Hello my lovely friends! I’m so excited to share with you that I have been tagged by Beth (check out her delightful blog at Reading Every Night) for the Book Fangirling Blog Award. Thank you Beth for this wonderful nomination! Although I fangirl over certain books, it’s more common to find me in a sort of daze after a really good book. Once that period of time is over, however, you’ll find me talking nonstop about the amazing book I just read!

1. The three main characters from the last three books you read are your partners in the zombie apocalypse. Who are they and do you think you’d survive the outbreak?
The last three books I’ve read are Vicious by V.E Schwab (my review here), The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Phillipp Sendker (review here) and The End of Everything by Megan Abbott. Honestly, if Victor from Vicious were by my side, I wouldn’t have any qualms about a zombie apocalypse. But the remaining two characters leave something to be desired. Julia in The Art of Hearing Heartbeats is a bit weak, and is the average young adult that lives in New York. If Julia’s father, Tin Win, on the other hand were to join, I’d be more than happy to let him in my posse. Tin Win has the ability to hear the heartbeats of others, and is constantly very poised, calm and confident. Lizzie from The End of Everything is the typical teen who doesn’t do much within the book action-wise. I’d have to say, I’d probably be the first to perish in the zombie apocalypse.
2. If you could take one thing, be it a place, an event, a character, an object, out of any book and make it real what would you pick?
Narnia, this series was a childhood favorite, and to imagine another world I could escape to just in my wardrobe, would be amazing. Plus all the characters within that world seem magical and beautiful, and even till today, that place has such a strong hold on me!
3. The world is ending and you have just enough time to read one book, what would you choose and why?
This is definitely a hard one. I feel as if at that point, I’d frantically be finding my friends and families how much I love them, not reading a book… But I’d definitely want to reread Love You Forever by Robert Munsch. I know this is a children’s picture book, but it was read to me as a child, and I cherish the memories that follow.
4. What is one thing you wish there was more of in the world?
Forgiveness, so many of the world’s problems seems to hinge on grudges, bitterness and unresolved problems. I believe that it is possible for us to live with more love, happiness and joy when everyone is able to put down their differences, forgive and move on with life. Imagine how many world problems would be solved when disputes are resolved and everyone is able to make decisions without bitterness and resentment.
5. If you could have any superpower what would you choose, and what would be your origin story?
The superpower I would choose would be mind-manipulation. This way I can convince others to do things for me, although I do believe this to be the most dangerous superpower out there.Although I’m not sure what my origin story would be, I’d definitely want to not know about my power until one day when I realize something’s wrong with me. Almost like a coming of age story, and then I have to battle with the moral implications of using my power.
