handle to free the imprisoned me.
3. I've recently dyed my hair again, this time a lighter shade of brown with blonde through it. I have to say, I'm quite a fan of it.
Okay, so I nominate....
Hail and farewell,
