1. Why do you read?
Reading is my form of escapism from the real, cruel world. My mind relaxes and my body calms whenever I read a book which I truly love and enjoy. I find inspirations and moral values in characters and stories I read and I will appreciate and acknowledge all the characters who have given me the light to always look forward for life.
Some people find inspirations from travelling and seeing new places. Some people find inspirations from watching documentaries and meeting new people. Right now I think I cannot afford to travel overseas but when I have the luxury, I will surely go. For the time being, I find solace in reading. 🙂
2. What got you into reading?
I have to thank my teachers from kindergarten. They have instilled the love of reading to me when I was 5 years old. They taught me that you will find answers you want from a book. However, I could not understand what answers they meant.
Only now I understood. Answers of life can be found in a book. Stories taught you to be strong, selfless and kind to one another. I am grateful for my teachers and upbringing.
3. What do you like most about blogging?
I love writing reviews and sharing my thoughts on books. Whenever I finish writing a post and hit the Publish button, I feel so excited! I cannot wait to see my book blog grows!
Also, I love the people in the book community. They are all so supportive and caring. Right now, with all of your love, currently I have 102 subscribers to my blog within 43 days of blogging! Thanks for the support, lovely people! *celebrates*
4. What’s your favourite movie?
I love watching movies about Young Adults! It’s because it’s the only genre that I can relate to and free from any explicit content.
I like Me Before You. It is a beautiful and moving story about life and sacrifice.
I also like Marvel’s movie from Captain America, Hulk, The Avengers, Dr Strange. I really love watching humans with superpowers!
5. Do you play any sports? If not what do you do outside of reading?
I am not a really active person. However, I did play sports when I am at school and during my first year of university. I played softball because it is an interesting game to be played.
I also love playing computer games and watching movies!!
6. Do you prefer hardcovers, paperback, e-books, or audio books? Why?
I prefer paperbacks all the way! I do have some hardcovers, from the Harry Potter series which I bought them during the first printing when they first came out.
I don’t fancy e-books at all now because it hurts my eyes so bad. I used to read e-books but now I don’t. I don’t want to worsen my eyesight.
I listen to audio books occasionally, especially for Harry Potter.
7. Do you like to snack when you read? If so what’s your favourite snack of choice?
I don’t like to snack while reading because my hands will get sticky and it will leave stains on the pages. I drink tea or hot chocolate whenever I have the mood to drink.
8. Tea or coffee?
Tea! I have a weak stomach, so I cannot drink coffee too often. I don’t really buy Starbucks because they are hella expensive here in Malaysia.
9. What’s your favourite type of blog post to write?
My favourite is writing my Thursday Tags!! Tags are the only writings that I truly enjoy, because I don’t have to rack my brain to write reviews! Reviews can so hard sometimes. When you don’t have the mood to write reviews, you can never successfully write it.
10. Do you like non-fiction or fiction more?
I love fiction more because I don’t have any access to non-fiction books. My wallet only says fiction books *laughs*
I guess I don’t really feel tempted to read non-fiction mainly because I cannot find any book that can suit me this far.
11. What do you want for a career? (it’s okay not to know)
I want to be someone who does experiments, discovers new things and produces journals to the community. I want to work in a science field because I love it. I love what I am studying now so I have to work really hard to get what I want in the future.
