Do you prefer to read a series or standalone?

I don’t mind either as long as it’s good!

What is your favorite book quote of all time or if you don’t have a favorite book quote, then a quote from a movie, etc that is your favorite?

“[…]the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!”
― Jack Kerouac, On the Road

I’ve always loved this quote so much.

Tell us 3 random facts about you.

I’m pretty loud

I like animals and nature

I hate it when people have sharp unkempt toe nails…

Pride and Prejudice, On The Road, Harry Potter, The Handmaids Tale, Equus, The Kite Runner, The Book Thief, Schindler’s List, Accidental Death Of An Anarchist (I know it’s technically a play but still!), Othello, I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights and lots more!

None in particular!

The Questions Given To Me:

A trip around the world or a book deal.

Before making a telephone call, do you ever rehearse what you are going to say?

EVERY FREAKIN TIME

Invent your own word, what does it mean?

Hathe- someone you are happy to see alive but still loathe.

Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want as a dinner guest?

Star Wars (the original 3 movies)

What question can you ask to find out the most about a person?

If you could make a 20-second phone call to yourself at any point in your life at present or future, When would you call and what would you say?

I would call myself back when I was depressed and self harming and tell myself that it really does get better, just keep believing and doing your best.

What’s something that happened or something that someone said, changed how you view the world?

When I first read the works of Maya Angelou my life and views of the world really changed! I realised that even though life was tough I could still achieve everything I want- I just had to fight for it.

What book impacted you the most and why?

On The Road by Jack Kerouac- it put my life and writing into perspective.

 If life is a game like some people say what would some of your rules be?

Nothing good lasts but nothing bad lasts either, life is a roller-coaster of emotions, you will never truly figure out why you’re here, you will never truly understand yourself, memories are the best gift.
