The lovely Ash @ wildheartreads has tagged me to this and I’m so honored! Also look at me, I’m actually doing a tag and not postponing it until it’s 347832 months later and at that point it doesn’t even make sense to post it anymore and- well my point is that I’m doing this now so y’all can be proud of me (and sorry to everyone who has tagged me and never heard back from me lmao – Laura this one goes to you).
I actually did this same tag a looooooong time ago I believe but the questions are different so it’s all good!

If your favourite book was adapted would you prefer it as a film or TV series?
My favorite book series is Captive Prince and a film (or even three) wouldn’t do it justice, so I’d have to go with TV series! It would make much more sense and if done right it would be the best way to convey the same exact slow burn vibe that the books have.
What would your dream reading nook look like?
You know those couches shaped like an L? I love the corner part because I can sit however I want and stretch my legs all the way and I feel “safe” I guess.
Paperbacks or Hardcovers?
Ebooks actually gsdhlgsgh but I guess hardcovers because they look nicer and you don’t have to hold the book open the whole time, you can just put them on a surface and keep reading.
Do you listen to music when you read or do you need silence?
I very rarely listen to music when I read, mostly I just don’t think about it and start reading in silence. If someone else is listening to music I can read but it can’t be something with a lot of lyrics if that makes sense, and it also can’t be something that I already know because if I know the lyrics and music I just start humming along and get distracted from my book.
Favourite meme that describes you reading?
You get the idea
It used to be fantasy but now I see that I can’t read only fantasy anymore, I also need to read some contemporary stuff sometimes, so I have no idea. But I’ll just go with YA in general I guess.
Do you fancast characters or do you prefer to let your imagination do the work?
Neither, I don’t really see faces in my head when I read so I can’t fancast.
Favourite trope/least favourite?
Favorite romance trope: enemies to lovers
Least favorite generic trope: dead queer people for the sake of furthering straight people’s narrative
What fictional world would you love to visit?
Earlier I would have said the Harry Potter one but since it’s apparently impossible to be a queer person there I’d rather go visit the Always Human world so I could try different mods for different hairstyles and looks and also knowledge mods would be super cool.
What book surprised you the most (good or bad)?
I had absolutely no idea what I was getting into when I started The Darkest Part of the Forest and I guess I thought it would all take place in a faerie world but it actually mostly takes place in the real world but then again nothing about it feels like our world because it’s all so magical and the writing is perfect to give you this sort of magical vibe. The romances also surprised me a lot in a very positive way.
What was your last 5 star read?
That would be At the Edge of the Universe (my review)! I loved it and it made me fall in love with SDH, now I really need to check out all his books.
