This is the second part of the How to fall in love with a bookworm. To understand more about it, check the intro of the first section, here.
So, here I go:
13. What’s more important to you: the way a book is written, or what the book is about?
I think the contents of the book are more important than the way a book is written. For instance, The Name of the Wind by Patrick Ruthfuss, well written but it bore me.
14. What author, living or dead, would you most like to have dinner with?
15. If you could hang out with a literary character for the day, who would it be?
Kruppe!!! KRUPPE from the Malazan series! He’s hilarious!
16. If you could be a literary character, who would it be?
Rincewind from the Discworld series!
17. Have you ever written a fan letter to an author?
Yes, to Brandon Sanderson. Saying in it that I loved him in the most heterosexual way.
18. Is there any book that, if I professed to love it, you would be turned off? Is there any book that would impress you in particular?
I’d be turned off if someone I’m interested in reads and enjoys the kind of books like Twilight or Fifty shades of grey.
I’d be impressed if someone I’m interested in is reading a sci fi or a fantasy book.
19. Is there a book you feel embarrassed about liking?
Nope. My taste is legen.. wait for it… dary!
20. Are there books you feel proud of liking or having finished?
Too much to count!
21. Have you ever lied about having read a book?
Not really, can’t see the point in doing that.
22. Do you keep track of the books you read?
Yes, any sane bookworm would do that.
23. How do you form opinions about what you read?
I don’t know how to answer that.
24. What authors do you think are overrated? Underrated?
Steven Erikson is hugely underrated, while George R.R. Martin is wayy too overrated. No disrespect but there are many more talented authors out there who deserve more attention.
