I’m so excited to do this tag! Tags are always really fun, so let’s get started!

What fictional character has the best style?
I love Lou’s style from Me Before You. I know it’s not technically the ‘best’ but I just love the confidence and pride she wears her outfits with. Also, I imagine she looks pretty cute in them (at least, Emilia Clarke does).

Your book girlfriend/boyfriend/ fictional crush?
Ooh jeez, I have a HUGE list. But I’ll try to narrow it down. Jay Gatsby, Draco Malfoy, Baz Pitch, Rhysand (ACoTaR), Jem Carstairs, Will Herondale (fun fact: I had a crush on a guy at my school named Will, so I named him Will Herondale in my phone because WH is perfect), Luna Lovegood, Hermione Grainger, Mor, and Amren (ACoTaR)

Ever loved a character but than started hating them?
Tamlin from ACoTaR. He’s the WORST now.

Biggest/Longest book on your shelf?
Daughters of the Moon, by Lynne Ewing. I have the first three books in one, and it’s somewhere around 900 pages.

It’s probably the collectors edition of Wicked I own.

Do you have any book posters?

I have one, the House guide that comes in the back of some of the Glass Sword copies.

Um… I don’t really have one, but the Me Before You soundtrack has The 1975 on it so I’ll go with that.

A book story you miss/ wish would continue?
The Lunar Chronicles. I honestly would read a book about Winter just doing nothing. Her doing nothing, forever. I want this.

Illuminae’s. It’s so clever and intricate, especially the blacked out words on the hardcover that are written on in the book sleeve.

Action or Romance?

Where do you go when a sad moment happens?
