Liebster Award

Hey there, fellow book noodles. How are you all? I’ve been failing #Februwitchy because I’m a slower reader than I thought. Also, health issues. Good stuff. But that’s okay because it’s still fun to be part of a readathon.

Lauren’s Questions

Which author(s) continue to surprise you with their work?

I’m not sure since I haven’t been reading long enough. Thanks, years of untreated ADHD!

What is a book that you know like the back of your hand?

None. ๐Ÿ™ I seldom reread books, and my mind has only so much room to remember things.

What bookish world captivated you to the point you wish you could live there?

It was Harry Potter. Now I’d just rather visit places, not live in them. I would be bound by no laws! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

What is something that always brighten day?

It’s a tie between Living Dead Dolls and, of course, books. I’m also a fanfic writer and the dolls (essentially the boys) have really inspired me.

What is go to drink at a coffee shop?

Pumpkin spice latte? I’m… not a big coffee drinker. *dodges angry book bloggers*

Do you buy books for looks alone?

No? Sounds a bit odd to me, but hey, whatever makes you happy.

Are you a mood reader or do you plan out a monthly TBR?

Planning? Never heard of her. ๐Ÿคช

What are your top 3 upcoming releases?

  1. Urban Magick by Diana Rajchel
  2. Intuitive Witchcraft by Astrea Taylor
  3. Psychic Witch by Mat Auryn

Are you up to date with the Shadowhunter world?

(I have nothing against Shadowhunters, I just thought this was a funny response. Laugh! LAUGH!)

What book do you own the most copies of?

Eh, I just stick with one copy of a book. I know, I’m boring.

What is your favorite bookish item to collect?

Nontoxic book-scented wax melts are nice. Mmm.

Random Facts About Me

  1. I’m half Sicilian, which I think is awesome because it’s a mix of cultures, including Arab (seriously, the Arabs contributed some great things).
  2. I have a dog that acts like a cat. Stroke her back and her butt rises like bread in the oven, fast-forward. She’ll also rub against you and paw at you when playing, and she can purr (no, really) and likes to sit on top of the couch.
  3. I was an aspiring author for over a disappointing decade and might write again because I never learn.
  4. I’m a lot less organized than I think I am, but I am trying my best, or at least I think I am.
  5. I’m just really kind of lazy? I feel as if I need a nap that lasts a few centuries.
  6. I sleep with a nightlight on because pitch-darkness makes me restless like a bright room does.
  7. Speaking of sleep, I do not experience fear in my nonsensical, sometimes nightmarish dreams. The last one I remember had me trapped in a place with serial killers, but I ended up driving them all to kill each other and themselves instead. It was awesome.
  8. I like black licorice.
  9. Only fictional characters can win my heart. Seriously. I have no capacity for attraction to real people.
  10. I witnessed three UFOs one night and I’m still salty about not having been abducted.
  11. I did a Google search to see if anyone else described a butt rising like bread in the oven. I am the first. I have claimed such a ridiculous simile. I am proud.
