They are some of my favorite posts to read. They often give us an extra glimpse into the life of the blogger behind the post. So generally, I will participate when able.

Lara’s Questions

  1. How many books have you read thisย year?

    I believe I just broke 70, which was my Goodreads challenge, but keep in mind some of these were manga titles.

  2. What is your favourite genre of books?

    Fantasy and Horror. I love the idea of magic and epic battles with fantastic realms. Plus I really want a pet dragon.. don’t judge.

    I also enjoy scaring the piss out of myself for some damn reason.ย 

  3. Whatโ€™s your favourite past time apart from blogging?

    I am guessing reading does not count, so I am going to have to give thatย clichรฉ answer, family.ย Becauseย it is true. I have two children and the world’s greatestย nonhusband, so I cannot get enough of them. I am also an avid gamer when my health allows. Sometimes (like currently) the vertigo is too much with video games. I also have a deep love for animation.

  4. Who is your one true book love?

    If we are talking fictional crush.. I don’t have one. Haha, unless you can count Bilbo Baggins. I do have a think for short men ๐Ÿ˜‰ I love everything about Bilbo and The Hobbit is my all time favorite. So call me weird, but I guess I have a hobbitย fetish.


  5. What was the last movie you watched?

    Kubo and the Two Strings. It was actually very good. I think I enjoyed it more than the kids.

  6. What was the last book you bought?

    The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor. I buy anything and everything remotely related to Wonderland.

  7. How often do you blog?

    I Think I average 3 to 4 times weekly. Although I have been forced to slow down a bit recently. Blogging is an awesome outlet.

  8. Do people in your real world know that youโ€™re a blogger?

    The ones that care enough to pay attention do ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. Do you hate the words blog and blogger?

    Meh.. I review and I blog. It makes no difference to me. I am pretty easy. Is that a thing? Do people dislike being labeled “Bloggers”?

  10. Whatโ€™s your favourite curse word?

    F**K..sorry but I have a seriousย pottyย mouth. My kids have been properly trained to do as I tell them, not as I say because I curse like it is going out of style. It is stress relieving for me. I actually find it healthy and recommend it to all ๐Ÿ™‚


  11. Whatโ€™s your average reading time?

    2 to 3 days generally. Sometimes faster if I have a whole day of nothing to do and love a book ๐Ÿ™‚ Funny this is mentioned. We were just discussing something similar on my last post.

    *Sorry for the fontย irregularities, but WordPress has been giving me fits.. and it is a battle I amย tired of fighting today.. and every day..

  1. Do you mean to tell me that your favourite curse word is f#ck but you couldn’t even write it properly, oh man! ๐Ÿ˜ข

    Blogger is a bad term there’s a new better term, Anne will agree with me when she visits this post and that term is Awesome Bloggers Club! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘

    Oh and everyone wants a pet dragon, I’ve got one and it’s called Jill! ๐Ÿ˜‚

        1. Was ze fuck is up with this..this…decency thing you guys speak of?! I’d have my ass flagged 2 weeks into blogging if I abided by any decency rules :D. Leaving reviews on Amazon is a whole different story, though ;).
          Danielle, you automatically become a member of the Awesome Bloggers Club right after using its hashtag.

  2. I love cursing as well… If f*cks could wear out, then none would exist in my world, it’s a daily word for me and sometimes I even sing it in a little nonannoyed voice, creeps the husband out cos he can’t figure out if I’m pissed off or actually just enjoying the word so much! Hahaha…
    Man, I loved the Bilbo Baggins reveal…I love it when people have different and unique tastes…

  3. Fantasy and Horror eh? Have I got a rec for you! (why, yes indeed, that’s just what you needed, more recs!): After Life by Daniel Ionson. I read it a couple of months ago and oh boy: great horror fantasy! Aaah, Bilbo Baggins <3. We called one of our cats who had a massive pair of nuts (like, he couldn't sit properly-massive) Bilbo Baggins. Yeah baby.
    I am SO curious to see what you think of the Looking Glass Wars :). I loved the Middle-Grade spin-off! Regarding #9…I do hate it when people in real life refer to my 'blog'. I rather call it my website. Because it sounds more professional and less like an online diary or something. Like I've actually accomplished something*roars with laughter* ;).
    Potty mouth = being Zen. Anyone who says otherwise is still just too stressed to realise ;). Or from Alabama.

  4. Oh god, I know what you mean about the cursing! I have the exact same issue. It got particularly bad when I was in Japan because I got so used to people not knowing English. On the plane ride home, I swore rather loudly and my friend was mortified.

    Gonna answer these questions later! Been a while since I’ve done one of these posts ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for sharing your answers!
