Hello, my angels ~
For this month, it was Chrissy’s turn to choose the questions, and I loved what she decided on!
For those of you just joining in on the fun, here’s a run down on what the fluff goes on. Basically, Chrissy and I get together each month and one of us picks out 5 questions themed around our bookish favorites. Then we each give our answers and we both write our respective posts to you all!
Now, let’s talk about Chrissy! Chrissy is an amazing book blogger who you all can find over on https://chrissysbooks.com, or you can click the link attached to her name. 10/10 blog posts and book reviews, highly recommend. So please, go show her some love, angels!
Without further ado, let’s get into our 5 April Favorites!!!
1) Favorite Imaginary Book World that You Would Like to Most Live In
Ash: This one was actually pretty difficult for me, but after a lot of consideration (I’m making this sound a lot more deep than it actually is but oh well), I decided that it’d have to be The Grishaverse from Leigh Bardugo’s series, the Shadow and Bone Trilogy, the Six of Crows Duology, the Nikolai Duology, and also The Language of Thorns, a standalone novel. This world has completely entranced me since I first read Six of Crows so I don’t think I really had another option.
Chrissy: Is it weird to say that I would like to live in the forests with Winnie the Pooh and the gang? Haha, I think it sounds to nice there, I would totally be at peace and would spend my days eating honey with Pooh and chatting to all the animals. Also I adore winnie the pooh stories, so sweet!
2) Favorite Book to Movie Adaptation
Ash: Okay, so here’s the thing — I don’t really watch book to movie adaptations. Either I read the book and don’t watch the movie, or I watch the movie and never read the book. I’m trying to combat this though! I actually just recently read Call Me By Your Name by Andre Aciman but I haven’t watched the movie yet, though I am planning to!
Chrissy: I’m actually exactly the same as Ash here, I only ever watch the movie, then don’t read the book, or vice versa! I have to say that I really liked Love, Simon. I thought the movie did pretty great justice to the book! It’s a sweet story and I enjoyed the movie too. I also really liked the movie adaptation to The Color Purple. They went above and beyond with the movie, all the characters were as described in the book, and I really enjoyed both the book and movie. Great cast too!
3) Favorite Book that was Recommended by a Friend
Ash: Hands down, it’s They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera (though, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is also pretty high on this list). This novel was recommended to me by a good friend of mine, Nikki (@xonikkee), and I live-texted her as I cried during it. And when I was finished, I sent her a copious amount of videos throughout the course of two days explaining to her how much I loved it, and how I would never recover from this heartbreak. Fun times, truly.
Chrissy: I had never heard of Daphne Du Maurier until my buddy Jeny told me about her, I absolutely fell in love with the book Rebecca as well as My Cousin Rachel. Such good books! I loved them both so much. Still to this day, I think it was one of my favorite reads and I always recommend Rebecca anyone that wants a good suspense novel. That book will never go out of style, great classic read.
4) Favorite Childhood Book
Ash: If you’re following me, then you probably know that it’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. And if not, then now you know! But basically, I have been a fan of this book for so many years and am obsessed with everything about it.
Chrissy: Yeah I’m gonna have to have the same answer as my first response. I LOVE Winnie the Pooh. Ugh I just wanna give him a big cuddle, such great stories. I also really liked The Lion King. I used to have the book when I was younger and loved looking at all the pictures. Such great meanings and morals behind the stories too.
5) Favorite Reading Format, Physical Books or E-Books
Ash: Physical!!! There was a long period of time in which I only read physical books but I’ve actually recently started reading a few e-books! Speaking of, I think I’m going to go look for some free ones now, even though I have so many other books to read. Oof, why am I like this?
Chrissy: 100% Real books, all the way! There’s nothing like holding, smelling and getting the full experience of a real book. I also like being able to see how far I am with it, and generally love the feel of holding one. I have read a few e-books and tend to get ARC in that format, but my true love will always be real books, love the smell of them, old, new, they’re just awesome.
Thanks for tuning in, guys! Talk to you guys soon!
