YESSSSSS!!!!!


THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Approximately how many books do you usually read per week? Per month?

Back when I had a decent reading schedule, I read on average one book a week. That meant that I read four books a month, give or take one or two. Nowadays, because my schedule is so random, I range from reading zero to five books a month.

I really wish I could read A Gathering of Shadows right now, but to my teachers spring break apparently means spring break-off-school-so-we-have-to-make-up-for-the-time-lost-by-all-the-projects-tests-quizzes-and-homework. Yay.


THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Which characters (from which book) do you think deserve their own spin-off story? Why?

I’m just going to go and say it out loud.  Harry Potter. Well, I mean the Potter trio and their kids. Technically, we’re *kinda sorta* getting a spin-off series (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child), but that’s in play format. I think the children of the Harry Potter series should get their own book format spin-off series.

I’m not the only who wants this, right?

Until next time….

GAHHHHHHH IT’S SO BEAUTIFUL IT’S BURNING MY EYES.


 

THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: What was the last book you didn’t finish? Why?

The last book I didn’t finish was Plus One by Elizabeth Fama. I didn’t finish it because I was reading it around the time where I had a lot of books in my TBR pile, and this wasn’t one of them. I picked it up from the public library because I wanted to read a young adult romance novel, but I didn’t like it. At all. I couldn’t get past the first chapter. And because I had many other books that I could read, I just accepted that it would have to go in my DNF pile.
