Dini’s Questions:

What is your favorite read of 2021 so far?

The Empire of Gold (Daevabad Trilogy, #3)

This is my first 5 star read this year. It was amazing and a fantastic conclusion to a great series.

Which writing or blogging achievement are you most proud of?

Honestly, the fact that I am 4 followers away from 700! I can’t believe I even hit 100 when I first started. I always thought that if I hit 1,000 I would have made it. I’m not even sure what I would have made it to?! haha. It just sounds like such a crazy number. I don’t know if I will ever hit it… it has taken over a year to get 100 followers but when I hit 700 it will be exciting! Honestly, I’ve met so many awesome bloggers and it just keeps going. I love how we can all connect and talk about our love of books. So my followers are really important to me and I appreciate you all! ❤

Which of your most anticipated 2021 reads has the most beautiful cover?

Namesake (Fable, #2)

I love this question and I’m probably going to steal it, Dini! Although, my most anticipated read of the year does not have a cover! It’s actually Crescent City 2 and the cover isn’t released yet. So, I think I will go with my second most anticipated covers.

Describe your blog in three words.

Books. Reviews. Memes — LOL.. this is a hard one!

Which animal best describes your personality?

Can I just choose an elephant because they are my favorite? haha. I feel like they are gentle giants and very protective of their young. Also, they know how to have fun. I can have fun.. in certain situations. Have you seen them near a water hole? I love being in the water too. haha

Are you able to finish a book in one sitting?

I have been able to do it before I had a kid. I did it several times but now with Oliver… nope. lol I miss being able to read past a few hours at time. haha

What’s the next book you predict will be a 5 star read for you?

A ​Sky Beyond the Storm (An Ember in the Ashes, #4)

Next month!! This is happening!!!

  2. YAY! I loved reading your answers 😍 I’m so glad we ‘met’ each other via the book community! I’m enjoying our chats and buddy reads so much and I hope we can keep doing more 😃 Also, UGH, that Namesake cover is so gorgeous. I can’t wait to add both books to my shelves! I also still need to read House of Earth and Blood but I have no doubt that the cover will be GORG seeing as this first book was so stunning! Also, congrats on almost reaching 700! That’s amazing and you and your blog SO deserve it! ❤️
