The Original Questions

1. If you could meet anyone from throughout history, who and why?

They say ‘Don’t meet your heroes’ so probably not someone who it would be too disappointing to actually meet – think when Hazel meets the author of An Imperial Affliction and he turns out to be a knob in TFIOS. I would probably go for someone who could divulge information that isn’t common knowledge today – from the Dark Ages or the Biblical Age.

2. What is your favourite book and why?

Here’s a selection:

  • Anna and the French Kiss – Stephanie Perkins
  • 1984 – George Orwell
  • The Handmaid’s Tale – Margaret Atwood
  • The Great Gatsby – F Scott Fitzgerald
  • Obsidian – Jennifer L Armentrout
  • The Book Thief – Marcus Zusak
  • Memoirs of a Geisha – Arthur Golden
  • The Time Traveler’s Wife – Audrey Niffenegger

3. Who is your favourite fiction character from any medium and why?

I have a feeling I’ll really like Celaena Sardothien when I start on the sequels to Throne of Glass… Big fan of Georgia Nicholson from Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging and Evie from Am I Normal Yet? by Holly Bourne.


Olivia’s Questions

  1. If you could visit any place in time or space, where would you go?

Egypt, during the discovery of the tombs (think The Mummy). Alternatively early USA, perhaps the Gold Rush in California?

2. What was the last movie you watched? Was it good? Better or worse than expected?

I think the last movie I watched was Lady Chatterley’s Lover (the 2015 BBC adaptation). It was pretty good, a little more boring than expected and not quite true to the book, but enjoyable all the same.

3. Which book are you absolutely dying to read?

I’ve seen some brilliant reviews of Illuminae by Amie Kaufman (which is released this October).

    1. For some reason, I just got stuck in question 1, did you mean a book I didn’t finish or just didn’t generally like? (My brain might start working better after coffee!)

  1. I recognize a lot of your answers! 🙂 Anna and the French Kiss and The Book Thief are favorites too, (have you read the AATFK sequels? I’m debating whether or not to) and I’m excited to read Illuminae! It’s on my TBR, at least… So I will probably get to it in a couple decades haha.
