Answering Meeghan’s Questions


What is your favourite book you’ve read so far this year, and why?

This is an almost impossible choice between Murakami’s After Dark and Rupi Kaur’s The Sun and Her Flowers, but I think I’m going to go for After Dark simply because… it feels like a better choice than the other way around? Haha this is definitely an intuitive decision. I loved the writing style of After Dark, especially the bits where it addressed the reader and almost made you feel like a camera looking into a room. The story was one where you don’t really fully understand the point until you’ve finished reading and thought about it, but you still find yourself enjoying it whilst reading it, even if you don’t fully understand it yet.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE BOOK TO MOVIE ADAPTATION?

Ummmmm…. this is actually really hard, especially as I don’t really like movies all that much. Maybe Harry Potter for the nostalgia factor? Still waiting for my letter…

wHICH FICTIONAL CHARACTER DO YOU THINK WOULD BE THE MOST BORING TO MEET IN REAL LIFE?

Hmm… maybe Chaol from Throne of Glass? Chaol is great, but not exactly the most talkative, especially when you first meet him…

WHAT IS ONE THING YOU DO TO UNWIND?

OKAY, so for a second I’m going to be a small child, but when I’m at home and I’m getting stressed, I like to go and sit on the floor by mum and rest my head on her thigh. It was my safe place when I was like two and nothing has changed since. Otherwise, I really like going somewhere where lots of people are talking and just sitting in silence. Maybe I like eavesdropping (and yes I do), but it’s also just calming to have the world going on around you with no expectations for you to join in with it.

IF YOU COULD PICK ANY AUTHOR TO WRITE FANFICTION FOR HARRY POTTER, WHO WOULD YOU PICK?

Maybe Enid Blyton? I would like my HP fanfiction to be suitable to my innocent memories of it, and Enid Blyton had a knack for capturing the innocence and excitement of childhood wonder and adventure. She died before Harry Potter was even a thing, but you know. One can dream.

WHAT’S THE BEST BOOK TITLE YOU’VE EVER HEARD OF?

I don’t really know, but And the Ocean Was Our Sky (Patrick Ness) and The Weight of Feathers (Anne-Marie McLemore) are pretty good titles.

WHO IS YOUR OTP?

Only one? That is too cruel. But Aelin x Rowan will forever have a special place in my heart, so let’s go with that one.

IF YOU COULD CONTROL ONE ELEMENT, WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE?

Water! I honestly don’t have a proper reason for this…

WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE FICTIONAL ANIMAL?

Mushu from Mulan! Mulan is my favourite Disney movie, which helps, but Mushu is just hilarious. How can you not love him?

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE WAY TO TREAT YOURSELF?

Cuddling up in a huge pile of blankets, with either tea or chocolate or both! Or getting lots of cuddles and hugs from my friends 🙂 (I have a hugging addiction, I swear.)

IF YOU WERE ARRESTED WITH NO EXPLANATION, WHAT WOULD YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY ASSUME YOU HAD DONE?

Okay so I had really no idea how to answer this question, so I asked some friends, who suggested anything from stealing books to tax evasion. I’ve picked two favourites though…. #1: I’m really a Russian spy (I don’t speak any Russian, but I could learn?!) and #2: I didn’t do anything, but I get arrested for resisting arrest as I try to demand an explanation (this sounds pretty accurate, tbh).


TAGGING PEOPLE!


MY QUESTIONS:

  1. You have been arrested. What is the crime you are most worried about being falsely accused of?
  2. What is your favourite type of chocolate? (Can you tell that it’s Easter…)
  3. Highlighting or underlining?
  4. What is your favourite fantasy creature?
  5. What is your biggest pet peeve?
  6. Do you prefer sparkling water or still water?
  7. Are you the type of person to make decisions with your head or your heart?
  8. What do you do when you are stuck on something and need an epiphany?
  9. What is your happy place?
  10. Do you have any strange or unexplainable fears, and if so what?
  11. Where would you least like to go on holiday and why? (Real life, or fictional).

The final question was my favourite, so I’m going to turn it over to you guys to answer: if you were arrested with no explanation, what would your friends and family assume you had done?

Happy reading and enjoy the sun (if it’s sunny where you live),

  1. I definitely stabbed someone. I should clarify – I’m not a violent person, and I absolutely hate conflict… but I also have very low patience levels when it comes to strangers and I also seem to have a “ask me anything” stamp on my forehead because I get stopped by random people all the time, who then want to argue with me about whatever it is they’ve asked me (maybe I’m not confident in telling them the answers) and so one day I’m either going to roll my eyes so hard I cause myself to have a brain aneurysm, or I stab someone with whatever is close by (I think I have a nail file in my handbag?).
    Anyway, great post!! I loved your answers!!

    1. Thank you, I’m quite proud of it myself. Also, just a head up, when I click on ur name it directs to be a no-longer existing domain name… idk if you deleted your blog, but if you switched to a new one or something you should change ur primary site in ur account settings so people can find you (I just figured out how to do this and my mind was blown).

  2. Probably falsely testifying for my friends because they did something stupid (and hilarious -like destroying some trash cans around the city) and I would need to protect them because I’m the pure cinnamon friend and everyone believes me Hahah

    1. Aww you sound like such a sweetheart! I’m the type of person to tell the truth and tell them they deserve the punishment for being idiots hehe. But then I would buy them lots of chocolate to make up for it…. hehe.
