1. What genre(s) do you tend to read the least often, and why?
There are some genres that I’m just not a fan of, including horror, dystopian, and thrillers. I avoid horror and thrillers because I don’t handle gore and violence very well. I avoid dystopian stories because the world is a dumpster fire right now and I usually read to escape reality.
2. What is your favourite snack and/or beverage to read with?
Oddly enough, reading snacks and beverages are two of the Top 5 Tuesday themes for May. Earlier this week I wrote about my top 5 reading snacks and next week I’ll be talking about reading beverages. For this question though, my top reading snack is gummy candy and my top reading beverage is tea.
3. Were you always a reader or did you have a “book lover” origin story later in life?
I’ve always liked books and reading, but the A Series of Unfortunate Events series by Lemony Snicket got me hooked on reading when I was in Grade 6. Since then, I’ve had some periods where I didn’t read as much, like later on in high school and parts of university. I think that book blogging definitely added to my love of reading though because it’s helped me discover so many new books and authors.
4. Name a book you associate with a specific reading memory (i.e. I read this book on the top of a mountain, with my best friend, etc).
The first time I read All My Friends are Superheroes by Andrew Kaufman was on a flight from Edmonton to Vancouver. This was fitting because the main character has until his wife’s flight touches down in Vancouver to solve the problem he is facing.
5. What’s the most recent book you reviewed, and how did you like it?
The most recent book I reviewed was Twelfth by Janet Key and I loved it. This middle-grade mystery was a ton of fun and it was full of great characters. If you’re interested, here’s my review of Twelfth.
