I’m back from yet another break. I hope 2018 will be the year where I can keep this blog updated for a couple of reasons: (1) I just want to get in the practice of writing in different ways and (2) I am studying abroad and I want to bring you on my journey!
I was nominated for this award by the wonderful Aditi17 (go check out their blog!) Here we go!
- Share the link of the blogger who has shown love to you by nominating you.
- Answer the questions.
- In the spirit of sharing love and solidarity with our blogging family, nominate 8-13 people for the same award.
- Ask them 3 questions.
Q1. What are your all-time favorite books (the ones you recommend to everyone)?
These are the Top 5 books I would recommend to anyone:
- The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe
- Graceling by Kristin Cashore
- Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi
- Native Son by Richard Wright
- Chinese Cinderella: The True Story of an Unwanted Daughter by Adeline Yen Mah
Q2. What things you generally keep in mind while reviewing a book?
I haven’t truly “reviewed” a book yet; it’s more me yelling about them. How I look at a book while reading it all depends on the genre for me. If one is supposed to be fantasy-based, I tend to look at the plot more. If a book is reality-based, like mysteries, I look at how the characters are written because to me, when the characters are written in a manner where they seem robotic or have unrealistic conversations, the book falls apart for me.
Q3. What would be the overall best book you read this year?
For 2017, I didn’t read any books that came out that year, but of the books I did read, I have to say The Devil in Disguise by Cynthia Eden was a wild ride. Another I read that I think was a pretty good read wasMachete Season: The Killers in Rwanda Speak by Jean Hatzfeld.
Q1: What book do you want to read that has been on your TBR List forever?
Q2: What genre do you usually stray away from and why?
Q3: If you could have dinner with three authors, who would they be?
Go ham y’all!
