Author you’ve read the most books from:
Definitely my favorite, K.J. Charles. The plan is to read all of her books. The ones I had finished so far:
- A Charm of Magpies series
- A Society of Gentlemen series
- Sins of the Cities series
- Spectred Isle
- The Secret Casebook of Simon Feximal
- Think of England
- Unfit to Print
- Wanted, An Author
- Wanted, A Gentleman
For the longest time, there weren’t any clear pictures of KJC on the interwebs. Found the pic above from her interview with a German website.
Best Sequel Ever:
I have yet to read the best sequel ever. Though I really liked The Dream Thieves more than The Raven Boys.
The Raven Cycle review here
Typically, I have several books going for when the mood strikes
Drink of Choice While Reading:
I don’t drink while reading. I chug down a huge mug of room temperature coffee like people chug beer then read.
E-reader or Physical Book?
Physical books but I also have an e-reader for when I go out.
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:
Hah! I have a hard time answering this as I rarely consider dating a fictional character because I am too busy shipping them with another character.
Shit! I really don’t know.
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
Never Understand by Bbong
I didn’t like the art at first. And I thought there were too many chapters since I rarely read anything with more than 10 chapters. I gave it a try because the premise was kind of interesting then it proceeded to blew me away.
Hidden Gem Book:
Futari Hyakkei: Kaze no Owari Haru no Hajimari by Mita Ori
My number 1 manga for 2018. I wish people would notice this more because this has some of the sweetest, most fluff-tastic manga moments. Like I said, relationship goals.
Important Moment in your Reading Life:
Way back in elementary, a classmate introduced me to Nancy Drew books which turned me into a bookworm. Also seeing the cover of the Japanese edition of Captive Prince which very effectively put my 3-year book slump to death and put me on the road to becoming a book blogger.
Just look at them!

Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:
I don’t read any religious, erotica, or sports-centric books. Also, I don’t go for hardcore yaoi stuff. Books with love triangles are big turn offs and cheating is a deal-breaker.
Longest Book You’ve Read:
For now, The October Horse: A Novel of Caesar and Cleopatra by Colleen McCullough at 1110 pages.
But it will be Special Forces by Alexander Voinov once I find the courage to embark on a 3000-page saga.

Major book hangover because of:
Where Death Meets the Devil by L.J. Hayward
because Jack and Ethan is OMG!!!
Death and The Devil review here
Number of Bookcases You Own:
One big bookcase that doubles as a TV stand and two small bookshelves on a wall.
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
Spectred Isle by K.J. Charles
Read the book twice then the audiobook because I loved Ruairi Carter’s narration
Captive Prince trilogy
Read the ebook, then the physical books and audiobook because I wasn’t too obsessed, no.
Preferred Place To Read:
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
I’m thinking I should memorize this so I could use it when the opportunity comes. This was one of my favorite book moments.
I could go on and on about His Quiet Agent by Ada Maria Soto but really, just read it and be charmed by Arthur and Martin’s sweet, soft romance.
Throwing away an out of print edition of Night Watch by Sergey Lukyanenko because it got wet and heavily damaged. For purely sentimental reasons, I should have kept it. Now there’s a gaping hole in my collection and it is forever haunting me.
Series You Started And Need To Finish(all books are out in series):
Specter (the first series) by Jordan L. Hawk
I’ve read the first 5 books of series 1 and I have Summoner of Storms on standby. I’m just prolonging the agony because I need to be in the right mood for that big finale.
The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater
Also holding out on the last book The Raven King because I don’t want the adventure to end
Shades of Magic by Victoria Schwab
I hesitate to read the second book because I like to imagine Kell and Rhy end up together and Lila as an aro ace and/or the whole series as entirely romance free.
Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:
Unapologetic Fangirl/Fanboy For:
Yes, these dorks. Review here
Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
I was giddy with excitement last December waiting for Why The Devil Stalks Death by L.J. Hayward. This could very well be the best sequel ever but as of now I am afraid to touch it because my expectations are so high.
Worst Bookish Habit:
I am a mood reader. I start on something, then quickly lose interest and not pick up the book again for a very long time. I also need to take better care of my eyes. I use the laptop for hours on end then even when my eyes are too tired I still try to read. So my vision keeps getting worse.
X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th bookJ
On my physical shelf: Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch
I love the Gentleman Bastards! What is Locke’s real name? Willing to wait till I’m a dried up skeleton for The Thief of Emberlain. Just make it good, Scott. No pressure.
On my e-reader: A Scanner Darkly by Phillip K. Dick
This I haven’t read yet. The 2006 animated movie looks interesting tho. There’s RDJ having a Kafka moment.
Your latest book purchase:
Rich People’s Problems by Kevin Kwan
Love this trilogy! I read the ebooks and my father liked Crazy Rich Asians so I bought the physical books to make it easier for him to read. I haven’t watched the movie. I probably will when they show it on HBO. I still haven’t gotten the hang of the Netflix and chill thing because slow ass internet is anything but chill.
ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
Leo Loves Aries by Anyta Sunday
This kept me up until 6 AM, good thing it was a Saturday. This is also another book I was glad I gave a chance. I thought it would a boring relationship-centric contemporary but holy heck, what a delicious memorable slow burn dance it was!
