Raven & Beez’s Questions
1. What is your favourite reading spot?
90% of the time, you’ll find me on my bed, reading till I tire out of my sitting/lying position. When that happens I hunt down some food and continue reading on one of the many couches in the living room.
2. How old were you when you realised that you loved books?
I was a tween when I discovered my love for reading. I remember taking frequent trips down to the library and once I turned 15, I took a break from reading till after my 16th birthday. I started avidly reading again in Autumn 2014. *sigh* good ol’ days.
3. Would you rather learn magic to save the world or some kind of fighting technique (if so, which one)?
This is easy. I’d learn how to karate chop my enemies into nothing…is that possible? (please say yes!)
4. Unicorn or Pegasus?
PE-GA-SUS! PE-GA-SUS! PE-GA-SUS!
5. Which book made you cry so much that you exhausted your feelings reserve?
Well, Me Before You certainly made me cry a lot…so did We Were Liars. But…I read those books last year. In terms of this year, Pivot Point and Maybe Someday certainly made my cry till I felt a headache come on. (It still hurts)
6. Favourite Marvel hero & Favourite Marvel villain?
Deadpool. I don’t care if he’s an anti hero…he’s awesome. But I will forever love Rogue from the X-Men…I’ve loved her since X-Men Evolution. In terms of villain…I guess Loki. He’s the best. Charming, calculating and… hot. That’s right, I love Loki. 😉
7. Do you read books in one sitting (or in two days) often? Do you like reading in one sitting or in one or two days? Normally, over how many days do you read a book? How many days would you like to read a book in, on a regular basis?
There’s many books that I’ve read in one sitting, such as Maybe Someday, We Were Liars & The Accident Season. Also, Cinder and Fairest. These are books that no matter how much I told myself to put it down and do SOMETHING else. Unfortunately, that’s impossible. I do enjoy taking my time and reading a book over the course of 3-4 days. Generally, I read 1 or 2 books a week, if I have school. In an ideal world, I’d read 3-4 books a week. ONLY, and I repeat ONLY for the sake of bringing down my TBR pile.
8. How do you dress at home?
I lounge around in my house, wearing this cotton, long dress thing (I’m Somali, and we refer to it as a Baati) In the winter seasons, I wear woolly jumpers and cardigans.
9. Do your parents read? Which genre? Do they read books you recommend? Do you tell your parents in detail about the books you read and discuss your feeling with them? Do your parents still read out loud to you?
My parents don’t read. If anything, they read bits of non-fiction text and the newspaper. That’s it. I read aloud to my 14yr old sister because she’s not a reader but states, and I quote “I like it when YOU read” I once read half of P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han to her. Suffice to say, I ended up with a sore, dry throat.
10. What non-fiction subject would you read a book on? Biology, self help, politics, biography, economics….?
I love History. I love Religion. And I actually enjoy Sociology & Psychology. I’d read a book on any of them.
