QUESTIONS and my ANSWERS:
Which author/book/series you wish you had never read?
Thank you for going easy on me and starting with one about which I do not need to think hard.
“The Poppy War” and “The Dragon Republic”
Both had potential since they had bits and pieces of a new mythology, but the main character was terrible, the pacing of the plot was sluggish, and the gods were left mostly unexplored.
Which book/series did you find so good, that you didn’t want to read it all at once, and you read it in doses just to make the pleasure last longer?
I do not think that it is actually possible for me. I either want to read more, so I do, or I struggle and read in small doses.
Which book/series/author do you tirelessly push to others, telling them about it or even giving away spare copies bought for that reason?
When morals meet politics, evil can take root. A great cautionary tale reminding us about the value of our elders, children, and God.
Which series/author you follow no matter what happens and how long you have to wait?
I have to admit that I am not loyal to any single author. The books I choose to read are selected based on the plot and not the author. Since I am not a fan of series, there really aren’t too many occasions on which you might find me waiting for the next book. I did, however, read the latest of the “Harry Potter” -related books (“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child”), because… it’s Harry Potter. (Published almost 20 years after the first book)
Is there an author/book/series you’ve read that improved with time the most, starting out unpromising, but ultimately proving rewarding?
Fortunately, or not, I know what I do not like. If the book begins with me not enjoying it, the chances of this sentiment changing are rather slim. I’ve been proven right a few times. Never proven wrong (or I just don’t remember).
Which fictitious character would you consider your role-model in the hassle of everyday life?
Role-models have never been my thing. I prefer to by MYSELF.
Which book/series/author do you find most under-rated?
Yes, it is the ultimate love story, but it is also so much more. It has witches and human sacrifice and gore. Everything is so well balanced.
