Mani asked me….

1. Do you lend out your books?

Rarely. If I lend you a book, you have to be someone I know well and someone who I know takes care of things. 

2. Do you write in your books?

I used to write my name in my books and date when I got them. I don’t do that anymore because as my mother says, “Everyone knows they’re yours, Clarissa.” 

3. What is the one book you will always recommend to everyone?

I always recommend Little Women, but if we’re going with more contemporary reads, Harry Potter, lol. 

4. Can you read on the bus/in the car?

I can! And I like to read with my headphones on and some sort of music playing. Lately, it’s been Panic! At The Disco. 

5. What makes you love a book?

When it makes me forget where I am. If it can bring me into that world and make me forget everything else, I’m in love.

6. How often do you agree with the critics about a book?

I don’t read a lot of reviews prior to a release, ironically. It’s not a slight to them, I just like to form my own opinions. After I read whatever it is, then I look at reviews and I find that it’s hit or miss. 

7. How do you feel about giving bad/negative reviews?

Some might say I enjoy doing so because I seem to take a bit of glee in being so brutally honest, lol. I don’t enjoy it–especially if I was excited for the book. No, I take that back. My sarcasm comes out especially well when I am being brutal.

8. If you could read in a foreign language, which language would you choose?

French. I just love the language.

9. What’s the longest you’ve gone without reading?

Um…lol.

10. Favourite film adaptation of a book?

I love the Harry Potter movies. (Except for the third film, I just didn’t enjoy that.) Gone With The Wind, Little Women (with Winona Ryder), I love Forrest Gump too, the book was terrible, but the movie was so good. (Then again, I love Tom Hanks.)

11. Which book character strongly resembles your personality

I always say it’s a tie between Scarlett O’Hara and Jo March. But I think it could be Lou from Me Before You too!
