Q: What made you start your bookstagram?

A: My friend told me about these Instagram pages that had photos of books when I first got Instagram last year and I started following a few. Then I realised there was a whole community of people on Instagram that loved books as much as I do. From there I decided to start my own bookstagram and here I am 😊

My response: I am so glad you joined the community Jem you are such a kind person and have great energy!

Q: Since starting what has come to be your favourite thing about bookstagram?

A: I love all the people I have met and the conversations I have had with them all about books and other things in life. I also love all of the many book recommendations I get from everyone.

My Response: The connection and conversations are one of my favourite things too! Some people I have never met are some of the most supportive in my life! ❤

Q: What book, series or author started your obsession with reading and all things bookish?

A: I think I would have to say Harry Potter, it is one of my earliest memories of reading and is one of my favourite series.

My response: Ah yes such a magical series so important to so many of our community!

Q: I love TV and movies do you have any recommendations?

A: Ooooh there are so many that I love, some of the TV shows I currently love are Supernatural, Lucifer, Brooklyn 99 and Arrow. As for movies there is also many of them haha I love a good action and adventure movie though like Die Hard and Indiana Jones.

My response: I live for supernatural and Lucifer!! Some of my most favourite characters are from these shows!!

Q: Who is your favourite character bookish or non-bookish?

A: I don’t like trying to pick one favourite thing as I have so many favourites haha my favourite from Harry Potter though is Luna Lovegood and from Throne of Glass my favourites are Aelin and Manon. I could talk forever about some of my favourite characters.

My response: I know I am evil it is so hard to pick just one, I adore Luna and Manon as well such awesome unique characters.

Q: What is your biggest bookish pet peeve? Why?

A: I think my biggest bookish pet peeve is when books aren’t the same height in a series. I like to have a series all the same height as it is satisfying to look at.

My response: This is actually the devils work I am sure of it! haha

Q: To finish off what is your most anticipated upcoming release?

A: I think my most anticipated upcoming release is Darkdawn by Jay Kristoff. I am super excited to see how the series ends.

My response: Well this goes to show how slack I have been with this little series on my blog! So sorry it took so long Jem! I hope you loved this one and it didn’t destroy you to much. I am still yet to get to it! Let's Chat!

Thank you all for stopping by and I hope you show Jem some love! Start a discussion in the comments below and tell me what your answers would be to some of these! Until next time happy watching and reading!

THE MID-AUTUMN FESTIVAL TAG!

Hello lovely people! Today I bring you a cute, quick tag. I was tagged by the absolutely incredible Orangutan Librarian. If you are not following this blog already what are you even doing with your life?!

I could not find the original creator of the tag! 😦 So, if you know please let me know so I can credit them! All covers are either from Goodreads or photos taken by me.

So even though we are finishing up spring and heading into summer here in Australia, here are my answers to the mid-Autumn festival tag.

REUNION OF FAMILY

NAME A BOOK WITH FAMILY GOALS

val

I love the dynamics between Pearl and her brother and sister in Valentine by Jodi McAlister. You can tell they love each other dearly but their dynamic is very different from the average family.

FULL MOON

NAME A BOOK WITH A WEREWOLF

41865

The very first book I read with Werewolf’s in the story. Although I like Jacob I was team Edward and team vampire all the way. I have read many other books featuring werewolf’s but this book started it all for me. 🙂

MOONCAKES

NAME A KIND OF FOOD IN A BOOK THAT YOU WISH WAS REAL

3

Chocolate frogs from the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling. I am the biggest sweet tooth and these sound like they would be my favourite snack for the train ride to Hogwarts!

RABBIT

NAME YOUR FAVOURITE CREATURE FROM A BOOK

sjm

Abraxos my sweet baby!! He is the creature to rule all creatures! He is EVERYTHING!!!!!! Just in case you didn’t know Abraxos is a wryven from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas. And I have still NOT read Kingdom of Ash yet so please no spoilers!!!

CHANGE

A CHARACTER THAT MAKES A SIGNIFICANT CHANGE TO THE PLOT SINCE HE/SHE DID SOMETHING TOO MANY TIMES

So, I don’t really get this question. Like a character that makes mistakes all the time? Or an annoying character so they ruined the book? Or a scheming character that just kept trying to make their plans come to life??

sb

I am going to go with the last one and say Leigh Bardugo’s The Darkling. He is one determined character and his actions push the plot on in more than one occasion.

LANTERNS

NAME A TOY OR GAME IN A BOOK THAT YOU LIKED TO READ ABOUT

7955579

Wizards Chess in the Harry potter books by J. K. Rowling. I find the Muggle version pretty boring and not for me. But The magical version sounds much more action packed and interesting!

AUTUMN

NAME A BOOK WHICH YOU FEEL IS THE BEST TO READ IN AUTUMN

17675462

I don’t really match my reads to the seasons. I am more of a mood reader and just read whatever I feel like despite the time of year. However, this book and in fact the entire series gives off very Autumn/ Halloweeny type vibes. Maggie Stiefvater made a really magical world in The Rave Cycle series.

FESTIVAL

NAME YOUR FAVOURITE FESTIVAL IN A BOOK

31076583

I have to go with Winter Solstice in ACOFAS by Sarah J. Maas as well. It was just so magical and sounds like it would be a beautiful time full of love, family and friends. In fact, I like many of the celebrations in this world, seems like there is a different party every week! ❤

Tag you’re it!
