What is the worst movie you’ve ever watched?

I don’t think I have a particular movie that I thought was really bad. I don’t watch a lot of movies in general, so when I do, I make sure that I know I’m going to like it.

What’s your favorite food?

I’m biased, but I love Asian food and desserts. Maybe it’s because it’s what I grew up with, but there something about Asian cuisine that warms my heart (and belly).

Do you like the horror genre (in books, shows, movies)?

Nope! I’m a huge scaredy cat, so I can’t really handle scary things. However, I really enjoyed watching playthroughs of Resident Evil Village (I think it’s a horror game?).

Do you watch booktube? Why or why not?

I used to a few years ago, but I don’t anymore. I prefer reading book blog posts over watching videos, because I’m super impatient and I can scroll through a post faster. However, there are a few ideas that I think work better in a video format than a post (i.e. book hauls/unhauls).

Favorite action movie?

Does Marvel movies count as action movies? If so, my favorite one is Thor: Ragnarok. I watched that movie probably 10+ times before it was taken off of Netflix.

Name a book with a trope you love.

I don’t think I have a favorite trope. However, a lot of books I’ve read has one where the romantic partner (usually a male) is super powerful and overprotective of the protagonist (in a I-would-die-for-this-person kind of way), but the protagonist (usually a female) is just as scary, if not more powerful than the partner.

Who’s the most cinnamon roll character you’ve met in books?

Snug: A Collection of Comics about Dating Your Best Friend: Chetwynd, Catana:  9789123971893: Amazon.com: Books

I’m not sure they count as “characters,” but Catana Chetwynd is an artist who makes cute comics about her relationship with her partner. The whole thing is so wholesome and cute and is guaranteed to make you smile. Whenever I’m in a bad mood, I’d pick up one of her books, and I’m always feeling better by the end of it.

Do you play any musical instruments?

I used to play the piano and cello, but I stopped a while back. I’ve always wanted to revisit both of them, but I’ll probably have to wait a few years before I feel ready to pick up an instrument again.

Fairies or elves?

Hmm… between the two, I’d choose elves. I think fairies are too trickster-ish for me. I’m not cut-throat enough to survive around them (or those similar like the fae). Elves, on the other hand, I think I could survive around. I couldn’t fight them (I have as much hand-eye coordination as a brick), but I think we could come to an mutual agreement or something.

Do you prefer historical fiction or science fiction?

Science fiction, for sure! I love things that have some sort of fantasy/magic/futuristic element to them. I read to escape reality, and so I want the books I read to be as far from real-life as possible.

What’s a book with a twist that left you shocked for ages?

Mistborn Brandon Sanderson The Final Empirethe-well-of-ascension Mistborn Brandon SandersonThe Hero of Ages Brandon Sanderson Mistoff

The Mistborn series! The last book’s ending broke my mind. It was so genius, and made me realize just how much planning went into writing the series. My immediate thought after I finished the last book was that I need to reread the whole series to look for all the clues I missed. I still think about that ending to this day, and it’s been several years since I’ve finished it.

    thanks for tagging me! and i agree about booktube! i hardly watch it because i tend to just skip all the talking (i just want to know what books you chose for the topic, not a detailed description of the plot!!), and on blog posts, it’s so easy to scroll past those bits. 😅😅

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who doesn’t watch that much booktube. I feel a little bad, because I know people put a lot of effort into their videos, but I’m just impatient 😅

    Thank you SO much for nominating me! ❤️ I LOVE your answers. 😊 Personally I really like horror genre, and if there’s a bit of scares in my books or a dark atmosphere, I’ll like it even more, and OMG, I need to read The Mistborn trilogy, I’ve read Skyward by Brandon Sanderson and loved it completely, so I need to explore his fantasy books, I can’t wait! 😍😍😍

      I’m the complete opposite. I try to avoid the horror genre when I can (or else I won’t be able to sleep at night). XD

      OMG you need to read the Mistborn trilogy! It’s such a great series, and everyone who I’ve recommended it to loved it. I think you’ll like it as well!

    Thor: Ragnarok is such an amazing movie!! I watched it for the first time a few months ago (since I’m very behind on Marvel movies) and I loved it. I can’t wait to watch it again! 😀
