THREE FACTS ABOUT ME

  1. I’m actually socially awkward, and could never hold a long conversation without adding ok and feel like I don’t belong.
  2. I have no friends that I see, since they all abandoned me and they all gave me depression. Everyone usually dislikes me which is probably why I turned to writing and blogging, to feel like I belonged.
  3. I love traveling. I love going to different places to see different things even though it’s like the same every year. I actually went to D.C this year which was super cool, even though it wasn’t long enough.

Sara’s Questions

What fictional character do you love reading about who would be terrible to deal with in real life?

Kaz from Six of Crows. He is an unpredictable man, even though he is crippled, but still. He’s dangerous and I seriously don’t want to be on his bad side.

What’s the best “hidden gem” book you’ve ever read?

The Lunar Chronicles. No one seriously knows about it, and I’m like the only person at school who is well aware of its existence.

What achievement are you proud of that other people might consider silly or weird?

None of my books are greatly ruined. There’s a few that needs major replacing, but nothing that bad.

What upcoming book release are you most excited for?

This is hard though. I can’t choose just one so I’m going have to do with multiple. Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor, Wildcard by Marie Lu, Archenimies by Marissa Meyer, Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas, and Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare

If you were arrested with no explanation, what would your family and/or friends assume you’d done?

Trying to sleep in a bookstore. I have nothing. I’m too pure apparently, and besides a bookstore is one about a mile away from my house.

I tag: Kyera, Dina, and Morrigan

  1. What’s your favorite read so far of 2018?
  2. If you had lots of money, what would you spend it on?

  1. I’m super socially awkward too. I’m at a park right now with my family but I’m actually on my phone responding to blog comments, so…

    And I love the Lunar Chronicles! Sorry there’s nobody there for you to talk about it with!

    You’re a good sport for answering all of the 100 truths! I expected it to be longer too, even though it obviously ends at #100.
