Isha’s Questions

What are your thoughts so far on blogging?

I love blogging, as it’s so fun! It’s a great way to destress, and pour your opinions and feelings out onto ‘paper.’ I love writing, and learning about other people’s opinions as well. So you could say that my thoughts on blogging so far is that it’s very enjoyable!

List me 3 of your favorite fantasy books.

Um heh…I haven’t read a fantasy book since I was 10. If you have any recommendations that aren’t too magical, then please recommend them. I’ve been meaning to read Six of Crows. I cannot wait to get into it!

One bookish hobby that you want to cultivate for real.

That’s a great question! I want to read more in the morning! It’s such a relaxing way to start the morning.

What is your favorite go-to TV show/series?

I enjoy watching Studio Ghibli films, along with other animated shows. They’re really nostalgic, and remind me of my childhood. My faovrite movie nowdays is ‘Whisper of the Heart.’

There must be at least one book that shattered your world. Which book would this be?

That would definitely be ‘History Is All You Left Me’ by Adam Silvera. It’s such a beautifully done book. It was so sad, yet so happy? It made me question the meaning of life. πŸ˜†

One self-care tip that you follow every day.

One self care tip I follow everyday is exercising! Sometimes I fail, but whenever I do workout, it feels very rewarding!

Three Things About Me!

  1. I love bullet journaling and have been doing so since I was a kid.
  2. For the longest time I used to only read non-fiction books and manga.
  3. The coldest weather I’ve ever been in was below -25 degrees Celsius.

Musing Of Souls’ Questions

What is that one book that you can give all other books for? (I got you there!)

Ahhh you sure did. Probably The Wishtree by Katherine Applegate. It’s a childhood favorite of mine. I finished it in 2 days. Younger Saniya was very proud. It’s a wonderfully written middle grade story you need to check out!

A Talking Tree, 200 Years Old and Fed Up With Intolerance - The New York  Times

2. What is you one of your most anticipated reads this year/month?

This year I am especially looking forward to reading Ace Of Spades! I’m sure you’ve all heard of it by now. πŸ˜† This month I cannot wait to pick up He Must Like You. It’s been on my TBR since it came out way back in July of 2020.

If you have to choose from two or more of your favorite authors to go on a coffee meet and greet? Will you choose one? Name two or more of your fav author and then choose one! (*wiggles eyebrows*)

Okok so I don’t have favorite authors per say, but I do have some favorite books! I admire Jules Verne’s work. He cultivated the adventure genre way back in the mid 1800s. My most favorite work of his is Journey To The Center Of The Earth! I’ve been getting into Adam Silvera’s and SK Ali’s books as well. Their writing is very thought provoking and poignant. However, I guess I’d have to say Jules Verne as I’d love to know what it’s like being an author living in the 1800s.

Who inspires you to write/read books?

That’s a great question! I’ve always been into writing, so no one really inspires me to write πŸ˜…. However, other book bloggers have actually inspired me to read. You are all the reason I got back into reading! πŸ₯°

Name five of your most recently viewed booktubers/bookbloggers!

    1. I have no idea…okay maybe I do know why, I just don’t really like fantasy? I’ve never been interested. I guess it’s because I’ve always preferred realistic and simple plots. (Plots that are more character driven) So yeah! Thank you reading!

        Sorry to butt into this conversation but SAME. I haven’t read a full-on fantasy book in a couple years! Yet fantasy is soooo popular in the YA world. I finally found someone who isn’t a huge fan of it πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  4. I’d definitely recommend six of crows as a ‘starter’ to fantasy as there are a lot of other aspects to love in it, the characters are really engaging!!
    I definitely want to check out more Studio Ghibli films in the future, as I’ve only watched one so far. Animated films are so good!!
    That’s so cool that you love bullet journal, I think they always look amazing 😍
    THANK YOU so much for nominating me for this award and all your kind words. It was SO great to read your answers and congrats on the awards ❀️❀️

  17. Congrats on achieving these awards!! I can’t wait to read Ace of Spades as well, it sounds incredible and I’ve heard so many positive things. Hopefully it lives up to the hype – but there’s still so long until release!
    History Is All You Left Me is also a book I’d be interested to read. I have to admit Adam Silvera’s books haven’t really been on my actual tbr and they tend to be ones I say I want to read but never plan on getting round to. I think just because I’ve heard that they’re so emotional and sad so I just never feel in the mood to have my heart torn out haha. Maybe one day though because I have heard nothing but positive things. I did read his book with Becky Abertalli ‘What If It’s Us’ though and I enjoyed it (up until the ending which I hated).
    Also I’m going to have to join the other comments in mentioning Six of Crows – please do read it! I put off reading it for so long due to all the hype but I’m glad I got to it because it was incredible!!

    Liked by 1 person

    1. Thank you so much! I know, I cannot wait to read Ace Of Spades. History Is All You Left Me is totally worth the read! I really disliked What If It’s Us. That ending though! Whyyyy. I’ll still read the second one though hahah. Ahh okok I will read Six Of Crows. It’s been on my TBR for around 2 weeks, and everyone has been raving about it. So maybe I will pick it up! Thank you for stopping by! Until next time Emme! πŸ’ž

      1. I didn’t know there was a second one?! I might read it but yeah it wasn’t my fave. I loved part 1 of What If It’s Us but I think it should have ended there haha.
