Emma’s Questions

Who is your favourite fictional antagonist / villain?

Emma is starting strong, isn’t she? I really, really need to think about this one… let’s see. The one coming to mind right now is the priest, father Konstantin, from the Winternight thrilogy by Katherine Arden. I hated that character with all my being and that’s something.

If you could go to any fictional worlds for a month where would you go?

Still going strong here because this is so hard to answer :)). Hmmmm… Okay so I would die in a week probably but I would love going in the Grisha Universe and meet Kaz and the band ❀ If I were to choose a longer life, I would go to the New Commonwealth and Luna to meet Cinder and her team haha.

What’s the most beautiful book cover that you have seen?

There are so maaaaaaaaany!!! I am so happy publishers really give a lot of effort to covers! I will resume to my own shelf and choose my Collector’s edition of Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom. Of course I am biased, d’oh. I will choose these two over anything.

What is your favourite Harry Potter GIF?

I am actually not a big user of gifs xD let’s see what I have to choose from, I will get to the gif thing, type in Harry Potter and choose the one I like most πŸ˜€

Okay, biased again. I chose this one with Dobby because it’s Dobby and Dobby is a free elf and Dobby is the best, okay?

Write out a teaser sentence from the book you are currently reading?

“If I’d been in a white nightgown, Father would have seen me by now, but the di Sangro family wore red, so everything I owned was a deep shade that turned black in the moonlight.”

Do you think that you could survive a dystopian YA novel?

Ahahahhahahahahhaha nope.

Who would you least like to have as a book boyfriend? (because we love being quirky)

Least like? Is Voldemort included because that is the very obvious choice :))
